The horrible permutations of today’s game; the expectation of tomorrow’s

By |April 22nd, 2017|Arsenal, FA Cup, History|0 Comments

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's FA Cup weekend but as seems to be par for the course these days, we don't play until Sunday. I suppose we'd better get used to it because next season unless something drastic happens in the Premier League, we'll be seeing a lot less Saturday football and a lot more Sunday [...]

Let’s get to Wembley

By |March 11th, 2017|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence, FA Cup, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

Today is about winning. Nothing else would be remotely successful, but equally, at this stage I could not care less how it's done. I just want us to get to Wembley. If it's a functional 'one nil to the Arsenal' then fine. Let's just do it and be done with it. If it's a high [...]

Don’t expect this weekend, but hope for a utopian end of season for Arsenal

Not a lot going on for us today, eh folks? I mean sure, i'll be you're filling your day with all manner of interesting things, but i'd be surprised if they are Arsenal-related thing, what with us not playing until Saturday evening against Liverpool. Me? I'm going to see if you really can get a [...]

An unknown quantity for Arsenal – both who will start for us and Preston themselves

By |January 7th, 2017|Arsenal, FA Cup, Match Preview, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

Howdy howdy folks, hope you're all gravy on a Saturday, looking forward to the good ol' FA Cup fixture tonight? I'm rather excited, I have to say, because Preston is a new ground for me and it's also the first away FA Cup tie i think I've been too. I can't really fully remember if [...]

Welbeck’s timely return, when title aspirations hang on a knife-edge

If results go the way that I'd expect today, by the time we're all singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight, we could have a distance of 12 points to make up on Chelski to win the league before we play Palace tomorrow at 4pm. Sadly, I'm not full enough of Christmas/New Year hope that Stoke [...]

Mixed bag of injury news, as Arsenal start psychological recovery

By |December 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

It's still two days before the team play and quite frankly, the football couldn't come quickly enough, because it hasn't at all felt like a packed schedule so far. We've played one game in about two weeks. So I'm looking forward to seeing how we get on against Palace. Arsène gave an update on the [...]

Screw confidence, Arsenal just need points right now

By |December 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Right then, lads and lasses, time to get back on the wagon after the hour that was the week before last and see if we can get back to winning ways with three points against Tony Pulis' West Brom at home today. Ig won't be easy, it certainly won't be pretty, but any jove, it [...]

No Carroll nightmares please, Arsenal

By |December 3rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

You know that Andy Carroll is going to be resurrected from the walking dead injury list that West Ham have today, right? I mean, you got that memo, didn't you? It was this fixture last year that we dominated for large parts, were two up, before he got himself a hat trick and generally caused Gabriel [...]

Patience against Bournemouth is key for Arsenal

By |November 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victories for Liverpool, City and Chelski yesterday mean that today's game against Bournemouth isn't one that we can really afford to be buggering up this afternoon. Yes, it was hilarious to see Spurs' dreams of going the season unbeaten go down the khazi, but when you look at the table this morning and see that [...]

Arsene rotates and I’m still not happy – hey, i’m human

By |November 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Howdy Gooners, how goes it? Are you feeling good on a Saturday? I had a bit of an unprompted late one, with a beer or two, some rum, a bit of champers and some fine Nepalese food, which was followed by going to bed about 1am watching a programme about all of the crap TV [...]
