Arsenal Go Cherry Picking.

  Good morning my positive friends. Well that was lovely, wasn’t it? Emery made six changes and we scored five goals. No one can complain about that. We started with two creative players in mkhitaryan and Ozil and low and behold, we created tings. Things like goals and stuff. Hennrikh with a goal and two […]

Picking Cherries?

We are now well in truly into the business end of the season. Expectations are recalibrated as we are at the races for a Premier League top-four finish after teams around us hit a few speed bumps. Good day one and all… We are just catching our collective breath after what has been a very […]

Top Four Position, But Form?

I enjoyed the first half of this game. I thought we made a lot of chances and could/should have scored 4 or 5, Lacazette missing an absolute sitter. It seems a bit mean spirited to moan, but once again we have up some easy chances and in truth we were lucky they were squandered by […]

Arsenal vs Southampton: Time To March To Our Beat

Good day one and all… Arsenal is hosting Southampton at the Emirates this afternoon with both sides in need of three points; the Saints, of course, are eager to escape the drop zone and the Gunners will want to continue being side-by-side with teams fighting for a Premier League top-four place. We did well on […]

Decent Arsenal, Good Win

    Arsenal comfortably progress into the last 16 of the one remaining trophy on offer. That’s what was called for and that’s what we got. Well played lads. I’m struggling to find the words to best describe the performance, the best I can come up with is mundanely efficient. An own goal and two […]

Easy Game Or Huge Test ?

So an early start with a 5.55 P.M. kick off against the mighty Bate Borisov. Talking about mighty powers, I see the AST have written an open letter to EUFA complaining about the  K.O. time. Well I’m sure EUFA are shaking in their boots as the full force of the Arsenal fans are turned on […]

Mesut Ozil, My Hero Or Your Villain ?

    Mesut Ozil, like any modern footballer, is a regular poster on social media. In the recent past he’s put up photos of him in training, has declared himself fit, has congratulated the team on winning a game he played no part in, been supportive in defeat, and then…He dropped a bombshell! A post […]

Did We Master Bate?

I sat down at 5.55 PM , with my chilli and chips on my knee, are readied myself to watch what was a very strong Arsenal 11 about to play a very poor team from somewhere far off towards the east that hadn’t played a game for two months, I expected an efficient display and […]

A Game Brings Sweet Relief.

Good morning all. Later this afternoon we play Bate in a far flung freezing land. Perhaps not the most skillful of opponents, but certainly testing conditions. It will be something of a shock if we don’t return to London with three points in the bag. After the result pulled off by our nearest, but far […]

The Hypocritical Fan.

    When Arsene announced he would be stepping down I felt a little sad but mainly relieved. The infighting and media hounding had worn me down, I was glad it was over. However much I thought of him as a man and a manager I felt the time was right. I thought we had […]
