A Tale of Two Cities – Liverpool and Arsenal 2015-21 – Where we were, are and are headed!

I remember being in the concourse of a bustling Liberty Stadium in October 2015, eagerly awaiting team news for Arsenal’s match against Swansea City, hoping for a Joel Campbell start, of all things. As I was waiting in hopeful expectation of the Costa Rican continuing his run in the team, I watched and enjoyed the […]

Players in, players out, what’s it all about? & Koscielny Improves Arsenal in 2 positions

Two weeks later than we had all hoped, our season finally started at Vicarage Road last Saturday. An impressive attacking display, consisting of both pace and purpose during the first forty five minutes, ensured that we went in to the interval, three goals to the good. With the points practically secured during the first half, […]

Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi – What does it mean and where might they fit?

Well perhaps some of the anxiety felt by all honest Arsenal supporters has lessened in the past 24 hours with the imminent signings of Mustafi and Perez.

Only time will tell but another Premier League title would certainly help his […]

Riyad Mahrez to Arsenal: a non-story?

We’ve been linked to Riyad Mahrez by Eurosport France, which apparently is a real network over there which has a credibility which can be safely said to be greater than that of the Sun. Now I know that isn’t saying much but we’ll plod on anyway and try to look at things calmly shall we? […]

New Man or Not?

Much to Review and so much to do Wenger as up to 8 can leave this Summer

In the closing stages of our final game of the season against Aston Villa, for the first time in the entire campaign, I felt truly united with all my fellow Arsenal supporters.

It happened again – A Glorious Day in the Sun in North london

If you are a regular reader of my posts, then you know I’m generally unperturbed by Spurs. For example, I hate Chelsea much more than Tottenham. Guess I’ve just never taken Spurs seriously. Had I been a bit younger (I’m 22), I could have said Tottenham haven’t finished above Arsenal in my entire lifetime. As […]
