At last there is some real football to distract us from the general air of gloom surrounding the club at the moment. An incedible Saturday in the FA Cup saw a non-league team advance away against a Premier League club and a League One club defeat the champions. While Sunday’s fixtures went as existed the […]

It’s February, so we are playing either Bayern Munich or Barcelona, right? Let me just check the fixture list, ah, It’s Bayern again. But we’re away in the first leg, so that means we have done pretty well in the group stage this season. Had we not pinched the top spot we would have been […]

Right, we can sit here moaning about Arsene, Arsenal, the weather, the economy, and all the rest. Instead we have a game to prepare for, players and supporters alike. It’s become quite an important one too. Consecutive defeats have once again cast us into what looks like being an incredible tussle for second to sixth […]

I only watched two matches, at Stoke and the Emptihad, and in both matches massive penalty shouts were denied by officials who must surely have seen them. Enough of that, other […]

Introspection complete, we have a Saturday 3pm kick-off to look forward to, and an opportunity to reclaim a place or two, or maybe even three, at the top of the table. Such is the nature of the pile-up behind Chelsea at the head of affairs that the fixture computer has offered up an intriguing weekend […]

So last night I suggested we may go to Preston for Saturday evening’s FA Cup third round tie with a starting line-up not too far from what follows. Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Gabriel, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi, Lucas or Reine-Adelaide; Giroud. If they all turn up they should provide a stern test for fellow Invincibles […]

Arsene Wenger’s press conference this morning (do watch it on arsenal.com) was interesting to the extent at the strength of the team he hinted might play before going on to list a veritable who’s who of top players that will not be playing on the day. It meandered a little so I’ve done my best […]
