Another Thursday night, another Europa League trip for a few diehards. Moscow is a tough destination at the moment with relations between Russia and much of the western world severely strained. To paraphrase George Graham in 1989 let’s get there, get the win, then get out of there. Roma’s remarkable comeback to knock Barcelona out […]

It may not be the best time to post a preview of the visit of Southampton in 17 hours. You may think differently but I am full with beer-battered cod fillet followed by affogato, and sipping generously on my Laphroaig. The journey will, thankfully, start an hour later than last week. I will appreciate that […]

As I Was Saying

Apologies for the lack of a conventional preview. This week I recorded another episode of A Bergkamp Wonderland podcast in which you will find the ‘holic pound for tonight.

It’s twenty past ten on Wednesday night. In less than twenty hours we travel to Milan for the next instalment of the one competition that theoretically we can still win and qualify for the Champions League. They are enjoying an incredible revival under the old warhorse Gennaro Gattuso. They are unbeaten in 13 games in […]

A week from hell is passing into history, although it is possible the repercussions have yet to be fully felt. Following two comprehensive defeats to a very good Manchester City team we have had the apparent briefing of members of the fourth estate by disgruntled players. If true then there is only one outcome. A […]

When you’ve fallen off a horse the best thing you can do, some say, is to get right back on it. Weather permitting we will be back on tomorrow, and what’s more taking on the same thoroughbreds who gave us a severe beating at Wembley on Sunday. With apologies for the necessary brevity of this […]

The EFL Cup has provided mixed emotions for supporters of my generation. We have played in seven finals and won just two of them to date. It may be the lowest in our list of priorities these days, but it is a trophy and one many would love to see us win again. My first […]
