Dire defensive displays will derail Arsenal’s season

We've got to all be honest with ourselves here: this team is probably going to fall away from even challenging from the top four if we continue to put in performances away from home like yesterday. Giroud's late flick in on 88 minutes may have taken some of the stink of the performance away, but [...]

That United game hurts my brain still

By | 2017-12-04T09:26:48+00:00 December 4th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Yesterday I had family over, which was a very fortunate excuse for not blogging, or having anything to do with the existence of Football, if I'm honest with you. I just didn't want the rage of knowing that Arsenal had a massive missed opportunity. And given the fact that the team had enough chances to [...]

Giroud – best of the Arsenal rest?

Morning folks. Welcome to Tuesday and welcome to a day in which that most emotional of people - the Italians - will be even more emotional given the fact that they’re players failed to reach the World Cup finals for the first time in a gazillion years.  I mention this only because I work with [...]

Interlull nothingness or NLD fear?

Ahh man, this feels like it’s a real dragger of an Interlull, and not just because there’s little going around by the way of Arsenal news. I tune out the transfer tittle-tattle when there’s still six weeks to go until the January window opens, and when it’s a window that doesn’t usually see big clubs [...]

Are Arsenal the new Everton?

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday. I’m at a conference all day today so it means an earlier than usual start so I can rattle through a few work emails before I head off.  It’s one of those annoying things where you know you’re out of the office and you know that unless you do [...]

The predictability of an Arsenal defeat away from home – Man City

By | 2017-11-06T09:08:55+00:00 November 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

Yesterday we chalked up another defeat this season and once again, for god knows how many times in the last ten years, we were defeated away from home to a top six team. Quite frankly it was all a little too predictable and having not watched the game I'm not surprised in the slightest. I [...]

Kroenke spin machine in overdrive

By | 2017-10-26T08:17:27+00:00 October 26th, 2017|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

It’s the AGM today and with the yanks in attendance and the AST set to go through with their symbolic gesture of no confidence by voting against Sir Chips and the Kroenke’s, it’s just to be a slightly more cagey atmosphere, even if that’s the best that fan groups can do to suggest change at the [...]

Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

By | 2017-10-17T07:45:41+00:00 October 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]
