FA FA Cup Final preview – We’re underdogs but not by much/Combined AFC/CFC 11

We’re all buzzing naturally for the FA Cup final vs. Chelsea.   Lampard has done well for them to get the top four in his first season. And either he or Arteta could be another person in the list of both managers and players who have won the FA Cup.   Now, are Chelsea favourites? […]

Football is back(ish)! Probably. Possibly. Maybe. *Watch this space…

Arsenal will be playing Manchester City on June 17 to kick off the Premier League’s frantic attempt to complete the 2019/20 season before August 2nd. Manchester City will host Arsenal at a neutral venue – in all likelihood one of these stadiums supposedly in contention: Brighton (The Amex), Southampton (St. Mary’s), West Ham (London Stadium), […]

Is Granit Xhaka the Swiss Charlie Adam or the Swiss Andrea Pirlo?

  Granit Xhaka is a player whom I like. I think under both Wenger and now Emery, he is not being utilised properly. There is a podcast I watch/listen to a lot named Cheeky Sport, and in a recent show one of the hosts called Xhaka “the Swiss Charlie Adam….” Now, this was intended to […]

Berge - Reportedly wanted by Arsenal

Sander Berge to Arsenal? A short scouting report from Norway.

  When Dave (my footballing soulmate) come calling and ask you for a scouting report on Norwegian midfield talent Sander Berge, you have no other choice but to deliver. Although I do not know that much about Berge. I have seen him play twice for the Norwegian national team, and that is it. He did […]

Where the Gunners Won the Final -The Little Moments that made a Big Difference

The Arsenal we know and love was on full display Saturday. They showed a blend of industry, guile, and fluid attacking football that helped me fall in love with this team over a decade ago. Regardless of whether or not you feel Alexis’ early goal should have stood, you can’t argue that we were the […]

Arsenal to face a Tricky Summer of Contract Negotiations from Potentially a Position of Weakness

It is a quiet time for Arsenal and the Premier League during the international break but this only leaves Arsenal fans with more time on their hands to squabble like children in the social media playground. Those who want Wenger to go and those who want him to stay spend all day attacking each other […]

A Partnership worth re-emulating

Xhaka with Kante truly would be the New Vieira and Petit as Arsenal remain a top destination

Having closely monitored Granit Xhaka’s performances in his three appearances for Switzerland during their Euro 2016 campaign to date, I was surprised to hear the recently appointed Hibernian manager, Neil Lennon’s assessment of our recent addition. In Neil’s assessment, he stated that he hasn’t been overly impressed by what he has seen so far and […]

Two player who would not have improved us????

Kante and Payet would not have improved us says Arsene!! – Simeone Would

I have frequently criticised Arsene during the current campaign and he got it wrong yet again last weekend against the Hammers. This time with a decision made prior to kick off, with him bizarrely keeping faith in David Ospina and naming the returning Petr Cech amongst the substitutes. This decision became a bigger source of […]

De De De De De De De De De De De De Danny Welbeck – The Come Back Kid Saves the Day

Let me get this out of the way first: Arsenal deserved to win the game. Those who say we were lucky to win it are partly right, but saying that without context would not be doing justice to the Gunners. The reality is such: we played Ranieri’s men off the park. We had 78% of […]
