The One Hundred Just feel gutted about Saturday’s result, we didn’t deserve the decisions, we didn’t deserve the result, but we do deserve constant referees and we do deserve consistent use of VAR. We also passed a milestone; Gabriel became the unenviable 100th Gooner sent off in the Premier League. So, here is my […]

Analysis of whether Saliba-Gabriel can work as a defensive partnership?
August 27, 2020 3
It has been impossible to get away from the excitement around the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes. As a fanbase, Gooners certainly don’t make it easy to disconnect: tracking planes, pulling traffic feeds, the works. Beyond the more fringe craziness though, it is easy to see why a lot is anticipated and expected. There is no […]

Season Predictor for Unai’s Second Campaign
August 18, 2019 1
Can Unai improve upon last season? As we kicked off a new season over in the land of Geordies, it’s time to think about what as fans do we expect our club to be doing over the course of the season. In the simple terms, this is something I would like for us to do […]
Unai Emery – Different manager, Different philosophy
August 1, 2019 0
Different manager, Different philosophy There was a young man called Unai Emery Who had 45 million to spend, apparently So he brought a Brazilian prospect And a defender, he then loaned back And we thought, ‘Different manger, same old story’ Wilf Zaha was named our main target But Palace wanted more than our […]
Kos the (former) Boss?
July 16, 2019 1
Player power hits Arsenal The Gunners has been immune, to some degree, from the major player power incidents of other top English clubs. United has the Paul Pogba matter, and Chelsea has had numerous incidents in recent seasons. So it seems – with captain Laurent Koscielny’s refusal to participate in the USA tour […]
Mustafi – if he stays how can we (and he) handle it?
July 10, 2019 0
I’ve been as rueful towards Shkodran Mustafi as any other fan. Yes, he won the World Cup with Germany. Current and past players of Arsenal were in the same side, such as Mertesacker, Ozil, and Podolski. However, he’s made numerous errors in his Arsenal tenure. And in crucial games to boot – Kun Aguero […]
Please Mr Emery put Mustafi away for the season and let the sun shine on Arsenal again
April 22, 2019 0
What a weekend for sitting out in the sun and enjoying an early summer. Blue skies all around and I should be happy. Unfortunately, a cloud hanging over AFC is spoiling my mini holiday. I have read Mike McDonald`s excellent article and he very succinctly describes his dissatisfaction with Mustafa. I don`t think I could describe […]
Another 9/10 from Koscielny and one end and Laca at the other sees Arsenal brush aside a limp Napoli
April 19, 2019 0
Napoli 0-1 Arsenal – Europa League QF Second Leg (0-3 agg.) It took a beauty from Lacazette to secure an excellent win in the San Paolo stadium. Napoli was anticipated to be strong, forward, and pressing, as they needed to be. But they weren’t. If anything, I was surprised at how limp […]
Emery and his staff have made Arsenal better simply by improving our players individually – The Unspoken illumination!
April 19, 2019 1
The Unspoken Illumination’ – Positives, needs and hopes! Personal improvement has never been and will never be headline making. (unless you are Pep perhaps!! I was watching the game last night and suddenly I was struck by the absent headline of the ‘New Arsenal.’ It was just after AMN confidently breezed past Insigne on […]
