A very Arsenal end of season result

By |April 3rd, 2016|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Well, yesterday was a bit more fun, wasn't it? Four goals, dominant throughout, an Arsenal team with fluidity and movement and some very promising performances. Yessir, we can all be happy after a game like that, can't we? And yet, despite my pleasure at being able to actually watch Match of the Day yesterday evening, [...]

International hierarchies and billionaire support for Arsene

Morning Gooners. Hope you're holding out ok? I managed to get through Good Friday, which means a Saturday that can be spent having plenty of booze, as I'm at a friends Wedding in the City, so at least that's another distraction from yet more time spent without The Arsenal. Last night there were the latest [...]

Exploding hamstrings, succession planning and enjoying different flavours – some things for Arsene to consider

Happy Saturday to you super awesome people. hopefully it's one in which you can keep yourself busy, what with the whole 'no Arsenal' getting in the way n'all. For me it's one in which I've got half a day of some chores, then it's a bit of egg chasing observation with a couple of mates [...]

So here we are at the end of another working week and a weekend of FA Cup football ahead of us. Today is press conference day and whilst we got a bit of news as usual on injuries yesterday from Le Boss, he'll no doubt elaborate a little bit more this morning and give us an [...]

Take the risk with Walcott or Welbz?

An away trip to Old Trafford for The Arsenal today to a ground in which, quite frankly, we've been woeful at for about a decade. It really is quite staggering that our last win was ten years ago, where an Adebayor goal secured a 1-0 score line. Since then it's pretty much be exclusive disappointment, [...]

Desperately seeking right wing solutions at Arsenal

I need you to do something for me over the next few days. I need you to not get your hopes up too much about United being fatigued when they play us on Sunday. Yes, yes, yes, I know they have a lot of injuries at the moment, which is forcing them in to very [...]

Fragmented football frustrates Arsenal and its fixture list

Yesterday's 0-0 home draw with Hull may have had an almost entirely rotated XI, but the failings of the team to dispatch an equally rotated Hull City side, had a lot of familiarity about it. Arsène decided - rightly in most people's opinions I think - to ensure that players were fresh for Barcelona and [...]

Familiarity breeding anything but contempt, as long as we beat Hull

It's another matchday, another FA Cup round, another early kick off and another game against Hull City. Anything feel a bit, y'know, familiar to you? Perhaps it's a good omen. After all, in the last two years, when we've beaten Hull City in the cup, we've 100% guaranteed ourselves a trophy. So a win today [...]

Is Giroud good enough for you?

Can I admit to having an opinion that I have had for some time, that I find suddenly wavering in the light of some new evidence that I've come across? I've long held the belief that Olivier Giroud gets a hard time by a section of our fanbase. He's just not some peoples cup of [...]
