What would England give for a Santi? Or a Bellerin? They have a Jack though…

Today I embark on a journey that will see me climb the UK's three biggest 'peaks' (although I have some kiwis in my team that assure me that they're just 'inclines' - they would know I guess) in the space of 24 hours and, if you were to see the amount of paraphernalia I have [...]

Bellerin’s nice surprise; looking out for Xhaka

By |June 1st, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, internationals|3 Comments

So, some congratulations are in order for a certain Hector Bellerin, who yesterday became one of ten Arsenal internationals to be selected for the Euro's. It is clear reward for a guy who has not only established himself in the Arsenal team as a regular, but shown that he's one of - if not the [...]

A new midfield style to be forged in final three games?

By |April 29th, 2016|Arsenal, injuries, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday Arsene gave an update on the players available at the weekend and wouldn't you know it, for the first time since the end of last season, everyone suddenly seems fully fit. Isn't that just the most Arsenal news of all time? Three matches before the end of the season, when everything is done and [...]

What does the rest of the season mean for you?

By |April 12th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, midfield, Tactics|4 Comments

Genuine question there that I'd love to get some comments on from anybody tuning in today. We've had the Champions League come and go (which to be honest most of us must have thought that would happen anyway after the draw), we've seen a chance for FA Cup glory melt away after a lacklustre home [...]

Hope remains, players return, but there should be no sentiment – we need to be flawless

Righto, this is a new month, it's a new me, one in which I have now formally given up alcohol until May and at a time in which my other habit - The Arsenal - has driven me to even more drink than usual, I'll have to find a way of numbing the pain of [...]

Elneny the typhoon rolls in to town, but it’s the Ramsey/Coquelin/Cazorla conundrum that puzzles

By |January 15th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, injuries, midfield, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

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 [...]

Legislating for a lack of creatives isn’t easy at Arsenal

By |December 7th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, midfield|0 Comments

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 [...]

No news isn’t good news when it comes to Alexis and Santi

By |December 4th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Rant|0 Comments

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 [...]

Arsenal should have squirrelled away more nuts by now

By |December 3rd, 2015|analogy, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]

A timely Alexis breather? How about a flexible transfer window just for Arsenal?

By |December 1st, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]
