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 […]

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 […]

Arsenal: Eased into the New Year

Good morning Positives, A satisfactory result with the occasional hint of ‘good’ against Fulham, and a welcome salve to the bruising we picked up on Merseyside slightly less than  three days earlier. Looking at the highlights again this morning the 4-1 result does not reflect the number of chances we created (16 shots inside the […]

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: 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 […]
