City fans refusal to pay opens an important debate

Ahead of the Man City game on Sunday, an interesting story that City returned over 800 tickets to Arsenal, and there’s strong evidence that this is because their fans have deliberately chosen to boycott the game due to the price of the ticket, which comes in at £62. It raises

What in the world

Morning to you. It feels a bit quiet today but I guess it’s calm before the storm territory as once we get into the swing of things and the games start flowing this month there’s going to be little time for anything. And what a month it is: Sunday 13th

Tactics Column: Arsenal out-Arsenal Swansea but settle for draw

The last time Swansea faced Arsenal, they comprehensively out-played The Gunners in a way which damaged the credibility of the “Arsenal way.” The Welsh side prevailed 2-0 at the Emirates and displayed football which was once synonymous with the red and white. The passing was slick, they moved the ball

Swansea 2-2 Arsenal: Dyer another day

Swansea preview :: AW’s transfer indecision worrying

FA Cup time and I’ll happily admit this is a competition I have always enjoyed. My first Arsenal memory is winning it in 1979 and we’ve been lucky enough to win it a number of times since. Who could ever forget Freddie leaving John Terry on his youthful, but still

Why having to read between Arsene’s lines is increasingly frustrating + Arsecast 261

Morning all, welcome to Friday. So, Arsene has been talking about transfers. And as time goes by, listening to Arsene talk about transfers is steadily becoming one of the most infuriating things about life as an Arsenal fan. One day we’re going to be active, the next we’ll wait and

Slow, slow, [something something] slow

From feast to famine as the old adage has it. After a delightfully excessive and fattening 7-3 win over Newcastle, Arsenal promptly swore off the sins of the festive season with an impoverished performance at St. Mary’s. The Southampton display was rather like watching Tomas Brolin trying to squeeze into

Transfer window: more outs than ins right now

So the transfer window is open and everyone is anxiously awaiting the first new arrival. This is the point where I say I’m not going to hold my breath because, well, if experience has taught us anything it’s that trying to hold your breath for 28 days is a task
