A timely Alexis breather? How about a flexible transfer window just for Arsenal?

Time is a good healer. I feel less peturbed about the lacklustre performance on Sunday now than I did yesterday. I’m still – nor do I ever will be – at the stage where I’m spinning this in to a more positive outlook like Arsène did when he said “at least we didn’t lose”, but […]

Norwich: don’t leave our fullbacks exposed and stay disciplined, Arsenal

By |November 29th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It’s match day today and another away game against a Norwich side who will be looking to pick up some points in front of their home fans and also move further away from the teams at the bottom. For us, it’s an opportunity to climb a couple of places up to second if we can […]

Seeking solace by finding out about the Arsenal opposition

Saturday’s without Arsenal are like pies without mash. You can get by, you can even find some enjoyment, but it never quite has the same impact.

That’s what we’re faced with today boys and girls. No mash. Not even a potato. Still, at least it means I can observe the other games happening today and cheer […]

A title race for all and an Alexis made from stronger stuff

Good old Arsène and his early press conferences. It gives me something to talk about on a Friday, you see, so I’m always happy when it happens. Of course, Saturday may still be a quiet day, but that’s none of my concern first thing on a Friday morning, I can tell thee!

Concerns. Do we have […]

Games will make Flamini better, but will it be enough?

By |November 26th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

I wonder if Arsène will deliver his pre-match presser today, given that we’re away this weekend, or whether he’ll just leave it until tomorrow?

That’s the kind of thinking that goes through my mind first thing on a weekday, so it’s probably good that I have a medium with which to channel my constant Arsenal thought […]

Title talk is fanciful as injuries take toll against the Baggies

Where to even begin with the shower of the proverbial that we witnessed from Arsenal yesterday, eh? I mean seriously, I have no idea where to even start. Nothing went right. We played terribly. Then, even with most of the 90 minutes of tripe we had to sit through, we still get handed a lifeline […]

Expect physicality, but to beat West Brom we need to show technical superiority

Please forgive me if I end up jinxing the outcome of today’s game, but this match today feels very much like the Swansea game of a few weeks ago, in which we had some very difficult moments but ended up winning comfortably away in South Wales.

I’m not saying that I think we’ll win today (there, […]

Last chance saloon for Campbell and I rule myself out for Arsène

Thank R.Kelly it’s Friday. I’m certainly ready for the weekend I can tell you. A bit of booze, lie-ins and more importantly, The Arsenal.

I suspect Arsène and his charges will be making their way up to some West Midlands based hotel today at some stage, because he got his presser out of the way early […]

Mesut Özil: Is this the birth of an Arsenal legend?

By |November 12th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, History, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

Last night I had a little smile to myself. I was thinking about the outrage when Arsène waved away the overtures of a Fabregassian return to the club and the player himself admitted that Arsène had told him that he wouldn’t take up the option on the Spaniard, because we had Mesut Özil, with whom […]

Football loans – the rich get richer

Now, admittedly the following thoughts for today are based on opinion, rather than in depth research. I write this blog whilst on my way to work travelling in on the Metropolitan Line tube and occasionally it goes in and out of signal, so the ability for me to undertake lengthy statistical analysis is somewhat mitigated.
