I think it’s fair to say that most Arsenal fans ended last season somewhat disappointed, having thrown away our chance to finish in the Champions League positions. We certainly shared in that disappointment, but looking back, finishing 5th was something we would certainly have taken at the beginning of last season. On top of this, […]

Winning the FA Cup gives this Arsenal squad a shot at redemption: here’s hoping they take it!
July 31, 2020 0
The Importance Of Winning The FA Cup It has been a season to forget at the Emirates which was dragged out by the forced stoppage, but while our position in the table and the performances on the pitch have not been up to the expected standard, there is still a possibility that we can end […]

February 24, 2020 0
Last week news went round the entire world that UEFA had banned Manchester City from all European competitions for the next two seasons. There were a few things that came to mind.

December 13, 2019 1
ADRENALINE MAN Positives, Needs and Hopes He didn’t score. He wasn’t really the star of the show. He was however, the instigator. It’s not the first time that Gabriel Martinelli’s infectious attitude and energy have shown to be contagious. Prior to the 69th minute, Arsenal were in with a fantastic chance of coming second in […]
New Season, New Hope: how Arsenal’s signings reveal Emery’s intent
July 1, 2019 2
Welcome, new season! While the Club is busy launching the new home kit, which will finally see us leave Puma and embrace Adidas, I am reflecting about the upcoming season and the expectations that go with it. The recently leaked (was it, though?) commercial about the new home kit has gone viral for various reasons, […]

For Arsenal fans, victory on Wednesday evening is all that will matter. A European trophy, a return to the Champions League and a significant influx of cash that will hopefully give Emery the tools to rebuild and restructure a somewhat dysfunctional squad will be significant reward for what has been at times an underwhelming season.

With just a couple of days now till the Europa League Final in Baku. I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane to take a look at our previous endeavours in Europe. All in all it has to be said for a club of Arsenal’s stature we’ve underachieved in European competition. Just two trophies […]

May 8, 2019 8
I believe the 2018/19 Premier League season is a sign of things to come… With one match to play and so many positions still in contention -including top of the log – it is a sign of the growing competitiveness in the top European football leagues, and in particular the English League, with its vast […]
