FA Cup thoughts from a gooner: To Schadenfreude or not to Schadenfreude…

I'm trying to work out this morning how hard to go in on the schadenfreude with the scum after they crashed out of the FA Cup on penalties to Norwich last night. I mean on the one hand I want to get stuck in two footed and laugh my t*ts off, but then I think about the [...]

A second half step up from The Arsenal against Portsmouth

Well, we got there in the end and, despite some pretty decent concerted effort from Portsmouth in the first half against The Arsenal last night, the job was done and we are into the bowl for the next round of the FA Cup. It wasn’t easy though. Far from it in the first half and [...]

Ring the changes tonight, Arsenal: let’s see some of the future

It’s another Monday match day for us and it’s another silver trinket that we’re fighting for at the end of the road, as we take the trip to Fratyon Park to face a Portsmouth side who will be no mugs tonight I’m sure. Portsmouth may be a couple of divisions down from us in League [...]

The perfect non-Arsenal football weekend

If you could map out a football weekend this season in which Arsenal don’t play, but you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time, well this weekend has so far been it. Leicester lost on Friday. Chelski drew yesterday. But the biggest ‘tick’ of the weekend was Liverpool being spanked 3-0 by Watford. It means no [...]

Arteta needs to pick us all up

After the game on Thursday Arteta said it’s his job to pick up the players form the crushing feeling of a last second goal in extra time. But actually the man now has the weight of an entire club - including the fan base - with which to lift the mood. It’s strange though. We’re [...]

Soares in is a sensible move for Arsenal

Bit of a later one from me today. Partly because I was working from home this morning and therefore haven't been sat on the tube able to write my usual ramblings. But mainly because I went out last night on a work corporate thing and first thing this morning I was pretty hanging. It's a [...]

The dominant Arsenal kids do the business in Bournemouth

I wondered what type of Arsenal we'd get for yesterday evening's FA Cup fourth round away tie to Bournemouth. On the GT Radio show last night I missed that each match had played out very differently so far: One game in which we'd not taken our chances and were frustrated (Bournemouth away in the league) [...]

A full strength team for Arteta away to Bournemouth?

Yesterday I was far too hanging to be able to tap away at my computer. Had I have been then I'd have most likely talked about Pablo Mari, who is set to become our first signing, after being spotted on Saturday night at Heathrow airport with Edu. It's a deal that brings in a centre [...]

Arteta tight-lipped on Matvienko, but less so with Ceballos

Morning folks and welcome to another bloody weekend in which Arsenal aren't playing, because we've got a poxy Monday night game going on. It's bloody annoying I can tell thee. But it is what it is and I guess we have to deal with it. I suppose if you're going to look at the positives [...]
