What difference does Arsenal’s league position make?

By |May 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

I don't seem to recall there being as much build up to the last game at Highbury, as there was yesterday, when West Ham bottled United off the pitch and United bottled it on it. And yes, i know  that there's probably a billion othe people who have used that one, but I don't regret [...]

My Arsenal myopia is not agenda driven

By |May 4th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, premier league, Rant|2 Comments

Is it symptomatic of modern day Arsenal, that the club are currently running a story about the fact the goal against Norwich, involved a passage of sustained possession which led to Welbeck's good finish? I get that it's lovely to see that sort of action when it comes off, but on a day where media [...]

Permutations. Damn those permutations

By |April 13th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, Rant|3 Comments

Yesterday I spent a bit of time on the blog talking about the fact that I'm not sure that there's much to play for this season. I speculated that we might see a little bit of experimentation as we have little to play for. But as Moneychester City glided past PSG to reach the Champions [...]

Mixed feelings, same worries in defence and attack

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 [...]

Barcelona game not a ‘bonus’

By |March 16th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|0 Comments

When I usually write my pre match thoughts in the morning ahead of a game, I usually try to find some kind of hope in what lies ahead, regardless of the opposition. Or at least I think I do. I try to analyse how we are going to beat our opponent and what needs to [...]

Crisis talks to ensure there is no ‘glorious failure’ for Arsenal

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 [...]

Take the risk with Walcott or Welbz?

By |February 28th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

An away trip to Old Trafford for The Arsenal today to a ground in which, quite frankly, we've been woeful at for about a decade. It really is quite staggering that our last win was ten years ago, where an Adebayor goal secured a 1-0 score line. Since then it's pretty much be exclusive disappointment, [...]

A couple of Arsenal brain-farts end the tie; now focus must shift domestically

In many ways I am your archetypal football fan, in that I'll wax exceedingly lyrical over my team when they win, yet when they are defeated I often find myself chastising the players and the manager for their performance. But today I find myself ill at ease, because I've got both emotions to show from [...]
