A Tale Of Two ‘Keepers

I have just caught up with Arsene’s press conference from yesterday. The topic of Petr Cech came up, not surprisingly, and the question of whether or not he could improve given the different training regime at Arsenal. “Petr Cech was already at the top but I believe that you can never deny that you can improve. He’s […]

Aside from the usual flood of unsourced and wild speculation there is not too much concrete news to comment on. Unless you count the tale of the experienced club captain who extended his contract, and the inexperienced little boy who caused his greater self to crash and burn spectacularly.

I am again indebted to the prolific Snowy, who submitted not one, but two guest posts in the wake of the FA Cup win, knowing the productivity of yours truly plummets when the season ends! Two weeks to the day since that wonderful evening at Wembley seems the right ‘anniversary’ moment to run with that […]

“for an hour we were treated to the sight of Diaby back in the fold. This guy is going to be some player.“ So I wrote back in January 2007 as Abou Diaby returned to the side for the first time since he had his ankle smashed by Dan Smith, a pointless and vicious assault […]

The first weekend ‘sans Arsenal’ is all but a memory, and a very strange one at that. The pining for the Gunners didn’t really kick in on Saturday. Let’s face it, how many Saturday games do we have these days? Besides, I had an expected battle about a broken Hoover to deal with. I emerged […]
