Morning folks and welcome to another Friday. I was going to say 'Lockdown Friday' but I don't think we're still in Lockdown, are we? I don't know exactly when it changed, it seemed to seep into whatever this hybrid between Lockdown and normality is, but anyway, happy 'Whatever it is' to you and your kin. [...]

This is going to be a fun blog to write today, because The Arsenal, we won the bloody cup! I am a happy man. Last season I felt broken after that Europa League final. It really hit me hard and had knock in effects this season, even affecting my ability to become optimistic and hopeful [...]

Nothing silly in the FA Cup Final today, Arsenal

By |2020-08-01T10:39:57+01:00August 1st, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

It’s cup final day and I am a very nervous man. Today’s game isn’t just the last game of the season, it isn’t just about a shiny silver trinket, it is also a financially and footballisticly significant crossroads the club finds itself in. I so desperately want us to win the FA Cup today. But [...]

Emi or Bernd? Either way Arsenal should be ruthless this summer

By |2020-07-31T08:56:24+01:00July 31st, 2020|Arsenal, Defence, finances, Mikel Arteta, Transfers|0 Comments

I don't really know in which direction to go with for today's Friday musings. I feel like it's a little to early to go full match preview and start talking about the game tomorrow and, as I've already talked about how I'm feeling and how nervous I am, as well as how many weird nervous [...]

Thank goodness that Premier League season is over

The best part about yesterday's 3-2 victory over Watford was when Mike Dean put his whistle to his lips and called time on this latest Premier League season. I have been on this earth for 37-and-a-half years and as far as I can remember this has been one of the worst that I've had to [...]

Are we not allowed nice things as Arsenal fans?

Well if that wasn't the crappy Yin to last weekend's fantastic Yang... Are we not allowed to have nice things? Are we not allowed to bask in the glory of a really resolute and fantastic performance? Because it feels like it with this Arsenal side. As brilliant as they were against Man City, yesterday they were as [...]

Arsenal and Arteta deliver a tactical masterclass against City

Morning people. And what a good morning it is, because we’re waking up today knowing we’re into another FA Cup Final and, unbelievably, it was done by a performance which showed a level of grit and determination that Arsenal have rarely shown in modern times. Yep, it was ‘backs to the wall’ Arsenal who beat [...]

Liverpool ‘do an Arsenal’ to provide us with a boost ahead of Saturday’s cup game

Well knock me down with a feather duster, I did not see that result coming, not in the slightest. A 2-1- home win against the champions and a game that I like to call a classic 'Champ Man Skanking'. If you're old enough to have played Championship Manager in the 90s and early 2000s you'll [...]

Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]

Arsenal are masters of their own downfall in the NLD

Arsenal be 'Arsenalling'. And yesterday's 2-1- defeat to that scummy lot from round the corner was about as 'Arsenalling' as you can get. This is a weird one this morning because in the cold light of day I'm not as angry as I thought I'd be. In fact, I've seen a few positives that can [...]
