Poor Jacky; will a formation change alter summer plans?

By |April 19th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Poor old Jacky Wilshere, eh? If reports are to be believed he's gone and smashed his legs to pieces again, which leaves him absent for the final run in, returning to Arsenal early and probably even more up in the air about his future. Timing wise it's an absolute stinker. He has 12 months left [...]

Floating debris season, so transfer guff is becoming interesting

I want to say 'no real favours done for us again' on yesterday's results, but the reality is that we didn't really have an team around us to be too concerned with right now. City are disappearing off in to the difference, the scummy lot round the corner have already gone, whilst Liverpool and United [...]

Mesut saying all the right things

By |April 9th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, premier league|0 Comments

I think I said this in a recent blog, or certainly in one of my Twitter 'moments', but it feels like we've been playing catch up on football games an awful lot since Christmas. We've had these games in hand due to the FA Cup, so that has meant we're behind on points as well [...]

Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

By |March 30th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, History, Internationals, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

By |March 27th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, History, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]

A week off from Arsenal just the ticket

By |March 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, History, Internationals|2 Comments

Happy Saturday folks. It's a Saturday in which London is bathed in a bit of sun today, so I intend on making the most of it, probably by staying in and watching TV or by going swimming in the indoor pool in Uxbridge. Yep, that's the British way, dontcha know. The Arsenal Way has essentially [...]

Arsenal engage ‘PR transfer war chest’ mode

By |March 22nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

Arsène has apparently jetted off to France to 'consider his future', if you believe the noises by the gutter press, from yesterday. Apparently he wants to see if fans will tolerate another two years, so is assessing the gauge of sentiment, I read somewhere. I do love a bit of media revisionism you know. When [...]

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 [...]

Acceptance of Arsenal and they’re failings

By |February 7th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics, Transfers|0 Comments

Ok, I'm out of phase one: anger, and having successfully navigated phase two: depression. Today, in terms of Arsenal, I've hit 'acceptance'. I am accepting of where we are as a club and what we have. It's a much nicer place to be in terms of my blood pressure, that's for sure. With 'acceptance' comes [...]

The low-key contracts blog

Yesterday we found out our fate in the next round of the FA Cup and as the The Totts got their second bye in a row at home to Wymcombe, and Chelski got their usual opportunity to rest players by playing Brentford at home, we have an away trip to Southampton or Norwich. So essentially [...]
