Warm up for Sunday with favourite NLD Videos and Moments

Like most of us, I’m engaged in the North London Derby spirit. I don’t like, nay detest, that lot. They’re not on our level in most – if not all – senses, and they’re not even half the footballing institution that we are. That said, these are some of my favourite NLD moments of the […]

There is actually a third category: neutral commentators who are pretty good at their thing, […]

On the eve of post deadline day hysteria I started on a piece about our striking options without bringing anyone in.

The Lttle Boy within not looking so thrilled today

3 years on from ‘The Statement’ – How did that work out for you Robin?

“Out of my huge respect for Mr. Wenger, the players and the fans I don’t want to go into any details, but unfortunately in this meeting it has again become clear to me that we in many aspects disagree on the way Arsenal FC should move forward. I’ve thought long and hard about it, but […]
