Arsenal vs Dortmund - Match Preview - Champions League 26.11.14
When Arsène Wenger faced the media yesterday he seemed bullish in his optimism and demeanor. For some factions of fans, seeing this after the defeat to Manchester United is just another example of the manager not having "learned his lesson". Objectively though, if you look at the United match in isolation it was one of those matches where Arsenal performed better than their opposition but were punished by the unholy triumvirate that seems to dog Arsenal season after season - wayward finishing, poor officiating and opposition counter attacking.
In case you missed it, I made my glorious debut in the Official Arsenal Magazine recently. Not that I like to mention it of course. The subject of my article? Whether a winter break could be implemented successfully on these shores.
Match Review: Arsenal 1 Manchester United 2 - Premier League - 22.11.14
Often talk of a crisis and the sight of broken cannons in the newspapers can been laughed off and dismissed as media hyperbole.

Having amassed just seventeen points from twelve games, we find ourselves out of the title race and already well off the pace in the fight for Champions League qualification.
