Reading 5-7 Arsenal: Schizophrenic Arsenal get battered and still hand out a thrashing

Match Report – Player Ratings – Video So, last night I played football, a game which kicked off at 9.15pm (routine 2-0 win, in case you’re interested). That meant I could only watch the first half. And when I left the house at half-time, I wasn’t exactly thrilled at what

Reading preview: something to prove in different ways

I admit that I like the Rumbelows Milk Littlewoods Coca-Cola Carling Capital One Cup. Not because it’s the most prestigious tournament, not because it’s got the best players, but because it provides football we can watch without the stomach-churning pressure of every other game we play these days. No doubt

Tactics column: Why Aaron Ramsey deserves more credit

It’s possible to look at Arsenal’s team sheet as essentially a list of heroes and villains in the play that’s about to unfold. There’s Jack Wilshere, returning to the fold after a long absence like a war hero; Bacary Sagna, Arsenal’s Mr. Dependable and Mikel Arteta, the man who everyone

AW urges caution over Jack, thoughts on his return

Morning all, it’s a bank holiday here so really I should be in bed having a lie-in but such is the dedication to the cause – added to the fact I forgot to turn off my alarm – I’m up and about as if it were some kind of normal

Arsenal 1-0 QPR: late, not great, but enough

Match Report – By the numbers – Player Ratings – Video Not even in the most parallel of parallel universes would yesterday’s match have gone down as a classic. Arsenal were better than in their previous two games but still struggled, and showed signs of the difficulties they’d faced against

QPR preview: Wilshere to start?

Morning all, it’s cold. This is not good. But we have bigger fish to fry today and they come in blue and white hoops and they’re managed by a man who looks like a Punch and Judy doll who has been injected with a serum made from the jism of

“He’s behind you!” + Arsecast 252

Morning all, I hate days like today. Absolutely nothing whatsoever to talk about after what must have been one of the quietest days anyone can ever remember yesterday. But hey-ho, that’s the way it goes. We’ll just struggle on. Arsene Wenger’s press conference took place yesterday for some reason, no

My old mum used to say “If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” (That’s totally untrue. When I was 14 we were at a North London derby together and she nudged me, nodded towards Teddy Sheringham and said, “It’s ok. You can call him

Arsenal 0-2 Schalke: a bad week gets worse

Match Report – Video – Player ratings Where to begin? Perhaps in the same way that Arsenal continued where they left against Norwich, this could be a continuation of that blog. Talk after that game, and before this, was of reaction, improvement and bouncing back, but it was more of
