The Sanchez Catastophe: Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Ozil

Surely no smiling matter, Alexis? The false dawn of the West Ham result has proven to be a particularly bitter pill to swallow. That game was a convincingly dominant, effective and exciting performance and one we all believed would surely herald the start of our traditional end of season run-in that would see us stake […]

A Death At The Palace.

I was charged with doing the post match review as unfortunately ,for us all, our forever chirpy Andy Nic. is hibernating in the Hebrides. I was minded to give it a swerve, hide under a rock and hope no one noticed. As my old Mum says “if you have nothing good to say-say nothing”. Had […]

Arsenal Versus Palace: Pass The Soap Please Jeeves

A London derby, but perhaps not the most spicy of them, West Ham has nonetheless provided […]

By ‘we’ I mean the club, the players, fans, and our manager. I’d say we came through that test well. Admittedly not with the three […]

Arsenal Versus City: The Needle And The Damage Done

Feel like a bear this morning. Like a big fat hairy bear waking up from a pleasant, dreamless few months at the back of a cosy cave. Hope your break from all things football was equally refreshing and that you found plenty of diverting, and above all interesting ways to spend the languid, lazy, stress […]
