Arsene’s margins are fine re: contract; players WILL come in during the summer

By |May 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well then, what shall we talk about today, then? Maybe what Arsene said during his presser yesterday? Oh, alright then. Team news is that Mesut is back and after looking like he was going to smash Henry's record, he still needs two more assists just to equal it. It's not been from the want of [...]

Action needed after Welbeck news

By |May 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

Poor old Danny Welbeck. From regularly available, fully fit Man United player, to crocked and barely on the pitch Arsenal player. It seems the injury curse of wearing the cannon on your shirt has struck again.  Nine months. Jeez. I'm sure you're feeling as deflated as I am, but that will be nowhere near as [...]

Walcott and Welbz: a tale of two rumours

By |May 10th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, injuries, Transfers|0 Comments

The two bits of big news coming out from tomorrow appear to be at right ends of the rumour spectrum. On one side we have a rumour which is related to transfer gossip and therefore probably more spurious than Dr Spurious of Spurious Town, with a PhD in Spuriology, whilst on the other side we [...]

Let’s re-instate mobility to the forward three against Norwich

By |April 30th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

At present I find myself typing today's blog from a hotel room in Dubai. It means I won't get to the game today, but I will be watching it from a Sports Bar round the corner. Why is any of this significant? Well, I've been to Dubai before just once, in May 2012. I missed [...]

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

By |April 18th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

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 [...]

We won a game!

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 [...]
