I am still laughing at Diego Costa

Goodly morning to you all from New York. I am 45 today and unfortunately I did not meet Cagney and Lacey. I suppose I could be disappointed at that but I choose to look on the bright side. Instead I want to say thank you again to all the people

Arsenal 3-0 Chelsea: That was good and I liked it

Match report – Player ratings – Video Yesterday, in real life and on Twitter, many people suggested that my presence in New York was a ‘lucky charm’ and that I, along with James from Gunnerblog, should stay here. This would apparently ensure we win the league. Folks, I’m prepared to

Chelsea preview: Arsenal can’t afford to fall over

Morning (or afternoon if you’re in the Europe time zone type thing). It’s Chelsea today in the Premier League and we are seriously overdue a win. You have to go back to that incredible game in 2011 for the last time we beat them. You know the one, Andre Santos

Start spreading the news, I’m boilking today

I got back to my hotel last night with the express intention of writing a blog that would be available first thing Europe time but tiredness, jetlag and Bulleit Rye overtook me. I did write something though, so it wasn’t a total bust. Thanks WordPress for saving this piece of

Nottingham Forest 0-4 Arsenal: Second string show quality and depth

Match report – Player ratings – Video Well that was quite fun. When a manager makes 11 changes from his previous team, takes none of that team with him at all, and packs his bench full of kids, you can never be quite sure how things are going to go.

Old faces add extra interest to Forest EFL Cup clash

It’s EFL Cup action tonight as we face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. There used to be a time this was a top flight fixture, but the last time the two sides met was in January 1999. It was a Premier League encounter, Martin Keown scored the only goal

An amusing weekend because other people are unhappy

Good morning. Hope you had a good weekend. Perhaps, like me, you attended a sporting event. I was at the All-Ireland Football Final between Dublin and Mayo at Croke Park. It ended up in a draw and there’ll be a replay in a couple of weeks and there were lots

Hull 1-4 Arsenal: Iwobi shines as Gunners almost click

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video Sometimes I wonder if we’re like Prince’s mother: never satisfied. We beat Hull 4-1 yesterday and in the immediate aftermath my thoughts were that we made life unnecessarily difficult for ourselves, and we should have won the game more

Hull preview, as Wenger extols the virtues of Xhaka

I have just had a piece of toast. I don’t know if this augurs well for the day ahead and Arsenal’s trip to Hull, but I just thought I’d mention it anyway. There’s no such thing as lucky toast, so I doubt it. I suspect what transpires today on the

A million magic crystals, painted pure and white

There are always lines. Lines between things. People will say, ‘There’s a thin line between madness and genius’, and perhaps that is true. Some people skirt both sides of the line. One minute he’s a madness line crosser because he’s invented a device that attempts to pre-butter your toast; the

PSG 1-1 Arsenal: Gunners let off the hook by profligate PSG

Match report – Player ratings – Video Even in the cold light of day it’s hard to look at last night’s game and not laugh. I think you have to laugh. Otherwise you’d kinda go a bit mad. A point away from home in the Champions League against the strongest
