I have to admit that I’ve watch Real Sociedad games just to check up on Carlos Vela. While he is now a Sociedad player I’ve always liked Vela and can’t shake the feeling that he could have still done a job in the Premier League. Read on →
Here we are, a day before the start of a new season and unlike most of the recent seasons we are, this time, going in with a feeling that we are better prepared to make an assault on silverware than we been in the recent past.
Of course it wouldn’t have been a summer transfer window without a captain’s saga, and this summer did not fail to disappoint. Read on →
When Jack Warner retired from FIFA he promised a tsunami of revelations that threatened to take down the institution where he made his living. Those of us who have a certain disdain for FIFA and MR. Warner had misgivings about that tsunami ever being unleashed, knowing that any waves could sink Warners ship—that is if he even cared about said ship. Read on →
Consider this: Over the course of the season so far, we have created 17 more chances than Manchester did. Yet they have scored 13 more goals. How then are we supposed to win games if we can’t score goals when the opportunity comes. 274 chances to reap 36 goals than means we waste 87% of chances, this really pisses me of. We go on and on about defending, defenders, injuries, but the real problem is waste, profligacy, discomposure, lack of confidence in front of goal. Read on →
When all of Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool contrived to drop two points, a home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers seemed as good as any to make up ground in the race for the top. Arsenal duly opened the scoring with less than 10 minutes on the clock, making it what looked at the time an inevitable 3 points.

Yossi Benayoun has always been a player I hated, not hated as in I despise the guy or something. I hated him simply because I thought he was a good little player that always seemed to give us a hard time when he played against us.
When I heard the news that we signed him on loan, I don’t think there was an Arsenal fan who was happier than I was. Yes he is older than the norm for an Arsenal player, a bit lightweight, and he surely wouldn’t be a starter. Read on →
In the aftermath of the 2 Manchesters being knocked out of Champions League football, fans of the 2 London teams still in the competition took the occasion to gloat.
Not too impressed with our glee some people—who should really know better—pointed out that 2 less teams in the champions League means less money for Arsenal and Chelsea. The next day Matt Scott of the guardian on national radio confirmed this, adding that it may even affect the English coefficient. Read on →
This is the kind of game we should be winning if we are to finish the season in the top 4, never mind win the damn thing. Wigan being second to bottom had already lost at home to Spurs, Fulham and even Bolton this season so it was imperative that we left Wigan with all 3 points in the bag. Read on →
