Squad rotation: Wenger be like…

By |December 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners|0 Comments

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but my journey to and from work swings me by Wembley Park and yesterday, it was unusually busy. It was only after almost everyone got off at the national stadium that I realised that the Spuds were having a leaving party! Apparently there were a few empty [...]

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 [...]

Arsène needs to settle on a style soon

By |November 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

We had Hector sign his deal recently, then yesterday all the noise coming out of the club centred around Emi Martinez signing his agreement to stay at the club for an extended period. It's clear that those at the club who matter rate him quite highly, but I always find these types of deals for [...]

Tactical insight from Arsène

By |November 21st, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Monday's are rubbish. They're especially rubbish when you don't quite feel 100% and after a weekend of being slightly under the weather, I already feel a little worn down because of feeling a bit offish. Still, at least we don't have to wait long before we see The Arsenal again. It's a home game to [...]

Arsène: don’t gamble, just win

By |November 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

As expected, Arsène addressed the media ahead of this weekend on Thursday rather than Friday, with the team travelling oop norf today at some stage. No doubt Alexis will be with them, having told Le Boss that he's ok via text. Ahh texting, remember that? The thing that we all used to do before Whatsapp, [...]

International ranty gooner

By |November 12th, 2016|Arsene Wenger, friendly, gooners, injuries, Internationals, Rant|2 Comments

I hate the international break so much. From an Arsenal fans perspective, nothing ever good comes out of the players disappearing for national team duty, so I detest it with every fibre of my being. With just cause too, I might add, because I also live on the outskirts of London and so have to [...]

International curse striking with Bellerin now

By |November 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

So by the sounds of it, this international break is already starting to claim Arsenal players for its own, after Hector Bellerin was rumoured to be out for at least the next month with an ankle injury. To be fair to the Spanish under-21 team, it does appear as though the knock was sustained during the [...]

Arsene saves us all with an early presser

By |October 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Gunners, Internationals, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A Thursday morning press conference before a Saturday 3pm game? It's almost as if Arsene was as bored with the international break, so decided to drop a line to the press team to bring forward the presser by his normal Friday morning job, just so he could put this dreaded period behind him snd save [...]

Santi’s words to youngsters could be given to Arsène

We're nearly there folks. The interlull is nearly behind us and I don't know why, but this one has felt waaaaaay longer than the last few. It's like we're being punished for finally seeing an Arsenal side click - Burnley aside - after about a year and a half.  The reality is probably more to [...]

Arsenal finances are all financy, Arsene’s coy on England, but not on Theo

By |October 1st, 2016|Arsene Wenger, finances, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Happy Saturday to you my friend. It's an Arsenal free Saturday for us, which means you're probably doing all manner of interesting things. Me? I'm cleaning my house, taking things to the dump and finally going to the next town over to work out why a Building Society i've never transacted with, keeps sending me [...]
