Valencia v Arsenal. Media predicts Arsenal will play with only 10 men.

By Bulldog Drummond

The question is simple: do the recent reversals and upsets in the league make the players more determined in the Europa semi-final, or do those reversals leave them worried about making a mistake, tentative for fear of being the one to let in a goal?

The negative effect that transfer rumours can have on the brain.

By Sir Hardly Anyone.

Football journalists love what in the olden days was called “browsing and sluicing” and is now called something somewhat more basic. Now many of them look like the warrior Tetraites, 30 years after retiring and having had several late nights out on the town. That is to say, rather gone to […]

Mr Emery is not a clown, and Arsenal’s failure is not his fault

By Tony Attwood

Just Arsenal News recently published an article titled “It’s Arsenal’s fault for appointing a clown as the manager” and it immediately became one of the most read articles among the Arsenal blogs and online newspaper columns.

The essence of the article is that Emery should […]

Arsenal v Brighton: the line ups and the media comments

By Bulldog Drummond

Before the matches this weekend the story was that “If Tottenham and Chelsea both win and Arsenal don’t beat Brighton, they won’t be able to qualify for the Champions League via the league.”

As it was even the traditionally pro-Tottenham media had to back off their latest display, the Guardian noting “they […]

12 transfers that Arsenal will make this summer

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Roll up roll up roll up. Take a deep breath, pause, prepare a tumbler full of your favourite tipple, swallow hard and settle yourself down for another cart load of gibberish, fresh (well freshish) from the keyboards of those not yet disinfected.

For it is 9am in the Toppled Bollard, drinking […]

Arsenal in the Europa semis: how the teams have built up to the match.

By Bulldog Drummond

Of course you can’t directly compare the Champions League with the Europa League because of the quality of the opposition, but even so it is interesting to see how have Arsenal have done in Europe since we were runners up in the Champions League in 2006 – and compare with the opposition […]
