Morning folks and welcome to the penultimate week of this season, finally drawing to a close with a trip to Villa Park, followed by Watford at home next Sunday. And to add to that we now know our fate in terms of the FA Cup Final in just under two week's time, as Chelski smashed [...]

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 [...]

Tough to watch at times, but Arteta is building something – post Sheffield United thoughts

I like the world a lot more when Arsenal do the winning. It is way more fun. And even though yesterday's game - like the Southampton game - had plenty of parts that weren't a lot of fun to watch at times, I have to say the satisfaction by the end was very enjoyable. It's [...]

Howdy folks and a happy matchday to thee. It’s another Sunday game for us but it’s time to get ‘up for the cup’ as we face off against Sheffield United in our 697th away match in a row... This was not a happy stomping ground earlier in the season and in fact our record there [...]

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

By |2020-03-05T08:32:29+00:00March 5th, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

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

By |2020-03-03T08:29:59+00:00March 3rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

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 [...]
