    Henry - A Great Big Woman

    Cheat. Liar. Criminal. Who would have thought that these would have been the words we would eventually associate with the much-loved, oft-celebrated Thierry Henry? Well, me, actually. For all the magnificence that he has shown on the pitch over the years, he has been like this for a few years...

    Padded Seats?

    I know it has been talked about by Ron and I think on here, but being at The Emirates tonight and visiting Stadium MK last season, I quite like the padded seats and find them quite comfortable to sit on. Just want to know what people think whether we should or shouldn't when FF eventually gets...
  4. When Genius Met Lunacy

    Socrates. Paolo di Canio. Eric Cantona. Emannuel Adebayor. All undeniably great players that have suffered from the madness that often comes with the territory of genius. A game that celebrated some fantastic, flowing football will undoubtedly be remembered for two incidents surrounding the...

    £10 to watch Arsenal!

    Couldn't believe it. Arsenal vs West Brom in the Carling Cup on the 22nd of Sept only £10 a ticket. I bought the tickets as unfortunately my misses is a Gooner but she hasn't been to The Emirates. So thought I would treat her and kill two birds with one stone and cross the ground off my list...

    No Chance For Youth At The Top

    One week on from The Great Chelsea Punishment and still the sense of shock reverberates through the global game. A steady stream of similar accusations have trickled in through the front door of FIFA HQ with some of English football's proudest names implicated in the scandal. Poaching, it is...

    Arsenal's Better Half

    Ask a new convert to Arsenal what the club's greatest weakness is and you'll get a variety of answers. You might hear that the players are too young, or that there's no cover in defensive midfield, or even that Nicklas Bendtner is a lumbering oaf incapable of even the simplest of motor skills...

    Even I Can't Back The Gunners

    As anyone who recalls my contributions to 'The Bet Shop Boys' will know, I'm not much of a gambler. Instead of always betting on the likeliest outcome, I have a reckless and self-destructive habit of only making predictions that might make me seem really clever. Sometimes, like the time I backed...

    Adebayor - No Loss

    Generally, when a club agrees to sell their top goalscorer, you can expect a certain reaction from the supporters. It tends to range from anywhere between frenzied phonecalls to the local radio station and furious protests against the chairman in the carpark. Occasionally, in really serious...

    Adebayor Needs Arsenal

    Do you think Emmanuel Adebayor realises that he may have brought all this upon himself? It always amazes me when footballers stand in front of the cameras and tell the world that their manager must start spending money on better players. They never seem to comprehend, even for a moment, that...

    Saxon Hall, SS2

    Got to go here for a meeting next Wednesday, off Aviation Way I understand, presumably past the Airport Hotel.....anyone else give me any pointers? Incidentally, follow up meeting (for "special" people only!) is at the Emirates next month - I'm really excited about it!

    Cheated Chelsea Lose The Plot

    It was a night that should have been memorable for the beauty of Michael Essien's opening goal, but it is a raging Didier Drogba who will linger in the mind's eye. Furious with the referee's failure to award any one of four possible penalties, he shouted and screamed in his face before being...

    Don't Panic, Arsene

    As dawn broke on the morning after the worst night of his career, I wonder what Arsene Wenger was doing. For some reason, I imagine him stood at the back door of his house, watching the sun rise slowly over his dew-drenched garden, sipping coffee and shaking his head pensively, wondering what...

    Return Of The Old Guard

    How very retro. There was a time when any game between Arsenal and Manchester United was epoch-shaking. They were the two giants of the domestic game, battling out their own private war while the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and, this'll make you laugh, Newcastle could only look on from the...

    Champions League Reports

    Apologies, I've been rushed off my feet this week. Here's both games for you. Is it so inconceivable that Arsenal could end this strangest of seasons as Champions of Europe? Arsene Wenger described his side as 'super-outsiders' before the first leg of their clash with Villarreal, but even after...

    Super-Outsiders? Not A Chance.

    Villarreal 1-1 Arsenal Senna, 10 Adebayor, 66 If it is true that whatever fails to kill you makes you stronger, then soon Arsenal will be invincible. After the painful grind of a season ruined by injuries and internal dispute, the Gunners are growing as a team, and as men. To come back from...

    2009/10 New Kit Mock Ups

    So, The new Nike teamwear launch was last night at the Emirates. I got the images of the new kits today and have mocked up some possibilities as what could be our home shirt for next season. Just for a bit of fun pick which one you like the most. Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 My personal...

    Furious Phil Unleashes Hell

    Arsenal 2-1 Hull City (Van Persie, 74) (Barmby, 12) (Gallas, 84) Phil Brown's phone will be red hot by now. In one exhilarating ten minute press conference, the furious Hull City manager unleashed a string of attacks aimed at everyone he deemed responsible for his team's exit. He accused Cesc...
