“It’s only Blackburn. They’re useless and had a man sent off. It doesn’t hide the issues”

Good morning to you, the deliriously joyous. For quite a while now I’ve been a little morose and pessimistic about The Arsenal. Bad results, bad injuries and bad performances have steadily chipped away my ability to look at the future with hope. Like many of you, frustration and chagrin has…

Supporter division; binbags and handbags

Morning, lifeforms and curious units. Twitter is beginning to grate on my nerves. What I enjoy as a medium in which I can expose my blog and engage with like-minded souls has shown it’s true colours, unfortunately; an ever-increasing maelstrom of racism, abuse and idiots with the wit and personality…

It’s all a little bit predictable

Evening all. Profligacy in front of the old ‘onion bag’ has cost valuable points on numerous occasions. Season after season passes with the same story; Arsenal create myriad chances, and they either squander them in the most frustratingly inept manner, or the opposition keeper becomes superhuman for 90 minutes.

Transfer D-Day; excitement, thrills, jubilation and Jack Wilshere.

Financially, securing 4th spot in the league is important, but I…

Bac back, not Jack and Chamakh’s lack of knack in attack.

Some media outlets are already selling the news as the worst possible scenario; he’ll miss the rest of the season, and Euro 2012. It’s only a matter of time before The Daily…

Eden Hazard will NOT join Arsenal.

Good day to you, delicious peruser of this here blog of mine. Amidst the petty squabbles and peculiar ‘AKB’ posturing that makes up the vast Goonerverse at the moment, a great deal of chatter has surrounded rumour of Eden Hazard’s imminent signing. I don’t pretend to not secretly hope we…
