Frimpong, Rosicky, Park, Wenger, Bould and Henry. News, news and more news…

Good morning to you, my dearest faithful. There has been quite the bonanza of news in the past 24 hours. Ordinarily, I’d find myself scouring the interweb in search of something vaguely interesting and pertinent to waffle about. Today the stories haven’t stopped coming. The dreaded ‘Arsenal injury curse’ has…

Robin off to Barca (yawn)? and the Gervinho selection dilemma.

Morning, crazy cats. As I type (I’m writing this the night before) the Superbowl is playing in the background. Someone’s winning 9-0, there’s an obscene amount of razzmatazz and spectacle and I’ve utterly no fucking idea what’s going on. Instances such as this make me glad I follow proper football;…

“It’s only Blackburn. They’re useless and had a man sent off. It doesn’t hide the issues”

Good morning to you, the deliriously joyous. For quite a while now I’ve been a little morose and pessimistic about The Arsenal. Bad results, bad injuries and bad performances have steadily chipped away my ability to look at the future with hope. Like many of you, frustration and chagrin has…

Season after season passes with the same story; Arsenal create myriad chances, and they either squander them in the most frustratingly inept manner, or the opposition keeper becomes superhuman for 90 minutes. As…

Transfer D-Day; excitement, thrills, jubilation and Jack Wilshere.

Good day to you, fearless reader. I remember the first time I watched The Coen Brothers’ exceptional No Country For Old Men; when the credits rolled, I found myself thinking “Oh, is that it?”. Yesterday’s window was much the same, and taking into account the last-minute excitement of August, an…

Villa in town, bid turned down and reasons not to frown.

Morning, ladies and germs. The FA Cup is a great competition. Over the years, Mr. Wenger has, on occasion, viewed it as a lesser priority than either the Premiership or the Champions League, and our results have suffered accordingly. Financially, securing 4th spot in the league is important, but I…
