Jesus is just alright

The end is in sight. Sunday was the first of 12 matches to close out Arsenal’s Premier League season. Many of us expected Fulham to be a sterner test, with The Cottagers sitting in 7th place. But the Gunners swept them aside handily, with goals from Gabriel, Martinelli, and Ødegaard, and new boy Trossard havingContinue reading “Jesus is just alright”

Do you believe in magic?

Unless you’ve been living under the proverbial rock, you know where you were when Reiss Nelson hit the stoppage time winner against Bournemouth last Saturday. Needless, to say, Maggie’s was pandemonium. The hard part will be coming back to earth. We have a Europa League match Thursday and then a run of very challenging matches,Continue reading “Do you believe in magic?”

Now we must have a proper rebound from defeat. This team must show our winning ways have not been a fluke. That we’re not slippingContinue reading “But we get up again”

Delightful win over Spurs this past Sunday! Unfortunately, our charity raffle was postponed as yours truly was ill and unable to attend. By all accounts, Maggie’s was a raucous good time! For everyone, except a solitary Tottenham supporter. Sunday, another stern test as Manchester United visits the Emirates. The Reds were responsible for Arsenal’s lastContinue reading “Utd, Raffle Redux Sunday!”
