Season defining game at Wembley

By |April 23rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, soccer, Tactics|0 Comments

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.

By |March 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, soccer|0 Comments

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

By |February 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, History, press conference, soccer|0 Comments

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 [...]

Feathering the nest at international tournaments

By |June 14th, 2016|contracts, finances, Internationals, soccer, Transfers|0 Comments

Having seen the unfancied Italians see off the very much fancied Belgian's last night, my first thoughts (perhaps inevitably) were towards supposed 'big name' players not performing, as well as the hype that surrounds them going in to international tournaments. I find internationals competitions a very strange bubble of football when it comes to players [...]

Give Jack minutes, give Kroos a round of applause

By |June 13th, 2016|internationals, soccer|0 Comments

I had an absolute skinful on Saturday night at a friends BBQ, which was followed yesterday by an all-day football tournament, hence why I wrote off writing anything until this morning. Bt what did I learn from the football I've watched since then? Well, firstly, England have taken up the Spurs'ing mantle. What with bottling [...]

Özil again inspirational in dispatching of Everton

By |October 25th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, soccer, Uncategorised|0 Comments

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 [...]
