The Either/Or Conundrum Mistakes happen everywhere and football is no exception. No big drama, we chin up and move on.

Judas to Spurs but Double Winning Invincible Highbury Hero to Gunners – Sol Campbell

The Top 3 Santi Cazorla Trademark Skills and Top 3 Santi Goals – Gracias you Spanish Magician.

It was the drop of the shoulder. Yeah, definitely that. The bit of misdirection done by contorting the body with the utmost authentic intent. Sometimes it helped him dribble the opposite way; other times it meant catching defenders off balance with a hypnotizing shot feint. This was Santi Cazorla to me, and this “sleight of […]

Can either of Arsenal’s former captains fill this seat.

Troubleshooting Arsenal: You Have A Virus, Please Update Wenger OS Immediately!

Why did Wenger change? The recent defeats have made me more pensive about our club than usual. I have said I am Wenger Out for some time here, but then I guess it’s part of my personality and my own vocational experience to be analytical.
