Arsenal purring; momentum building with Basel win

By |September 29th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield|3 Comments

I am happy. I am happy because this Arsenal does 'The Football', rather well at the moment, doesn't it? It's lovely to see the team popping the ball around with such consummate ease. Alright, the opposition weren't exactly Barcelona last night, but "can only beat what's in front of you" etc, etc, yada-yada-yada... It all [...]

Özil’s megabucks deal; Basel pre match thoughts 

By |September 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield|0 Comments

There are two major discussion points for me today and thankfully, neither of them involve Sam Allardyce! Firstly, the news filtering from a German Journo Henning Feindt, that Mesut Özil has signed a new deal and will wear the number 10 shirt. The journo in question wasn't exactly explicit on when Özil will occupy the [...]

I’ll have a crack at England and Jenko can have a crack at Arsenal

Did a bit of scouting on our opponents for Sunday last night. Well, I say 'scouting', but actually I just sat on the sofa, ate fried chicken, whilst Burnley beat Watford. What I learnt was: Burnley have a decent dead ball taker in Steven Defour They like a headed goal Insightful stuff, I know, and [...]

How far can this Arsenal team go?

Ok, I'm going to call 'bloggers privilege' with this, because I've asked a question to which I have absolutely no idea on what the answer is, but it's a question I've been asking myself for the last 24 hours since our rout of Chelski on Saturday evening. The performance against that lot was so convincing, [...]

Arsenal are getting their swagger back

By |September 25th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Morning! Isn't it a rather splendid one today, eh? A rather happy, joyous and delightful Sunday is to be had for all Arsenal fans, methinks. That's what you get from an absolutely barnstorming performance by the team against a side with whom we've had some real problems in seasons past. I must admit, I didn't [...]

Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

An unholy alliance before the most unholy of teams comes to the Emirates

Happy Friday one and all and it's a day closer to the old Saturday showdown against the most horrific excuse for a football team tomorrow, those racists from Chelsea, oh what a joy. More on the unspeakable evil that will descend upon North London when the team, management and detestable fans visit The Emirates tomorrow. [...]

Reading draw kind; let’s all appreciate Arsène’s legacy today

By |September 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, League Cup|0 Comments

Last night's League Cup games passed off without too much incident, with United, City and those Tiny Totts progressing, to set up a series of mouthwatering reserve games between most of the bigger clubs left in the competition. Except us. We've got Reading at home, which you'd expect us to win and if the tickets [...]

Brilliant display of dominant Arsenal

By |September 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review, midfield|2 Comments

It's really enjoyable writing a blog after almost everything has gone right in the game on the previous day. I love it. I get to praise, 'big up', congratulate and back-slap. All more preferable than the usual written form of grimacing that comes after a really poor performance. So today, I am a happy Gooner, [...]
