Interesting selection choices for Arsene at Sunderland

By |April 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

With Moneychester City smashing Stoke yesterday at the Etihad, it pretty much means that they have an additional point over us with their superior goal difference. So whilst a point today would take us level with them, we really should be aiming for all three, because I think we need a gap between us by [...]

No more home bankers against teams like West Brom

By |April 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Normally I'd be opening today's game with 'ahh matchday, that glorious of things' or something similarly positive, ahead of a midweek trip to the Emirates. But whilst I'm happy to be getting there once again, and whilst it means my day has something to look forward to come the end of it, there's part of [...]

Arsenal in full ‘meh’ mode

This is going to be a challenging blog to write today. Challenging in the sense that I suspect at times I'm going to come across as angry. As The Management often says to me though: I'm not angry. I'm just disappointed. So the challenge is conveying a person who is not angry. I really am [...]

Stifle the pace of Palace out wide & secure third, Arsenal

By |April 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Well wouldn't you know it, one minute you're an Arsenal fan thinking "season over, we won't win the league now", then the next minute Moneychester City have dispatched Chelski, Liverpool and City have a genuine chance of European league glory and suddenly the fourth place trophy doesn't even look like it might secure European football! [...]

The Arsenal rollercoaster goes on

By |March 21st, 2016|analogy, Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Being an Arsenal fan has always been a rollercoaster of emotion, but right now at this moment in time, it feels like we're going through some kind of extreme. After our victory against Everton on Saturday, Leicester followed it up by scraping by a pretty poor Palace side, whilst the Spuds swept away a Bournemouth [...]

Howdy there fellow Arsenal fan and welcome to Sunday, a day made infinitely more enjoyable as a result of Arsenal managing to dispatch Everton at Goodison Park yesterday.  Boy, doesn't it feel good to see The Arsenal play well, score goals and look like a team with purpose, eh? Marvellous stuff. All week I've been [...]

Mixed feelings, same worries in defence and attack

By |March 17th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield|0 Comments

The night after the inevitable occurred and I know this phrase is used a lot, but I genuinely have the most mixed of feelings about the game as a whole, so much so that I don't know whether I'm deflated or slightly pleased. Let's put this into context: we were never in a bazillion years [...]

A cagey game against Watford, where patience will be key

Yesterday's defeat of Chelski at the hands of Everton adds some more gloss to the possbility of winning the FA Cup and with United and West Ham due to play after we have lined up against Watford, the world's oldest footballing knockout competition now carries added significance, going in to today's game at The Emirates.  [...]

Exploding hamstrings, succession planning and enjoying different flavours – some things for Arsene to consider

Happy Saturday to you super awesome people. hopefully it's one in which you can keep yourself busy, what with the whole 'no Arsenal' getting in the way n'all. For me it's one in which I've got half a day of some chores, then it's a bit of egg chasing observation with a couple of mates [...]

So here we are at the end of another working week and a weekend of FA Cup football ahead of us. Today is press conference day and whilst we got a bit of news as usual on injuries yesterday from Le Boss, he'll no doubt elaborate a little bit more this morning and give us an [...]
