The draw for the group phase of this season’s Champions League has paired us with three sides we have met before. Indeed we are becoming very familiar with both Bayern Munich and Olympiakos. Dynamo Zagreb and their raucous ‘Blue Boys’ made quite an impression in their last fixture at the Grove nine years ago. In […]

A Grand Day Out

Another reminder, as if it were necessary, of the depth of our fanbase worldwide was provided in the wake of our victory at Selhurst Park. A ‘virtual’ friend was over from Australia, and we had planned via Twitter to attend a match together. As it turned out the only game he was able to see […]

The WWC Warming Up Nicely

I have largely enjoyed watching England Ladies advance to the last eight of the WWC in Canada. There, I’ve said it. I know that puts me in something of a minority, judging by the volume of traffic on my Twitter timeline during the matches, but hell, I’m swimming against the current on the likely signing […]

So Nacho!

The highlight of the Puma home kit launch for this fossil was the opportunity to spend some time with a handful of my blogging peers in the company of Nacho Monreal. I was warned he might not be the most forthcoming of interviewees so what transpired was a pleasant surprise. The informal setting may have […]

Twenty-four long hours on and it is time to reflect on the new home kit launch at Arsenal. Fortunate to have a media event invitation I arrived shortly after six and before long a string of familiar faces gathered in the Foundry restaurant. Well aware that such invitations are a cause for comment on social […]
