My Arsenal limbo

By | 2017-12-09T09:57:19+00:00 December 9th, 2017|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, premier league|0 Comments

Yesterday evening I picked up The Management from her work Christmas gathering and I did the gentlemanly thing and dropped off a couple of her colleagues at the nearby station in Surbiton. On the way I was asked by one of the lads - a United fan - the usual question i'm sure we all [...]

Arsène & players should milk the applause

Rebuild, reboot, sweep clean – get the contract rebels out of Arsenal

At this point in time can anybody say with any level of certainty what on Earth is going to happen to our two ‘big name’ stars come January? Can anybody enlighten me?  Because Arsène certainly can’t and I’m not sure he has any idea any more. His latest interview from beIN - and if you [...]

Are Arsenal the new Everton?

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday. I’m at a conference all day today so it means an earlier than usual start so I can rattle through a few work emails before I head off.  It’s one of those annoying things where you know you’re out of the office and you know that unless you do [...]

Solid, compact, counter – Arsenal’s gameplan against Man City

By | 2017-11-04T08:57:13+00:00 November 5th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Defence, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Morning all, hope you're all feeling rather fantastic this morning? Or are you like me and not really looking forward to the prospect of playing the supposed 'champions elect' on their own turf this afternoon? Well actually, I'm more concerned with getting some pig inside of me, because i had a bit of an evening [...]

Appreciating Santi when he’s gone; no gung-ho tomorrow Arsene

Poor old Santi, eh? Not only does he have eight operations in a year to save his ability to walk, play football, etc, but the doctors have to take a part of his tattoo on another bit of his body as a skin graft, to sew him back up again together. There are plenty of [...]

Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

By | 2017-10-16T08:07:14+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]

Press all over the pitch against Chelski, Arsenal

By | 2017-09-19T07:30:00+00:00 September 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Welcome to the worst day of the season: the Annual Defeat to Chelski-a-thon, in which we all think that surely probability will eventually work in our favour and we might actually get a win, but then we realise that the same fate will befall us that has befallen us many times before.  It's safe to [...]

No Mesut this weekend?

Morning folks, hope y'all are alreet? This Thursday football, delayed kick off malarky is havoc on the ability to write content you know. Yesterday I was cream-crackered and today as I chow down on my honey and peanut crunch cereal, I have no press conference words from Wenger to have a look at and work [...]
