Cup progression, and Bendtner: the rebirth of a fallen idol… kinda.

Morning, folks. Last night’s game, as far as spectacle and entertainment goes, was bloody awful. 90 minutes of tedium was bad enough, but when extra time loomed ominously on the horizon, I wasn’t particularly heartbroken when my stream for the game decided not to work. I’m pretty sure I didn’t…

West Brom (a): Thoughts, team news and potential starting XI

Morning, you rowdy lot. To your average Arsenal fan, Nicklas Bendtner is an anathema. He certainly possess a degree of talent, that is hard to deny. When the mood takes him, the lumbering Dane can be a handful for even the more cultured and capable of defenders. However, these days…

Odds, sods, Bendtner, Viviano and Gooner pods.

Morning, you wonderful little so-and-sos. I could have given this post a naughty title. Nothing licentious, mind you – I refer to those hit-grabbing monstrosities that plauge the average news feed. Why would I consider such a thing? Well, the first edition of the Goonerspehre podcast is out and I’d…

Gervinho, Ramsey, Chamakh, Wilshere, Podolski, and an abject failure in every respect.

Morning folks Before the snarly, disgruntled. how-the-fuck-did-that-happen post begins, I feel there is something all Arsenal fans should say; congratulations to Bradford City. They played their hearts out, showed the kind of hunger, spirit, and determination we lacked in almost every position, and they richly deserved the spoils. Defeat may…

Arsenal’s staring XI for the game against Bradford City (match preview).

Morning folks. There used to be a time when I wouldn’t fear Arsenal playing anyone. The giants of Europe could be lining up in opposition, and I’d hardly bat an eyelid such was my confidence in the team. How times have changed. The current Arsenal team fills me with anxiety…

Koscielny, Giroud, Walcott, Chamakh, Arshavin, Martinez, and I’m at a loss for words.

Morning folks. Blimey. Where do I start? If someone had told me yesterday that Arsenal would concede 5, score 7, and Chamakh would score not one, but two really good goals, I’d have quickly labelled that person as bonkers, and moved to have them sectioned. Football is a bizarre and…

Starting XI for the game against Reading.

Morning folks. Call me a pessimist, if you will; I think this particular competition represents our best chance of some silverware. It may be brandished “Mickey Mouse” in many circles, and It may contains consistently weaker teams than you’d expect to meet. But such is my yearning for a trophy,…

An interview with Robin van Persie, Wilshere, and getting shot in the face.

Morning folks. As is customary, I’m writing last night for publication today. I ache. My god, do I ache. Paintball is fun, make no mistake; but it is a tiring pursuit, and one that I found, much to my chagrin, involves getting shot in the face quite regularly. At one…
