Burnley preview: Stick or twist?

Another little test of our mettle today as we face Burnley in the Premier League. We’ve beaten the big side last weekend; avoid the midweek Champions League banana skin in a very solid way; and now we have an away trip after a European game, something which can often be

Arsene Wenger 20

Given that today marks the 20th anniversary of Arsene Wenger taking the Arsenal job, there’s really only one thing I can write about: how evil dolphins are. I kid, of course. Back in the day, when Bruce Rioch and Arsenal had parted ways, there were names put up for the

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

There is an expression, attributed to someone I cannot be bothered to identify, which asserts that things are never as good or as bad as you think they are. It is worth remembering this if you think things are really bad (Mr. S. Allardyce, for example) or really bally ripsnortingly

FC Basel preview : Ozil contract : Walcott : Allardyce etc

Good morning. I am back from New York in one piece. Granted, it’s a bourbon soaked, quite tired-indeed piece, but one piece all the same. Just gotta say thanks again to Kurtis and all the Arsenal NYC crew for making it happen; Brian and his brilliant staff at the Barleycorn

Tactics Column: Chelsea undone by Arsenal’s inside game

It is fitting that for the game that celebrated his 20th anniversary at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger would rediscover his religion. Because, in defeating Chelsea with style, pace and movement – “the kind of football we want to play”, Wenger said after the 3-0 win – he has stumbled on the
