Arsenal-Sunderland Observed

The Observer again asked Salut! Sunderland to sum up the game and Pete Sixsmith was ready and able to build on his seven-word Sixer’s Sevens verdict (“Seen worse, but the slide goes on”). Let’s start, though, with a Gunner’s view: Louise Cowburn, Observer reader: It was quite a good match especially after the other night, […]

Soapbox: Arsenal here we come (be afraid)

Earlier in the season, it seemed we could pick up points against the top teams while underperforming against the rest. Now we just underperform against everyone. Or can we snatch victory – even in the shape of a draw – from the jaws of much predicted defeat at the Emirates tomorrow? Pete Sixsmith prepares for […]

Remembered: Arsenal (P Danson as 12th man) 2 Sunderland 0

It started as a harmless gag on the Blackcats list. E-mails from the list’s subscribers – located in various corners of the world – have been suffering delay or gone missing or arrived out of sequence .. you name the problem and the list has had it. On the west coast of America, an exiled […]

Good news, bad news ahead of the Emirates

West Ham’s pay cut saga: the way forward for us too?

David Sullivan’s warning that everyone at West Ham, the club he now co-owns, faced a 25 per cent pay cut did no harm to the players’ mood, the Hammers dismissing Birmingham City with a minimum of fuss to put more pressure on us at the bottom of the Premier. As our own aversion to winning […]
