Jovial Arsène sounding out an exit strategy

Well now, that was an interesting press conference yesterday, wasn't it? I've got to be honest, I didn't think there'd be much of note to come out of the presser yesterday and I wondered if Arsène would be tetchy and downbeat, but he seemed rather jovial given the performance of his team in midweek. There [...]

Take Eek over Apathy with new Arsenal manager

By |February 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, History, press conference, soccer|0 Comments

Morning. I've woken up to a feeling that I thought I wouldn't get for at least another couple of days. I'm over the Bayern defeat already.  Perhaps it's because I always knew we weren't good enough. Perhaps it's because I vented my spleen on my blog yesterday. Perhaps I'm just so bored with Arsenal I [...]

Cech, clickbaiting and Arsène

By |February 10th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

To get my football fix every day, I usually have a quick peruse of a number of sites, including Sky Sports. But over the years the number of sites that i 'trust' to deliver information that isn't clickbaity has diminished. So can you imagine my disappointment when a non-Arsenal fan came to me in the [...]

Tetchy Arsène and tired media narrative

By |February 9th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So what news from the front line, aka the official site, ahead of this weekend's round of football? We'll certainly find out today at some stage as Arsène - clearly wanting the pain of a press conference out of the way as quickly as possible by doing it today - takes to the microphones to [...]

Will Ox central work with Özil back in the team?

Morning all. It's back to Blighty, back to the office, which means back to my daily commute and blogging as a result and having had nearly two weeks to relax in the Caribbean sun, I feel somewhat rejuvenated when it comes to The Arsenal too. I managed to watch the Burnley game on a stream, [...]

Centre half stockpiling at Arsenal; no slip ups this weekend

Oh, hello, how the devil are you? Feeling fine and dandy on this Saturday morning? It's been a while since I blogged - Monday I think - but I thought I'd return to action given that there's football this weekend. I've been in St Lucia you see and whilst there's wifi throughout the resort, I [...]

Controlling the midfield – key for Arsenal today

By |January 14th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A tricky away one for us today I think. Swansea have been absolutely gash for most of the season, but they always love playing against us and with 'New Manager Syndrome' sure to be percolating through their squad today, we have to be mindful that the players will probably be giving a little bit extra [...]

Good ol’ Arsenal, they’re proud to sign those deals

Hello there fellow Arsenal supporting friend. Happy Friday to you!  It's The Management's Bon Anniversaire today, so I'll be partaking in an evening and a weekend of festivities, before buggering off to St Lucia for 10 days on Tuesday. Lovely jubbly. But to add to that jubbly, we got some other lovely news yesterday, which [...]

An unknown quantity for Arsenal – both who will start for us and Preston themselves

By |January 7th, 2017|Arsenal, FA Cup, Match Preview, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

Howdy howdy folks, hope you're all gravy on a Saturday, looking forward to the good ol' FA Cup fixture tonight? I'm rather excited, I have to say, because Preston is a new ground for me and it's also the first away FA Cup tie i think I've been too. I can't really fully remember if [...]

Welbeck’s timely return, when title aspirations hang on a knife-edge

If results go the way that I'd expect today, by the time we're all singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight, we could have a distance of 12 points to make up on Chelski to win the league before we play Palace tomorrow at 4pm. Sadly, I'm not full enough of Christmas/New Year hope that Stoke [...]
