On a balcony in Rio Arsene sips at his morning coffee and chuckles to himself. He is reading just the first page of NewsNow. Aymeric Laporte, David Marshall, Calum Chambers, Carlos Vela, David Ospina, Loic Remy, Clement Grenier, Morgan Schneiderlin, Antoine Griezmann, Mario Balotelli, Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata, Danilo, Lorenzo Insigne, Karim Benzema, Iker Casillas.

Another day, another Twitter storm about that Catalan bloke. It drives me nuts. Almost as much as people moaning about the fact that Twitter is all about that Catalan bloke. A contradiction? You bet I am. Over the course of the past season I got swept along with the highs of the 2013 part of […]

It seems there is only one topic of conversation today. I am denying any responsibility despite having somewhat mischievously mooted the prospect of Luis Suarez as a potential target on the end of season Google hangout with Arseblogger, GS from Gunnerblog, and Andrew Allen.

Confirmation from the BBC of Harry Redknapp’s departure from White Hart Lane has sparked anger and dismay in North London. Supporters have been unable to contain their ire and bombarded social media sites, such as Twitter, expressing outrage at the decision. The self-confessed ‘big Arsenal fan‘ has won huge backing from half of North London […]

Turning Bertie

Well, how was that for a Bank Holiday Sunday? If Carlsberg did them blah blah blah. I’m not sure the nerves will survive the tensest of finishes on Sunday, but the fact that a grip on third place is back in our soapy hands is an entirely unexpected bonus. I’m seeing lots of talk to […]
