A blitzkreig of United, a controlled second half and a majestic Arsenal

By |October 5th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Arsène Wenger has built has various Arsenal teams with key attributes that include technical quality, quick passing and movement and a precision in their play that – when it works – is breathtaking and what football should be all about. For the first 20 minutes of yesterday’s game that is exactly what we were treated […]

Does Prickly Arsène have it in him?

By |October 3rd, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Well, if it isn’t the return of ‘Prickly Arsène’ in the press conference, who we hadn’t seen since at least 2013 I’m sure?

We all knew there’d be metaphorical blood spilt when Arsène went in front of the media coyotes, because they would be sniffing for blood and he looks very much like a wounded animal […]

Arsène finding the right balance between rant and praise?

By |October 2nd, 2015|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

So, Arsène had a training ground rant, did he? Apologies if you e already read this piece of info and I’m not bringing anything new to you, but I only read it this morning (see my blog yesterday for my reasons as to why I might be behind) and having read that, I feel a little […]

My football bubble, the Arsenal players’ football bubble

By |October 1st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

The pain of the woeful Tuesday display still remains, but it’s become a little bit more of a dull ache than a stabbing feeling in my gut, such is the speed in which football is coming at us with the games we’ve got midweek and then at the weekend.

Almost inevitably, some of the players have […]

Effervescent Alexis secures Arsenal the points

By |September 27th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday’s highlights, I don’t exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday’s performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game.

I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well as […]

How do Arsenal unwrap the ‘surprise package’ Leicester?

By |September 26th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

I really hope the team are riding high today after Wednesday’s North London Derby victory. Today is the last of our back-to-back-to-back-to-back away games and a win today feels like it could be really splendid, don’t you know. 

A win today means we go into the midweek game on another high and then if we can […]

The psychology and impact of Arsenal’s opening day West Ham defeat

By |September 21st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

This weekend just gone I spent in Northumberland with The Management’s family and, travelling back from the North East via car gives you plenty of time to think. Inevitably my thoughts centred around the Arsenal and whilst I listened to United beat Southampton and the subsequent radio phone-ins, I was able to ponder over the […]

Chelski game defined on two minutes of cheating, silliness and ref ineptitude

By |September 20th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It’s very difficult to make a proper assessment on the teams performances after yesterday’s defeat, what with the clear injustice that transpired at Stamford Bridge n’all, pretty much ending the contest before the halftime whistle had even been blown.

Perhaps we have Gabriel to thank for that, but in truth, he was merely the ‘patsy’ who […]

Chelski preview: hair of the dog

By |September 19th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|2 Comments

The one good thing about playing on a Wednesday night followed by a Saturday, I suppose, is that it does give you an opportunity to wash the nasty taste out of your mouth after a stinging defeat. Of course, much like ‘hair of the dog’ works wonders, if we lose again against Chelski today, it […]

Initial Chelski thoughts: midfield success wins the game

By |September 18th, 2015|analysis, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

Apparently there’s some sort of international tournament starting today. I’ll be darned if I know what it is, because my gaze is locked firmly on what happens at London Colney today and then Stamford Bridge tomorrow.

Oddly, there hasn’t been any team news to come out from yesterday like there normally is, so I’m guessing Arsène […]
