Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

By |September 24th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, History, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

Brilliant display of dominant Arsenal

By |September 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review, midfield|2 Comments

It's really enjoyable writing a blog after almost everything has gone right in the game on the previous day. I love it. I get to praise, 'big up', congratulate and back-slap. All more preferable than the usual written form of grimacing that comes after a really poor performance. So today, I am a happy Gooner, [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

I want my Arsenal squad rotation cake and eat it

Back in Blighty, back on my usual commute to work, but thankfully, also back in to the swing of all things Arsenal and there'll be no time to waste before we're off again, with the small matter of French Champions Paris Saint Germain to contend with. I'd imagine that there will be a presser at [...]

Arsenal’s destination better than journey against Saints

By |September 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

Sometimes the arrival at a destination is more important than the journey. Which is what football feels like sometimes and yesterday was one of those times, as we laboured terribly to a victory over an organised Southampton team who remained disciplined in their shape. Yesterday's game was like a really crappy journey to a holiday [...]

Decisions, decisions, decisions for Arsene’s team selection

By |September 10th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Ahh match day, that sweetest of things and whilst I can't make the game itself today because of my current location, I still feel the same levels of excitement when it comes around. Southampton at the Emirates for a 3pm kick off means I'll be watching from an Irish bar in the Algarve, with a [...]

Arsenal have options now

The signings of Mustafi and Perez were finally over the line yesterday and, as the sun began to set in the UK, both were pictured on the official site wearing the famous red and white of The Arsenal. It's feels good, doesn't it? It gives a buzz to the fans, but if you believe what [...]

Mes has a new friend; Theo’s motivation

By |August 29th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, internationals, premier league|0 Comments

Yo, how goes it, on this fine Monday? Well, it's fine in England because we have a bank holiday and in my part of the world the sun is shining. It's also shining in the world of Arsenal. We're still able to bask in the warming glow of three points and after the manager confirmed [...]

Team balance and dynamic good for Watford win

By |August 28th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to writing this blog today. Having spent a large part of the summer in the transfer doldrums, then seeing our start to the season completely disrupted by injuries and the failure to adequately prepare for the season openers, the tone of my writing hasn't been [...]
