van Persie returns, Mourinho’s Snide Blathering and Early Liverpool Bits.

Morning, folks. Yesterday there was an eruption. It was an explosion of news and most of it was of the silly variety. There were no fabulous moments of blinding clarity or life-affirming statements from ethereal creatures ordained by god to share their message of enlightenment. This is the world of…

Beating Liverpool is Important and No Thanks, van Persie.

Morning, folks. Consider today the calmness that occurs before all great storms. Arsenal’s fortunes will be put to the test in no uncertain terms, and tomorrow it all begins with a tough trip to Liverpool. What’s so wonderful about the upcoming fixtures, in my eyes at the very least, is…

No-go David Villa, no-go Huntelaar, Jack wants Theo to stay, and other news.

Morning folks! ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except… the four assholes coming in the rear in standard two-by-two cover formation” That’s always been my favourite Christmas quote. I’m sure I need not tell you which film it’s from. It has…

Santos, Vermaelen, Ramsey, van Persie, Wilshere, Cazorla, and real reason for concern.

Morning folks. Not the best of moods around the Arsenal community, is there? Understandably so. Defeat is something I find easier to take if I know Arsenal have given everything. It still hurts, it still upsets me, but there isn’t any shame in losing to a better team on the…

Arsenal vs United; a few pre-game thoughts.

Afternoon folks. Tomorrow’s post will contain as much teams news and predictions as I can get my grubby little paws on. Today’s is all about some of my early thoughts about the huge game on Saturday. 8-2. Still hurts, doesn’t it? It bloody well should, too. There have been many…

Saturday isn’t ‘van Persie day’ and Theo will sign his contract…

Afternoon folks. It’s been a remit of mine to ensure your daily dose of blathering is served at the same time every morning. However, there are occasions where I find it next to impossible. Apologies for the lateness of today’s post. I’ll move straight on to Arsenal matters, and the…

An interview with Robin van Persie, Wilshere, and getting shot in the face.

Morning folks. As is customary, I’m writing last night for publication today. I ache. My god, do I ache. Paintball is fun, make no mistake; but it is a tiring pursuit, and one that I found, much to my chagrin, involves getting shot in the face quite regularly. At one…

Cazorla, Sahin, Giroud, Podolski and that feeling of depleted optimism.

Afternoon, angels. Since I lasted posted I’ve had to look at a picture of Robin van Persie’s treacherous mug sat beside Alex Ferguson gurning with delight. I use the word ‘had’ as I’ve hardly had a choice, such has the image been emblazoned practically everywhere even the slightest bit sports…
