Coronavirus to impact Brighton prep? Aubameyang to go with our blessing?

How about a tasty dose of schadenfreude on a Thursday morning? Yep, I’m game too, so let’s do a little bit on the Liverpool defeat at home to Atletico Madrid last night, shall we? I mean ordinarily I wouldn’t really be advocating too much of it but given what we’ve all - and I include [...]

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 [...]

Arteta’s impressive presser breathes hope for City away

By |2020-03-10T07:38:19+00:00March 10th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

As we all suspected it was a press conference day yesterday and, whilst I still don’t think we’ll be getting anything from the game on Wednesday night, Arteta’s convictions and the way he articulated himself in the press conference, had me thinking that maybe...just maybe...he has some kind of blueprint for success. It’s unlikely because [...]

Auba’s contract length was wrong; why signing Willian doesn’t make sense

If Saturday’s results - including The Arsenal’s - were a positive day for us, then yesterday’s were the opposite, as Everton rolled over and let Chelski blow raspberries on their bellies, whilst Man City played the possession-based game of how to be toothless against A United side who had their number early on in the [...]

VAR does Arsenal a favour for once against West Ham

By |2020-03-08T08:16:26+00:00March 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

When the offside flag went up to signal Arsenal’s winning goal against West Ham yesterday, the thought never even crossed my mind that VAR would rule that it was onside and the goal should stand. Such is the extent to which we’ve been skanked by it this season I just assumed that we’d not be [...]

Torreira and his flesh wound; Arteta and his injury woes

By |2020-03-06T08:00:46+00:00March 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Mikel Arteta, press conference|0 Comments

We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

FA Cup thoughts from a gooner: To Schadenfreude or not to Schadenfreude…

I'm trying to work out this morning how hard to go in on the schadenfreude with the scum after they crashed out of the FA Cup on penalties to Norwich last night. I mean on the one hand I want to get stuck in two footed and laugh my t*ts off, but then I think about the [...]

Will the Man City fixture reschedule derail Arsenal’s momentum?

By |2020-03-04T08:02:24+00:00March 4th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Now I’m not going to go all obsessive on this subject, believe me, but having witnessed Liverpool get knocked out of the FA Cup to Chelski I couldn’t help but smile. That’s because there’s been a lot of these comparisons with Arsenal’s invincibles since the weekend and there’s plenty of salty scousers who have been [...]

A second half step up from The Arsenal against Portsmouth

By |2020-03-03T08:29:59+00:00March 3rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

Well, we got there in the end and, despite some pretty decent concerted effort from Portsmouth in the first half against The Arsenal last night, the job was done and we are into the bowl for the next round of the FA Cup. It wasn’t easy though. Far from it in the first half and [...]
