Are we not allowed nice things as Arsenal fans?

Well if that wasn't the crappy Yin to last weekend's fantastic Yang... Are we not allowed to have nice things? Are we not allowed to bask in the glory of a really resolute and fantastic performance? Because it feels like it with this Arsenal side. As brilliant as they were against Man City, yesterday they were as [...]

Martinelli’s blow, Mavropanos’ value protected and a VAR rant

By |2020-07-17T08:08:30+01:00July 17th, 2020|Arsenal FC, contracts, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant, referees|0 Comments

One of the things I do like about some of the people at the club, is that they clearly do a fair bit of social listening, because in yesterday's injury update the club went in to more detail about Mari and Martinelli's respective injuries. It's been a long-standing joke amongst the fanbase online that the [...]

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 [...]

Time for an Arsenal reboot – post match Brighton thoughts

Blimey. Where do we even start this morning? What an utter car crash is going on at the club and unfortunately for Mikel, even his driving skills can’t rectify what is a completely broken team. Almost ‘literally’ given that we’ve probably lost Leno for the season - maybe beyond - now. Neil Maupay telling the [...]

Aubameyang to PSG has me going all amateur accountant

I feel a bit dirty this morning. Not physically dirty, but mentally dirty, because I went on the hunt for some Arsenal content this morning and started clicking on transfer-related links from the click baitey gutter press. It was pretty, it wasn't fun, I didn't enjoy it and so the foray into the murky world [...]

No touching, no contact, no fans and no fun – aren’t we all gonna love the new Premier League?

By |2020-05-19T08:34:17+01:00May 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, History, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|1 Comment

The Premier League is fast becoming a bit of a farce, isn't it? I mean here we are just having learned about 'Project Restart' a couple of weeks ago, with the Premier League given the green light to apparently start integrating players into small groups so they can train as a collective, and then we [...]

Football kits, memories and costs – something’s gotta give

Morning folks. Well, here you have it, it's a lockdown in the UK which means no more going outside at all unless you're exercising. I have a supermarket - a big one - opposite me and already this morning I've seen people queuing to get themselves inside the store to buy their essentials. Strap yourselves [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]
