Despite the disappointing week we’ve had we have another game to look forward to as we travel to Everton for the early kick off at 12:45 tomorrow afternoon, I know the lads have not had much rest and in an ideal world this game should be played on Sunday instaed as Everton players had a whole week to recover from their FA Cup triumph against Chelsea, whilst we played Barcelona mid week which without a doubt was a very demanding game physically. Still, there is no point complaining and moaning... 

Arsenal tried but Barca far too superior!

So we here it goes, we are officially out of two cup competitions within a week, we all knew too well it would be Mission Impossible to beat Barcelona at Camp Nou. We did give it our best shot and if our players were ruthless in front of goal it could have been a different story, however it wasn’t the case as it hasn’t been for few months now. We started brightly and in the first 15 minutes I thought we could really do some serious damage, but that didn’t last and we paid the ultimate...

Not too sure how to start this one, I know this is an Arsenal blog and I haven’t done the blogging thing for a long long time. I suppose life is too busy we all have too many duties during our days to keep personal stuff afloat and we are truly committed to our cause. Never mind the football this one is not about football anymore as far as I’m concerned this one is about my cousin who tragically lost his life once he stepped off the plane on 8th of August and came back to his so called...

Arsene Wenger was delighted to say: “We are extremely pleased to have signed Mesut Ozil. He is a great player, with proven quality at both club and international level. We have watched and admired him for some time as he has all the attributes I look for in an Arsenal player. “I have said throughout the summer that we have been working hard to...

We all saw the game last night including my disappointing comments on another blog, I think I have for once lost the plot but was I the only one? I don’t want to talk about the game or the previous one for that matter it was let’s honestly say total shambles! It pains me to say we are not good enough any more for the so called 4th spot trophy if you ever believed it was just that. Yesterday’s performance proved this to me as I have believed the team can lift themselves as they...

Having arrived at the desired location around 5:05pm before the game with my son I have already spotted Steve T with his kids in Arsenal gear making their way towards the Holiday Inn where Holic and the others have agreed to meet. I thought one thing, it was a real shame I couldn’t sit this one out with Arsenal fans but hey I never imagined what was about to happen and show us exactly why we really love this game and Arsenal for that matter and most of all why you should NEVER under no circumstances...
