Martin Keady - May 30, 2020

It is not difficult to select Arsenal’s greatest ever European triumph, because for all their domestic achievements (13 league titles and a record 13 FA Cup wins) the Gunners have only ever won two European trophies. That is a depressingly low number for one of the undoubted giants of the English game; indeed, it is […]

David Dein
Martin Keady - May 8, 2020

In one sense, David Dein does not belong on this list, as he was neither a manager nor a player, and yet it would be absurd to exclude him from any list of Arsenal’s greatest ever figures, such was his contribution to the Gunners. He was arguably the most important director or administrator in the […]

Martin Keady - Mar 20, 2020

Martin Keady - Nov 7, 2019

To coin a phrase, Arsenal’s next Premier League match away at Leicester City this Saturday is increasingly looking like “do or die” for Unai Emery. And unlike Boris Johnson, who did not manage to get Britain out of the EU on 31 October (despite his promise to do so), Emery may not get another chance […]

Martin Keady - Oct 25, 2019

It was impossible to tell who was the more relieved after Arsenal finally got a stoppage-time winner to defeat Vitoria in the Europa League. Was it Nicolas Pepe, whose brace of brilliant free-kicks suggested that he could finally justify his £72 million price-tag? Or was it his manager, Unai Emery, who must have been fearing […]

Holding and Saliba
Martin Keady - Sep 14, 2019

The best news that Arsenal fans have had recently is that Rob Holding is now back in first-team training after the serious knee injury that he sustained against Manchester United last December. Holding may never quite live up to the “Burnley Cannavaro” nickname that Arsenal fans have already given him, but he is nevertheless a […]

Martin Keady - May 25, 2019

There is no exact opposite of “the gift that keeps on giving”. “The takeaway that keeps on taking” just does not have the same connotation of something that is so utterly useless that over time it just becomes ever more useless. But perhaps the closest that we can get is the 2019 Europa League Final […]

Martin Keady - Feb 2, 2019

The Arsenal defence against Cardiff City earlier this week was Stephan Lichtsteiner, Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal, and with injuries having ruled out all of Arsenal’s other defenders (either temporarily or for the long term) there is every chance that the same back four will take the field against Manchester City this weekend. […]

Noam Chomsky, the great American linguist and theorist, once said that if the average American’s understanding of the complex mathematics of baseball could only be applied to other areas of life, then America would be a nation of mathematicians. The same is true of football and the rest of the world; if the average football […]
