Arsenal Well Set Halfway Into The Transfer Window

Some background Apparently sitting around at home watching a lot of football has convinced many Arsenal fans they are experts at management, coaching, scouting, contract negotiations, commercial deals and, last but by no means least, the proper color of the team kit. As some of my British friends have commented, it is similar to the […]

Alexis Sanchez: A Classic Case of Fake News

Whither Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal Football Club? The way the media has spun this story since last May, not surprisingly, those who are most prone to their deceptions and fakeries, must be feeling like John Denver in “Leaving on a jet plane”: “All my bags are packed I’m ready to go I’m standin’ here outside […]

The Amazing Mr. Wenger

Wenger 2 – WOBs 0 Despite their total and ignominious defeat earlier this week, the WOBs remain unrepentant and as bitter as ever.  It has been my observation these past many years that most of these anti-Wenger zealots, (bloggers, podcasters, tweeters and self-appointed tv personalities) are so invested in their anti-Wenger narrative they have become […]
