Chamberlain And Gibbs Set To Leave In January And Samir Nasri’s Hooker Escapades.

Morning, boys ‘n’ girls. As we hurtle unstoppably towards 2017, two things begin to come to the forefront of news and the media; the first is interminable lists of occurrences during 2016. These range from obligatory goal compilations to pretty much anything you can imagine. Headings like; The 10 most…

Ozil Out Of NLD, Arsenal Exit Champions League And The Players Rated.

Morning, folks. A brave defeat (over two legs). A triumphant exit. A magnificent failure. Those are some of the terms I’m sure people will use to describe Arsenal’s performance and, alas, departure from the Champions League. There can be absolutely no shame attached to falling out of the competition (again)…

Fabianski, Ozil, Sanogo and The Ox Shine as Arsenal Progress.

Morning, folks. When I saw the team sheet for yesterday’s fixture, I wasn’t entirely sure how I felt about it. I knew the rotation was coming, with Bayern coming to town on Wednesday a few changes was inevitable. Call me a soppy old romantic, if you will, but the FA…

Arsenal sent to Coventry, not Kalou again and Return of The Ox

Morning, Earthlings. It’s a full week until we have the joys of meaningful football again. Between now and next Monday’s fixture at Villa Park, it’s safe to say the news will be in short supply. Unless  of course, something unplanned and jaw-dropping occurs. For all we know, Arsene could announce…

Damn those pesky train drivers.…

Another player injured on international duty, The Ox, England and stuff.

Afternoon folks. That dreaded injury curse has once again struck. Such was my complete lack of interest, I only caught the occasional glimpse of England’s game last night – I watched Jet Li in ‘Unleashed’ instead – so I’ve had to rustle around various sites for a bit of information…

Penalties, despair, ineptitude, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberian, vitriol and more.

Morning, folks. Football can be a cruel mistress. Just as she builds up your hopes, as expectations grow and hope appears on the horizon; she kicks you square in the testicles. Those of us who love the beautiful game have all experienced the crushing low a defeat can bring –…

The Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain device, Rosicky, rivals for Giroud and England.

Morning, folks. Today, it’s England again. Will I be joining in with the pre-match anticipation? No. Will I find myself struggling for a vantage point amidst the jostling jocundity of my local pub? No. No, no and no. I’ll be stuck at work preparing a meal for some people who’ve…
