Arsenal- “the thunder of Bosnian hooves”

A very good afternoon  fellow Positives, That contest was far from the smooth, efficient and goal difference boosting game I had been hoping for. Despite a unique PL first half in which we actually went in for the half time orange in front the Clarets were awkward opponents all afternoon, and I expect Sean Dyche […]

Arsenal and a portion of Pie Tonic

@LaboGoon adopts a mandibular extension  Much has been made of Arsenal’s impressive 22 game unbeaten run which included quite a few jaw dropping performances. There was a prevailing feeling that we had buried some of the demons of the past, however, all that came to an end following back to back defeats against Southampton and […]

Arsenal: No end product

Good morning Positives, It is always disappointing to go out of a Cup competition at the quarter final stage. To lose to the neighbours, at home, and with our opponents clearly, in my view, a step ahead of us for most of the contest is particularly galling. The evening started brightly. That our talismanic referee […]

Arsenal: Sunk by the Saints

  Good afternoon Positives, A disappointing way for our 22 game run to end. On a horrible,  wet afternoon on the South coast, we were knocked about and put out of our stride by the home side who set out to do exactly that. Nevertheless for long periods of the second half the game was […]

Arsenal: Not Unwary in the Parish of St Mary

@LaboGoon leads us to the South coast After going through the yawns of international breaks “tis’ the season” of football jolly as the games just keep rolling in. Good day one and all… Arsenal is at the South Coast this afternoon to take on Southampton under new manager Ralph Husenhattl; this of course is his […]

Arsenal: Training routine satisfactory

Good morning Positives, A cold night at a half empty Emirates provided an opportunity for me to get seats for the family and friends so a good time was had, more memorable for my chance to play the informative old fart for those attending a live football match for the first time. Of the game itself Arsenal […]

Arsenal: A long week over and the race run …..

Good morning Positive people, I am the wrong man to provide any form of detailed match review today. “Not much difference this week then” I hear some of you say, but this week   I did not seen the game live or on stream, but listed to it on the radio and followed it on Twitter. […]

Arsenal: Rock, Paper, Scissors

Good Morning Positives, We anticipated a keenly fought contest yesterday between two teams determined to secure a Champions League place, if not better, this season and the almost 100 minutes of action did not deviate from the script. Both sets of players left the field drained of energy and great credit to them all. Last […]

Arsenal: Fine blend of youth and experience

  Good Morning Positive fans, Very little comment required from me on last night’s performance and a comprehensive victory. Emery chose an Arsenal team that reflected our already strong EL position in the group, as well as the December fixture list. Youth was paired with experience, silky skill with a couple of players with the […]

Arsenal: Personality at the Vitality

Good afternoon fellow Positives. A tricky trip to Bournemouth safely negotiated and the required three points banked. By no means a fluid performance but we worked hard against opponents who are much improved from the callow Cherries who tip-toed into the top flight just two seasons ago. For us it moves us on to Chelsea’s […]
