Is Arsène doing it right with subs?

By |October 21st, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

It's press conference day today and with Arsenal having dispatched Ludogorets with relative ease on Wednesday night, I suspect Arsène will be in buoyant mood and the press pack will probably go a little easier than they would normally, asking team news questions and wondering whether this team can go all the way this time.  [...]

Another couple for Big Per?

By |October 5th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, contracts, Defence|2 Comments

Yesterday I did a piece on how important I thought it was that Santi was given a few more years at Arsenal, given his impact on the team, and the result was pretty much universal for all Gooner's that they wanted him to stay and the club should do what's needed.  I don't know if [...]

Nobodies looking at Arsenal – i like it

By |September 29th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Isn't life grand at the moment? I mean, we're playing well, scoring goals, winning football matches and the team are properly showing up. I'm excited at the moment, I have to tell you. But shall I tell you what I'm most happy about? Whisper it as I say this.....Nobody is talking about us. It's weird [...]

Arsenal are getting their swagger back

By |September 25th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Morning! Isn't it a rather splendid one today, eh? A rather happy, joyous and delightful Sunday is to be had for all Arsenal fans, methinks. That's what you get from an absolutely barnstorming performance by the team against a side with whom we've had some real problems in seasons past. I must admit, I didn't [...]

Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

Lucas’ background adds a different dimension; Mustafi/Kos needs to click quick

By |September 15th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence|9 Comments

Far be it for me to actively encourage a little bit of schadenfreude on a Thursday morn, but I couldn't help but chuckle at the Spuds result yesterday against Monaco, as they were sucker-punched in to a 2-1 defeat at 'home'. Perhaps it was because of some of the mitigating factors that I experienced on my commute [...]

Bendtner returns! Flamini returns! Wenger goes for Howe?

By |September 7th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league|2 Comments

I thought it was just me going a little mad, what with all of this warmth and sun I'm getting on the Algarve, but it appears the world is going a little bonkers this morning too. Let's start with the news that Niklas Bendtner is on the verge of signing for Nottingham Forest. Eh??? The [...]

Flamster, Glorie and Lucas Perez’s WhatsApp group

By |September 3rd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, friendly, Internationals|0 Comments

I wake up on this fine Saturday morning in Portugal, to the news that none other than the Flamster himself, might be making a return to the Premier League in the shape of joining Crystal Palace on a free. Fair play to the guy I suppose, because he's still looking for a club and if [...]

Debuchy, Gnabry and other musings post window closing

In Portugal at the moment, so yesterday was spent travelling to a place of sunnier climes than my normal London base. Wrote this yesterday and am only now getting the chance to post today, but I still think a lot of what I said is relevant, hence re-posting now. Catch y'all tomorrow with another round [...]

Team balance and dynamic good for Watford win

I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to writing this blog today. Having spent a large part of the summer in the transfer doldrums, then seeing our start to the season completely disrupted by injuries and the failure to adequately prepare for the season openers, the tone of my writing hasn't been [...]
