Bendnter’s heroics, Jack’s performance and getting yourself out of (and into) a sticky situation.

Morning, folks. Some victories are obtained through dazzling approach play, synergy and breathtaking efficiency. Others, not so much. Yesterday’s very welcome triumph fell firmly into the latter of those categories. Arsenal dominated the game in every respect, yet couldn’t find a way through. It certainly looked like one of those…

New Puma kit, naughty, naughty Wilshere and other such things.

Hello everyone. I’ve been away, but like a triumphant Phoenix rising majestically from the ashes of solitude I greet you again, one and all, delicious readers of this ‘ere blog of mine. I really ought pull my finger out, but with my new found enthusiasm for podcasting, those valuable moments…

Velociraptors and West Bromich Albion.

Afternoon, you wonderful people. I like Velociraptors. They’re an amusing bunch, strutting around in packs and eating people. When I sat through Jurassic Park for the first time at the cinema as a young man, I wasn’t terrified or moved to shield my eyes with my hands. Not at all.…

Smokin’ Jack Wilshere, injury setBacs, and fluff, guff and stuff.

Afternoon/Evening, or to quote Sheldon Cooper, “Prevening” Today is one of those days where I urged to write my the nagging sensation in my head saying to me, “James, you’re neglecting your readers”. Perhaps I am doing just that. Goodness knows, I’ve been far removed from my usual punctilious self.…

Cazorla, Giroud, Monreal, Walcott, Diaby, Arsene and welcome calm waters after a maelstrom of sh*t.

Morning, folks. Ahhhhhhh, and relax. There’s nothing quite like Arsenal’s ability to turn the relatively simplistic into an afternoon of fingernail-gnawing terror. Villa, to their credit, did come and at least attempt to make a game of it, but a narrow 2-1 victory should really have been achieved with little…

Daunting Bayern, Wenger, Wilshere, transfers, troubles, arguments and abuse.

Greetings, Earthlings. Yesterday was all about anger and despair. Today is all about, well… anger and despair. These are not the best of times to be a Gooner. Our season lays in tatters – ripped to shreds by a combination of predictable blunders and achingly shit results. Whilst scribing this,…

Arsenal’s starting XI against Brighton (Match preview)

Hello everyone! You might – some of you – be wondering where the bloody hell I’ve been in recent weeks. Without resorting to diving into self-involved bleating, I’ll just say I’ve had a few problems, and I’ve not been very well. Such things have taken their toll on my blogging…

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.…
