Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

By |September 24th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, History, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

An unholy alliance before the most unholy of teams comes to the Emirates

Happy Friday one and all and it's a day closer to the old Saturday showdown against the most horrific excuse for a football team tomorrow, those racists from Chelsea, oh what a joy. More on the unspeakable evil that will descend upon North London when the team, management and detestable fans visit The Emirates tomorrow. [...]

Reading draw kind; let’s all appreciate Arsène’s legacy today

By |September 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, League Cup|0 Comments

Last night's League Cup games passed off without too much incident, with United, City and those Tiny Totts progressing, to set up a series of mouthwatering reserve games between most of the bigger clubs left in the competition. Except us. We've got Reading at home, which you'd expect us to win and if the tickets [...]

Brilliant display of dominant Arsenal

By |September 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review, midfield|2 Comments

It's really enjoyable writing a blog after almost everything has gone right in the game on the previous day. I love it. I get to praise, 'big up', congratulate and back-slap. All more preferable than the usual written form of grimacing that comes after a really poor performance. So today, I am a happy Gooner, [...]

Experience shouldn’t beget complacency against Forest

By |September 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

It's a late one from me today, and probably a short one too, for I am not a well man. With about two hours worth of sleep, punctuated the whole time by needing to head to the loo, I feel like a bit of a shell of a person, so I may have to call [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

Bizarre selection decisions rectified against PSG – just

How about last night's action for an eventful evening of European football, eh? Where do we even start??? How about pre-game, when the surprise, shock and outrage of Le Boss' team selection left some spiralling into a pit of their own melancholy, whilst others were left simply scratching their heads. After all, the line up [...]

I want my Arsenal squad rotation cake and eat it

Back in Blighty, back on my usual commute to work, but thankfully, also back in to the swing of all things Arsenal and there'll be no time to waste before we're off again, with the small matter of French Champions Paris Saint Germain to contend with. I'd imagine that there will be a presser at [...]

Arsenal’s destination better than journey against Saints

By |September 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

Sometimes the arrival at a destination is more important than the journey. Which is what football feels like sometimes and yesterday was one of those times, as we laboured terribly to a victory over an organised Southampton team who remained disciplined in their shape. Yesterday's game was like a really crappy journey to a holiday [...]
