Theo replicating club for country, whilst Johnny-come-lately has the press fawning

By |October 10th, 2015|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Internationals|1 Comment

I Actually managed to sit through a whole 90 minutes of an England game last night, made all the more impressive by the fact that it was a dead rubber and only one Arsenal player was starting: Theo.

Thankfully it was worth tuning in, just so that Theo could show Harry Kane what clinical finishing looks […]

Walcott ends Rooney’s England career? Arsenal karma?

By |October 8th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, Internationals|2 Comments

Yesterday evening I wrote a bit of a flippant tweet that a year ago nobody would have expected Theo Walcott to be on the verge of ending Wayne Rooney’s England career, but having heard from the man himself in the afternoon at the England training camp, I do wonder if he’s got that outcome in […]

My football bubble, the Arsenal players’ football bubble

By |October 1st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

The pain of the woeful Tuesday display still remains, but it’s become a little bit more of a dull ache than a stabbing feeling in my gut, such is the speed in which football is coming at us with the games we’ve got midweek and then at the weekend.

Almost inevitably, some of the players have […]

Effervescent Alexis secures Arsenal the points

By |September 27th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday’s highlights, I don’t exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday’s performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game.

I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well as […]

Chelski preview: hair of the dog

By |September 19th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|2 Comments

The one good thing about playing on a Wednesday night followed by a Saturday, I suppose, is that it does give you an opportunity to wash the nasty taste out of your mouth after a stinging defeat. Of course, much like ‘hair of the dog’ works wonders, if we lose again against Chelski today, it […]

Complacency costs careless Arsenal

In yesterday’s blog I spoke about how the start of the Champions League proper yesterday evening felt like the start of the new season, full of hope and expectation, with all of the positivity that comes with it. So isn’t it just the most ‘Arsenal’ thing to do to go and repeat the same mistakes […]

Stoke review: Sometimes you can’t win, even when you do

By |September 13th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do, you’re never going to win, are you? 

Yesterday I witnessed an Arsenal team absolutely dismantle Stoke City, yet when the Match of the Day team had their attempt at ‘analysis’, it seemed like they were giving a little more of a dig than praise for the performance. The fact […]

Important cogs and maintaining confidence after disappointing individual performances

By |September 8th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals|1 Comment

Although I didn’t bother to watch any of the international games on yesterday, I have had a quick look at which of the games included key Arsenal players and, after a quick glance online, it appears everybody is safe. For now.

By all accounts, Mesut Ozil sounds like he had an effective game for Germany in […]

Welbeck's injury sets us back a season; we need the league marsupial removed

By |September 7th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals|0 Comments

In the post-international boredom haze that we’re currently wading through, there’s nothing like a boot in the proverbial balls by the England manager, stating that Danny Welbeck will probably be out for around six months. I’m pretty sure Arsene and some people at the club will have rolled their eyes on that one. The England […]

Walcott vs Ramsey; End product vs work rate – sacrifices needed?

By |September 6th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, premier league|0 Comments

Yesterday some Arsenal players were in action for England and, whilst I’m pleased that Theo got off the mark and the Ox chipped in (almost literally) with an assist, I didn’t bother watching the game and it’s difficult to read too much in to it. After all, I don’t want to watch a pointless thrashing […]
