Matchday 3

By Arun

As the transfer market is coming to a close today, the hit hungry media is busy hosting live 24 hour blogs for the ‘frantic Friday’. At the time of the writing, it seems that Bendtner has gone on loan to Juventus, and Park has also gone on loan, while we might […]

Who said project youth was dead?

The club that changed football

—————————–

By Cameron Wolfe.

It is just coming up to 1pm UK time, and so far all that seems to have happened on transfer day is that Nic Bendtner is in Turin to have a medical with Juventus.

So perhaps we will have to look elsewhere for signings… […]

Champions League draw

 

By Tony Attwood

So now we know: Schalke, Montpellier, Olympiakos – not too bad at all in my view. And we can watch Man City play Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund with some interest.

Schalke reached third place in the Bundesliga. They have won their first match this season (a cup match against lower […]

Ref Review: Arsenal vs Sunderland (0 – 0) [18/08/2012]

———————- Woolwich Arsenal: the club that changed football

For two years now we have been reviewing the performances of referees in matches involving Arsenal. Last year we introduced reviews of non-Arsenal matches.

Now we have once again expanded, and we have set up a separate site to review the non-Arsenal games: Referee Decisions.

Links to […]

Next Gen, Wembley, Champs League etc etc

By Tony Attwood

If you want a review of the Next Gen under 19s game against Marseille there is one on the Arsenal.com site – and it is absolutely purring about the quality of the performance.

Here are the players – the two marked * also played in the last under 21 game for Arsenal.

Arsenal v Marseille tonight. Football starts to reform as Next Gen launches

By Tony Attwood

One of the problems we face with our younger players is that for every one who comes through the system and plays for the first team there are a dozen or more who get to the reserves or go out on loan, and then are deemed not good enough.

Because of that […]

Who referees the referees? We do, and we’ve got a new service this season.

By Walter Broeckx

As you might have noticed the new season is already 10 days old and no referee review has been published.

No, don’t worry we didn’t gave up. We didn’t call it a day and gave a free pass to the PGMOL to further ruin our beautiful game. We didn’t start what we […]

Calling football chaotic gives chaos a bad name

By Tony Attwood

There was a lovely moment in the debate about PSG in which a rather annoyed reader wrote in and told me in no uncertain terms not to write about PSG (whom, he implied, no one cared about, despite their being the richest club in the world) and instead talk about real clubs […]

If you’re going to boo then at least boo for the right reason.

Are Stoke fans the saddest in the League?

By Cameron Wolfe

Going to Stoke in the last few seasons has normally been difficult to say the least. It used to be Bolton that the media would pick out as the team that we were constantly being bullied by. Now it seems that Stoke have picked […]

What would Arsenal look like if Mr Usmanov had taken control this summer?

By Tony Attwood

There were two 0-0 draws of interest on Sunday. One of course you will know all about, and undoubtedly the AAA are setting out their new stall. Last season it was all about how many goals we let in. Now realising that we don’t let in goals any more they are talking […]

Arsenal Vs The Premier League’s Rugby Team

Arsenal Vs The Premier Leagues Rugby Team

By Miles Rackham

Firstly fellow Arsenal fans, we are not in a crisis. Ok so we drew with Sunderland, but, they are a strong team, and I personally think they have a great manager, and they are going to have some good results this season, so I think […]

Is it time for a wage cap in the Premier League?

Are salary caps and contract trades in football the way of the future?

By Cameron Wolfe

I read an article years ago which compared football transfers with transfers in North American sports ( NFL, NHL, baseball etc) and in which the question was posed: Would an alternative transfer approach work here in football?

The fundamental […]

Consider a mid-field that looks like this….

By Tony Attwood

Consider a midfield that looks like this:

Cazorla Oxlade-Chamberlain Diaby

or

Diaby Oxlade-Chamberlain Arteta

or

Oxlade-Chamberlain Arteta Wilshere

or

Oxlade-Chamberlain Wilshere Cazorla

or

Wilshere Arteta Rosicky

The book tells many stories – supplied by the full spectrum of our club’s supporters. Some will make you laugh, others will make you […]

We need two refs and two extra linesmen, as well as more technology

Our Woolwich Arsenal book nominated for an award

By Cameron Wolfe

Back in 2008 Uefa introduced its extra officials: one behind each goal line.

The extra officials were initially tested in European Under-19 qualifying competitions in 2008 before being trialled in the 2009/10 Europa League group stages. Subsequently, trials were then expanded to include the […]

Ordinary is Pointless

By Tony Attwood

Now if you just support Arsenal and no one else, you may be forgiven for not noticing that the FA Cup started before the Olympics finished. In fact it started with the Extra Preliminary Round the same weekend that the Community Shield thing happened.

In fact […]

Why bother with international matches when countries can now own clubs?

———————— Ordinary is Pointless

By Tony Attwood

Looking at a league table after one match is rather like looking at a chest of drawers where only the knobs that help you open each drawer has delivered. Not much clue to what the overall picture is going to be.

In France however, unhampered by the […]
