May 25, 2015 By @frishee

It’s been a tough few weeks. There was that cup we were trying to get into but failed. Before I go into detail about that, I will tell you how dirty football is. The beautiful game is marred by corruption right from the grassroots. It seems that there is always an easy way out and

Training has been scanty but at least it is picking up. The lads are resuming training one after the other, albeit too slowly. I think it is about time I stopped blaming the weather and the mud for the poor attendances. I believe the reason for the poor attendance is winning and fear. We were

Arsenal v West Bromwich Albion Head to head: P134 W67 D31 L36     Last five meetings: W4 D1 L0 Fabian says: There’s something uncharacteristic about Arsenal’s rather barren form in front of goal but then again after the last impressive two months, it isn’t that out of place.

May 23, 2015 By Fabian Odhiambo

Now, I’m no fan of Olivier Giroud (and many things French, really) but don’t they say we have to be tolerant of divergent views? Vincent, a Gooner who loves among other things Giroud’s hair, takes his bow as TDO’s guest writer. Let me make it clear that I’m not for Giroud being replaced by some

If you have an internet connection and are active on Social media you will know what happened this weekend. You don’t even need to be a fan. It was a long weekend, a good way to start the month despite the dull and cold May weather. There was more in store: Chelsea were on the

Well, the weather hasn’t been friendly which means that there has been little for me to do in terms of training. The mud is horrible and it is widely believed that the rain causes flu and sore throats (I blame viruses and bacteria myself but what do I know?). The problem with soccer in the
