Last gasp deliciousness for Arsenal at Burnley

Is there anything quite like a last-gasp winner in a football match? Is there anything as delicious as knowing your team has scored with so little time for the opposition to respond, that even though your club specialises in brain farts from time-to-time, you know there will be no way back for the opponent? If [...]

Moaning y'all and welcome to Sunday match day, a day in which we once again travel away to a tough ground to try to pick up three points against an in form team, in the shape of Burnley. This'll be a tough one today. Burnley are an established Premier League side under Dyche but more [...]

Reversal of fortune for Arsenal tomorrow?

Happy Saturday y'all. Hope you're coping without The Arsenal? Me - I'm going to go and watch Justice League with The Management and then follow it up by having myself a Chiquitoes, the most exciting part of which is definitely the Admiral Old J they have in stock in my local restaurant. Football takes a [...]

The fun of midweek Arsenal – Red Star preview

It’s another European exertion for the fringe players tonight, as ‘Arsenal Midweek Select XI’ take on Red Star Belgrade at The Emirates and as I’ve said before, I’m coming around to this midweek football, mainly because it doesn’t seem to have the same tenseness that I get around the Premier League games. Also known as [...]

Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Lesser of two Arsenal evils?

Hello hello hello, hope you're well? Anything to talk about today that's Arsenal related? No? Oh well, bye then! Of course I'm kidding! You think NewsNow wouldn't have my a** on a plate if they let me get away with blogs that short? I remember after one of the many utterly abysmal Arsenal performances once, [...]

Chubby Sanchez, defensive Özil and prolific Welbeck

I decided to take yesterday off from blogging, on account of a half marathon on Sunday, finished off by a booze evening thereafter. Shall we say that I was a little 'groggy' the next morning so I fancied a lie in. Of course from an Arsenal perspective little happened, unless you count the stories of [...]

More fun at The Emirates – because of the high press

I don't know about you folks, but I thorough;y enjoyed watching yesterday's game against Bournemouth, pretty much from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, I was nervous and much like the crowd and its hushed tones up until the second goal went in I was feeling like we could easily eff it all up, [...]

Arsenal and Arsène are insulting us all

I can't hold back this morning. What happened yesterday at Anfield was nothing short of a disgrace. It was symptomatic of Arsenal football club under this tired and dated manager who mollycoddles and placates a collective of underperforming premadonnas who do not deserve to put on the Arsenal shirt. Yesterday was the culmination of a [...]

The curious (and sad) case of Lucas Perez

It's the curious case of Lucas Perez that I want to talk about today, because it's an unusual one from an Arsenal perspective, particularly when it comes to Wenger. What's jogged me into focusing on our wantaway Spaniard is the supposed comments he's made to the club about being unhappy and wanting to go back [...]
