Who Are You, Who Are You.?!?!

  Good morning people. You might note that I said “people”,  and I haven’t used the normal “good  morning positive people”. I revisited the ABOUT US on the site and  immediately felt glum. “If you are a fan of the club who needs to vent their frustration by denouncing players who are “Notfittoweartheshirt”, or who delights disparaging […]

Arsenal: Here be Dragons

@LaboGoon says ….. Good day one and all. Arsenal host Cardiff at the Emirates Stadium in a match that will have huge implications at both ends of the Premier League table; while the Gunners hope to maintain a push for Champion League qualification, the Bluebirds are aiming to move clear of the relegation trapdoor. When […]

What’s Going on?

    Feck. Bollocks. Balls. We were doing ok; then we conceded; then the familiar tale of trying to break through a deep defence while being wide open for counters. Urgh. There’s gotta be another way. It’s gotta be better to lose another way than this way. Our way doesn’t seem sensible enough to me. […]

Black Friday For Red London.

  Here I am again, happy as can be. Well that was a desperately disappointing night, wasn’t it positives? Simply put , for most of the game  we looked the better team, but we were not. If that makes any sense? Until they scored, bloody Sanchez of all the devils it could have been, with […]

Arsenal Utd FA Cup Preview

  We face a Utd team buoyed by seven victories from seven under their new manager, with 19 goals scored and 4 conceded in that run. A number of players, notably Pogba and Rashford, have been thriving since Mourinho’s exit and ,presumably, enter the match with sky high confidence. However, it cannot be ignored that […]

Red Sky at Night, Arsenal bite

Good Morning Positive Arsenal fans, The game was  billed a “pivotal” and “season defining” in some quarters for the club and if that was the reality then it was a test passed.  And we passed in the way that I want an Arsenal team to win a  local derby, playing football, scoring goals  and in […]

Arsenal: It’s a Big ‘Un

@LaboGoon casts off the weeks cobwebs and heads for N5  Good day one and all, The headline fixture this weekend will no doubt be Arsenal’s second London derby in as many weeks, with Chelsea taking the short trip across the capital to the Emirates Stadium. Last Saturday the Gunners endured a miserable time at the […]

Arsenal: How it (didn’t) happen

Good Morning Positive Arsenal fans, Another morning, another inquest into an away defeat against an ‘Ammers side who I anticipated would be put away with a little bit to spare. The aim was to be back on level points with Chelsea by 3pm, even in we knew the chance of Newcastle getting anything at the […]

Arsenal and the early lunch

@LaboGoon at the head of an orderly queue  Good day one and all. Arsenal is travelling to the London Stadium this afternoon to take on West Ham United; after a mini break from Premier League action last weekend as the FA Cup took centerstage. Ah… West Ham. That 3-1 win against them at the Ems […]

Arsenal, Dean and the keen Tangerines

Good morning Positive Arsenal fans, An early evening victory over a genuinely plucky Blackpool was an easy watch. The game had a balance of decent football from both teams and was enough of a contest until our third goal to ensure that nagging doubt lurked in the back of my mind. We had seen the […]
