It’s Tuesday evening and I am watching my second Champions League match of the day. It’s a very strange feeling to say the least. Casually, I wonder if Ivan and Arsene are watching and have the same feeling? After nineteen consecutive campaigns we are the little boy with his face pressed up against the sweet shop […]

It’s been a crazy few days which promise to get even crazier in the final month of the transfer window. Neymar to Qatar Saint Germaine at around 230m euros? Maybe with an over-priced Verratti making the reverse journey. Real Madrid reported, falsely as it turned out according to Monaco, agreeing a 180m euros deal for […]

The end of another glorious weekend, weatherise, and whisper it softly, but the last weekend without Arsenal football until next May! Seven pre-season matches kick off with a tour of Australia and China in the next fortnight. On Thursday morning at 11.00 (it’s 8pm local time) we play Sydney FC. Hopefully the work laptop will […]

Nearly

It’s been a nearly day for supporters of the Arsenal. We have nearly, if usually reliable journalists are on the money, clinched the signature of Alexandre Lacazette. The French international is said to have undergone a medical at Shenley today, but that may have run into a second day as we have a host of […]

Apologies

This was supposed to be a post on last night’s Q&A with Ivan Gazidis and an excellent follow-up session with the one and only Romford Pele. Apologies. Instead it is only a selfish, and brief, tirade against an organisation that rode roughshod through ten years worth of work on this blog today. Photobucket, a caring, […]

Same Old Story

We’ve seen this film before. England versus Germany goes to penalties. This time it is the U21s denied in the cruellest fashion in the European Championship semi-final. Forgive me overseas ‘holics, but our success in the U20 World Cup had set up (once more, unrealistic) hopes of another tournament triumph. Calum Chambers did his reputation no harm […]

It’s summer, and for me in recent years the lack of the Arsenal has allowed me to spend time experimenting with new tastes. This evening it was a balti naan, two products I have enjoyed before but not in a kind of Asian calzone. Very tasty, and followed up with a bottle of Tennessee cider blended […]

He Loves Us, He Loves Us Not

Forgive me if I am a little confused this evening at something of a non-story. The Arsenal have announced that we will receive an allocation of 28,300 tickets for the FA Community Shield against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday August 6th. That makes it almost the equivalent of the number we received for the FA […]

So, I’ve taken a breather, enforced by a combination of wonderful cricket and the election here. I’ve been riling a lot of people about the latter so it is off limits on the blog. It’s a football blog after all. I don’t want to lose half of my readership! It’s been a strange day today. The […]

The awful events of last night in and around London Bridge were a reminder that in the happiest of times we need to remain vigilant and aware of the acts of others. The response has been predictably both understanding and yet defiant at the same time. London will not be cowed into submission by these […]
