Özil’s megabucks deal; Basel pre match thoughts 

By |September 28th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield|0 Comments

There are two major discussion points for me today and thankfully, neither of them involve Sam Allardyce! Firstly, the news filtering from a German Journo Henning Feindt, that Mesut Özil has signed a new deal and will wear the number 10 shirt. The journo in question wasn't exactly explicit on when Özil will occupy the [...]

I’ll have a crack at England and Jenko can have a crack at Arsenal

Did a bit of scouting on our opponents for Sunday last night. Well, I say 'scouting', but actually I just sat on the sofa, ate fried chicken, whilst Burnley beat Watford. What I learnt was: Burnley have a decent dead ball taker in Steven Defour They like a headed goal Insightful stuff, I know, and [...]

How far can this Arsenal team go?

By |September 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|0 Comments

Ok, I'm going to call 'bloggers privilege' with this, because I've asked a question to which I have absolutely no idea on what the answer is, but it's a question I've been asking myself for the last 24 hours since our rout of Chelski on Saturday evening. The performance against that lot was so convincing, [...]

Arsenal are getting their swagger back

By |September 25th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Morning! Isn't it a rather splendid one today, eh? A rather happy, joyous and delightful Sunday is to be had for all Arsenal fans, methinks. That's what you get from an absolutely barnstorming performance by the team against a side with whom we've had some real problems in seasons past. I must admit, I didn't [...]

Unwanted Chelski record needs to go today, please

Hello friends, welcome to Saturday and if you’re in the UK, what a wonderful day it seems to be at the moment. The sun is shining, it’s due to be 24 degrees in North London and for all intents and purposes, it’s probably the last of what I call the ‘summer fixtures’ before we hit [...]

An unholy alliance before the most unholy of teams comes to the Emirates

Happy Friday one and all and it's a day closer to the old Saturday showdown against the most horrific excuse for a football team tomorrow, those racists from Chelsea, oh what a joy. More on the unspeakable evil that will descend upon North London when the team, management and detestable fans visit The Emirates tomorrow. [...]

Experience shouldn’t beget complacency against Forest

By |September 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

It's a late one from me today, and probably a short one too, for I am not a well man. With about two hours worth of sleep, punctuated the whole time by needing to head to the loo, I feel like a bit of a shell of a person, so I may have to call [...]

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 [...]
