‘Small miracles’ and majestic Arsenal men

By |December 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Match Review|0 Comments

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Welly, welly, welly. Wellington. Wellington. Wellington. Didn't expect that from the last round of Champions League matches in our group, did we? No-siree we didn't. But we got what I think Arsène had described as a 'small miracle' and both the Arsenal team put out yesterday, as well as the Ludogorets team [...]

Awesome Alexis annihilates Hammers

By |December 4th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I've wanted us to give a team a pasting for such a long time. Other sides at the top of the table had been doing it, but we hadn't quite put anybody to the sword just yet domestically. November came and went and we had looked to have lost a little bit of the spark [...]

Arsenal rotated players do themselves no favours

By |December 1st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Review|0 Comments

Yesterday evening I didn't get to watch the game as I was out with The Management doing other things; like enjoying myself. I think it's fair to say I've dodged a bullet on that one because by all accounts, it didn't make for fun viewing and had I spent some of my hard-earned cash to [...]

Bournemouth: Hard to find praise or fault – but result is a result

By |November 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I found yesterday's game a strange one to digest and think about, in terms of formulating some post-match blog thoughts for this Monday morning. Strange because whilst we got the job done by getting the three points, we weren't convincing at all in patches, but by the same token I didn't think Bournemouth were that [...]

PSG – Arsène can’t put the player puzzles together again

Ok folks, we clearly have a wee bit of an issue now, because for something like the fourth game in a row I saw an Arsenal side who didn't really click at all. And it's starting to worry me.  Middlesbrough at home, Sunderland away for the most part (until we turned the after burners on [...]

Incorrect team set up is spared blushes by Ollie G

By |November 20th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

What is it about Old Trafford? What is it about Jose Mourinho? Both seem to bring out the worst - performance-wise - in Arsène Wenger teams. Yesterday was a painful game to watch. It was 45 minutes of tedium followed by 45 minutes of under performance from Arsenal players, which was only spared by a [...]

Frustration and nerves- the North London Derby

By |November 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league|1 Comment

I told you I hated North London derbies. Yesterday was no exception. Worry before, nerves during, and in the case of yesterday's result it was disappointment after. The disappointment isn't because we completely outplayed a Tottenham team who don't concede many, but more that we didn't show our potential in a big game at home [...]

Magic Mesut masterminds Ludogorets beating

By |November 2nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|0 Comments

Well, I thought that turned out ok in the end last night, didn't it? Considering the opening circumstances... We all knew Arsène was going to rotate his squad yesterday, but unlike in years gone by when that has filled many of us with fear, I personally was quite happy that we were able to give [...]

Dominance at Sunderland, with all of the squad showing form

By |October 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league, referees|1 Comment

I can tell you this right now - going for afternoon cakes in house of Sunderland supporters after your team has just put them to the sword by four goals to one - is definitely more preferable than doing it when the result is not in one's favour. Having spoken to The Management's family about [...]
