The sun was out, the stadium was roaring, the stage was set, THE ARSENAL WERE BACK! For the first 60 minutes anyway, and then everything seemed to go a bit dead – atmosphere included. Nevertheless, I found it pleasing that despite losing our [former] best player and [former] captain, we looked an unchanged, comfortable and […]

Is there a silver season ahead for Man City? (Originally on Back Page Football)

The short answer: yes. A slightly longer answer: yes, but complacency, the terrible yet terrific two (Tevez and Balotelli) and the inconsistency of Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko are going to be defining factors in the forthcoming season. After a disappointing start to their pre-season which saw City lose 1-0 to Al-Hilal and draw 0-0 […]

All statistics used are from the excellent Who Scored. This season the French league has thrown up all sorts of surprises, the biggest surprise being Montpellier Hérault storming their way to their first top division title in the club’s history. However, this season has also seen some excellent displays from players who may not be […]

Apart from this sentence, this is a non-Van Persie related post, weird isn’t it? We’ve been linked with a few players in the past week, Hugo Lloris of Lyon (£15M), Stevan Jovetic (£25M) amongst a host of others, including Wigan’s Victor Moses (£10M). But transfers aren’t the main topic of this post. I have some […]

YIPEE!!!!1!1111!!!!!!2!!!11!!! Bang on schedule, eh? It’s been a hectic few days for the club, but this is just another Arsenal-esque embargo and to be quite honest I expected it, just not in the fashion we are currently experiencing. This week we’ve had Walcott linked with a move away from the Emirates (unlikely), we’ve also had the […]

After the mushy mushy stuff I wrote about interacting with the Arsenal community and publishing that poll, I decided to take a look (briefly) at how the players use social media, and not just the fans. I’m also getting sick and tired at some of the attitudes on display from our young players, mainly Frimpong […]

Scapegoats: defending Ramsey and Theo, again. (Originally) on YAMA)

It’s become clear that fans tend to pick and choose who to blame for our hiccups throughout the season, sometimes it’s just out of ignorance, sometimes it’s out of frustration. In other instances, the ones laying the blame have an incredibly valid point. This season – since Arshavin left – there have been two main […]
