Imperious Arsenal impress against West Ham

Morning you wonderful humans, you, and a Merry Christmas one and all! Yesterday I had a lovely afternoon with my family around my brothers house. My nephew greeted me at the front door with a big smile on his face, wearing the West Ham third kit, followed up by a few volleys of "we're gonna [...]

Old Trafford disapppintment again for the Arsenal, as usual

There were United fans crying about the first Arsenal goal last night, bleating on about injustice, fair play and all of that nonsense. I'll tell you what injustice is; going to Old Trafford, being the better team for most of the match, then coming away with nothing. That's how I am feeling this morning and [...]

How can Arsenal compete with the financially doped?

Morning folks and welcome to another working week. I can smile knowing that there are Tottenham fans that were crowing just a month ago that are sad this morning, but behind that smile is the very real worry that they'll actually bother showing up against us next Sunday, as opposed to what went on yesterday [...]

Walcott vs Ramsey; End product vs work rate – sacrifices needed?

Yesterday some Arsenal players were in action for England and, whilst I'm pleased that Theo got off the mark and the Ox chipped in (almost literally) with an assist, I didn't bother watching the game and it's difficult to read too much in to it. After all, I don't want to watch a pointless thrashing [...]

We'll get victory through harmony – the players believe it

Stability is a place called Arsenal these days. With the announcement that Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have both renewed their contracts with a four and three-year deal respectively, we have seen two of the recently unanswered questions be unequivocably dealt with by the club. In terms of keeping the continuity of the squad together, only the inking of [...]

Alexis' success good for us?

Alexis Sanchez will be a happy boy today, after chipping the winning penalty to see Chile win the Copa America, so after a season of somewhat success at Arsenal just gone (and I say 'somewhat' not because of his personal success, or the teams, but I get the feeling the squad are all happy with [...]

Arsenal's PR offensive is still good for the fans; Dennis' legacy remembered

It'd be nice to be able to talk up the fact that Ivan said yesterday in a fans Q & A that we're going to sign Player x, Player Y is in the bag and Player Z was just waiting behind a pop-up banner to appear like a Sol Campbell from nowhere, but the reality [...]

Exploit the width against Hull's formation

Today the good lord Bergkamp could see fit to bless upon us the day of St Totteringham, in which we celebrate the mathematical certainty that Arsenal will finish above the other team in North London in the Premier League. Ideally a draw yesterday coupled with an Arsenal win would have made this weekend just about as good [...]

Permutations, as St Totteringham's draws ever nearer

So it appears that it's not just football in which there are some 'boring boring' tactics used, as Floyd Mayweather decided that yesterday he'd rather celebrate the equivalent of a 0-0 to beat Manny Pacquiao by winning on points in what I am reading from people on social media, was more of a snugglefest from the American. I'm [...]

Options in the squad, but still a very tough time with tough decisions

Arsene's presser started with the bad news about Gabriel being out for three weeks, but injuries in an Arsenal squad - especially the infamous 'three weeks' ones - are as par of the course as an Arsenal player, as the new inductee song in front of the playing staff. It's a shame for Gabriel because [...]
