Thanks for the memories, Heccy – You have not become the player we all believed you would!

  Is Héctor the last name on the exhaustive list of players we hang on for too long? Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Joel Campbell, Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby, Johan Djourou, Nicklas Bendtner and Denílson are the prime examples of players towards whom the Club has been too loyal, despite the evident gaps.“Yeah but on his […]

King Jenkinson: the man who succeeded where all else failed.

King Jenkinson: the man who succeeded where all else failed. It’s official, Carl Jenkinson is a true Arsenal legend.   Forget Bendtner, forget Ibrahimovic, forget Ronaldo (both of them), Carl Jenkinson is a true footballing god. After all, he represented TWO countries at international level. He’s seen off international right backs such as, Sagna, Santos […]

Dean was Poor but Arsenal were Dire – A Wenger record but the song the same

WBA 1-1 Arsenal Not the best of performances last night. And a certain Mr. Dean did rob us. But in honesty, that’s not what’s bothering me. What IS bothering is another sideways shuffle and impotent performance in the final third. We had more than enough, in terms of personnel, to win that game. It’s just […]

Is Monreal, Kolasinac Interchangeability a New Feature of Arsenal’s Play?

It has been a largely positive week for Arsenal with wins in three competitions but it is a feature of the Premier League victory over Everton that caught my attention. It has been a case of finding the time to do some research and write something here. Much has been said about Nacho Monreal, by […]

Arsenal – From a Club who produced talent and sold Big, to a Club who buys Big and sells for Peanuts

£ 887.4m EIGHTHUNDREDSEIGHTYSEVENMILLIONS-AND-A-HALF. Repeat it out loud, do it several times. Again and again. This is the amount of money spent by Premier League clubs this summer, so far. Considering that today it’s July, 20th and there’s still over  a month to go before the transfer window shuts down, this amount could even double when […]

Scouting Report on Potential Signings to Replace those with a Year left on Arsenal Contracts – Part 2

After one of Arsenal’s worst league seasons in recent history it’s no doubt one of the big stories was contract renewals, be that of the manager or of star players such as Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil. Here is part two of this three part series where I look at possible replacements for the nine […]

With No Ozil Wenger to revert to 433 at Anfield?

So here, Arsenal find ourselves having not played two weeks beginning the ‘annual’ week that defines our season. With three matches in three different competitions in eight days, come March 13th we as supporters will have a good idea what the remainder of the season may hold for us. The reason I have said the […]

Arsene should do what’s right for Arsenal and hand over the baton

Whilst watching us succumb to yet another defeat in the Champions League first round knockout stage, I felt deflated but not at all surprised. We’ve seen it so many times, that it’s become inevitable and that will continue to be the case, until Arsene’s departure. If Carlsberg did wake up calls, I would have woken […]

A Manager as his team in the background

Arsenal have become only Champions League Background Noise – There to make up the numbers in last 16 Draw

After yet another defeat like this one, it is difficult to write a measured and well thought piece without it simply sounding like a rant. In the immediate aftermath of such a loss, emotions are often heightened and a cooling off period is required whereby what is then written can at least be considered constructive. […]

Bayern vs Arsenal

Ozil out left in a 433 versus Bayern Tonight as Wenger opts for solidity?

Our annual trip to Munich is coming to a head today, with yet another showdown against the Bavarian giants on the cards. Undoubtedly we are the underdogs once again. Because of our far-from-stellar form, because of the general lack of belief in our ability to get a result, and obviously because Bayern are just a […]
