Sweet Caroline My Arsenal The Changing Crowd
The playing of Sweet Caroline at the Emirates, and the near insurrection (according to an hysterical and hypocritical press) at West Ham, and the increase in the apathy of Football crowds reminds me of a US book on the subject. The book is broad based, but bear with me it does have relevance to modern sport and especially football.
Arsenal Break Club Record at Leicester Player Ratings
Really exciting, open, end to end game with a lot of chances. Unfortunately we aren't great, particularly defensively, and allowed Leicester to score some pretty cheap goals We currently have an identical away record to relegated West Brom. Only team in Europe's top five leagues and England's top four leagues not to win an away point in 2018. At the domestic level Jamie Vardy's second-half penalty was the 50th goal conceded by the Gunners in league play and have conceded more goals in 2017-18 than any other season in the club's Premier League history.
Arsenal Famous Five Player Ratings As Burnley Sporting Fans
I could write a lot about Arsene's last game ever at the Emirates, but most of it has been said, even if some of it is completely inaccurate. For example the Independent credited Arsene with the Remember Who You Are slogan, but then many Arsenal fans credit it to David Rocastle. In fact it was Bertie Mee who started it, but when legend becomes fact then print the legend.
Wenger Legacy Shambolic End Player Ratings Chambers MotM
Poor defending, and toothless attackers, with meandering midfielders saw Wenger lose his 250th game in Europe, and any hope of a European trophy die. The only top manager not to have won an European Trophy, even GG has one, well two if you include playing days. Sadly for AW his legacy will be a conference centre with adjacent football pitch, but not a big cup. Once again Costa mugged an Arsenal defence, oh for a player like him. I am told they are offering £1400 for a ticket for Sunday's game for the final farewell. Either those offering it are mad, or I am for not taking it. Hopefully someone will play The Last Post.

Mavropanos MotM Ratings v Man U
I think most of us expected another 8-2 after we saw the teams but that could've been a lot, lot worse. We almost came away with a point against a much better side, and the youngsters who came in didn't look out of place. Really dead game though.
Europe semi final means only one thing Player Ratings
Yes it was that time again, lots of flags, crowd geared up and then a defender falls on their bum and it all goes down the toilet. It wasn't exactly deja vu, the last time it happened at the beginning of the match, this time at the end. The past weighs like a nightmare on the minds of the living, and its the hope that kills you, I would write more but I've just fallen off my chair. So without further ado the ratings:
They Didn't Come to Bury Wenger
The happy crowd had not come to bury Wenger, the intention was to praise him, it was a sunny day at The Arsene Wenger Stadium, recently renamed by Paul Merson. There was a holiday atmosphere, and it was the first time in ages that I had to queue to get in via the bag check line.
Arsenal sleep walk to sixth Player Ratings
I think its fairly obvious that nobody at the club gave a toss about this match. That was reflected in the line up and the performance. The defence really let us down today. No Ramsey and Ozil, no party.
Welbeck Makes It Ten Player Ratings
Should've been a routine second leg performance against a poor CSKA side, but we didn't get going and invited CSKA into the game, but finally started playing for the last half an hour and managed to seal our passage to the semi-finals.
Welbeck MotM v Saints Player Ratings
When a spirited Southampton side fighting relegation and featuring Shane Long, and a complacent and heavily rotated Arsenal side came head-to-head, it was always going to be an open game.
