Farewell to old friends

We say Farewell to Rosicky, Arteta and Flamini v Villa but who else??

Howdy. We take on Aston Villa today in the last game of the season and we all know the possible outcomes: a win can still elevate us to 2nd, a loss drop to 4th. Both scenarios are rather unlikely, so a 3rd-place finish seems in order. Team news update Ozil is back up again, neither […]

I never felt more like beating the Blues when Arsenal win and Chelsea lose!!

We play Chelsea on Sunday and the Blues remain a very tricky opponent for us. We have improved against City and United in the last year or so, but hardly against Chelsea, being held to a goalless draw at the Emirates in April and losing away at Stamford Bridge (thanks to an atrocious performance from […]

Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Arsenal: uninspired Gunners undone by Carvahal’s men

After the euphoria of the past week, I was thinking we were due something tragic. I was dreading it with every joyful conversation I had with other members of the extended Gooner family. After all it is not every day that you’re on a run of form like we were. So anyway, we all know […]
