I am a commodity, I am a currency, I am an Arsenal fan

Today is Arsène’s press conference and whilst I’d love to be able to be talking about football, I like many season ticket holders, have had the misfortune to receive an email from the club yesterday afternoon about the additional cash they will require me to fork out at the end of the season for the […]

Arsenal: Familiar failings for a fading title bid

By |February 3rd, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

By now you’ve read plenty of match reports, probably seen the game either in the flesh or on TV, you’ve checked your social feeds a few times and you know all about what transpired last night. So there’s no point in me giving you a blow-by-blow account of what happened at home to Southampton. Well, […]

The predictability is more painful than anything else

By |January 25th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, referees|0 Comments

The most galling thing about yesterday’s game against the most morally bankrupt club of all time, was the predictability with which we enabled them to pick up a result, from both the sending off and the goal we conceded.

In the morning as I blogged, I was nervous because of our appalling record against footballs equivalent […]

Fans for a day, Vieira no love Wenger and trolling gets its comeuppance

With another day to go before we line up against Chelski, today is all about looking at others and praying for results to go our way. Most of my family on my Dad’s side are West Ham fans, so is my brother, so they’ve always kind of been my ‘second team’ if there could be […]

Here comes the cavalry

Good ol’ Arsène and his day early pressers. He’s enabled me to talk about the game ahead on Sunday a day early, which is great, because I’ve been dying to sink my teeth in to it. Well, I have been and still am, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be absolutely bricking it come Sunday. 

Anyway, […]

An Alexis precaution and a LANS flavoured cake

By |January 8th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Rant|0 Comments

Arsène delivered an update on the status of the squads health yesterday and, to nobodies surprise, there wasn’t really anything to update. Arteta, Rosicky and Alexis are the closest and none are available for the weekend. The real irritating one from that three is Alexis, but given Arsène mentioned that it was just precautionary, hopefully […]

Sorry Arsenal provide sinful performance against the Saints

By |December 27th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

That, last night, was an utter shameful display from a team who should know better. I don’t even know where to begin this morning. A 4-0 defeat to a mid table team who have already been embarrassed by Liverpool and shown up by the Tiny Totts last weekend, is totally unacceptable. 

Is it the desire of […]

No news isn’t good news when it comes to Alexis and Santi

By |December 4th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Rant|0 Comments

They’ll be a press conference today, so I’ll be fully expecting Arsène to stroll in, put his middle fingers up to the skies and declare that November can kiss his shiny white hide. After injuries and dropped points that really shouldn’t have happened, he’ll be keen to stress that we’re still two from top spot […]

Injuries, ‘easy runs’ and defences – the problems keep coming at Arsenal

By |November 30th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, press conference, Rant|1 Comment

On the face of it, if you consider that we are still just two points from the top of the league, life appears to be not that bad for us. But that is if you ignore some of the clear issues that appear to exist at the club right now. A 1-1 draw against Norwich […]

Seeking solace by finding out about the Arsenal opposition

By |November 28th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Rant, Tactics|0 Comments

Saturday’s without Arsenal are like pies without mash. You can get by, you can even find some enjoyment, but it never quite has the same impact.

That’s what we’re faced with today boys and girls. No mash. Not even a potato. Still, at least it means I can observe the other games happening today and cheer […]
