Wilshere talks + storms in empty vessels

Morning all, it’s one of those in-between days, not quite close enough to the Fulham game to focus on that but pretty much everything that’s needed to be said about Schalke has already been said. Still, a few bits and bobs going on, starting with Jack Wilshere. He’ll miss the

Schalke 2-2 Arsenal: a frustrating but important point

Match Report – Player Ratings – By the numbers – Video Before the game I was chatting with Andrew Allen and predicted a 2-2 draw with Giroud scoring twice. Andrew said he’d happily take that. Which isn’t to highlight my awesome psychic powers, I like to keep them under wraps

Schalke preview: Wenger looks for offensive improvement

In one way it is a good thing that the games come quickly at this part of the season. Imagine taking that post-United feeling into a regular one week gap, or even an Interlull? No thanks. So, while there’s time to look at what happened, analyse it and try and

Tactics Column: Arsenal’s illusionary domination

It was Didier Deschamps, in a conversation with Jean-Claude Suaudeau, who said that in today’s game, there are “two zones of truth…if you’ve got a great keeper and a great striker, you’re not that far from victory.” Naturally, Suaudeau, a former coach of Nantes and someone who is from the

United preview: all eyes on you know who but midfield the key

So the first of two very challenging away games is upon us, a trip to Old Trafford to play Manchester United. It’s always a big game, even if we haven’t been as much of a threat to them as we used to be, but there’s no doubt some of the

Some Theo thoughts + Arsecast 253

Morning all, mild *boilk* after going to celebrate the win in last night’s Irish Web Awards (Best Podcaster) with Mrs Blogs. Nothing coffee can’t fix though. Or morphine, but I don’t have any morphine. I wish it grew on trees. The world would be a much better place if everyone

Family

When I speak to Arsenal fans, nay, football fans in general, my lack of hostility towards the likes of Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor and Ashley Cole is seldom met with understanding. Tolerance sometimes, bafflement occasionally, an angry lecture often. But very rarely understanding or empathy. It’s not
