Arsenal’s attempt at building an aura and era of dominance

Morning Gooners - happy Friday and all that jazz. Hopefully you're looking forward to the weekend and the Arsenal on Sunday? I do hate Sunday games in general. Saturday's have always been the best time to play football and Sunday just feels like a long wait, feels like you have to hang around a bit, [...]

There is no more transfer ‘mystique’ any more

Happy Monday folks. Well, as happy as it can be after you've just had a wonderful week off in the sun boozing, eating nice food and generally sleeping in late. This 'returning back to work and having to get up early to tap at your computer' thing is, ideally, not something I'd like to do. [...]

Who cares about ‘legend’? Eddie needs a goal

Hello there friends. I hope you are having a lovely Monday and I hope that you're not too bent out of shape about the whole 'Fabregas: legend or no?' Debate that I've seen raging online in recent days. Can I admit something to you: I don't really care if I'm honest. In the whole 'legend' [...]

High pres versus high press: Chelsea v Arsenal preview

Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

The predictability is more painful than anything else

The most galling thing about yesterday's game against the most morally bankrupt club of all time, was the predictability with which we enabled them to pick up a result, from both the sending off and the goal we conceded. In the morning as I blogged, I was nervous because of our appalling record against footballs [...]

More of the same next year, Arsenal; Özil leads like Fabregas did

It's the last day of 2015 and as many people do, it's a good opportunity to look back on what has happened in people's lives, as well as what has happened at The Arsenal. It's hard to argue that the team haven't really been consistent over the course of the year. Sure, there have been [...]

Mesut Özil: Is this the birth of an Arsenal legend?

By |2017-05-19T20:11:45+01:00November 12th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, History, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

Last night I had a little smile to myself. I was thinking about the outrage when Arsène waved away the overtures of a Fabregassian return to the club and the player himself admitted that Arsène had told him that he wouldn't take up the option on the Spaniard, because we had Mesut Özil, with whom [...]

Coquelin's importance and ticket supply/demand vs PR

It's Thursday, the countdown to the top of the table clash between us and Chelski is now rolling in to full-on 'countdown', the players are starting to trickle out little tit-bits of information and Arsène will no doubt give us an injury update later on today before addressing the press tomorrow (unless his pressed is [...]
