Go attacking again against the Saints, Unai

Howdy folks. Match day. Best day of the week. Well, usually is, especially when it's a home game and usually I'm off to The Arsenal but this week I have a family event that prevents me from going. I'm not bitter. Much. It's a religious thing as well so I'm hoping that my sacrifice that [...]

Holding out hope Arsenal players will ‘click’

By |2019-02-18T07:17:56+00:00February 18th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

Howdy folks. Been a strange old weekend, hasn't it? The FA Cup weekend's are normally something we're involved in at least for a few rounds, but this year - like last year - we spent this weekend kicking our heels a bit. Well, except the players, who all disappeared off abroad somewhere to recharge their [...]

Arsenal Deadwood sequel to pave way for Ramsey signing?

Happy Thursday y'all! It's technically still summer in the UK but given the drizzle that has engulfed my particular corner of the world, you'd never have guessed it, because it's looking pretty grim. As grim as Carl Jenkinson's hopes of getting out of Football limbo, where he currently resides, too expensive salary-wise to leave Arsenal [...]

Koscielny’s injury brings to light the massive summer rebuild task of Arsenal’s defence

By |2018-05-05T08:15:13+01:00May 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

What absolutely tragic news for poor old Laurent Koscielny. Yesterday Didier Deschamps confirmed that our number one centre half would miss the World Cup and when you consider his age profile, as well as the problems he's had with his achilles in recent years, this is a crushing blow for one of our most consistent performers [...]

And so it ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper

In many ways the way in which we went out of the tie against Atletico was emblematic of the final years of Arsène's reign as manager. Defensively not at the races, offensively not quite potent enough, with players that at times look like they were trying but ultimately the team just wasn't good enough. Weirdly [...]

Wrapping Arsenal players in wool, but not too much, because we want to see them

By |2018-04-08T13:24:15+01:00April 7th, 2018|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Europa League, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

As we all wait with baited breath on the injury to Mkhitaryan, my mind has already started to shift to tomorrow's game against Southampton and wonder what happens if our Armenian has suffered the suspected medial ligament damage that Arsene spoke about immediately after the game on Thursday night, then it really will be a race [...]

Some stepping up needed from Welbz and other rotated players

Match day for The Arsenal again and despite the fact it's the closest you could get to a dead rubber without actually being a dead rubber, I'm still excited to be going along to see The Arsenal play a game, having not seen one live in the flesh for nearly three weeks now. The opposition [...]

Job done in Sweden for Arsenal

By |2018-02-16T07:55:18+00:00February 16th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|0 Comments

Well I guess that went as well as can be expected. I mean you can't really grumble at a three-nil away victory rendering the next leg a would-be dead rubber, although with a the Arsenal I guess it's always got a caveat... But still, the job was done and on a surface which was false, [...]

Options for Arsenal on ‘Match Day B’ vs Koln

Match day today, although given it's featuring an Arsenal B team, perhaps games like the one this evening against F.C. Koln should be renamed 'Match Day B'? It's a curious one, is today's game, because we're up against a German side who are on their own turf. It's also a team who gave us a [...]

Arsenal goalkeeping woes – the empire continues crumbling

By |2017-10-17T07:45:41+01:00October 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Perhaps it's just me. Perhaps I'm just seeing things that aren't there. But after yet another familiar defeat for The Arsenal, things seem to fall under the microscope a little more, as every Arsenal fan becomes more introspective over where the team is failing. Today it feels like the goalkeeping and after 7amkickoff did his [...]
