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 [...]

An Alexis compromise reached, as rotation takes effect in Sydney

It's Saturday morning, about thirty minutes before kick off in Australia for the second pre season game of the season, and I'm blogging. Have you ever done something that you know will be redundant the second you've finished it? That's me right about now. It's like vacuuming your house and steaming the wooden floors before [...]

‘Catalyst for change’ or ‘Apathy for the same’?

I wouldn't worry too much about finding any more info here. I got nothing if I'm honest with you. I'm running out of steam with Arsenal and I'd almost forgotten what it felt like to have to stare at so much of the footballing abyss.  It's amazing really. About three months ago I couldn't wait [...]

Ollie G needs big name competition for his place

How about Ollie G and that goal last night, eh? I don't usually bother with international football, but given that one match was distilled in to two brilliant moments for Arsenal fans - a great strike from our centre forward and a total howler from the Spurs keeper, I was happy to see my Twitter timeline filled [...]

Arsenal’s formation evolution

All Arsenal-related eyes today will be firmly fixed on that board meeting in which the manager's future will be discussed and the decision as to whether he stays or goes will finally be absolute. Lord knows we've all been waiting long enough to find out, but whilst speculation, hearsay and conjecture have all been the [...]
