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

By |March 17th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield|0 Comments

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?

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 [...]

Barcelona: It’s a freebie, guys

By |February 23rd, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|3 Comments

I'm excited for today's game, I can tell you, and not just because the team are testing themselves against arguably the best club side in the world. Nope, I'm also exciting because as far as I'm concerned, this game and the one at the Nou Camp in a couple of weeks' time are 'freebies' in [...]

Wishing congestion on others and trying to enjoy the spectacle of tomorrow

What a start to a week. Post Hull I lost my wallet (complete with two Arsenal season tickets in) and spent the best part of yesterday evening searching for it to no avail. Then I head to the tube line this morning with an emergency Pay As You Go Oyster card (The Management's) only to [...]

Champions League malaise isn’t enough to keep me from Premier League excitement 

By |December 15th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

This season is crazier than Will Ferrell, hepped up on goofballs, riding a unicycle the wrong way down a one-way street. Everything is weird and no more so can it be signified than the game I watched yesterday in which the current Champions lumbered their way around the pitch against a team who were relegation [...]
