Jack’s the right gamble Noble could never be

By |May 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, friendly, injuries, Internationals, Rant|18 Comments

With the domestic football season now winding down to its conclusion, we're left with just the scraps of international friendlies to spend our time talking about, which is never ideal.  On Saturday I went for a nine mile hike across Box Hill in Surrey and I spent a bit of time with a Chelski fan [...]

Arsenal upsetting the narrative apple cart 

By |May 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

As the immediate euphoria of the hilarity of finishing about the Tiny Totts begand to die away yesterday afternoon whilst at work, I started to search out unread articles from journalists, surely backtracking on the inevitable 'North London Power Shift' rhetoric that had been gathering momentum in the last few weeks. I thought it might [...]

What difference does Arsenal’s league position make?

I don't seem to recall there being as much build up to the last game at Highbury, as there was yesterday, when West Ham bottled United off the pitch and United bottled it on it. And yes, i know  that there's probably a billion othe people who have used that one, but I don't regret [...]

Nearly there *sigh* – the performance against City showed it

By |May 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league, Rant|2 Comments

What a wonderful weekend of weather we had in England, particularly yesterday, which is the real positives I took from my first Sunday of May. It made the lethargic performance of our Arsenal team all the more palatable, I must say, as it truly does now look like the players are wanting to get this [...]

My Arsenal myopia is not agenda driven

By |May 4th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, premier league, Rant|2 Comments

Is it symptomatic of modern day Arsenal, that the club are currently running a story about the fact the goal against Norwich, involved a passage of sustained possession which led to Welbeck's good finish? I get that it's lovely to see that sort of action when it comes off, but on a day where media [...]

It can be done. But can it be done at Arsenal right now?

By |May 3rd, 2016|analysis, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

So there we have it. Leicester City are Premier League champions. Weird, huh? There's plenty of football fans saying that you have to be pleased for them, that this isn't something that happens in the era of big money football, so we should all be rejoicing in what Leicester have achieved. Whilst I too must [...]

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?

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 [...]
