The Ox: bench-warmer or star performer?

By | October 28th, 2016|0 Comments

A home draw against the Ox's former club, Southampton in the EFL Cup might seem like a just reward after seeing off Reading so comfortably in the previous round. However, let's not forget the Gunners needed a last-minute goal from Santi Cazorla to overcome the Saints last time around. Therefore, no one can think this will be an easy match, especially as Southampton have only [...]

Theo is no ‘almost man’

By | October 22nd, 2016|0 Comments

I was a bit shocked the other day to pick up the Evening Standard, only to discover that Rio Ferdinand laying into Theo Walcott, calling him an 'almost man'.

The timing of these comments are strange, given that [...]

Now that Arsenal have successfully taken Chelsea 'to the cleaners' for the first time in recent memory, perhaps it's time to consider whether the Gunners have what it takes to win the league. Of course, a lot depends on other teams and how they are faring. First of all, let's consider Man City. By all accounts, City were unconvincing at Swansea but, nevertheless their one-hundred [...]

No Champions League hangover

By | September 18th, 2016|0 Comments

After Arsenal's exertions in midweek against PSG in the Champions League, which somehow saw the club return with a point from France, it was pleasing to see the Gunners hit the ground running away at Hull. The Tigers had taken seven points already going into the game, so were not likely to be pushovers. Theo Walcott, absent against PSG, was back from a knee injury and, [...]
