Vermaelen, Koscielny, Zaha, Big Ted, news, rumours, and other bits.

Morning folks. A while ago i considering having a mascot for this blog – the bear I’ve had since birth, Big Ted. Having initially decided against that idea, I’ve now changed my mind. The Armchair Gooner has a mascot – he’s a dapper gentleman bear with a deep-seeded love for…

Walcott, Ramsey, Koscielny, Giroud, and a 1-1 score-draw that’s better than a 0-0 bore-draw.

Morning folks. Before our past two games, I would have been very happy with a points total of four – a draw at Everton being the one point. I wouldn’t say I was too upset with the manner of our result last night, but it certainly shows poor we were…

The Arsenal starting XI for the game against Everton.

Morning folks. First up – apologies for the lack of a post yesterday. It was one of those days that I cant avoid; busy, busy, and thoroughly annoying. There are restrictions placed upon me, the humble lone blogger, and sometimes I just don’t have enough hours in the day. I’m…

Arsene hits back at the critics, ex-players know best, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Morning folks. I love Christopher Nolan. I love every movie he’s done. Last night I watched The Dark Knight Rises in its entirety for the 3rd time – it truly gets better every time I watch it. You might wonder why an Arsenal blogger is talking about this. The reason…

Gervinho, Ramsey, Mertesacker, Cazorla, Szczsney, and a maddeningly unhelpful 0-0 draw.

Afternoon folks. There are moments supporting Arsenal when all you can really do is omit a disgruntled sigh, and put terrible performances down to experience. Yesterday, whilst we may have not endured swallowing the bitter pill of defeat, we witnessed a thoroughly awful showing from our beloved Gooners, and it’s…

Arsenal’s starting XI for the game against Aston Villa.

Morning folks. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Villa Park. I’ve seen the Arsenal live on a fair few occasions. Arsenal fans regularly enjoy discussions about their favourite goal, and the moment that always stands out for me when quizzed is having witnessed Robert Pires score…

January: Huntelaar to come in? No-go Thierry? Walcott to stay?

Morning folks. It seems Fridays are the days reserved for gossiping. Where once you might think such an activity was the reserve of plump, opinionated trollops in social circles blabbering on about this, that, and the other, these days speculative chitter chatter is associated with football journalists. One of the…

Wilshere, Podolski, Koscielny, the abuse of Ramsey, and comfortable qualification.

Afternoon, folks. We’ve qualified. Wether we top the group, or finish as runners-up remains to be seen, but Arsenal are heading into the last 16 where we’ll most probably have to play Barcelona. Last night was something of a rarity; a fairly bland and comfortable win, and one that came…
