Wenger warns his team as we face ‘fully committed’ West Brom

So, we’re back in the saddle today with an away trip to West Brom. It’s never easy playing a Tony Pulis side, as we know, but generally our record against him is very good. We’ve won 9 of the 14 games we’ve ever played against sides managed by him, and

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

I thought it would be opportune, in the wake of the murder spree of those sexually inadequate, festering, artless, pribbling, puny, warped, pox-marked, knotty-pated, boil-brained puttocks, who seek to strike at the heart of culture, to celebrate some of Arsenal’s finest players from across Le Manche. Here are my favourite

Wenger on Paris, doping and contracts + Arsecast 369

Morning all, it’s getting cold, boooo. Soon it will be time to throw on the industrial, rather than lightweight, hoodie first thing in the morning. Anyway, the manager held his pre-West Brom press conference yesterday rather than today, as is usually the custom when we play an away game on

Alexis Development

Back in September, I had planned to write a column about Alexis Sanchez and my overriding impression that Arsenal had mishandled his return to action this season. The Chilean understandably took some time to find his rhythm after his Copa América winning exploits with his country. I keep a notepad

Alexis set to sign new deal, but he needs help

This Thursday morning begins with reports that Alexis Sanchez has agreed a new deal with the club. Naturally it includes some kind of wage increase, but I don’t think the significance of such a move is that he gets a pay-rise. The news comes after reports earlier this week, or

England ❤ France

The scenes at Wembley yesterday evening, as England and France came together to remember the victims of the Paris attacks, were very moving. The French national anthem belted out, the colours blue, white, then red, followed by an impeccably observed minute’s silence. It was clear to see some of the

Ireland qualify + more from Wenger on doping in football

Well, Ireland have qualified for the European Championships next summer after beating Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-0 at Lansdowne Road last night. Two goals from Stoke’s Jon Walters put the team through to the finals in France next summer. The first a fairly generous penalty, the second a lovely volley at the back

A new week and some stuff about Wilshere and Ozil

Good morning, the start of another week at the end of which we have the return of Arsenal, something to look forward to. In the meantime there are internationals for some of our players to contend with. Tonight Ireland will try to qualify for the European Championships with a game

Good morning everyone. I hope this finds you safe and well. It still feels a little off this morning to talk about football, especially when there’s no real football news to talk about. Typically that might provide an Interlull flight of fancy, a post of surreal whimsy perhaps, but that

There is nothing to say this morning about football. Its place in this world was put into sharp focus by the events last night in Paris. People … people just like you and I … people like your brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, your friends and their friends, went

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

The visit of Tottenham Hotspurs this Sunday last was anticipated with a good deal of trepidation. Usually, Spurs seem fatigued from their long and arduous journey into London from Middlesex and can be relied upon to acquiesce under the slightest of pressure, but of late, under the guidance Pochettino, whose
