Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

By | 2017-10-16T08:07:14+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]

Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Xhaka with space could be the difference against Watford

I don't really know what to make of tonight's game. There's part of me that looks at the form we were in before the international break and think that yes, we're on a good run and we should beat Watford, but even though that is the case there are a couple of nagging doubts I [...]

Morning folks. Lots of juicy Arsenal stuff to talk about today, so let's get right down to it, starting from where I left off yesterday which was that Arsène confirmed what Özil's agent said which was that talks were going well. of course we'd hardly expect the manager to say "it's a faaaaaacking shambles actually. We [...]

The reality behind Chambers & Özil contract situation

By | 2017-10-12T07:23:09+00:00 October 12th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Morning all and welcome to a brand new Thursday. It's a Thursday in which contracts are the hot topic and top of the agenda and that's not least because of the tale of two contract undertones that sit behind the two big stories emanating from yesterday: Calum Chambers has signed a new deal Özil' agent [...]

An advert for the Premier League

By | 2017-10-06T07:55:49+00:00 October 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, contracts, internationals, premier league|0 Comments

There's nothing like a series of international football to do the dirty work of the Premier League. The fact I saw people tweeting last night about when the Premier League returns shows you just how tedious the game was. Quite an advert for it, I'd even go as far to say.  The Premier League must [...]

Barca situation the first sign of a super league?

It feels like every month in today's world there is some new atrocity which makes the headline news and yet again we have some lone wolf gunman ending people's lives because of his own selfish actions. It doesn't matter what has happened to you, how bad your life is, how much wrong has been done [...]

Nothing wrong with a routine Arsenal display

I thought yesterday was the archetypal 'routine' win for Arsenal yesterday which, given how tired I was feeling after a heavy night of booze and karaoke followed by an early get up for The Arsenal, is no bad thing. One set piece free kick against the woodwork in the first half aside, we controlled possession [...]
