We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

By |February 27th, 2017|analogy, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|3 Comments

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

Abject Arsenal players are a disgrace to the shirt

I am appalled. I am appalled at the travesty of a performance that we witnessed yesterday. In Championship Manager they used to have a saying which involved describing you team as 'running out of superlatives to describe'. What is the exact opposite of that? What is the antithesis of running out of nice things to [...]

Cech, clickbaiting and Arsène

By |February 10th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

To get my football fix every day, I usually have a quick peruse of a number of sites, including Sky Sports. But over the years the number of sites that i 'trust' to deliver information that isn't clickbaity has diminished. So can you imagine my disappointment when a non-Arsenal fan came to me in the [...]

Out of the Arsenal woodwork

I know for the last few days I've been talking about wanting change and the predictability of Arsenal's latest season petering out, but I feel like I've noticed something that's a little different from the press, which is the increased volume of 'who replaces Wenger?' articles that appear to be swilling around. I don't know [...]

False hope and football evolution

By |February 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

You still reeling? Or are you a stage  ahead of me in our title challenge and are now in the 'acceptance' phase that probably, in reality, the title was never on. Damn Leicester, eh? Damn them not because they lost to United yesterday, but because they sewed a seed of hope in pretty much every [...]

Boring boring Arsenal

I don't even know where to begin this morning. In fact, I almost don't want to begin, because after what I witnessed yesterday the malaise I have over the football club I love and support has almost completely enveloped me. I'm even at the stage where I've thought to myself that whilst the title was [...]

Arsène doesn’t help himself

By |February 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I'm still struggling to properly rectify the decision-making of the manager this morning, after the debacle that was Tuesday night, but not really because of his team selection.  As I said yesterday, I could kind of understand why Giroud might start, but in hindsight he should have stuck with a pacey front three to unsettle [...]

Özil’s manager smokescreen?

Might be a shorter one than usual from me today, because my journey is somewhat staggered into about four stages, thanks to the wonderful people at RMT and other public transport network unions. I think they're all after velvet cushions for which to place their drivers derrières. That or more money. That's what it's usually [...]

First gooner to the bus makes the squad for Preston

At lunchtime yesterday I decided to go for a walk and as is the culture these days, I thought I'd take along my smartphone and spend most of the time walking blind whilst staring into the rectangular blue light that is my handheld device. What I was looking for, I'm not entirely certain, perhaps some [...]

That numbing feeling of a missed opportunity for Arsenal

By |January 5th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Having seen the score of the Totts against the Chavs game last night, I find myself this morning in a similar position to that of yesterday morning, after we were all licking our wounds post the Bournemouth game. On the one hand this is good for us; it means the gap between us an top [...]
