Arsenal linked with £6m England International

Following yesterday’s Aaron Ramsey ‘exclusive’ I’m inclined not to read or believe anything from the Mail ever again. But as other news places have now picked up this story as well – it’s probably worth mentioning. Anyway – the Mail have this morning linked Arsenal with a £6m move for Norwich’s John Ruddy to…


VIDEO Norwich 0 Arsenal 2 The highlights

  Aaron Ramsey’s wonderful volley and Carl Jenkinson’s first ever goal for the club gave Arsenal all there points in the final game of the season at Carrow Road. With fourth place secure, Arsenal knew that all they had to do today was get through the game with no injuries…


Arsenal Jack Norwich around

Picture the scene, it’s a year or two ago. Arsenal are playing at home against a struggling Norwich side after just returning from an international break and the score is 2-1. It’s tense and Norwich are on top but Arsenal have somehow managed to get themselves in front. What happens…


Hughton laments loss to Arsenal [video]

Norwich manager Chris Hughton laments losing 4-1 to Arsenal at the Emirates in the Premier League but had some nice words about the Arsenal goals.


Arsenal v Norwich – all the goals [video]

Arsenal returned to the top of the table with a 4-1 win over Norwich at the Emirates. Here are all the goals from today’s game. Apologies for the ad at the start of the video, nothing to do with me. It’s worth waiting though, there are some real beauties in…


Live blog – Arsenal v Norwich

I haven’t live blogged a match in quite some time and I’ve never done it using this software, so please bear with me as I get to grips with this.


Match preview – Arsenal v Norwich

After what feels like an eternity, proper football is finally back as Arsenal get ready to take on Norwich at the Emirates in the Premier League. With Santi Cazorla declared fit albeit not match-fit, there is collective drooling at the thought of finally seeing him lineup alongside Mesut Ozil in…


Arsenal 3 – Norwich City 1. Canaries knocked off their perch by linesman’s flag.

Highlights – HERE Another tight, tense and hard fought win, keeps Arsenal on track for Champion’s League qualification. Aiming for 16 seasons in a row in Europe’s premier competition, Arsenal moved up to third tonight with a little help from a referee’s assistant with selective eyesight. All the post match…


Arsenal In Charted Territory

It’s 7.40am as I begin this blog. A Saturday morning, beginning this early is somewhat uncharted territory for me. Jo and I are holding an engagement celebration this evening and, despite the fact that I spent Wednesday and Thursday in bed (and still have a bit of a cough), it…


How one week can change things – and why we shouldn’t let it

One week. Seven days. That’s how long it took for Arsenal to turn from an in-form team on course for a title challenge to an out-of-control train wreck careening into next season’s Channel 5 listings. Or at least that’s what the media – and a large portion of football fans,…

Arsenal resume charitable programme to boost struggling teams

In my blog yesterday morning I recounted a little tale. It was supposed to be a tale of old Arsenal because, well, we had a new Arsenal. One which didn’t offer up points to lowly teams because they had finally learned that matches are not won by simply turning up,…

West Ham United v Arsenal - Premier League

All hail Arsenal Day

It has finally arrived. Arsenal day. All across the Gooner nation people are awaking from their internationally-induced slumber with smiles on their faces as they think about watching the only team they actually care about. Of course, just to tease us a little bit more, we have to wait until…


Arsenal – simply not good enough

It was 90 minutes which was to define our season instead, what we got was a microcosm of the entire season, flying start, unforgiveable complacency, terrible defending, flashes of brilliance, RvP pulling us up by the bootstraps, and naivety of the highest order.  The first 45 minutes was among the…


Arsenal FC: They play when they want

This is going to be a quick one; because I am in over my head with random stuff (non-football, less important, but sadly necessary. Final exams, barrage of fire and brimstone, you get the drift) and also because masochism is a trait I do not dabble in. Trying to write…

Finally, An Answer.

Two games. TWO. GAMES. Against Norwich and West Brom. Norwich, who have won one game in six, and West Brom, who will be booking their holidays now that Roy Hodgson is upping sticks and is heading off to drink from the poisoned chalice that is the England job. If, after…


Arsenal play first of two cup finals

Morning all and an early kick off for us today in which I shall be watching the Arsenal match, the Irish Cup Final then the FA Cup Final, so, footballing Gods, Arsenal win, Linfield win, meteor. Thanks. I really don’t know what to say in this blog.  We know what…

900 for Arsene, must win for Arsenal

Morning all, had a bit of a lie in this morning so apologies that the blog is a bit later than usual.  You know you’re getting old when 9.30m constitutes a lie in eh? Tomorrow we see Arsenal face Norwich in what is not only a must win game but…


Van’s the man, but should Chamakhattack start against Dortmund?

As tradition goes, I never feel confident before a match against promoted opposition away from home. Arsenal, who naturally take up the mantle of Goliath in these clashes, have a tendency to trip up from a sly foot thrown forward by these Davids; and such matches have an even greater…



It’s always a colourful affair when Sky commentate on a game involving the World’s Most Hated Team and even more so when our opponent is a “minnow.” I say this with no disrespect to Norwich – of the teams in the Premier League, they are one of the few who…
