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

Somewhere Mikel Arteta is bald

Good morning, welcome to Friday, another working week done and dusted and with the Interlull it means there’s no working weekend … for me at least. I don’t know about the weather where you are, but here in Dublin it’s been unseasonably mild. Normally November gets pretty cold but we’ve

Let Me Hear Both Sides, Let Me Hear Both Sides

I was, and still am, a very big fan of Radiohead, but especially so when I was a teenager and they were in their pomp. Like many my age, my interest in them piqued with their 1995 release ‘The Bends’ and sustained through the pained paean to modern life that

Exclusive: Arsenal stars’ Interlull diaries

It’s an Interlull. That means Arsenal news is thin on the ground. Thankfully I have prepared for this by commissioning content from exactly the right people – the players who haven’t gone away with their countries on this occasion. We have exclusive diary extracts from a number of them to

The international break kicks in + thoughts on doping in football

Good morning from Cork. Having spoken at an event last night and met some very interesting people, it’s typical that this morning is one of those days when there’s very little going on in the world of Arsenal. I talked about doing the blog, and about how it’s been part

Trains, planes, and automOzils

Good morning, we’re into an Interlull and today I have to take a train to Cork. I love trains though. I don’t mean messy, busy, cramped tubes or undergrounds, but regular stare out the window as shit goes by kinda trains. I used to get the train from Barcelona to

Arsenal 1-1 Sp*rs: Gibbs and Ozil combine to save jaded Gunners

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video When Arsene Wenger took off an attacking player in Joel Campbell, and replaced him with a left-back who has hardly played this season, I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting us to get back into yesterday’s game. I just couldn’t

The starting XI must find the right response: Sp*rs preview

Today we look to bounce back from the midweek thumping by prevailing in a North London derby against a Sp*rs side that haven’t lost in the league since the opening day of the season. Perhaps that makes then overdue a defeat, but it’s a record which tells us we’re going

Wenger on Cech, Debuchy and what is beautiful in man

Morning all, a very quick Saturday round-up from a very damp Dublin. There was not much in the way of good news from the press conference in terms of injuries. Hector Bellerin’s absence was confirmed, Laurent Koscielny has an 80% chance of being fit to play tomorrow, while Mikel Arteta

We begin this week with two parallel stories. Back in 1945, in Rheims, France, Germany signed an unconditional surrender to take effect the following day, ending the Second World War. In November, 2015, in Munich, Germany, Woolwich Arsenal signed an unconditional surrender to take effect immediately, ending the Eighteenth Great
