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 [...]

Arsenal are not under the radar any more

I knew it wouldn't last you know. It simply couldn't. There was only so much time that could elapse before people started to realise. There was only so long that people would spend salivating and frothing at the mouth over the two Manchester clubs, before they started to pay attention to teams like ours. I [...]

Dominance at Sunderland, with all of the squad showing form

By |October 30th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league, referees|1 Comment

I can tell you this right now - going for afternoon cakes in house of Sunderland supporters after your team has just put them to the sword by four goals to one - is definitely more preferable than doing it when the result is not in one's favour. Having spoken to The Management's family about [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Team balance and dynamic good for Watford win

By |August 28th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to writing this blog today. Having spent a large part of the summer in the transfer doldrums, then seeing our start to the season completely disrupted by injuries and the failure to adequately prepare for the season openers, the tone of my writing hasn't been [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

Liverpool’s new signings to bed in – we don’t have that problem!!

By |August 14th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Oh match day, how I have missed thee, let me count the ways.... ...loads. Like, literally, loads. It's the first one of the season for us and, having seen the mighty Champions in Leicester - they know who they are and they reminded us yesterday in their chants - lose to Hull, whilst Everton drew [...]
