We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

By |February 27th, 2017|analogy, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|3 Comments

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

Don’t expect this weekend, but hope for a utopian end of season for Arsenal

Not a lot going on for us today, eh folks? I mean sure, i'll be you're filling your day with all manner of interesting things, but i'd be surprised if they are Arsenal-related thing, what with us not playing until Saturday evening against Liverpool. Me? I'm going to see if you really can get a [...]

Ditch your hierarchies, Arsène

Do you know what's strange? In life, my family and particularly The Management, often comment about how easy going I am sometimes. I'm quite happy to let a lot of things - not everything, but a lot - just pass me by without too much stress. I'm quite positive about life in general.  Arsenal is [...]

King Santi might be dead, long live the next king?

Woke up this morning like: "Yep, still in the Arsenal interlull" Man, for a team that regularly winds me up and has me vowing to put less emotional investment in them, they sure do manage to rope me back in with alarming regularity. I suppose that's a good thing: it shows the fondness I have [...]

Just enough Arsenal

Apologies if I can't draw myself up to be too irate about the overall performance yesterday, but if I'm honest with you, all we needed was the win and that's what we got in the end. So now isn't the time to go all football purist and be outraged that we didn't smash Sutton 6-0 [...]

Don’t Wrexham our chances up, Arsenal

By |February 20th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

Did some family stuff this weekend, so whilst I managed to catch a little bit of football and did a little bit of reading, it was fairly minimal, knowing that our game was this evening. I didn't even realise that the draw had already taken place as I drove home with The Management last night. [...]

Jovial Arsène sounding out an exit strategy

Well now, that was an interesting press conference yesterday, wasn't it? I've got to be honest, I didn't think there'd be much of note to come out of the presser yesterday and I wondered if Arsène would be tetchy and downbeat, but he seemed rather jovial given the performance of his team in midweek. There [...]

Take Eek over Apathy with new Arsenal manager

By |February 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, History, press conference, soccer|0 Comments

Morning. I've woken up to a feeling that I thought I wouldn't get for at least another couple of days. I'm over the Bayern defeat already.  Perhaps it's because I always knew we weren't good enough. Perhaps it's because I vented my spleen on my blog yesterday. Perhaps I'm just so bored with Arsenal I [...]

Mes, Mo and Arsenal not sh*tting the bed

By |February 14th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, midfield|0 Comments

With just over 24 hours to go until our annual trip to Bayern, there are a few bits and bobs filtering out from both sides, and a press conference sure to take place in Bavaria at some stage today.  It'd be great if the press asked the manager the question: "it's all a bit boring [...]

Ox/Xhaka – the missing puzzle pieces?

By |February 13th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Tactics|2 Comments

I'm intrigued. I'm intrigued to know what Wenger is going to do in the middle of our midfield for Bayern away this week. The reason I am intrigued is because I think he has what he perceives as a 'safe' option which will deliver what he knows, or the 'gamble' option, which will be a [...]
