It’s good to be back! …. Sort of. (Originally on YAMA)

The sun was out, the stadium was roaring, the stage was set, THE ARSENAL WERE BACK! For the first 60 minutes anyway, and then everything seemed to go a bit dead – atmosphere included. Nevertheless, I found it pleasing that despite losing our [former] best player and [former] captain, we looked an unchanged, comfortable and […]

Apart from this sentence, this is a non-Van Persie related post, weird isn’t it? We’ve been linked with a few players in the past week, Hugo Lloris of Lyon (£15M), Stevan Jovetic (£25M) amongst a host of others, including Wigan’s Victor Moses (£10M). But transfers aren’t the main topic of this post. I have some […]

It’s become clear that fans tend to pick and choose who to blame for our hiccups throughout the season, sometimes it’s just out of ignorance, sometimes it’s out of frustration. In other instances, the ones laying the blame have an incredibly valid point. This season – since Arshavin left – there have been two main […]

Buy or bye? Make or break? Wenger’s got it sorted, finally. (Originally on YAMA)

“Bye or buy” – the words on the lips of many Gooners at the end of this January, as we failed to add any significant improvements to the squad. Excluding Henry’s short-term loan deal, the only player we signed was 19-year-old Thomas Eisfeld from Borussia Dortmund. The fans knew the squad wasn’t good enough to […]
