Adams is old – I feel it; Elneny to force his way in?

By |November 29th, 2016|Arsenal FC, History, League Cup, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

Today Tony Adams hits the grand old age of 50 and I've got to tell you, it makes me feel old, because I vividly remember him as the rock of our defence, so to here him hit his half century makes me feel a little bit worn. I remember him charging through the middle of [...]

Bournemouth: Hard to find praise or fault – but result is a result

By |November 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I found yesterday's game a strange one to digest and think about, in terms of formulating some post-match blog thoughts for this Monday morning. Strange because whilst we got the job done by getting the three points, we weren't convincing at all in patches, but by the same token I didn't think Bournemouth were that [...]

Patience against Bournemouth is key for Arsenal

By |November 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victories for Liverpool, City and Chelski yesterday mean that today's game against Bournemouth isn't one that we can really afford to be buggering up this afternoon. Yes, it was hilarious to see Spurs' dreams of going the season unbeaten go down the khazi, but when you look at the table this morning and see that [...]

Arsene rotates and I’m still not happy – hey, i’m human

By |November 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Howdy Gooners, how goes it? Are you feeling good on a Saturday? I had a bit of an unprompted late one, with a beer or two, some rum, a bit of champers and some fine Nepalese food, which was followed by going to bed about 1am watching a programme about all of the crap TV [...]

Arsène needs to settle on a style soon

By |November 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

We had Hector sign his deal recently, then yesterday all the noise coming out of the club centred around Emi Martinez signing his agreement to stay at the club for an extended period. It's clear that those at the club who matter rate him quite highly, but I always find these types of deals for [...]

PSG – Arsène can’t put the player puzzles together again

By |November 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Rant|1 Comment

Ok folks, we clearly have a wee bit of an issue now, because for something like the fourth game in a row I saw an Arsenal side who didn't really click at all. And it's starting to worry me.  Middlesbrough at home, Sunderland away for the most part (until we turned the after burners on [...]

A balanced midfield and top spot required tonight

By |November 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

Happy match day fellow gooners. It's a match day with a buffer. I like those kind of match days. I like buffers.  The buffer I of course refer to is one which is psychological, because unlike that lot from the wrong end of the Seven Sisters Road, we have qualified from our group and face [...]

Hector Beller inks – another statement from the club

By |November 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, contracts, Defence, gooners, Gunners|0 Comments

Ahh, that sweet, sweet smell of fresh ink on a key Arsenal players contract. Smells good, doesn't it? I know we're all waiting with baited breath on Özil and Alexis to commit their long futures to the club, but the fact that Hector Bellerin has also put pay to the rumours that both City and [...]

Tactical insight from Arsène

By |November 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Monday's are rubbish. They're especially rubbish when you don't quite feel 100% and after a weekend of being slightly under the weather, I already feel a little worn down because of feeling a bit offish. Still, at least we don't have to wait long before we see The Arsenal again. It's a home game to [...]
