Keep calm and carry on Arsenal

By | August 22nd, 2016|1 Comment

It's been a tough opening to the season, so far, and we must put things into perspective. We're only two games in and we've played the champions away and Liverpool (who are always difficult to beat) at the Emirates. However one point is a poor return, though. Although the defending against Leicester was much improved, it's difficult to forget the Liverpool game, which reached 'Carry [...]

Latest August mauling stirs up memories of 2011

By | August 15th, 2016|Tags: , |0 Comments

Although becoming accustomed to poor starts to seasons, most Arsenal fans must feel traumatised, after the 3-4 mauling at the hands of Liverpool at the Emirates. The score line doesn't really tell the full story. Even when Arsenal took the lead they were well below par. Theo Walcott finished well for the opener, but critics will be quick to point out that he missed a [...]

Asano gives Gooners reason for optimism

By | August 13th, 2016|2 Comments

Takuma Asano may not be a household name, but his performances at the Olympics should have Arsenal fans salivating at the prospect of seeing him in an Arsenal shirt.

What makes Asano stand out from the crowd is his physicality. For a Japanese player, he is quite muscular. Aside from that, Asano has what Ryo had: [...]

Vardy won’t be the new Ian Wright

By | June 8th, 2016|4 Comments

Jamie Vardy's procrastination suggests he won't be Arsenal's new Ian Wright even if he does sign. If I were manager of Arsenal, I'd be looking for other options on the transfer front. Why wait for a player who is not chomping at the bit to join? I'd even consider withdrawing the offer, as it seems obvious that Vardy is hoping for other offers to come [...]

Vardy – a calculated or huge risk for Arsenal?

By | June 4th, 2016|2 Comments

The news that Arsenal have triggered Leicester's £20m release clause for Jamie Vardy has come as a bit of a surprise and that's putting it mildly. Who would have thought that Arsene Wenger would look to buy British again after innumerable disappointments? When I think of success in bringing in Brits, I'm thinking of Sol Campbell, but who else can Wenger say has cut the [...]
