The two bits of key news that came out yesterday included a bit of a blow, injury wise, as well as a bit of clarity on where Le Boss’ mindset is with regards to who will occupy the right-wing spot for the immediate future given our lengthy injury list.

Firstly, the injuries, which are a bitter pill […]

Do we Arsenal fans demand more tactical analysis than we used to?

By |October 26th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Formation, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Tactics|3 Comments

That was a decent enough weekend we’ve just had, by my reckoning, don’t you think? The Manchester derby was the only real concern for us and as the two sides cancelled each other out, it ensured that we are level on points with a City side who after five games, were going to walk the […]

Everton preview: the game will be won out wide

Hello again my fellow Arsenal friends. I hope this Saturday finds you well? Are you excited for today’s game? I know I am. I’m excited because Arsenal currently have their tails up and performances have been very good both defensively and offensively of late. We’ll need to have another very high level of intensity and […]

Malaise for many, but Champions League success still burns for this Arsenal fan

By |October 20th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

A night under the lights to save our Champions League season against the German champions and recent history tormentors. What more could you ask for on a random Tuesday in October?

It wasn’t meant to be this way. We were supposed to have collected six points and be looking like a draw in one of these […]

Expect frustration at Watford, but we need to start a title run now

By |October 17th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|4 Comments

The one positive I will say that comes out of the international breaks that punctuate each season, is that when an Arsenal match day comes around, you learn to appreciate it more. That’s how I’m feeling today, with the Watford game just hours away, knowing that soon I’ll get the excited feeling of an Arsenal […]

Theo replicating club for country, whilst Johnny-come-lately has the press fawning

By |October 10th, 2015|Arsenal, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Internationals|1 Comment

I Actually managed to sit through a whole 90 minutes of an England game last night, made all the more impressive by the fact that it was a dead rubber and only one Arsenal player was starting: Theo.

Thankfully it was worth tuning in, just so that Theo could show Harry Kane what clinical finishing looks […]

Walcott ends Rooney’s England career? Arsenal karma?

By |October 8th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, Internationals|2 Comments

Yesterday evening I wrote a bit of a flippant tweet that a year ago nobody would have expected Theo Walcott to be on the verge of ending Wayne Rooney’s England career, but having heard from the man himself in the afternoon at the England training camp, I do wonder if he’s got that outcome in […]

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 […]
