How far can this Arsenal team go?

By |September 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|0 Comments

Ok, I'm going to call 'bloggers privilege' with this, because I've asked a question to which I have absolutely no idea on what the answer is, but it's a question I've been asking myself for the last 24 hours since our rout of Chelski on Saturday evening. The performance against that lot was so convincing, [...]

Reading draw kind; let’s all appreciate Arsène’s legacy today

By |September 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, League Cup|0 Comments

Last night's League Cup games passed off without too much incident, with United, City and those Tiny Totts progressing, to set up a series of mouthwatering reserve games between most of the bigger clubs left in the competition. Except us. We've got Reading at home, which you'd expect us to win and if the tickets [...]

Three points, flowing football, finding our stride

By |September 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Three lovely, juicy, delicious points. Don't you just love them?  It doesn't matter who the team is, or how much form they do or don't have, I always have nerves that we're going to bugger up a result. It's funny because if you looked at all of the games Arsenal have played over the last [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

Onus on PSG could be to our advantage on the counter

By |September 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, Match Preview, Tactics|2 Comments

I don't know about you, but when I get towards the end of the season, depending on how Arsenal are playing, it always feels like a bit of a slog when it gets to each match day. That's where the start of the season is always so much more enjoyable, because at this early stage [...]

Perez a little underwhelming, but don’t write off, yet

Happy Thursday to you and yours. Yesterday it was so hot during the day, I made the mistake of emailing The Management and telling her that we were going to BBQ in the evening. It was all going so well until I sat down to eat my food, by which time lightning began to flash [...]

Bob McVeteran to sign for Arsenal??(disclaimer – not a real person)

By |August 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|1 Comment

So it appears as though news is starting to trickle through the airwaves that the so-called 'madness' signing is, in fact, Antoine Griezmann. That would indeed be a fine piece of 'madness', were it to be pulled off by the club, Arsène Wenger too.  But unfortunately, as is the case with Arsenal under Arsène and [...]

Arsenal are like my three-year-old-niece

By |August 23rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, History, premier league, Rant, Transfers|7 Comments

Welcome to Tuesday y'all. We're now officially on a one week countdown before the transfer window has slammed shut and unsurprisingly, there is no news, which isn't at all like the saying. It's not really good at all. Of course we have to reserve judgement until the window has closed, but based on the data [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

By |August 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, premier league, Rant|3 Comments

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

Happy without Higuain? Why there are still plenty of options for Arsenal

By |August 14th, 2016|analysis, Transfers|1 Comment

So we missed out on Gonzalo Higuain, again. Nobody can really say that they were surprised though can they? Arsène Wenger is more comparable to a tight Yorkshireman than to a man overseeing one of the elite clubs in Europe, with unwillingness to fork out large sums. To splash over £70 million on a single player [...]
