Next season’s new players: the complete guide (well almost)

By Tony Attwood

Reading some of the commentaries on web sites concerning all the players Arsenal absolutely must buy this summer, it looks to me as if a lot of commentators don’t want to see any players from our junior ranks being promoted this year.

Which is a bit of a shame, because I think […]

Has the summer already started?

By Walter Broeckx

A moment’s reflection on life, politics, bias, blogs, commentary, motoring, tackling, football and the Daily Mail

Every now and then Arsène Wenger speaks out on the tackles that Arsenal players suffer, and saying they should not be allowed in the game. Diaby, Eduardo, Ramsey are examples that we all know.

So far so good

By Walter Broeckx

As there is not really anything happening at Arsenal I will give a short impression of the past days in regards of some Arsenal players.

Half way through the international break and so far so good for Arsenal.

The only scare we had so far was the moment when Bendtner hurt […]

There are no easy run ins

By Walter Broeckx

As we approach the final dash to the finish line after the international break I think it would be good thing to compare the games the top 3 has to play.

I will include Chelsea in this because after beating Manchester City they might be in it with a chance. But if […]

Defeats: who is to blame and who not?

By Walter Broeckx

Arsenal on the up or just floundering?

by Tony Attwood

Which camp you are in depends to […]

The Real achievement at the Lane

By Ian Trevett

It hasn’t been much fun reading some of the posts on less supportive Arsenal sites this week, with lots of vitriol aimed at the boss and various players. However, there was a short post on Arsenal Insider that really took my eye. It went along the […]

A disappointing result against Manchester United in the FA Cup feels a long time ago but the fixture list reveals it was in fact last Saturday. This slower life is something the Arsenal fan will have to get used to: with our involvement in the cups over for this season, we’ll have […]

The difference between what is said and what is meant

By Walter Broeckx

Here we go again. What is the matter with some part of our fans? Do they have no brains? Or are they just like me from other parts of the world where English is not their mother language and so they misunderstand things?

But even I as a non-English speaker can grab […]

The first step towards resolving the issues raised in part one must be to ask what we feel […]

Are Premier League matches fixed? A review of the evidence

By Tony Attwood

Consider Mark Clattenburg. He is 35, and one of 16 select group officials that run EPL games.

He is the guy who failed to punish Wayne Rooney for the elbow against Wigan Athletic’s James McCarthy. Then he gave Fulham a penalty against Blackburn Rovers that not everyone was convinced by.

Now is the time to support our team

By Walter Broeckx

Losing to United is not a pleasant thing. I don’t like it. Losing to Barcelona, and certainly the way the ref threw a shadow over the second game is very frustrating. I don’t like it at all. But do we have to throw all and everyone over board? Let me just give […]
