One from the drafts 5th Jan 2018: Who’s leaving? Arsene want’s them all to stay..except that one…

Discovered this the other day… interesting reading…. WG We all know Arsene can be stubborn, he’s media-savvy and uses spin like a cloak of invisibility to protect the club from criticism. People have been listening to it for too long though, they’re now tuned in to his politician-esque swagger and can see right through it. […]

Where will Arsene Wenger go now?

Revered in France, highly respected across Europe and of course the globe for the brand of football that he created at Arsenal.

The magic of Santi Cazorla

He’s every bit the little magician isn’t he? The diminutive, two-footed schemer who has an eye for a pass and great movement off the ball. Would it be a disservice to also call him a battler? I don’t think so because it is the greatest compliment for a player of his type. Quite often similar […]

Marouane Chamakh, forgotten Brylcreem star of the 2010-2011 season began that season with verve and confidence. He came from a successful Bordeaux side, with the full confidence of his manager and love of the fans to Arsenal where expectation was high after some great performances in the Champions League against Juventus and Bayern Munich.   […]

Hazard warning – Marin makes a stand

Thomas Vermaelen has been passed fit for the game this weekend. As the captain I expect him to return to the starting line-up although it is unclear who might drop out. Both BFG and Koscielny had super games last week at Cited and deserve to keep their spot, but someone will have to drop out […]
