Confidence restoration; Ox injury saves a selection decision

By |March 13th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, FA Cup, Formation, gooners, Gunners, injuries, midfield|0 Comments

Had a bit of a heavy Saturday this weekend after the Lincoln game, which effectively wrote off my Sunday and even the ability to stare down a computer screen to compile some thoughts, so I thought I'd leave it and put something together on Monday. And here we are. We already know three out of [...]

Welcome respite? Will the board listen? Will Arsène?

Hey friends, how are you doing this Friday, eh? Looking forward to the FA Cup this weekend. Can I tell you something? I am. I really am. You know how commentators often mention that 'this could be a welcome distraction from the league' when talking about teams fighting relegation but still in the cup? Well [...]

A weary Arsenal fans blog

By |March 5th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant|9 Comments

What can be said this morning that hasn't already been said repeatedly of late? I almost don't want to bother writing today's blog. The analysis will sound alarmingly familiar and my tone will be as weary as an Arsenal fan could feel this morning. I'm tired of this. I'm tired of seeing this Arsenal team [...]

Sell Alexis?

By |March 1st, 2017|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, Tactics|2 Comments

Following my blog yesterday about how Arsenal haven't really adopted the counter attack properly in years, I thought I'd offer a somewhat controversial opinion as a solution, which I've been thinking about following the stories emerging about Alexis wanting to head back to Spain. Firstly, why he'd want to go back to a country who [...]

Ditch your hierarchies, Arsène

By |February 24th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Do you know what's strange? In life, my family and particularly The Management, often comment about how easy going I am sometimes. I'm quite happy to let a lot of things - not everything, but a lot - just pass me by without too much stress. I'm quite positive about life in general.  Arsenal is [...]

Lucas Perez: play him, Arsène.

By |January 12th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners|2 Comments

Do you know what I think I'll do today? I think I'll talk a little bit about Lucas Perez. I was going to do something about Big Per and his contract extension and who gets shunted out the door out of all of our centre halves this summer, but I feel like I haven't dedicated [...]

That numbing feeling of a missed opportunity for Arsenal

By |January 5th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Having seen the score of the Totts against the Chavs game last night, I find myself this morning in a similar position to that of yesterday morning, after we were all licking our wounds post the Bournemouth game. On the one hand this is good for us; it means the gap between us an top [...]

Find the mental formula, Arsene.

By |December 15th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, premier league|0 Comments

As expected, literally none of the 'smaller' teams playing against those in the top six were able to cause an upset yesterday evening, which pretty much makes this latest round of matches this midweek as a disaster for us in terms of how the table unfolded. But it's a disaster the isn't one from which [...]

Hector’s return an early wish, but Özil/Alexis’ contract?

By |December 9th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Good ol' Arsène and his Thursday press conferences. They make compiling my thoughts so much easier, especially when there's a Saturday game, because it means I can talk about what he said at the presser on the Thursday, then focus on being apprehensive about the game on the Saturday. Sunday then becomes a true day [...]
