Saliba the bossman once again, as Arsenal are linked to an Italian defender

Having spent the weekend at Glastonbury and not getting any signal to watch the Euro's other than the England game on Sunday (I managed to use the Management's work phone through some of jiggery pokery), I managed to get to watch both of the games yesterday and so feel like I'm back on track with [...]

The Austrians delight, the English are sh*te

By |2024-06-26T09:23:32+01:00June 26th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Internationals, Rant|1 Comment

Morning folks and welcome to the midweek. I decided to get a good dosage of football yesterday so watched the awesome game that was Austria and the Netherlands. It was a peach of a game with goals, great finishes, teams being pegged back and then ultimately the Austrians winning the group which, given it was [...]

English VAR issues once again – why am I not surprised?

Morning Gooners - we all good? Got a bit of sun yesterday afternoon and inevitably dropped a beef-heavy BBQ in the back garden whilst watching the Austria v Poland game. That's what I love about the group stages; there's always something on TV to watch. Especially when it's the Euro's, because when it's the World [...]

Doing VAR properly

I want to talk a little about VAR today, particularly the application in the Euro's right now, but before I do that, let's spare a thought and metaphorically pour out a little liquor for Kieran Tierney's Euro2024 campaign, which basically died last night as he was stretchered off for another injury sustained in a career [...]

Sporting integrity must prevail

Morning all - hope you're all good? I'm back from a week-and-a-half sunning myself and whilst I haven't bothered picking up the proverbial internet online quill to pen some thoughts, I've been following all the bits and bobs that have been happening in the Arsenal and football world over the last week or so. As [...]

That’s that then

Not sure how long today's ramblings will be, to be honest with you, because it feels like the inevitable has inevitably become inevitable after finding out about The Scum's defeat to City yesterday. I didn't watch the game, I'm not interested in knowing the details, I checked at halftime and then towards the end and [...]

Uncharacteristic Arsenal mistakes leave Bayern tie in the balance

I've calmed down a little bit from my initial rage at the final whistle last night. Calmed down, but still not completely calm, because that last moment of the game should have, I think, been a penalty on Bukayo Saka. Let me show my workings here on how I get this conclusion: Neuer makes clear [...]

Saliba slighted, Rice rejoicing – the internationals still rumble on…

Oh Didier....if you're gonna come for Big Bill Saliba, you better swing hard and true, because we Arsenal fans will have his back for sure! Of course I'm sure Deschamps couldn't give a monkeys about us and what we feel, but regardless of that, it does feel a little crass of him to make comments [...]

Latest international hurdle overcome for our Arsenal lads

So it looks like the second international hurdle has been overcome this week; it appears that Odegaard did 86 minutes and came off and I'm not seeing any news of any knocks, so that's all gravy. Sadly Haaland also played 75 minutes so noises of his supposed injury - whilst he also quashed himself in [...]

It had to be Bayern and Kane, didn’t it?

It just had to be bloody Bayern Munich, didn't it, eh? On Thursday I wrote about my preference about who I'd like to see us play in the quarter-final and on that list Bayern finished fifth out of eight, so it almost felt inevitable that we were going to get one of the toughest opponents [...]
