GLORIOUS FAILURE IS AN AFFRONT TO PROGRESSING STANDARDS

Posted by & filed under News Review.

Well, what an average week. One bad decision snowballed into multiple. The biggest problem this week was how we approached the Europa League.¬†We went big, played a group that had been rinsed physically by the Leeds game, we didn’t win.

EXCITING PROGRESS HAPPENING AT ARSENAL

Posted by & filed under News Review.

Well, well, well… Klopp was the fraud all along. Arsenal win tomorrow, we’ll be 3 points off the Champions in the most nuts season on record. It is quite incredible how a side can go from looking like the greatest footballing machine ever created, to total bums after one bad signing, a couple of injuries,… Read more »

LOW INTENSITY AFFAIR. WAS IT A CHOICE?

The Europa League last 32 kicked off to a fairly muted start. Arteta rolled with the same line-up he used against Leeds United at the weekend. On reflection, that might have been a mistake. I felt like the game was leggy at times and we certainly lacked the zip we saw in our last 3… Read more »

What a joke of a club they’ve become. All the… Read more »

Arsenal finally matched a good performance with a full 3 points. Mikel Arteta put on a well-choreographed win against a Leeds team that comfortably beat Leicester 3-1 a few weeks ago.
