Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

By | 2017-10-17T07:45:41+00:00 October 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

By | 2017-10-16T08:07:14+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]

Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Morning folks. Lots of juicy Arsenal stuff to talk about today, so let's get right down to it, starting from where I left off yesterday which was that Arsène confirmed what Özil's agent said which was that talks were going well. of course we'd hardly expect the manager to say "it's a faaaaaacking shambles actually. We [...]

The reality behind Chambers & Özil contract situation

By | 2017-10-12T07:23:09+00:00 October 12th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Morning all and welcome to a brand new Thursday. It's a Thursday in which contracts are the hot topic and top of the agenda and that's not least because of the tale of two contract undertones that sit behind the two big stories emanating from yesterday: Calum Chambers has signed a new deal Özil' agent [...]

Mesut, Jack and the cancer that is Stan Kroenke

Howdy folks. It's another Arsenaless Saturday in the Premier League which means more of the usual having to watch other teams play football before we get our chance. Sure, it means you can do other things with your Saturday, but it just doesn't feel right not seeing that much Arsenal on the first of the [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

Predicting Arsenal’s line up against Borisov – your guess as good as mine

By | 2017-09-28T07:36:04+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

It's a trip to Belarus this evening for Arsène Wenger and his charges, as Arsenal line up against BATE Borisov and I think it's fair to say that with all the will in the world, this isn't a game in which we should be seeing too many players who will play on Sunday at noon. [...]

Howdy folks. Whatcha been up to this weekend? You certainly haven't been filling it with Arsenal delight because we're the Monday night crew which, whilst cool because it starts your working week off with some football, is also a little ducky because it means you have to sit through every other team.  And what we [...]
