Greed has a new name: The European Super League

This should have been a post match review of our poor performance against Fulham yesterday. I should be bemoaning the application of VAR and a penalty in which I don't think Gabriel even touched the Fulham player who went down in the Arsenal box like a sack of spuds. We should lament the fact that [...]

Arsenal’s little confidence-booster with Community Shield win

We all know it’s a glorified friendly, but yesterday’s penalty shootout victory against Liverpool is still a nice little bonus to start the season and against a team with more prep time and who are clear favourites to win the league again, it was nice to see us competing throughout the game. We were spritely, [...]

Coronavirus throws the whole season up into question, not just tonight’s game.

I have to admit I’ve been pretty blasé about the whole Coronavirus stuff. I mean I’ve washed my hands rigorously and many times a day, I use that alcohol gel wherever I go, following all the guidelines, etc. But as long as it’s been minimal cases in the UK and we’ve still had our sporting [...]

Iwobi centrally? Koscielny offski? Who’s impressed at Borehamwood?

Been heading out for some sun, sea and plenty of white wine Douro so haven't been able to blog as much over the last few days, but given that there seems to have been the square root of bigger all happening with The Arsenal I guess I haven't really missed much. I saw Iwobi got [...]

Online fan abuse gone too far?

Morning folks. Can we extend a bit of a 'thanks' to both Man City and Chelski for yesterday's 6-0 win for the current champions, because: It brought our goal difference with Chelski back to the same level having been a few behind them after their 5-0 hammering of Huddersfield last weekend It poured water on [...]

Tribalism within tribalism: the myopia of some Arsenal fans

Morning all, hope yours is a good one, filled with optimism for what the day ahead might bring? For me it's a standard working day but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to take what pleasures you can from it. After all, every day that passes by is a day you'll never get to relive, [...]

Do Arsenal have a development problem?

By |2017-12-18T08:13:23+00:00December 18th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, soccer, Tactics|2 Comments

A nice provocative question to start off your week. But one of those that whilst it felt to me as provocative when I wrote the headline first thing this morning, the more and more I re-read and think about it, the more it feels obvious. Arsenal most certainly do have a development problem. That kind [...]

Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

By |2017-10-11T07:23:00+01:00October 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, injuries, Internationals, soccer|0 Comments

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]
