I have SAD: Seasonal Arsenal Dismay

Well, it’s safe to say yesterday was an interesting day once Arsene Wenger had finished his pretty astonishing press conference (transcript here – video here). The Arsenal manager was in chippy form, and he sent people’s blood pressure through the roof with some of his comments. Watching it at the

Bring me the head of Diego Simeone (and the rest of him too please)

Morning all. I watched Champions League last night. Atletico Madrid against Bayern Munich, and I had envy. I’ll be honest and admit I think Diego Simeone is a bit unpleasant in some ways. His upcoming three game ban for arch-gamesmanship when he probably instructed a ballboy to throw a ball

Power to the people

Morning. The only place to start this morning is a protest planned for this weekend before, during and after the Norwich game. It’s the brainchild of The Gooner, REDaction and the Black Scarf Movement, with approval from the Arsenal Supporters Trust. You can read about it here. They’re asking fans

Game of Groans as Ozil’s creativity is wasted

Well, I didn’t bother turning on Monday night football last night because I figured a Sp*rs side that were actually playing well against West Brom side that, on Thursday night against us looked like they couldn’t care less, would only end one way. I was not inclined to watch such

West Brom still important, just not as much as it should have been

Good morning. We can get away from all this incessant football chat with … well … actual football. It’s unusual to play a Premier League game on a Thursday night. Clearly when Sky were dicking around with the schedule they figured this might be a game of greater importance than
