  • Top 4 and the “Who gives a fuck” cup
    It’s finally over. At last, I can honestly say, we have done some good business. The huge gap in the team due to Sanchez leaving has been masked by Henrik Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into the side. Credit to the club for being proper hagglers and getting the best amount ... read more

  • Welcome to Arsenal FC – Mediocrity at it’s best
    If you are an Arsenal fan – I empathise with the depression. It’s not easy to see your team go down to mediocrity for the same reasons all the fucking time. This sick mentality of ill-managing players is so biannual, yet it has become a thing at Arsenal. The problem ... read more

      If Theo Walcott can just be used right, he will be as good as Lionel Messi – the delusional guy who had 6 beers and is speaking rubbish Hope all is going well in the Arsenal sphere this year – the below checklist should give us a good idea. ... read more

  • Haha…its gets better everytime.
    Why bother with a post for the game that took place last night? I mean… We played shit and the referee didn’t help. But the latter isn’t really an excuse we can use against a team like Nottingham Forest, can we? It was a master-stroke for us to use the ... read more

  • Masked by Morata’s crappy performance/ Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea
    I saw the Chelsea game yesterday. When I saw the starting line-up, I was pretty confused since it’s not always that one starts a novice against a team like Chelsea (credit to Wenger in trusting this young lad Niles – the boy had the game of his life) The game ... read more

  • Stop Slandering Alexis…
    One must stay true and honest to what one feels. This may be a debatable topic and so I want to make it clear that its okay to not agree with my opinion. That’s your right. Alexis Sanchez is one player whom Arsenal fans have a very mixed feeling about. ... read more

  • Title gone/ Urge to reshape and reschedule expectations this season
    Today is 14th December 2017 – a little less than 2 months ago, I had written a post “Cruel Expectations” citing the realistic goals for Arsenal this season. The old me would say : Win the premier league | Win the Europa League | Win the FA Cup. But now, ... read more

    The last 2 wins for this Arsenal side was some-what ‘relaxing’, especially when you consider the Burnley game. But this game vs Manchester United is as always, a classic! I did not expect any philosophy changes between Wenger and Mourinho for this game and when the team sheets were announced, ... read more

  • [Report/Ratings] Arsenal 2-0 Spurs ; One of those derbies..
    This was indeed Arsenal’s best starting line up as the game kicked off today. This time Wenger opting to spearhead the attack with Aleksandr Lacazette – a player who I highly rate. Arsenal started on a positive note with the midfield energetic and the defence playing a high line. Both ... read more

  • City 3-1 Arsenal : If you want to be optimistic, we were not that bad
    Starting with five at the back when I switched on the game on Sunday, the first thing I thought to myself was “Is he going to park the bus?” To be honest, I would not be surprised if Wenger did choose to do go down that route with a team ... read more

    The first real test for this Arsenal side is going to come this Sunday against a team which has revolutionalized the art of the 3 man defense and a competent and fully functional midfield. When Conte got thrashed 3-0 at the Emirates last season, it might have seemed that he would ... read more

    So deadline day came to an end…and we lost sold Chamberlain. The transfer makes perfect sense. Arsenal cashing in on AOC for 40 million pounds, instead of letting him go for free. What’s interesting is the fact that Chamberlain chose Liverpool despite almost ending up in Chelsea – the same ... read more

    This season isn’t going to be pretty. Imagine you’re in school, and for no reason, Timmy (Class clown) thinks it funny to scratch the chalk board with his compass. That terrible screech.
