What’s the plan for Balogun?

Last night Middlesbrough dumped United out of the cup. I’d completely forgotten that this weekend was FA Cup weekend! It’s been erased from my memory after our Forest debacle, but at least there was some Arsenal connection, as Balogun played 60 minutes for Boro and by the sounds of it performed quite admirably. I didn’t [...]

Poor Jacky; will a formation change alter summer plans?

Poor old Jacky Wilshere, eh? If reports are to be believed he's gone and smashed his legs to pieces again, which leaves him absent for the final run in, returning to Arsenal early and probably even more up in the air about his future. Timing wise it's an absolute stinker. He has 12 months left [...]

The boost every Arsenal fan needed

A football match was won last night. By Arsenal. Away from home. I'd almost forgotten about what that felt like. Middlesbrough were the side dispatched and now in the cold light of day you can say with some comfort that they are probably almost definitely going down. Arsenal were hardly immense and at times we [...]

Repair the damage for next week’s semi final

The second Monday night football of the season provides us with a chance to at least get back to some kind of winning ways ahead of next weekend's FA Cup semi final and I must say that if we can't turn over a Middlesbrough side who are in freefall from the Premier League at the [...]

Arsenal + Alexis = cash, Arsenal + Arsène = rented season tickets

Happy Easter Saturday. I spent my Good Friday playing Monopoly with no beer, rum or wine, so I am certainly ready for a little tipple later. And on Sunday. And most definitely on Monday, the day in which Arsenal are at Middlesbrough, who everyone is saying won't give us any problems on their own patch. [...]

Bus parking – do we need to be worried at Arsenal?

By |2017-05-19T20:08:04+01:00October 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I was a little too worse for wear yesterday to blog, having consumed quite enough spiced rum on the Saturday evening, so I decided I'd wait until the inevitable affect effects had run their course and blog today on Saturday's game.  I suppose there's also an element of the match itself having been a bit [...]

Is Arsène doing it right with subs?

It's press conference day today and with Arsenal having dispatched Ludogorets with relative ease on Wednesday night, I suspect Arsène will be in buoyant mood and the press pack will probably go a little easier than they would normally, asking team news questions and wondering whether this team can go all the way this time.  [...]

Santi the quarterback dominates Boro

Arsenal are a funny old team, eh? After labouring in the North London Derby, then huffing and puffing against a Leicester team with bodies behind the ball, they faced a confident Middlesbrough team and simply swotted them aside yesterday. I have to hold my hands up and admit I didn't see that coming. I assumed [...]

Boro: A tight encounter with concentration key

FA Cup Sunday. We're getting used to this, aren't we? That, and stupid non-traditional kick off times, coupled with having to pay for two subscriptions. This weekend I've wanted to watch a bit of FA Cup action and without BT Sport on my TV, I've been limited to Match of The Day. It'll only get [...]
