Sven and Ivan share an iPod, whilst Alexis’ exit means the team must flourish

It's the start of a new working week for me, but by the looks of things Ivan and Sven Mislintat got theirs going a day early, having been snapped by Bild in Germany picking up some luggage from a car from what was supposed to be Aubameyang's silver ride; I'm not sure whether it's an [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle. [...]

Which Arsenal turn up at West Brom today?

It's New Year's Eve and for the first time in a while that I can remember that is also coupled with a match day, so the celebrations of seeing in a New Year will either be helped or hindered by today's Arsenal performance. On the 28th in the main Arsenal played well but still contrived [...]

Last gasp deliciousness for Arsenal at Burnley

Is there anything quite like a last-gasp winner in a football match? Is there anything as delicious as knowing your team has scored with so little time for the opposition to respond, that even though your club specialises in brain farts from time-to-time, you know there will be no way back for the opponent? If [...]

Formation change depending on summer acquisitions

Last night I think I ate too much food. It's 10am and in have absolutely no desire for consumption of anything whatsoever. I don't like it, because I love my food you know. But clearly my gorging has caused my belly to be full and not require any additional sustenance. Yet. Why am I telling [...]

Amateur accountant Arsenal fans run rule over Laca and Mahrez

By |2017-07-03T07:41:20+01:00July 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, pre season|4 Comments

So we've got Lacazette rolling in to town this week for personal terms and a medical, there's a bit of a surge in Mahrez-related noise across the media waves, as well as a happy Mustafi/sad Alexis. Given how the summer might end up panning out with the Chilean, by the end of this transfer period, [...]

Odds stacked against us, but hope remains on Cup final day

So here we are. We've arrived at what is now the single most important day of the season and it's a day that will quite literally be season defining: the FA Cup Final. A win will have seen this shambles of a season end with some semblance of positivity about it. A win would give [...]

Resurgence at Stoke – in time for the final?

I must say 'welcome back' to the Arsenal. Where have you been? We've been hanging around your dodgy cousin that smells a little bit and looks a lot like you, but has a limp, gammy leg, croaky voice, German measles and quite frankly, it's been an unpleasant experience. I thought that I'd just have to [...]

Can Arsenal still finish in the top four and win the FA Cup?

In short, I don’t believe so, not both anyway. Given the way this season has gone it would be highly unlikely and yet, the fact that it is still even conceivable that it could happen is really quite amazing if you think about it. At times this season Arsenal have looked rudderless. We’ve lurched from [...]

Victory or bust for Arsenal away to Stoke

Here we are folks. We've arrived at one of the least palatable games of the season for Arsenal fans. Not because the opponents are better than us. Not because we are in the worst form in the world (although a few weeks ago that could have been the case), but because it's Stoke and oddly, [...]
