During a recent Dad’s Jukebox post – we reached 1989 yesterday, by the way, so listen to the soundtrack of the Champions – I thought of this Not the Nine O’Clock News sketch: Rowan and Griff are Alexis and his agent toying with Arsenal, aren’t they? Money…
Burnley at the Emirates, Bellerin and Not The Nine O'Clock News. Not often you get those three in the same post, eh?

Sol Campbell strikes me as a man floundering to find his way in his way in life. This morning, he claims he wants to return to football, to complete his “unfinished business” with the game. Having taken his UEFA badges through the Welsh FA course – the…
Sol Campbell, football manager for hire. Remember Jon Stark? Not Ned Stark, Jon, the original Stark... Can he cut the mustard & can Santi do similar?

Never let it be said that the FA isn’t quick to act. The prospect of retrospective action over diving is welcome and struck a chord watching a Robert Pires ‘legend’ special last night. When I think back to the hounding he got for the ‘poor balance’ he…
So late in the day, a new piece arrives with barely a whiff of regret over the lateness. Arsenal? Yes, they get a mention, so does Olivier Giroud

Photos adorn the back pages this morning of Diego Costa training on his own with a set of dummies – no, not the Terry family – for company at Cobham. With Dmitri Payet ordered to issue an apology to West Ham fans, the media is grateful for the distraction…
Unsettled players will shape the fights for the title & survival. No-one can question Alexis' commitment to the season but his future remains up in the air

Swansea City 0 – 4 Arsenal Arsenal climbed back into the top four with an emphatic win at Swansea yesterday. The victory came without breaking too much sweat as the team barely got into third gear. Star of the show was Alex Iwobi, who built on a…
Alex Iwobi drove Arsenal to victory at Swansea yesterday. We look at a 4 - 0 win that flattered the struggling Welsh club with the ref also meriting praise.

The only group more capable of self-delusion than supporters are club owners. Nottingham Forest is a good example over the past five years, but this season, Swansea City ran them a close second. Appointing Bob Bradley was a punt, no more no less, and a…
Swansea City are hoping for the 'new manager' effect to take three points. Arsenal hope the old one can have the same impact and re-ignite the season.

1989. 26th May. It was a huge moment, and like the Sex Pistols Free Trade Hall gigs, more than 200,000 attended. Given Arsenal’s habit of overstating the attendance of matches, did Liverpool get into trouble for a gargantuan understatement? News that…

Arsène cut to the chase yesterday with the team news for Sunday. Bellerin, Coquelin and Gibbs are all fit, Giroud as well, but not Theo, no. They’ve looked everywhere for him, under sofas, in cupboards but the little scamp is proving pretty damned good at…
Arsene's team news for Burnley, Per is Inspector Gadget and why China isn't a threat to Arsenal at the moment.

When he left Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson achieved what he set out to do in his last season: win the title. He pulled together a squad to do that task, with little apparent thought for the future. Proven winners, the players, arrived at Old…
When Old Red Nose left Old Trafford, the squad was in a state of disrepair. If this is to be Arsène Wenger's last season, are we in any better shape?

That went better than expected, I suppose. Liverpool dropped points, so to United and as for City. The headlines tell me that Pep looked on from the blue corner and chucked in the towel. After a 4 – 0 defeat, it’s not hard to see why. Twenty-four hours…

Mickey Flanagan delivered a priceless monologue on Mock the Week some years ago, about fashion. There’s a line about “you always go back to Marks'” which stayed in my mind. Not because I have returned to that well-known high street retailer for fashion,…

Apparently, it was too soon to crack Graham Taylor jokes, even gentle ribbing, so I’ll pat that into the back pocket and keep it safe for another day. Instead, the order of the day is the signing of contract extensions by three of Arsenal’s French…
Three new deals for our French trio & Arsenal's contracts team need a lie down before tackling Mesut & Alexis, with a small tribute to Graham Taylor
