Don’t expect this weekend, but hope for a utopian end of season for Arsenal

Not a lot going on for us today, eh folks? I mean sure, i'll be you're filling your day with all manner of interesting things, but i'd be surprised if they are Arsenal-related thing, what with us not playing until Saturday evening against Liverpool. Me? I'm going to see if you really can get a [...]

Ditch your hierarchies, Arsène

By |February 24th, 2017|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Do you know what's strange? In life, my family and particularly The Management, often comment about how easy going I am sometimes. I'm quite happy to let a lot of things - not everything, but a lot - just pass me by without too much stress. I'm quite positive about life in general.  Arsenal is [...]

A chance for Gibbs tomorrow?

Tuesday brings the second working week for me and my new working abode, but more importantly, it brings us a day closer to the match up against Ludogorets at home. I'm gutted for missing the Swansea game - despite the pain it put us all through at the end - but I'm glad that I [...]

No identity, no points, very Arsenal

So. Right. Erm, where does one start after yet another opening day defeat? I genuinely have no idea. Gotta start somewhere though, right?  Perhaps this blog today will be as disjointed as the team felt yesterday in a pretty abject performance. Well, when you concede four at home you have to say it's abject, don't [...]

Liverpool’s new signings to bed in – we don’t have that problem!!

Oh match day, how I have missed thee, let me count the ways.... ...loads. Like, literally, loads. It's the first one of the season for us and, having seen the mighty Champions in Leicester - they know who they are and they reminded us yesterday in their chants - lose to Hull, whilst Everton drew [...]

Arsène can arrest the negativity with a win tomorrow

Happy Saturday and welcome to the first day of the season, albeit without any Arsenal, although that's ok, right? I mean, it allows us to take some sides by cheering on the teams of those that we perceive are the nearest rivals, so at least that's something.  So today you and I will be temporary [...]

Hurry up Arsenal, I’m bored of this preamble

It's funny how everybody seems to lose their sh*t when a big transfer happens to a rival, especially when we've seemingly been innocently looking to the sky and whistling so as to not attract much attention to ourselves, isn't it? And when I say 'funny', what I actually mean is 'maddeningly hysterical, because that's how [...]

Arsenal need to take advantage of Mahrez situation

By |July 16th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, pre season|0 Comments

With N'Golo ~Kante heading to Chelski, I tweeted yesterday that we should go for Mahrez, just to piss Vardy off. But actually, more than that, we should go for Mahrez because he's a good player. He's also supposedly ignoring advances from Leicester on a new deal. So I really hope we are taking a good [...]

Arsenal revisionism

By |April 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Oh gawd. That Liverpool result last night, eh? Cue the media hyperbole and fallacy of 'special night at Anfield' rubbish. Cue the banners like that uber-cringe one that says Anfield is not in England, it is its own country. Cue talk of a historic team who defy the odds and are more special than any [...]

Narrative set on goal timings, but I’m happy with a point at Anfield

By |January 14th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Having not watched the game last night due to the celebration of The Management's birthday, it's interesting for me to see the overall context of a point at Anfield, in comparison to those I follow online or the narrative of the oft biased Liverpool-favouring media. Many Arsenal fans seemed to be virtually throwing their hands [...]
