No fire sale, no league and no Hennessey up top – Arsene’s presser

By |April 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

Saturday's without football are like a car without wheels; fairly redundant and not exactly the most fun in the world. Today I'm going to see a mortgage adviser, get my hair cut, going for a run and then going to see my nan in hospital. I hate hospitals. But then I think about Abou and [...]

Arsenal revisionism

By |April 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Oh gawd. That Liverpool result last night, eh? Cue the media hyperbole and fallacy of 'special night at Anfield' rubbish. Cue the banners like that uber-cringe one that says Anfield is not in England, it is its own country. Cue talk of a historic team who defy the odds and are more special than any [...]

Özil smearing egg on some faces

By |April 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

Mesut Özil is up for PFA player of the year. He's amongst a shortlist of five or six people - I didn't bother checking in much detail because I heard the only name I wanted to hear yesterday and his name was Mesut - and that he has made this list, I think is a [...]

Permutations. Damn those permutations

By |April 13th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, Rant|3 Comments

Yesterday I spent a bit of time on the blog talking about the fact that I'm not sure that there's much to play for this season. I speculated that we might see a little bit of experimentation as we have little to play for. But as Moneychester City glided past PSG to reach the Champions [...]

What does the rest of the season mean for you?

By |April 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Tactics|4 Comments

Genuine question there that I'd love to get some comments on from anybody tuning in today. We've had the Champions League come and go (which to be honest most of us must have thought that would happen anyway after the draw), we've seen a chance for FA Cup glory melt away after a lacklustre home [...]

Changing the only constant left at The Arsenal

By |April 11th, 2016|analogy, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|6 Comments

As I watched the conclusion of The Masters yesterday, I took some comfort in the fact that as it turns out, it's not just Arsenal that choke under pressure in sport. Jordan Spieth, world number two and man who has controlled the entire competition, had a complete meltdown whilst cruising in front and allowed Britain Danny [...]

A very Arsenal implosion against West Ham

By |April 10th, 2016|analysis, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|0 Comments

So today we all wake up after Arsenal's title dreams unofficially died against West ham at Upton Park. Unlike Highbury, there was to be no 'last London derby game at ground' revenge we could extract on a very well organised West Ham team. Well, they were well organised for the second half, anyway. Because at [...]

West Ham away: keep the flicker of hope alive, Arsenal

By |April 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

An early kick off today means that in but a few hours, we will know if Arsenal's league title fate is all but over, or still flickering with life. A trip to Upton Park has rarely been so daunting: West Ham have dispatched nearly all of the top teams in the Premier League at home, [...]

Can I ask Arsène a question?

By |April 8th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

I've had my issues with Arsène Wenger this season, but that doesn't still mean I don't support him as the manager of the team, and therefore don't want to hear some of his insight and tactical approach ahead of what is possibly the biggest game we've played against West Ham since I don't know when.
