We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

By |February 27th, 2017|analogy, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|3 Comments

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

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 [...]

What Wembley means; Lucas takes on Arsène’s hierarchy

This is a weird old time at the moment. Weird because we have a week and a half without the Arsenal, but because it isn't an interlull, every other fan of a team is counting down the days until the weekend and seeing their team play, so we just have to sort of twiddle our [...]

Out of the Arsenal woodwork

I know for the last few days I've been talking about wanting change and the predictability of Arsenal's latest season petering out, but I feel like I've noticed something that's a little different from the press, which is the increased volume of 'who replaces Wenger?' articles that appear to be swilling around. I don't know [...]

False hope and football evolution

By |February 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

You still reeling? Or are you a stage  ahead of me in our title challenge and are now in the 'acceptance' phase that probably, in reality, the title was never on. Damn Leicester, eh? Damn them not because they lost to United yesterday, but because they sewed a seed of hope in pretty much every [...]

Boring boring Arsenal

I don't even know where to begin this morning. In fact, I almost don't want to begin, because after what I witnessed yesterday the malaise I have over the football club I love and support has almost completely enveloped me. I'm even at the stage where I've thought to myself that whilst the title was [...]

Arsène doesn’t help himself

I'm still struggling to properly rectify the decision-making of the manager this morning, after the debacle that was Tuesday night, but not really because of his team selection.  As I said yesterday, I could kind of understand why Giroud might start, but in hindsight he should have stuck with a pacey front three to unsettle [...]

That numbing feeling of a missed opportunity for Arsenal

By |January 5th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Having seen the score of the Totts against the Chavs game last night, I find myself this morning in a similar position to that of yesterday morning, after we were all licking our wounds post the Bournemouth game. On the one hand this is good for us; it means the gap between us an top [...]

An ever-increasing appreciation for Giroud

I like Ollie G. I think I'm even appreciating him more now that we have an option in Alexis that has been so good at times this season. He's finally found a place in the team which, whilst probably not as much fun for him, works well for us as a squad.  So I'm pleased [...]

We all know the catalyst

Happy Wednesday to you. Hope it's a good one where you are. Me, I've still got a couple more days of work to go before the festivities can commence, so I'm still in work mode unfortunately. What I am doing though, is starting the process of eating like an absolute glutton, which means plenty of [...]
