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 [...]

Hurry up Arsenal, I’m bored of this preamble

By |August 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Rant|4 Comments

It's funny how everybody seems to lose their sh*t when a big transfer happens to a rival, especially when we've seemingly been innocently looking to the sky and whistling so as to not attract much attention to ourselves, isn't it? And when I say 'funny', what I actually mean is 'maddeningly hysterical, because that's how [...]

Victory and good performances overshadowed by Arsène’s comments

By |August 6th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, pre season|0 Comments

I find it a little sad that despite an absolutely thumping victory - albeit against a poor Norweigen side in Viking FK - most of the talk after the game and today amongst Arsenal fans, is the post match comments about signings that he made. Certainly if you read just the written word about what [...]

Draxler and Mahrez; feed us, Arsenal

By |August 3rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league|3 Comments

When you've had your dinner really early, like 5.30pm or 6pm, then you get to 9 O'Clock and you start to feel hungry again. That's how I'd describe the Arsenal fanbase right now in relation to transfers and how we feel about the squad. In June, before the Euro's started, we secured what is looking [...]

Per’s despair opens the door for Calum

By |July 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Defence, injuries, pre season|1 Comment

Well it wouldn't be a pre season with Arsenal if there wasn't already some sort of rumoured injury crisis, would it?  Yesterday the news emerged that Mertesacker may - or may not - be out for five months after the injury he sustained against Lens last week (which ruled him out of the US tour), [...]

Judgement in May/September – The ever cyclical nature of Arsenal

By |July 22nd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|2 Comments

Hello there friend. I hope you can bear with me today, lest I become ever-so-slightly ranty. I hope not to be too ranty though. Last night I read an article from the always erudite Adrian Clarke, who talked about how some people are getting a little bit knicker-twisty in relation to the activity that has [...]
