Cech out our goalie, as well as a dodgy lino

By |August 25th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Not for the first time this season Liverpool were the beneficiaries of yet more dodgy officiating, yet for the first time this season, we were the beneficiaries of a superb Petr Cech display. Which would probably be the story of the game if you asked me to describe it in a paragraph or less.

The pre-game […]

Play Walcott and don't go back to square one

With Chelski and City both picking up the wins that I expected they would yesterday, it adds a wee bit more pressure on us to perform this evening against a Liverpool team who will be buoyed by their own results, if not the way in which they played in those games.

Liverpool represent a serious challenge […]

Alexis the machine; Arsène has a point on technology and transfers

Hey there fellow fan, how are you holding up during this barren Arsenal weekend? Any good? 

I’m feeling your pain, because I feel pretty fed up at the lack of Arsenal too, so we can both be a bit morose with Sky and BT for fudging around with the fixtures. Monday Night Football may give a […]

Should we be pleased with the fixture tampering by TV companies?

By |July 4th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

It’s bloody typical that the start of the season for me is choca-block with things I can’t get out of, like stag dos, weddings and other such family occasions. But, what is more bloody typical is that having already made my plans to unfortunately offload my tickets to a couple of games, I find myself […]

Hull touch, Welbeck settled and more balance needed

By |April 29th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, premier league, soccer, Tactics|0 Comments

I didn’t watch the game between Hull and Liverpool last night, only checking in this morning to find that the scousers end of season collapse is now in full swing, but that was a bit of a touch for us wasn’t it? 

In more ways than one, actually, because victory over Liverpool gives Hull a wee […]

Surprises dished out, but it doesn't change what we need to do

So how about that then, and Arsenal/Liv….oh…

Come on now, hands up who legitimately thought that Aston Villa would be the victor in the other cup semi final yesterday? Certainly not me and certainly not the English press. That guy you always see carving the name of the team on the trophy was already at ‘pool’ […]

Emphatic Arsenal led by Özil

Well how do you even start after a game like yesterday? 

I mean wow, if ever you wanted an emphatic way to say ‘chill Gooners, we got this’, the present Arsenal team delivered yesterday. And them some. 

I’ve got to tell you, I was mighty impressed. I was mighty impressed because I thought yesterday’s game would be […]

Make my Easter Arsenal, re-write the media narrative

Happy Easter Saturday in which let’s all be completely honest with each other, unless we get a win this lunchtime, won’t make this festive season a fun one.

Liverpool come to town and it’s a Liverpool team in which Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana will no doubt have miraculously recovered from the injuries that conveniently left […]

horrendous scenes in Italy and Mesut's high midi-chlorian count

By |April 1st, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, internationals, soccer|0 Comments

If you could have written a more horrible ending to an England match, would it have been far off from seeing a host of Totteringham players celebrating a goal from the nation with which you were born? That’s what I and many other English-born Arsenal fans had to endure last night, as Andros ‘The Saviour’ […]

fanciful Walcott hypothesising

By |March 30th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|0 Comments

With one more pointless set of internationals to play, we’re still knee-deep in the thick of it, footballistically speaking. 

We had the worry of Welbeck’s injury that still looms on the horizon but, with Arsène probably not going to speak to the press until Thursday at the earliest, there’s still plenty of time for us to […]
