Arsenal 1-2 Wigan  Well last night was rubbish. Not really much more to say of it than that.

A glass wall that covered roughly the final third [...]

Arsenal 3 – 0 AC Milan Feeling after last night’s match couldn’t have been more different to feeling after the first leg in Milan if it had tried. After the 4-0 beat down we endured back then, there was anger, sadness, disappointment, confusion and serious panic. There were no explanations as to just how horrible [...]

Arsenal 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers Merry After-Christmas from me and my newly-formed double chin. A calorific time of the season indeed but hey, it’s winter and the nights are getting colder. If one does not gain the weight with which one can utilize to keep oneself warm for the duration of climate hell that is January, [...]

Very late post-Fulham/pre-City blog.

Sorry for the lateness of this blog, but if you read the very short post I put up last night, you’ll see why it is. There have been tributes aplenty since the news that Wales manager Gary Speed had passed away. I’m not sure I could do any better than the things that have already [...]

Dearest club football, Does it not feel like an age since we last did meet? How have you been? How are the children? Almost fully grown since West Brom, I would imagine. Let us not leave it so long again, hmm? I missed you. And I know that you missed me. Let’s just not do [...]

Arsenal 3-0 West Bromwich Albion And how they prayed for a stress-free afternoon. And lo, unto them He did grant it, and there was much rejoicing. And He saw that it was good. If He’d care to grant similar afternoons in the coming weeks, we’d all be much obliged. Sorry if my Bible language is [...]
