7am kickoff - Wed Sep 19 5:52 PM
Gang.. I’ve got great news. You know how sometimes in the Europa League you face an opponent that no one has ever heard of and you think it’s going to be an easy game but they turn out to be…
7am kickoff - Mon Sep 17 4:58 PM
Arsenal start their Europa League campaign on Thursday at home against FC Vorskla with just one small problem: Emery still hasn’t figured out his best lineup. I’m not saying I would pick a better one nor that this is a…
7am kickoff - Sat Sep 15 7:41 PM
The good Arsenal won just 4 away matches all of last season. It wasn’t going to be a difficult task to improve on that record but it is fantastic to see that we are already out of the gate with…

I’m busy researching the 2004/05 season and the rapid change from the Arsenal Invincibles in 2003/04 to Chelsea’s team that won the League with 95 points and just one loss. I guess I had forgotten most of that 04/05 season…

(Inspired by Mark Wahlberg’s rather idyllic life of eating and working out, here’s what I do every day) 2:07am wake up, realize it’s 2am, restart the Guardian Football Weekly podcast that I was listening to, fall asleep listening to Barry…

Good morning. I’m taking this week off from blogging. We have a 10 day break for the flag waivers to enjoy their nationalism football and then we get back to the real stuff on the 15th. So, until then, enjoy…

One… I let Pork Chop out to go pee. It’s part of my morning routine: get up, put on the kettle, ask the dog if she needs to go pee in a falsetto (because that’s how dogs understand English, everyone…

First, accept this post in lieu of a post in the morning. Arsenal play on Sunday this week and I did a match preview over on The Arsenal Review for today, this post is the stand-in for tomorrow, and the…
7am kickoff - Wed Aug 29 5:20 PM
I sat in a meeting yesterday in which we discussed building more inclusive spaces. It was a broad-ranging conversation, more of a first step into the topic rather than a deep dive into how our institution, specifically, could begin to…

On the final day of the 2007 season, Jose Mourinho strode up to the podium to accept his winners medal for the FA Cup. Instead of a moment of grace, Jose turned to Roman Abramovich and held up six fingers.…
7am kickoff - Sat Aug 25 6:34 PM
Arsenal picked up their first three points today with a somewhat sketchy win over West Ham and you know what? I’ll take it. A win after a first half in which Arsenal just 7 shots and conceded 8 including the…

(This interview is by Jean-Marc RAFFAELLI for Corse Matin, the Corsican newspaper. It has been translated by Google translate and edited by me, Tim. It is reproduced here with permission of the author.) After announcing, in the spring, his departure from Arsenal…
7am kickoff - Wed Aug 22 8:33 PM
On Monday I was looking at the stats section of the Premier League’s web site and posting some stuff on twitter when one of our regular readers suggested that I look at the “big chances missed” stat. So, I did…
7am kickoff - Mon Aug 20 4:27 PM
Arsenal lost to Chelsea 3-2 and I think we can firmly state that this one is on Unai Emery. It’s popular to blame the players and we did see some problems with the personnel in this match. Both of the…
7am kickoff - Fri Aug 17 7:31 AM
I love when people recall past matches, which have none of the same players, managers, and even in many cases the same supporters, as some kind of yardstick with which to measure an approaching match. “Arsenal haven’t won at Stamford…
7am kickoff - Wed Aug 15 7:52 PM
I broke with my intended schedule posting yesterday’s piece on how to (legally) watch all the Arsenal matches on your TV/Computer/Phone but don’t worry, I did follow that up with some work that I promised myself I would do from…
7am kickoff - Tue Aug 14 3:40 PM
I know that I’m not supposed to publish here today but I woke up this morning to yet another announcement of yet another streaming service putting Arsenal matches behind their paywall. This was for FA Cup matches, which will only…
7am kickoff - Mon Aug 13 3:56 PM
This weekend I got into an argument with someone on twitter over Jagielka’s red card in which he told me vehemently that I’ve never watched football. Over and over, he kept saying this, until I muted him. Earlier in the…
7am kickoff - Sun Aug 12 7:36 AM
This post is short. For the first time in our Arsenal lives, most of us have only known Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal, we are going to watch a competitive match coached by a manager who isn’t Arsene Wenger. And I know…
7am kickoff - Sat Aug 11 5:08 PM
Man City won the Premier League last year at record pace. They added just one player, Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, for the price of £61m. Mahrez had 12 goals and 10 assists last season, which alone is fantastic but in…
7am kickoff - Fri Aug 10 3:14 PM
The Premier League transfer window snapped shut two weeks earlier than the rest of Europe but not before some clubs could reach deep into the warchest to splash the cash on a swoop for a player they had targeted and…
7am kickoff - Tue Aug 7 5:13 PM
Arsenal have a new owner. He’s the same as the old owner but now he just owns the whole thing. E. Stan Kroenke borrowed a huge sum of money to buy the remaining shares from the Uzbeki guy who promised…
7am kickoff - Mon Aug 6 4:39 PM
Happy Monday to you all. I hope you had a good weekend. I spent the entire weekend at Stanford University for a conference. Stanford is the largest university I have ever seen which isn’t real weird considering it’s the 6th…
7am kickoff - Sun Aug 5 9:16 PM
Sorry that I haven’t posted for a few days but I’ve been away at a work conference and very busy. I didn’t get to watch the match yesterday and so, I have no comment other than “we won, yay!” I…
7am kickoff - Thu Aug 2 3:16 PM
I used to play golf. I know the stereotypes about golf and you can shelve them: here in Washington we have nice municipal courses where you can have an evening summer round for a reasonable price. Golf was two important…
7am kickoff - Mon Jul 30 4:42 PM
Quick post before I jet off to work. This week is going to be hectic. I have a conference in California this weekend and I fly out Thursday night. I don’t know how much Arsenal writing I’ll be able to…
7am kickoff - Sun Jul 29 9:45 PM
First off, I need to say this.. Nketia. That’s his name not “Neketia”. Of all the things I said yesterday I think that was the most offensive. I apologize for misspelling his name. Second off*, I apologize to all of you…
7am kickoff - Sat Jul 28 11:41 PM
Good day to you all. I got up late this morning and missed the first 80 minutes of the match. Kickoff was 0445am here which is normally not too early but I slept in. If I was being fair to…
7am kickoff - Thu Jul 26 4:57 PM
Unai Emery’s pre-season-seasoning of the Arsenal continued this morning as Arsenal drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid in Singapore thanks to a fine goal by young Gunner Emile Smith Rowe. Pull-ups and weight training have been featured on the official Arsenal…

And the top spender so far this season is… Liverpool. Using data from Transfermarkt.co.uk, Liverpool have spent an estimated £150m net this season buying Alisson, Keita, Fabinho, and Shaqiri. There are some questions about Alisson’s hands, Keita’s attitude, and whether…
