We’ve got one hand left to play at Arsenal

By |February 27th, 2017|analogy, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, finances, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|3 Comments

Well as expected, Chelski scanned their way to another win, Stoke bent over and presented themselves for crayon-munching Kane to provide them with a metaphorical meat pounding and to complete the faecal matter infused flavour of the weekend, United completely skanked a Southampton team that were the better team throughout. Tonight we can complete the [...]

Take Eek over Apathy with new Arsenal manager

By |February 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, History, press conference, soccer|0 Comments

Morning. I've woken up to a feeling that I thought I wouldn't get for at least another couple of days. I'm over the Bayern defeat already.  Perhaps it's because I always knew we weren't good enough. Perhaps it's because I vented my spleen on my blog yesterday. Perhaps I'm just so bored with Arsenal I [...]

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 [...]

This is it for Arsenal – black or white, win or bust

The life of an Arsenal fan is a life which is lived on an emotional rollercoaster. It's like being in the Grand old Duke of York's army; when we're up we're up, then when we're down we're really down.  On Wednesday morning, having been 'up' since Sunday, we were promptly marched down, which given to [...]

Selection quandaries for Arsenal against Watford

By |January 31st, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Well how about that for an FA Cup draw, eh? Sutton from the conference up against Arsenal from the Premier League, with a little bit more spice added to the tie with the news that the Nando's lover himself, Craig Eastmond, plays for Sutton and will probably be starting in their side to play us [...]

Relief after disbelief against Burnley

By |January 23rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, referees|3 Comments

It's hard to properly analyse a game like yesterday. Quite often I tend to jot down some post-match thoughts that tend to focus on Arsenal being a) rather quite good, or b) rather quite pants. So often it's the result that has such an important impact on my (and I suspect yours too) thoughts on [...]

Centre half stockpiling at Arsenal; no slip ups this weekend

Oh, hello, how the devil are you? Feeling fine and dandy on this Saturday morning? It's been a while since I blogged - Monday I think - but I thought I'd return to action given that there's football this weekend. I've been in St Lucia you see and whilst there's wifi throughout the resort, I [...]

Controlling the midfield – key for Arsenal today

By |January 14th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

A tricky away one for us today I think. Swansea have been absolutely gash for most of the season, but they always love playing against us and with 'New Manager Syndrome' sure to be percolating through their squad today, we have to be mindful that the players will probably be giving a little bit extra [...]

Good ol’ Arsenal, they’re proud to sign those deals

Hello there fellow Arsenal supporting friend. Happy Friday to you!  It's The Management's Bon Anniversaire today, so I'll be partaking in an evening and a weekend of festivities, before buggering off to St Lucia for 10 days on Tuesday. Lovely jubbly. But to add to that jubbly, we got some other lovely news yesterday, which [...]

(Un)Helpful PR on Bramall? 

By |January 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, contracts, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

Wednesday is upon us and I'll be darned if it isn't nearly January reaching its halfway point already. By Sunday we'll have done the first month of the year. In six weeks time, we'll have had our title dreams crushed and half of our squad will be struck down with Lymes disease and six weeks [...]
