The full Wembley experience, warts and all, ended well, but what a meal Arsenal made of their Championship opponents. The tone was set by a bus replacement service followed by a less than salubrious rattler into Paddington packed with exuberant Reading supporters. The tube whisked me to the next port of call. A fabulous Fullers […]

A number of ‘holics have been good enough to share their thoughts with us in recent years. When our very own zicoinexile said he was heading for the other side of the pond this weekend and could he do a report on the Burnley match I ripped his arm out of it’s socket straight away. […]

Once again I owe a huge debt of thanks to one of ours, this time the excellent company that is Steve T, for a guest post covering the U21 fixture at the Grove last night. Steve, thank you for helping out one who has been clocking up the motorway miles this week. It is much […]

A huge thanks to our very own Lars for a report on today’s match which enables me to visit the grandholics tomorrow morning. Thank you sir, and I hope all of you are as fortunate as I to be seeing some special people for Easter.  Before kickoff there were several things to worry about for […]

Arsene made five changes to the team that defeated Manchester United, resting among others the in-form Santi Cazorla. We made a bright start and could have grabbed an early lead but Theo Walcott […]

Well, as nights go that was one of the more memorable ones. Tonight we are celebrating reaching the FA Cup semi-finals after the Arsenal once again produced a disciplined display to claim their first victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford since 2006. I’m aware that half the planet, and therefore the vast majority of […]

Not for the first time of late we started slowly at Loftus Road but as the half progressed we came more and more into it, shading the possession and attempts stats, if not the all important goals scored one. The second-half appeared a different story as we made our class pay, but there was yet […]

Three points secured, our third place regained, this turned into one of the good days after a shaky start. For half an hour it was noticeable how much time was spent looking left from my vantage point, into the Arsenal half. Everton were on top, and far more adventurous than expected. The Gunners brought in […]
