Gritty Arsenal find a way against Leicester. Just.

Three on the bounce feels lovely this morning doesn't it? It certainly felt good when I knew the game was over and on the surface, this new formation looks decent, with three victories and an Arsenal team that look like they're building their confidence to play it more and more with each game. Whether it's [...]

Battle and bottle back for The Arsenal

By |April 24th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Defence, FA Cup, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|0 Comments

This season the players have - rightly in my opinion - been chastised for some of their performance and at times the perceived lack of effort they deliver for Arsenal football club. We've seen too many under par performances and that has led to widespread condemnation. So it only seems fair that this morning that [...]

The boost every Arsenal fan needed

A football match was won last night. By Arsenal. Away from home. I'd almost forgotten about what that felt like. Middlesbrough were the side dispatched and now in the cold light of day you can say with some comfort that they are probably almost definitely going down. Arsenal were hardly immense and at times we [...]

Palace – Arsenal players’ silent revolt 

By |April 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, Tactics|1 Comment

As I listened to the chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" from our fans at the Palace ground in the away end, I asked the question to Ben - who has become somewhat of an Arsenal therapist in the last couple of seasons - is it me or is this like the [...]

Arsenal make me numb

After the game yesterday I felt angry for about four minutes. I was angry and upset about that performance and I was feeling a little ranty. But by five minutes after the game, I was back to myself and I got on with the rest of my day. I didn't bother looking at Sky Sports [...]

The ageing Arsenal boxer – it’s sad

I don't really know what to say. I don't think there's anything that I can say that would either soothe my own soul when it comes to Arsenal, or offer any words of consolation or positivity to you, because I have none for myself. Arsenal Football Club looks like it's on its knees at the [...]

A weary Arsenal fans blog

What can be said this morning that hasn't already been said repeatedly of late? I almost don't want to bother writing today's blog. The analysis will sound alarmingly familiar and my tone will be as weary as an Arsenal fan could feel this morning. I'm tired of this. I'm tired of seeing this Arsenal team [...]

Just enough Arsenal

Apologies if I can't draw myself up to be too irate about the overall performance yesterday, but if I'm honest with you, all we needed was the win and that's what we got in the end. So now isn't the time to go all football purist and be outraged that we didn't smash Sutton 6-0 [...]

Abject Arsenal players are a disgrace to the shirt

I am appalled. I am appalled at the travesty of a performance that we witnessed yesterday. In Championship Manager they used to have a saying which involved describing you team as 'running out of superlatives to describe'. What is the exact opposite of that? What is the antithesis of running out of nice things to [...]
