  • Speed Bumps and a Bright Future

  • Keeping it Classy; Contracts for Ozil, Sanchez, and Giroud
    How has Giroud’s contract slipped under the media radar?  His current form and acceleration to world status over a relatively short period of time have earned him the right to be in the conversation.  The media frenzy is focusing on only Ozil and Sanchez, by way of Wenger.  The actual ... read more

  • Stoke City; Three wins on the Trot
    The victory against Stoke brings us to three definitive wins in a row.  It is reasonable to claim that we disposed of the opposition in all three matches.

  • Bournemouth at the Emirates; Breaking the Run of Draws
    Bournemouth came out with pace against another surprising lineup. I mentioned that it looks like Wenger is trying to prove to his squad that he has a squad!
