Engaged elsewhere earlier today, I have yet to take in the full story of the Community Shield defeat of the bus stop in Fulham. I am therefore indebted to our very own Lars who answered a call for help after the event and summarised our defeat of the Champions at Wembley, despite doubtless having sunk […]

Most of you will remember a very popular piece on here by our resident sports physio, Trev, back in October. I’m delighted to say he has written another informative look at the changing approach to pre-season conditioning. Trev, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.  So with the trip to Singapore done and the […]

Another Ned classic, for which I am enormously grateful. The one reason why I wish I was around, and a Gooner, three years prior to the arrival of ‘holicdad. My Pop must have been spitting feathers. Thanks Ned, you are a star. Regular sufferers of these histories may remember that I said at the tail […]

A big apology is due for the somewhat haphazard nature of the blog in recent days. I had no idea Cornwall was such a mobile broadband black spot.

Two weeks to the day since that wonderful evening at Wembley seems the right ‘anniversary’ moment to run with that […]

As the 2014/15 season slowly passes into history it is time for one of ours to reflect on a remarkable personal achievement. I think Snowy may overestimate just how many people have achieved the ‘complete’ domestic season, and how often. I know I only achieved it once, in a time when it was very much […]

It is a joy to put Ned’s late offering in front of you. He looks back to an astonishing season when Arsenal, yet to win a major trophy, came closer than most in the twentieth century at that point to a double. Certainly it was closer than any southern team had come, and we would […]

Another guest post for you this evening. A topical piece from our very own Snowy (good man Snowy!) on an aspect of commercialism that loomed large this week. Don’t just look away. Snowy makes a number of valid points and we aren’t playing until Monday night so take time to read the piece and comment, […]
