Somewhere there’s an online calculator you’ll need

I spent ages last night working on a thing. Nothing to do with Arsenal, but a thing all the same. I had to do some projections in terms of numbers of stuff and all that, which I realise doesn’t make it any more clear, but I did all the numbers

Alexis ready to fire again : Gabriel and Mertesacker compete

Morning. I slept it out, dreaming I was writing an assignment about playing in the Champions League, but strangely the games took place in an indoor ballroom and the referee handed me an unpublished copy of his crime fiction novel just before kick-off and told me he’d be kinder to

Bournemouth 0-2 Arsenal: Quick-fire goals win points as Flamini gets lucky

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video In recent games it’d be fair to say we haven’t had a lot of luck. Per Mertesacker’s red card, shots off the line, keepers making ridiculous stops, things haven’t gone 100% our way. Yesterday, I think we got a

Arsenal back down over ticket surcharge : Emotional Rosicky won’t give up

Morning all. A quick Saturday round-up for you, and we have to start with Arsenal’s decision to back down over the surcharge for the Barcelona game. They released a statement last night to say that, having listened to the fans, the charge would not be applied … this time. They

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

We shall briefly touch upon the affliction known as Total Impotence Torture Syndrome, or ‘T.I.T.S.’ Arsenal have been suffering from various strains of T.I.T.S. for some time now. We first contracted the disorder in the middle of January, with precisely no goals against the Staffordshire Cave Dwellers. T.I.T.S. got slightly

Keep on Roquelin in the free world

Partnerships are a crucial part of the nucleus of a successful football team. There is good reason that Petit and Vieira, or Bergkamp and Henry are spoken of in reverential couplets. Arsenal’s legendary back five is probably the greatest working example of the importance of chemistry. Individually, Dixon, Winterburn, Bould,

“Step right up Ladies and Gentlemen, don’t be afraid. We got goals. That’s right. If it’s goals you want, we got ’em. “Short goals. Tall goals. Fat goals. Thin goals. Goals that’d make a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window. That’s right. All the goals you need,

Tactics Column: Arsenal miss chances and fail to build effectively

If the signing of Petr Cech was supposedly be worth an extra 10-15 points come the end of the season, then it might be worth applying the equivalent logic to the other end of the pitch. That might be harsh on Olivier Giroud, who has shown the character to make
