Xhaka on board – kudos to the club

By |May 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, midfield|1 Comment

So after a week of talking about it amongst the fans, the worst kept transfer secret was announced yesterday, with the club Twitter feed clearly making light of it by saying "ok, we'll announce Xhaka", which I have to applaud I must say. I'm sure it was a little bit irritating for the club to [...]

‘Say nice things about Rosicky’ Week

By |May 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries|0 Comments

Has there ever been a more obvious potential 'Axis of Evil' than Jose Mourinho and Man United? A team who have had success for decades, who have also built up a cynical side and who's corporate juggernaut status and commercial emphasis, with the Jack the Ripper of modern day football?  So it seems that may [...]

Arsene’s margins are fine re: contract; players WILL come in during the summer

By |May 14th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well then, what shall we talk about today, then? Maybe what Arsene said during his presser yesterday? Oh, alright then. Team news is that Mesut is back and after looking like he was going to smash Henry's record, he still needs two more assists just to equal it. It's not been from the want of [...]

Poor old Ox, as I think Arsene’s looking up top

By |May 7th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Let's start today's blog by extending a little bit of sympathy to The Ox, as Arsene surprisingly confirmed yesterday that he's had a knee injury and will now be out for between six to eight weeks. From an Arsenal perspective this impacts us little; he was, after all, injured for the latter part of this [...]

It can be done. But can it be done at Arsenal right now?

By |May 3rd, 2016|analysis, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

So there we have it. Leicester City are Premier League champions. Weird, huh? There's plenty of football fans saying that you have to be pleased for them, that this isn't something that happens in the era of big money football, so we should all be rejoicing in what Leicester have achieved. Whilst I too must [...]

Shouting at Arsenal as you fall, or dignified silence when you plummet?

By |May 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, premier league|4 Comments

Tonight history can be made if Chelski can beat or draw with the Spuds, which will mean the title is Leicester City's and in a season which has truly turned out to be one of the most disappointing under Arsene Wenger, it is somewhat fitting that we have to find ourselves cheering on the evil [...]

The ‘Top Trump’ was the win, but there are still too many unanswered questions for Arsenal

By |May 1st, 2016|analysis, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

Did you ever play the popular card game "Top Trumps"? Well, regardless if you did or didn't, there was always one card that pretty much beats any other card in the whole deck. I have the Marvel version of the game and I think it's the Incredible Hulk. Well, the reason I'm bringing this up [...]

Can Arsenal fans affect change?

By |April 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

I gave some musings on Twitter yesterday about the respective fan groups who have called on everybody to unite under the 'Time for Change' header, so I thought i'd elaborate a little on some thoughts, as there's very little else to talk about at the moment. That's what's fundamentally fueling this initiative, isn't it? The [...]

Insipid Arsenal and Arsene’s baffling selection decisions at Sunderland

By |April 25th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

Inspid was the first word that came to my mind after yesterday's display and I've already seen a number of Arsenal fans use it, so clearly I'm not alone in my view of how this Arsenal team failed again to show any kind of drive, any kind of belief and quite frankly looked like they [...]
