Dear England: love Saka all you like, but hands off – he’s ours!

To the shock of absolutely nobody, I didn’t want England to win the Euros. I make no apologies for it. It’s how football works. When Arsenal went out of the Europa League, I didn’t start supporting Man Utd because they got further. On the contrary, I put pretty much all the energy that was left […]

Bloody hell! Score some goals! An historic look at Arsenal’s current predicament.

BLOODY HELL, SCORE SOME GOALS!As if it was easy… As a 37 year-old man, I couldn’t fully appreciate the boring, boring Arsenal days; when I first met the Gunners, in 1994, the George Graham era was scarily close to its end – although none had a clue about it. The Cup Winners’ Cup final was […]

Shit officiating

The Gunners prove they are not shy as the officials hang them out to dry: Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal

So the near-impossible didn’t happen despite my somewhat elevated expectations and we went down to City at the Etihad. However, while I do not feel particularly upbeat about the loss itself (no one ever does, do they?), yesterday we didn’t see a capitulation akin to that at Anfield. There’s a lot of talking points to […]

A replacement of the Guardiola ilk wouldn't need Wenger to be upstairs

Does Arséne have Pep in his Step?

They hang over us like a cloak of impending doom: big games against our top-of-the-table rivals which have given Gooners little joy in recent years.
