VAR – pointless and run by the same incompetent refs we’ve seen for years

I watched Match of the Day last night and despite rarely agreeing with Alan Shearer, I couldn't help but thoroughly nod my head in agreement with his utter disdain at the decision making for the Watford v Totts game, because once again this season VAR wasn't used properly and the whole world could see just [...]

Luiz sentiment is appreciated, but the reality is very different for Arsenal’s title bid

A Saturday welcome I bid you my friends. Sadly it's one without The Arsenal but I guess it is what it is and we have to contend ourselves with a weekend of supporting every other team that our rivals play. So it's Newcastle and Watford that we'll be hoping to do something special today. And [...]

Returning player boost, plus one to come out from the cold?

WE HAVE SOME ARSENAL FIRST TEAM CONTENT PEOPLE!! Thank frigg for that, because that last international break was really getting on my wick. You know how sometimes these breaks can go quite quickly? No, me either, because that one get long. Probably longer than the others. It was maddening. But Unai did his "Good afternoon" [...]

Özil comes out fighting, which is what we all need, but now on the pitch

By |2019-10-17T09:38:22+01:00October 17th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Unai Emery|2 Comments

Apparently there was a 'behind-closed-doors' friendly that took place either yesterday or the day before, in which both Bellerin and Özil played, prepping them fitness-wise for upcoming games. I often wonder how they come about you know. Does Unai drop a note to another Premier League Manager and ask them if he wants to come [...]

Are Arsenal going to ‘Arsenal’ it in Manchester tonight?

Howdy from a Gooner Stateside with jet leg. I don't get it - I thought that was only supposed to happen going East, not the other way around, so I'm finding myself beat by 10.30pm and up at 5.30pm at the moment, which is not how I plan on spending my holiday in a place [...]

Is Emery devolving too much power to The Arsenal players?

I can't decide in my own mind if Emery's decisions to let the players pick their five captains is a good bit of management, giving them the opportunity to have more investment in the running of the team, or a sign of weakness because he doesn't want to make a difficult decision. Rob Holding has [...]

Liverpool a good test for the youth; Emery’s “meritocracy” isn’t showing

So it appears as though our reward for a comprehensive victory over Nottingham Forest is an away trip to Anfield for the fourth round of the League Cup in October. After the scousers youth team overcame MK Dons we were drawn against them and, weirdly, I'm kind of glad we are. Not because I think [...]

Fun in the shower for Arsenal’s rotated team against Forest

Well now wasn't that a bit of fun to watch last night? It didn't matter that it was bucketing it down because for those that made the trip to The Emirates last night they were treated to a goal-fest and some great performances from some of those rotated players. In fact I'd say that there [...]

Aubameyang to the rescue as selection questions arise for Emery

Last night I had a funky old dream. I dreamt that I was having dinner with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. He was in fine form having just bagged the winning goal against Aston Villa during the day, but annoyingly I wasn't alone to just chat foot all with him. A load of work colleagues were there and [...]
