Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal Revolution mirrors the the calm, ruthlessness of George Graham 1986-88

I suggested in a social media post the other day that I felt Arteta was showing a similar calm, assured ruthlessness as a young manager that Arsenal supporters witnessed in the early tenure of George Graham. I thought I would try and elaborate in this week’s column. Arteta – like Graham – arrived with a […]

Something old, something new, from Adidas to Edu – Arsenal’s Summer roundup

by Matt Lorrimer-Roberts (@MattLR28) #wecaredoyou Over the past few weeks we have seen many things come out from Arsenal.

Wenger is a legend, at our club and globally. I must say I have reservations on his methods, and our club needs a change. Still, I revere the man. Arsenal has always set the agenda, and Wenger has played a hand in that. So it bothers me to hear people say: “Seaman, the back four, […]

A Swede indeed in our hour of need – Arsenal Unsung Hero

Ah, the halcyon days of youth. I almost remember them well… It was Summer 1994, and myself and my younger brother had just watched our first full World Cup (my parents’ dislike of football meant that Italia 90 went under our radar until the semi-final stage, when, at my grandparents’ house – my dear Northern […]
