Change across more than management a good thing at Arsenal?

By |March 9th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Morning. Hope your Wednesday was better than it started and today is better than yesterday. Football certainly hasn't helped of late, so I've been engaging in other activities, like watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and pretending I was seven again. I'll ignore the fact the movie was terrible. It brought me back to my childhood. [...]

The ageing Arsenal boxer – it’s sad

By |March 8th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

I don't really know what to say. I don't think there's anything that I can say that would either soothe my own soul when it comes to Arsenal, or offer any words of consolation or positivity to you, because I have none for myself. Arsenal Football Club looks like it's on its knees at the [...]

The copy/paste blog from the last few seasons?

By |March 7th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|0 Comments

I don't really know where to begin today. This is the first time where I've had a pre-match blog and can't really think of anything remotely useful to say. Half of me thought about finding my pre match blog from the season before last, or the one before that, and doing a 'copy/paste' job. But [...]

Alexis saga is another PR disaster

By |March 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Rant|1 Comment

As if Arsenal didn't seem like it was in enough disarray on the football pitch this weekend, we now find out just how much disarray away from the cameras there is, with the news filtering out that the real reason Alexis wasn't playing was because of a training ground bust up last week. We're a [...]

A weary Arsenal fans blog

By |March 5th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant|9 Comments

What can be said this morning that hasn't already been said repeatedly of late? I almost don't want to bother writing today's blog. The analysis will sound alarmingly familiar and my tone will be as weary as an Arsenal fan could feel this morning. I'm tired of this. I'm tired of seeing this Arsenal team [...]

Arsenal must counter Liverpool’s high press

By |March 4th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

This will be a really tough game today. Mark my words. Don't believe anything you read that suggests that Liverpool's woeful 2017 form will give us hope, because I certainly am not and I fully expect them to be more up for it, than ever before. I watched the Liverpool/Tottenham game at Anfield a couple [...]

We need an answer from Wenger and the team

By |March 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we finally got a bit of news to chew on yesterday, with Arsène assuming the usual position in front of the furry mics and talking ahead of the game on Saturday. And unsurprisingly, most of the chitter-chatter centred around his contract, to which he also (unsurprisingly) batted away and gave no real indication on [...]

Arsenal content zombies

By |March 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners|0 Comments

Man, it's early. I've got a busy day at work today, which means I have to get the zombie train at 6.15 this morning, filled with all manner of the walking/sleeping dead. To be fair I'm squarely in that camp, although I am using the medium of this blog to try to form some cognicent [...]

Sell Alexis?

By |March 1st, 2017|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, Tactics|2 Comments

Following my blog yesterday about how Arsenal haven't really adopted the counter attack properly in years, I thought I'd offer a somewhat controversial opinion as a solution, which I've been thinking about following the stories emerging about Alexis wanting to head back to Spain. Firstly, why he'd want to go back to a country who [...]
