I’ve got to be honest and tell you that the nerves have already started for tomorrow’s North London Derby. It always starts at least two days before the actual game and by the time I reach the day before I’m already thinking about the potential outcomes, both positively and negatively.

I make myself more nervous by […]

Theo replicating club for country, whilst Johnny-come-lately has the press fawning

I Actually managed to sit through a whole 90 minutes of an England game last night, made all the more impressive by the fact that it was a dead rubber and only one Arsenal player was starting: Theo.

Thankfully it was worth tuning in, just so that Theo could show Harry Kane what clinical finishing looks […]

Arsène Wenger has built has various Arsenal teams with key attributes that include technical quality, quick passing and movement and a precision in their play that – when it works – is breathtaking and what football should be all about.

Does Prickly Arsène have it in him?

By |October 3rd, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Well, if it isn’t the return of ‘Prickly Arsène’ in the press conference, who we hadn’t seen since at least 2013 I’m sure?

We all knew there’d be metaphorical blood spilt when Arsène went in front of the media coyotes, because they would be sniffing for blood and he looks very much like a wounded animal […]

So, Arsène had a training ground rant, did he? Apologies if you e already read this piece of info and I’m not bringing anything new to you, but I only read it this morning (see my blog yesterday for my reasons as to why I might be behind) and having read that, I feel a little […]

This weekend just gone I spent in Northumberland with The Management’s family and, travelling back from the North East via car gives you plenty of time to think. Inevitably my thoughts centred around the Arsenal and whilst I listened to United beat Southampton and the subsequent radio phone-ins, I was able to ponder over the […]

There were few 'big' moves and the transfer 'Archduke Franz Ferdinand' never happened

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Hopefully you’re enjoying your time on this Earth and you haven’t spiraled in to a pit of despair after Arsenal didn’t sign fifty bazillion players on Transfer Deadline Day.

Arsene spoke yesterday after the window had ‘slammed shut’ – to coin a hyperbolic phrase – and he referenced the Martial […]

It’s the dreaded ‘Transfer Deadline Day’ and if I’m completely honest with you, for the last couple […]
