Özil’s megabucks deal; Basel pre match thoughts 

By |September 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield|0 Comments

There are two major discussion points for me today and thankfully, neither of them involve Sam Allardyce! Firstly, the news filtering from a German Journo Henning Feindt, that Mesut Özil has signed a new deal and will wear the number 10 shirt. The journo in question wasn't exactly explicit on when Özil will occupy the [...]

Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

Experience shouldn’t beget complacency against Forest

By |September 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

It's a late one from me today, and probably a short one too, for I am not a well man. With about two hours worth of sleep, punctuated the whole time by needing to head to the loo, I feel like a bit of a shell of a person, so I may have to call [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

Onus on PSG could be to our advantage on the counter

By |September 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, Match Preview, Tactics|2 Comments

I don't know about you, but when I get towards the end of the season, depending on how Arsenal are playing, it always feels like a bit of a slog when it gets to each match day. That's where the start of the season is always so much more enjoyable, because at this early stage [...]

Decisions, decisions, decisions for Arsene’s team selection

Ahh match day, that sweetest of things and whilst I can't make the game itself today because of my current location, I still feel the same levels of excitement when it comes around. Southampton at the Emirates for a 3pm kick off means I'll be watching from an Irish bar in the Algarve, with a [...]

A reaction is essential for Arsenal, to avoid the sharks circling

Happy Saturday gooners. It's match day and it's an away trip to Leicester City that the team has in front of them to try to erase the residual embarrassment that was caused from last weekend's home defeat to Liverpool. Sadly, there's no new faces to freshen the team today, so the decision that Arsène has [...]

Liverpool’s new signings to bed in – we don’t have that problem!!

By |August 14th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Oh match day, how I have missed thee, let me count the ways.... ...loads. Like, literally, loads. It's the first one of the season for us and, having seen the mighty Champions in Leicester - they know who they are and they reminded us yesterday in their chants - lose to Hull, whilst Everton drew [...]

Arsenal; Finish this off with a flurry against Villa

By |May 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

So here we are at last. It's the final game of the 2015/16 season and what started out as one in which I thought we really would win the league this year, petered out as it usually does for Arsenal after Christmas. Our inconsistency has cost us and our injury problems have crippled us, but [...]

City preview: tough to call which sides will bother turning up

By |May 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Matchday 37 and we're nearly at the end folks. We need just one more win to secure fourth and a win and a draw today to secure third. That would be much more preferable from a planning point of view for next season, as Arsene has already talked about in Friday's presser, but in reality [...]
