Bank Holiday Ramble

A long day spent toiling in the sun means this shattered body finds himself in the office with seemingly nothing to watch on the multiple channels available. What better time to pretend there is enough news to base a new, and overdue, blog post. Now that Unai Emery is in place the media have turned […]

Today, I am really delighted and excited to announce the new head coach of Arsenal Football Club as Unai Emery.” With that simple introduction the catalyst for change reached it’s conclusion with Ivan Gazidis stamping his newly-acquired authority on footballing matters at the Arsenal.

Welcome Henrikh Mkhitaryan

I don’t often watch Sky Sports News but I did this evening purely by chance and caught the moment that the exchange deal that took Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United and brought Henrikh¬†Mkhitaryan to North London was announced. It’s a deal that will provoke mixed emotions, indeed already has on social media. However we know […]

You are, aren’t you? Go on, admit it it. You’re still smiling (with a couple of obvious exceptions-sorry D and C). This was the first match following the alleged shift in the balance of power and we were widely tipped in the media beforehand to be staring a defeat in the face. I do understand […]
