‘Small miracles’ and majestic Arsenal men

By |December 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Match Review|0 Comments

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Welly, welly, welly. Wellington. Wellington. Wellington. Didn't expect that from the last round of Champions League matches in our group, did we? No-siree we didn't. But we got what I think Arsène had described as a 'small miracle' and both the Arsenal team put out yesterday, as well as the Ludogorets team [...]

Awesome Alexis annihilates Hammers

By |December 4th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I've wanted us to give a team a pasting for such a long time. Other sides at the top of the table had been doing it, but we hadn't quite put anybody to the sword just yet domestically. November came and went and we had looked to have lost a little bit of the spark [...]

Arsenal rotated players do themselves no favours

By |December 1st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review|0 Comments

Yesterday evening I didn't get to watch the game as I was out with The Management doing other things; like enjoying myself. I think it's fair to say I've dodged a bullet on that one because by all accounts, it didn't make for fun viewing and had I spent some of my hard-earned cash to [...]

Patience against Bournemouth is key for Arsenal

By |November 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victories for Liverpool, City and Chelski yesterday mean that today's game against Bournemouth isn't one that we can really afford to be buggering up this afternoon. Yes, it was hilarious to see Spurs' dreams of going the season unbeaten go down the khazi, but when you look at the table this morning and see that [...]

PSG – Arsène can’t put the player puzzles together again

By |November 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Rant|1 Comment

Ok folks, we clearly have a wee bit of an issue now, because for something like the fourth game in a row I saw an Arsenal side who didn't really click at all. And it's starting to worry me.  Middlesbrough at home, Sunderland away for the most part (until we turned the after burners on [...]

Tactical insight from Arsène

By |November 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Monday's are rubbish. They're especially rubbish when you don't quite feel 100% and after a weekend of being slightly under the weather, I already feel a little worn down because of feeling a bit offish. Still, at least we don't have to wait long before we see The Arsenal again. It's a home game to [...]

Frustration and nerves- the North London Derby

By |November 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league|1 Comment

I told you I hated North London derbies. Yesterday was no exception. Worry before, nerves during, and in the case of yesterday's result it was disappointment after. The disappointment isn't because we completely outplayed a Tottenham team who don't concede many, but more that we didn't show our potential in a big game at home [...]

I can enjoy The Arsenal tonight – they still have to win though

By |October 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, League Cup|0 Comments

I think I've said this before, but I do like going to the League Cup games, because to me they represent an Arsenal match with less pressure and worry than a usual league game. Or FA Cup game. Or Champions League match. It's an opportunity to see a few of the rotated players in action [...]

Efficient Arsenal are fun to watch

By |October 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield|1 Comment

We were well rubbish yesterday, weren't we? I mean, we played a team who were so overawed by the occasion, they tried to camouflage themselves with the pitch by wearing green. I can't believe we only scored six goals yesterday... What a result. Six goals, a hat trick for Mesut, a team that is positively [...]

Only The Ox can save the Ox

By |October 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|2 Comments

Today I start a new job, with renewed vigour and hope for a whole new working world, which means more opportunities and a chance to impress a whole new set of people. I wonder if The Ox is taking similar measures though, after he appeared on Sky Sports yesterday and admitted he might be getting [...]
