Tactics Column: Mustafi displays dynamism and grit early in his Arsenal career

It was the first real test of Shkrodan Mustafi’s character, but instead of wallowing in despair at the rough treatment he being was given by Burnley’s big centre-forward, Sam Vokes, he saw the funny side. Penalised for holding onto the shirt of Vokes, he protested that it was actually he

Arsene Wenger Is Like My Dad

Arsene Wenger is like my dad. He’s not like my actual dad. My actual father died when I was a baby and I grew up with my mum and four older sisters. I was 12 years old when Arsene Wenger took the reins at Arsenal and it’s no exaggeration to

Interlull speeds into the distance + Carl Jenkinson’s chance

So that’s it. The internationals are done and dusted. Hurrah. Except there are more next month. Booo. But for now they’re over. Hurrah. There were people expressing concern that Mesut Ozil came off at half-time during Germany’s 2-0 win over Northern Ireland, but the Arsenal man ‘took to Twitter’ to

Interlull: Stuff about Koscielny, Mahrez and left-backs

The other day I wrote about the disappearance of Adam’s Apples from men. It’s probably to do with all the oestrogen in the chemtrails that they put in the water to make us all compliant, but a man who did have a striking one back in the day was Gareth

Ahh, the good old days

It’s dark these mornings. Winter is coming. Although it has been unseasonably mild, maybe I should just appreciate that. It’s Monday, hope you had a nice weekend. Maybe you watched some international football. I didn’t. Nacho Monreal played for Spain. Alex Iwobi scored his first goal for Nigeria. Theo Walcott

It’s not that easy, Lionel

When Lionel Richie said he was ‘Easy like Sunday morning’, what exactly did he mean? I’m guessing he means it’s a day of rest, so he didn’t have to get up and go to work with the rest of the Commodores down at the old recording studio. There were no

Spanish Interlull guff, Wenger on England, and a big question

Morning. A very quick Saturday Interlull round-up for you. There’s as much going on as you would expect from an Arsenal point of view. Which is to say, not very much. There was a little bit of a scare yesterday when it was reported that Hector Bellerin had picked up

‘Twas back to the heady days of the Crabby Master, Mr. Denilson, and the Arsenal of a Death by a Thousand Sideways Passes this Sunday last. We toiled and toiled agin a steadfast Claret side who defended astutely and frustratingly, until at the last, a tightly choreographed training ground routine

A Reflektor on Hector

Morning to you, happy Friday and all that. The Interlull is in full effect now. I’ve spent most of my week blocking Man City websites and blogs on NewsNow because of incessant stories about Hector Bellerin and how much Pep Guardiola loves him. Apparently he loves him as much as

The Sea Wants To Take Me

Football moves along at light speed. The succession of fixtures and storylines are so dizzying that it is difficult to release oneself from the echo chamber and take stock. Football is akin to soap opera in this sense. As a result, many of us can be hasty with our assessments
