A draw, more inertia, and Arsène’s bizarre comments

By |August 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

This will probably be a shorter blog than usual, because I'm away with family for the weekend and so have only watched a few of the highlights, so some of the thoughts below are based purely on seeing the result after the game. Broadly speaking, a draw away to the champions is a normally nothing [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

Gabriel’s woes leave us short, but I took positives from yesterday too

Everything seemed to be going so well yesterday, didn't it? Right up until that moment when Gabriel flim-flammed his leg by twisting his ankle and having to be carried off on a stretcher. It's all so very...well...Arsenal, isn't it? Had Monreal got injured, we'd have all have been gutted, but Gibbs could have stepped in. [...]

Victory and good performances overshadowed by Arsène’s comments

By |August 6th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, pre season|0 Comments

I find it a little sad that despite an absolutely thumping victory - albeit against a poor Norweigen side in Viking FK - most of the talk after the game and today amongst Arsenal fans, is the post match comments about signings that he made. Certainly if you read just the written word about what [...]

Ox’s form delights as much as Wenger’s transfer smirk

A 3-1 victory over Chivas de Guadalajara yesterday was just the ticket for the Arsenal squad. We all know these games are about building up fitness, about preparation for the long Premier League season, but winning is fun and seeing that Arsenal won again in the States yesterday was good on my tired eyes as [...]

Black marks and green ticks, signings and rumours

By |July 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, friendly, Match Review, pre season|0 Comments

So, lots to talk about this Saturday, eh? How about with the fact that Arsenal had their first pre-season friendly of the summer yesterday evening, with a game in France against RC Lens. Unfortunately I was on babysitting duties, so didn't get the chance to watch the game in full, but i've read a match [...]

Arsenal players perform, potential ones less so

By |July 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, internationals, Match Review|0 Comments

Watching Germany last night had a very familiar feel to it, as an Arsenal fan, I must say. Plenty of possession, control of the ball in the most part, finding it difficult to break down the opposition, then when you do you come across a 'keeper who decides he's going to have a 'worldie'. So [...]

It ACTUALLY did happen again…

By |May 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

In this season of the bizarre and ridiculous, perhaps it was most fitting that on the final day an Arsenal team all had written off as quite poor, took one final step upwards in the league to leapfrog the Spuds by hammering Villa. In return, Newcastle decided to finally show up for their fans, giving [...]

Nearly there *sigh* – the performance against City showed it

By |May 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league, Rant|2 Comments

What a wonderful weekend of weather we had in England, particularly yesterday, which is the real positives I took from my first Sunday of May. It made the lethargic performance of our Arsenal team all the more palatable, I must say, as it truly does now look like the players are wanting to get this [...]
