Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

Goodbye Santi, hello Seri?

I feel quite a bit sad that Santi is leaving The Arsenal. You only have to close your eyes and think of that tiny little Spaniard smiling to make yourself smile. Go ahead, take a second and do it, I promise you won't be disappointed. Yesterday former Villarreal star Marco Senna confirmed that Villarreal were [...]

Performance of individuals above result tonight

This feels like a strange ol' match day, doesn't it? It's barely registering on my internal fear-o-meter if I'm honest with you. That's largely because of the fact that unlike The Grand Old Duke of York and his 10,000 men, we can't go up or down the hill. We're just stuck in sixth. The worst [...]

Memories gifted to Gooners that many will never have

Morning folks. Y'alreet? Feeling excited? Nervous? Can't wait until Thursday? I am all of the above. I would also add 'petrified' because in the main I worry that by this weekend the season - and Arsène's reign - will slowly chug to a very undramatic ending with games at home to Burnley, away to Leicester [...]

Why Max Meyer is the best possible replacement for Santi Cazorla

I occasionally get sent pieces from people who are interested in writing and whilst often it isn't quite in the style that I have, every once in a while there's an opinion that I think is worth sharing, which is why today's blog has come from Soham De. He's a budding writer and has written [...]

Appreciating Santi when he’s gone; no gung-ho tomorrow Arsene

Poor old Santi, eh? Not only does he have eight operations in a year to save his ability to walk, play football, etc, but the doctors have to take a part of his tattoo on another bit of his body as a skin graft, to sew him back up again together. There are plenty of [...]

We need an answer from Wenger and the team

By |2017-05-19T19:51:09+01:00March 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we finally got a bit of news to chew on yesterday, with Arsène assuming the usual position in front of the furry mics and talking ahead of the game on Saturday. And unsurprisingly, most of the chitter-chatter centred around his contract, to which he also (unsurprisingly) batted away and gave no real indication on [...]

King Santi might be dead, long live the next king?

Woke up this morning like: "Yep, still in the Arsenal interlull" Man, for a team that regularly winds me up and has me vowing to put less emotional investment in them, they sure do manage to rope me back in with alarming regularity. I suppose that's a good thing: it shows the fondness I have [...]

Arsene rotates and I’m still not happy – hey, i’m human

Howdy Gooners, how goes it? Are you feeling good on a Saturday? I had a bit of an unprompted late one, with a beer or two, some rum, a bit of champers and some fine Nepalese food, which was followed by going to bed about 1am watching a programme about all of the crap TV [...]

Arsène needs to settle on a style soon

We had Hector sign his deal recently, then yesterday all the noise coming out of the club centred around Emi Martinez signing his agreement to stay at the club for an extended period. It's clear that those at the club who matter rate him quite highly, but I always find these types of deals for [...]
