The Season Defining game – Arsenal vs Chelsea.

You know … at different stages during the course of this season a fixture was labelled “the most important game of the season”, but that came and went as there was always the next one. Tonight though, for Arsenal: THIS IS IT. Some may even say the most important game of the Emirates era. Good […]

Arsenal’s Transfer Strategy-With Wings

Our man Shard has been thinking and writing     Since Sven Mislintat mysteriously decided to walk away, Arsenal have had no one in charge of strategically overseeing the recruitment at the club. This means not just identifying talent, but building a squad keeping in mind the club philosophy, administrative issues of age, homegrown status, […]

Burnley, The End Of The Beginning.

Here we are, the final game of the Premier League 2018/19 season has arrived, and with it the sad realization that we are nearing it’s inevitable end (in Baku) and then a football-less summer with a perpetual supply of transfer gossip beckons. But before all that excitement… Good day one and all. Arsenal is at […]

Happy Days Are Here Again

    That was fun, what a great result, performance and effort. Players that only yesterday were deadwood, left by Wenger, put on a show of great attacking skill, commitment and heart. Odd that?

With focus now shifting to the lesser continental competition I think there may be added pressure on both London sides to make it an all English affair in Baku. Good day one and all. Arsenal is in Spain […]

Life, Love and Arsenal

Future Positives

  Rich has had a go at some positivity. Well done lad.   So, Positively Arsenal. Positively, positively…Arsenal. Hmmm. It hasn’t been a great few weeks. In fact they have been stinkers, though interspersed with better news from the European front. For many here, it hasn’t been a good let alone great season, or rather […]

Oh Blimey,What Was That?

  Seriously, that was dross The end.

Aaron Ramsey, The Last Legend

  Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for Arsenal after suffering a muscular injury during their Europa League quarter-final against Napoli. The midfielder pulled up feeling the back of his thigh in the 33rd minute and was replaced by Henrikh Mkhitaryan. What a sad way for it to come to an end. After 11 years […]
