We only have one more midweek fixture!

Looking at our fixtures for the rest of the season, I was struck by how favourable they look. Not anything to do with the opposition, but because we now only have one midweek match left (against Spurs on Wednesday April 20th).

Barcelona 3 – 1 Arsenal | Outplayed but not disgraced

The goal attempts stat is quite damning – Barcelona 19, Arsenal 0. And yet we might have actually won! For a team which had no shots at goal all evening, it’s quite amazing that we got a goal and had a

Why I won’t mind if we exit the Champions League tomorrow

If we are to win the Champions League for the first time in our history, we need to get through tomorrow’s match and then play two quarter final ties, two semis and the final. That’s 5 more games. Do we really

Arsenal 0 – 0 Sunderland | Our lack of depth is exposed once again

Arsenal failed to capitalise fully on Man Utd’s loss to Chelsea by only drawing with a Sunderland side which had lost their last four league matches. Robbed of five first choice players through injury (Vermaelen, Song, Fabregas, Walcott and van Persie)

Arsenal 5 – 0 Orient | The perfect gentle workout

Wenger may have been fuming when we drew our initial cup tie at Orient, but after Sunday’s calamity he was probably glad of the opportunity to get the Birmingham result out of our system with a simple home game. And that’s

Actually, to say we were mugged isn’t really a correct analogy. More like Koscielny & Szczesny went over to Alex McLeish, tapped him on the shoulder and politely handed over our wallet. I don’t like to single out Koscielny or Szczesny

Can we penetrate without Captain Fantastic?

In the first 14 minutes against Stoke, Fabregas made three key passes: setting up Walcott for his shot against the post, lobbing forward to Bendtner who failed to control adequately, and pushing another ball through to Walcott who scuffed his shot.

Wenger poaches another kid from Barca for his conveyor belt

Arsenal yesterday announced the signing of 16 year old Jon Toral from Barcelona’s youth academy. The deal will cost us £350,000. As I understand it Spanish sides can’t sign their youth players to professional contracts before the age of 16, so

Arsenal 1 – 0 Stoke | One nil to the football team!

The ditty we like to sing after taking the lead was given a witty twist last night as we reminded that jumped up nobody Pulis just how pathetic his rugby football team are after Squillaci headed us into the lead on

I know his leg’s hanging off, but it was my first offence ref!

I need to get this off my chest because it’s the most annoying fallacy in football. Tonight Torres made a foul on a breaking Copenhagen player, bringing him down clumsily on halfway and receiving a yellow card. The idiot commentator Alan
