The pros and cons of Arsenal’s hard Premier League start

In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

Big day for Unai; Calum to Fulham?

By | 2018-06-14T07:53:49+00:00 June 14th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Internationals, premier league, Transfers, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Today is quite a big day in Unai Emery's Arsenal career, if you think about it, because in just over an hours time from me penning today's thoughts the Premier League fixtures will be out and we'll know whether he has been granted an opportunity to play a series of 'winnable' games or whether he's [...]

Rosicky, World Cup and Premier League fixtures week: get excited

By | 2018-06-11T07:58:34+00:00 June 11th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

World Cup week is upon us and that means we have something else we'll be able to talk about for a whole month, enabling us to detach ourselves from the drivel that cones from the click-bait nonsense that the media want to serve up to us like the ad revenue hungry so-and-so's that they are. [...]

A chance for everyone under Emery?

By | 2018-06-07T07:54:53+00:00 June 7th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

It's a week to go and although I'll get into the World Cup when it comes around, it's hard to get too excited about this round of friendlies, especially when they are a right royal pain in my arse when it comes to my journey home. I take the Met Line from Moorgate to Uxbridge [...]

A monkey off a back and a thanks to a great man

So it all ends. Arsène's time as Arsenal manager has now finished and thankfully it did so with an away win. A monkey that had firmly attached itself to this team's back has been prized from its metaphorical shoulders with Arsène's final win and the man who we have all known as our manager sails [...]

Say ‘eff you’ to this season with a win, Arsenal

By | 2018-05-13T09:15:02+00:00 May 13th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

So here we are folks. A historic day. The Arsenal and Arsène Wenger united and together for the very last time. It still hasn't properly sunk in that he won't be around after today but I suspect once we see all the tributes pour in, the media fawning and the Match of the Day crew [...]

Lots of ‘lasts’ for Wenger

By | 2018-05-11T08:02:00+00:00 May 11th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Happy Friday y'all. A Friday in which we've now had time to digest the nuggets from Arsène's press conference and see him pull out yet more of those gems of quotes that he's done over the years. Of course the journos lapped it up. Talk of saying goodbye to trees, having early press conferences just [...]

A meaningless loss still hurts

I don't really know what more can be said about Arsenal away this season that hasn't already been spoken about time and time again this season and quite frankly, from a footballing perspective, next Monday and the end of this horrific campaign can well and truly get in the bin. I could talk about the [...]

Performance of individuals above result tonight

By | 2018-05-09T08:02:02+00:00 May 9th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

This feels like a strange ol' match day, doesn't it? It's barely registering on my internal fear-o-meter if I'm honest with you. That's largely because of the fact that unlike The Grand Old Duke of York and his 10,000 men, we can't go up or down the hill. We're just stuck in sixth. The worst [...]

Will there be a psychological issue of not winning away carried into next season?

By | 2018-05-08T07:47:58+00:00 May 8th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

With the final home game now past, the nice farewells and the thumping of Burnley behind us, there's little left in the season but to fulfil obligations by way of the remaining two fixtures, before Arsène and Arsenal go their separate ways. It'll feel a bit weird doing a match preview tomorrow if I'm honest, [...]
