Comfortable evening for Arsenal with positive rotation 

By |October 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review|0 Comments

I managed to squeeze my way in to the ground yesterday for the League Cup game against Reading, but only after I'd queued to get a paper ticket printed (the one minute it took to print the ticket set me back a cool additional 'admin' charge - I'd love to earn that kind of money [...]

I can enjoy The Arsenal tonight – they still have to win though

I think I've said this before, but I do like going to the League Cup games, because to me they represent an Arsenal match with less pressure and worry than a usual league game. Or FA Cup game. Or Champions League match. It's an opportunity to see a few of the rotated players in action [...]

Bus parking – do we need to be worried at Arsenal?

By |October 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I was a little too worse for wear yesterday to blog, having consumed quite enough spiced rum on the Saturday evening, so I decided I'd wait until the inevitable affect effects had run their course and blog today on Saturday's game.  I suppose there's also an element of the match itself having been a bit [...]

No free kicks and plenty of swagger can finish Boro today

By |October 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

So, here's the thing: It's match day. I can't go because I have to go to a wedding. And it's a Spurs fan who is getting married. This is the sort of heresy that one wouldn't normally share with a fellow Gooner as yourself, so let me tumble down the rabbit hole a little further, [...]

Is Arsène doing it right with subs?

By |October 21st, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

It's press conference day today and with Arsenal having dispatched Ludogorets with relative ease on Wednesday night, I suspect Arsène will be in buoyant mood and the press pack will probably go a little easier than they would normally, asking team news questions and wondering whether this team can go all the way this time.  [...]

Efficient Arsenal are fun to watch

We were well rubbish yesterday, weren't we? I mean, we played a team who were so overawed by the occasion, they tried to camouflage themselves with the pitch by wearing green. I can't believe we only scored six goals yesterday... What a result. Six goals, a hat trick for Mesut, a team that is positively [...]

I think rotation is key tonight, but does Arsène?

By |October 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Match Preview|0 Comments

This is my match day day that is sandwiched in between two match day days that I cannot take part. The first was Swansea at the weekend, the second is Middlesbrough on Saturday, so I feel like I'm appreciating going to tonight's game even more than I usually do.  It's Ludogorets in the Champions League [...]

A chance for Gibbs tomorrow?

By |October 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, press conference|1 Comment

Tuesday brings the second working week for me and my new working abode, but more importantly, it brings us a day closer to the match up against Ludogorets at home. I'm gutted for missing the Swansea game - despite the pain it put us all through at the end - but I'm glad that I [...]

Only The Ox can save the Ox

By |October 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|2 Comments

Today I start a new job, with renewed vigour and hope for a whole new working world, which means more opportunities and a chance to impress a whole new set of people. I wonder if The Ox is taking similar measures though, after he appeared on Sky Sports yesterday and admitted he might be getting [...]

A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

Well lads and lasses, I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no idea what to make of yesterday's game. I don't know if I should be a little worried about the way in which we handed Swansea a few lifelines, or happy about the fact that at times we were breathtaking and ultimately [...]
