Ship

Ramsey ‘The Plunderer’ sails the Good Ship Arsenal into Port Win after a turbulent voyage, in which many crew were lost.

The Arsenal has finally found its way into the safe harbour of Port Win after making its way through several obstacles. First as it set sail from the happy ports of Swansea City, the weather seemed wonderful and we got lulled into a false sense of security. Ahead we thought was familiar land, land which […]

    by Guest Writer Who is Arsenal’s best current penalty taker? The Gunners are currently flying high in the Premier League and sit fourth after seven matches, just three points behind leaders Manchester City.

Arsenal’s existing strikeforce can bring us title glory – here’s how.

Arsenal’s attacking transition holds the key to EPL glory next season. In a period where strikers are tagged with astronomical figures, Arsenal go into the season with a real possibility of having an attacking unit devoid of late changes in the transfer market. With Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott looking as comfortable as they’ve […]

Showdown! Giroud v Benzema: which forwards will take Arsenal Forward?

Some tweets showed up on my timeline yesterday comparing Benzema’s goals scored/matches played versus Giroud over the last few years. The premise for the tweet was apparently someone saying Benzema at €40m was steep and that the player wasn’t really better than Giroud. The numbers shared actually gave that impression. If I have any regular […]

Arsenal 0 Swansea 1 – Sadly ‘Good Old Arsenal!!!’

“As Valencia’s deflected shot found the bottom corner I stared at the screen in disbelief. The sense of unreality swept over me. For a good while longer than a few seconds I’ve been (fruitlessly) trying to persuade myself that this wasn’t happening. This could not be happening. Simply because everything about this goal was so […]

Arsenal v Chelsea: a decent point. Has Thierry Henry lost the plot?

Arsenal’s winning streak came to an end yesterday after our attempts to break down Chelsea’s defense proved fruitless. And look, it’s not the worst way to end our run: we battled a point from the inevitable champions, while dominating the Blues in territory and possession. Yes, the result plays into Mourinho’s hands more than into […]

Daily Mail – Don’t let the overwhelmingly positive Arsenal facts get in the way of a negative story!

“Don’t believe the truth”, say Oasis on the front cover of their sixth studio album. Numbers are often thrown out to defend this or that point of view, proving this or that opinion undoubtedly right.

Wenger’s new tactical unpredictability and balance of selection = BELIEF

Burnley.  We knew what to expect from Burnley. It was always going to be tough, it was always going to be a bit scrappy. Here’s the thing though, this team can win tough, scrappy games. We have robust players like Coquelin, (how good was he yesterday), Alexis and Giroud. Even Özil has more bulk to […]
