Suggestions not always the solution.

Morning all. We are in entertainment, The ground work is to win, but that is not enough. You need the ambition to give more. To go deeper into what the game can give people. To get something more than just the individual expression of the player, but the collective...

Experience still the thorn in Mikel Arteta’s side.

Morning all. I don’t like learning like that, but there’s a lot of learning that we can take from the game for sure. One of the biggest learnings after a disappointing result is focus tomorrow on the next one. Don’t get carried away with what happened in the past...

The boy in short trousers.

Morning all. I think trips to places like Anfield highlight many things and not just that there’s still a long way to go before Arsenal can truly compete for the Premier League title again. If we ever do of course. The likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City are...

A harsh reality check.

Morning all. There’s a ghastly 48 hour bug going around where I live, one which decided to say hello to me on Thursday night. Anyway, I dragged myself out of bed to watch Arsenal take on Liverpool. Trouble is, I could barely keep my eyes open but I’m not sure whether...

Do Arsenal need Adams?

A cut-price parting of ways.

Morning all. The Arsenal women came close to ending their unbeaten run in the WSL yesterday afternoon. It simply didn’t look like being their day against north London rivals Toots. Chances came and went, certainly in the first half but the woodwork the Toots keeper...

Is selling players in January pointless?

Morning all. Emile Smith Rowe made his senior England debut last night. By the time Gareth Southgate called him off the bench, the game was pretty much over as far as the scoreline goes. Still, he’s probably feeling like a million dollars this morning. Bukayo Saka and...

He shoots, tackles, attacks and heads every ball.

Morning all. PSG player Aminata Diallo was was arrested yesterday morning on suspicion of being involved in a nasty attack of one of her team-mates, Kheira Hamraoui. Diallo, 26, has has been at the club for five years, while fellow France international Hamraoui, 31,...

Emile fibbing after training with England?

Morning all. It’s definitely a dream come true. I didn’t expect it. Obviously I was planning to go with the U21s and I got a phone call the day before from Gareth, saying I’d been called up to the first team. It was a great moment for me and my...
