Bit of Schadenfreude on a Sunday morn, plus the excitement of a high press

This will probably be a short one today because there's little going on in the Arsenal world. Hopefully this is because Unai is already in a darkened room trying frantically to work out how the heck he's going to turn Shokdran into a world class defender and how he's going to help Iwobi to learn [...]

Roma fire a warning shot for Arsenal’s benefit

If ever there was a metaphorical neon 'warning' light that should have been flashing at London Colney and every Arsenal players house last night, it was demonstrated in the Champions League, but not where we thought. I tuned in to watch Liverpool hang on in the first half and then had some dinner and didn't [...]

Arsenal show their clear fragilities – and it’s pathetic

Hello there you gooner, you. You alright? How you holding up after last night? I'll level with you - in writing this on the Friday night sitting on the tube making my way back to Uxbridge; I have an early morning drive up to Northumberland and do the chance of writing a post match blog [...]

Arsenal have lessons to learn to beat Liverpool

This is going to be hard tonight. Make no mistake about it. People can talk about Liverpool's frailties, about how Klopp doesn't seem to know how to set up a decent Liverpool defence, but this will test our Arsenal team significantly tonight. Defensively. Liverpool have a glut of players in form and plenty who know [...]

A United chuckle, Liverpool panic and Rosicky appreciation blog

United lost yesterday and we all got to engage in a bit of schadenfreude at their expense, until it became clear that City have a nice and easy tie against Bristol City to pick up probably at least one of the minimum two trophies they should win this season, at which point it became less [...]

Arsenal and Arsène are insulting us all

I can't hold back this morning. What happened yesterday at Anfield was nothing short of a disgrace. It was symptomatic of Arsenal football club under this tired and dated manager who mollycoddles and placates a collective of underperforming premadonnas who do not deserve to put on the Arsenal shirt. Yesterday was the culmination of a [...]

Anfield isn’t fun for Arsenal, today won’t be either, I suspect

Today's game against Liverpool isn't exactly one in which we go in to on good form, nor is it a place that we historically - 89 aside - enjoy going to, particularly in recent history. So personally I'm not too confident that we'll be coming away from Anfield with three points tucked safely under our [...]

Arsenal: the tail wagging the rabies inflicted dog

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's a saturday in which we know our fate with regards to the Europa League, so it's trips to Red Star Belgrade and BATE Borisov, as well as Cologne. The final of those teams is one that I myself and particularly excited about, as I have family in Cologne and so will [...]

A lovely weekend for Gooners, despite Alexis situation

This is shaping up to be quite the weekend, football results wise, eh?  I decided to go for a long run yesterday afternoon and when I started my run I switched the radio on via my phone and started to jog just as Liverpool went 3-2 up. I thought "screw this, last thing I want [...]

The Ox: the most confusing contract situation ever

Friday's Lacazette excitement has been replaced with Sunday's Ox disappointment, as there are reports coming out today that the midfielder has snubbed his latest contract offer because he wants more game time centrally, something Liverpool can supposedly offer. This is one of the most 'will he/won't he' situations I have ever seen at Arsenal I [...]
