The Malaise Exposed

By | November 5th, 2017|1 Comment

Back in the day when I watched Spurs youth and even coached one of them, I used to think they played with a sense of entitlement. It was if they already thought they were ‘all that and a bag of chips’ before they’d actually achieved anything. Any setbacks and they would be at each other’s throats. Individually, they were skilled, but as a team mostly [...]

Arsenal have more maracas than Troy thinks

By | October 22nd, 2017|0 Comments

Watford’s Troy Deeney may have done Arsenal a huge favour by questioning their lack of maracas...or something like that! The Spanish word that Deeney used is generally thought of as vulgar, so I thought I’d use a euphemism. To me, if Arsenal had maracas, they would be playing to a rhythm, which should involve chasing back as well as racing forward. Since that comment following [...]

Arsenal’s Watford worries

By | October 14th, 2017|0 Comments

As has been well-documented elsewhere, the international break couldn't have come at a worse time for Arsenal.

However, what the assembled journalists seemed afraid to ask (making it [...]

Dick Law’s departure and what it means for Wenger

By | September 16th, 2017|0 Comments

Dick Law's departure at the end of this month comes after a turbulent transfer window, where it was much ado about nothing. The exit door did spin a bit, but the entrance still retains the cobwebs that Arsenal fans have become accustomed to. The question is: who is to blame for the lack of quality incoming players and the inability to retain those already at [...]

Reaction to Ornstein’s shocking revelations

By | September 6th, 2017|2 Comments

We all know that something is dramatically wrong on the field and with all the reported shenanigans going on off the the field, it is difficult to see how Arsenal will turn this disappointing start to the season around. One of the most shocking bits of news, if you can believe it (and I can) came from David Ornstein. I'll let one of our correspondents, [...]
