I'm going to stray in to territory where I'm not exactly 100% comfortable or an expert in today. This is my disclaimer to let you know that what I'm now about to say is based on my opinion and so is both open to interpretation, bias, as well as potential factual inaccuracy, although if so [...]

Who’s leading this Arsenal team on the pitch?

It was a shame that Wolves couldn't at least muster a draw against West Ham yesterday, but if I'm going to look at the up side, it means a bit more daylight between us and them, with us five points clear of Wolves with two games in hand. West Ham knocked us out of fifth [...]

The state of refereeing and the unconscious bias against The Arsenal

By |2022-02-13T09:31:54+00:00February 13th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant, referees|6 Comments

Can we have a quick chat about referees? I feel I read blogs, watch videos and listen to podcasts of Arsenal fans, with all of us collectively having to repeat the phrase "Now, this isn't a conspiracy, but..." as a caveat when we speak about referees. We have to qualify any statement before going in [...]

Hard fought victory for the Arsenal, marred by refereeing weirdness

That was a big, BIG, result last night for The Arsenal. Make no mistake about it, it was hard fought, hard earned and even with a fair dose of perceived injustice for us, that felt like it could potentially have a bearing on our season. If somehow we manage to keep our best players on [...]

Arteta, Edu and the Arsenal football admin all need to be accountable

Yesterday we finally  heard from Aubameyang after his move to Barcelona was signed, sealed and delivered to the people of Catalonia, with the striker opening up about his exit. As you'd expect it was all his variation of the events that unfolded, but he didn't tell us too much in terms of what went down, [...]

How the hell can Arsenal keep every player fit?

And so the saga ends. Relatively quicker than the Özil one that dragged out for two or three seasons, the Aubameyang saga was concluded within two months, as the club confirmed it had terminated the contract with the player by ‘mutual consent’. Whatever that means. And I say that because there are a myriad of [...]

Arsenal climbing down from the morale high ground?

So now we know...Arsenal's hand has been played and the extent to which we have absentees has been laid bare, as the club confirmed yesterday afternoon that they've applied to the Premier League for a postponement of the match on Sunday against The Scum. Mikel Arteta spoke to the Arsenal website in the morning and [...]

For the second time in four years Arsenal travelled to the City Ground to play Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup and for the second time in four years Arsenal's FA Cup run was halted as quickly as it began in ignominious fashion as we were knocked out to a [...]

Transparency in football is gone; from the EFL to FA…

We should be playing the first of a two-legged semi final in the League Cup against Liverpool this evening. But for reasons that - as I mentioned yesterday - are increasingly murky, it has been postponed to 20th January, in two week's from today. The EFL - chaired by Merseyside-born former Liverpool Chairman Rick Parry [...]

The integrity of the League Cup and EFL is now in the spotlight – Arsenal v Liverpool

Morning folks and welcome to Wednesday. I started back up with my work yesterday and although I enjoy my job, there's nothing worse than that first day back and remembering you can't just eat, drink and be merry all the time like over the Christmas period. But the upside of this first week back for [...]
