Could Wilshere be the alternative Xhaka partner to Ramsey (Getty Image AFC Sturat Macfarlane)

Wilshere ‘No.10’ rather than Ramsey ‘Wannabe 10’ could be a better link to Ozil ‘At 10’

Brilliantly inspired by Dave’s blog about Jack Wilshere (by the way: it’s not Wiltshere, it’s not Wilshire, it’s Wilshere. The number of times his name is misspelled is appalling), I started thinking about how our former academy gem could actually re-build his career at the Arsenal. Our man has quite some way to go after […]

Flamini opens up on a painful reunion

Mathieu Flamini talks about facing his old friend Ozil on New Year’s Day

The End of a Fine Bromance? I knew this day would come. I didn’t want to believe it would happen, but eventually it had too. We had become so close, friends, confidants, we did everything together and now it had come to this and I just don’t think I can do it, I just can’t. […]

Spy in the camp

Secret Agent Wilshere – Checking on ‘Howe’ Cherries Boss is shaping up.

Many folks seem to be surprised by Jack Wilshere’s loan to Bournemouth. I wasn’t too surprised by it, to be honest. Let’s face it: Arsenal have, on paper, a stronger and more competitive midfield in place for this season, with Granit Xhaka signing on this summer and Mohamed Elneny in the winter window to replace […]

Arsene Wenger and the Emirates years: In search of silverware

      Part 2 -The Emirates years In Arsene’s last 10 years there have been a lot of low points at the club. There has been a long drought without a trophy and Wenger’s team been have been seen to bottle it under pressure. After moving into the new Emirates Stadium in 2006, Wenger […]

It happened again – A Glorious Day in the Sun in North london

If you are a regular reader of my posts, then you know I’m generally unperturbed by Spurs. For example, I hate Chelsea much more than Tottenham. Guess I’ve just never taken Spurs seriously. Had I been a bit younger (I’m 22), I could have said Tottenham haven’t finished above Arsenal in my entire lifetime. As […]

Arsenal - A Rudderless ship

An Invisible Man, (Theo) Mr Anonymous (Rambo) and a Rudderless Ship – All Change Please!

Where do I even begin this blog? I haven’t had much mojo for blogging recently, so I have been quiet. After that travesty at Old Trafford, though, I’m not going to hold back. Arsenal need a major overhaul and I am starting to wonder if Wenger is the man to do it, or if he […]

Ambling Alp

The Big Foolish German Strikes again – The ‘Ambling Alp’ lets team down as PER usual.

Well, we didn’t really expect anything else did we? I have read a lot of tweets today and they vary between blaming Wenger and berating the players to applause for our performance for 70 mins and even slight praise from Alex. Alex as always is optimistic, and short of the Emirates being swallowed by a […]

Wenger’s Surprise selection pays off – Arsenal and Ox back in the game!

Courtesy of Shoot Magazine for whom I write a 2 weekly column I was fortunate enough to be at the match as their reporter so I will be stepping in for Alex our usual match reviewer as he is on holiday. There was some surprise when the team news showed Gabriel retaining his place alongside […]

Dip in form and application recognised by Wenger

Tough to understand Wenger’s in game decisions of late and persistence with Walcott

After midweek wins for Leicester, Spurs and the two Manchester clubs, our disappointing draw with Southampton felt like a defeat. Whilst there will undoubtedly be a few more twists and turns in the title race, a paltry return of just three points from the last twelve on offer, coupled with the knowledge of difficult away […]

Was Gibbs persuaded to Crock Coq or was it a case of mistaken identity? Conspiracy Theorists Unite!

Only at The Arsenal !!! Injuries are a way of life at The Arsenal, Diaby, Wilshire, Ramsey have all had extended stints on the sidelines, via various causes, but never by one of our own.  Le Coq has just returned from a two month sabbatical and was looking not far off his best alongside Elneny, […]
