Arsenal: Goals, goals and goals

  Good Morning Positives, A wintry morning up here in Norfolk with a swirl of snow across the grey sky. I trust that those who did not attend last night’s game have, like me, had a chance to review the highlights of the game since.  Very enjoyable it was with our players finally cracking the […]

Arsenal: Terriers to Tame

    @LaboGoon on point this Wednesday morning  Arsenal host Huddersfield tonight for the first time in the Arsène Wenger and also this generation. This of course is a short turnaround, not only for us but our opponents as well. Burnley took a bit out of our players as we were made to work really […]

Arsenal late strike spikes Dyche (again)

Good afternoon Positive Arsenal fans, I sprint down the tunnel from  the Turf Moor pitch to bring you this very early post, breathless from the contest, my muscles aching from the effort over the past 92 minutes, my face bright red, the sweat steaming in the early evening gloom. It is not a pretty sight […]

Arsenal: Turf or Surf ?

@LaboGoon on the early programme today Arsenal’s performance last weekend in the North London Derby was a show off of the amazing quality and the potential we possess. The challenge now and indeed the question on everybody’s lips is can we replicate that consistently. Football doesn’t work that way though, there’s no exact science if […]

Arsenal: A Bit of Common Sense

@GoonerReverend joins us this morning from the adjoining parish  (I bet you were expecting a match review) Arsenal have parted ways with chief scout Steve Rowley after 25 years and replaced him with ‘diamond eye’ Sven Mislintat from Borussia Dortmund. If you believe the press and some of the more fanciful Arsenal bloggers who have […]

Arsenal: We know we are

Good Morning Fans of the Positive,   A slightly fuzzy morning up here in Norfolk as a result of mixing the grain and the grape, so excuse the sluurrrrrring and dribbling below. I’m entitled though, and I know it. And why am I entitled ? Because after a fortnight of being told about the best […]

Arsenal: Darkness after noon, the cock shall not crow

@LaboGoon leads the congregation in this morning’s worship  “Victory through Harmony” vs “To do is to dare” The North London Derby. What a fixture to restart the PL after the international break that finalizes places for Russia 2018. Arsenal and Spurs both go into today’s game having so much to play for; namely pride, bragging […]

Arsenal: The Fall of Fate

Good morning Positives, So … another international break, another fortnight to ponder the knowns v unknowns of our chosen sport, the carefully laid plans, the freaks of opportunity and of fortune, the strengths and weaknesses of character, and a reluctant acceptance of Fate. After Super Sunday, Meditative Monday. Of yesterday’s match I felt that we […]

Arsenal vs Manchester City – Daunting?

  It’s @LaboGoon once again “Daunting”… That’s the word many in the media space use to draw us a picture building up to our game at the Etihad. I don’t necessarily think they do this to dishearten us per se, it’s more to do with the excitement and the ‘aura’ that encompass Pep’s team at the […]

Arsenal: Easing Through

  Good morning sons and daughters of the Positive persuasion, I would say a measured step into the “Round of 32” of the Europa League achieved with minimum fuss last night. We expected a positive result, we got the result we needed. The A team v B team format in PL and Cup competitions is […]
