  • Mar 18th – West Brom 3 Arsenal 1
    There is little, if any, life left in this team. We are heading into the middle ages here. It’s going quite dark and will be for a while. We actually started really well. We pressed and controlled the game. We dominated possession and started with real energy. We looked good. ... read more

  • Mar 11th – Arsenal 5 Lincoln 0
    Phew. That was close. For once 5 goals are scored and we’re the team on the winning side. We should play non-league opposition more often – it’s highly underrated. Though Brighton and Burnley might not be of the same view. Luckily we’re not Brsenal FC.  And thankfully Lincoln will ... read more

  • March 10th – Bonus Reading
    This will be short and sweet. Anyone that knows me knows that I am of a sunny disposition. Some might even say lighthearted and optimistic. But certainly not the type to be bitter, jaded and cynical. Far from it. But, let’s be clear. Last night and the night before that were ... read more

  • Mar 7th – Arsenal 1 Bayern 5
    OK, bring on Lincoln! For all the likely moaning about this result, AW and the failure of this team it’s hard to be too upset. No-one really expected us to qualify. It was always about respectability and improvement. And up until we were reduced to 10 men we have ... read more

  • March 4th – Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1
    So forget the score and forget any humour. This game was all about team selection. And AW got this one wrong. I liked the idea that he changed up the team just not the actual changes he made. So often people complain that we’re too predictable. Well, be careful ... read more

  • Feb 20th – Sutton 0 Arsenal 2
    We are the champions. We are World Beaters. Bring them on. We showed the world today. We rose to the challenge. Against all the odds. We fought the media and the team won. I’m so proud of this team. And, it only gets tougher in the next round. If ... read more

  • Feb 15th – Bayern 5 Arsenal 1
    What’s the fucking point. Why support a team that won’t support itself? Why even bother. Abject for sure. But, and I’m sure others won’t see it this way, so unnecessary. After the first half it really did not have to be that way. It started as a game of ... read more

  • Feb 11th – Arsenal 2 Hull 0
    Three points.  A minor miracle but not much of an achievement. That was very much like the continuation of my visits to the dentist. Valuable though the victory was there was little in the way of enjoyment or satisfaction. Today we started pretty much how we finished. Disjointed, slow ... read more

  • Feb 4th – Chelsea 3 Arsenal 1
    This was a game of two headers. From one they got a goal and we lost our right–back. And from the second header our new right-back could not score. Two defensive players in similar positions. They scored and we did not. So evidentially we’re not human and we don’t ... read more

  • Feb 2nd – Are we human?
    Are we mammals? Are we human? Do we have a vertebrate? Saturday will confirm our suspicions. Injuries or not, how we withstand the predictable onslaught from Chelsea post our abject abdication on Tuesday will tell us all we need to know about Arsenal. We could lose this game and still, ... read more

  • Jan 31st – Arsenal 1 Ramsey 2
    I fucking knew it. I go to all the trouble to re-design the website for my millions of followers. I spared no expense. Brought in the best minds to work on this. Go through an official launch. And what happens? Fucking Ramsey decides to resurrect the ghost of Arteta. ... read more

  • Jan 28th – Southampton 0 Arsenal 5
    You got to love the F.A. Cup. And you have to love games like this. We cut through them so easily. So much pace and one touch and two-touch football. No-one dwelling on the ball. Quick passes. Did I mention that AR8 was not playing. As the game lined ... read more

  • Jan 3rd – Bournemouth 3 Arsenal 3
    Belated happy new year to you my reader(s). I’ve been unable to post due to the demands of pre-transfer period scouting on behalf of Arsenal. AW himself requested that I help identify targets for this transfer window and subsequently I’ve been traveling the green fields of England searching for ... read more

  • Jan 7th – Preston 1 Arsenal 2
    Again, it was a game of two halves. This feels like the story of our season. Another cliché which holds true is that the game is 20% talent and 80% mental. Or, in our case 20% talent and 60% mental. Our lack of the mental side of the game ... read more

  • Jan 14th – Swansea 0 Arsenal 4
    We were shit and they were shittier. I know I should be happy but there are too many parts of this team I don’t like. I know we won 4-0. I know we helped our goal difference. I know we kept a clean sheet. But I also know we are ... read more

  • Jan 22nd – Arsenal 2 Burnley 1
    Lucky Arsenal? Never. But I’m going out to buy a lotto ticket. They say that good teams have to find ways to win games they don’t deserve; to eek out points. I think we’ve managed to tick that box. What an amazing outcome today. I feel slightly sorry for Burnley. ... read more
