Watford FC: The Highs and Lows of the Playoffs

As I’m sure has been made apparent, I am an Arsenal fan and have been all my life.

Are Arsenal Destined for the Top 4?

I admit it; I have been one of those pessimistic Arsenal fans. You know the ones.

In a match that promised much, but unfortunately delivered very little, one piece of skill from Demba Ba was all that separated Chelsea and United after 180 minutes of football.

What is Arsenal’s best team without Wilshere?

What is Arsenal’s best team without Wilshere?

It’s like Deja-vu, a valiant second leg performance with a big victory and yet the Gunners are out of the Champions league. Coincidence? Or do the major European teams simply know how to protect a big lead from the first leg? I would suggest the latter, but the cut and thrust is that Arsenal are [...]

SWOL Arsenal Month: Boring, Boring Arsenal!

“Boring, boring Arsenal;” the infamous chant that would resonate around Highbury in the 90s. A team that was so defensively efficient under the stewardship of George Graham and leadership of Tony Adams, that as soon as Ian Wright got his inevitable goal, the points were safe. Jump forward 15 years and the club appears to [...]
