Lots of ‘lasts’ for Wenger

Happy Friday y'all. A Friday in which we've now had time to digest the nuggets from Arsène's press conference and see him pull out yet more of those gems of quotes that he's done over the years. Of course the journos lapped it up. Talk of saying goodbye to trees, having early press conferences just [...]

A meaningless loss still hurts

I don't really know what more can be said about Arsenal away this season that hasn't already been spoken about time and time again this season and quite frankly, from a footballing perspective, next Monday and the end of this horrific campaign can well and truly get in the bin. I could talk about the [...]

Performance of individuals above result tonight

This feels like a strange ol' match day, doesn't it? It's barely registering on my internal fear-o-meter if I'm honest with you. That's largely because of the fact that unlike The Grand Old Duke of York and his 10,000 men, we can't go up or down the hill. We're just stuck in sixth. The worst [...]

Will there be a psychological issue of not winning away carried into next season?

By |2018-05-08T07:47:58+01:00May 8th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

With the final home game now past, the nice farewells and the thumping of Burnley behind us, there's little left in the season but to fulfil obligations by way of the remaining two fixtures, before Arsène and Arsenal go their separate ways. It'll feel a bit weird doing a match preview tomorrow if I'm honest, [...]

The send off we – and Arsène – needed

Well, if you're going to bow out with a relatively meaningless game, you might as well do it in style and having watched Arsenal dismantle Burnley yesterday you can't say the Arsenal players didn't do that in the Bank Holiday sunshine. Arsène was given a guard of honour and the fans chanted his name for [...]

Let’s experiment with youth and attacking options against Burnley

The final home game of Arsène Wenger's reign is today and I'm sure it will be an emotional one. It'll certainly be for the manager and I'm sure he'll shed a tear or two. For me, I'm just sad that a once great manager is having his Arsenal career peter out like it is going [...]

And so it ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper

In many ways the way in which we went out of the tie against Atletico was emblematic of the final years of Arsène's reign as manager. Defensively not at the races, offensively not quite potent enough, with players that at times look like they were trying but ultimately the team just wasn't good enough. Weirdly [...]
