Arsene’s margins are fine re: contract; players WILL come in during the summer

By |May 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well then, what shall we talk about today, then? Maybe what Arsene said during his presser yesterday? Oh, alright then. Team news is that Mesut is back and after looking like he was going to smash Henry's record, he still needs two more assists just to equal it. It's not been from the want of [...]

Is Arsène asking himself the right questions?

By |May 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference|4 Comments

Yesterday afternoon Arsène spoke about how everyone at the club is devastated that Danny Welbeck has picked up this second injury. You'd expect him to say something like that and as I lamented yesterday, I too won't dwell on what has been a terrible injury at a time in which his importance to the team was obvious [...]

Poor old Ox, as I think Arsene’s looking up top

By |May 7th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Let's start today's blog by extending a little bit of sympathy to The Ox, as Arsene surprisingly confirmed yesterday that he's had a knee injury and will now be out for between six to eight weeks. From an Arsenal perspective this impacts us little; he was, after all, injured for the latter part of this [...]

Some fans find it too easy to scrap players

By |May 6th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

It's press conference day today, which means that by the time most people who bother to read this collection of Arsenal-related rabble, most of what has been said has already been supeceded by the words of Arsène. I'll persevere nonetheless though, because I'm sure I can find something Arsenal-related to talk about, especially given that [...]

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 [...]
