We have our level – Europa League

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 [...]

‘Be careful what you wish for’ Arsenal

Some thoughts on why the phrase ‘be careful what you wish for’ no longer applies to Arsenal fans who want Arsène to stay. It’s time for change and I’m not afraid of it any more.

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

Ticket allocations and Ramsey-based decisions

Happy 'Middle-o-week' day to thee, my wonderful Arsenal supporting colleague, I hope yours is a good one? If you're a UK-based Arsenal fab and a season ticket holder then I guess the answer to that is dependent on whether or not you got lucky in the ballot yesterday for the cup final. By and large [...]

The Great Arsenal Cull of 2018

The last Arsenal 'shake up' occurred after the abomination of a defeat to United back in 2011, when Arsène finally admitted in August that the team needed a heck of an overhaul to even get close to competing for top four that he brought in Big Per, Arteta, Benayoun and Andre Santos as the window [...]

A United chuckle, Liverpool panic and Rosicky appreciation blog

United lost yesterday and we all got to engage in a bit of schadenfreude at their expense, until it became clear that City have a nice and easy tie against Bristol City to pick up probably at least one of the minimum two trophies they should win this season, at which point it became less [...]

Do Arsenal have a development problem?

By | 2017-12-18T08:13:23+00:00 December 18th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, soccer, Tactics|2 Comments

A nice provocative question to start off your week. But one of those that whilst it felt to me as provocative when I wrote the headline first thing this morning, the more and more I re-read and think about it, the more it feels obvious. Arsenal most certainly do have a development problem. That kind [...]

Mustafi’s absence could be an issue for Xhaka – Southampton v Arsenal preview

I've awoken this morning to snow. It really is quite magical this time of year and London is white with it. In a way I'm glad we don't have a home game because getting to the Emirates on the Met Line today could be an absolute nightmare. But it's an away day and for many [...]

New scout – beginning of the Arsenal legacy shift?

In the summer - early in the summer as well - Ivan talked about a 'catalyst for change' at the club and come 1st September the lack of transfer activity in core areas of the pitch - notably midfield - led many of us to feel as though we'd once again been fed spin by [...]

The nerves of the NLD – how can any fan enjoy this?

I'm sat here at my Macbook staring blankly at white space. It's North London Derby day and I've got that very familiar feeling that comes at least twice a season minimum. We play them. That lot down the road. The noisy neighbours. The chirpiest of chirpy fans. The ones that we've always said live in our [...]
