Super Aubameyang, ‘Henryesque’ leading the Youth by example – Review and Player Ratings

Newcastle United 0-1 Arsenal review Premier League – 11th August 2019     It wasn’t a classic and flowing Arsenal. But it was a winning Arsenal. Spurs, Liverpool and City all won by more, but then we still did well to get the win. Our star forward, for me, played like a prime Thierry Henry […]

Newcastle United vs. Arsenal preview FIRST PL GAME OF THE SEASON  Sunday 11th August 2019      So it’s the first game of the season, and pre-season is done.

Arsenal, it seems, left their Inferiority Complex in Baku – Barcelona 2- Arsenal 1 in final pre-season run out

‘HAS SOMEONE LEFT THE INFERIORITY COMPLEX IN BAKU?’ –     Positives, Needs and Hopes     I am not just trying to be rose tinted.   Coaching taught me a while ago that winning matters but the game is often a collection of separate observations.   Take the score away as it matters little in […]

Joe and Eddie Star in Charlotte – Sounds Rude!

The Charlotte sunshine was almost unbearable. We sat in the top tier fully exposed and routinely purchasing $5 bottles of water from the equally sad looking schoolkid who was lumbering around his grate of drinks in 90 degrees. I think my gullibility was partially down to the warped idea that I was helping this poor […]

Does the Match-day fan want to see Homegrown Hale End talent playing for the Cannon in 2019/20? This one does!

As I write this we are in peak silly season when it comes to transfers and various players of mixed pedigree, and admittedly some I have never heard of, being linked to my Arsenal. Today I wake up to hear we have had a second official bid for Tierney. Celtic’s talented left back rejected.  I […]

Will get his chance

Emery’s New English Lions, Nketiah’s Chance and the Fornals/Pepe links putting pressure on his creative players ahead of the January Window – Part 1

International breaks can be rather dull and more so these days with little Arsenal interest, certainly from an England perspective. In a tenuous link however we happy Gooners, are more than quietly confident that our interest in The Three Lions may well change in the not too distant future. In recent years, we have pondered […]

Positives, Needs and Hopes…. Arsenal overcome Lazio with great introductions for Torreira and Lichtsteiner

Positives, Needs and Hopes…. Arsenal vs Lazio First thought (pre-game)… that is obviously not our starting team vs City, right? I wonder why Emery has not given 90 minutes to that team.

Time for Niles, Willock, Nketiah and Nelson to shine against the Otter Hounds

There are only three days and two training sessions between Arsenal and their best shot at a trophy in this, so far, season of gross under achievement. This being the case it is hard to imagine that any player with a realistic chance of starting at Wembley will start this evening in the Europa League. […]
