Another Saturday In January

I am a cautious fan. I avoid assumption, I shun prediction. Too often has the finger of astonishment been bitten by the teeth of regret. Nevertheless I was sure.  I was certain. Along with the vast majority of the congregation gathered, including the long suffering Fulham chapter, I would see an easy home victory illuminated […]

Arsenal’s Mistakes.

A Classic Mistake (Bayern Munich 0 – 2 Arsenal, 13th March 2013). I am told all the time “In the last 8 years Arsene has made mistakes” Normally I reply with one of my two stock answers: A) “No shit Sherlock” or B) “Perhaps, but not as many as someone else would have,and not as […]

The Özil Effect

Today a guest post by Tim Head Mesut Ozil, one of the all-time greats … Throughout the summer we heard calls for a marquee signing, and a suggestion that Arsenal under Wenger could not only not compete at the high end of the transfer market but actively didn’t want to do so. Some fans suggested […]

Three Points Please

So, we just need to beat Villa to go back to the top of the league . On the face of it that should not be too difficult. However, as the referees seem to be doing everything possible to help City and Chelsea, I must admit to a certain amount of trepidation. I might be […]

Would Arsenal’s 04 Team Win In 2014 ?

A quiet day so I have updated an old post.We will look at the Villa game tomorrow. Some time ago we had a discussion about what “world class” is in relation to players. Of course we could not agree on what it meant, let alone which of our current players the definitions actually applied to. […]

£120 million Spent Would Do The Trick.

Today we have a brand new guest poster Tim Head (@foreverheady, should you want to follow him on twitter,I suggest you do just that) “There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in […]

Talking Through the Arse Again

George and Ronan with Geoff (@geoffarsenal) shoot the shit about Arsenal.

Season Over For Theo – And Arsenal?

At about six-thirty last night I read a post on here by arse_ or_brain which simply said “Theo out for six months after scan revealed torn ligament nightmare” Obviously this news made me sad for Theo, Arsenal and myself. It was very depressing and disappointing. Just as the lad was back up to speed he, […]

Should Arsenal Join The Costa Franchise ?

Today,a guest post from Muppet ( @MuppetGooner ) Here we go again, it’s that time of year where everybody gets to play championship manager and decide what reinforcements we need for the assault on the title in May. Costa, screams the Twitter arsenal massive, buy him, and we secure the title. Wenger laughs off this […]

Spurs Outclassed

Wenger’s pitiful eleven hold London … Well that was all rather easy, wasn’t it? Spurs were riding on the crest of a United-beating wave, and we were putting out a pitiful team. So I read. From @TheHighburyInn: “Wengers pitiful starting XI Taking the FA Cup & spurzzz for granted Could end up in tears!” I […]
