Happy new year from The Short Fuse!

Hi there! I feel like we should do one of those “best of the year” type posts since the year just ended, but, well, it didn’t happen. So here’s what is happening - I’m going to take this space to wish you and yours, wherever you are, a very happy New Year and hope that 2018 is either as good to you as 2017 was or a much better year for you than 2017 was (delete as appropriate to your circumstances).

On behalf of all the staff here, I would like to thank you all for reading and for sticking around through what has been another turbulent and frustrating year for Arsenal on the pitch - I know that, for all its success overall, it’s not easy to follow this team at times, and I’m glad that when you do you choose to come here to follow them.

Have fun tonight if that’s your thing, and here’s to 2018 being a year of positive change in the wonderful world of Arsenal. We probably won’t be around much tomorrow, but normal service will resume Tuesday morning, and we’ll head into the year as optimistic as always, hoping as always that Arsenal repay our optimism.
