Chosen few witness Arsenal hammering

I can be one of the few that said they actually bothered turning up last night for the dead rubber against BATE last night but, unlike my picture above suggests, that's where the only disappointment of the night exists. The stadium was probably even less than half full and whilst that will no doubt be [...]

More fun at The Emirates – because of the high press

I don't know about you folks, but I thorough;y enjoyed watching yesterday's game against Bournemouth, pretty much from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, I was nervous and much like the crowd and its hushed tones up until the second goal went in I was feeling like we could easily eff it all up, [...]

Are this Arsenal team fighting for the manager? Bournemouth preview

It feels like a lot has happened since the last matchday. Maybe it's just me but it feels like Arsenal have gone through a lot and here we are at the other side and today, it is time the players delivered, because anything else but a win would feel like we're really in trouble. We've [...]

Arsenal and Arsène are insulting us all

I can't hold back this morning. What happened yesterday at Anfield was nothing short of a disgrace. It was symptomatic of Arsenal football club under this tired and dated manager who mollycoddles and placates a collective of underperforming premadonnas who do not deserve to put on the Arsenal shirt. Yesterday was the culmination of a [...]

Anfield isn’t fun for Arsenal, today won’t be either, I suspect

Today's game against Liverpool isn't exactly one in which we go in to on good form, nor is it a place that we historically - 89 aside - enjoy going to, particularly in recent history. So personally I'm not too confident that we'll be coming away from Anfield with three points tucked safely under our [...]

Baffling selection decisions =Arsenal Groundhog Day at Stoke

So we're two games in to the new season and already the hope and sporations of a new season appear to be in the sh*thouse, after a performance that seemed vintage Arsenal 2011 - 2016. Once again it was Stoke, once again we fell apart defensively, once again there are questions about the manager's decisions, [...]

An Alexis compromise reached, as rotation takes effect in Sydney

It's Saturday morning, about thirty minutes before kick off in Australia for the second pre season game of the season, and I'm blogging. Have you ever done something that you know will be redundant the second you've finished it? That's me right about now. It's like vacuuming your house and steaming the wooden floors before [...]

What does Wenger have to do?

As I made my usual walk towards Uxbridge tube station this morning I started to think about Arsène and how much he has fallen from the pedestal that I put him on in my mind. I started to think about how a man who I once hoped could manage us forever, is now a guy [...]

Arsenal’s formation evolution

All Arsenal-related eyes today will be firmly fixed on that board meeting in which the manager's future will be discussed and the decision as to whether he stays or goes will finally be absolute. Lord knows we've all been waiting long enough to find out, but whilst speculation, hearsay and conjecture have all been the [...]
