Theo is the new Arshavin

By | May 17th, 2017|3 Comments

With 19 goals to his name this season, surprisingly, Theo Walcott is not every Arsenal fans' cup of tea. I've heard some so-called supporters say he's not fit to lace their boots, which is ironic given that in terms of physical fitness, he has more stamina than most professional players, let alone being able to match fans with one foot in the pub and the [...]

Fourth is still a possibility

By | May 13th, 2017|0 Comments

Who saw two away wins back-to-back coming? My guess is very few people or pundits could predict that the Gunners could beat Stoke (who are always tough to beat) and Southampton on the road, especially as the Saints took points off Liverpool recently. Talking of the Reds, they've taken six points from Arsenal this season, so it would be strange if they risked throwing away [...]

Arsenal pass an ‘easy’ test in exam season

By | May 8th, 2017|0 Comments

Man Utd at home is never an easy fixture, and neither is taking on a team managed by Mourinho. However, on this occasion, although United fielded much more than £100m-worth of talent, the opposition were there for the taking. Despite it being examination season, this was not a true test of Arsenal's mettle. You felt the Gunners just had to turn up to win this [...]

Play Ospina & expect a cricket score v Chelsea

By | May 1st, 2017|5 Comments

St Totteringham's Day is not cancelled, as one of the posters at Spurs's postponed. Until when though? If there is a change of manager at Arsenal and the playing staff respond, there is no reason why Arsenal can't finish above Spurs again in the league, like they have for the last 22 years. At the most recent game, only Cech performed well, keeping the [...]

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 [...]

Time for clarity not clashes between Arsenal fans

By | April 12th, 2017|Tags: , |0 Comments

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 [...]

Theo saves Wenger’s blushes

By | March 12th, 2017|0 Comments

Theo Walcott is the main reason why Arsenal are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Without the work of this unselfish player, it is difficult to imagine how the Gunners would have broken down resilient 'little' Lincoln. When I write 'little', it has to go in inverted commas, as some of the players resembled rugby players, so dwarfed their svelt-like Arsenal counterparts. They were [...]

Arsenal TV calls it right?

By | March 5th, 2017|0 Comments

After seeing Arsenal Fans TV before the Liverpool game, I really wanted to say that the supporters' reaction to Wenger is nothing but 'knee jerk'. However, after the dismal performance against Reds and the inexplicable decision to leave Sanchez on the bench, I have to question the sanity of the manager's decision. Wenger claimed he needed the height of Welbeck and Giroud to counter Liverpool's [...]

100-goal ‘write-off’ proves himself

By | February 21st, 2017|0 Comments

Apart from Wenger, the next biggest bone of contention at Arsenal over recent years has been Theo Walcott. How many Arsenal fans have I argued with about him? How many derisively call him 'Wally'? How many say his hat trick away in Croatia was a fluke? How many will refuse to admit that Theo has achieved something by joining Arsenal's 100-goal club? How many will [...]

Who wants a ticket to Dullsville when you ride Wenger’s roller coaster instead?

By | February 18th, 2017|2 Comments

Judging by most accounts, Arsenal fans that want Wenger out are now the majority. Until someone runs a football club election, which will probably never happen, we will never know for sure. However, it is safe to say that Wenger's popularity has hit a trough. That said, I don't believe you need the fans behind you to be a success. It certainly helps, but it's [...]

Arsenal need more than StatDNA

By | February 4th, 2017|0 Comments

According to the New York Times, Wenger was convinced to judge players by the verdicts presented by StatDNA, after the Chicago-based company claimed that Chu Young-Park and Chamakh were pups. Apparently, the same company recommended Gabriel, who has had some 'iffy' moments in an Arsenal shirt, in my opinion. However, the Brazilian was not a disaster against Chelsea, deputising for the injured Bellerin, who was [...]

Arsenal gift title to Chelsea

By | February 1st, 2017|0 Comments

All this talk about this Arsenal squad being better than 'the Invicibles' really sticks in the craw, especially after the disappointing defeat at home to Watford. Of course, Wenger said that to justify not dipping his hand into the transfer kitty to make the Gunners true title contenders. However, the comment shows that his belief in some of the players is more than they deserve. [...]

Arsenal convince the doubters

By | January 28th, 2017|0 Comments

A 5-0 away win is always something worth shouting from the roof tops, no matter the opposition. When you bear in mind, Arsenal were facing cup kings Southampton, who have already made it through to the EFL Cup final, that makes the achievement all the more impressive. However, many predicted an Arsenal victory, especially now that Southampton have a cup final to look forward to. [...]

Central midfield is still Arsenal’s Achilles heel

By | January 22nd, 2017|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

After seeing Arsenal only just about emerge victorious against Burnley, I can't help but think that the London club still need to strengthen central midfield. Although Granit Xhaka has an awful lot of talent, in that he can spray long-range passes with a fair bit of accuracy as well as supply well-weighted short passes and break up play, I am still concerned about his temperament.
