Calum Chambers Gonna Change Your Mind?

The immediate future of Calum Chambers has been subject to plenty of discussion over the last few weeks. The 21 year old struggled for minutes this season, starting only 2 Premier League games. He made 12 appearances overall in the league, compared to 22 in 2014-15. He acquitted himself well

Remember when people said we should sign [player name]?

Usually when I wake up in the morning my first thought is what I’m going to write about on the blog. Sometimes it’s very clear, there may be an obvious theme or topic dictated by events or happenings or, you know, the football. Other times not so much but I

I was having a wonderful dream this morning – I was about to play for Arsenal in the final game of the season. We were waiting in a room, kicking a ball against the wall, and outside that room was the tunnel. The team sheet came out. I was there.

Boo for Giroud, Chambers out on loan, Walcott confusion

Morning all. It must be tough being Olivier Giroud. Handsome, extremely well paid, very good at football but not quite ‘World Class’ Olivier Giroud. Only the 24 goals last season for the club’s leading scorer, yet people forget the goals and the deft assists and label him the worst Arsenal

Some guys have all the luck

Good morning from a warm sunny Dublin – and if that isn’t the final piece of proof that we’re living a crazy world where anything can happen, I don’t know what is. I’m just sorry that I have no crops for I believe sunshine is great for the growing of

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

So, the Champions League final, disappointingly tame in the end. Real Madrid won it on penalties, Cristiano Ronaldo – who had done approximately nothing all game – spanked home the last one after Juanfran had hit the post. And of course he took his top off. This is his life.

The top 5 most popular Stuff and Things and that

Good morning. What a week it’s been everyone. Not only did we sign a player for tens of millions of pounds, we also got two shirt number changes. I know I’ve mentioned this before but people’s interest in shirt numbers is enormous. I don’t really understand why but then I

I Wanna Be In That Number

“11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.” That’s a quote from one of my favourite movies; Darren Aronofsky’s Pi, about
