Black Monday

Twenty four hours on. A good night out helped to ease the gloom that followed our performance at Goodison Park. Reading a couple of quality blogs this morning brought it all back. Most of you I suspect will have read Arseblog and A Cultured Left Foot today. I suspect they reflect the changing mood of […]

999 And Counting

Midweek. Worse than that, a midweek without a game. Fortunately the afterglow of winning at the Lane remains to keep the spirits somewhere north of the equator. Much of the talk has turned to our second consecutive trip in the capital when we visit Chelsea on Saturday, and the fact that it will be Arsene […]

Thank You ‘holics

You become aware when writing a blog that is read relatively widely that not everybody is celebrating the same festivals at the same time. So you may or may not be enjoying some time celebrating the greatest chinese whispers of all time right now or you may be actually working to provide for you and […]

It’s a Tuesday evening, a week to go until Christmas Eve, and almost as long to our next fixture. It’s not even an international break, pft.

Just A Half For Me Please

Tuesday night, and the last fixtures of the latest in a long line of painful international breaks. It is hard to pick a point at which my give-a-toss-ometer registered zero in the gaps in between the finals of the Euros and the World Cup. I followed England quite regularly from the sixties through to the […]

Hello all. Apologies for my absence in the week that has seen the return of the dreaded international break. Looking back at the news it seems little of real interest happened. In the wake of the defeat at Old Trafford the players responded as one would expect. I have to say I felt for the […]

Thank You ‘Holics

Evening all, depending on where you are in the world, of course. If you are here looking for the latest updates about Arsenal players and insider info then you are in the wrong place. Don’t tell anyone I said so, but if you are selective in your reading, the traditional press are still the sources […]

They Are Young, Stupid

So England produced what any Liverpool fan will tell you was a trademark pragmatic Hodgson performance in the Ukraine. Not a classic by any means but the scoreless draw was the end that justified the means, if you catch my drift. Less clear is why Jack Wilshere, clearly still operating at around eighty percent, should […]

Understanding full well what sort of shape I would be in the morning after the North London derby I booked a holiday yesterday. That served two purposes. The hangover duly arrived with the first raising of an eyelid long after I would otherwise have been at my desk. It also meant I could live most […]

There was one major disadvantage to my choice of holiday destination for the last few days. Aside from flaky wireless coverage in the hotel lounge I was largely incommunicado and almost totally unaware of what was going on. However there was an equal and opposite advantage to being there. I was largely incommunicado and almost […]
