I know we all rolled our eyes and manifested our delight of a signing by exhaling a big ‘about time’ when Mohamed Elneny was confirmed yesterday, but having listened to Arsène’s video about the player too on the official site, I do wonder if he was the same as us. He readily accepted beginning the […]
As far as weekend’s go, in terms of our result and in context of results for other teams around us, we can all be quite happy with our lot this Monday morning as I type. Liverpool, City, United and the Spuds all dropped points. Sure, Leicester kept up their winning habits, but let’s let them […]
They’ll be a press conference today, so I’ll be fully expecting Arsène to stroll in, put his middle fingers up to the skies and declare that November can kiss his shiny white hide. After injuries and dropped points that really shouldn’t have happened, he’ll be keen to stress that we’re still two from top spot […]
If, as expected, Arsène confirms that Cazorla will be out for potentially three months or at least until up to March, then that would pretty much cap off what has been a pretty savage seven days for us. Sunday’s point against Norwich started the bitter taste in my mouth, because two wins against West Brom […]
Time is a good healer. I feel less peturbed about the lacklustre performance on Sunday now than I did yesterday. I’m still – nor do I ever will be – at the stage where I’m spinning this in to a more positive outlook like Arsène did when he said “at least we didn’t lose”, but […]
I know it’s pretty easy to talk about it in hindsight, but that was pretty much as routine as you’re going to get in the Champions League, perhaps somewhat to most Arsenal fans frustration given the relative ease in which we dispatched Zagreb compared to the Olympiakos game.
In truth, our opponents were less than average, […]
Where to even begin with the shower of the proverbial that we witnessed from Arsenal yesterday, eh? I mean seriously, I have no idea where to even start. Nothing went right. We played terribly. Then, even with most of the 90 minutes of tripe we had to sit through, we still get handed a lifeline […]
Please forgive me if I end up jinxing the outcome of today’s game, but this match today feels very much like the Swansea game of a few weeks ago, in which we had some very difficult moments but ended up winning comfortably away in South Wales.
I’m not saying that I think we’ll win today (there, […]
What on earth do you make of that game yesterday? I don’t even know where to start if I’m honest. I don’t k is whether to express relief that the team managed to salvage a draw, or frustration that we looked so leggy and at times disinterested, or at least a little clueless and out […]
I don’t like this particular fixture that we’ve got today. It was this same fixture about this time last year that I was almost banned from watching The Arsenal with family members around, because of the profanities that I was firing in the direction of the flat screen, as everybody was around celebrating my birthday.
