Can Arsenal fans affect change?

By |April 27th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, Rant|0 Comments

I gave some musings on Twitter yesterday about the respective fan groups who have called on everybody to unite under the 'Time for Change' header, so I thought i'd elaborate a little on some thoughts, as there's very little else to talk about at the moment. That's what's fundamentally fueling this initiative, isn't it? The [...]

Arsenal fans are now apathy vs angry

By |April 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, premier league, Rant|4 Comments

Yesterday I mooted the idea that I wouldn't blog today, but who am I kidding, right? I am as ingrained in writing this daily musing of all things Arsenal, as Arsene Wenger is of giving players 'just one more chance' when they've already had enough for 12 lifetimes. So here I am today before you, [...]

Arsenal in full ‘meh’ mode

By |April 18th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

This is going to be a challenging blog to write today. Challenging in the sense that I suspect at times I'm going to come across as angry. As The Management often says to me though: I'm not angry. I'm just disappointed. So the challenge is conveying a person who is not angry. I really am [...]

Changing the only constant left at The Arsenal

As I watched the conclusion of The Masters yesterday, I took some comfort in the fact that as it turns out, it's not just Arsenal that choke under pressure in sport. Jordan Spieth, world number two and man who has controlled the entire competition, had a complete meltdown whilst cruising in front and allowed Britain Danny [...]

A very Arsenal implosion against West Ham

By |April 10th, 2016|analysis, Arsene Wenger, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|0 Comments

So today we all wake up after Arsenal's title dreams unofficially died against West ham at Upton Park. Unlike Highbury, there was to be no 'last London derby game at ground' revenge we could extract on a very well organised West Ham team. Well, they were well organised for the second half, anyway. Because at [...]

West Ham away: keep the flicker of hope alive, Arsenal

By |April 9th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

An early kick off today means that in but a few hours, we will know if Arsenal's league title fate is all but over, or still flickering with life. A trip to Upton Park has rarely been so daunting: West Ham have dispatched nearly all of the top teams in the Premier League at home, [...]

Can I ask Arsène a question?

By |April 8th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference, Rant|0 Comments

I've had my issues with Arsène Wenger this season, but that doesn't still mean I don't support him as the manager of the team, and therefore don't want to hear some of his insight and tactical approach ahead of what is possibly the biggest game we've played against West Ham since I don't know when.

Elneny of Hydra

I love the idea that when Mohammed Elneny conducted his interview on the official site yesterday, after being awarded the Arsenal Player of the Month award, he had a maniacal glint in his eyes as he said to the camera "this is only the beginning". The thought of somebody with somewhat comical hair styling could secretly [...]

A very Arsenal end of season result

By |April 3rd, 2016|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Well, yesterday was a bit more fun, wasn't it? Four goals, dominant throughout, an Arsenal team with fluidity and movement and some very promising performances. Yessir, we can all be happy after a game like that, can't we? And yet, despite my pleasure at being able to actually watch Match of the Day yesterday evening, [...]

Watford: The surgical precision of Ozil is needed today

By |April 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So here we find ourselves, at the beginning of April, with all but the tiniest glimmer of hope that a Premier League title challenge remains. Were it to be City and Chelski duking it out at the top of the division, we'd all be looking at what reinforcements Arsenal need to make after another disappointing [...]
