The sun, the goals, the comments – West Ham match review

Yesterday's game was always going to be more of an emotional and nostalgia-infused affair after Wenger's announcement on Friday. It was a warm day with that April sun that sometimes greets us at this time of year in London, all adding to a very carnival and friendly feel to the game, almost like when it's [...]

Sentiment aside, momentum is still needed against West Ham

By | 2018-04-22T09:15:09+00:00 April 22nd, 2018|Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Today is the first time we'll hear from Arsene Wenger properly since the announcement was made on Friday about his exit but, in true Wenger style, I suspect he will want to dwell little on that and more on the game today. So I'll follow suit after this opening few words. But I do think [...]

Some post press conference thoughts on the empty stadiums, subsidised tickets, and player injuries ahead of Arsenal v West Ham

Permutations show how far Arsenal have fallen

By | 2018-04-18T07:44:16+00:00 April 18th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's that time of the year where football fans start to become mathematicians, as they try to calculate the various permutations that could befall their football team. How many points to be assured of safety? How many points to get in to the playoff places? How close are we to the Europa League spots? What [...]

Flat in Newcastle as Arsenal underperform again

Arsenal fail to pick up another point in an away game in 2018. It’s getting boring now.

Newcastle away with a distinct lack of nerves

Match preview ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League, April 2018, in which I don’t feel massively nervous for a change. Which is nice.

Roma fire a warning shot for Arsenal’s benefit

If ever there was a metaphorical neon 'warning' light that should have been flashing at London Colney and every Arsenal players house last night, it was demonstrated in the Champions League, but not where we thought. I tuned in to watch Liverpool hang on in the first half and then had some dinner and didn't [...]

Arsenal getting attack right, defence wrong, against Southampton

By | 2018-04-09T08:13:35+00:00 April 9th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

Happy Monday folks. It's a wet and drizzly one in West London and has pretty much been like that since Saturday but I'll not let that get me down. After all Arsenal notched another win, got three more goals, we saw Aubameyang get on the score sheet yet again, Welbeck even notched a few, so [...]

How much rotation today against Southampton?

By | 2018-04-08T09:55:49+00:00 April 8th, 2018|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

The big question about the Arsenal team today is: How much will Arsene Wenger rotate today? There's little doubt that there will be some element of rotation (you can do a bit of betting - as well as some casino stuff here at 1xbet promo code if you fancy it) but should he completely reshuffle his pack [...]

Wrapping Arsenal players in wool, but not too much, because we want to see them

As we all wait with baited breath on the injury to Mkhitaryan, my mind has already started to shift to tomorrow's game against Southampton and wonder what happens if our Armenian has suffered the suspected medial ligament damage that Arsene spoke about immediately after the game on Thursday night, then it really will be a race [...]
