"Well? How many Arsenal players are the England team?" The Management said to me yesterday.  "None at the moment. Full of dirty Spurs players. That's why I'm only half watching this sh*tshow" I said at half time. Of course much like the second half and the late flurry of goals, it got much more interesting, [...]

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 [...]

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

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:06+00:00 March 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, History, Internationals|2 Comments

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 [...]

Alexis survives! Shame that Mourinho does too though

Alexis Sanchez really is something else, isn't he? For the last week all we've heard is how broken he is, how his heavy strapping is keeping his hamstring from twanging like an old banjo, yet last night he managed 84 minutes and two goals. What a machine. It just highlights to everyone how much of a [...]

Özil’s style may change; Santi’s return to help full backs

So, those pesky Chilean's have confirmed that Alexis will be playing for Chile tonight which whilst could leave some to being happy because his injury isn't as bad as first seemed, given the strapping on his leg You'd suspect they are patching him up and hoping for the best rather than him fully recovering. I'd imagine [...]

International curse striking with Bellerin now

By | 2017-05-19T20:07:17+00:00 November 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

So by the sounds of it, this international break is already starting to claim Arsenal players for its own, after Hector Bellerin was rumoured to be out for at least the next month with an ankle injury. To be fair to the Spanish under-21 team, it does appear as though the knock was sustained during the [...]

Arsene saves us all with an early presser

By | 2017-05-19T20:08:05+00:00 October 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Gunners, Internationals, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A Thursday morning press conference before a Saturday 3pm game? It's almost as if Arsene was as bored with the international break, so decided to drop a line to the press team to bring forward the presser by his normal Friday morning job, just so he could put this dreaded period behind him snd save [...]

An idea that will win Arsenal the league and minimise international annoyance

Howdy friend, how you holding up, on this most interlully of Saturday's? You ok? I'm ok. It's a little annoying that just as Arsenal begin to build momentum in the Premier League, an international break comes along, but what can you do? We've had to deal with this for as long as I can remember [...]
