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 […]

The benefits of a confident squad – not just first XI

There’s no time for basking in victory right now, the games are coming thick and fast and tomorrow night the team will look to make it three wins in a row by trying to overcome Olympiakos.

I must say I do love it when Arsenal play so often, but it doesn’t leave you much room for […]

Arsenal heroes can be found in the unlikeliest of places

With Arsène yet to even announce any kind of team news for tomorrow (as I type – first thing Friday morning), I feel like a pilot flying through thick, soupy fog without any of my instruments to guide the way. There’s a very good chance this blog will crash in to some sort of opinionated […]

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 […]

Arsène ‘The Deceiver’? Do me a favour

Ahh Friday. Full of promise of a weekend of enjoyment, full of Arsenal and everything a home 3pm Saturday afternoon kick off and full of fallout from an Arsène Wenger press conference.

For it is he, the man with which so much irritation appears to be directed, who has caused much consternation amongst some Arsenal fans […]

Alexis the machine; Arsène has a point on technology and transfers

Hey there fellow fan, how are you holding up during this barren Arsenal weekend? Any good? 

I’m feeling your pain, because I feel pretty fed up at the lack of Arsenal too, so we can both be a bit morose with Sky and BT for fudging around with the fixtures. Monday Night Football may give a […]

Hoping Welbeck doesn't go full Rosicky with his injury

Last night I woke up just before midnight to the most brain-stabbingly painful headache at the back of my bonce, I thought my head was going to explode like I was on the Mars surface in Total Recall.

I suspect it was just my body rejecting the 6,624,253rd rumour about Benzema signing. There’s only so much […]

Dropping points not so bad? Falling for the click-baiters is though

So Happy Saturday to you. It’s one in which we have to wait a little bit before we get to avenge the defeat last weekend. Sure, we took a bit of a surprise sucker punch from Slaven Bilic’s West Ham, but it was only our first game of of the 2015/16 season (match preview from the guys […]

A chirpy Arsene and the excitement/fear of the unknown; The Premier League begins…

Here we are. After all the summer waiting, anticipating and hoping, we’ve arrived at the start of the Premier League season with the first weekend. It’s a bit of a funny one though, because we’re not playing tomorrow, so it only really half feels like the Premier League starts in earnest today.

The up side is […]
