Wright is wrong about balance of power shift

By | April 30th, 2017|1 Comment

Ian Wright is a pundit I have a lot of time for. As a footballer, he was an absolute legend, not just for his goals, but also for his never-say-die attitude. However, I can't agree with his assertion that the balance of power has shifted in north London. No matter what the result is of the Spurs v Arsenal local 'derby', player-for-player Tottenham are not [...]

Little in the way of mix-ups at the back for victorious Arsenal

By | April 24th, 2017|0 Comments

'Behind every great man is a great woman' goes the old saying, or is it just a part of a Eurythmics song? Anyway, the woman behind Arsenal's man-of-the-match against Man City in the FA Cup semi-final was definitely Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, who was dancing in the stands following her boyfriend's outstanding performance. The love of her life, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain delivered a beautiful cross, which [...]

Big improvement, but…

By | April 17th, 2017|0 Comments

Compared to Palace away, the new-look Arsenal with three at the back and Cech back in goal looked slightly less vulnerable than usual, but still made it seem incredibly difficult to beat relegation-haunted Middlesbrough at the Riverside. Although Sanchez was named Sky Sports' man-of-the-match after scoring one, he also demonstrated his alarming tendency to give the ball away unnecessarily. Still, no one can complain about [...]

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas is saying it now on Sky Sports and it really is high time Arsene Wenger clarified the future. Will he stay or will he go? If he won't say, he will continue to cause a 'Clash' between the fans, if you'll excuse the pun with the 'New Wave' band, who penned a song about indecision. In  fact, it is difficult to [...]

A is for ‘abject’

By | April 11th, 2017|0 Comments

There is only one way to describe Arsenal's performance at Crystal Palace: abject. Although the 3-0 scoreline may have flattered the Eagles, they certainly deserved their win. The penalty that wasn't but was given anyway added to Arsenal's woes and made the result more embarrassing, but the most shocking aspect of this defeat was the insipid nature of the performance. There was little to no [...]

Can’t be bothered with Baggies?

By | March 20th, 2017|1 Comment

Insipid. As much as I dislike one-word sentences, the last Arsenal performance is only deserving of a short description. The reason for my lack of words is what I would perceive as a lack of effort. No one seemed to bust a gut to get behind the ball. No one seemed to prepared to stick with their man at corners and let me repeat some [...]
