Arsenal: Hide not your deeds nor your omission

Good morning Positive Arsenal friends, A thorough hiding on Merseyside yesterday evening I feel most, if not all of you, would agree. We were attacked at speed and with venom by talented footballers. Their fury unhinged us, and their efficient finishing expelled us from the game in 18 deadly first half minutes. From 1-0 up […]

Arsenal v Liverpool. An Acid Test.

Top of the Premier League table with 51 out of a possible 57 points, second most goals scored, most clean sheets and yet to lose a game this campaign… safe to say the Reds haven’t a foot wrong thus far innit? Good day one and all. Arsenal are up north this afternoon to take on […]

Arsenal: Will the torture never end?

  Good morning Positive Arsenal fans, We emerge from the Christmas pair of games a little behind where we were hoping to be in the PL with two points not picked up yesterday. The effect has been less damaging than could have been the case because of a couple of notable performances from Leicester, of […]

Arsenal: The Boxing Day Shoot

@LaboGoon and Season’s greetings one and all. Arsenal is travelling to the South Coast this afternoon to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the AMEX Stadium; a win would lift us into top-four to add a bit of pressure on Chelsea going into their game vs Watford directly following ours. If the Gunners think […]

Arsenal- “the thunder of Bosnian hooves”

A very good afternoon  fellow Positives, That contest was far from the smooth, efficient and goal difference boosting game I had been hoping for. Despite a unique PL first half in which we actually went in for the half time orange in front the Clarets were awkward opponents all afternoon, and I expect Sean Dyche […]

Arsenal and a portion of Pie Tonic

@LaboGoon adopts a mandibular extension  Much has been made of Arsenal’s impressive 22 game unbeaten run which included quite a few jaw dropping performances. There was a prevailing feeling that we had buried some of the demons of the past, however, all that came to an end following back to back defeats against Southampton and […]

The Season of the Kicks (Same old same old)

Rich makes his debut @Whatsinaname81 Close to halfway through the first season of the new era – Post AW, AAW, whatever- at Arsenal. A period of great change. Some, myself included, hoped that change might just include both a new beginning with the officials who oversee our matches, and other influential parties. It’s still relatively […]

Arsenal: No end product

Good morning Positives, It is always disappointing to go out of a Cup competition at the quarter final stage. To lose to the neighbours, at home, and with our opponents clearly, in my view, a step ahead of us for most of the contest is particularly galling. The evening started brightly. That our talismanic referee […]

It’s A Quarter Final BTW !

Hello you wonderful positive people. Against my better judgement I have decided to preview our Carabao Cup  game against the big white cocks. It’s only the Carabao Cup say some! Not me though, oh no, not a bit of it. It’s a quarter final match against our bitter rivals and I want to win. I […]

Arsenal: Sunk by the Saints

  Good afternoon Positives, A disappointing way for our 22 game run to end. On a horrible,  wet afternoon on the South coast, we were knocked about and put out of our stride by the home side who set out to do exactly that. Nevertheless for long periods of the second half the game was […]
