A week of football watching on the television was brought to an abrupt and welcome halt by an evening with Ray Parlour in the Legends Lounge at the County Ground here. I was in need of a lift after watching the ease with which Atletico Madrid defeated Marseille in the Europa League Final. The Romford […]

It’s that weekend again. The away leg of the brace of North London derby matches we enjoy (or endure) every season. At least this year we do not have to visit the dive that is White Hart Lane. Hopefully unluckily for them we are off to Wembley, a stadium where we have made nine successful […]

Apparently this is hump day. no longer Wednesday. I think I will stick with the latter. It has been a mixed one and included getting another opportunity at getting to watch the Arsenal women in action on the FA WSL Facebook page. You can, as I type, see the full match here. It was an […]

We Are Ten

It’s a modest sort of a Thursday. Quiet, unassuming, not much in the way of new Arsenal happenings to stir things up. Sure, there are the tailwinds from Tuesday’s draw in Paris. I still don’t know why Granit Xhaka and Olivier Giroud didn’t start. Depending on who you listen to we either won the lottery because Cavani […]

Well, that was very funny, wasn’t it? I think last night provoked the most astonishing range of emotions, and that it ended with most of the football world delighted was a bonus. For one evening the warring factions of Arsenal social media were united by a shared hatred. Great, I thought, I can write all […]
