Spineless Arsenal board are the reason for decline – nearly 14 years on from Highbury move

Arsenal’s 0-3 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday brought most people back down to earth following the amazing 9 minute spell which saw the Gunners end a nine-match barren run to win 3-1 at West Ham.

The 65th minute on December the 10th Positives, Needs And Hopes In my lifetime I cannot remember a more obvious sliding doors moment since Lehmann got sent off in the Champions League final.

Norwich City 2-2 Arsenal – review

The first game of the Freddie era has come and gone. And in many ways, it was the more things change, the more they stay the same.     Look, I love Freddie. He had red hair, and amongst Henry, Bergkamp, Vieira, Pires, et al., he was arguably our best player in the 01/02 double […]

‘I looked around, but I can’t find HOPE’ When Unai Emery took over I was so excited. To be fair, much of this excitement was due to years of hoping for change.   I was impressed that he was making Ozil and Ramsey accountable for poor performances, that we seemed to have more defensive energy […]

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal [5-4 Penalties]: ‘A Seminal Moment at the Crossroads’

‘A Seminal Moment at the Crossroads’ Any day now it’s about to happen. The Arsenal board will arrive at the crossroads. They have to decide. Most certainly a seminal moment in our recent history.

Is Emery’s lack of structure hurting our most talented group of youngsters in years?

I watched our match against Vitoria of Portugal. They are 4th in the Portuguese top league. Not a great pedigree, but good enough to lead us a merry dance for 80 mins when Pepe equalised their second goal. He then went on to score the winner with a last gasp free kick. That was a momentous […]

Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria SC: ‘Pepe lays a rug on Madface’ [Positive Needs & Hopes]

‘Pepe lays a rug on Madface’ Sliding doors moment for Nicholas Pepe and Unai Emery?? For the first 70 minutes I was wondering if Emery’s last real positive was slipping away. We’ve been very good in the EL and yet again we were poor AND poor and losing. Not only has Pepe’s two moments of […]

Was Arsenal’s summer transfer season really a success?

Was Arsenal’s summer transfer season really a success? On the 30th of September, Arsenal clashed swords with Manchester United under unrelenting Mancunian skies, hoping to lay down its first significant marker of the Premier League season. However, they failed to do so as Unai Emery’s men crawled to a tame stalemate. The Gunners, despite finding […]

Arsenal 4- Liege 0: Youngsters romp to victory with verve and vigour [Positive Needs & Hopes]

‘TRANSFER NEWS…. Arsenal advised to sign Joy and Freedom’ …..on free transfers no less! I’m not convinced that the noticeable increase in joy watching my Arsenal and the freedom that they played with against Liege was solely down to weaker opposition. They’ve had three cracks at this similar line up and won 0-3, 5-0 and […]
