I have a very old drum here that I simply have to bang again having watched the EFL Cup Final being decided by officiating errors rather than the excellent football that was played. Southampton will long feel hard done by, and football supporters everywhere will understand their feelings of disappointment tonight. It will live with […]

Southampton’s journey to the EFL Cup Final has robbed us of a weekend fixture so the internet is rife with speculation rather than much hard news. Injuries continue to be the most tangible snippets out there. Reports that Santi Cazorla is out for the remainder of the season will surprise few, but it is desperately sad […]

The car was in for an annual service and MOT today, so I got to have a holiday and catch the Arsene Wenger press conference live. I’m not quite sure what people were expecting to hear, or rather I probably do, but it was never going to be more than a demonstration of him putting […]

Watching Mohamed Elneny in action for Egypt in Sunday’s African Cup of Nations Final was a roller-coaster experience.

Among it all the update on the figure raised for the Arsenal Foundation on this season’s charity matchday against Stoke City earlier this month. £258,214, a new record sum donated by the players, staff, and supporters of the Arsenal. Well done […]

Twenty-four hours on and it has been interesting seeing the different takes that people have on the performance of the team and certain individuals against PSG. Of course that isn’t a surprise. Why would we all agree? The only thing that most could sign up to was the fact that this was another uninspiring start […]

A ‘window of opportunity’ has presented itself. There is a gap of an hour between England finishing and Alexis, I mean Chile, starting. I may even stay up long enough to see Alexis hop off the pitch on his good leg. Seriously, how much bandaging did he have on just to get through training with […]

Apologies for absence since Monday. I haven’t been resting, and next week you will hopefully enjoy the product of one evening this week. More on that to follow. So what to write about at last knockings on a Friday night after England have beaten Scotland 3-0, and not even the team knows quite how. I […]
