On English teams crapping out of Europe

A woeful Champions League season for English clubs ended last night as Man City were hammered 1-0 by a Messi inspired Barcelona. Only for Bob Dandruff in nets the score could have hit double figures, and hopefully that’s him using up all his saves in one night so they let

Monaco preview: Players sound rallying cry, but reality bites

Champions League action tonight as we look to pull off what would be a minor miracle in Monaco after losing the first leg 3-1 at home. We all know the stats, how rarely a two-goal deficit is overturned in the knock-out stages, and the fact is we have to go

Part of this potency was that there was an almost otherworldly quality about his presence on the football pitch; like an Olympic sprinter

Believe in the unbelievable belief and that

Morning all, welcome to a brand new week. It’s a strange one here because St Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and that’s the one day of the year when Irish people refuse to take a sup of drink. When you consider the task at hand tomorrow evening that’s unfortunate because it

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Do you have something of an extra spring in your step this week? A little joie de vivre? Specifically a wiggle in the walk and a giggle in the talk? Are you full of spunk? I certainly am. The downstairs staff are a touch more relaxed since last Monday evening.

Ox ham, Bellerin’s new deal + Arsecast 344

Happy Friday to you. Or, as we say in Irish, Rith mé ar nós na gaoithe. Which means ‘I ran like the wind’. This was one of the only phrases I could ever remember in Irish so I’d put it in all the essays I ever wrote. Until one day
