Leicester preview :: Gabriel suspended :: Mourinho obsessed

A tough Premier League test today against an exciting looking Leicester side who have yet to lose a game so far this season. After they sacked Nigel Pearson, the appointment of Claudio Ranieri was met with giggles from some quarters – as if he was some kind of joke figure

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Back in the 40s, we decided here at Gentleman Towers to undertake some minor home improvements. When I say ‘we’ I mean Mrs. Gent decided to undertake some improvements; my only involvement was to sign the cheque. And when I say ‘minor’, I mean we built a new wing. The

Morning all, welcome to another Friday. I did my back in playing football the other night and I’m walking around like something out of the Walking Shuffling Dead, that show about zombies who have hurt their backs playing football. It’s pretty niche, but I think you’d like it. Anyway, after

Spurs Away

I began attending live football in 1992, at the outset of football’s gradual chrysalis into gentrification.

Sp*rs 1-2 Arsenal: Someone call a Flambulance!

Match report – Player ratings – Video One of the worst things about football these days is Know-it-all-ism. That regardless of what occurs, there’s always some bloke who’ll say ‘I knew that would happen’, or ‘I told you that team couldn’t get a result’, or ‘I’ve always said that player

Sp*rs preview: Win required + Gabriel gets off

Normally the Capital One Cup is one in which Arsene Wenger likes to blood some youngsters. Had we drawn different opposition, and had we not just lost twice in a week, I suspect we’d have seen a different team to the one he’ll put out later on. Although, to be

FA charges for clubs ridiculous as Dean escapes censure

The scatter-gun approach from the FA when it comes to matters of discipline is one they use quite often – particularly when they want to deflect from the poor performance of their own officials. They’ll dish out a load of charges to obscure the fact that competent handling of situations

Morning all, welcome to a brand new week. The Diego Costa stuff will rumble on, with Arsene Wenger backing suggestions that the Chelsea striker should face retrospective punishment for his antics on Saturday. Asked if he felt the FA should view video and dole out a ban after the fact,

Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal: Costa’s cheating enabled by feeble Dean

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video Diego Costa is a cheat. An angry, spiteful, snide, gruesome man who plays like he has a wasp up his arse and the only way to ease the discomfort is to cause pain to others. As early as the
