Gabriel makes it a 100th Arsenal Red Card Premier League Roll of Dishonour!

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 […]

“The leader’s always by himself in a time of doom.” – The Final Days of Unai Emery.

This piece is part of a soon to be released work on Unai Emery. To borrow a quote from the intimidating Mike Tyson in Dark Trade, “The leader’s always by himself in a time of doom.” As was Unai Emery. In his final match as Arsenal manager, fans held signs calling for change, “EMERY OUT […]

Mustafi – if he stays how can we (and he) handle it?

  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 […]

Emery – The Case for ‘his’ defence! – Not a Strong Case!

Emery defence – first calling out…   Don’t get me wrong. I’m firmly Emery In. But then the latest defeat to Manchester United showed how a critical point in our side is NOT being corrected by “el jefe”, Mr. Emery. Now, yes, Emery has a number of issues to solve. And the additions of some […]

Arsene – How can a team you have NOT Mentally Prepared Mentally Collapse? Enough is Enough!

Bayern 5-1 Arsenal. Enough is Enough, Time To Go. June, 2013. Ivan Gazidis: “In a couple of years, We WILL be able to compete at a level like a club such as Bayern Munich.” November 2015. Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal. February 2017. Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal. How much longer are people going to sit there […]

There’s Only One Keown – Ask Ruud van Nistlerooy about this Highbury Hero

This week’s trip down memory lane takes us back to the mid 1980’s, when a young centre back emerged at Arsenal. A man you’d always be thankful he was playing with you, rather than against you, my Highbury Hero this time is the magnificent Martin Keown. Martin was a wonderful defender. He was as tough […]

Leaked document reveals new Emirates statues planned for coming year – EXCLUSIVE!

I had a conversation on Twitter yesterday about what constitutes a legend in Arsenal terms and in the conversation the possibility of the next Gunner great to be cast in bronze at the Emirates was raised. It brought to mind a blog I wrote in February 2013 for my old site. It was written around […]

Arsene Who?

Part one -The first 10 years…. 20 years? 20 years since the unknown French manager walked through the door and who would have thought he would still be manager to this day. Wenger arrived at Highbury in October 1996 and Arsenal fans didn’t have a clue who he was. Wenger had a lot to prove […]

Two player who would not have improved us????

Kante and Payet would not have improved us says Arsene!! – Simeone Would

I have frequently criticised Arsene during the current campaign and he got it wrong yet again last weekend against the Hammers. This time with a decision made prior to kick off, with him bizarrely keeping faith in David Ospina and naming the returning Petr Cech amongst the substitutes. This decision became a bigger source of […]
