Want a national team you can be proud of, why not Back British Basketball?

Sam Neter and Sillky Alroy Slim are two men on a miision. A mission with a simple brief – to get people to Back British Basketball. With London 2012 on the horizon you’d be forgiven for thinking the public needed little encouragement to get behind Team GB, but then most people are unaware that they … Continue reading

Ramsey signs new long term deal.

Welsh international midfielder Aaron Ramsey has pledged his long term future to the Gunners by signing a new contract today. Details are thin on the ground right now, but Ramsey cited Arsenal’s style of play as one of the key reasons for the decision, “”Every player wants to play in a team where they can … Continue reading

Happy St. Michael Thomas day.

Part of me resents those who were at Anfield on the 26th May 1989. As a 20 year old I even resent any Arsenal fans that were even alive to witness it. At the same time though, reading the stories and memories of that day give me that wonderful feeling that only the Arsenal can … Continue reading

Hello Chamakh; adios Merida.

And so it begins. Arsenal’s transfer dealings have officially begun this week, with the arrival of Marouane Chamakh and depature of Fran Merida. Whilst both have been coming for a long, long, time, the former does at least represent Wenger’s awareness of the squad’s weaknesses. I believe that, with the same set of players that … Continue reading

“What an end to the half for Arsenal!”

I read a piece on the brilliant arsenalinsider.com today on Fabregas having earned the right to return to his home-town club this summer. Ignoring the argument about whether or not Cesc owes Arsenal anything, it got me thinking about what the diminutive Spaniard will leave in North London. Though the 23 year old has only … Continue reading

Life after Cesc.

OK, so he hasn’t officially left yet, but the sooner we all face facts the better. We’ve survived the departure of talismanic captains in the past,  and there’s no reason why we can’t do the same again. All signs seem to point towards a tedious drawn out transfer saga a la Arshavin 2009, but with … Continue reading

So I guess this is farewell.

Some things in sport are as inevitable as night following day.  No Grand Prix is complete without Martin Brundle brilliantly interrupting Tanja Bauer on his grid-walk. You can be almost as sure of a British fighter being let down by their wrestling in the world of mixed martial arts. When it comes to football, and more … Continue reading

We’ll have it if you don’t want it.

Even at the height of our powers in 2005 every trophy, nay every victory, felt as satisfying as the last. Maybe the subsequent five barren years have contorted matters somewhat, but I seem to remember celebrating the Vieira’s winning penalty against United with as much (if not more) vigour than Sylvain Wiltord’s double clinching goal … Continue reading

The rumour mill is turning.

What? It could happen. Ok, it’ll never happen With fans already suffering post-season depression after Sunday’s campaign closer against Fulham, Sol Campbell has handed them genuine reason for cheer by pledging himself to the club for a further two seasons. The veteran centre back was widely considered as our best player in the final months … Continue reading

Wenger promises 2 or 3 new signings, but is it enough?

In the wake of last Mondays defeat at Blackburn, a new poll was added to the official Arsenal website to the effect of the headline above. A majority of 87% believe that Arsene Wenger needs more than just three new faces to reinvigorate his side and to prepare them for a fresh onslaught on the … Continue reading
