I think rotation is key tonight, but does Arsène?

By |October 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Match Preview|0 Comments

This is my match day day that is sandwiched in between two match day days that I cannot take part. The first was Swansea at the weekend, the second is Middlesbrough on Saturday, so I feel like I'm appreciating going to tonight's game even more than I usually do.  It's Ludogorets in the Champions League [...]

Santi’s words to youngsters could be given to Arsène

We're nearly there folks. The interlull is nearly behind us and I don't know why, but this one has felt waaaaaay longer than the last few. It's like we're being punished for finally seeing an Arsenal side click - Burnley aside - after about a year and a half.  The reality is probably more to [...]

An idea that will win Arsenal the league and minimise international annoyance

By |October 8th, 2016|injuries, Internationals|0 Comments

Howdy friend, how you holding up, on this most interlully of Saturday's? You ok? I'm ok. It's a little annoying that just as Arsenal begin to build momentum in the Premier League, an international break comes along, but what can you do? We've had to deal with this for as long as I can remember [...]

Santi has to stay

By |October 4th, 2016|Arsenal FC, contracts, midfield|2 Comments

Having had a little wander over to Arseblog news this morning, I see that Santi has been talking about the fact his new deal runs out at the end of the season, with Spain or Arsenal being another option for another year or two. I think I speak for most Gooner's here when I say: [...]

Arsenal’s destination better than journey against Saints

By |September 11th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

Sometimes the arrival at a destination is more important than the journey. Which is what football feels like sometimes and yesterday was one of those times, as we laboured terribly to a victory over an organised Southampton team who remained disciplined in their shape. Yesterday's game was like a really crappy journey to a holiday [...]

Team balance and dynamic good for Watford win

By |August 28th, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to writing this blog today. Having spent a large part of the summer in the transfer doldrums, then seeing our start to the season completely disrupted by injuries and the failure to adequately prepare for the season openers, the tone of my writing hasn't been [...]

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

By |June 3rd, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, internationals|1 Comment

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 [...]
