Don’t Worry, It’s Only Blackburn Rovers!

Greetings fellow Gooners! Just a quick one today due to: a) My being phenomenally late due to some other commitments that the world forgot to warn me about until I had 40 minutes to get there including getting ready and travelling for 30 minutes and; b) There isn’t a great deal to say that hasn’t been said a thousand and one times and thus that we don’t already know! Today we play Blackburn Rovers in yet another no-win situation. What could be a potential banana skin for us is exactly that,... 

Let’s Win One For Cesc

They say that the truth always comes out in the end and, even if we knew why Cesc was leaving, and not just because of his DNA, I don’t think that we needed to hear it quite so soon, indeed if at al But hear it we have… “I still have many feelings for Arsenal, but I fear that they won’t be able to push the other big clubs in England away. “If you look at the team this season I can’t see them finishing in front of teams like Manchester United or [Manchester] City, or Chelsea....

Firstly, an apology. Sorry for not being around this week but, in mitigation, a cleverly placed 20 litre water bottle, a wet, slippery tiled floor and my ribcage got into a bit of a fracas and, well, to put it bluntly, two of my ribs lost…BADLY! So, a week on the sofa put paid to my desperate desire to write something predicting a resounding thumping of Swansea today… So, broken ribs and a week of bed rest turned out to be a stroke of luck because now I can now sit here and write about how I... 

Lost

Ok, so the title isn’t too imaginative, but let’s be totally honest, we did lose, we looked lost on the pitch and we appear more and more lost as a club. I am sure that you all saw the “game”, but a quick recap should get us all on the same page. I think that we can literally do this by the numbers: 8-2 – That was the final score today at The Theatre of Dreams. Ok, I know how much fun it is to call it “The Theatre of Debts”, but I am actually going to pay a far superior, far more... 

Young Lion Bars or just Kiddie Kats?

Before we begin anything even reminiscent of a pre-match review, let’s get one thing out of the way… I am NOT a knee-jerk, sack the board, sack Arsene and burn the ground to, well, the ground kind of supporter of the mighty Arsenal. Yes, I am utterly passionate, to a fault I would suppose, but I would describe my relationship with Arsenal as a love/love relationship. I love them in the good times and I love them in the bad, regardless of how frustrating that may be. I live and die vicariously... 

Farewell Francesc Fabregas!

alt text

It might sound odd, but a lot of Arsenal fans are probably glad to see the back of Cesc Fabregas. The transfer story surrounding him seems to have rumbled on for all eternity and some might even argue it has hampered Arsenal’s progress. That’s not to say that Fabregas has not given his all for the club when playing – but with a dream move to Barcelona in the back of his mind, you’d have to say his heart cannot have been fully in it. There is no doubt that Fabregas is a genuinely world class...
