The Impending Departure Of Theo Walcott. Will He Be Missed?

Morning, folks. Yesterday I promised you a serious post. A post bereft of silliness and my usual copious mounts of blathery goodness. I shall deliver exactly that. No talk of things entirely extraneous to our beloved Arsenal. No, sir. No talk of how eating an entire large bag of Chilli…

And There Goes All The Positivity In One Terrible Display…

Morning, folks. The plan throughout the summer has been to start blogging again when the new season starts. Transfer rumours and such things aren’t the most scintillating of topics, so I decided to take an extended break from this here typing and blathering and come back refreshed, reinvigorated, reinvested and…

Uber-Podolski, The Maligning Of Giroud And 3 Scrumptious Points.

Morning, Earthlings. Last night’s match was a very welcome sight; 3 goals, 3 delicious points and, barring a spell of around 4 minutes when West Ham had the lead, mercifully short of reason for concern or palpitations. As if often the case with Arsenal; what should be relatively straight forward…

More Giroud fury, Theo’s nugget, Santi’s magic and an excellent Boxing Day comeback.

Morning greetings, you luminous and cromulent perusers. I think my stomach in annoyed with me. Were I to liken it to a fictional character right now, I’d say it’s similar to the unhinged unpredictability of Gary Oldman’s villain in Leon: The Professional – I especially imagine shouts of “EVERYONE!!” when…

Fat Sam’s Hideous Army (a): team news, thoughts and predicted starting XI

I get the impression these noises are akin to whimpers, or screams of surrender.  Whatever the…

Huntelaar signs contract, 5 “new signings”, and Boxing Day strikes.

Afternoon folks. The fixture scheduled for December the 26th with West Ham has been cancelled. The strike involving train drivers on the Underground will go ahead, and disruption to all the major services means we’ll have to wait until mid-January to take on the Hammers. Damn those pesky train drivers.…

Theo’s finishing, Giroud’s scoring, Cazorla’s brilliance and Collymore’s bawling.

Morning, crumpets – delicious, buttered crumpets, no less. I thought I’d start my review with a piece of advice. If, like I occasionally am, you’re stuck working when Arsenal are on, and your only means of keeping up with the game is to listen to TalkSport – don’t. Whilst many…

Starting XI for the game against West Ham.

Morning, curious and knowledge-hungry lifeforms of this ‘ere planet. Today, we make a short trip to the home of Allardyce. As a youngster, I loved the tale of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. These days I relate that part of my youth to Arsenal playing a team Fat Sam is…
