I think rotation is key tonight, but does Arsène?

By |October 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Match Preview|0 Comments

This is my match day day that is sandwiched in between two match day days that I cannot take part. The first was Swansea at the weekend, the second is Middlesbrough on Saturday, so I feel like I'm appreciating going to tonight's game even more than I usually do.  It's Ludogorets in the Champions League [...]

Arsene saves us all with an early presser

By |October 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Gunners, Internationals, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A Thursday morning press conference before a Saturday 3pm game? It's almost as if Arsene was as bored with the international break, so decided to drop a line to the press team to bring forward the presser by his normal Friday morning job, just so he could put this dreaded period behind him snd save [...]

Santi’s words to youngsters could be given to Arsène

We're nearly there folks. The interlull is nearly behind us and I don't know why, but this one has felt waaaaaay longer than the last few. It's like we're being punished for finally seeing an Arsenal side click - Burnley aside - after about a year and a half.  The reality is probably more to [...]

Arsenal finances are all financy, Arsene’s coy on England, but not on Theo

By |October 1st, 2016|Arsene Wenger, finances, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Happy Saturday to you my friend. It's an Arsenal free Saturday for us, which means you're probably doing all manner of interesting things. Me? I'm cleaning my house, taking things to the dump and finally going to the next town over to work out why a Building Society i've never transacted with, keeps sending me [...]

Theo and stats go hand in hand, Arsène for England doesn’t

By |September 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, press conference|0 Comments

Last night I found out that Mexican restaurant chain Chiquito's sold Admiral Old J's spiced rum and, well, I feel a little blurry-eyed this morning. Thursday's the new Friday and all that.  Except it's not Friday. It's still very much Thursday and that's a shame, because Friday is in fact better than Thursday because for many [...]

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 [...]

Reading draw kind; let’s all appreciate Arsène’s legacy today

By |September 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, League Cup|0 Comments

Last night's League Cup games passed off without too much incident, with United, City and those Tiny Totts progressing, to set up a series of mouthwatering reserve games between most of the bigger clubs left in the competition. Except us. We've got Reading at home, which you'd expect us to win and if the tickets [...]

Has anybody told Arsene?

By |September 16th, 2016|Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Tactics|2 Comments

It's press conference day today, which means hopefully we'll get some answers to questions that have bemused us over the last week, like: What has Xhaka done to you? What is the nature of your relationship with Francis Coquelin? Do you know where Debuchy is? Can you you go the entire press conference without using [...]

Bizarre selection decisions rectified against PSG – just

How about last night's action for an eventful evening of European football, eh? Where do we even start??? How about pre-game, when the surprise, shock and outrage of Le Boss' team selection left some spiralling into a pit of their own melancholy, whilst others were left simply scratching their heads. After all, the line up [...]

I want my Arsenal squad rotation cake and eat it

Back in Blighty, back on my usual commute to work, but thankfully, also back in to the swing of all things Arsenal and there'll be no time to waste before we're off again, with the small matter of French Champions Paris Saint Germain to contend with. I'd imagine that there will be a presser at [...]
