A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

Well lads and lasses, I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no idea what to make of yesterday's game. I don't know if I should be a little worried about the way in which we handed Swansea a few lifelines, or happy about the fact that at times we were breathtaking and ultimately [...]

Ghosts of Swansea past need to be erased for title belief

By |October 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's match day! Hoorah! Proper football is finally back! Yippee!  As you can tell, I'm rather excited that Arsenal are back in action today, after what has felt like the longest interlull in a long, long, time. It's Swansea at home for a three o'clock kick off and whilst I can't be there to see [...]

Santi’s words to youngsters could be given to Arsène

We're nearly there folks. The interlull is nearly behind us and I don't know why, but this one has felt waaaaaay longer than the last few. It's like we're being punished for finally seeing an Arsenal side click - Burnley aside - after about a year and a half.  The reality is probably more to [...]

Hector and Theo symbiosis is key

By |October 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, internationals, Tactics|2 Comments

I must say that this season, Theo Walcott has done a bang up job in proving some of his doubters thus far, hasn't he? He's improved his overall game, is looking the player we should have seen six years ago and when you read stories like this you can only be pleased that we have a [...]

Another couple for Big Per?

By |October 5th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, contracts, Defence|2 Comments

Yesterday I did a piece on how important I thought it was that Santi was given a few more years at Arsenal, given his impact on the team, and the result was pretty much universal for all Gooner's that they wanted him to stay and the club should do what's needed.  I don't know if [...]

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

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

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 [...]
