When 4th becomes a trophy – just for a day

It seems a ridiculous concept that 4th position in the league could cause such happiness for the Gooner faithful. However it wasn’t just 4th that we were able to celebrate yesterday, it was also St. Totteringhams Day. Arguably the best day of the year. It wasn’t a remarkable performance yesterday from Arsenal. There were no […]

Rosicky ignites Arsenal’s gunpowder

We find ourselves at the business end of the season. Teams with nothing to play for now start thinking of warm beaches, blue seas and elaborate cocktails delivered by a nubile waitress on a pittance whilst they laze for days upon end during the hellish period of the close season. For us it’s just plain […]

The Prince and the Fox jumped over the lazy West Ham

OK, so they weren’t lazy. It was a play on words and a poor effort at that. My sincerest apologies to anyone offended.

It has been the most surreal Capital One Cup night I have ever experienced.

Last night against Reading was billed to be a little different. The kids were out, but it […]

That was 12 days ago and […]

Cracking result, Walcott impresses and Giroud throws off the monkey

It was like a carbon copy of the goal attempt against Olympiakos last Wednesday. On that Champions League night the cross came in from the right and Giroud, showing his centre-forward instincts, flung himself towards the ball and with a deft touch volleyed towards the goal. On that occasion the volley was right down the […]

Deja Vu – Arsenal v Olympiacos preview

It was as far back as last season when we played Olympiacos in the Champions League. Oxlade-Chamberlain scored his first Champions league goal and he celebrated something like this;   Here we are once again, facing the experienced Greek Superleague Champions in the Champions League. Like the annual day trip to the seaside, Olympiacos are […]

The Santi Effect–Arsenal v Sunderland review

Welcome board ladies and gentlemen. It is great to be back after a brief summer hiatus. Those that know me well know that I have been champing at the bit to get back, but I wanted to talk about football not transfers.   I have no real desire to discuss our departures. Regardless of the […]
