Victory, Injuries And A Banner As Arsenal’s Mixed Season Ploughs On

I have just seen the news and comments on TV regarding the Hull match. I am delighted with the result and the performance however I am very disappointed to see the banner produced for Arsene Wenger`s attention. I am well known as a critic of Arsene but there are two messages on the banner – […]

Manchester United 3-2 Arsenal: when it all comes crashing down

When the match squads were announced, I started to feel reasonably confident. After all, United could only boast the returns of David De Gea and Marcus Rojo (the latter sustained an injury during the game and limped off). None of Jones, Valencia, Smalling or, most importantly, Martial recovered enough to even make the bench. And […]

Arsenal 0-2 Barcelona: valiant Gunners fall short once again

If you asked me to describe our yesterday’s performance in one word I would say “valiant”. It was a valiant effort from the Gunners for the entirety of the contest. That’s why the loss, especially by two goals, was so heartbreaking. We were more than equal to Barcelona for 70 minutes, then, clearly as was […]

Can Messi Ever score past Cech? – No pressure on ‘Gun’derdogs

There have been quite a few articles this week on how we can beat Barcelona. I particularly liked this one from Michael Cox, where he argues the combination of early pressing and deep defending for the remainder of the game can do the trick. Then there were two, very similar in the idea they conveyed, […]

Alexis vs Hull City

If there are any positives from Arsenal 0-0 Hull City they are all in this review :)

Well, that didn’t quite go according to plan, did it? However it also could have been worse: when Aluko took aim from what would be Hull’s only shot on target, I was prepared for the worst. It was a genuine heart-in-the-mouth moment, which would have felt like a cold shower had Aluko been a half-decent […]

What can David do to topple Goliath? A look into what Barcelona has to offer

Despite being two of their respective nation’s biggest domestic sides, the upcoming Champions League fixtures between Arsenal and Barcelona has a tad of an inferiority complex about it. The all-conquering Catalans are heavily tipped to brush aside a team who are currently favourites to lift the Premier League crown (according to the bookies). After some […]

De De De De De De De De De De De De Danny Welbeck – The Come Back Kid Saves the Day

Let me get this out of the way first: Arsenal deserved to win the game. Those who say we were lucky to win it are partly right, but saying that without context would not be doing justice to the Gunners. The reality is such: we played Ranieri’s men off the park. We had 78% of […]

It’s Time to Outfox the Foxes – Gooner’s Love Affair with ‘Le Coq’ to resume on Valentine’s Day

Howdy. Matchday №26 is looming large (in fact it’s already upon us at the time of me writing this), however, I think I won’t make a grave mistake by assuming most eyes will be fixed on Sunday’s fixtures and not so much on Saturday’s. It is understandable: the top 4 teams are playing one another […]

Strong & quick defender but distribution unconvincing.Who v Vardy & Co? — Gunners Town (@GunnersTown) February 8, 2016 The Gooners have spoken: Arsène Wenger should drop our Big Friendly German and trust Gabriel to partner Laurent Koscielny – the best defender currently at the Club by […]

New Year, Same Old Problems – Can Arsenal Turn Things Around?

The greatest threat to Arsenal’s title chances, is Arsenal. We seamlessly transition from the stratospheric heights of sublime perfection to the abysmal depths of hopeless ineptitude. When Arsenal fans are knocking on heaven’s doors, they are advised to declare that they support Arsenal. The range of emotions that one experiences as an Arsenal supporter is quite […]
