Desire to win – take it before it goes

By |April 12th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Rant|0 Comments

This might be a short one today. Mainly on account that quite simply, I can't really be arsed with Arsenal at the moment, pretty much reflective of the attitude of the players.  The official website is, quite sensibly, keeping schtum and the lead stories are related to the gloats, great, David Rocastle. At a time [...]

Palace – Arsenal players’ silent revolt 

By |April 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, Tactics|1 Comment

As I listened to the chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" from our fans at the Palace ground in the away end, I asked the question to Ben - who has become somewhat of an Arsenal therapist in the last couple of seasons - is it me or is this like the [...]

Arsenal and ‘representative samples’

By |April 1st, 2017|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Ownership and the board, Rant|4 Comments

Well, the AST seem to have caused somewhat of a debate in the Arsenal universe with their poll, haven't they? Of the poll they did of their members, which they have 1,000 and 424 responded, 80% of fans said they wanted Wenger gone. Which then led to the inevitable sensationalist headlines from the media claiming [...]

Arsène dusts off his PR templates for presser

By |March 31st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

There were some rumours earlier in the week that Arsène or Arsenal might make some sort of announcement on his future, most likely that he will be staying, but as seems to be par for the course these days, Arsène went in to PR template more when asked any kind of difficult question. Even when [...]

Alexis’ underlying threats should force Arsenal’s hand

What with the lack of domestic football, players going across the world and us as fans left to stew on the recent poor form, what we really needed was a star player giving an interview in his homeland laced with cryptic messages. Alexis was interviewed in Chile after their 3-1 win and noises started permeating [...]

Non-existent Arsenal succession planning

By |March 27th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, contracts, History, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

I've got to be honest with you, I thought we might get some sort of snippet coming out of the French press from Wenger with regards to this new deal that we all know is coming, given that he'll have been commentating on the French national team this weekend. The fact that he hasn't said [...]

Contract balderdash from Arsène and Arsenal players

By |March 23rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, Rant|0 Comments

Before I go all Arsenal on today's proceedings, I'm sparing a thought for the families of those people who lost their lives or were badly injured on Westminster Bridge yesterday, not least because if that would have happened six months ago, I might have been in the thick of what was going on. Westminster Bridge [...]

Agenda’s, propaganda and Arsenal

By |March 21st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Rant|0 Comments

We're only two days in to this particular Interlull and whilst I still haven't decided if not having Arsenal play this weekend is a good thing or not - given the way we have been playing - I'm already feeling a bit drained with the Arsenal universe that you and I operate within.  It's all [...]

Arsène’s self-awareness

By |March 20th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, History, Rant|0 Comments

After the weekend's debacle and manager's subsequent inevitable denial that his players don't lack effort at the moment, last night we had rumour and counter rumour with regards to Arsène's future. Usually at this time of the year it's the build up to the transfer of contractual sagas of the players, but the press have [...]

Arsenal make me numb

By |March 19th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|1 Comment

After the game yesterday I felt angry for about four minutes. I was angry and upset about that performance and I was feeling a little ranty. But by five minutes after the game, I was back to myself and I got on with the rest of my day. I didn't bother looking at Sky Sports [...]
