Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]

Transfers or not, Arteta should inspire more hope in Arsenal fans for next season

We're all still a bit down at the moment because of the North London Derby defeat to a pretty average Tottenham team, but for some reason I haven't been as down as others, which is weird because I'm usually described as 'The Pessimistic One' when it comes to The Arsenal. But I just couldn't get [...]

I hate North London Derby Day – don’t make it worse Arsenal

By |2020-07-12T09:41:47+01:00July 12th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's the worst day in the footballing calendar for me personally, today is, as we travel away to Sh*ite Hart Lane to face that horrible lot round the corner in the North London Derby. I've always hated this fixture. Nerves, bragging rights, the fear of defeat and having to face all of the idiots at [...]

Arteta won’t rise to the bait ahead of the NLD

By |2020-07-11T08:16:34+01:00July 11th, 2020|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

Press conferences always give a little bit of a nugget of info about the upcoming game, but the press don't usually use it to gain some kind of insight into how the clubs might tactically set up, instead using it as an opportunity to stoke the fires of possible discontent and rivalry between managers. So [...]

VAR (again), KSE (again) and the NLD (again)

I'll not labour the VAR point for the third day in a row, but really, it now seems to have upped the intensity in which it has become totally farcical hasn't it? Last night Jon Moss - a horrendous ref as it is - decided that a United played stamping on an opponent inside their [...]

The farce of VAR once again rearing its ugly head

By |2020-07-09T08:03:48+01:00July 9th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

I didn't want to start this morning's blog labouring the point about referees and VAR that I did yesterday, but once again I find myself pretty angry having seen a couple of situations yesterday in other games that happened in the Premier League. The first I saw was a still of the Brighton vs Liverpool [...]

VAR adds to more Arsenal frustration at home to Leicester City

By |2020-07-08T11:19:33+01:00July 8th, 2020|Arsenal, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|1 Comment

I don't know about you but I have a real sense of frustration about the game against Leicester City last night and there are a number of factors that seem to be driving that I think. Dropped points The first is the fact that we've dropped points that would have seen use sitting level with [...]

Arsenal must use the flanks well and be prepared for the Leicester counter

Another matchday is here and it’s ‘Part II’ of our Death Run as we come up against Leicester City at The Emirates this evening. This game is an intriguing one - and just as terrifying as the Wolves one - because of the way in which Leicester battered us on their turf earlier in the [...]

Auba, Guendouzi and Leicester – Monday musings

By |2020-07-06T09:00:13+01:00July 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, contracts, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Happy Monday peeps. Yesterday I had a stinking hangover, so didn’t compile any thoughts on the Wolves result, but I gotta tell ya I was mighty impressed I have to say. It was the first ‘statement victory’ that we have had under Arteta and no wonder he had such a beaming smile afterwards. I know [...]

Arteta’s confidence (on Auba and more) will transmit to this Arsenal team

By |2020-07-03T07:58:44+01:00July 3rd, 2020|Arsenal Manager, contracts, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we had Tricky Micky Arteta's press conference yesterday rather than today, which means we have something to stick our teeth into before this working week is done, which is nice. It must also mean that the team are making their moves up north today I'd imagine; probably because they got so lambasted by the [...]
