Good morning, I’ll drop a blog a bit later, but me and my pal Alfred have been hammering away at recording a new podcast called The Arsenal Opinion.
Working out the kinks, but basically, we hope it comes across as an adult opinion that offers an interesting take on the week. Would love you to have a listen, ignore the bad editing, understand this is early doors and let us know how you’d like it to evolve.
Thanks for pushing me to do this, I hope you enjoy it.
P.S. Should filter into Google Play and Apple itunes over the next week. Subscribe if you see it. x
ALSO: If you are a really cool band and your record label will let you be the intro music, drop me a line, many people will listen. Everything Everything, Spandau Ballet (Mr Kemp) and Jamie T, I know you’re Gooners. GIMME SOME RIGHTS! x
WELL, WELL, WELL! Did I enjoy the weekend of football? Yes, yes I did.
January was set up as a month for us to catch up some of the lost ground in December and so far, it’s looking okay-ish. We picked up 3 points during a Super Sunday weekend when we weren’t part of the Super.
I had my doubts about Paul Clement heading over to work with Swansea, it felt like another decision based off the wrong checklist. The last one read, ‘is he American, we trust American’s who interview well’, this one read, ‘does he have a fancy resume with BIG teams.’
I think you need a steady head to bring a shit team out of a hole. Paul Clement set up his new side that hasn’t put in a hardworking performance in a year to press Arsenal like rabid dogs. It was like playing against a slightly shite Liverpool side. Very effective for the first 30minutes, but you could see where it was heading because you need a certain level of confidence to play that way and you need to have an incredible level of fitness to make it work.
