Costa, Ibrahimovich and Alexis – how much is good news?

Well there's no other place to start this morning's blog, given some of the news which came out yesterday, than this: Should Arsenal just go and sign Ibrahimovich and Costa? Screw general elections, Arsenal need a striker and clearly there are some people so worried about 'the madness' of Mbappe, that they're already trying to [...]

The ageing Arsenal boxer – it’s sad

I don't really know what to say. I don't think there's anything that I can say that would either soothe my own soul when it comes to Arsenal, or offer any words of consolation or positivity to you, because I have none for myself. Arsenal Football Club looks like it's on its knees at the [...]

The copy/paste blog from the last few seasons?

I don't really know where to begin today. This is the first time where I've had a pre-match blog and can't really think of anything remotely useful to say. Half of me thought about finding my pre match blog from the season before last, or the one before that, and doing a 'copy/paste' job. But [...]

Abject Arsenal players are a disgrace to the shirt

I am appalled. I am appalled at the travesty of a performance that we witnessed yesterday. In Championship Manager they used to have a saying which involved describing you team as 'running out of superlatives to describe'. What is the exact opposite of that? What is the antithesis of running out of nice things to [...]

Get the variables right against Bayern; and use pace to win on the counter

So here we are. Bayern Munich away. Like last season. And the season before. Etc, etc, repeat to fade.  I'd be more excited if we were playing a team with which we had a terrible record with, but haven't played for a while, if I'm honest with you. I'm just struggling to get too 'count [...]

Mes, Mo and Arsenal not sh*tting the bed

With just over 24 hours to go until our annual trip to Bayern, there are a few bits and bobs filtering out from both sides, and a press conference sure to take place in Bavaria at some stage today.  It'd be great if the press asked the manager the question: "it's all a bit boring [...]

Ox/Xhaka – the missing puzzle pieces?

By | 2017-05-19T20:07:08+00:00 February 13th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Tactics|2 Comments

I'm intrigued. I'm intrigued to know what Wenger is going to do in the middle of our midfield for Bayern away this week. The reason I am intrigued is because I think he has what he perceives as a 'safe' option which will deliver what he knows, or the 'gamble' option, which will be a [...]

Squad rotation: Wenger be like…

By | 2017-05-19T20:07:14+00:00 December 8th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners|0 Comments

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but my journey to and from work swings me by Wembley Park and yesterday, it was unusually busy. It was only after almost everyone got off at the national stadium that I realised that the Spuds were having a leaving party! Apparently there were a few empty [...]

Embarrassing ‘meh’

I'm really not sure what to make of yesterday's 5-1 hammering to Bayern Munich. I mean, obviously we played poorly and obviously our Champions League qualifications are hanging by the tiniest of threads, but it was a strange game because at times in the second half we looked good. Heck, Ollie G even weighed in [...]
