Carrasco a no-go and United at home is so-so

So it's an FA Cup home tie against United that we have to face in the next round of the FA Cup. I guess the best way to ensure you have an easier cup final is to beat them along the way, eh? ;-) On a serious note, how are Liverpool fans going to explain [...]

Abject Arsenal embarrass themselves at Liverpool

It's hard to really find the words to describe what went on yesterday at Anfield. Adjectives like appalling, farcical, embarrassing, all spring to mind first and foremost, but even they don't feel like they really explain the performance of the excuses for footballers that took to the pitch in a mint green Arsenal kit last [...]

Arsenal defensive mitigation or attacking impotence against Southampton?

I'm struggling to fall down on a certain type of opinion on yesterday's defeat to Southampton. On the one hand we always have a terrible record there in the league. We've won once in six and yesterday was the second defeat in three years. They're becoming that pesky bogey team that Arsenal always seem to [...]

Scudamore’s Scrooge McDuck impression and pathetic Brexit football quotas

It's understandably quiet at the moment as we head into another one of these international breaks. Honestly, these things are quite vexing, I must say. If we can look at anything positive from it, it's that our momentum had been stuttering of late, but I'd really rather be playing Bournemouth away this Sunday than having [...]

Time to phase out Ramsey from Arsenal

I like Aaron Ramsey. I like his energy, the spaces he occupies, the goals he has scored and I think a fully fit Ramsey is a massive asset to the team. So whilst my title is provocative in a sense, it is 100% how I feel and is not indicative of me being a 'Ramsey [...]

Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

By |2018-09-18T07:54:02+00:00September 18th, 2018|Arsenal FC, finances, gooners, Gunners, History, Ownership and the board, Rant|2 Comments

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Ramsey contract/bench links are tosh

Howdy folks, hope you've started your day in a positive fashion, reading through messages of Dennis Bergkamp who yesterday in 1995 signed for The Arsenal and went on to become a legend at the club. Thierry will always be my king, but Dennis is god. That's how it is with Arsenal fans. As for modern [...]

Chambers, Ramsey, Holding and fearing City – wobbly with a week to go

We're less than a week before the big kick off to the Premier League so perhaps inevitably, what with the transfer window shutting on Friday too, Arsenal are suddenly looking less than perfect when it comes to preparation with the new season. I'm talking of the Ramsey situation of course, but also of the Calum [...]

Özil goes in hard on Football/politics debate

It's a bit hot for three-piece suits in London, I can tell you that much, but when one has a personal 'brand' to maintain, the air temperature can't get in the way :-) It's also getting hot over at the German FA by the looks of it, because yesterday Mesut Özil dropped a bomb on [...]

Sommer this summer for Arsenal? Nope

Morning all and welcome to another day and another load of transfer balderdash, with the news that we're supposedly interested in Yann Sommer from Borussia Monchengladbach, which would be one of the oddest moves I could imagine. I mean I get that Cech is being linked away from the club. We've signed a £22million 'keeper [...]
