Is Mathieu Flamini’s life in grave danger?*

Morning all, a very quick Saturday round-up for you. So, I went to see the new Star Wars last night. No spoilers of course, but the bit where Darth Vader had that swordfight with Peter Parker and Hank Solo flew in the Millenial Poltroon to rescue him and then they

Mourinho sacking a real shame + Arsecast 373 “Not so special”

Good morning everyone! What a lovely Friday it is. It’s a week until Christmas but yesterday Satan came early for Jose Mourinho and took him back to the depths of hell from whence he first came. Bit of a shame really, like Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, and Andre Vilas Boas

Alan Smith – a super strike for the Gunners

Arsenal’s entry into the 1993-94 Cup Winners Cup began the disrobing of my footballing innocence. I was in a state of tabula rasa where European football was concerned, due to a mixture of youthful ignorance (I was 9) and a lack of coverage. The migration of several England internationals to

Training ground mayhem as feel-good Christmas plans go awry

As expected yesterday was a quiet day. Literally nothing happened. Well, of course stuff happened, just not from an Arsenal point of view. The players have had some time off this week, they even had a party where they danced, made merry, and got over the difficult Kris Kindle/Secret Santa

It’s set up for a forward signing in January too

Interestingly, a number of people emailed me about yesterday’s blog. ‘I thought you were better than that’, said one of them, rather disappointedly, as he complained that my mocking of Chelsea and Jose Mourinho was unbecoming. All I can say is that you don’t know me at all, sir. I

We’re no longer top and that’s fantastic + CL draw reaction

Good morning! What a fun morning it is! A cheery, hilarious, uproarious, side-splitting, rib-tickling, laugh-a-minute morning! And it’s all because we’re no longer top of the league. Under normal circumstances this is not something that would be cause for celebration. It’s good being top. Quite obviously it’s better than all

Villa are bottom but we’ll still have be on our Garde

It’s never easy to go away from home after a midweek European jaunt, even if you are playing a side firmly rooted to the bottom of the table. The efforts of Wednesday night were considerable, and there’s little scope to rotate the team, so hopefully there won’t be any kind

It’s Saturday, what do you want from me?

Morning all. It’s raining, and my phone is broken. Well, not broken, per se, but the screen is all smashed and it didn’t even get that way because of shenanigans or anything. I was simply sitting on a chair, phone in my back pocket, and when I took it out
