Arsenal Fans: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

In the midst of all the giddiness and joy among Arsenal fans at the prospect of a brand new, literally shiny, high profile manager taking over the reins of management from that wizened, grizzled old grand-dad we had all gotten used to, something just doesn’t ring true. Don’t get me wrong. Although am a well […]

Arsenal Plan And Execute Managerial Appointment Perfectly

  By and large I try not to feel sad for people, but I do feel slightly sad for all those outraged at the appointment of Emery.

The New Arsenal Manager Must Be……..

After many years of arguing about whether or not Arsene should be our manager we can now turn our attentions to fighting about who should be the next manager. We are even managing to fight about how the selection process is done, never mind who should be anointed.(yes that’s not a typo). Everyone will have […]

Arsenal: Another load on the road

Good morning Positives, Another road-trip, another defeat. And the 3-1 loss following a spanking victory at the Emirates a few days previously. The story of the first five months of 2018, play, pause, rewind, play.

An Adventure of a Lifetime – Merci Beaucoup Arsene

@5MinuteFinal aka ‘Improper Fan’ puts the pen to work to describe his regard Arsene Wenger Where do I start!

A tear drop hits […]
