Arsenal Trial Plan B ?

Well I’m happy with that result, I certainly have no complaints about going to the home of the champions , who are in great form with no injuries, with six of our nailed on first team starters missing, and playing in a more defensive way. It was however, not a case of parking the proverbial […]

Will It Be A Bridge Too Far ?

Seconds out , round 7. So far its won 3 drawn 2 and lost 1 in the Conte Chelsea vs Arsenal. However the 1 loss was at The Bridge. Once again I have absolutely  no idea what type of a team we will be able to scratch together for the semi final of the Cup […]

Arsenal: somewhere over the rainbow

@ReverendGooner provides an antidote to this morning’s sombre mood  Well parishioners as we sit back and pick over the still warm carcass that was 2017 and reflect on our team’s ups and downs we can either be one of two things, we can say hey it’s not all that bad and we are still in […]

A Test Of Our Squad

  This afternoon The Arsenal play the once great Nottingham Forest in the biggest domestic cup competition in the world. The fact that the mighty Arsenal have won this competition three times in just four years should not make us blase towards it. Think about the joy we all felt at the final whistle of […]

Half chances, and some good keeping, but the defenders had the edge over the 90. However yet another game ruined […]

Arsenal vs Chelsea: A test of priorities, a question of status.

Hello el Positivista! Arsenal is kicking off 2018 with the Emirates the stage as we welcome London rivals Chelsea. The Blues come into this match with great form and an extra day’s rest, we, of course, got winded by the Hawthorns con-job and, well, we also haven’t exactly been vintage these last few weeks. However, […]

The Elephant in the Room

Arsenal and the green fairy

Good morning to those who are staunch Positives, Not the result we wanted, and probably not the result most of us expected, with the Baggies languishing in the PL depths on New Years Eve and our football at Selhurst Park having some great style. Of the things we did well I thought Granit and Jack […]
