Tough draw but Arsenal make it

By | January 7th, 2017|1 Comment

I just call it as I see it and Arsenal's FA Cup 3rd round game was 'tough' in anyone's dictionary. To go a goal behind so early after a comedy of defensive errors. More worrying still was the fact that Preston could have been more than one up at the break against a toothless and backbone-less first-half Arsenal. Luckily, the Gunners responded well after he [...]

Point is not enough to sustain a title charge

By | January 3rd, 2017|0 Comments

After watching the Gunners go three down at Bournemouth, I was just about to write my apology for daring to suggest that Arsenal could win the title. Despite the amazing comeback to make it 3-3, I still think I called it wrong. Yes, there may be lots of twists and turns to come in the race for the Championship, but Arsenal really could not afford [...]

Giroud – the perfect second striker

By | January 2nd, 2017|1 Comment

If we accept that Sanchez is Arsenal's first-choice striker, then even Giroud's fiercest critics must believe that the big Frenchman offers something which enhances the Gunners' title credentials. Although they are still trailing Chelsea by nine points, Arsenal now have a run of relatively easy games on paper before the showdown with the league leaders in February. Additionally, when your 'second striker' is scoring impossible [...]

For example, think of the musical talent we now will have to do without. I'm not going to comment on the current crop of 'musicians' that are hoping to take their place, but I will say that talent goes where the [...]

Time to bring Holding in for Gabriel?

By | December 19th, 2016|0 Comments

The latest 2-1 defeat in the north east has really shown how shaky Arsenal are defensively without Mustafi. More worryingly, the German's absence seems to have affected virtually the whole team, who are playing under par and even the manager, who made some strange substitutions. When you're losing a game, even against a side with Man City's quality, the most obvious course of action would [...]

‘Clients’ clash no easy ride for Arsenal

By | December 16th, 2016|0 Comments

Interestingly, ahead of the Man City clash, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger referred to the opposition as 'clients'. This, of course, was in answer to speculation regarding Alexis Sanchez's future and the fact that Arsenal have been a selling club in the past. Rumour has it that Guardiola may have been in contact with the Chilean over the possibility of a move north. Officially, it's not [...]
