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 

By |April 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, Tactics|1 Comment

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 |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 |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.

By |March 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

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

By |March 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, History, Internationals|2 Comments

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 [...]

Xhaka can be a fulcrum in this team

By |March 24th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Ownership and the board, Tactics|4 Comments

Happy Friday friends. Hope you are well? Let's talk about Xhaka, shall we? After all, he's been talking to the press in Germany, which has handily been transcribed by the good people over at Arseblog News. The article makes for quite interesting reading actually. I really like Xhaka. He comes across as open and honest, [...]

Arsenal engage ‘PR transfer war chest’ mode

By |March 22nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History|0 Comments

Arsène has apparently jetted off to France to 'consider his future', if you believe the noises by the gutter press, from yesterday. Apparently he wants to see if fans will tolerate another two years, so is assessing the gauge of sentiment, I read somewhere. I do love a bit of media revisionism you know. When [...]

Agenda’s, propaganda and Arsenal

By |March 21st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Rant|0 Comments

We're only two days in to this particular Interlull and whilst I still haven't decided if not having Arsenal play this weekend is a good thing or not - given the way we have been playing - I'm already feeling a bit drained with the Arsenal universe that you and I operate within.  It's all [...]
