Is the ‘change’ at Arsenal starting to happen?

By |May 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, gooners, Gunners, History|2 Comments

With the story of Mourinho still dominating the press pages (he would want it no other way), there is little else that the nationals are interested in, so they've put down their rainbow coloured invention pens, focusing on the North for now. I hope that it is the same for the rest of next season. [...]

‘Say nice things about Rosicky’ Week

By |May 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries|0 Comments

Has there ever been a more obvious potential 'Axis of Evil' than Jose Mourinho and Man United? A team who have had success for decades, who have also built up a cynical side and who's corporate juggernaut status and commercial emphasis, with the Jack the Ripper of modern day football?  So it seems that may [...]

The madness of money; will Arsène/Arsenal be stuck in 2010?

Yesterday I saw a Sky Sports News tweet about the youngster Reece Oxford, who made his Premier League debut against us, looked very good but who hasn't featured regularly since the start of the season. The tweet alluded to a rejection from the kid of a new contract from West Ham, no doubt designed to [...]

It ACTUALLY did happen again…

By |May 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

In this season of the bizarre and ridiculous, perhaps it was most fitting that on the final day an Arsenal team all had written off as quite poor, took one final step upwards in the league to leapfrog the Spuds by hammering Villa. In return, Newcastle decided to finally show up for their fans, giving [...]

Some fans find it too easy to scrap players

By |May 6th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

It's press conference day today, which means that by the time most people who bother to read this collection of Arsenal-related rabble, most of what has been said has already been supeceded by the words of Arsène. I'll persevere nonetheless though, because I'm sure I can find something Arsenal-related to talk about, especially given that [...]

Can Arsenal fans affect change?

By |April 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

I gave some musings on Twitter yesterday about the respective fan groups who have called on everybody to unite under the 'Time for Change' header, so I thought i'd elaborate a little on some thoughts, as there's very little else to talk about at the moment. That's what's fundamentally fueling this initiative, isn't it? The [...]

Insipid Arsenal and Arsene’s baffling selection decisions at Sunderland

By |April 25th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

Inspid was the first word that came to my mind after yesterday's display and I've already seen a number of Arsenal fans use it, so clearly I'm not alone in my view of how this Arsenal team failed again to show any kind of drive, any kind of belief and quite frankly looked like they [...]

Interesting selection choices for Arsene at Sunderland

By |April 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

With Moneychester City smashing Stoke yesterday at the Etihad, it pretty much means that they have an additional point over us with their superior goal difference. So whilst a point today would take us level with them, we really should be aiming for all three, because I think we need a gap between us by [...]

Ozil’s snub is expected; but take it with a pinch of salt

Hello Saturday, my old friend, how are you feeling? Happy St  George's Day to you, although you wouldn't really know it, what with nobody in England making a massive fuss over it. Or at least making it a national holiday. Hopefully well enough for you to grant me a relatively uneventful journey up to the [...]

Routine home win brings about ‘Elneny+1’ questions

That performance yesterday was what the Palace game was supposed to look like on Sunday, wasn't it? As the twighlight draws upon another season and Arsenal games begin to run out with little to play for, the team dispatches a mid-table side without any real song and dance, to which we finally get to draw [...]
