    Speed Bumps and a Bright Future

    It’s a testing week to be an Arsenal fan.  In a matter of days, the club has essentially wiped our chances of obtaining this year’s league title.   Surely, this was the season that Arsene had a huge self-realization and couldn’t let it happen again!  To think that we were so nearly caught up in […]

    Where the League Was Lost; A Look at Arsenal’s 15/16 Season

    “All points in the league are equally valuable!” Last season was nothing short of extraordinary.  Our 2015/2016 second place finish was beaten only by the freakish and inexplicable crusade of Leicester City.  I’d like to review exactly which matches lost us the league.  This is immediately relevant to our current do-or-die position in the title […]

    A Narrow Victory and Positives At the Top

    It was not a historic performance that saw us recover ground on the league leaders.  The match against Burnley was not a failure for Ozil and it wasn’t even a failure for Wenger.  The insisted approach to the match was to maintain the formation and system that the squad had been playing up until this […]

    Summer 2016; Transfers and Youth

    Yet again, we have been left foolishly hopeful that Wenger would’ve approached this summer transfer window with Drake’s advice to “play it dirty, not clean”.  As I prepare to head to Los Angeles for the last preseason match of the Arsenal US tour, I realise that we as fans are in the familiar stasis of […]

    Wenger; Out Brigade vs. Knows Best

    The obligatory underachievement for the 2015-2016 season is nearly solidified, and the unrest from supporters is growing more visible by the day.  The loudest of them are AKB vs WOB; holding banners toward the manager, and holding pitchforks for the board.  Having never ventured away from the fence, I thought I’d analyze my stance on […]

    “We’re Ready for a Fight”

    Even with some heavy matches on the horizon, we have a lot to be happy about and excited for.  Monreal has signed a new contract with the club, Sanchez and Ozil are available for selection, and we’re still at the top of the table despite recent slips.  I’ve had to take a break to cool […]

    Alex’s ParadOX; Loan for Chamberlain?

    Check out our last blog post on the Squad, which was featured on GoonerLad.com! With the pace of Theo and an attacking sense that looks as if the entire field is dipping toward the opposition goal, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been exciting the Arsenal supporters since we first signed him.  His explosive and fearless attacks, paired […]

    Squad Mentality: The Treble is On!

    With the seemingly imminent arrival of a backup central midfielder of acceptable pedigree, more and more questions are being asked of the team at the top of the table.  Currently sitting two points clear, we find ourselves in a situation that is very unfamiliar to our recent seasons.  The Arsenal enters the new year at […]
