  • Swansea 0 Arsenal 4……..A fan’s view and player ratings.
    There is never anything wrong with winning four nil and that, as you know, is exactly what we got and it sure made a pleasant change from going behind and having to claw our way back all the while with stress levels climbing to unhealthy heights before Giroud scores his ... read more

  • Clement to improve ailing Swansea?
    Swansea. What a shame. Lovely small club, promoted to PL. Get big name manager. Do exceedingly well considering budget. Sell best players. Don’t re-invest. Manager wants better players, owners want profits, manager resigns. Then it is all downhill. Managers come and go, results don’t improve. Relegation highly likely. So ... read more

  • Who Let The Dogs Out?
    Apparently this is a new Red Action banner to be displayed at The Emirates Stadium. The Gooniverse has generally responded in two ways: those who think it’s a rather touching idea intended to make Alexis feel at home; and those who think it’s shameful and trivialises a professional football ... read more

  • Better Days?
      The Old Days. We always think they were better … Would you exchange the better standard of football we see every season at The Emirates for the mud and passion of Highbury? Why do I long for a TA/Steve Bould  tackle which would “let the player know you ... read more

  • Arsenal: a transfer epiphany.
    You all know the Didit footballing code. Score goals and then score some more. A simple, elegant and entertaining formula. As always, with the transfer window upon us, my thoughts turn to acquiring expensive goal scorers. At least, my thoughts turned that way until yesterday. I fell off my surfboard, ... read more

  • Giroud Saves the Day — Again. Match Report, plus Player Ratings.
    Arsene Wenger’s record of never losing a 3rd round FA Cup tie remains intact; I think the victory over Preston makes it a consistent 21 years which is pretty impressive but boy were we made to suffer for it – again. Surely we are due a game in which we ... read more

  • Who will play at Deepdale?
    Preston? Never been there. Deepdale?  Never been there.  North End?  Same.  Did I ever see Tom Finney play? No. Have I ever heard of any of PNE’s players? No. Their manager, Simon Grayson …. well, I did see him play for Blackburn.  Preston’s Finest In other words I have no ... read more

  • Will Sanchez leave during this transfer window?
    Maybe it’s just me but I’m worried that Sanchez is seriously considering leaving, in the last few games he has shown signs of disinterest and stands around with his hands on his hips and looks disgusted with his team mate’s decision making. I first noticed this during our loss ... read more

  • Mustafi Refuses To Give Up his Unbeaten Record
    What a crazy game of football! No wonder we are always on telly when we can be so easily  turned over and then forge such an amazing comeback, all in the space of a couple of hours. How can Michael Oliver see Xhaka’s shove as different to the one ... read more

  • Happy Holidays?
    Bournemouth is known as the English Riviera (or it is in my family!!).  We used to holiday there in the days before I was allowed to travel on my own. When I passed my driving test Bournemouth became a weekend destination because there were language schools full of Scandigirls who ... read more

  • Palace: Player Ratings
    A bread and butter win against a poor Palace, with Özil out, presumably to flu, it gave us a chance to see what life would be like with a proper Mesut injury and to my surprise it didn’t look as bad as I feared. His absence seemed to embolden some; ... read more

  • How to beat Palace. Turn Japanese
    Bloody Fat Sam again. Pardew was bad but The Walrus? Didn’t the Palace directors ask WHU about him and his style of football? I am sure Cabaye will be thrilled. What can we expect from today’s game? You already know. FS will start his tenure at CP by  “shoring” ... read more

    32 year old Carlos Tevez transferred from Boca to Shanghai for £70M. Oh, and if you think that’s funny, then let me tell you his wages: £615,000. Per week. We’re talking New World Order stuff here, and I reckon David Beckham could be lacing up again any minute. I would. ... read more

  • NO to boring games: The Plan
    The excuse: we’re poor minnows and can’t out football you, so we’ll out bore you for a point. My response: bugger off and don’t darken our doorstep again. The object: reward adventure. Stamp on dullards. We want goals. My plan: 1 point per goal and a further 2 to ... read more

    This is what I think. Cech: if you keep a clean sheet you must have done something right. Commanding, confident and his usual array of hoofing the ball upfield. 7 Bellerin: the curious thing about Hector is none of us know how good he is going to end up being; ... read more
