Why are Arsenal so unprepared for games?

Morning all. I have to say this question has been ringing around in my head all weekend and as I wake up this morning to start a working week it still lingers. Why is it that, despite the fact we have so much preparation and rest time, our team can still look so lethargic in [...]

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]

My best Arsenal XI – any surprises?

Morning all, hope you are grand and dandy and you have woken up to a Thursday in which great things can happen? Alternatively it could just be a regular run-of-the-mill Thursday in which you get to the end of your day and wonder what you have actually achieved. Life, eh? Arsène will do his press [...]

Arsenal’s rampant new attacking era? Everton match review

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's match from the first minute to the last. I generally hate evening kick offs on a Saturday because they pretty much ruin any chance of going out in the evening for me given travel home, etc, but if we played like that every week then i'd happily accept any time to [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle.

Last gasp deliciousness for Arsenal at Burnley

By | 2017-11-27T10:26:00+00:00 November 27th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]

Arsenal need the all-important first goal against Burnley

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 [...]
