A Fan’s Firsthand View of Arsenal’s 70/71 Historic Double – Part 2

The cold snap over Christmas continued into the New Year and Arsenal’s FA Cup third round tie against non-league giant killers Yeovil Town was postponed due to a frozen pitch. Many a big club had come unstuck on their infamous sloping pitch and the non-league side were angry and upset about the referee calling off […]

Highbury Hero George Eastham – the Playmaker with the Midas Touch

It’s been quite a while but who fancies another trip down memory lane in the time machine. Today we’re going all the way back to November 1960. When Arsenal signed a man who every player plying their trade in England today owes a small debt of gratitude. It’s playmaker supreme George Eastham. George was the […]

The Good, The Bad and the Downright Ugly – Player Performances at Stoke

POSITIVE Aaron Ramsey The Welsh Jesus has returned. Against Stoke, Ramsey showed a glimpse of the player who shone in the 13/14 season. His first touch was sharp, it allowed him to quickly pick out an offensive pass; no more 360′ wide-turns, slowing down our attack. Watching him off the ball was a revelation: his […]

Stoke Destroyed by Marauding Monreal, Alexis’s Willpower, Giroud’s Near Post Instincts and Rambo at 10!!

I think the only appropriate place to start this report is to apologise for something I said after we lost to Tottenham: “And barring four wins in five remaining games, our total this season won’t be better than in 2016. Want a bet we won’t amass 12+ points before the end of May?” I hold […]

Monreal back to the left with Koscielny returning and Rob Holding his place for Stoke

To the Mordor we go today, and it’s fair to say I’d prefer most other places to Stoke at a crucial time like this. But beggars can’t be choosers. A win will put us within a point of Liverpool, who visit the Hammers on Sunday, heaping pressure in Klopp’s men to perform. I do not […]

It is just over a week since Arsenal came from behind to dispatch Stoke City relatively comfortably at the Emirates Stadium.

The Most interesting selection of Season? – Ramsey/Coq, Ox/Iwobi, Walcott/Perez??

Howdy. We face Stoke today and this presents us with a chance to go top of the league, at least temporarily. Chelsea don’t play till Sunday, but there’s another hitch though: we’ll have to beat Stoke by three or more goals to go top. This doesn’t look too big an ask when you take into […]
