Arsenal: Sunday Tyne – below the line

Good Afternoon fellow Positives, Sadly, for you, words do not fail me after that excruciatingly disappointing result from the SJP. Be assured though – you do not suffer alone. We have not won a point since the turn of the year  on the road in the PL. Trust me every dropped point is a nail […]

Arsenal: Squashed Hornet and Clean Sheet Sorted

The first half was no great advert for Premier League football and while both sides had flashes of quality passing I did not […]

Arsenal: The Ball in our Court

@LaboGoon and the Arsenal vs Watford programme notes Good morning one and all. Early kick-off for the Arsenal as they host Watford just after lunch. The past few weeks leading up to the San Siro has been tough on all of us as football showed it’s unforgiving side, and with that the natives became restless. […]
