Arsenal: Fine blend of youth and experience

  Good Morning Positive fans, Very little comment required from me on last night’s performance and a comprehensive victory. Emery chose an Arsenal team that reflected our already strong EL position in the group, as well as the December fixture list. Youth was paired with experience, silky skill with a couple of players with the […]

Abu Dhabi FC Might Kill The Golden PL Goose!

  Yesterday I read that Abu Dhabi FC are considering building a training complex in London. This will be passed off as a genius move by a wonderfully organised football club to give them a marginal advantage when playing in London. They will claim it saves them travelling time and avoids the need to stay […]

Arsenal: Personality at the Vitality

Good afternoon fellow Positives. A tricky trip to Bournemouth safely negotiated and the required three points banked. By no means a fluid performance but we worked hard against opponents who are much improved from the callow Cherries who tip-toed into the top flight just two seasons ago. For us it moves us on to Chelsea’s […]

Arsenal: No Empty Toasts on the South Coast

@LaboGoon emerges from international hibernation, and thank goodness…  Here we are again… breathing a huge sigh of relief with the last international break of 2018 out the way and equally excited to be at the start of what is going to be a very busy period with the fixture list chuck-full in the run up […]

Arsenal: Lazing on a Sunday afternoon

Good morning Positives, A game nine and a half out of ten of us had marked down for three points but, as it turned out, a game I was happy to escape from with the solitary single point as reward. The unbeaten run goes on, and we remain in the chasing pack for he CL […]

Arsenal: Beware sheep’s clothing

@LaboGoon addresses his flock this Sunday  Good morning one and all. Arsenal host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates this afternoon with the intention of going into the international break with a win …… and nothing less. Given the remarkably competitive nature of teams above us on Premier League table, getting 3 points against ‘lesser teams’ […]

Arsenal: A steep price for effortless progress

Good morning Positives, A respectable performance last night from Arsenal against limited opponents. A win and three points would have tied the qualification package perfectly but taking into account events in the 25th minute it was not ever likely to be a night I remembered for football reasons. Danny’s injury was, let me not beat […]

Arsenal: Judge Me in May

@foreverheady gathers ye footballing rose-buds this Autumn afternoon  ‘Judge me in May’, Arsene used to say, and for many, many years those who had clamoured to dismiss him after a couple of poor games had to eat some kind of pie come the end of the season – though with the rise of social media […]

Arsenal: Points of honest endeavour

Good Morning this Sunday morning Positives fans worldwide, The best game of football that I have watched for a long time yesterday evening. Both sides played quality football and had footballers in very position who were comfortable with the ball and had confidence in controlling and using it, despite the press of the opponent. A […]

Arsenal: A Hard Day’s Night ?

@LaboGoon – he’s working like a dog, not sleeping like a log Good morning one and all… Unai Emery kicked off his Arsenal reign with a pair of defeats against Premier League title contenders Man City and Chelsea. Following that the team went on an eye-popping 13 game unbeaten run in all competitions and now […]
