    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 […]

    Keeping it Classy; Contracts for Ozil, Sanchez, and Giroud

    How has Giroud’s contract slipped under the media radar?  His current form and acceleration to world status over a relatively short period of time have earned him the right to be in the conversation.  The media frenzy is focusing on only Ozil and Sanchez, by way of Wenger.  The actual list of players contracted with […]

    Boxing Day; Letting the Clock Tick Down

    ‪It is a fortunate coincidence that the adopted blog schedule fell directly on one of my favorite days of the year – Boxing Day! After a couple of dragging results, it was a treat to see Wenger switch up the lineup to start Giroud and Gibbs! ‬ We dominated the first half with stats including […]

    Stoke City; Three wins on the Trot

    The victory against Stoke brings us to three definitive wins in a row.  It is reasonable to claim that we disposed of the opposition in all three matches. This occurred, mind you, amid the notorious November form and the news that Santi Cazorla would be undergoing surgery. Against the odds, our squad is coming together […]

    Full 90 Gooner Interlull Podcast

    I could get used to this!  Following up strong from getting to join the boys on the Gunners Down Under podcast (click here for post/episode)!  Mario and I had an awesome time discussing the first team, our current form, Arsene Wenger’s 20 years in charge of the club, and some regrets from the transfer market.   […]

    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 […]

    International Break and Arsenal Legends

    Finally, it’s over!  The break comes at such an awkward time, with the transfer window closing and teams just starting to gel.  I didn’t pay close attention to the World Cup 2018 qualifiers, but our boys have been getting in the spotlight for their international performances.  Some for the right reasons, others for media trolling […]

    Opening Day Disappointment, Round 7

    Familiar. The shocking stats that are floating around include 1 Arsenal win in the last 7 starts to the season.  As a stat man, one would expect Wenger to over-analyze and repair an obvious and completely objective fault.  Negatives on the day will consist of a missed penalty, soft fouls given away, and possible injuries […]

    Preseason; Arsenal vs. Chivas Live in Los Angeles!

    I was lucky enough to see the Arsenal play Chivas de Guadalajara in Los Angeles during the last match of their preseason Tour of the USA!  It was amazing to see the Arsenal squad from a different view without the unbearable commentary.  I couldn’t help but to form insightful new opinions on certain players and […]

    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 […]
