  • Aug 5th – The worst of the worst
    This summer has been somewhat challenging. Not because SMERSH/Spectre have succeeded in occupying both Downing Street and the White House at the same time. Not because it’s Florida in Iceland and Morocco in London. Not even because PSG, a team owned and operated by a country, have raided their piggy-bank ... read more

  • August 3rd – Pre-Season Ramblings Part II
    Due to the overwhelming demand and ecstatic reaction to Part I of this fascinating analysis I have been compelled, in order to reduce civil unrest, to post Part II of this trilogy. Except this trilogy will consist of just two parts. So, as promised, let the drivel continue. So let’s ... read more

  • July 30th – Pre- Season Ramblings Part I
    It’s been most wonderful to take off the last month or so from the onerous duties of generating reports on this world renowned, widely read website. I know how much the masses have been desperate to read the latest postings so I could deny the pleasure no more. After a ... read more

  • May 27th – Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1
    Fuck me sideways. We just MAGA. I did not see that coming. We were superior, the better team and utterly deserved to win. Could this really be true? Is someone going to wake me up from my (beautiful) dream. Please don’t. This was one of those rare occasions where ... read more

  • May 21st – Arsenal 3 Everton 1
    Twenty years. Pfew up in smoke. It was never in our hands today. And there was now chance LFC could blow it against a relegated team. It was delusional to think otherwise (especially when Martin Atkinson is the referee). But that’s not the point. That will come (hopefully) later on. ... read more

  • May 16th – Arsenal 2 Sunderland 0
    As the actress said to the bishop, this will be a quick one. To be fair Sunderland were better than Stoke. But that’s like saying pooh is better than stinky pooh. And I wouldn’t say that. A nice ½ empty stadium to witness a rather tedious game. Nothing too much ... read more

  • May 13th – Stoke 1 Arsenal 4
    World Beaters! Are we rediscovering how to play football? I doubt it. But today was fun. Borderline enjoyable. I mean, even Michael Dean could not destroy the game for us. Though, in the lead-up to their second goal (and the previous 5 minutes) he randomly decided to let them foul ... read more

  • May 10th – Southampton 0 Arsenal 2
    24 hours later the glow has yet to fade. Two 2-0 scores in a row. Knock me down with a feather. But lez be honest – Love the result hated the game. It helps (again) that Southampton were pretty shit. I can’t understand how they drew at Anfield. Though I ... read more

  • May 7th – Arsenal 2 Manchester United 0
    Finally, I can write a review. So welcome back to AA. Arsenal Anonymous. After last week’s debacle, I’d been so drained of life that I could not face writing a review about the only team that turned up. My efforts at MAGA (“Make Arsenal Great Again”) went up in ... read more

  • April 25th – Arsenal 1 Leicester 0
    That was a pleasant surprise. This had a nil nil draw written all over it. They did not come to play and we could not play too much. Unfortunately I had to listen to the retard Tony Gail bleat all over the commentary. He is such a monumental wanker; so ... read more

  • April 24th – Make Arsenal Great Again
    Apologies for my absence. I’ve been on a top secret scouting mission to South America and Eastern Europe. Thankfully as no-one reads this blog this information can still be considered confidential. I can reveal though that I’ve identified a midget double left-footed inside right back with a beard that is ... read more

  • April 10th – Crystal Palace 3 Arsenal 0
    Sorry. OK, that’s it. Nothing more to say. We were robbed. Three point stolen. Er, no. We were so unlucky – hitting the post – coming up against a goalkeeper that played out of his skin. Er, no We played with 10 men and the referee decided the game ... read more

    Finally. A win. But why am I so angry? Why did I not enjoy that victory? They are so rare these days. Because we had to watch the son of Dean ref this game. How fucking insanely shitty was Martin Atkinson? How is it people as retarded as this ... read more

  • Mar 18th – West Brom 3 Arsenal 1
    There is little, if any, life left in this team. We are heading into the middle ages here. It’s going quite dark and will be for a while. We actually started really well. We pressed and controlled the game. We dominated possession and started with real energy. We looked good. ... read more

  • Mar 11th – Arsenal 5 Lincoln 0
    Phew. That was close. For once 5 goals are scored and we’re the team on the winning side. We should play non-league opposition more often – it’s highly underrated. Though Brighton and Burnley might not be of the same view. Luckily we’re not Brsenal FC.  And thankfully Lincoln will ... read more

    This will be short and sweet. Anyone that knows me knows that I am of a sunny disposition. Some might even say lighthearted and optimistic. But certainly not the type to be bitter, jaded and cynical. Far from it. But, let’s be clear. Last night and the night before that were ... read more

    OK, bring on Lincoln! For all the likely moaning about this result, AW and the failure of this team it’s hard to be too upset. No-one really expected us to qualify. It was always about respectability and improvement. And up until we were reduced to 10 men we have ... read more

  • March 4th – Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1
    So forget the score and forget any humour. This game was all about team selection. And AW got this one wrong. I liked the idea that he changed up the team just not the actual changes he made. So often people complain that we’re too predictable. Well, be careful ... read more

    We are the champions. We are World Beaters. Bring them on. We showed the world today. We rose to the challenge. Against all the odds. We fought the media and the team won. I’m so proud of this team. And, it only gets tougher in the next round. If ... read more

    What’s the fucking point. Why support a team that won’t support itself? Why even bother. Abject for sure. But, and I’m sure others won’t see it this way, so unnecessary. After the first half it really did not have to be that way. It started as a game of ... read more

  • Feb 11th – Arsenal 2 Hull 0
    Three points.  A minor miracle but not much of an achievement. That was very much like the continuation of my visits to the dentist. Valuable though the victory was there was little in the way of enjoyment or satisfaction. Today we started pretty much how we finished. Disjointed, slow ... read more

  • Feb 4th – Chelsea 3 Arsenal 1
    This was a game of two headers. From one they got a goal and we lost our right–back. And from the second header our new right-back could not score. Two defensive players in similar positions. They scored and we did not. So evidentially we’re not human and we don’t ... read more

    Are we mammals? Are we human? Do we have a vertebrate? Saturday will confirm our suspicions. Injuries or not, how we withstand the predictable onslaught from Chelsea post our abject abdication on Tuesday will tell us all we need to know about Arsenal. We could lose this game and still, ... read more

  • Jan 28th – Southampton 0 Arsenal 5
    You got to love the F.A. Cup. And you have to love games like this. We cut through them so easily. So much pace and one touch and two-touch football. No-one dwelling on the ball. Quick passes. Did I mention that AR8 was not playing. As the game lined ... read more

    Belated happy new year to you my reader(s). I’ve been unable to post due to the demands of pre-transfer period scouting on behalf of Arsenal. AW himself requested that I help identify targets for this transfer window and subsequently I’ve been traveling the green fields of England searching for ... read more

  • Jan 7th – Preston 1 Arsenal 2
    Again, it was a game of two halves. This feels like the story of our season. Another cliché which holds true is that the game is 20% talent and 80% mental. Or, in our case 20% talent and 60% mental. Our lack of the mental side of the game ... read more

    We were shit and they were shittier. I know I should be happy but there are too many parts of this team I don’t like. I know we won 4-0. I know we helped our goal difference. I know we kept a clean sheet. But I also know we are ... read more

    Lucky Arsenal? Never. But I’m going out to buy a lotto ticket. They say that good teams have to find ways to win games they don’t deserve; to eek out points. I think we’ve managed to tick that box. What an amazing outcome today. I feel slightly sorry for Burnley. ... read more
