Liverpool vs Arsenal, A Familiar Outcome

Notes from Anfield: Lots of noise from the Liverpool fans, always makes me feel sad that we no longer have that kind of passion, but the majority prefer the groan/slag as a way of supporting our team. Third kit on view, looks handsome, still cant help feeling the trusty yellow gives us a link to […]

Liverpool Away , No Problem.

Good day one and all. The Premier League clash of the weekend sees Liverpool host Arsenal at their Anfield Stadium in what could turn out being a cracker of a match. Both teams come into this game on the back of two wins from their opening fixtures. Despite neither side looking in particular good nick, […]

Arsenal Players > Arsenal Performance

  A lot like last week, many of our players had good games and yet the team played some turgid stuff. We dominated possession and yet made few chances. I’ve long said that scores mask performances and this is yet another example. I can’t think of a single Arsenal player that wasn’t decent, but our […]

Will We See Some Swagger vs Burnley?

Good day and all. Arsenal got their Premier League campaign underway with a winning start against Newcastle last Sunday. This afternoon we are going at it again… hosting Burnley at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners weren’t at their best up Upon Tyne eh; had a hairy moment or two but being the first game and […]

Poor Game, Great Start!

    A hard fought 1-0 win has us leaving our first away game with all 3 points and a clean sheet. I know, A CLEAN SHEET, imagine that? Given how many of our better players were unavailable ,for one reason or another, and given our poor away form in recent years, that was a […]

A New Start in Newcastle.

Good day one and all… Following a three-month furlough the wait for the 2019/20 Premier League campaign is finally over, with the mandatory promise of being better than the year before. Some of the usual suspects has already been in action as we saw both Man City and Liverpool picking up where they left off, […]

The Greatest Transfer Window Ever !

  At 5 P.M. yesterday I was quite pleased with our transfer window, Despite the upsetting news that Iwobi had been sold to Everton, I thought we had mad a decent fist of slightly improving the squad. Then the more twitter posts and blogs I read, the more confused I became. People were celebrating like […]

Super Fans or Super Chumps?

In the last few years we have seen the rise of what’s know seen as the super fan but I think really they should be called a“pseudo superfan”. The whole notion of a super fan seems a total fallacy. These people aren’t superfans, relativity shows us that they are a cog in the workings like […]

In Defence of the Arsenal Defence

    Last season following the opening 2 games Arsenal went on that unbeaten incredible. Yet it always seems as if we were there for the taking as our defense was all over the place, but thankfully Auba and Lacazette were in good nick and truly spared our blushes. This was also the time where […]
