Everton – Arsenal 2-5, a walk in the (Goodison) Park

By Walter Broeckx

Arsenal started with Cech – Bellerin – Koscielny – Mertesacker – Monreal – Kolasinac – Ramsey – Xhaka – Özil – Alexis – Lacazette

And Arsenal started really well and pushed Everton back and created lots of space for ourselves…. and chances. Özil brought the ball to Alexis who came in from […]

Everton v Arsenal. The teams and how the toffee went soft and the media forgave them

by Bulldog Drummond

Ah Everton. You might remember that we did a review of the home support of most of our rivals in the Premier League before this season began. It is still on […]

The soft toffee ruffians v Arsenal. The preview

By Bulldog Drummond

According to the ever amusingly illogical Sky Sprout discussion Everton are suffering from the pressure of the crowd. The view, we were told is that,”We’ve got the money we’ll have a new ground” and so apparently they ought to be winning. Perhaps we should tell them that building a new ground […]

Why the government can’t reform the FA, and why the FA will (sadly) survive forever

By Tony Attwood

If you have taken a glance at the broader news of football of late you will know that there is an ever deepening scandal surrounding the FA at the moment, a scandal that has swamped Greg Clarke, the chairman, and Martin Glenn, the chief executive. It has shown the FA completely […]

Everton v Arsenal: early team news, player and spectator violence at Goodison.

By Bulldog Drummond

And so Arsenal return from foreign parts having won their last four European away games – which is not bad considering how everyone says we are useless away from home. And we also kept a clean sheet away from home for the first time since beating Olympiakos 3-0 in December 2015.

There […]

Bloggettas go into frantic frenzied bonkers meltdown seeking negatives in Arsenal victory

By Tony Attwood

Bloggettas – blogs with average articles of around 100 words – sometimes fewer – often published by their operators several times an hour, with the prime interest in getting negativists to click on adverts, usually by mistake.

Many are owned by newspapers desperate to find a way to make money in […]

Red Star v Arsenal: the line up, and a chance to show journalists Sremska Mitrovica and Goli otok

by Bulldog Drummond

The latest name in the frame for Arsenal tonight is Josh Dasilva. He’s what is known on the profile as a “Dominating mid elder” (all the young midfielders on have been listed as “mid elders” for reason that have never quite become clear). “Josh proved his worth at both under-23 […]

Just when you thought the Arsenal situation couldn’t get any worse, something very big.

by Bulldog Drummond

Just when you might be thinking it couldn’t get any worse it gets worse as along comes the headline “Arsene Wenger dealt injury blow ahead of Everton clash”.

“Blimey”, you may be thinking if your mind encapsulates such quaint 20th century expletives. “Blimey. We haven’t dealt with things in Serbia yet, and […]

Yet more changes proposed by the FA for Women’s Football

by Andrew Crawshaw

From the start of the 2018 season, the FA intend to make radical changes to the makeup of Women’s Football. Currently there are 20 clubs in the the Women’s Super League, 10 in each of the two divisions. Eight of the clubs in WSL1 are fully professional, Sunderland and Yeovil are not, […]

Julian Draxler to Arsenal? Knowing the Truth Behind It

By Robert Staples


Paris Saint-Germain’s elite winger, Julian Draxler, made it to the headlines after rumors about his possible transfer to Arsenal surfaced. All of this started when Draxler posted a photo of his friend Kolasinac’s shirt in social media. Because of this, netizens, specifically those found on Twitter, can’t help but expect the […]

Arsenal planning to sack Wenger, the player breakthrough, squad discontent, Rowley Birkin.

By Tony Attwood

As far as I can work out (and I must admit I am only an amateur historian) fake news was introduced into English newspapers as a method of filling their pages during the first world war at a time when the government imposed a strict censorship on the war news.

If […]

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal: an alternative approach to the line up.

