A (SAD) tale of a once mighty football club

A (sad) tale of one football club As you have likely noticed, my absence on here has been… considerable. The reason is simple: having a full-time job required more of my time and energy than I thought it would. So, having just left my place of employment, I thought a summary of my time there, […]

After Wenger we wanted a Tinker Man but Emery fast becoming a Stinker Man?

When I was watching Watford batter us during an abysmal second half showing at Vicarage Road, I was heavily reminded by how we played Huddersfield away last season. That game was our first league win on the road in over two months. On the day we went 2-0 up after the first 45 minutes and […]

A tribute to Aaron Ramsey – Je ne regrette rien

A tribute to Aaron Ramsey By now, you have to live under a rock not to know Aaron Ramsey has played his last game for Arsenal. The fact it’s Ramsey’s last season has sparked a lot of debate over his persona: have the Club done enough to keep him, how important he is for the […]

Sokratis returns but Rob should be Holding on to his place for the visit of Watford

We will be looking to extend our winning streak to 5 leagues games and 7 overall when hosting Watford today. A task made harder than usual by the Bees’ surprisingly excellent form up to date: Xavi Gracia’s team are on 13 points after 6 games, losing one (to United) and drawing one (to Fulham last […]

Arsenal 2-0 Everton: Gunners stick it to Toffees, but defense remains a sore point

Now when a match begins first thing I look out for is defensive improvement from Arsenal. Perhaps ironic given our flaws under Arsene Wenger, whose defense was as rag-tag as it gets in the last few seasons. With the Frenchman I guess I just gave up at some point. I realised Wenger was unlikely to […]

Doherty and Pereyra should provide good value for money – GW6 preview

Right, it’s been a while since I’ve done this fantasy column. Hopefully I’ll have enough time and inspiration to keep it going over the coming weeks, as I’m back to work pretty soon. I’ll try to keep these pieces concise and informative. So, without further ado: The defenders dilemma The question on everyone’s (or, at […]

Dodgy distribution again

If Emery wants to persist this way surely Holding and Leno can’t do worse than Sokratis and Cech?

The Gunners notched their first away win this season, and made it two league wins on the trot in the process, but I think it will be fair to say the manner of the win raised more questions than it answered. Let’s get straight to it. Cech’s distribution is abysmal – again While it’s clear […]

Ozil set to return at Cardiff but will he be providing the ammunition for Aubameyang or Lacazette?

Hi everyone. We face Cardiff away this coming Sunday and the game will come as another test of our credentials. After an underwhelming, though somewhat expected, outcome of the first two games, the Gunners went on to win against West Ham. The performance was not ideal from what I have glimpsed, but at least we […]

Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal – Is Guendouzi becoming essential to how Emery wants to play, while Stars Fade?

While it’s never pleasant to witness your team lose any game of football, let alone several on the trot, I find it extremely hard to get bent out of shape this morning. Context is king here, of course. Had we lost the two opening fixtures under Arsene Wenger, people would have been out in force […]

It’s Undoubtedly Torreira and Lacazette time at the Bridge

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I wrote home. Hopefully that will change from now on. It’s Chelsea away this Saturday as Emery tries to get a better result out of his team than on the opening day. I hasten to add some of our play against City was encouraging and will hopefully continue […]
