Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

By | 2017-10-11T07:23:00+00:00 October 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, injuries, Internationals, soccer|0 Comments

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]

Drax Link’s back, whilst Lucas still knocks around

It's difficult to start with football this morning, given that more people have now lost their lives in a supposed religious related attack that quite frankly, should have no place in modern society. I don't think anybodies god will welcome them with open arms after they have murdered innocents. It seems a little callous to [...]

A lovely weekend for Gooners, despite Alexis situation

By | 2017-08-13T09:07:59+00:00 August 13th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, soccer|0 Comments

This is shaping up to be quite the weekend, football results wise, eh?  I decided to go for a long run yesterday afternoon and when I started my run I switched the radio on via my phone and started to jog just as Liverpool went 3-2 up. I thought "screw this, last thing I want [...]

Giroud’s worth proven In bonkers game

Well that was just flipping bizarre. How do you analyse that game last night? How can you make any kind of assessment that makes any kind of sense of what transpired yesterday evening, then use it to work out whether we're basically in the sh*t this season, or whether we'll be alright? I guess the [...]

Japanese Gooners – what’s happened to Ryo and Takuma?

Happy Sunday and happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. May you be gifted with pieces of paper with writing scrawled on it. And beer. Or wine.  I'm in the sunny West of France with the in-laws, having spent the weekend relaxing, and with the total lack of interesting Arsenal related news I [...]

General election vs transfer window: it’s all a load of…

Howdy Thursday, where have you been? I've been expecting you earlier than this, but no matter now, you're here and that's all that we need worry about. Of course no offence, but you're not Friday or Saturday, which are better days it has to be said. In the U.K. It's Election Day. Snap election at [...]

Keep on basking, Gooners

The great thing about having the FA Cup final after the season has finished, is that we all get to prolong the basking a little bit longer and we get to have some positive memories to take away with us, for which I am rather glad you know. I'm still revelling in that display and [...]

Season defining game at Wembley

I'm sure I'm not alone in breathing a collective sigh of relief at what happened yesterday at Wembley. The fact that everyone has been speculating in the media on a possible Tottenham match towards a double has left a horrible taste in the mouth and a churning of the stomach. So when the final whistle [...]

77 for Arsenal. That’s what’s needed.

Morning. You alright? Recovered from the fact that the only English team left in this competition is Leicester? A Leicester with whom everyone seems to have dismissed their domestic discrepancies and focused on their 'plucky' assault on the Champions League. Honestly. I can't work out whether it's patronising more to the actual Leicester fans or [...]

Take Eek over Apathy with new Arsenal manager

Morning. I've woken up to a feeling that I thought I wouldn't get for at least another couple of days. I'm over the Bayern defeat already.  Perhaps it's because I always knew we weren't good enough. Perhaps it's because I vented my spleen on my blog yesterday. Perhaps I'm just so bored with Arsenal I [...]
