This is the worst Arsenal season in 25 years. But can we do what we did back then?

By Tony Attwood

And so the noisy fans with their little banners and rather small protest marches have had their way. Two managers out and millions upon millions upon millions spent on players – just as they demanded. And for what?

Well, in order to get us seven points above relegation

Transfer table update: the 23 players Arsenal are tipped to be buying

By Sir Hardly Anyone

I am not sure there has ever been a transfer window like this with such a paucity of transfer news as we have in this one. Normally by now we’d expect to have 40 to 50 men coming to Arsenal, but this January, its very poor. Very, very poor. Just 23, […]

Arsenal could win the league, if only the club would listen to its critics

by Sir Hardly Anyone

I have been arguing for a long time that football journalists, far from being the experts they claim to be, actually have no more idea what is going on than anyone else, and are thus completely redundant. Except for the fact that they run the football agenda by controlling what goes […]

Have you ever felt that football journalists are treating you like an idiot?

by Sir Hardly Anyone

You may have noticed that of late there has been a major shift among the newspapers and websites over Arsenal transfer news. Up to last summer there was some sort of attempt in most journalistic reports to link the headline to the text of the “story” as it is known in […]

Why, as Arsenal fans, are we constantly criticising the media?

By Christophe Jost and Tony Attwood

A lot of writing and broadcasting about football obviously consists of personal opinion. When such commentary is done well it tends to be backed up by examples, comparisons and facts. When it is done poorly one of these three elements – the examples, the comparisons and the facts – […]

Where next for football on TV? More of the same, more of the same.

by Tony Attwood

In the UK we get most of our football on TV via four channels: the BBC, which is free to air and covers occasional live games but mostly focusses on highlights after the match, ITV which at the moment focuses on international games, Sky and BT Sport – these last two being […]

Reffymandering: the new football word to describe the game in the third decade

By Tony Attwood

What is in a word?

Quite a lot sometimes if it allows us to express something complex in a simple way.

The word gerrymander (originally written Gerry-mander) was invented by a writer on the Boston Gazette in 1812. It was used when the electoral boundaries in Massachusetts were redrawn to help the […]

Arsenal v Leeds: the history between the clubs and the team news

By Bulldog Drummond

It may seem hard to recall this as being the case but there was a time when the Arsenal v Leeds games were the biggest grudge matches of the campaign, and the rivalry between the supporters of each club out ranked that of most others.

Arsenal have won the FA Cup more than any other team – but no one will celebrate

Arsenal have won the FA Cup more than any other team. They have also appeared in the final of the competition more than any other team except Manchester United, who have 20 final appearances – exactly the same as do Arsenal. Arsenal also have had the manager – Mr Wenger – who […]

Arsenal players must be sold as new tactical approach revealed, but no money

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Having more or less run out of players to tip as being the men about to join Arsenal, the media have reversed their strategy today and are now looking for players that they can claim are about to leave.
