It ACTUALLY did happen again…

By |May 16th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

In this season of the bizarre and ridiculous, perhaps it was most fitting that on the final day an Arsenal team all had written off as quite poor, took one final step upwards in the league to leapfrog the Spuds by hammering Villa. In return, Newcastle decided to finally show up for their fans, giving [...]

Arsenal; Finish this off with a flurry against Villa

By |May 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

So here we are at last. It's the final game of the 2015/16 season and what started out as one in which I thought we really would win the league this year, petered out as it usually does for Arsenal after Christmas. Our inconsistency has cost us and our injury problems have crippled us, but [...]

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

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 [...]

Arsenal serve up the perfect Sunday lunch

By |December 14th, 2015|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Review, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

I'm really liking the weekend's of football action in which we win, other teams at the top of the division drop points and momentum and high morale seem to be with us. I dared not to say it pre-game yesterday, but Aston Villa were the perfect team for us to play after a hard-earned qualification [...]

Villa preview: time to build momentum

Eugh...Christmas two-day benders...fun at the time but when you eventually wake up to smell the coffee, it ain't great, is it? That's where I'm at this morning, but if there's anything that can stir me from a day under the duvet, it's The Arsenal. A 1.30pm kick off away to Aston Villa on a weekend [...]

People listening to Mesut’s subtle undertones, Cech’s banging and Walcott’s buzz

There's so much to go through today, I don't even know where to start! How about the revelation that Cech's super-awesomeness and ability to make save-after-save appears to be entirely down to Rock Band, for which I'm sure the good folks at EA are delighted with, as they now have an angle for marketing in [...]

Arsenal's FA Cup: a new dawn

By |May 31st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

Has there ever been a more comfortable and one-sided final? Have we ever seen Arsenal do it the easy away in a big game, with such verve and vigour? Does this happen to us? Arsenal are supposed to make our lives difficult, aren't they? Apparently not. Apparently there is an 'easy way' and all we [...]

My cup final. Your cup final. Arsenal's cup final. Make history.

This is it people. Cup final day. It's hard to effectively communicate the significance of today to anybody who isn't a football fan, or even isn't a fan whose team is in the final, but this is season defining. And I mean that with no sense of hyperbole at all. By 10pm tonight we will [...]

FA Cup countdown begins – an analysis of Arsenal's key decisions

It's Friday, the week has nearly met its maker, but more importantly we're less than 24 hours until FA Cup final Matchday. Much like when Arsène said that he still gets the same buzz as last year and every other time we've won a trophy under his tenure, the cup tomorrow feels as exciting and [...]

Heartbreak for Welbeck and a hint on Theo vs Giroud?

So who'da thunk that FIFA were a corrupt collection of cheating no-good-for-nothing's, eh? Then, quelle surprise, who'da thought that Sepp would persist with the FIFA elections to ensure his dictatorship remains for another however many years, by not postponing the election process after this latest set of troubles? Well, everybody, actually. Even Arsene had his [...]
