Arsenal in desperate need of a good ride

‘When you fall off the horse, get straight back in the saddle,’ is the advice given to people who fall off horses and don’t get paralysed, or really injured, or hit their heads and think they’re Napoleon. At this point, having fallen off so many horses so many times, we

Are Arsenal set up for life without Arsene Wenger?

I don’t know about you, but yesterday was somewhat cathartic for me. The anger at what we saw against United on Sunday has diminished into something like resignation, or deep sadness, because as maddening as it was, it was only that way because it came from a good place. I

Tactics Column: Man United expose top-heavy Arsenal

Arsene Wenger couldn’t quite underpin what went wrong. After the game, he tried to rationalise the surprise 3-2 defeat by saying Manchester United still had a team acquired for millions more than Arsenal, but in the end, the damage was done by a rookie striker. “I can’t fault our commitment,

Stick or twist up front as Wenger seeks goal drought solution

Premier League action today as we go to Old Trafford seeking a first league win there since 2006. Arsene Wenger won’t pay too much heed to that statistic. It’s a different Arsenal team, it’s a different United team, and ultimately what happened there over the last few years is fairly

On this very day fourteen years ago, I sat down at my computer in my office in Spain. It was probably warmer than it is here in Ireland today … I really miss being warm most of the time. Anyway, my big bulbous Mac monitor, like a gigantic first edition

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

I have had something of a sojourn recently. A retreat, if you will. One occasionally must, for the elevation of the soul, take a breath. Remove oneself from the trivialities of life.

Sacrificial Ram

It’s fair to say that Aaron Ramsey’s relationship with Arsenal fans has been complicated since his arrival eight years ago. His stock has fluctuated, subject to constant, dizzying revisions. At this moment in time, you could probably allocate him the “divides opinion” tag, shared by many of his colleagues. (Hi

Can Arsenal Spring(field) back into goalscoring form?

Good morning everyone, hope you’re well today. I woke up at 2.30am and found it hard to get back to sleep, but then I lapsed into a kind of doze in which I was dreaming about Mathieu Flamini having the body of a shark and it wasn’t very restful at
