Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]

Arsenal: the creaking vessel

By | 2017-10-16T08:07:14+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It's interesting how defeat to a team that you really shouldn't be losing too usually brings such introspection and analysis amongst fellow fans, as we try to work out where we are, as well as how the remainder of the season unfolds.  Rarely after a composed victory does one take such stock of ones team [...]

Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

The reality behind Chambers & Özil contract situation

By | 2017-10-12T07:23:09+00:00 October 12th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, contracts, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Morning all and welcome to a brand new Thursday. It's a Thursday in which contracts are the hot topic and top of the agenda and that's not least because of the tale of two contract undertones that sit behind the two big stories emanating from yesterday: Calum Chambers has signed a new deal Özil' agent [...]

Defensive rotation at Arsenal – but are they ready?

By | 2017-10-10T08:10:18+00:00 October 10th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, Tactics|0 Comments

Last night as Wales' World Cup Qualifying campaign drew to a close I spared a thought for poor ol' Aaron Ramsey. A good player who should probably be somebody who gets to showcase his skills at a World Cup finals, was denied victory by the reprobate that is James McClean, a player who I think [...]

My eyes hurt. Please just win, Arsenal.

Ahh man I feel roughered this morning. That's rough and knackered combined, kids. I had many a drink last night and at 2am remembered that the broadcasting companies have ruined football with their ridiculous kick offs. And now I'm not appreciating the karaoke I did in my kitchen with my mates. Not even in the [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

Predicting Arsenal’s line up against Borisov – your guess as good as mine

By | 2017-09-28T07:36:04+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

It's a trip to Belarus this evening for Arsène Wenger and his charges, as Arsenal line up against BATE Borisov and I think it's fair to say that with all the will in the world, this isn't a game in which we should be seeing too many players who will play on Sunday at noon. [...]

Team structure over expendable star men like Alexis

I wanted to broach a topic today that I sort of touched upon yesterday, relating to both Özil and Alexis and of course, there inevitable departures in either January or more likely May next year.  I think the first of the contract rebels of the modern era was Flamini. I'm sure others will put me [...]
