Lucas is a tourist and Arsenal are a conker

Morning fellow Gooners. How are you feeling? Are you still reeling from the failure of the league campaign? Or are you like me, in this weird limbo in which you're not quite sure right now, given the circumstances?  Yes the league campaign was pretty shoddy and yes, the manager and players can and should be [...]

The stupidity of Kos

I didn't go to the game yesterday, on account of other prior arrangements and if I'm honest, there was part of me that was quite glad about that fact. Glad because whenever I go along to The Arsenal I do get a lot more emotionally invested than when I stay away from football and so [...]

Prepare the development squad

It was probably always going to be too much to ask for West Ham to put on the same display as they did against the Totts and dispatch Liverpool yesterday. West Ham hate that lot almost as much as us so of course they were going to give it a little more than their last [...]

Fitness question marks ahead of Mordor

Oddly, it doesn't look as though there's a press conference happening today and I think I read somewhere that the press conference was the one that took place immediately after the Wednesday game at Southampton. It'll be slightly odd to do it that way but given that the team will have travelled back on Wednesday [...]

In the darkest hours, a ray of light from the Totts

Morning. I have a stinking cold which has kept me up half the night and really has been quite vexing. But despite that, logging in to my social media profiles and looking back over the failure of a Totts team to beat a West Ham side who were on the beach, looked like they were [...]

The most difficult NLD ever?

Went to bed early last night and as a result, didn't catch the final whistle of the United game, but as I'm sure you'll tell me that's no real loss because by the sounds of it, it was a drab affair. Imagine that? A Mourinho team going away from home and shutting up shop for [...]

3-5-2 has different paths for Hector and Giroud

There's no time to savour the result from the weekend as Arsenal already have one of the remaining league games left tomorrow evening against a reinvigorated Craig Shakespeare. So it's an Arsène Wenger pre match presser today and that means we'll get an update as to whether he'll stick or twist on the starting XI, [...]

Battle and bottle back for The Arsenal

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:02+00:00 April 24th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Defence, FA Cup, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|0 Comments

This season the players have - rightly in my opinion - been chastised for some of their performance and at times the perceived lack of effort they deliver for Arsenal football club. We've seen too many under par performances and that has led to widespread condemnation. So it only seems fair that this morning that [...]

Season defining game at Wembley

I'm sure I'm not alone in breathing a collective sigh of relief at what happened yesterday at Wembley. The fact that everyone has been speculating in the media on a possible Tottenham match towards a double has left a horrible taste in the mouth and a churning of the stomach. So when the final whistle [...]
