Granit Xhaka – De Facto Captain

    Good day one and all. I was talking to my old ally @shotta_gooner and he asked me “Why were you so vocal in your support of Xhaka, when almost everyone else had set against him?”  . That got me thinking and as you can see, writing. First thing is to try to understand […]

Arsenal Being Arsenal – At Last.

      Well that was rather good. Beautiful ,fast ,aggressive , organised football in the first half to open up a 2 goal lead, then controlled shape in the 2nd half to maintain the advantage. What a wonderful refreshing change to the way we have laboured for the bulk of the past 18 months. […]

The Dawn Of Arteta

Mikel Arteta reign as Arsenal’s head-coach gets under way with a trip to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth this Boxing Day. Good day all. With Arteta now in charge his immediate goal will be to get the team back to winning ways, having taken over with a dismal run of just one win […]
