Arsenal: The moment as little diamond

Good morning the Positive Arsenal crew, As the digital clock on the scoreboard reached 10:00 to go I had this morning’s match write-up sketched out in my head. It was along the lines of “an exciting game”….., “plenty of chances at both ends”, …..”some noteworthy performances from players on  both sides”…., “but an inexplicable result […]

Arsenal: Swatting the horrid hornet

@LaboGoon opens the Watford programme  Watford is sitting pretty in top 4 on the Premier League table after six game weeks – ahead of Tottenham, Manutd and Arsenal… who woulda thought that?! Good day one and all. The Gunners are six wins on the bounce in all competitions, and are building confidence and progress with […]

What if Arsenal Has Given Up On Top 4-Permanently ?

  Before I go into my suggestion, let me say that is all it is. I’m not saying this is the case, or even that I believe it’s the case, only that its possible. I’ve used some things we know (facts), some things we have been told (hearsay) and some speculation and fully accept the […]

Arsenal: Beesplattered, finally

    Good morning all Positives, Another largely routine win against Brentford, a team I cannot ever remember playing before in any competition. Checking the record books our lat competitive game was in May 1947, the last time the Bees wee in the top flight,  so for once it was not my recollection that had […]

Arsenal: Do you think we’d crumble, Did you think we’d lay down and die?

Good evening Positives, For the first 55 minutes of the game against Everton today I admit I was apprehensive. A game against the Toffees for which every tradition and statistic had marked down for a home win, and probably a confident performance from us, had gone awry. Our football during that 55 minutes was wayward, […]

Arsenal: Wet day, but no sticky Sunday

@LaboGoon opens up the wrap this morning After a slow start to the season Arsenal recovered well to now have four victories on the bounce in all competitions; and it’s off the back of that form that we host Everton at the Emirates this afternoon to cap off another great weekend of Premier League action […]

Arsenal: A stroll on Thursday evening

  Good morning All Positives, An evening we all expected to be an easy run out developed as planned. The Ukranian side had some ability and were fit and organised but never threatened an upset or even, unfortunately, to give our fringe players who stepped up for the evening a hard work-out. The half empty […]

Arsenal Taking Goals To Newcastle

A nostalgic look back, no wait – back to our away-winning ways with Unai Emery by @ArsenalAndrew Once upon a time, any action that could be likened to “taking coal to Newcastle” was the sign of a needlessly pointless activity. That Arsenal scored two goals and, for the first time in a year, earned maximum […]

Arsenal: Going To Newcastle With Lock Pickers

Today’s lock-picking contributor is @labogoon Newcastle have endured a grim start to this season, and sit in the bottom three with just one point to show for their efforts; hopefully Arsenal will add to their misery as we visit Tyneside this afternoon. Good day one and all … With a better start to the Premier […]

Arsenal: All Change No Change

@GoonerReverend and the Arsenal early Autumn vibe   When Arsene Wenger said farewell at the end of last season the vocal element of the Arsenal fan base credited it as being the seminal day in Arsenal’s history and that everything would instantly get better now. With the appointment of Unai Emery the same section of the […]
