What does Wenger have to do?

As I made my usual walk towards Uxbridge tube station this morning I started to think about Arsène and how much he has fallen from the pedestal that I put him on in my mind. I started to think about how a man who I once hoped could manage us forever, is now a guy [...]

Ollie G needs big name competition for his place

How about Ollie G and that goal last night, eh? I don't usually bother with international football, but given that one match was distilled in to two brilliant moments for Arsenal fans - a great strike from our centre forward and a total howler from the Spurs keeper, I was happy to see my Twitter timeline filled [...]

Insulting the intelligence of Arsenal fans

Well here we go then folks. We're now in to the transfer 'silly season' and no sooner is the ink beginning to dry on the contract of Arsène's new deal, than we're getting snippets of information to get fans all worked up and excitable that we're 'going big' this year. It was L'Equipe yesterday evening [...]

Floating debris season, so transfer guff is becoming interesting

I want to say 'no real favours done for us again' on yesterday's results, but the reality is that we didn't really have an team around us to be too concerned with right now. City are disappearing off in to the difference, the scummy lot round the corner have already gone, whilst Liverpool and United [...]

Arsenal + Alexis = cash, Arsenal + Arsène = rented season tickets

Happy Easter Saturday. I spent my Good Friday playing Monopoly with no beer, rum or wine, so I am certainly ready for a little tipple later. And on Sunday. And most definitely on Monday, the day in which Arsenal are at Middlesbrough, who everyone is saying won't give us any problems on their own patch. [...]

Palace – Arsenal players’ silent revolt

As I listened to the chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" from our fans at the Palace ground in the away end, I asked the question to Ben - who has become somewhat of an Arsenal therapist in the last couple of seasons - is it me or is this like the [...]

Arsenal and ‘representative samples’

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:05+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Ownership and the board, Rant|4 Comments

Well, the AST seem to have caused somewhat of a debate in the Arsenal universe with their poll, haven't they? Of the poll they did of their members, which they have 1,000 and 424 responded, 80% of fans said they wanted Wenger gone. Which then led to the inevitable sensationalist headlines from the media claiming [...]

Arsène dusts off his PR templates for presser

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:05+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

There were some rumours earlier in the week that Arsène or Arsenal might make some sort of announcement on his future, most likely that he will be staying, but as seems to be par for the course these days, Arsène went in to PR template more when asked any kind of difficult question. Even when [...]

Thierry won’t happen. Yet.

On Sunday I saw the reports about Thierry Henry and the rumoured interest in him to be the next Arsenal manager, with bookies slashing the odds, seemingly overnight. I thought about writing about it yesterday as some sort of footnote, but didn't bother because I thought it would be just one of the gutter press' [...]

A week off from Arsenal just the ticket

Happy Saturday folks. It's a Saturday in which London is bathed in a bit of sun today, so I intend on making the most of it, probably by staying in and watching TV or by going swimming in the indoor pool in Uxbridge. Yep, that's the British way, dontcha know. The Arsenal Way has essentially [...]
