There was a moment in what was probably his best ever performance for us that summed up Santi Cazorla for me. It wasn’t him twisting and turning away from Man City’s midfielders who, at that point, were trying their best to stop him by fair means or foul, but something a bit more prosaic. He … ...

Arsenal are busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger recently and there are two matches to consider this week, neither of which are very high quality. The first is agin Swansea Town, and eftsoons Red Star of Belgrade. ‘Doing it the Hard Way’ is surely in contention for our new motto when the next...

MATCH REPORT – PLAYER RATINGS – BY THE NUMBERS – VIDEO “Return of the Eddie” – that was supposed to be the title of this morning’s blog. I had it all planned out in my head. Nketiah was going to come off the bench to score a late winner and I was going to spend 10 minutes of the morning...

In this week’s show I chat with the brilliant David Squires about his cartooning, Jose Mourinho’s in or out bollocks, difficult drawings, and his new book The Illustrated History of Football – Hall of Fame, which is tremendous fun. We met in Sydney this afternoon, sat down in a quiet place which...

It’s Europa League action tonight as we face Red Star Belgrade at home. The last round against them produced a rather unmemorable game, but in the end we won with a superb Olivier Giroud goal that stands up to some replaying. It’s hard to see Arsene Wenger sending out a team too much different fr...

The definition of a ‘cult hero’ has always been a curiously nebulous one for football fans. It’s difficult to define what makes a cult figure, but generally we find consensus on the identity of our folk heroes pretty easily. Broadly, they fall into two categories. Sometimes supporters turn player...

Hello again. I remain discombobulated by time but I know for certain that Arsenal’s Europa League game against Red Star Belgrade is actually tomorrow evening. Today is now the day I thought it was yesterday, the coffee is still good, and there we go. Immediate focus remains on that game, but it’s...

Good morning to you up there from down here where it’s just approaching midday. I’ve been out for a run through the Botanic Gardens, and that hurt. I had a back injury playing 5-a-side a couple of months back so I haven’t been able to do any exercise apart from walking, but it was nice … The po...

Arsenal’s fab front four finally got us an away win at Everton last week before a slightly more tamed performance against Swansea City brought another three points on Saturday. For the first time, Arsene Wenger started his three most expensive signings – Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sa...

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week’s show, recorded between Melbourne and London, we discuss the 2-1 over Swansea, the impact of Sead Kolasinac and his mighty thighs, as well as looking back on the Eddie Nketiah inspired wi...

An interesting quote from Granit Xhaka to start us off today. After the 2-1 win over Swansea which saw us respond to going a goal down, the Swiss international said: It’s the third time in a week that the team have come from behind to win, that says a lot about this team. It really … The post O...

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video The thing about watching football that kicks off at 1am is that when 1am comes around you’ve probably had a few beers, and so the next day it’s a bit more difficult to remember the game in the kind of detail you normally do. … The post Arse...
