Diving Welbeck, Bizarre John Cross, Good Win, Player Ratings And The Draw For The Quarter-Finals.

Arsenal 3-1 AC Milan (Agg 5-1) Afternoon, folks. What could have been an uncomfortable and upsetting night, proved to be a whole lot of fun in the end. So, let’s get straight into a review and some delicious player ratings: First half: Aside from a glorious opportunity Milan spurned within…

Arsenal’s Title Challenge Ends With A Whimper. That Goal Was Definitely A Foul, Mind You…

Morning, boys ‘n’ girls. How are you feeling today? Dejected? Forlorn? Thoroughly p*ssed off with just about everything to such an extent you drop-kicked a badger last night and set fire to your 1989 Anfield “I was in the away end” commemorative underpants? Yeah… Me too. I think the worst…

Uber-Podolski, The Maligning Of Giroud And 3 Scrumptious Points.

Morning, Earthlings. Last night’s match was a very welcome sight; 3 goals, 3 delicious points and, barring a spell of around 4 minutes when West Ham had the lead, mercifully short of reason for concern or palpitations. As if often the case with Arsenal; what should be relatively straight forward…

More Giroud fury, Theo’s nugget, Santi’s magic and an excellent Boxing Day comeback.

Morning greetings, you luminous and cromulent perusers. I think my stomach in annoyed with me. Were I to liken it to a fictional character right now, I’d say it’s similar to the unhinged unpredictability of Gary Oldman’s villain in Leon: The Professional – I especially imagine shouts of “EVERYONE!!” when…

Stoke, Ramsey, Ozil, spanners and banners.

Morning folks. I can barely keep my eyes open writing this. In recent weeks, I’ve been attempting my hand – oddly succesfully – at DIY around the house in light of it going on the market, working my job, podcasting and trying to prevent Big Ted from stockpiling potentially lethal…

Don’t worry! Mathieu Flamini will save us!

Morning folks. Okay. That was sh*te. The English language is complex, mellifluous and wonderfully varied, but sometimes a little bit of profanity sums things up better than any carefully chosen conglomeration of words. Sh*te… Let’s get one thing out of the way first; the referee was beyond awful. He was…

Over in 21 minutes, down and out in February.

Evening folks. The main memory I’ll take from last night’s game is how much it reminded me of the Champions League semi-final we played against United. For the opening few minutes of play, and for the minutes leading up to kick-off, The Emirates was a sight to behold – loud,…

Gervinho, Ramsey, Podolski, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, and a slightly sloppy 3-1 win.

Morning, folks. We hoped for a delicious, invigorating win . We got one. Kind of… The history records will show what appears a simple victory. Those of us that watched the game will know it wasn’t quite as cut-and-shut as the scoreline suggests. The first half was slow, and rife…
