Does Prickly Arsène have it in him?

By |October 3rd, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Well, if it isn’t the return of ‘Prickly Arsène’ in the press conference, who we hadn’t seen since at least 2013 I’m sure?

We all knew there’d be metaphorical blood spilt when Arsène went in front of the media coyotes, because they would be sniffing for blood and he looks very much like a wounded animal […]

A change of approach for Arsenal against Olympiakos?

By |September 29th, 2015|Champions League, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

I hope that whatever team is chosen tonight, we see more energy and urgency than our last outing in this competition, because anything other than a win against Olympiakos would be nothing short of a disaster.

It’s only now, as we reach game week 2 of the Champions League, that we realise the importance of an […]

Initial Chelski thoughts: midfield success wins the game

By |September 18th, 2015|analysis, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

Apparently there’s some sort of international tournament starting today. I’ll be darned if I know what it is, because my gaze is locked firmly on what happens at London Colney today and then Stamford Bridge tomorrow.

Oddly, there hasn’t been any team news to come out from yesterday like there normally is, so I’m guessing Arsène […]

Complacency costs careless Arsenal

In yesterday’s blog I spoke about how the start of the Champions League proper yesterday evening felt like the start of the new season, full of hope and expectation, with all of the positivity that comes with it. So isn’t it just the most ‘Arsenal’ thing to do to go and repeat the same mistakes […]

Rotation against the Zagrebians is a good thing

By |September 16th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Formation, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview|0 Comments

So it’s the first game of our Champions League campaign for this season and I have to say, it feels nice not having to say that in August, knowing that we are going through a two legged affair just to progress to the group stages proper. But before I go on about The Arsenal, I […]

Can Mesut build a legacy and can Jack stay fit?

By |September 15th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, injuries|0 Comments

Howdy fellas and ladies, hope you’re feeling fine and dandy on a Tuesday, wherever you may roam. 

Let’s start today with some words about Mesut. Mainly because I like talking about him. The way he plays football is effortless and ever since we signed him, whenever there’s an article or an interview with him, I invariably […]

Stoke review: Sometimes you can’t win, even when you do

By |September 13th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do, you’re never going to win, are you? 

Yesterday I witnessed an Arsenal team absolutely dismantle Stoke City, yet when the Match of the Day team had their attempt at ‘analysis’, it seemed like they were giving a little more of a dig than praise for the performance. The fact […]

No more Stoke clobbermeisters, today will be a challenge for Arsenal

By |September 12th, 2015|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

So here we are. That wonderful of rare things: a 3pm kick off.

You can have your Friday nights under the lights, shove your Saturday early evening kick-offs, take all the ‘Super Sunday’s’ you want. I’m a traditionalist at heart with some things and the 3pm kick offs are my not-so-guilty pleasure.It’s The Orcs today and […]

Arsène ‘The Deceiver’? Do me a favour

By |September 11th, 2015|Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference, Rant, soccer, Transfers|2 Comments

Ahh Friday. Full of promise of a weekend of enjoyment, full of Arsenal and everything a home 3pm Saturday afternoon kick off and full of fallout from an Arsène Wenger press conference.

For it is he, the man with which so much irritation appears to be directed, who has caused much consternation amongst some Arsenal fans […]

Welbeck's injury sets us back a season; we need the league marsupial removed

By |September 7th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals|0 Comments

In the post-international boredom haze that we’re currently wading through, there’s nothing like a boot in the proverbial balls by the England manager, stating that Danny Welbeck will probably be out for around six months. I’m pretty sure Arsene and some people at the club will have rolled their eyes on that one. The England […]
