Russia !?!

Arsenal tip up in Moscow taking a 4-1 advantage form the first leg. Well in a normal week you might conclude that should be enough, but this week in Europe seems anything but normal. With Mkhitaryan out for the foreseeable and Xhaka tucked up in bed with a sniffle I think the team will be […]

Arsenal: Dancing and singin’ in the rain

Good Afternoon Fellow Positives, If you like your action end to end and of about 96 minutes  duration you will have enjoyed that game as much as  did. It is good to squirm on the edge of my seat, in a nice way,  until Mr Marriner thankfully put an even contest beyond doubt. Of our […]

Let’s start with a positive though, the back four looked solid. Mustafi was excellent in his defensive duties, Chambers […]

Arsenal Can Stoke Relegation Woes

If I were to ask any Gooner to pick a PL team he/she just fkn hate, after Totnum of course, I’d bet 4 out of 5 would say Stoke. I’d go one further and say since the dawn of social-media 4/5 at some stage sent out a tweet or comment at the start of any […]
