Calling Lady Luck on the injury front.

Morning all. Why in life do we look for problems when there are none? Why do we oft look for a negative instead of making the most of a good situation and why is it, the “what if” often looms large? The human brain is a complex thing but it’s...

Premier League chatter changes.

Morning all. The chatter about central defenders in the Premier League used to be about Virgil van Dijk, Harry Maguire, Jon Stones, Antonio Rudiger, Nathan Ake, the old boy Chelsea signed and even Tyrone Mings. The best of course, or at least the player most praised...

Close to perfection….

    Morning all. It seems wrong to be writing about 22 men kicking a bag of air around on the day of the late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, but life goes on. The now King Charles knows that, as do all of his family who’ve barely stopped for breath...

Xeka arrival? Mikel Arteta gives nothing away.

Morning all. Record crowds watched the Arsenal women beat their Brighton counterparts last night. 4-0 was the end result with Beth Mead continuing her Euro’s form by scoring two of the goals. Kim Little and Stina Blackstenius Scored the other two. An early red...

Morning all. Our match on Thursday night has been postponed but Sunday’s game against Brentford will go ahead, albeit at midday instead of 2pm. I’m glad the Premier League along with both clubs have managed to sort this out because having to somehow fit...

Cancel Culture Wrong?

Morning all. This weekend’s football is off but I’m not sure it’s the right thing to do, especially when all other sport seems to be carrying on in one way or another. History tells us that the Queen didn’t stop working because of a...

Arsenal win on a day filled with sadness.

Morning all. The news so many people probably never wanted to hear, came yesterday. The passing of the Queen is dreadfully sad news, but not even she could go on forever. A truly remarkable lady who will be missed. Football kind of feels insignificant this morning but...

Saliba gets my vote. Rest/rotation for Zurich.

Morning all. European football for the 2022/23 season has kicked off. Man City breezed through their fixture but Chelsea suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb. Aubameyang made his debut for the west London club which according to reports, didn’t go as...

Forget the kids for Europa?

Morning all. Isn’t it frustrating to read that whilst the Arsenal first team are struggling to find the back of the net, Flo Balogun is scoring goals in France? Heck, even Nuno Tavares is scoring goals too. Apparently he’s been superb so far this season....
