Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

The Arsenal purge begins

By | 2018-05-12T08:45:15+00:00 May 12th, 2018|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners|3 Comments

Flipping heck, I'm sure we were all expecting a bit of change at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger had moved on, but did any of us expect the type of noises that came out yesterday re: some of the coaching staff, to be so swift and decisive? It was like Arsenal's very own version of Night [...]

Wrapping Arsenal players in wool, but not too much, because we want to see them

As we all wait with baited breath on the injury to Mkhitaryan, my mind has already started to shift to tomorrow's game against Southampton and wonder what happens if our Armenian has suffered the suspected medial ligament damage that Arsene spoke about immediately after the game on Thursday night, then it really will be a race [...]

Lacazette needs to be bedded in tomorrow

Having had a week off in the Highlands, chilling, ignoring that football is a thing (other than the occasional - and I do mean occasional - glance at my Twitter feed) I thought i'd pen some thoughts with some renewed vigour and excitement that this latest international break is done, dusted and can be consigned [...]

Penalties, points and clean sheets: who are you and what have you done with Arsenal?

Where to evening start this morning. Arsenal won a football match. Again. Arsenal scored three goals. Arsenal kept a clean sheet. Petr Cech saved a flipping pelanty. It was almost as if Arsenal realised that they aren't one of the worst teams in the division, that they can actually put teams away (eventually), that they [...]

Where to evening behind this morning. Arsenal won a football match. Again. Arsenal scored three goals. Arsenal kept a clean sheet. Petr Cech saved a flipping pelanty.

Howdy Gooners, y'all alreet? How arte you feeling on a footballess Saturday? Bored? Finding out that there are other things in life? Enjoying the freedom that the complete failure against Forest in the third round of the FA Cup brings? Obviously I want Arsenal to win every competition and i'd much prefer we had  shot [...]

Lacazette’s absence means ‘Dat Guy’ gets his wish

I'm looking real hard for when the good news will start coming at Arsenal, I've got to be honest with you, because yesterday's Lacazette news just feels like yet another sh*t sandwich being served up to us and told to chow down. Domestically - League Cup aside - this season has been a festering pustule [...]

‘Be careful what you wish for’ Arsenal

Some thoughts on why the phrase ‘be careful what you wish for’ no longer applies to Arsenal fans who want Arsène to stay. It’s time for change and I’m not afraid of it any more.

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]
