‘Small miracles’ and majestic Arsenal men

By |2017-05-19T20:07:14+01:00December 7th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Match Review|0 Comments

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Welly, welly, welly. Wellington. Wellington. Wellington. Didn't expect that from the last round of Champions League matches in our group, did we? No-siree we didn't. But we got what I think Arsène had described as a 'small miracle' and both the Arsenal team put out yesterday, as well as the Ludogorets team [...]

Basel away: what’s the logic on squad selection?

By |2017-05-19T20:07:14+01:00December 6th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|3 Comments

When I unlocked my phone yesterday on the tube home, I hoped to read stories on the official site about "the strength of the squad" or how one or two players "have been unlucky not to play more football" so far this season. I didn't expect to read about how the squad travelling to Switzerland [...]

Arsenal purring; momentum building with Basel win

I am happy. I am happy because this Arsenal does 'The Football', rather well at the moment, doesn't it? It's lovely to see the team popping the ball around with such consummate ease. Alright, the opposition weren't exactly Barcelona last night, but "can only beat what's in front of you" etc, etc, yada-yada-yada... It all [...]

Özil’s megabucks deal; Basel pre match thoughts

There are two major discussion points for me today and thankfully, neither of them involve Sam Allardyce! Firstly, the news filtering from a German Journo Henning Feindt, that Mesut Özil has signed a new deal and will wear the number 10 shirt. The journo in question wasn't exactly explicit on when Özil will occupy the [...]

I’ll have a crack at England and Jenko can have a crack at Arsenal

Did a bit of scouting on our opponents for Sunday last night. Well, I say 'scouting', but actually I just sat on the sofa, ate fried chicken, whilst Burnley beat Watford. What I learnt was: Burnley have a decent dead ball taker in Steven Defour They like a headed goal Insightful stuff, I know, and [...]

Oracles speak, groups get grouped and Arsenaldom feels a little brighter

So, as with all Arsenal transfers, sh*t doesn't really get real until yer man David Ornstein gives out a little titbit of information via the medium of Twitter. I think it's something like stage four of a five stage process, to be honest with you, with the final stage just being the medical, confirm terms between [...]
