Is there an unconscious bias that exists that hampers Arsenal?

Morning folks. Happy Saturday to you and yours. Another Arsenal-less Saturday it is, although let's be honest, we're going to have to get used to that in the immediate future, because in February we only have two matches to play! I know it's a short month, but it won't feel like it from an Arsenal [...]

Arsenal looking good against Man City, VAR and referees less so

I have a whole plethora of mixed emotions this morning. Yesterday's game against Man City was one that I thought to myself was a free hit, I just wanted us to compete, but what we got was an Arsenal team that not only competed, but I thought dominated Man City for two-thirds of a football [...]

What ‘process’ are we trusting again, Arsenal?

Last night's shambolic Arsenal performance was a massive alarm bell for me. It was an appalling indictment of all the things Arteta and his Arsenal team have got wrong and although we went through a good run of form before the last international break, that is looking more and more like an outlier in the [...]

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

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

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 [...]
