Watching Mohamed Elneny in action for Egypt in Sunday’s African Cup of Nations Final was a roller-coaster experience. His elation at putting his side in front in the first-half was the bright spot of the weekend for many Gooners. I couldn’t help but wonder what condition he would be in mentally after Cameroon first equalised, […]

With a little help from their friends the Arsenal Supporters Trust today launched     a survey into current views of Arsenal supporters about the prospect of having a safe-standing trial at the Arsenal.

What The Press Say

Twenty Isn’t Plenty

On Saturday I have to thump out a preview of our trip to Burnley which means I would have to abbreviate any attempt at covering the last twenty years in the life of Arsenal Football Club. The Arsene Wenger years have taken the club in a direction few could have foreseen in 1996, and even […]
