Interlull: Saturday round-up

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that this Interlull has coincided with the drop in temperature that reminds you that winter is coming. “Yer knur nothing Yaya Snurnurguuuu …” Still, maybe the cold isn’t a bad thing right now as we’ve gone a full 24 hours without news of anyone

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

As Lord Mangan of Leinster pointed out this very morn, every Arsenal player has been devoured by a wolf and the youth team are succumbing to rampaging leprosy, chronic jitters, ladies’ vapours, false leg syndrome, canker sores of the armpit, paper cuts on the old chap and indeed my own

More injuries, Per and behind the scenes jiggery-pokery

It’s my sad duty to report to you this morning that every Arsenal player has been devoured by a wolf. I mean, I haven’t read that anywhere but I’m just assuming that’s what happened. The youth team are too afraid to make the step up. Gedion Zelalem tried, the brave

Put it in the ground where the flowers grow

“2-0 down! 3-2 up! That’s how Arsenal won the cup, with a nick knack paddy whack give a dog a bone, Aaron Ramsey poked one home.” So sang a gentleman behind me at Leicester in August. Repeatedly. I joined him in his choral appreciation of Arsenal’s recent F.A. Cup win.

Ozil to miss three months as injury issue becomes farcical

It seems somewhat apt that it’s miserable and teeming down this morning, as Arsenal’s fitness parade was rained on once more yesterday. In the morning we got news that Mesut Ozil was heading to Munich to have an MRI. In the afternoon the German national association released a statement on

Empty vessels

It’s getting darker and colder these mornings which, in turn, is making it more difficult to get out of bed. ‘Just one more alarm snooze’ is what’s needed every 9 minutes – another little clump of warm sleep. We’re now well and truly into the Interlull and as you can

Arsecast Extra Episode 36 (live!) – 07.10.2014

Here’s this week’s Arsecast Extra with myself and James from @Gunnerblog. This week’s show is a very special edition, recorded live at Union Chapel on Upper Street last night (Oct 6th). James and I were joined by Amy Lawrence and Philippe Auclair to chat about the weekend’s game against Chelsea,

Live recording, Szcz and Jack …

I suppose this has to start with a bit of a *boilk* – some post-show school-night pints/bourbons definitely have an effect. Anyway, we had our Arsecast Extra live recording last night at Union Chapel and all seemed to go well. It’s hard to know exactly, but nobody threw things at

Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal: Gunners found wanting in a big game once more

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video Another game against a big team away from home, another defeat. Even if the game yesterday was much more even than the encounter last season, the result was predictably, demoralisingly familiar. Chelsea produced two moments which resulted in the

Chelsea preview: first, do not lose

It’s understandable that there’s trepidation going into this game today after what happened at Stamford Bridge last season. It was, frankly, an embarrassment to be taken apart like that, but as both managers pointed out in the build-up to this game, it’s not as if this was the norm by

More than words

We like to be at the cutting edge of stuff here at Arseblog. We were, probably, the first Arsenal blog. We certainly created the first Arsenal podcast, and we’ve invented new words which have become part of the lexicon. But how do you continue to innovate and keep things fresh
