Red Flags Over Arteta

Red Flags Over Arteta

The problem with Mikel Arteta, thanks to his long association with Arsenal, his excellence as an Arsenal player, his unflappable cool, amazing hair and piercing stare, is that we all either quite like him, or like him a lot. The static nature of the Arteta Out ‘movement’ is too obvious a point to labour.  Nobody […]

Arsenal Need To Use Their Heads Before Spurs Lose Theirs (again).

  Arsenal’s best chance for an away win in a big ‘un – writes @LaboGoon If we thought last weekend was eventful in English football, midweek said ‘hold my beer’. It was happy hour at the Emirates (of course), ‘out with the (not so) old in with the new’ for a few managers and for […]

Arsenal Taking Goals To Newcastle

A nostalgic look back, no wait – back to our away-winning ways with Unai Emery by @ArsenalAndrew Once upon a time, any action that could be likened to “taking coal to Newcastle” was the sign of a needlessly pointless activity. That Arsenal scored two goals and, for the first time in a year, earned maximum […]

Arsenal: Going To Newcastle With Lock Pickers

Today’s lock-picking contributor is @labogoon Newcastle have endured a grim start to this season, and sit in the bottom three with just one point to show for their efforts; hopefully Arsenal will add to their misery as we visit Tyneside this afternoon. Good day one and all … With a better start to the Premier […]

The Sanchez Catastophe: Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Ozil

Surely no smiling matter, Alexis? The false dawn of the West Ham result has proven to be a particularly bitter pill to swallow. That game was a convincingly dominant, effective and exciting performance and one we all believed would surely herald the start of our traditional end of season run-in that would see us stake […]

Facts, Damn Facts And Statistics

Yesterday on PA Shottagunner posted a great thought provoking piece looking at some of the numbers behind Arsenal’s current achievements and also the tepid, if not a little wayward, response by the media to it. Although a tad ‘stat-lite’ compared to his recent other excellent pieces, upon reading it I felt 98.8% of readers would, like me, […]

Atkinson 1 – 4 Arsenal – But Let’s Not Mention The Ref

A turnip in black. “The referee’s incompetence has done the home side no favours here having simply provoked The Arsenal into administering a punitive thrashing” Or so I wrote on Twitter at about the 1-3 point of yesterday’s trip to the North East.  It was probably one of my more sensible remarks on a day […]

It Was 1-0 To The Arsenal And That Is Never Wrong

Today’s article is from our very own Gf60 Neither offside nor handball as clearly shown by this image, courtesy of Andy Nic chose a very good weekend to visit the D Day memorial in Normandy. Even his cultured prose would have had problems with this game.  As Steww mentioned in his preview regarding fans’ […]

Football – It’s A New Dawn, It’s A New Game

A few years ago it was a relatively straightforward matter to feel depressed about the state of The World’s Favourite Game. For a start, it seemed there was little that was beautiful about it any more, either on the field or off it. Imagined or otherwise, it felt as though the richest clubs were getting […]

West Ham v Arsenal: A Prize-Less Draw

West Ham v Arsenal: A Prize-Less Draw

  Honours even, it’s Boleyn over and out A gripping, fast-paced and compelling derby ended in frustrating stalemate for both teams and their fans, with possibly the visitors feeling the dropped two points more keenly than the home side.  Having been 0-2 up on the brink of half-time, Arsenal found themselves three-two down within minutes […]
