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 [...]

Get the balance right, frustrate Liverpool, then counter

By |January 13th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

There were plenty of people scoffing yesterday at Liverpool's loan deal for Steven Caulker, but as an Arsenal fan whose seen plenty of goals conceded to the unlikeliest of candidates, I was not one of them. Klopp is a very precise man and he knows exactly the type of player who fits in to the [...]

Heavy Metal vs Classical tomorrow at Anfield, but this time the symphony should be stronger than previous encounters

By |January 12th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So, where better to start today, than the announcement that we'll face Burnley away from home in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Personally and for purely selfish reasons, I'd have fancied Burnley away, as I've got a mate up there and last season The Management and I had a decent road trip up [...]
