…here’s to the first three points of the season, please. Should they be gained we have a base on which to build. Damn you hope, this is your time. So I previewed the opening match of the 2015/16 season. We didn’t get the three points. Here we are readying ourselves for the last match of […]

So, a season defining week for the good folk of Leicester comes to a conclusion, and we have an opportunity to seal third place at least in the Premier League. We have just the small matter of winning in the Etihad between us and avoiding the Champions League play-off in August. A draw would keep […]

Well that was an interesting day. Accounts of Arsene Wenger’s press conference spread quickly on social media and whipped up yet another mini storm. Most controversy was created by his linking our failure to win the title to the poor results suffered at home against the smaller clubs “in a very poor climate”. Whilst one […]

I can’t say I am sorry that we are leaving this week behind. The loss of Victoria Wood and Prince, two very different but supreme talents, has left a feeling of gloom hanging in the air. For a couple of days football was quite rightly not at the forefront of the mind. The new week will […]

There seems little point in making a blog post after this wonderful piece from Arseblog this morning. If you are only going to read one post today make it that one. If only all who have come to a view about the manager were as respectful. Still here? Well I had better look forward to the […]

Temporarily at least we sit in fourth place, and […]

Twenty Days. That’s how long it is since we trudged out of the Grove, stopping only to applaud the visitors on their victory in the FA Cup quarter-final. Watford are back again on Saturday afternoon, and a repeat of the result less than three weeks ago is unthinkable. If you have listened to this week’s […]

Easter Sunday. A wonderful afternoon of cricket on the box, and how does one follow that? For me it was to watch the highlights of the Arsenal Ladies 3-1 win over Reading Ladies in their opening WSL fixture on Wednesday. Less than five minutes of video doesn’t allow a confident prediction for what lies ahead, […]

Roughly 63 hours after we departed the Champions League in the Camp Nou we step out at Goodison Park for the first of nine remaining Premier League fixtures that may have some significance in Arsenal’s rich history. We are in playing in the north-west at lunchtime on a Saturday. When has that ever gone badly? […]
