An unknown quantity for Arsenal – both who will start for us and Preston themselves

By |January 7th, 2017|Arsenal, FA Cup, Match Preview, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

Howdy howdy folks, hope you're all gravy on a Saturday, looking forward to the good ol' FA Cup fixture tonight? I'm rather excited, I have to say, because Preston is a new ground for me and it's also the first away FA Cup tie i think I've been too. I can't really fully remember if [...]

New year, new stunner from Giroud

By |January 2nd, 2017|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Well. There's only one place to start today, isn't there? What. A. Goal. Take a bow Olivier Giroud, because you ain't scoring another one of those in your lifetime son, not in a competitive match environment anyway. It was majestic and although I couldn't be at the game to see it in person, the audible [...]

Arsenal’s irrational fixture lists and rotational pondering

By |December 29th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday evening The Management and I went out for an evening stroll in the crisp London air and after discussions about returning to work, I was given one of the greatest gifts one could get as a working man: an extra days leave. Well, I am seeing it as that, because I didn't realise that [...]

Returning player Christmas cheer; lazy journalism with ‘lazy’ Mesut tag

By |December 24th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

It's Christmas Eve, I've already begun The Fattening, and yesterday we had Arsene give an update on the latest team news ahead of West Brom at home on Boxing Day. And after a pretty stinky time of late, it appears there was a bit of Christmas cheer to be had from the press conference, in the [...]

Patience against Bournemouth is key for Arsenal

By |November 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victories for Liverpool, City and Chelski yesterday mean that today's game against Bournemouth isn't one that we can really afford to be buggering up this afternoon. Yes, it was hilarious to see Spurs' dreams of going the season unbeaten go down the khazi, but when you look at the table this morning and see that [...]

Incorrect team set up is spared blushes by Ollie G

By |November 20th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

What is it about Old Trafford? What is it about Jose Mourinho? Both seem to bring out the worst - performance-wise - in Arsène Wenger teams. Yesterday was a painful game to watch. It was 45 minutes of tedium followed by 45 minutes of under performance from Arsenal players, which was only spared by a [...]

Melodrama regarding our striker problems

By |November 14th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, internationals|0 Comments

So some football stuff happened this weekend, but nothing that would interest you remotely, so I might as well talk about how I love cheese. Right? That good for you?  Probably not. The successful delivery of my cauliflower cheese in my Sunday lunchtime roast is hardly the most riveting story in the world. Pretty much [...]

Arsenal are not under the radar any more

By |October 31st, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

I knew it wouldn't last you know. It simply couldn't. There was only so much time that could elapse before people started to realise. There was only so long that people would spend salivating and frothing at the mouth over the two Manchester clubs, before they started to pay attention to teams like ours. I [...]
