Well that was an interesting day. Accounts of Arsene Wenger’s press conference spread quickly on social media and whipped up yet another mini storm. Most controversy was created by his linking our failure to win the title to the poor results suffered at home against the smaller clubs “in a very poor climate”. Whilst one […]

The last day or so has finally seen one of the great injustices in this nation’s history overturned. The extent to which the establishment covered up what really happened at Hillsborough has been out in the open for a while now, and nine good people and true delivered the justice denied to so many for […]

Gunners Firing Blanks

Arsene Wenger opted to go with an unchanged line-up at the Stadium of Light although there was a welcome return to the bench for Jack Wilshere. The Gunners started the stronger and with barely three minutes on the clock Alex Iwobi drilled an effort wide from the edge of the area. Sunderland attempted an immediate […]

I can’t say I am sorry that we are leaving this week behind. The loss of Victoria Wood and Prince, two very different but supreme talents,¬†has left a feeling of gloom hanging in the air. For a couple of days football was quite rightly not at the forefront of the mind. The new week will […]

As suggested in the preview Arsene Wenger opted to make three changes to the side that started against Crystal Palace. Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey, and Olivier Giroud came in for Gabriel, Francis Coquelin, and Danny Welbeck in what looked a very attack-minded set-up.

That is not much good unless you do something with it though. For the second week running we surrendered two oh-so-valuable points to a London club. […]

I thought I would wait until the late game before doing this preview. I wish I hadn’t. City’s comfortable win at the bus stop in Fulham has highlighted the fact that we must be aware of being overtaken ourselves as we set our sights on Tottenham. Temporarily at least we sit in fourth place, and […]

A Hard Day’s Night

It’s after ten. I have just watched West Ham and Barcelona get knocked out of competitions that we no longer have an interest in. I am enjoying their misery as they have enjoyed ours. It’s the way of the football supporter. We should have been celebrating a third FA Cup this season, but we self-destructed […]

Arsene Wenger surprised many by sticking with David Ospina in goal for the trip to Upton Park. The Gunners were unchanged from the team that started successive victories over Everton and Watford. What was about to unfold was madness on a grand scale. So, chronologically the talking points were; Carroll committed two awful assaults in […]
