Wasted season for Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi

Big night for the Gunners at Goodison

Thanks to the FA Cup quarter finals the Arsenal players were able to have a weekend off and so should be fully refreshed after the exertions of the last minute smash and grab win over the Magpies. The same cannot be said for tonight’s opponents, Everton. They had to play an exhausting derby game at Anfield, where […]

A reminder for Tottenham fans

Most of the time I’m not one for animalistic rivalry. I prefer to put my bias aside and keep a rational head; to see football for what it is. But as derby day edges closer, I’m afraid instincts are kicking in. Firstly, congratulations to Tottenham. After a LOT of waiting, they finally have a very […]

Arrogant Arsenal players live in a bubble

Many of you will now be aware of the Twitter row between cocky celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan and outspoken fringe player Emmanuel Frimpong that took place last night in the wake of our 2-0 FA Cup exit to Sunderland. Let me make this clear very early: I detest Piers Morgan. I think he’s a […]

Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester City All Want Van Persie

Euro 2012 arch-rival Real Madrid wants Robin Van Persie. Look at my face: I am not happy right now. The prospect of Real Madrid acquiring Arsene Wenger and Robin van Persie would be a major coup for that club, to be sure, but I’m left to wonder whether or not Van Persie would view that […]

Seven good minutes enough for Arsenal

Three goals in seven second half minutes – that’s all it took for Arsenal to win a game in which they were otherwise unimpressive. While the comeback was miraculous and the result crucial, many problems still remain. As has been the case for the last month or so, Arsenal started at a pedestrian pace. While […]

The Arsenal fans want to win the FA Cup

Here we are on the verge of our 4th round FA Cup tie with Aston Villa, and yet I find myself still thinking about the substitution of Oxlade-Chamberlin in last weeks 2-1 loss to Manchester United. With the way Wenger was talking it makes me wonder if he is getting his apologies, or should I […]

Why Arsenal must learn to love Cup again, Arsene

Henry gives us another “I was there” moment

When it was first announced that Thierry Henry would be returning to the club, as an Arsenal fan, it was always going to be impossible not to get excited about the move.

From the outside looking in, everything seems to be fine in Gunner land. King Henry comes back to save the day with a late winner against Leeds in a 1-0 victory and Arsenal hosts Aston Villa in the next round of the FA Cup. However, after reading between the lines, I wasn’t too thrilled with […]
