Lucozade and lemon drops I always try to base my opening piece on what I think is the general feeling coming out of the game. The general feeling coming out of that game for me and most I think, was that yet again I soiled my britches and I feel like Arsenal need to give […]

A Game of 3 Headlines: careless and unfocused Arsenal fall to Imaginary Opponent [MUN 2-3 ARS]

A Game of 3 Headlines POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES I love to write these post match thoughts. I find it cathartic. It’s my pub in a largely pub-less country. I’ll tell you what I love the most about the posts. It’s choosing the headlines and then the opening thoughts. I drove home yesterday after watching […]

Damned if they do, damned if they don’t – Arsenal dodge tricky West Brom banana skin [WBA 0-6 ARS]

A little glimpse, but not enough POSITIVES,NEEDS and HOPES There was so much about yesterday that could’ve been better. Happier. Perhaps, hopeful.

Quicker, why quicker? How Arsenal’s pace overwhelmed Newcastle – the template for Thursday success

Quicker, why quicker? POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES Watching that performance yesterday I had two main emotions…….. relaxed and frustrated.
