Howdy y'all and welcome to another post season Monday, although Mother Nature has seen fit to deliver what feels like holiday weather in the UK, without the holiday to go with it unfortunately. You'll never here me complaining though - I love the warmth and would gladly have it like this every day of the [...]

This is going to be a fun blog to write today, because The Arsenal, we won the bloody cup! I am a happy man. Last season I felt broken after that Europa League final. It really hit me hard and had knock in effects this season, even affecting my ability to become optimistic and hopeful [...]

Are we not allowed nice things as Arsenal fans?

Well if that wasn't the crappy Yin to last weekend's fantastic Yang... Are we not allowed to have nice things? Are we not allowed to bask in the glory of a really resolute and fantastic performance? Because it feels like it with this Arsenal side. As brilliant as they were against Man City, yesterday they were as [...]

Morning people. And what a good morning it is, because we’re waking up today knowing we’re into another FA Cup Final and, unbelievably, it was done by a performance which showed a level of grit and determination that Arsenal have rarely shown in modern times. Yep, it was ‘backs to the wall’ Arsenal who beat [...]

Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]

I hate North London Derby Day – don’t make it worse Arsenal

By |2020-07-12T09:41:47+01:00July 12th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's the worst day in the footballing calendar for me personally, today is, as we travel away to Sh*ite Hart Lane to face that horrible lot round the corner in the North London Derby. I've always hated this fixture. Nerves, bragging rights, the fear of defeat and having to face all of the idiots at [...]

Arsenal must use the flanks well and be prepared for the Leicester counter

Another matchday is here and it’s ‘Part II’ of our Death Run as we come up against Leicester City at The Emirates this evening. This game is an intriguing one - and just as terrifying as the Wolves one - because of the way in which Leicester battered us on their turf earlier in the [...]

Formations Schmormations (at the Arsenal)

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday. I hope you and yours are keeping well. I have woken up this morning in a good mood. Is it because I have no meetings today and so can just get through my 'to do' list without much interruption? Or could it be because it's payday? Maybe. But mostly it is [...]

Tough to watch at times, but Arteta is building something – post Sheffield United thoughts

I like the world a lot more when Arsenal do the winning. It is way more fun. And even though yesterday's game - like the Southampton game - had plenty of parts that weren't a lot of fun to watch at times, I have to say the satisfaction by the end was very enjoyable. It's [...]

Rotation for Arsenal in the FA Cup today?

Howdy folks and a happy matchday to thee. It’s another Sunday game for us but it’s time to get ‘up for the cup’ as we face off against Sheffield United in our 697th away match in a row... This was not a happy stomping ground earlier in the season and in fact our record there [...]
