Arsenal and the Watford Vicarage Garden Party

Good morning Positivistas far and near, Grey and quiet at 9.00 on Sunday morning in Norfolk. Another week and those leaves will be down. A formidably straightforward task this morning in reviewing an entirely straightforward away win at Vicarage Road. Like any sane Arsenal fan I travelled, in my mind’s eye admittedly, up the line […]

Arsenal Versus Watford: Careful Husbandry

You can tell it has been a painfully long time since last we had any football to distract us when we find ourselves, as I did last night, watching the ‘action’ from Ashton Gate in the largely forlorn hope that something resembling the beautiful game might inadvertently break out and thus bridge the gap between […]

Arsenal: 74 seconds of smooth silk and sharp steel

Good morning, I am almost embarrassed to write a review of yesterday’s game as it was one which every reader will have watched, re-watched, read what the media have to say and for those of a robust constitution have probed the deep recesses of social media, Twitter and blog wise. I can tell you little […]

Arsenal Versus Manchester United: League Of Legends

Cormac was discussing the match yesterday. He and my daughter’s boyfriend were very dismissive of the team. We may have enjoyed some early dominance they agreed, but somehow we always manage to flatter to deceive, to pull an ignominious defeat out of the hat when ostensibly playing well. I reclined into the unseasonal October sunshine, […]
