Arsène’s easyJet deal; Jenko a capable understudy

By |October 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

In classic Arsène and Arsenal style, I predicted a press conference yesterday, which inevitably led to there being none whatsoever. I have a history of shoddy predictions when it comes to Arsenal, which is why I don't bother making them on the blog usually, especially when it comes to games. I don't need that kind [...]

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 [...]

Bus parking – do we need to be worried at Arsenal?

By |October 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I was a little too worse for wear yesterday to blog, having consumed quite enough spiced rum on the Saturday evening, so I decided I'd wait until the inevitable affect effects had run their course and blog today on Saturday's game.  I suppose there's also an element of the match itself having been a bit [...]

Efficient Arsenal are fun to watch

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 [...]

A chance for Gibbs tomorrow?

Tuesday brings the second working week for me and my new working abode, but more importantly, it brings us a day closer to the match up against Ludogorets at home. I'm gutted for missing the Swansea game - despite the pain it put us all through at the end - but I'm glad that I [...]

A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

By |October 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, referees|0 Comments

Well lads and lasses, I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no idea what to make of yesterday's game. I don't know if I should be a little worried about the way in which we handed Swansea a few lifelines, or happy about the fact that at times we were breathtaking and ultimately [...]

Hector and Theo symbiosis is key

By |October 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, internationals, Tactics|2 Comments

I must say that this season, Theo Walcott has done a bang up job in proving some of his doubters thus far, hasn't he? He's improved his overall game, is looking the player we should have seen six years ago and when you read stories like this you can only be pleased that we have a [...]

Another couple for Big Per?

By |October 5th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, contracts, Defence|2 Comments

Yesterday I did a piece on how important I thought it was that Santi was given a few more years at Arsenal, given his impact on the team, and the result was pretty much universal for all Gooner's that they wanted him to stay and the club should do what's needed.  I don't know if [...]

Arsenal purring; momentum building with Basel win

By |September 29th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield|3 Comments

I am happy. I am happy because this Arsenal does 'The Football', rather well at the moment, doesn't it? It's lovely to see the team popping the ball around with such consummate ease. Alright, the opposition weren't exactly Barcelona last night, but "can only beat what's in front of you" etc, etc, yada-yada-yada... It all [...]

Özil’s megabucks deal; Basel pre match thoughts 

By |September 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield|0 Comments

There are two major discussion points for me today and thankfully, neither of them involve Sam Allardyce! Firstly, the news filtering from a German Journo Henning Feindt, that Mesut Özil has signed a new deal and will wear the number 10 shirt. The journo in question wasn't exactly explicit on when Özil will occupy the [...]
