The ‘Top Trump’ was the win, but there are still too many unanswered questions for Arsenal

By |May 1st, 2016|analysis, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

Did you ever play the popular card game "Top Trumps"? Well, regardless if you did or didn't, there was always one card that pretty much beats any other card in the whole deck. I have the Marvel version of the game and I think it's the Incredible Hulk. Well, the reason I'm bringing this up [...]

Can Arsenal fans affect change?

By |April 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

I gave some musings on Twitter yesterday about the respective fan groups who have called on everybody to unite under the 'Time for Change' header, so I thought i'd elaborate a little on some thoughts, as there's very little else to talk about at the moment. That's what's fundamentally fueling this initiative, isn't it? The [...]

Arsenal football purgatory

By |April 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I think it pretty much sums up the failure of this season, that we as a collective of Arsenal fans were endulging in a heck of a lot of schadenfreude when the Tiny Totts result came in against West Brom. I too partook; we do, after all, have little else to get excited about right [...]

Insipid Arsenal and Arsene’s baffling selection decisions at Sunderland

By |April 25th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

Inspid was the first word that came to my mind after yesterday's display and I've already seen a number of Arsenal fans use it, so clearly I'm not alone in my view of how this Arsenal team failed again to show any kind of drive, any kind of belief and quite frankly looked like they [...]

Arsenal fans are now apathy vs angry

By |April 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, premier league, Rant|4 Comments

Yesterday I mooted the idea that I wouldn't blog today, but who am I kidding, right? I am as ingrained in writing this daily musing of all things Arsenal, as Arsene Wenger is of giving players 'just one more chance' when they've already had enough for 12 lifetimes. So here I am today before you, [...]

Arsenal in full ‘meh’ mode

By |April 18th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

This is going to be a challenging blog to write today. Challenging in the sense that I suspect at times I'm going to come across as angry. As The Management often says to me though: I'm not angry. I'm just disappointed. So the challenge is conveying a person who is not angry. I really am [...]

Permutations. Damn those permutations

By |April 13th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, Rant|3 Comments

Yesterday I spent a bit of time on the blog talking about the fact that I'm not sure that there's much to play for this season. I speculated that we might see a little bit of experimentation as we have little to play for. But as Moneychester City glided past PSG to reach the Champions [...]

Changing the only constant left at The Arsenal

By |April 11th, 2016|analogy, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|6 Comments

As I watched the conclusion of The Masters yesterday, I took some comfort in the fact that as it turns out, it's not just Arsenal that choke under pressure in sport. Jordan Spieth, world number two and man who has controlled the entire competition, had a complete meltdown whilst cruising in front and allowed Britain Danny [...]

A very Arsenal implosion against West Ham

By |April 10th, 2016|analysis, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|0 Comments

So today we all wake up after Arsenal's title dreams unofficially died against West ham at Upton Park. Unlike Highbury, there was to be no 'last London derby game at ground' revenge we could extract on a very well organised West Ham team. Well, they were well organised for the second half, anyway. Because at [...]

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.
