The international break has arrived a match short of a quarter of the way through the season. We actually go into it as the form team in the Premier League with six wins on the bounce and having displaced the Middlesex Nomads for fourth place. Two points behind the top of the League is quite […]

There is no getting away from the fact that the events of today (Tuesday) have been at odds with the feel good factor generated over the course of the pre-season. The announcements that confirmed the sale of Red & White Holdings Arsenal shares to KSE provoked quite the reaction, understandably. This day has been on […]

In less than 24 hours we get our first look at Unai Emery’s Arsenal against a quality opponent. Atletico Madrid were too good for us in last year’s Europa League semi-final and we have a chance to respond in whatever the International Champions Cup is in Singapore. I for one, and I know many of […]

Russia 2018 Finalists Decided

And then there were two. The final pairings for the last weekend of the 2018 World Cup are known, and if you are French or a Croat you will still be buzzing. Those of a Belgian or English persuasion are probably anticipating the third/fourth place play-off with little relish. The only vague Arsenal interest in the […]

Good morning all, which may or may not be true depending on whether or not you are English or Croatian and currently experiencing the mother of all hangovers. My apologies for the blank week. I have spent it in the garden bar an evening at Lord’s. There is much to catch up on. On Tuesday […]

The second round of fixtures in the group stage of the World Cup has most certainly been a mixed bag for the Gooners present. Mohamed Elneny was substituted early as hosts Russia defeated Egypt 3-1 to qualify for the knock out phase with a match to spare. Alex Iwobi was dropped for Nigeria’s 2-0 win […]

Forgive what will be largely an England biased post even though our lone three lions representative, Danny Welbeck, wasn’t in the starting line-up against Tunisia. Yesterday’s matches ended in mixed blessings for the Gunners. Mesut Ozil posted some impressive stats but a very ordinary Germany were deservedly beaten by Mexico. Joel Campbell, still technically a […]

As I type this latest offering I also have one eye on Alex Iwobi’s performance for the Super Eagles against Croatia. He’s the second Arsenal player to have started a match in this tournament. Mohamed Elneny was the first and he, by all accounts, had a very good game against Uruguay. Sadly I missed it […]

Farewell Little Mozart

That was quite the weekend, the highlight being the Tomas Rosicky farewell match shown live (eventually) on Arsenal.com following a delay caused by a storm in Prague. A World XI comprised largely of Tomas’ former team mates at Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund took on a team of Czech legends in a light-hearted and open contest. […]
