Ozil’s snub is expected; but take it with a pinch of salt

Hello Saturday, my old friend, how are you feeling? Happy St  George's Day to you, although you wouldn't really know it, what with nobody in England making a massive fuss over it. Or at least making it a national holiday. Hopefully well enough for you to grant me a relatively uneventful journey up to the [...]

Arsenal revisionism

By |April 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Oh gawd. That Liverpool result last night, eh? Cue the media hyperbole and fallacy of 'special night at Anfield' rubbish. Cue the banners like that uber-cringe one that says Anfield is not in England, it is its own country. Cue talk of a historic team who defy the odds and are more special than any [...]

Can I ask Arsène a question?

By |April 8th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

I've had my issues with Arsène Wenger this season, but that doesn't still mean I don't support him as the manager of the team, and therefore don't want to hear some of his insight and tactical approach ahead of what is possibly the biggest game we've played against West Ham since I don't know when. [...]

A lot of ‘theory’ in the title run in

By |April 7th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

We're all now on countdown to arguably the biggest game of the season now, aren't we? I mean, it may not feel like it to you, but to me this upcoming match against West Ham is massive. It's massive because of what has transpired before it. In the grand scheme of things, the game against [...]

Watford: The surgical precision of Ozil is needed today

By |April 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So here we find ourselves, at the beginning of April, with all but the tiniest glimmer of hope that a Premier League title challenge remains. Were it to be City and Chelski duking it out at the top of the division, we'd all be looking at what reinforcements Arsenal need to make after another disappointing [...]

Hope remains, players return, but there should be no sentiment – we need to be flawless

Righto, this is a new month, it's a new me, one in which I have now formally given up alcohol until May and at a time in which my other habit - The Arsenal - has driven me to even more drink than usual, I'll have to find a way of numbing the pain of [...]

Keep Mesut by surrounding him with talent

Ahh man this international break is dragging, isn't it? It's like the last 15 minutes of your final lesson of the day when you were at school, a subject you absolutely detest and just want to get out in to the sweet, sweet fresh air and freedom. We're at Monday and still a full six days [...]

There’s only one man worth listening to at the moment – Mesut

By |March 18th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Rant|3 Comments

Today is Friday and today is Arsène's press conference, which starts at 9am and will probably be followed by a trip to Luton Airport, where the flight to Liverpool will take us to the City where some former glories have happened. But I don't think that we will be seeing a repeat of what happened [...]

Exploding hamstrings, succession planning and enjoying different flavours – some things for Arsene to consider

Happy Saturday to you super awesome people. hopefully it's one in which you can keep yourself busy, what with the whole 'no Arsenal' getting in the way n'all. For me it's one in which I've got half a day of some chores, then it's a bit of egg chasing observation with a couple of mates [...]

Crisis talks to ensure there is no ‘glorious failure’ for Arsenal

So here we are at the end of another working week and a weekend of FA Cup football ahead of us. Today is press conference day and whilst we got a bit of news as usual on injuries yesterday from Le Boss, he'll no doubt elaborate a little bit more this morning and give us an [...]