By Bulldog Drummond

Yesterday’s meander around the possibilities of who might play against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday gave us this range of possibilities


Holding, A, B,

Nelson, Maitland-Niles,

Willock, Coquelin

Walcott, Wilshere,


For A and B positions I put in […]

Every day the FA reveals its corruption and incompetence more fully

by Tony Attwood


The FA, like all national associations, allies itself utterly and totally to Fifa, an organisation known to have used, and quite probably is still using, corrupt methods in its running football. And an organisation known to being working hand in glove with a country that uses slave labour to build its […]

The amazing centre back revelation and kicking Mesut out the door.

by Sir Hardly Anyone

Part 1: Sign the wonderkid

When we have the Metro quoting the Mirror and the Mail for a story whose origin is “according to reports” you know that reportage has got just about as low as it is going to go. But for the sake of the record, let’s give it […]

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal: the team and early prognostications and whatnot

by Bulldog Drummond


And so off we go again into foreign parts, primarily with a different team from that which played at the weekend in the League.

Just so you know what to expect here is a picture of the stadium.

It is a 2 hours 40 minutes flight, and there is also […]

Fifa and Uefa: the corruption continues. Is it really just limited to the world game?

By Tony Attwood

Ever since the organising countries for the world cups in 2018 and 2022 were announced questions have been asked. Russia, because (to give just one tiny example) it undertook all of its application work and correspondence on computers that it hired, and then gave back to the company it borrowed them from. […]

How do we know if match fixing is taking place or not?

By Tony Attwood

The little piece yesterday afternoon giving the reasons why it is logical to expect there to be corruption in Premier League football, brought a larger than normal amount of vitriol and a larger than normal number of commentaries that had little if anything to do with the post, or contained no evidence […]

Why would anyone ever believe that the Premier League is not corrupt?

By Tony Attwood

There are, it seems, many people who don’t or won’t believe that the Premier League has been corrupted in way. And I have begun to wonder why they believe that there is no corruption.

After all, one only has to look around the UK to know that corruption is everywhere. Indeed the […]

Referees and the lack of VAR have cost us 6 points so far this season

By Walter Broeckx

Another season, another PGMO hate party it seems. What we have been showing through detailed analyses all these years is just continuing to happen. And the worst part is that the media is just joining in with the referees and making nothing of it. They love it.

At Stoke we should have […]

Swartford – Arsenal 2-1, another Swarbrick inspired defeat

By Walter Broeckx

I couldn’t write down my minute by minute report of this match.

So I will solely focus on the main events. Because in fairness we didn’t play well. We dominated but too many loose balls and lost balls. Lacazette looked the more lively of our strikers but didn’t find a team mate […]

Watford v Arsenal: the teams. No Wilshere, rambling criticism and a “double figure” moment

You might have thought that one or two journalists might have learned the lesson from Untold’s long-running criticism of Amy Lawrence over her comment about Arsenal having only two players who scored in double figures the season before last. The point was, it was true, […]

Watford v Arsenal Saturday 14 October – The biased ref with an (occasionally) inadequate knowledge of the rules.

by Andrew Crawshaw

For our first post-interlul game our officials are :-

Referee – Neil Swarbrick Age 50 from Lancashire Assistant Referee 1 – Scott Ledger from South Yorkshire Assistant Referee 2 – Adrian Holmes from West Yorkshire Fourth Official – Graham Scott Age 48 from Oxfordshire

So for the first time in a long […]

Watford v Arsenal. High alert, score predictions, who passes most, and the squad

by Bulldog Drummond

For a year or two now I have been reading about clubs being on “High Alert”. Apparently at the moment Manchester City are on “High Alert” because they might be able to buy Alexis in January. For a year or two now I have been reading about clubs being on “High Alert”. […]

Continental Cup – The First Round report.

by Andrew Crawshaw

The Continental Tyres Cup is the Women’s equivalent of the League Cup. It is a competition that has seen a change in makeup this season moving from a straight knockout to four mini-leagues with the top two in each moving to a knockout phase.

The teams in the top two tiers of […]
