Does Prickly Arsène have it in him?

By |October 3rd, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference|2 Comments

Well, if it isn’t the return of ‘Prickly Arsène’ in the press conference, who we hadn’t seen since at least 2013 I’m sure?

We all knew there’d be metaphorical blood spilt when Arsène went in front of the media coyotes, because they would be sniffing for blood and he looks very much like a wounded animal […]

My football bubble, the Arsenal players’ football bubble

By |October 1st, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league|1 Comment

The pain of the woeful Tuesday display still remains, but it’s become a little bit more of a dull ache than a stabbing feeling in my gut, such is the speed in which football is coming at us with the games we’ve got midweek and then at the weekend.

Almost inevitably, some of the players have […]

Arsenal and Arsène’s ineptitude could spell the end for Champions league qualification

By |September 30th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Rant, Uncategorised|6 Comments

That, last night, was a disgrace. 

Everything was wrong about yesterday. The mangers decision to play Ospina, the lethargy in the team performance, the slow build up, all of it was appalling and I hope the players are having a serious word with themselves today. 

Before a goal was even scored, my colleagues for the evening were […]

A change of approach for Arsenal against Olympiakos?

By |September 29th, 2015|Champions League, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

I hope that whatever team is chosen tonight, we see more energy and urgency than our last outing in this competition, because anything other than a win against Olympiakos would be nothing short of a disaster.

It’s only now, as we reach game week 2 of the Champions League, that we realise the importance of an […]

Effervescent Alexis secures Arsenal the points

By |September 27th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Uncategorised|0 Comments

Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday’s highlights, I don’t exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday’s performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game.

I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well as […]

Chelski preview: hair of the dog

By |September 19th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|2 Comments

The one good thing about playing on a Wednesday night followed by a Saturday, I suppose, is that it does give you an opportunity to wash the nasty taste out of your mouth after a stinging defeat. Of course, much like ‘hair of the dog’ works wonders, if we lose again against Chelski today, it […]

Rotation against the Zagrebians is a good thing

By |September 16th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Formation, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview|0 Comments

So it’s the first game of our Champions League campaign for this season and I have to say, it feels nice not having to say that in August, knowing that we are going through a two legged affair just to progress to the group stages proper. But before I go on about The Arsenal, I […]

Season defining month for Arsenal

By |September 14th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, premier league|4 Comments

In an age of hyperbole, even more so with social media making everything in this world of needed ‘ASAP’, it’s quite often important not to go too overboard when making statements in an online forum. So when I begin my blog today with the statement “this could be a defining period for our season”, I […]

Stoke review: Sometimes you can’t win, even when you do

By |September 13th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|2 Comments

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do, you’re never going to win, are you? 

Yesterday I witnessed an Arsenal team absolutely dismantle Stoke City, yet when the Match of the Day team had their attempt at ‘analysis’, it seemed like they were giving a little more of a dig than praise for the performance. The fact […]

Arsène ‘The Deceiver’? Do me a favour

By |September 11th, 2015|Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, press conference, Rant, soccer, Transfers|2 Comments

Ahh Friday. Full of promise of a weekend of enjoyment, full of Arsenal and everything a home 3pm Saturday afternoon kick off and full of fallout from an Arsène Wenger press conference.

For it is he, the man with which so much irritation appears to be directed, who has caused much consternation amongst some Arsenal fans […]
