Arsenal loans Ainsley Maitland Niles to West Brom: shrewd business or tragic misstep? You decide…

  So, Transfer Deadline Day passed through with not too many fireworks from the Arsenal camp. Most of the touted departures happened except maybe for Reiss Nelson. The most interesting departure to me wasn’t really about the player but the choice of club for Ainsley Maitland-Niles. West Bromwich Albion? I mean no disrespect to […]

Wenger In or Wenger Out – We can still respect each other and back The Arsenal

As we head into the weekend that could well represent the watershed for Wenger and Arsenal in 2016/17 and beyond, we are delighted to present a lovely and quite unusual piece from ‘The Arsenal Circular’, Graham Perry. Tomorrow our beloved Gunners will walk out at Wembley in an FA Cup Semi Final with so much […]

Crystal Palace 3-0 Arsenal: a ship without a captain or a sense of direction

In my time supporting Arsenal I have seen a lot and been through a lot. It’s been a mostly stressful and largely unrewarding journey, as my hobby started in the summer of 2004. Hence, unless we count Community Shield, I’ve only watched Arsenal win three major pieces of silverware. However, I can without a shadow […]

Crystal Palace preview: another win a must as the run-in heats up

Howdy. We face Crystal Palace today and it’s another must-win situation for us. I’m talking more our future prospects here than a need to win because of a shambolic run. Our last five league games will be extremely tough to get all 15 points from (Spurs, United, Everton, Stoke and Soton in there somewhere), so […]

No New Year’s Honours at the Palace for Fat Sam just a Gunners Salute – AFC v CPFC

Howdy. It’s a face-off with Crystal Palace for Arsenal on New Year’s day and a chance for the Gunners to close in on City and Liverpool, seeing as they play one another. What’s more, Tottenham host Chelsea on January 4th, providing us with a further opportunity to make up the lost ground. Fat Sam will […]

Flamini opens up on a painful reunion

Mathieu Flamini talks about facing his old friend Ozil on New Year’s Day

The End of a Fine Bromance? I knew this day would come. I didn’t want to believe it would happen, but eventually it had too. We had become so close, friends, confidants, we did everything together and now it had come to this and I just don’t think I can do it, I just can’t. […]

Is Jack Back to Grand Slam Fat Sam? – Sunderland v Arsenal

Howdy. We play Sunderland today and in order to regain our top 3 spot we need a win. However it most likely won’t be a straightforward game, seeing as Sunderland face an uphill battle for survival and Newcastle’s point at Anfield did little to alleviate the Black Cats’ fears. Head-to-head We have a pretty good […]

Can Wenger afford to risk resting Ozil v Black Cats? For who?

Howdy. We start our FA Cup defense on Saturday by hosting Sunderland in the 3rd round. Once again we play a Premier League side, having played Hull City last year and Spurs before that – in fact, I don’t remember when was the last time we played a lower-league opposition in the 3rd round, but […]

Wearsiders Worry Wenger’s Winners will Worsen the Woes of their Weakened team

So we begin our second defence of the FA Cup in as many years. Successive triumphs in 2014 and 2015 were my first trophy winning experiences as an Arsenal fan and it was then I realised how stupid arguments such as ‘It’s only the FA Cup’ or ‘The League Cup is not even a major […]

The team may have to pick itself today but a balance maybe founded in adversity – Arsenal v Sunderland Preview

  Howdy. It’s been a gloomy couple of days for the Arsenal faithful. Earlier in the week Guardian reported Cazorla suffered knee ligament damage, which is likely to keep our ambidextrous regista sidelined for around three months. This news, coupled with a long-term injury to Coquelin, means our central midfield pairing of choice for almost […]
