I rarely enjoy the North London Derby

By | 2018-12-01T08:37:29+00:00 December 1st, 2018|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|0 Comments

Here we are folks. Weekend is here and we're on countdown to the North London Derby against that 'orrible lot down the road. The good news is that our first team should be well rested and up for this game, having not travelled to Kiev on Thursday. Hopefully they're up for it because I think [...]

Özil away – for or against?

A wet and sodden England today makes for a happy Christopher not. It's an early start, dark, I'm wet all over and we have to wait another 36 odd hours until The Arsenal are on again. Still, at least we get a bit of midweek football so I probably shouldn't grumble too much. And there's [...]

Tactical change the difference against Bournemouth

A happy Monday to be had by all us Gooners today, after getting that draw monkey off our backs and getting back to winning ways with a hard fought 2-1 win away to Bournemouth. I'd said before the game I thought it would be a really tough one and I wasn't wrong; Bournemouth under Eddie [...]

Stop Bournemouth’s pace and through balls with our press

This game today is a difficult one to call you know. Ten years ago a team that goes up against Arsenal to 'play football' used to be an absolute dream for us, because we'd soon put them to the sword. But ever since Swansea and Michu all those years ago, teams have been able to [...]

Kos has a lot to offer as Emery talks up young rotation

Happy Saturday friends. How are we all doing? Feeling happy that it's the weekend? Or troubled that we have to wait one more day to get the real football back in the shape of The Arsenal? At least we had a press conference with ol' Unai giving us an update on where he thinks we're [...]

Is Arsenal’s injury curse back?

A later one from me today, as the new job means conference calls first thing on a Friday, but given that it's been an interlull week I guess that it doesn't really make a lot of difference. Ol' Unai has taken to doing his pressers in the afternoon anyway so it's not like I have [...]

Arsenal lord’s are leapin’ (in to jail)

My poor ol' lookalike. The one, the only, the Lord, Nick Bentdner, has been sentenced to 'jail' for a assaulting a taxi driver; a crime he thinks he did not commit. If only there was some kind of crack team of vigilantes (they themselves who had been victims of a crime of which they did [...]

Ramsey situation isn’t like Alexis, so Bayern is palatable

Happy Friday people. Hope it goes well for you and your kin. Me, I'm toiling in the boredom levels of no Arsenal to think constantly about, but the fact I have my folks over for the weekend and the fact The Management and I are doing a bit of tourism in London tomorrow is keeping [...]

Scudamore’s Scrooge McDuck impression and pathetic Brexit football quotas

It's understandably quiet at the moment as we head into another one of these international breaks. Honestly, these things are quite vexing, I must say. If we can look at anything positive from it, it's that our momentum had been stuttering of late, but I'd really rather be playing Bournemouth away this Sunday than having [...]
