I had a friends BBQ to go to yesterday afternoon, so only caught the bit up until Shelvey saw red yesterday for a mindless stamp on Alli, but by the sounds of the game in the end it was a good decision. The last thing I want to see is that scummy lot picking up [...]

Morning Gooners, happy match day to you, even if it is only a 'fitness developing' exercise today when we play Benfica on home soil. I think I will watch the games this afternoon, because I suspect we'll get a better indication on how much work is needed for this team after today's workout. The usual [...]

Arsenal Deadwood II

During the era of Denilson, Bendtner, Chamakh and Gervinho, also known as The First Deadwood era, I held no real affinity for any of the players who weren't in the first XI. They were young players who'd shown promise and, thanks to the likes of Nasri and Cesc, the club had panicked and signed them [...]

Absentees from Arsenal tour put ‘for sale’ signs above heads

If ever there was an unspoken admission that certain players are leaving Arsenal this season, the squad announcement yesterday for the upcoming Australia tour was it, that's for sure. There were plenty of notable absentees when the news went on the Arsenal website about who was travelling, but where as some could be explained away [...]

Boycott the Sun; too many deals to be done?

I didn't blog yesterday because it seemed somewhat of a pointless activity given the horrific news of Saturday evening at London Bridge. Football can seem so trivial and far removed from the atrocities that some people can inflict on their fellow man sometimes. The world can be such a dark place when people are willing [...]

Psychology of an Arsenal formation change

With the Cup final being the only remaining top flight game of the season, it's no surprise that all eyes are turning towards it, and the club themselves are no different from anyone else in that regard, yesterday releasing a lovely looking infographic which outlines some interesting facts about Arsenal and the FA Cup. Apparently [...]

Gritty Arsenal find a way against Leicester. Just.

Three on the bounce feels lovely this morning doesn't it? It certainly felt good when I knew the game was over and on the surface, this new formation looks decent, with three victories and an Arsenal team that look like they're building their confidence to play it more and more with each game. Whether it's [...]

Wing backs are key against Leicester tonight

Midweek match day. An opportunity to break up the monotony of the working week with a spot of Arsenal and if the footballing gods are with us, hopefully a victory to add the gloss to the weekend semi final win. It's a resurrected Leicester City who come to town and despite the fact we haven't [...]

‘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 [...]

Magic Mesut masterminds Ludogorets beating

Well, I thought that turned out ok in the end last night, didn't it? Considering the opening circumstances... We all knew Arsène was going to rotate his squad yesterday, but unlike in years gone by when that has filled many of us with fear, I personally was quite happy that we were able to give [...]
