A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

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

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. [...]

How long before Arsenal social media touts are commonplace?

By |September 16th, 2016|premier league, Rant|2 Comments

Hello again. I don't normally bash out two blogs in a day, but I've been sitting on this particular topic for a couple of days and stewing, so thought "hmm, if only there were some sort of vehicle with which I could express my thoughts so that others may read, give me their opinion and [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

By |August 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, History, premier league, Rant, Transfers|7 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

Campbell was never going to make it, but we’ve still got a week of ‘what if’

By |August 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, Rant, Transfers|5 Comments

It's Monday morning, I'm sat on a Met Line train heading towards London in a three piece suit, and it's muggy and uncomfortable as you like.  I'm tired. I feel bedraggled and already I feel like this day is going south. Feels a bit like Arsenal at the moment, eh? We look a little bedraggled [...]

You’re either a happy or infuriated gooner this morning

Depending on what you choose to read, who you choose to follow and when you choose to do either, you were either very excited, very disappointed, or just very confused yesterday. All of the signs over the weekend seemed to have pointed towards an imminent arrival of Shokran Mustafi by the middle of this week, [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

By |August 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]
