As I made my usual walk towards Uxbridge tube station this morning I started to think about Arsène and how much he has fallen from the pedestal that I put him on in my mind. I started to think about how a man who I once hoped could manage us forever, is now a guy [...]

Spin merchants Arsenal dig out 2012 rhetoric

In 2014 when Arsène signed his last deal, there was a genuine feeling around some of the fanbase and people that I speak to, that it was probably worth giving it to him. We'd got the trophy monkey off our backs, we'd come out of a period of self imposed austerity and now we could [...]

Morning friends, how are you doing? Been any news for us to speak of lately? anything that could constitute groundbreaking at The Arsenal? Of course im talking about the news filtering out through the usual back channels yesterday that Arsène and Stan had agreed a new deal for the manager and he would ratify it [...]

Lucas is a tourist and Arsenal are a conker

Morning fellow Gooners. How are you feeling? Are you still reeling from the failure of the league campaign? Or are you like me, in this weird limbo in which you're not quite sure right now, given the circumstances?  Yes the league campaign was pretty shoddy and yes, the manager and players can and should be [...]

Resurgence at Stoke – in time for the final?

I must say 'welcome back' to the Arsenal. Where have you been? We've been hanging around your dodgy cousin that smells a little bit and looks a lot like you, but has a limp, gammy leg, croaky voice, German measles and quite frankly, it's been an unpleasant experience. I thought that I'd just have to [...]

Arsenal: The institutionalised fanbase

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:01+00:00 May 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

I don't really feel much like blogging today if I'm honest with you. I mean I will, after all it's my thing that I do when I get up in the morning and sit on a train hurtling towards London for a day of grind, but certainly the desire has been sapped out of me. [...]

Arsenal and ‘representative samples’

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:05+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Ownership and the board, Rant|4 Comments

Well, the AST seem to have caused somewhat of a debate in the Arsenal universe with their poll, haven't they? Of the poll they did of their members, which they have 1,000 and 424 responded, 80% of fans said they wanted Wenger gone. Which then led to the inevitable sensationalist headlines from the media claiming [...]

Xhaka can be a fulcrum in this team

Happy Friday friends. Hope you are well? Let's talk about Xhaka, shall we? After all, he's been talking to the press in Germany, which has handily been transcribed by the good people over at Arseblog News. The article makes for quite interesting reading actually. I really like Xhaka. He comes across as open and honest, [...]

We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

Two for one with Xhaka

I like Thursday's. Not as much as Friday's, but Thursday's still have faint whiff of the weekend about them and as far as I'm concerned, that's a-ok with me. Usually you start to get stories coming out of Arsenal on a Thursday too, even in the pre-season summer lull, stuff always feels like it's about [...]
