It’s going to be great, it was awful as we expected, Santi Cazorla and Leeds.

By Tony Attwood

Looking back, as one does at this time of year, it was interesting to see how quickly the build up of excitement and enthusiasm in the media concerning the Champions League final dissipated. And it wasn’t just a feeling of regret that surrounded the Tottenham v Liverpool match in the media, […]

10 more players coming to Arsenal, and four big names leaving and Freddie

By Sir Hardly Anyone

In the ongoing struggle to find players who by a very long stretch of the imagination might actually come to Arsenal, the media have, since we last looked, found another 10, thus taking the total so far to 46. And remember the transfer window isn’t even slightly ajar as yet.

But […]

We predicted six champions before the season started. We got all six right.

By Tony Attwood . The last three posts have been talking about corruption in football. Where corruption is taking place on a major scale it ought to be possible to predict who is going to win the league, and have already mentioned in an earlier post that at the start of the 2018/19 season, […]

A season of mellow fruitlessness

 

by Blacksheep

I must say, from the start, that I started this past season with low expectations. I thought we’d miss out on the top four (when Tony often said we’d make it). I expected we’d do better in the Europa League than last season because, well, history tends to suggest that a little […]

Football is getting so predictable one season seems much like the last.

By Tony Attwood

In the 15 years since Arsenal’s unbeaten season – an event which has not yet been emulated of course – only four teams have won the Premier League: Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City. Noting this I thought it might be worth asking the question, “Does that mean that the […]
