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 […]

David Ornstein’s piece on the BBC website about Arsene Wenger signing on for a further two years has not surprisingly poked the hornets nest that is Twitter. If and when the confirmation is released by Arsenal the warm glow of a magnificent performance on Saturday will leave some, that seems certain. I don’t intend to […]

Where There Is Hope…

  Less than 48 hours to go, and the nerves, I will confess, are starting to build. As preparation weeks go this has not been the best. Every day it seems someone else is a doubt for the match, but still that last drop of hope refuses to evaporate. If we were playing them at […]

I remember with some sadness the decision of Muhammad Ali to come out of retirement and fight Larry Holmes to try and claim the world heavyweight title for a record fourth time.

Has this two week international break come at a good time for Arsenal? For the football club, possibly, but not where the supporters are concerned. It’s a fortnight before the players, rightly condemned for their no-show at the Hawthorns on Saturday, can show they have the ability to bounce back from a dreadful run of […]

I am starting writing this, whatever this becomes, at half-time in Monaco. Yes, I am a bit of a masochist watching this week’s Champions League ties after our mauling by Bayern Munich. I’m glad I did though. There is no doubt both matches involving the English clubs have produced absolute thrillers. Whilst many on social […]

As if we needed reminding that the television companies give not a damn for travelling supporters, the latest batch of fixture changes will have come as affirmation of that fact. Arsenal v Manchester City being switched to a Sunday at 4pm is understandable, I suppose. It is one of the bigger fixtures of the season. […]

I have a very old drum here that I simply have to bang again having watched the EFL Cup Final being decided by officiating errors rather than the excellent football that was played. Southampton will long feel hard done by, and football supporters everywhere will understand their feelings of disappointment tonight. It will live with […]
