Evaluating The Athletic: does the new magazine have a new vision of Arsenal?

By Tony Attwood

It’s quite possible that England has never had a football magazine like The Athletic before. It is serious, it is adult, there is a lot of it, you have to pay for it, and it is online. So you read it on your “device”.

How football is seen so differently beyond the concrete walls of PGMO

By Tony Attwood

by Sir Hardly Anyone

“We might perhaps remember,” Nitram continued, Man C staff, […]

Are referees biased? Further strangely suggestive figures….

By Tony Attwood

This article continues from the articles two days ago relating to how many cards each team gets.

This table below shows the number of cards per game involving different clubs. The club with the most cards per game is Arsenal with 4.90 cards on average. The lowest is Manchester City with 2.40 […]

Arsenal v Man U injuries, the projected team and yellow cards per foul

By Bulldog Drummond

Looking at the last 10 games between Arsenal and Manchester United we find Arsenal have won three and Manchester United have won four. And indeed it is possible to see something rather positive here in that in the last three league games we have had two draws and a win.
