Arsenal players disillusioned? Now they know how we feel!

Morning folks. It's wet, it's dark, it doesn't really feel like my last day in the office before Christmas and I'm hanging a little. Everything's a little fuzzy and vague. A bit like an Arsenal transfer pursuit - be it manager or player! We seem to enjoy having the worst kept secrets, don't we? I [...]

Arteta won’t get five years like Chapman did

By |2019-12-19T07:01:45+00:00December 19th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

Looks like the Arteta situation is finally rumbling to a close, in classic Arsenal "drag-it-our-linger-than-needed" fashion and after Pep decided not to give anything away post-match against Oxford United last night, you have to expect that there'll be some kind of announcement imminent. If Arteta is to take charge against Everton on Saturday lunchtime there [...]

Arteta deal done but yet it rumbles on

By |2019-12-18T07:45:42+00:00December 18th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|1 Comment

As with all things Arsenal, rarely these days do things just 'happen' quickly, so it's probably come as no surprise to any of us that the Mikel Arteta situation continues to rumble along. And like I said yesterday, none of this reflects well on those in the administration side of the football business. That's because [...]

A win for confidence against Liege

Matchday today means that we have another opportunity for a win and hopefully some sort of momentum building as we hit the busy festive period. The reality of the situation is that unless there is a monumental cock up of epic proportions - a five goal defeat would do it - we are through to [...]

If it’s Ancelotti at Arsenal, he needs to…

By |2019-12-11T07:27:23+00:00December 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Tactics|4 Comments

So Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli last night and immediately Arsenal fans are deciding in which side of the fence they fall with regards to him potentially at the club. Those that are against his signing point to the Bayern era and how the players rebelled against the Italian, those who are for Ancelotti [...]

Winning. ACTUAL winning for The Arsenal.

So THIS is what it feels like? It had been so long that I'd almost forgotten about that winning feeling. I forgotten the fist-pumpingly deliciousness of a performance that bags three points, an away one at that, with some pretty good goals chucked in as well. And they were all from open play too! And [...]

West Ham preview: pick wingers, Fred, wingers

An earlier start than usual for me, coupled with Sunday night drinking, means that it's a groggy Monday morning blog I'll be compiling for you today. The weather is like my mood when it comes to The Arsenal these days too: pretty foul. It's West Ham away tonight and after seeing the team put in [...]

Nothing Arsenal is fun any more

Do you know what? I'm not sure I even have the energy to muster a full size, normal blog, like I do every morning. I'm genuinely just 'meh' about everything to do with Arsenal at the moment. \Later on I'm going to see some family friends. I'm godfather to the lad of our family friends [...]

Freddie’s insightful presser gives hope ahead of Brighton

As a football fan you always look for the hole in a new situation and before the Norwich game I think we all did, as we backed Freddie, hoping for an instant turnaround. Of course it wasn't to be and yet again we saw some pretty shoddy defending that cost us all three points as [...]

No new Arsenal manager until January

By |2019-12-03T07:45:08+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]
