Not so unlucky Theo and a brief encounter

I feel surprisingly optimistic about this season. 7 points out of 9 wouldn’t automatically make me swell with pride but I think in honesty lies the future. After watching all three games I am a happy Gooner. We’re still a million miles from full fitness and form but who would expect that in august? Mark […]

Its a funny old game

Blackburn 12:45 kick-off Football, for such a simple game can be mind bendingly complicated. Your team can have its own style, its own identity and its own verve. Sacrifices are made here and there to create these styles and identities. Take Arsenal, the current Arsenal style is based on pace, creativity and movement. The full […]

An abduction of grandiose proportions and will the real safe hands please stand up

So, I’ve been waiting all week to blog that Squillaci has joined and maybe give an idea into where I think he will fit in…but it appears that the guy’s been abducted by aliens or something…there’s probably a reasonable explanation…but where’s the fun in that? This goalkeeper shenanigans keeps rolling on. I really wish we […]

Tangerine dreams and elusive frenchmen

Blackpool’s dream start to premiership life against the pie-eating Latics was something I’d predicted with a few mates […]

Jim Jiminy, Jim Jiminy, Jim Jim Djourou and a few Young Boys

Far be it for me to show a weakness in understanding, I like to consider myself as someone open to views and opinions, however odd and strange they may be to me. Johan Djourou is someone who doesn’t seem to divide much opinion in the blogosphere at the moment, Arsenal fans seem to dislike him […]

Debut’s delight – Liverpool 1:1 Arsenal

As predicted in my last post, I did get rather innebriated and therefore was unable to write this post yesterday. Mainly because I couldn’t remain conscious for any real length of time. However, I will muddle through this now. Firstly, yesterday we saw Premier League debut’s for Kozza and Chamakh…I think they played really well, […]

People in glass houses..

Shouldn’t throw large shit nuggets at tabloid hacks….they tend to smear them and make them count. I’d love to start this post with a positive, but I can’t. Sagna made some comments via the media about Emir Spahic and how he’d love him to be at Arsenal. IT WAS EVEN POSTED ON THE ARSENAL.COM WEBSITE!!! […]

A case for the defence – part deux

I’d like to start off by saying ‘ha, I told you so’ in reference to the Cesc situation. I’m super-chuffed that he’s staying and I believe he will play better than ever as long as we show him we want him. With the IBIWISI in full swing, full blown fallacies and falsehoods are plastering the […]
