At what price do we want Silverware?

On the cusp of the game against Ipswich its worth thinking about this a little. What cost would you be prepared to take for the Carling Cup? Two, three, four years ago we were calling it the Worthless cup and were referring to it as a Tin Cup competition and we couldn’t be more disinterested, […]

Good result, lets keep up this momentum

Football games are all about momentum. If you win a game well you take that confidence into the next game. In-form players feel everything is going to come off for them so they try to be a little bit more spontaneous and creative. Look at Nasri as an example of this. Our first eleven in […]

Performance required!

Much has been made of our slack performances in the cups. During this our league form hasn't faltered and credit for that where its due, its always been clear where Wenger's focus lies. Be honest, we all know he wants the league. Today we welcome the Latics to the Emirates, where another performance is required. […]

Exacting revenge at the Emirates

On a cold winter night we stood at the DW watching Arsenal capitulate to a Wigan side that looked hungrier than us, more organised than us and generally performed better than us.

Turning the lights on at Elland Road

With the visit of Arsenal, Ken Bates was forced into investing an extra 50p in the meter to keep the floodlights on in what was a thrilling game of football.

As jokes go, pretty poor to be honest…

Losing 1:0 isnt the problem for me, Ipswich fought for everything and deserved their goal. Losing AT ALL to Ipswich is a problem for me. Wenger will say it was unfortunate but we still have to play them at the Emirates and we’ll put it right there…but if they park the bus in front of […]

Koscielny – a lot better than people think

Watching the opening minutes of the match tonight made me think. Koscielny is now someone I am happy to see named at the back. I don't have the trepidation I had about him 4 weeks ago. His performances in the last 6 games have been good and I think he is easily beginning to justify […]

I’ve got a brand new combine harvester…

The recently appointed Paul Jewell will have to watch from the stands as he was not appointed in time to direct the Tractor Boys on their visit to us at the Emirates. The recently departed Roy Keane would have been rubbing his hands together with glee at this fixture and will be gutted not to […]
