My football bubble, the Arsenal players’ football bubble

By |October 1st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

The pain of the woeful Tuesday display still remains, but it’s become a little bit more of a dull ache than a stabbing feeling in my gut, such is the speed in which football is coming at us with the games we’ve got midweek and then at the weekend.

Almost inevitably, some of the players have […]

The benefits of a confident squad – not just first XI

By |September 28th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, injuries, press conference|0 Comments

There’s no time for basking in victory right now, the games are coming thick and fast and tomorrow night the team will look to make it three wins in a row by trying to overcome Olympiakos.

I must say I do love it when Arsenal play so often, but it doesn’t leave you much room for […]

Effervescent Alexis secures Arsenal the points

By |September 27th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday’s highlights, I don’t exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday’s performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game.

I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well as […]

How do Arsenal unwrap the ‘surprise package’ Leicester?

I really hope the team are riding high today after Wednesday’s North London Derby victory. Today is the last of our back-to-back-to-back-to-back away games and a win today feels like it could be really splendid, don’t you know. 

A win today means we go into the midweek game on another high and then if we can […]

Arsenal heroes can be found in the unlikeliest of places

With Arsène yet to even announce any kind of team news for tomorrow (as I type – first thing Friday morning), I feel like a pilot flying through thick, soupy fog without any of my instruments to guide the way. There’s a very good chance this blog will crash in to some sort of opinionated […]

Fantastic Flamini finish foils Spurs

I feel I owe you an apology. I said yesterday that the game last night didn’t really mean as much as a league game and that I was pleased that I didn’t have the same nervous rumblings in my stomach that I usually got.

I lied. 

In my defence, I think I lied to myself as well, […]

League Cup gets a shrug, but does a North London Derby?

By |September 23rd, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Formation, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

Quick aside from today’s match preview blog: The FA seeing fit to accept the mistakes of their officials, whilst rightfully banning a clear cheat? Has some sort of sense been seen at The Association’s HQ? Or was it just some sort of glitch in the Matrix? Whatever it was, justice has been done and we’ve […]

Parasites and injustice – Arsenal’s week so far

By |September 22nd, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, Rant|0 Comments

It seems like this week has been dubbed National ‘sh*t on Arsenal fans from a great height’ Week, after the couple of bits of news that emerged yesterday and this morning.

Firstly, the FA, who have seen fit to charge Gabriel with improper conduct for not leaving the field of play quickly enough on Saturday. Honestly, […]

Chelski game defined on two minutes of cheating, silliness and ref ineptitude

By |September 20th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It’s very difficult to make a proper assessment on the teams performances after yesterday’s defeat, what with the clear injustice that transpired at Stamford Bridge n’all, pretty much ending the contest before the halftime whistle had even been blown.

Perhaps we have Gabriel to thank for that, but in truth, he was merely the ‘patsy’ who […]

Chelski preview: hair of the dog

By |September 19th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|2 Comments

The one good thing about playing on a Wednesday night followed by a Saturday, I suppose, is that it does give you an opportunity to wash the nasty taste out of your mouth after a stinging defeat. Of course, much like ‘hair of the dog’ works wonders, if we lose again against Chelski today, it […]
