Much has and will continue to be written about Bukayo Saka and his exploits in the famous Arsenal shirt. A shirt, lest we forget, that he has worn since he was 7 years old. 2 seasons ago, after the disappointment of non-selection for the 2020 FA Cup win, still aged only 19, virtually singled handed, […]

Jorginho is the new Edu, but it’s still no party without Partey
February 25, 2023 0
Last Saturday’s lunchtime’s goal fest at Villa Park, might have offered us an insight into what life without Thomas Partey could look like, in the short-term at least. As someone who’s views, I respect, suggested to me, with Jorginho playing at 6, Arsenal will have to outscore opponents, because we will concede goals. The adopted […]
Is forgotten man Kieran Tierney the one to re-ignite Martinelli until Jesus’ second coming?
February 14, 2023 2
A colleague on GT inspired me to articulate something that has been on my mind in recent weeks, by writing this excellent piece earlier today. Thomas Bahnson identified a problem that has become evident as Arteta’s team have recently struggled to break down a well-organised low block from Newcastle, Everton and Brentford. He also pointed […]
The Full unedited and this side of PC – Arsenal’s most amusing chants
January 22, 2023 1
My first visit to Highbury was in 1976, and I have been attending Arsenal matches fairly regularly since the early 1980s, when my parents finally allowed me to make trip across to North London on my own. It would be fair to say therefore, that I have heard and sung hundreds of fabulous and frankly, […]
Gooners: chill! Smith Rowe’s return trumps Mudryk’s non-arrival.
January 17, 2023 0
Arsenal under Arteta are sitting 8 points clear at the pinnacle of the toughest, most competitive league in Europe, and it seems we Gooners are still able to find something to complain about. Despite dominating the ‘old enemy’ at their place, securing a comfortable win and a clean sheet, some supporters are amazingly still attacking […]
What to we do with Albert Sambi Lokonga – Fan’s have their say!
January 13, 2023 1
So, at half-time of Arsenal’s FA Cup third round tie at lowly Oxford, there was a collective fanbase bemoaning that may of the squad’s fringe players simply were not of the quality required for the team to sustain its title challenge. However, there seems to be one player more singled out for criticism than others, Albert […]
Frustration, frustration, frustration! At Newcastle, at match officials, and at Arteta’s lack of game-changers
January 5, 2023 10
Well, that was a hugely frustrating match. In fact, frustration is my overwhelming emotion after being held to a goalless draw at home by, let’s not forget, a Champion’s League challenging team, in Newcastle. I am sure we are all frustrated at Newcastle’s footballing approach, which in all honesty, changed completely after we totally dominated […]
Arteta will give Eddie Nketiah the opportunity to fill the big Jesus’ Boots
December 15, 2022 4
The World Cup has been enjoyable, with surprises galore and of course star performances from our boy Bukayo. However, as Arsenal fans are desperate for our domestic form to continue later this month, we will all have been watching with fingers crossed that none of our players picked up the dreaded injury. Hence, the news […]
Dear Gareth – An Open letter from a Gooner, on Saka, White and Ramsdale
November 15, 2022 0
As we Gooners savour our team sitting pretty, 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League, our thoughts, for most of us at least, may turn to the World Cup. We probably don’t want it or approve of it, but we do have several of our stars, although thankfully not as many as […]
Does Gabriel Jesus’ goal drought matter?
November 9, 2022 2
When a team wins so convincingly, scoring 5, you would expect that team’s centre forward to have been among the goals. So, when Arsenal did exactly that against Nottingham Forest, and Gabriel Jesus failed to score for the 7th successive match in which he featured, some in the media may have been questioning the Brazilian’s […]
