A back three’s a brewing away to Leicester

It's match day today and the tam will most likely - unless they did last night - be on their way to face an in-form Leicester City side that I don't think many people have us down for victory for the evening. I can totally understand that and to be honest with you I am [...]

A strong team simply must deliver in Portugal today

Today was supposed to be a standard match preview blog ahead of this afternoon's ridiculously early kick off away to Vitoria, but after the news dropped yesterday evening from Unai Emery that Xhaka had been dropped as captain, I guess that probably takes a little bit of the focus off the game itself today. Aubameyang [...]

So who is going to be Arsenal’s number 10, then?

Bloody hell Leicester, that's one way to put ten men to the sword, eh? Last night their battering of Southampton felt in very stark contrast to the two pretty terrible football match that our players have delivered in the last week. It was ruthless, free-flowing and an example of a manager who has given his [...]

VAR – pointless and run by the same incompetent refs we’ve seen for years

By |2019-10-20T11:03:24+00:00October 20th, 2019|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I watched Match of the Day last night and despite rarely agreeing with Alan Shearer, I couldn't help but thoroughly nod my head in agreement with his utter disdain at the decision making for the Watford v Totts game, because once again this season VAR wasn't used properly and the whole world could see just [...]

No Corporal return tonight, but the young players need to give Emery something to think about against Forest

By |2019-09-24T08:07:47+00:00September 24th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Defence, League Cup, Match Preview, Unai Emery, youth|0 Comments

In just over 48 hours we have our second matchday, having only played Villa on Sunday and now the League Cup against Nottingham Forest just two days later. To put that in perspective it's like playing a Wednesday night Champions League game and then being on the bill for the Friday night football game on [...]

Is it time for Pepe at Anfield today?

Morning all and welcome to another match day, probably the hardest of the season I think, because Liverpool are certainly one of the best two teams in the league. A 5.30pm kick off for our boys means we have to do a bit of waiting before we find out our fate but such is the [...]

What’s going on at right back for Arsenal?

So we have a Sunday morning in which there's an Emirates Cup on the horizon later on this afternoon and probably a little more Pepe chatter until something breaks like a 'spotted at Arsenal' or 'medical set for x date' or something similar. After my later post yesterday there was some noises about PSG possibly [...]

Zaha to Arsenal: Something’s gotta give

Morning all. An utter scorcher in London today means i'll be basking myself all afternoon in a garden in Hertfordshire today methinks, as my Pa rustles me up some piri-piri chicken and maybe a sausage or two. I wonder what Wilfred haha is doing? If you believe the press he's probably phoning up Roy Hodgson [...]

How dare Auba ‘like’ something!

You know it's 'crazy' season when people start to go batsh*t mental because Aubameyang 'likes' a post calling Emery a name of some sort, then people take to messaging him not to leave, or start going crazy over a rumour that Man United are in for him. People need to chill the eff out, if [...]

Carrasco adds a bit of excitement; Welbeck was a ‘what could have been’

By |2019-06-08T10:33:34+00:00June 8th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|3 Comments

Another day, another spurious link, with Yannick Carrasco seemingly back on the cards for circa £30million it seems. I've gotta say this is one that would get some fans excited about. He's a Belgium international, showed flashes of brilliance whilst at Atletico Madrid and if it's true that his Chinese overlords will sanction a move [...]
