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 [...]

Barca situation the first sign of a super league?

By |2017-10-03T08:01:10+01:00October 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league, referees|1 Comment

It feels like every month in today's world there is some new atrocity which makes the headline news and yet again we have some lone wolf gunman ending people's lives because of his own selfish actions. It doesn't matter what has happened to you, how bad your life is, how much wrong has been done [...]

Mike Dean goes extreme on Arsenal; no surprises on UEFA squad

By |2017-09-06T07:27:29+01:00September 6th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, premier league, referees|0 Comments

Last night I dreamt that Mike Dean gave Granit Xhaka a second yellow card this weekend. That in itself isn't so surprising, but when you consider that it was for a foul throw and that in his infinite wisdom Mike had decided that he'd had enough of foul throws, it seemed a little harsh. Especially [...]

Insulting the intelligence of Arsenal fans

Well here we go then folks. We're now in to the transfer 'silly season' and no sooner is the ink beginning to dry on the contract of Arsène's new deal, than we're getting snippets of information to get fans all worked up and excitable that we're 'going big' this year. It was L'Equipe yesterday evening [...]

Ox runs the show against Hull

On a cold, snowy/slushy Saturday lunchtime, Arsenal laboured to a 2-0 victory that will have hardly inspired any of us to think that some kind of minor miracle will take place between now and May.  But do you know what? It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter because all that we should really be concerned with [...]
