Arsenal revisionism

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

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

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 [...]

Taking any small advantage and longing for the old transfer days

By |January 6th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, premier league|0 Comments

I don't know whether it's acceptable or not to be happy that Liverpool saw a couple more players go down with hamstring injuries yesterday evening against Stoke. I don't wish injury on anybody really, even those who are the morally bottom-of-the-barrel footballers who might deserve it through their on or off field antics, but the [...]

Theo replicating club for country, whilst Johnny-come-lately has the press fawning

By |October 10th, 2015|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Internationals|1 Comment

I Actually managed to sit through a whole 90 minutes of an England game last night, made all the more impressive by the fact that it was a dead rubber and only one Arsenal player was starting: Theo. Thankfully it was worth tuning in, just so that Theo could show Harry Kane what clinical finishing [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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

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 [...]
