Chosen few witness Arsenal hammering

I can be one of the few that said they actually bothered turning up last night for the dead rubber against BATE last night but, unlike my picture above suggests, that's where the only disappointment of the night exists. The stadium was probably even less than half full and whilst that will no doubt be [...]

Options for Arsenal on ‘Match Day B’ vs Koln

Match day today, although given it's featuring an Arsenal B team, perhaps games like the one this evening against F.C. Koln should be renamed 'Match Day B'? It's a curious one, is today's game, because we're up against a German side who are on their own turf. It's also a team who gave us a [...]

Out of touch board klaxon; Arsène team update for Swansea

If the Kroenke spin machine was in full force on Wednesday night, then the Chips Express that trundled into town on Thursday was a complete derailment.  The AGM took place yesterday and as usual it was an affair of relatively pointless corporate nothingness, but unlike usual it was presided over by a man who couldn’t [...]

Nketiah’s night

The great thing about a Carrier Bag Cup game is that it throws all kinds of little Arsenal sub plots up and thankfully, in the end by the time the whistle had blown to see Arsenal through on to the quarter finals, this game against Norwich was no different. Step forward Eddie Nketiah with a [...]

Loving rotation as Norwich come to town

By | 2017-10-24T08:11:22+00:00 October 24th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

Norwich at home this evening provides yet another game with which Arsène can rotate his squad and I have to say, with no sense of irony or sarcasm, that I’m enjoying the level of rotation we’re seeing this season from Arsenal. Perhaps it’s because I am a child of the Championship Manager and latterly Football [...]

Jack back to crack the Red Star

Morning Gooners. Y’all alreet?  It’s the Europa League for us tonight and it’s another away trip, this time to Red Star Belgrade, who feel like the sort of side you’d always have to play in computer games of the 80s and 90s in European competition. A former very decorated club, that name has drifted from [...]

Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

No Mai Tai’s for Theo; Jack needs his body to hold together

Not content with a lie in after Thursday night's squad rotation game against Doncaster, Arsène was back in to London Colney yesterday to give his pre-match presser to those bleary-eyed hacks who had travelled in following their deadlines for copy the night before. First and foremost came the team news and it's a good job [...]
