North London derby
Martin Keady - May 9, 2022

Arsenal are not exactly charging into the top four. Their narrow 2-1 win over a ten-man Leeds United side that is fighting relegation was hardly conclusive proof that they are ready to take the next step and secure their position in the Premier League’s top four. Nevertheless, the victory sends them four points clear of […]

It wasn’t Anfield ‘89, which was a once-in-an-eternity performance and result. Nevertheless, Arsenal’s performance in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final was one of the Gunners’ finest displays at Liverpool’s ground since that historic night, especially after they went down to 10 men after less than half an hour when Granit Xhaka (whose […]

The Ghanaian midfielder had long been sought after by Mikel Arteta and he finally joined the Gunners for what was by some distance the […]

Henry Clark - Oct 8, 2020

Over the past decade or so, Arsenal fans have wondered to themselves on several occasions whether this was all just a bad dream. FA and League cups were not what this club had become used to. They were winners, in the elite category of English football not just after the ‘Invincible’ season but through their […]

White Hart Lane
Martin Keady - Jul 11, 2020

This weekend’s North London Derby has every chance of being the least important encounter between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in history.
