Who are Arsenal’s best front three?

By |September 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC|2 Comments

Howdy friend, I hope you're good on this Monday, in which we all start our respective working week with a swing in our step after the 4-1 win away t Hull. I'm feeling chipper, although not as much as I'd like to be, on account of a dodgy bit of McDonald's I had on Friday, [...]

Three points, flowing football, finding our stride

By |September 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Three lovely, juicy, delicious points. Don't you just love them?  It doesn't matter who the team is, or how much form they do or don't have, I always have nerves that we're going to bugger up a result. It's funny because if you looked at all of the games Arsenal have played over the last [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

How long before Arsenal social media touts are commonplace?

By |September 16th, 2016|premier league, Rant|2 Comments

Hello again. I don't normally bash out two blogs in a day, but I've been sitting on this particular topic for a couple of days and stewing, so thought "hmm, if only there were some sort of vehicle with which I could express my thoughts so that others may read, give me their opinion and [...]

Has anybody told Arsene?

By |September 16th, 2016|Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Tactics|2 Comments

It's press conference day today, which means hopefully we'll get some answers to questions that have bemused us over the last week, like: What has Xhaka done to you? What is the nature of your relationship with Francis Coquelin? Do you know where Debuchy is? Can you you go the entire press conference without using [...]

Lucas’ background adds a different dimension; Mustafi/Kos needs to click quick

By |September 15th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence|9 Comments

Far be it for me to actively encourage a little bit of schadenfreude on a Thursday morn, but I couldn't help but chuckle at the Spuds result yesterday against Monaco, as they were sucker-punched in to a 2-1 defeat at 'home'. Perhaps it was because of some of the mitigating factors that I experienced on my commute [...]

Bizarre selection decisions rectified against PSG – just

By |September 14th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

How about last night's action for an eventful evening of European football, eh? Where do we even start??? How about pre-game, when the surprise, shock and outrage of Le Boss' team selection left some spiralling into a pit of their own melancholy, whilst others were left simply scratching their heads. After all, the line up [...]

Onus on PSG could be to our advantage on the counter

By |September 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, Match Preview, Tactics|2 Comments

I don't know about you, but when I get towards the end of the season, depending on how Arsenal are playing, it always feels like a bit of a slog when it gets to each match day. That's where the start of the season is always so much more enjoyable, because at this early stage [...]

I want my Arsenal squad rotation cake and eat it

By |September 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Back in Blighty, back on my usual commute to work, but thankfully, also back in to the swing of all things Arsenal and there'll be no time to waste before we're off again, with the small matter of French Champions Paris Saint Germain to contend with. I'd imagine that there will be a presser at [...]

Arsenal’s destination better than journey against Saints

By |September 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

Sometimes the arrival at a destination is more important than the journey. Which is what football feels like sometimes and yesterday was one of those times, as we laboured terribly to a victory over an organised Southampton team who remained disciplined in their shape. Yesterday's game was like a really crappy journey to a holiday [...]
