A more sensible review perhaps..

Yesterday was painful. Frustrating. It highlighted every little problem with the Arsenal team this season. When the 4-2-3-1 formation isnt working (i.e. in the absence of Fabregas) we need to do one of two things, switch to 4-4-2 and put two strikers up front to pressurise the opposition defence or what I’d prefer move Wilshire […]

Moving swiftly on.

As I sat in disbelief, my mobile bleeping away with the taunts of Mancs a certain calm washed over me. We can’t highlight the howler at the end as the issue, Koscielny and Sczcesny didn’t lose us the game because we shouldn’t have been at 1:1 at that point. In terms of fact, we lost […]

Wellington Silva – suffering at Levante

The usual spite from the Daily Mail continues. Usually I wouldn’t give stories like this the time of day, but the tone of the Daily Mail article frustrated me, they are almost revelling in dealing this spiteful article, which is no doubt misquoted and mistranslated. Wellington is struggling to settle and isn’t getting much game […]
