Why is our defence poor? – Part 2 I wrote earlier that the inclusions of Bellerin, Tierney and Holding won’t alone change our defence. However, why is our defence crap? In this part, I’ll explain where I feel we’ve gone wrong. For me, it’s in stages and has regressed year on year for […]

Do Arsenal actually have a deeper, better quality squad than Man City?
December 4, 2015 1
“My optimism, and I surprise myself in saying this, is down to a renewed faith in our squad players over that of our rivals and particularly those on the blue side of Manchester.”– Dave Seager. Granted, Dave said this a couple of days before our deflating 1-1 draw at Norwich so I’m not entirely sure […]
He’s a Boy who can do anything – The Rise of Hector and the balance he gives Arsenal
September 8, 2015 4
Just how important has Bellerin become to Arsenal? Sometimes in football player’s progress at a good pace, sometimes they progress even quicker and in the case of Hector Bellerin they progress at a similar pace to our young Spanish right backs sprint speed – just to be clear that’s rather quick. If we cast our […]
Who will win the battle of the Arsenal Right Backs?
July 24, 2015 2
Not so long ago, in a Galaxy far far away a similar article was written on this very subject. Sky Sports decided to cast their rather wealthy eyes over Arsenal’s right back options: would it be Sagna, Eboue, or Hoyte chosen by Wenger to start the 07/08 season? They chose Hoyte. Yes, you heard. They […]

Bellerin for the Win-g? – Can Hector be our future Right Wing Solution?
May 10, 2015 4
Though there seem to be other pressing concerns at the moment like Who should play in midfield? Who do we need to sign in the summer? We need to beat Swansea on Monday. And of course the endless goalkeeper debate for the cup final. Thought I’d take a break from those and address a suggestion […]

This is part II of the Walcott Conundrum article that began earlier today here from @Lordhillwood. Part 1 – Press Here Looking at goal ratio per game only reveals part of the story, we need to look at key aspects of TW’s game over 3-4 seasons to see how he has developed (if at all) […]
A slight change to WHAT IF… Wenger always knew But…… Sh.t happened!!
February 6, 2015 1
Been hectic times for me, so haven’t had the opportunity to chat with all you lovely, happy/moany/angry Arsenal fans. I started a piece at the beginning of December, and, funnily enough, the topic still stands today. Even though, I feel had I sent it our at the start of December I would have received my […]

Bonjour my fellow Gooners. With the World Cup running, we all miss our Arsenal. Fortunately, our players are in duty with their national team. Especially the French, who I’m pleased to follow in another World Cup journey. And as you (may) have seen, Koscielny, Giroud and even Sagna, are doing really well. Didier Deschamps, French […]

DB’S SILLY SEASON DIARY 2014 The great thing about doing this fortnightly is that it gives me more of a chance to observe how our moods and reactions can change during the Silly Season. For instance, when I started jotting down stuff for this instalment, the end of the world was nigh, as Cesc Fabregas […]
