What a strange weekend this is turning into. Football was meant to be played on Saturday afternoons, maybe Sunday as a last resort. Instead he who pays the piper calls the tune and if Sky say we have to play on Monday evening three days before going away to Barysaw (don’t ask!), which in turn […]

The preparation is over, and the real work starts now for Arsenal who need to hit the ground running on Friday. Disappointingly, given the number of fitness and conditioning staff we now employ, we go into the new season with serious level of fitness issues. According to physioroom.com we head the treatment table with eight players […]
