Coming around to the Europa League debate

I've been thinking, right... Dangerous, I know, but hear me out with this. Maybe the Europa League for next season isn't that bad after all? I know, I know, there are plenty of reasons to be pretty perturbed by it. For one thing until we get to the quarter finals we won't play a team [...]

Resurgence at Stoke – in time for the final?

I must say 'welcome back' to the Arsenal. Where have you been? We've been hanging around your dodgy cousin that smells a little bit and looks a lot like you, but has a limp, gammy leg, croaky voice, German measles and quite frankly, it's been an unpleasant experience. I thought that I'd just have to [...]

Victory or bust for Arsenal away to Stoke

Here we are folks. We've arrived at one of the least palatable games of the season for Arsenal fans. Not because the opponents are better than us. Not because we are in the worst form in the world (although a few weeks ago that could have been the case), but because it's Stoke and oddly, [...]

The horrible permutations of today’s game; the expectation of tomorrow’s

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:02+00:00 April 22nd, 2017|Arsenal, FA Cup, History|0 Comments

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's FA Cup weekend but as seems to be par for the course these days, we don't play until Sunday. I suppose we'd better get used to it because next season unless something drastic happens in the Premier League, we'll be seeing a lot less Saturday football and a lot more Sunday [...]

Desire to win – take it before it goes

This might be a short one today. Mainly on account that quite simply, I can't really be arsed with Arsenal at the moment, pretty much reflective of the attitude of the players.  The official website is, quite sensibly, keeping schtum and the lead stories are related to the gloats, great, David Rocastle. At a time [...]

Arsène dusts off his PR templates for presser

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:05+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

There were some rumours earlier in the week that Arsène or Arsenal might make some sort of announcement on his future, most likely that he will be staying, but as seems to be par for the course these days, Arsène went in to PR template more when asked any kind of difficult question. Even when [...]

Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

Thierry won’t happen. Yet.

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:05+00:00 March 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

On Sunday I saw the reports about Thierry Henry and the rumoured interest in him to be the next Arsenal manager, with bookies slashing the odds, seemingly overnight. I thought about writing about it yesterday as some sort of footnote, but didn't bother because I thought it would be just one of the gutter press' [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]

A week off from Arsenal just the ticket

Happy Saturday folks. It's a Saturday in which London is bathed in a bit of sun today, so I intend on making the most of it, probably by staying in and watching TV or by going swimming in the indoor pool in Uxbridge. Yep, that's the British way, dontcha know. The Arsenal Way has essentially [...]
