Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Nothing wrong with a routine Arsenal display

By | 2017-10-02T08:20:44+00:00 October 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

I thought yesterday was the archetypal 'routine' win for Arsenal yesterday which, given how tired I was feeling after a heavy night of booze and karaoke followed by an early get up for The Arsenal, is no bad thing. One set piece free kick against the woodwork in the first half aside, we controlled possession [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

Laca looks ‘Wrighty’, Alexis looks too individual against Baggies

A win to set the week off is always a good thing. A win with a clean sheet is also very delightful. A win I. Which your star striker bags a brace is also something to savour. So on a relatively balmy night in North London yesterday evening, I'm pleased that it's just what was [...]

Job done for Arsenal, little more

I wouldn't have described yesterday's victory against Doncaster Rovers as 'thrilling'. Nor would I put it down as 'comprehensive'. It was certainly a win and safe passage to the fourth round against Norwich at The Emirates, but it was hardly a humdinger of a cup tie, was it? As expected Arsène rotated his whole team [...]

Discipline, organisation and positives: Arsenal vs Chelski

Well how about that for a turn up for the books?  Away from home. To Chelski. Game management.  A modern day Arsène Wenger team performance. Sure, it wasn't the victory we craved but hey, there was enough in that 0-0 at Stamford Bridge to suggest that actually when their heads are screwed on, this Arsenal [...]

A disjointed Arsenal victory against Cologne

By | 2017-09-15T08:16:31+00:00 September 15th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Tactics|1 Comment

Before one delves in to the why's and wherefore's of yesterday's victory against Cologne, I suppose the most important thing to note is that Arsenal did indeed get the victory we needed, in the end. But by golly, wasn't it hard going for us, eh?  The night started off pretty grim before kick off anyway, [...]

More fun at The Emirates – because of the high press

I don't know about you folks, but I thorough;y enjoyed watching yesterday's game against Bournemouth, pretty much from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, I was nervous and much like the crowd and its hushed tones up until the second goal went in I was feeling like we could easily eff it all up, [...]

Arsenal and Arsène are insulting us all

I can't hold back this morning. What happened yesterday at Anfield was nothing short of a disgrace. It was symptomatic of Arsenal football club under this tired and dated manager who mollycoddles and placates a collective of underperforming premadonnas who do not deserve to put on the Arsenal shirt. Yesterday was the culmination of a [...]

Baffling selection decisions =Arsenal Groundhog Day at Stoke

So we're two games in to the new season and already the hope and sporations of a new season appear to be in the sh*thouse, after a performance that seemed vintage Arsenal 2011 - 2016. Once again it was Stoke, once again we fell apart defensively, once again there are questions about the manager's decisions, [...]
