Morning all. Our next five league games are a chance to get some points on the board, and that starts tonight as we face West Brom at the Emirates. It’s a busy week, because we play tonight, again on Thursday in Belarus in the Europa League, then we have a 12 noon kick-off on Sunday … The post...

Good morning, I hope you and your face are well. Me and my face are hungover like a fox, so please don’t expect anything too somethingy this morning. Please replace the word ‘somethingy’ with a more cromulent word like ‘coherent’ or ‘readable’. I didn’t pay too much attention to yesterday’s footb...

A week ago this piece would have looked very different. A week ago, Arsenal had just beaten Cologne after switching to a back four at half-time and were widely expected to meekly lose to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Another defeat like the one at Anfield a few weeks ago would have almost certainly...

The Cardinal of Candor— Ian Wright—talks frankly about racism on the pitch and the interloper owner who’s ruining Arsenal. By Patrick Barclay : Photographs by Jason Bell Originally published in Eight By Eight magazine — Football is a game of bullshit. It is a game of many things, of course, but b...

Good morning all, it’s a Saturday but a Saturday without Arsenal, so not really a good Saturday. A Saturday without Arsenal when Arsenal are going to be on Sunday is bearable, but an Arsenal-free Saturday when there’s no Arsenal until Monday is a different proposition altogether. It is Laurel wit...

“Happy Frigg Day, ” I shouted at Mrs. Gent first thing this morning. “Oh do shut up, Arsenal Gentleman, you silly old berk. It wasn’t funny in 1927 and it’s not funny now. Leave me alone.” Oh, how she loves me so. Every Friday for 90 odd years I have greeted her this way. For as … The post Arse...

Hey everyone, happy Friday to you. This is one of those weird weekends where we have to just sit and watch because we’re not playing until Monday. Even when that does come around, it’s one of the least interesting fixtures of the season as we face West Brom. It’s not to say I’m indifferent, of …...

In this week’s show I do my best to keep discussion of Doncaster and West Brom to an absolute minimum, so instead I talk to Rory Smith of the New York Times about a very interesting piece he wrote about Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan, and his recovery from an anterior cruciate ligament injury....

Over the last decade or so, Arsene Wenger has become very enamoured of the phrase ‘technical leader.’ These are players that set an example not through clenched fists and gritted teeth, but by embodying the team’s style of play. Wenger has used the phrase to describe players such as Mikel Arteta....

Match report – Player ratings – Video Sometimes the League Cup can be tremendous fun. Teams of fringe players and kids playing lower league opposition just give you something fresh and different. There have been some good nights at the Emirates down the years, but it would be safe to say last nig...

It’s Doncaster Rovers tonight in the Carabao Cup which was the EFL Cup which was the Carling Cup which was the Milk Cup which was the Ted’s Earthenware and Pottery Cup and so on. I’ve been to Doncaster. Twice, in fact. Once when the plane landed there, and once when getting the plane back from …...

By any reasonable standards Arsenal’s start to the Premier League season has been relatively tricky. Away games at bogey team Stoke and at Liverpool, as well as a game at Stamford Bridge against the Champions. The two home fixtures were ones we were fully expected to win, and we did, but it was w...
