Arsene’s ready to spend – like we were ready for the season?

Hi y'all, hope you're good, after all it is Friday. That's something to be positive about. Right? We also had Arsene's presser to talk about, which he did a day early, as is the custom these days when the team travel away from home. He spoke of a great many things, some of which I'll [...]

Arsène can arrest the negativity with a win tomorrow

By |August 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Happy Saturday and welcome to the first day of the season, albeit without any Arsenal, although that's ok, right? I mean, it allows us to take some sides by cheering on the teams of those that we perceive are the nearest rivals, so at least that's something.  So today you and I will be temporary [...]

Mustafi shuffling his way closer to Arsenal, but ‘internal solutions’ are now Arsène’s immediate priority

By |August 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

It's 7am on Friday as I write this, with at least 2 hours until Arsène's first presser of the season and where normally there would be anticipation and excitement on our chances this season, there is mainly only worry that what usually happens to Arsenal - injuries - has come at least two months earlier [...]

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.
