Early positive Arsenal signs at Borehamwood

Morning all! A bright one in London, which is becoming an awesome habit that Mother Nature is getting in to. I could certainly get used to a life like this if it happened every year. I could handle the rain, the grey, the cold and sleet, if it meant we get a few months of [...]

Say ‘eff you’ to this season with a win, Arsenal

By | 2018-05-13T09:15:02+00:00 May 13th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

So here we are folks. A historic day. The Arsenal and Arsène Wenger united and together for the very last time. It still hasn't properly sunk in that he won't be around after today but I suspect once we see all the tributes pour in, the media fawning and the Match of the Day crew [...]

Performance of individuals above result tonight

This feels like a strange ol' match day, doesn't it? It's barely registering on my internal fear-o-meter if I'm honest with you. That's largely because of the fact that unlike The Grand Old Duke of York and his 10,000 men, we can't go up or down the hill. We're just stuck in sixth. The worst [...]

Will there be a psychological issue of not winning away carried into next season?

By | 2018-05-08T07:47:58+00:00 May 8th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

With the final home game now past, the nice farewells and the thumping of Burnley behind us, there's little left in the season but to fulfil obligations by way of the remaining two fixtures, before Arsène and Arsenal go their separate ways. It'll feel a bit weird doing a match preview tomorrow if I'm honest, [...]

Let’s experiment with youth and attacking options against Burnley

The final home game of Arsène Wenger's reign is today and I'm sure it will be an emotional one. It'll certainly be for the manager and I'm sure he'll shed a tear or two. For me, I'm just sad that a once great manager is having his Arsenal career peter out like it is going [...]

Do the improbable, Arsenal

So here we are. By an absolute country mile and a half our biggest game of the season. The success of Arsène's last year in charge of the club we love could well boil down to 90 - or in an extreme case 120 - minutes of football against one of the most defensively disciplined [...]

Sentiment aside, momentum is still needed against West Ham

Today is the first time we'll hear from Arsene Wenger properly since the announcement was made on Friday about his exit but, in true Wenger style, I suspect he will want to dwell little on that and more on the game today. So I'll follow suit after this opening few words. But I do think [...]

Newcastle away with a distinct lack of nerves

Match preview ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League, April 2018, in which I don’t feel massively nervous for a change. Which is nice.
