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! [...]

What does the rest of the season mean for you?

By |April 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Tactics|4 Comments

Genuine question there that I'd love to get some comments on from anybody tuning in today. We've had the Champions League come and go (which to be honest most of us must have thought that would happen anyway after the draw), we've seen a chance for FA Cup glory melt away after a lacklustre home [...]

Watford: The surgical precision of Ozil is needed today

By |April 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So here we find ourselves, at the beginning of April, with all but the tiniest glimmer of hope that a Premier League title challenge remains. Were it to be City and Chelski duking it out at the top of the division, we'd all be looking at what reinforcements Arsenal need to make after another disappointing [...]

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 [...]

A cagey game against Watford, where patience will be key

By |March 13th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday's defeat of Chelski at the hands of Everton adds some more gloss to the possbility of winning the FA Cup and with United and West Ham due to play after we have lined up against Watford, the world's oldest footballing knockout competition now carries added significance, going in to today's game at The Emirates.  [...]

Exploding hamstrings, succession planning and enjoying different flavours – some things for Arsene to consider

Happy Saturday to you super awesome people. hopefully it's one in which you can keep yourself busy, what with the whole 'no Arsenal' getting in the way n'all. For me it's one in which I've got half a day of some chores, then it's a bit of egg chasing observation with a couple of mates [...]

League title hopes fading after derby draw, but at least pride has been restored

By |March 6th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

When Harry Kane thundered that second Spurs goal in after Mertesacker had dallied in the corner, I had pretty much given up all hope of us getting anything from the North London Derby (NLD), let alone worrying about t he league title. We have all seen this Arsenal team fail to show the required mettle [...]
