Vardy’s already put Arsenal one down before we’ve started

Before I talk about the game Arsenal are playing today, can I just take this opportunity once again to bemoan the absolute travesty that is the state of refereeing in the Premier League right now. Yesterday's game between West Brom and Brighton involved an incident in which a referee - Lee Mason - decided to [...]

Referees old clowns network has to go

I didn't blog yesterday on account of a bit of a stinking hangover, but also I didn't really have much motivation after that disappointing performance against Aston Villa on Saturday lunchtime. I did however put the football on whilst I was cooking yesterday, so was able to see Liverpool get utterly beat up against a [...]

A referees league table with relegation/promotion; bringing back some accountability

Still pretty frustrated about the way that Wolves game panned out on Tuesday, I have to tell you. It was clearly a contentious point that split most people in football but whilst the fault lines seem to be that every other pundit and ex-referee (most of them, anyway) were coming down on the "red card. [...]

Arsenal shafted by refereeing once again against Wolves

By |2021-02-03T07:47:34+00:00February 3rd, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant, referees|6 Comments

I have woken up this morning and I am still mad about the result last night. There were certainly things in which we could have done more to avoid the defeat to Wolves at Molineux last night, but I am finding it almost impossible not to think about this game and look at the details [...]

Dundalk ahead, but my mind is on being Mike Dean’d at Old Trafford

Morning all and welcome to another middle of the week nothing-a-thon. I am of course talking about Arsenal and perhaps unsurprisingly given the general level of malaise felt around our performance last weekend, it is all a little quiet from the club at the moment. I'm kinda ok with that though. Long gone are the [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal are being shafted by inept officiating (this isn’t a conspiracy theory)

By |2020-01-20T07:52:37+00:00January 20th, 2020|Arsenal FC, premier league, Rant, referees|7 Comments

It's so maddening that every single team fighting for Champions League places this season are tripping up on a weekly basis. It was the same yesterday with Leicester and Man United. I can't quite work out whether or not it's because the league isn't as good as it once was in terms of the top [...]

Roma fire a warning shot for Arsenal’s benefit

If ever there was a metaphorical neon 'warning' light that should have been flashing at London Colney and every Arsenal players house last night, it was demonstrated in the Champions League, but not where we thought. I tuned in to watch Liverpool hang on in the first half and then had some dinner and didn't [...]

Lacazette needs to be bedded in tomorrow

Having had a week off in the Highlands, chilling, ignoring that football is a thing (other than the occasional - and I do mean occasional - glance at my Twitter feed) I thought i'd pen some thoughts with some renewed vigour and excitement that this latest international break is done, dusted and can be consigned [...]
