In a season that has served up intense game after intense game, we got another last night as our Arsenal boys powered home from a goal down to beat Everton 2-1 at The Emirates. That the victory came after such an appalling decision from the referees to allow Louis Saha’s goal — the striker was […]

This game was an opportunity to get the ball rolling again after a difficult week and that’s exactly what the players did as we cruised to a 3-0 win over bottom-of-the-table West Ham United. Robin van Persie scored two, including his first from open play this season as well as another well-taken penalty, while Theo […]
It hasn’t been a great week, has it? Leeds at home in the FA Cup and Ipswich away in the Carling Cup were two fixtures that we all expected to win and after the relief of grabbing a replay against Leeds, the shock of losing to Ipswich was pretty severe. Perhaps what has irked people […]
I have arrived back in Berlin after a two-week break in Sweden and that means the usual blogging service will resume shortly.

There’s no preview for the Chelsea game tonight — I’m still on holiday in Sweden and enjoying a little break from writing — so I’m just opening up a thread for comment and discussion on the game. Here’s to three points. Have your say on Arsenal v Chelsea by leaving a comment.
I have deliberately stayed away from every football website and blog in the aftermath of last night’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United with the hope of providing an uninfluenced account of the game. First things first I don’t believe we deserved to win the game and given the statistics and the quality of United’s defensive […]
