Change it Arsenal. Or Stan’s oblivion awaits

By |2019-05-30T08:55:47+01:00May 30th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, Unai Emery|2 Comments

I'm trying hard this morning guys. I'm trying real hard. I'm trying hard because for all of the talk, the messages from ex players, the 'manager' who supposedly feels comfortable with this competition, what I'm looking at is a team of f**cking bottlers who stared Champions League and a trophy and not only blinked, but [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Preparation and incentive: What Arsenal need to do to win on Wednesday night

By |2019-05-26T09:08:42+01:00May 26th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League|0 Comments

Happy Bank Holiday Sunday to those of you in the UK, enjoying the extra day off tomorrow, which means we can all have an extra cheeky beverage or two this afternoon and then take a bit of a lie in for the morning too. I wonder what the Arsenal players will be doing today. It's [...]

Fairytale Arsenal ending for era-defining game?

Morning Gooners. One day down, another seven to go until we learn our fate and from what I hear this game is almost certainly viewed within the club as a watershed moment. Especially when it comes to summer plans. If Champions League football is on the table for next season then everything changes, not only [...]

Boring cup finals and scary European ones

By |2019-05-19T10:06:26+01:00May 19th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

A quick one on Man City before I go in to the Arsenal spiel as usual today; their victory confirming the first ever domestic treble was certainly warranted. They are the best team this season by a mile and you have to respect the squad of players and Pep Guardiola for achieving the feat. However, [...]

Kannemann/Mustafi makes sense, but Laca should stay

Excuse me whilst I take a breath to sarcastically laugh at the UEFA statement in response to Arsenal's statement about the cup final in a week and a half's time. Hahahahahaha.....hahahaha....haha...ha....sigh... What an absolute joke that organisation are. "For UEFA, fans are a priority". No, they're really not. Perhaps that should have read slightly different: [...]

Are we Arsenal fans too overconfident ahead of the Europa League final?

By |2019-05-17T10:51:05+01:00May 17th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, History, Unai Emery|2 Comments

Happy Friday to you and your kin. With nowt on for at least another week and a half the speculation machine appears to be gathering momentum and already people are losing their sh*t because Club A is linked to Player B and for some Eason we aren't in the running. But to be honest with [...]

Stan and Ivan could have driven Arsenal into mediocrity

It's that time of the year again: David Ornstein's time. The BBC journalist's click through rate goes through the roof during transfer crazy season and it sounds like he's been wheeled out again, from some of the rumblings I've heard, not many of them good. I don't have any links because I think what he [...]

Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]
