And finally, Laurent Koscielny has signed for the Arsenal. His free Arsenal.com video is a brilliant mix of new signing intro and new shirt promotion. “We bought this! Now buy these!” Luckily, both new shirts are ace. We have laughed many a time in the past about how Wenger pulls signings from nowhere and presents […]

So England have slunk home sheepishly, and the inquest has begun in earnest as to quite how it went so calamitously wrong. I’m not going to get into that inquest here though, what with me being thoroughly bored of our biennial national slip-up, and this blog being of a club hue. A club, incidentally, that […]

Arsenal 0-0 Manchester City Season ticket renewal time is almost upon us – and what better way to offset the pain of some of the priciest tickets in the country than with a reminder of what Arsenal do best: Goals, technique, speed and a never-say-die attitude? All those things will doubtless be unveiled against Fulham […]

Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal It’s easier to damn than to praise after a defeat against your long-suffering nearest rivals, so let’s start off with the praise. Firstly, for Arsenal to retain bragging rights in this fixture for 20 games, lasting over a decade, is a magnificent achievement for Arsene Wenger, it really is. History will forever […]

Lionel roars It’s now just a week to go until Barcelona roll into the Grove, and quite honestly, I think I can allow myself another dose of early excitement. Yes, I know there’s a crucial Premier League game at St. Andrews first up – they’re all crucial now – but without a midweek match there’s […]

Guardian squad sheet BBC preview Another weekend, another match we can’t afford not to win, but for the time being at least we dream of Catalonia. Yes of course, the draw for the European Cup could have pitted us against CSKA Moscow or Bordeaux, but where’s the fun in that? To me, the European Cup […]

I was listening to the Guardian’s Football Weekly Extra podcast the other day, and Rob Smyth stuck his neck out by stating he’d be “astonished” if Arsenal didn’t win the league this season. A pretty bold prediction if you ask me. You won’t catch me sticking my neck out on such matters – in fact, […]

Stoke City 3-1 Arsenal I said yesterday that Wenger had little choice but to gamble in today’s FA Cup game. Gamble he did – and he lost. As expected, he chose a mixture of youth and experience. In the young corner were Emmanuel-Thomas (first team debut), Coquelin (a lick of Milk Cup only) and Eastmond […]

Football, I can report, still has the power to amaze. After a sabbatical of 3½ years, Sol Campbell’s all set to sign for Arsenal until the end of the season. Amazing because he’s 35, amazing because he’s hardly the age profile of the classic Wenger signing, and amazing because despite having trained for months with […]
