I occasionally get sent pieces from people who are interested in writing and whilst often it isn't quite in the style that I have, every once in a while there's an opinion that I think is worth sharing, which is why today's blog has come from Soham De. He's a budding writer and has written [...]

Appreciating Santi when he’s gone; no gung-ho tomorrow Arsene

Poor old Santi, eh? Not only does he have eight operations in a year to save his ability to walk, play football, etc, but the doctors have to take a part of his tattoo on another bit of his body as a skin graft, to sew him back up again together. There are plenty of [...]

We need an answer from Wenger and the team

By | 2017-05-19T19:51:09+00:00 March 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we finally got a bit of news to chew on yesterday, with Arsène assuming the usual position in front of the furry mics and talking ahead of the game on Saturday. And unsurprisingly, most of the chitter-chatter centred around his contract, to which he also (unsurprisingly) batted away and gave no real indication on [...]

King Santi might be dead, long live the next king?

Woke up this morning like: "Yep, still in the Arsenal interlull" Man, for a team that regularly winds me up and has me vowing to put less emotional investment in them, they sure do manage to rope me back in with alarming regularity. I suppose that's a good thing: it shows the fondness I have [...]

Arsene rotates and I’m still not happy – hey, i’m human

Howdy Gooners, how goes it? Are you feeling good on a Saturday? I had a bit of an unprompted late one, with a beer or two, some rum, a bit of champers and some fine Nepalese food, which was followed by going to bed about 1am watching a programme about all of the crap TV [...]

Arsène needs to settle on a style soon

We had Hector sign his deal recently, then yesterday all the noise coming out of the club centred around Emi Martinez signing his agreement to stay at the club for an extended period. It's clear that those at the club who matter rate him quite highly, but I always find these types of deals for [...]

Arsène: don’t gamble, just win

By | 2017-05-19T20:07:16+00:00 November 18th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

As expected, Arsène addressed the media ahead of this weekend on Thursday rather than Friday, with the team travelling oop norf today at some stage. No doubt Alexis will be with them, having told Le Boss that he's ok via text. Ahh texting, remember that? The thing that we all used to do before Whatsapp, [...]

Özil’s style may change; Santi’s return to help full backs

So, those pesky Chilean's have confirmed that Alexis will be playing for Chile tonight which whilst could leave some to being happy because his injury isn't as bad as first seemed, given the strapping on his leg You'd suspect they are patching him up and hoping for the best rather than him fully recovering. I'd imagine [...]

I think rotation is key tonight, but does Arsène?

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 [...]
