PSG – Arsène can’t put the player puzzles together again

By |November 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Rant|1 Comment

Ok folks, we clearly have a wee bit of an issue now, because for something like the fourth game in a row I saw an Arsenal side who didn't really click at all. And it's starting to worry me.  Middlesbrough at home, Sunderland away for the most part (until we turned the after burners on [...]

Alexis survives! Shame that Mourinho does too though

By |November 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, friendly, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

Alexis Sanchez really is something else, isn't he? For the last week all we've heard is how broken he is, how his heavy strapping is keeping his hamstring from twanging like an old banjo, yet last night he managed 84 minutes and two goals. What a machine. It just highlights to everyone how much of a [...]

International ranty gooner

By |November 12th, 2016|Arsene Wenger, friendly, gooners, injuries, Internationals, Rant|2 Comments

I hate the international break so much. From an Arsenal fans perspective, nothing ever good comes out of the players disappearing for national team duty, so I detest it with every fibre of my being. With just cause too, I might add, because I also live on the outskirts of London and so have to [...]

International curse striking with Bellerin now

By |November 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

So by the sounds of it, this international break is already starting to claim Arsenal players for its own, after Hector Bellerin was rumoured to be out for at least the next month with an ankle injury. To be fair to the Spanish under-21 team, it does appear as though the knock was sustained during the [...]

Common sense and rally cries from Arsenal’s best two

By |November 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, injuries, internationals, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

We're in to Wednesday, we've got to contend with the possible fact a crazy man now has the power to nuke us all, but at least we've heard from Özil and Alexis both saying positive stuff about the club. Right? I read both of the comments from the players over at Arseblog and the official site and [...]

A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

By |October 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, referees|0 Comments

Well lads and lasses, I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no idea what to make of yesterday's game. I don't know if I should be a little worried about the way in which we handed Swansea a few lifelines, or happy about the fact that at times we were breathtaking and ultimately [...]

Captains are club custodians – that’s it – learn from Arsenal, England

By |October 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, internationals, Rant|0 Comments

Honestly, have you ever seen as much fuss being made, as the whole 'Wayne Rooney dropped' saga that's being played out in the media. I don't remember any other captain getting the same level of treatment and attention when they were no longer England captain. It's just, well, weird if you ask me. He's 30 [...]

Has The Ox had enough of a ‘kick’?

By |October 6th, 2016|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

Is it me, or does this particular interlull, feel a little bit more tedious than the last couple that have preceded it?  I don't know what it is, but it already just seems like it's going on a little longer than usual, yet we're only at the first Thursday and we have at least another [...]

Nobodies looking at Arsenal – i like it

By |September 29th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Isn't life grand at the moment? I mean, we're playing well, scoring goals, winning football matches and the team are properly showing up. I'm excited at the moment, I have to tell you. But shall I tell you what I'm most happy about? Whisper it as I say this.....Nobody is talking about us. It's weird [...]

An unholy alliance before the most unholy of teams comes to the Emirates

By |September 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

Happy Friday one and all and it's a day closer to the old Saturday showdown against the most horrific excuse for a football team tomorrow, those racists from Chelsea, oh what a joy. More on the unspeakable evil that will descend upon North London when the team, management and detestable fans visit The Emirates tomorrow. [...]
