Arseblog - Thu May 17 5:30 PM
During Arsene Wenger’s three week farewell tour, it became a little dispiriting to see how few people understood that it’s perfectly logical to want a manager to leave, but to be grateful for their overall achievements. Basic emotional intelligence dictates that it’s perfectly possible, nay routi...

Yesterday’s post outlining what I felt were legitimate concerns over the rumoured appointment of Mikel Arteta as manager sparked some excellent discussion. Of course, as this is the Internet, there were extreme views one way or the other, but for most it’s a nuanced situation. Potentially it coul...

Sometimes people ask me, what time do you get up to write the blog? I used to aim for around 6.30am, more or less. Now I rise at Puppy O’Clock. That time when the puppy decides it’s time for someone to get up, so I let her out into the garden to perform her morning …

As has now become tradition, when the season ends I do a squad assessment type post giving the players a rating based on their performances etc. I’m using the grading system we have in school where A is the best, obviously, D is a passing grade, and anything below that a fail. I’m trying to …

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. Arsene Wenger took charge of his final game as Arsenal manager yesterday, a 1-0 win over Huddersfield which is discussed briefly, but the main chat is about the occasion, and the fact that the manager...

Match report – Player ratings – Video In some ways the result was the least important part of the day, but Arsene Wenger will, I’m sure, be glad that his final game for the club ended with victory. For him, the most important game has always been the next one and now, for the first …

Seaman, Dixon, Bould, Adams, Keown, Winterburn, Vieira, Platt, Merson, Hartson, Wright Subs: Lukic, Linighan, Morrow, Shaw, Parlour Arsene Wenger’s team for his first game in charge in October 1996. Fast forward (slow forward?) to now, and today’s line-up will also become a pub quiz question. I’m...

Morning all. I’m sitting here with a very energetic and very mischievous puppy at my feet so writing is something of a challenge. Having already dug up half the garden, she is now in the process of chewing anything, and I mean anything, that she feels like chewing. Tables, cables, a basket, my fo...

“I have some work to do in France on Monday and Tuesday and after I will come back and clear my office. And that will be it. After, I don’t know.” – Arsene Wenger 10.05.2018. In all the sentiment of the manager’s departure, that line from yesterday’s press conference really hit me yesterday. We’v...
Arseblog - Fri May 11 6:23 AM
Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast – the Arsenal podcast. This is a bit of a strange one: the last ever Arsecast with Arsene Wenger as manager. He’s been a constant throughout the lifetime of this show, so I chat with James from Gunnerblog about that, this long goodbye we’ve had with him,...
