Arsenal – it’s time for a run

By |January 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Well who'da think that Everton would be capable of giving Man City a pasting like they did yesterday, eh? And just think, fourth months ago City were going to walk the league, Pep would be crowned the messiah reincarnate, English football would never be the same again and we'd all just give up.  And now [...]

We realised we were Arsenal after 30 minutes at Swansea

Yesterday's blog called for Arsenal to be controlling in midfield and retain possession of the ball. We aren't a team who can soak up pressure without it and defensively we just aren't disciplined enough to give our opponents the ball for too much of the time.  So after the first fifteen minutes of the game, [...]

Controlling the midfield – key for Arsenal today

By |January 14th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A tricky away one for us today I think. Swansea have been absolutely gash for most of the season, but they always love playing against us and with 'New Manager Syndrome' sure to be percolating through their squad today, we have to be mindful that the players will probably be giving a little bit extra [...]

Good ol’ Arsenal, they’re proud to sign those deals

Hello there fellow Arsenal supporting friend. Happy Friday to you!  It's The Management's Bon Anniversaire today, so I'll be partaking in an evening and a weekend of festivities, before buggering off to St Lucia for 10 days on Tuesday. Lovely jubbly. But to add to that jubbly, we got some other lovely news yesterday, which [...]

That numbing feeling of a missed opportunity for Arsenal

Having seen the score of the Totts against the Chavs game last night, I find myself this morning in a similar position to that of yesterday morning, after we were all licking our wounds post the Bournemouth game. On the one hand this is good for us; it means the gap between us an top [...]

Angry, relieved, frustrated, elated and resigned at Bournemouth

By |January 4th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Where does one even start after a performance like last night? It was maddeningly bizarre and ultimately a classic example of how infuriating Arsenal make us all as fans. Let's start with the actual outcome though, shall we? A 3-3 draw when you are supposedly hunting down a team who have won 13 on the [...]

Xhaka and direct runners are key against Bournemouth

Blimey it's cold in London this morning. The sort of cold that makes you want to have a Scrooge McDuck amount of cash in your vault, so you don't have to go to work and can roll over and ignore that the rest of the world is getting on with life, kinda cold. It's the [...]

New year, new stunner from Giroud

By |January 2nd, 2017|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Well. There's only one place to start today, isn't there? What. A. Goal. Take a bow Olivier Giroud, because you ain't scoring another one of those in your lifetime son, not in a competitive match environment anyway. It was majestic and although I couldn't be at the game to see it in person, the audible [...]

Welbeck’s timely return, when title aspirations hang on a knife-edge

If results go the way that I'd expect today, by the time we're all singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight, we could have a distance of 12 points to make up on Chelski to win the league before we play Palace tomorrow at 4pm. Sadly, I'm not full enough of Christmas/New Year hope that Stoke [...]

Mixed bag of injury news, as Arsenal start psychological recovery

By |December 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

It's still two days before the team play and quite frankly, the football couldn't come quickly enough, because it hasn't at all felt like a packed schedule so far. We've played one game in about two weeks. So I'm looking forward to seeing how we get on against Palace. Arsène gave an update on the [...]
