Some stepping up needed from Welbz and other rotated players

Match day for The Arsenal again and despite the fact it's the closest you could get to a dead rubber without actually being a dead rubber, I'm still excited to be going along to see The Arsenal play a game, having not seen one live in the flesh for nearly three weeks now. The opposition [...]

Appreciating many games and hoping for fresh faces tomorrow

Are we wearing red shorts, aren't we wearing red shorts? Does it really matter? This is the kind of news that you get as an Arsenal fan when everything else dries up because we haven't played for over a week and it occurs to me this morning that perhaps we are lucky, because with European [...]

More cash for Stan to use as leverage? Or for player acquisition?

Well the 'historic quadruple' is now over for Man City and after the 'Invincible' tag was taken away thanks to Liverpool in the Premier League, the world is waking up to the realisation that City are in fact, quite human after all. Let's not get too excited for Sunday yet though, eh folks? I mean [...]

We have our level – Europa League

By | 2018-02-19T08:21:18+00:00 February 19th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

Morning folks. It's Monday, we've had to sit through a weekend of not only Arsenal-free football, but divey Tottenham Football and although I won't dwell on Alli and his wobbly legs, what I will say is that when you fail to appropriately chastise people, to punish people who cheat, they will keep on doing what [...]

English footballers abroad

Slow Gooner news day, huh? I woke up this Sunday morn and did my usual flick through some of the news to see if anything was happening in the Arsenal world. There isn't. It's quiet. Too quiet. Too quiet because whilst I said yesterday that I was looking forward to a football-free weekend, it turns [...]

Job done in Sweden for Arsenal

Well I guess that went as well as can be expected. I mean you can't really grumble at a three-nil away victory rendering the next leg a would-be dead rubber, although with a the Arsenal I guess it's always got a caveat... But still, the job was done and on a surface which was false, [...]

Arsenal cannot underestimate the value of getting the job done tonight

Morning gooners and welcome to another match day, one in which we don't see much of for the next week, so I for one am doing my upmost to ensure that my excitement levels are heightened during my working day today. They may be a small provincial Swedish club that I hadn't have heard of [...]

Lacazette’s absence means ‘Dat Guy’ gets his wish

I'm looking real hard for when the good news will start coming at Arsenal, I've got to be honest with you, because yesterday's Lacazette news just feels like yet another sh*t sandwich being served up to us and told to chow down. Domestically - League Cup aside - this season has been a festering pustule [...]

Why are Arsenal so unprepared for games?

Morning all. I have to say this question has been ringing around in my head all weekend and as I wake up this morning to start a working week it still lingers. Why is it that, despite the fact we have so much preparation and rest time, our team can still look so lethargic in [...]

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]
