Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

By | 2017-10-16T08:07:14+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]

Team structure over expendable star men like Alexis

I wanted to broach a topic today that I sort of touched upon yesterday, relating to both Özil and Alexis and of course, there inevitable departures in either January or more likely May next year.  I think the first of the contract rebels of the modern era was Flamini. I'm sure others will put me [...]

Welbz got the Arsenal curse?

Poor old Welbz.  If what is to be believed from the The Telegraph yesterday, it could mean a month on the sidelines for a player who it's fair to say, has had the most unlucky time with injuries since signing. It's almost as if joining Arsenal condemned a fit player to some kind of injury [...]

No Mesut this weekend?

Morning folks, hope y'all are alreet? This Thursday football, delayed kick off malarky is havoc on the ability to write content you know. Yesterday I was cream-crackered and today as I chow down on my honey and peanut crunch cereal, I have no press conference words from Wenger to have a look at and work [...]

Adams has 2 years minimum to wait; transfer window success

So much to get through today, that I'm not even sure the trip from Uxbridge to Moorgate will be enough time to see me include everything, such is the case after an interlull.  Unlike a tactically drip-fed Arsène Wenger beIN interview, we don't get dribs and drabs, just the whole shabang. Let's start with dear [...]

The Arsenal contract mess

I was kind of liking the Arsenal quiet zone that had existed whilst all of the players were away on international duty. It was like an oasis of calm amidst the gnashing of teeth on all sides at the moment. The silence wasn't deafening, it was bliss, and I took advantage to have a nice [...]

Arsenal cry wolf for the final time

Well, that's it then, we've ended the summer known as the 'Catalyst for Change' summer, with that usual of Arsenal things: an underwhelming feeling that comes when you know your club hasn't done all it can to be competitive. Here's the thing: I will go to many home games, I will go to a small [...]

I support Arsenal: I have been lied to

Hello. How are you doing? Hopefully you are holding up ok? Given the circumstances?  After all, three months ago you were told that Arsenal had a 'war chest' of around £200million to spend. You were fed lines by those who are used as PR mouthpieces for the club who you might not blame for the [...]

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 [...]
