A Lewandowski/Arsenal moment of weakness, then the reality

Happy Friday friend. Hopefully you are looking forward to the weekend? I had a moment of weakness yesterday whilst watching Portugal against Poland. I thought "imagine if Lewandowski decided he didn't want to play in England and City, Chelski and United had all played their cards, leaving us open to going for him" and for [...]

Raiola is taking the Mkhi

Sometimes people do get a little too worried about stuff that they can have absolutely no influence on, don't they? Of course this being an Arsenal blog, and me being somebody who regularly writes about Arsenal related stuff, I've probably shown a few examples of that in the past, but this morning and last night [...]

Feathering the nest at international tournaments

Having seen the unfancied Italians see off the very much fancied Belgian's last night, my first thoughts (perhaps inevitably) were towards supposed 'big name' players not performing, as well as the hype that surrounds them going in to international tournaments. I find internationals competitions a very strange bubble of football when it comes to players [...]

Arsène’s ‘Per’ing decision in defence, as Wel as in attack

I don't know whether to be thankful that United players seem to be dropping like flies ahead of our crucial game at Old Trafford on Sunday, or fearful of some kind of comedic backlash from the rookies and squad players van Gaal picks to play against us in the league. After all, I seem to [...]

Football loans – the rich get richer

Now, admittedly the following thoughts for today are based on opinion, rather than in depth research. I write this blog whilst on my way to work travelling in on the Metropolitan Line tube and occasionally it goes in and out of signal, so the ability for me to undertake lengthy statistical analysis is somewhat mitigated. [...]

Munich: a steep hill to climb, but it’s only a hill, right?

This feels like an incredibly steep hill for the team to climb tonight. In fact, whilst not impossible, it does feel like the kind of bill that you'd probably walk around if you had the chance.  Bayern Munich on their own patch are a formidable opponent to say the least, but given that we have [...]

The 'yeah but' brigade circling Coquelin

This morning I read Mr Positive himself, Paul Merson, talking about this weekend's Community Shield. He's predicting an Arsenal win, which is nice, irregardless of the context of the game or whether either side can truly be as 'up for it' as a Premier League game. But that's not what drew my attention to write [...]

Arsène delivers a striker; Jack needs to deliver an injury free season

"You want a striker?" Yes. "You want a striker?" Yes. "YOU WANT A STRIKER?" YES! "FINE! Here's a striker. Now get out of my office!" That's what I imagined Arsène's response to be to those people who are practically gnawing their arms off with the fact we haven't signed a striker yet, after it was [...]
