Preview: Manchester City vs Arsenal

By Randy Osae It’s more fiery than a desert’s volcano. That is the current state of Arsenal’s ambiance – if that’s not an exaggeration. But it’s very much a factor that since Aston Villa’s dumping, Arsenal have been home to theatrical chaos – all off the pitch. The trauma of a quenching season, Waloctt’s inclusion […]

Fuming Gallas on red-line with boss…who’s at fault?

By Randy Osae One name was very informal in Wednesday’s media talks – Gallas, that was. Arsenal’s skipper is now reportedly on the verge of facing scrutiny from Arsene Wenger and club officials about the possession of the captain’s armband after carelessly lifting the lid on the currently worsening turmoil at Arsenal’s ranks.

Eduardo in training for first time since February

By Randy Osae It had been a long absence –  which many expected to end very far from now. But on Wednesday afternoon, Eduardo da Silva made an emotional return to training and pretty much announced his incredible return to football after that brutal wound he suffered at Birmingham over nine months ago. He reportedly […]

Brace hero dedicates show to Wrighty

By Randy Osae If Theo Walcott is Thierry Henry, then Jay Simpson is the legendary Ian Wright. Arsenal’s 19-year-old prodigy – who still has his name untouched in record books for the only hat-trick scored at the Emirates Stadium (for the reserves) – further foiled his glimpses of star quality with another remarkable pair of […]
