Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Defensive rotation at Arsenal – but are they ready?

Last night as Wales' World Cup Qualifying campaign drew to a close I spared a thought for poor ol' Aaron Ramsey. A good player who should probably be somebody who gets to showcase his skills at a World Cup finals, was denied victory by the reprobate that is James McClean, a player who I think [...]

My eyes hurt. Please just win, Arsenal.

Ahh man I feel roughered this morning. That's rough and knackered combined, kids. I had many a drink last night and at 2am remembered that the broadcasting companies have ruined football with their ridiculous kick offs. And now I'm not appreciating the karaoke I did in my kitchen with my mates. Not even in the [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

Predicting Arsenal’s line up against Borisov – your guess as good as mine

By | 2017-09-28T07:36:04+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

It's a trip to Belarus this evening for Arsène Wenger and his charges, as Arsenal line up against BATE Borisov and I think it's fair to say that with all the will in the world, this isn't a game in which we should be seeing too many players who will play on Sunday at noon. [...]

Laca looks ‘Wrighty’, Alexis looks too individual against Baggies

A win to set the week off is always a good thing. A win with a clean sheet is also very delightful. A win I. Which your star striker bags a brace is also something to savour. So on a relatively balmy night in North London yesterday evening, I'm pleased that it's just what was [...]

Discipline, organisation and positives: Arsenal vs Chelski

Well how about that for a turn up for the books?  Away from home. To Chelski. Game management.  A modern day Arsène Wenger team performance. Sure, it wasn't the victory we craved but hey, there was enough in that 0-0 at Stamford Bridge to suggest that actually when their heads are screwed on, this Arsenal [...]

Press all over the pitch against Chelski, Arsenal

Welcome to the worst day of the season: the Annual Defeat to Chelski-a-thon, in which we all think that surely probability will eventually work in our favour and we might actually get a win, but then we realise that the same fate will befall us that has befallen us many times before.  It's safe to [...]

A disjointed Arsenal victory against Cologne

By | 2017-09-15T08:16:31+00:00 September 15th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Tactics|1 Comment

Before one delves in to the why's and wherefore's of yesterday's victory against Cologne, I suppose the most important thing to note is that Arsenal did indeed get the victory we needed, in the end. But by golly, wasn't it hard going for us, eh?  The night started off pretty grim before kick off anyway, [...]

More fun at The Emirates – because of the high press

I don't know about you folks, but I thorough;y enjoyed watching yesterday's game against Bournemouth, pretty much from start to finish. Don't get me wrong, I was nervous and much like the crowd and its hushed tones up until the second goal went in I was feeling like we could easily eff it all up, [...]
