Arsenal: You got to be having a laugh

@ReverendGooner goes easy on the media  Now I’m no fan of the weekly pantomime that is Arsenal Fan TV but for now they are here and here to stay or until Robbie gets picked up by one of the majors to become a real football reporter which I’m sure is his dream job. The former […]

Arsenal: Why the long face ?

Good morning Positive AFC, As we all anticipated our excellent home form carried us over the line against Toon.

Arsenal: the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life

Good Afternoon Positive ladies and gentlemen, Well the positive  news is clearly that we gained a point on an afternoon when, I admit, I had my doubts that we would exit St Mary’s with anything other than a damn good jeering. As matters turned out a fine headed finish from the old French master above. […]
