The Players, The Club, but not The Coach will now be the focus – #CPFC1AFC1

Arsenal 2-2 Crystal Palace: ‘The Unnecessary Self Destruction of Unai Emery’

‘The Unnecessary Self Destruction of Unai Emery’ I wonder if anyone in Unai Emery’s circle will ever sit him down and tell him the truth. As and when he leaves Arsenal somebody needs to tell him that he blew up his own birthday party. Last Spring many wanted a rest from Arsenal. In a short […]

Arsenal 2-3 Crystal Palace – Emery schooled by Grandpa Roy as Gunners trip in Top 4 chase [Review + Player Ratings]

Hello dear readers and patrons of Gunnerstown! What a time to be back and alive in the Arsenal blogosphere.

Will we finally see Jack and Rambo start together? – The Welshman is key to revive Lacazette!

It seems not so long ago we have played Palace away in that crazy 3-2 win … And indeed it wasn’t that long ago, just a day over three weeks back. You do get those reverse fixtures around New Year. Chelsea, for instance, are facing Brighton for the second time in a matter of weeks. […]
