Winning ugly is a thing of beauty

FA Premiership 3rd March Liverpool 1-2 Arsenal Morning, friends, countrymen, foreign acquaintances and dubious ruffians oh-so-keen to post curiously worded and vitriolic comments – Spurs fans… *rolls eyes*. Before kick off yesterday, I would have happily accepted a point. Anfield is always a tricky ground from which to escape with…

Thomas, Robin, Abou, Aaron and Arsenal Vs Liverpool.

Morning, boys and girls. I’ve always secretly had a begrudging respect for Liverpool’s horde of past glories. During the 80s, my classmates would bombard me with gleeful yelps of celebration the moment their beloved Reds secured a major honour. As the sole Gooner representative during my formative schooling, I took…

Podolski, Hamsik, A trip to Klanfield and Gentleman’s Golf

Good morning, puddings. It’s a deathly quiet day in Arsenal world. Klanfield awaits us on Saturday at the thoroughly ridiculous kick-off time of 12:45, so news of player injuries and absentees should begin today with conformation on the morning of the game. As things stand, there’s very little to report,…

Unscathed Dutchmen, Abhorrent national teams and Cameron Diaz’s use of the ‘C’ word.

Podolski agrees to join Arsenal and international nightmares.

Wojciech, Robin, Mikel, Tomas, Andrey and Arsenal make big profit.

Greetings, salutations and awkward just-where-do-I-put-my-hands? hugs to each one of you. Today is a news bonanza, and it’s been a pleasure to read through uplifting and happy stories instead of the interminable anti-Arsenal dross the papers serve up with such jolly disregard when things go awry – although, some have…

Big Ted’s player of the month: February

I’ve noticed that I’m the only Arsenal blog to have a mascot. As there’s quite obviously something wrong with me upstairs, Big Ted – the aforementioned mascot – will be awarding The Armchair Gooner’s player of the month. For February, it’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. His goals, assists and general ascent into…
