That United game hurts my brain still

Yesterday I had family over, which was a very fortunate excuse for not blogging, or having anything to do with the existence of Football, if I'm honest with you. I just didn't want the rage of knowing that Arsenal had a massive missed opportunity. And given the fact that the team had enough chances to [...]

Yesterday we hit December, which means I can officially go FULL CHRISTMAS CHEER, starting yesterday with the decorations going up in the house and Home Alone on in the background. I love this time of year. Everyone seems to be much happier. So what I - and by extension you - could really do without, [...]

Questions asked of Arsenal: consistency and momentum

By | 2017-11-28T07:31:40+00:00 November 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

With such a quick turnaround time in between Premier League games this week, it feels like this is the period of the season in which Arsène's squad is tested to its limits for the first time, as the manager needs to make some decisions on how he rotated his squad differently to the usual 'Team [...]

Last gasp deliciousness for Arsenal at Burnley

Is there anything quite like a last-gasp winner in a football match? Is there anything as delicious as knowing your team has scored with so little time for the opposition to respond, that even though your club specialises in brain farts from time-to-time, you know there will be no way back for the opponent? If [...]

Moaning y'all and welcome to Sunday match day, a day in which we once again travel away to a tough ground to try to pick up three points against an in form team, in the shape of Burnley. This'll be a tough one today. Burnley are an established Premier League side under Dyche but more [...]

Happy Saturday y'all. Hope you're coping without The Arsenal? Me - I'm going to go and watch Justice League with The Management and then follow it up by having myself a Chiquitoes, the most exciting part of which is definitely the Admiral Old J they have in stock in my local restaurant. Football takes a [...]

Happy despite an Arsenal defeat – feels weird

I don't know about you but last night's game against FC Köln felt weird. It was weird because we lost, yet ultimately there was relief, because we still topped the group to ensure that the game against BATE in a couple of weeks is as meaningless as it would have been had we won or [...]

Options for Arsenal on ‘Match Day B’ vs Koln

Match day today, although given it's featuring an Arsenal B team, perhaps games like the one this evening against F.C. Koln should be renamed 'Match Day B'? It's a curious one, is today's game, because we're up against a German side who are on their own turf. It's also a team who gave us a [...]
