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

By |November 26th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

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

By |November 25th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

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 |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

By |November 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

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?

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

By |October 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

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

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 [...]
