I cannot lie. The loss of Alexandre Lacazette until October seems significant. He is the only forward we have who can play with his back to goal. I fear he will be badly missed. It happens and it is up to us to deal with it. Perhaps the second interlull will not be such a […]

Let’s set the tone early here.¬†Tottenham have only won two of their 27 Premier League away matches versus The Arsenal. There are rumblings that all is not well in the Middlesex camp. Forgive me if I plead with Unai Emery to throw the kitchen sink at them on Sunday afternoon. The loss of Nacho Monreal […]

To be honest, playing Liverpool away on match day three is a no-lose situation for The Arsenal. Few will expect anything other than a home win. We would still be only three points off the top of the Premier League should that happen, but what of the possibility of us going two points clear of […]

In 1960, a year before the neighbours won their second and last league title, Burnley won their second and last too. They are clubs at a similar level, it would seem. I will hopefully enjoy us seeing off both in the next fortnight. Who will run out against the clarets in the Saturday lunchtime fixture? […]

It has been the most amazing transfer window in a long time. We have undoubtedly signed some serious talent. We’ve lost players as well.

I’ll try and keep it relatively brief as I am also incorporating the ABW live preview from this evening and they offer pretty comprehensive coverage. The team news is that Dany Welbeck is fit to return and will be on the bench at least. Sadly Hector […]

It is hard to believe another Premier League season comes to an end tomorrow. It feels like I’ve only seen half a dozen games. There have been tears and cheers. That’s what football does to us. Back in August if someone had offered us a mathematical chance of finishing fourth I think the general mood […]

Heart pounding? Getting nervous yet. Valencia away is a little over 24 hours away as I type. 3-1 up from the first leg, what could possibly go wrong? Our away record, you say? Yes, our last two aways have seen us ship three goals to Wolves and Leicester, but you may prefer to think of […]

Dear ‘holics, apologies. This is a broken blogger. Over an hour I have worked on the preview. It was a rare good one, honest. Lot’s of good stuff about winning tomorrow to set up another final Sunday of “Tottenham Hotspur, it’s happened again!”. I clicked Save Draft, and bang. It went. WordPress kicked me out. […]
