Özil again inspirational in dispatching of Everton

Well now, none of us truly believed that a game at home against Everton, did we? I mean this is The Arsenal, we never make it easy for ourselves, so we were always going to have a bit of nail biting that needed to be done.  It was a cagey affair from the off. From [...]

Majestic Mesut, awesome Aaron and super Sanchez down Watford

By |October 18th, 2015|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, soccer|0 Comments

Well didn't that all go according to plan, eh?  As I suspected yesterday, Watford approached the game with the caution and solidity that you'd expect from a newly promoted side with a reputation building for compact defending and long balls to bring out of defence, so perhaps it was inevitable that the first half was [...]

Rambo to find scoring form with scrappy back posters at Arsenal?

By |October 14th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, soccer|0 Comments

Seems I jumped the proverbial gun yesterday with regards to the end of the international break, but thankfully now we all know that  the dreaded 'interlull' is behind us after last nights matches, we can start to worry fully about who will play against Watford and what form they will come into the game on. [...]

Arsène ‘The Deceiver’? Do me a favour

Ahh Friday. Full of promise of a weekend of enjoyment, full of Arsenal and everything a home 3pm Saturday afternoon kick off and full of fallout from an Arsène Wenger press conference. For it is he, the man with which so much irritation appears to be directed, who has caused much consternation amongst some Arsenal [...]

Time flies for Arteta, who needs games to show he’s still got it

By |September 10th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, injuries, midfield, premier league, soccer|4 Comments

Doesn't time fly when you're having fun, eh? This particular phrase has definitely struck a chord with me this morning, as I find myself back on the Metropolitan line train and slowly ambling myself towards my grey prison in central London for my first day back to work after a break in the sun. I [...]

My Champions League tips, as Per flags down a bus

Forget hyperbole of Wayne Rooney being 'back' after he scored a hat trick against an underwhelming Club Brugge yesterday evening, today is all about the Group Stage proper and finding out who we'll see rocking up at the Emirates from Seltember. We're in Pot 2, which means that we'll certainly not face Real Madrid, Porto, [...]

Play Walcott and don't go back to square one

With Chelski and City both picking up the wins that I expected they would yesterday, it adds a wee bit more pressure on us to perform this evening against a Liverpool team who will be buoyed by their own results, if not the way in which they played in those games. Liverpool represent a serious [...]

Hoping Welbeck doesn't go full Rosicky with his injury

Last night I woke up just before midnight to the most brain-stabbingly painful headache at the back of my bonce, I thought my head was going to explode like I was on the Mars surface in Total Recall. I suspect it was just my body rejecting the 6,624,253rd rumour about Benzema signing. There's only so [...]

Victoria Concordia Crescit – never been more applicable than now

The official dot com site must be as excited about the return to football as us lot, because despite the fact that Arsène's presser isn't until a little later this morning, we have a veritable smorgasbord of stories to pour over before Le Boss even takes centre stage. Thankfully, they're all positive, unlike the news on [...]

a jolly Mr Positive is enjoying seeing competition at Arsenal breeding winners

Rafa Benitez is obviously a little worried that Karim Benzema's head is going to be turned by the mighty Arsenal. It's the only explanation for the repeated denials that he's going nowhere. But you know Rafa, as Arsène used to find out, sometimes it's better to let an unhappy player go elsewhere to fulfil his [...]
