There is no silver bullet for Arsenal Football Club

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. We are less than a week away from it all being over and I am starting to get excited. The thought of three months away from having to shout at my TV because young men in their 20s and 30s can't make me happy on a football pitch makes [...]

Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

Shift in significance for Arsenal after league woes

I think it's all time we started coming to terms with the fact that tonight's game against Hull City has taken on a far greater significance since we played them at The Emirates a few weeks ago. When we were frustrated to a 0-0 draw against a rotated Hull side, we still harboured dreams of [...]

Wishing congestion on others and trying to enjoy the spectacle of tomorrow

What a start to a week. Post Hull I lost my wallet (complete with two Arsenal season tickets in) and spent the best part of yesterday evening searching for it to no avail. Then I head to the tube line this morning with an emergency Pay As You Go Oyster card (The Management's) only to [...]

Fragmented football frustrates Arsenal and its fixture list

Yesterday's 0-0 home draw with Hull may have had an almost entirely rotated XI, but the failings of the team to dispatch an equally rotated Hull City side, had a lot of familiarity about it. Arsène decided - rightly in most people's opinions I think - to ensure that players were fresh for Barcelona and [...]

Familiarity breeding anything but contempt, as long as we beat Hull

By |2017-05-19T20:11:16+01:00February 20th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

It's another matchday, another FA Cup round, another early kick off and another game against Hull City. Anything feel a bit, y'know, familiar to you? Perhaps it's a good omen. After all, in the last two years, when we've beaten Hull City in the cup, we've 100% guaranteed ourselves a trophy. So a win today [...]

Are the planets truly aligning for Arsenal?

I hope the planets aren't seemingly aligning for us to give us a false sense of security.  What I mean by that is three fold: Hull City's hectic fixture scheduling Steve Bruce has already admitted he's going to have to rotate his squad for those players who haven't played much recently. He's bidding for a [...]
