Giroud

It is now mid-March and we are really getting into the business end of the season. This is a crucial time for us and a time we have notoriously been known for falling away. A clinical performance against West Ham supplemented an effective performance against Manchester United. It is clear and has been clear for a while now that the “we don’t care about the opposition” mentality of Arsene Wenger’s simply does not work, especially against the bigger teams. I don’t know if this is intentional but we saw two different Arsenals in the past week, and they brought about the same result, two important wins. We are in a great position now to defend the FA Cup and could even nab second place in the Premier League. [click to continue…]

Why Arsenal are stalling with Giroud as striker

by Rayed Mamun on March 3, 2015

Giroud

Like with many things at our football club, there are many topics which polarise opinion. One of the more discussed topics is that of Olivier Giroud. His horror show against Monaco and his less than convincing performance against Everton where even though he scored, he missed two sitters, has made the Giroud debate a hot topic once again. The French striker has been a wonderful servant for us for almost three years now and remains a valuable member of our squad. I admire and respect Wenger’s loyalty towards him however it is slowly becoming clear that while big forward is a good player, he is never going to take us to the next level. [click to continue…]

Manchester City 0-2 Arsenal: How Arsenal Coq Blocked City

January 21, 2015

The fans have been driven to insanity, and indeed, Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Due to our tactical naivety, this was our first away win against a “big 4″ club for […]

July 13, 2014

As always, the silly season is full of suspense as to who we will sign. It is even worse during a  World Cup year, where some of the best players in the world are away and deals are harder to get done. After the tension and drama of having to wait until the last minute […]

3 things we learned from the FA CUP Champions! Arsenal 3-2 Hull City

May 21, 2014

1. Mental strength was shown It was absolutely gutting to go 2-0 down at such an early stage. The overall thinking of it all was basically “not this again”, and if I’m honest, we were lucky that this was Hull City and not an elite team (with due respect) because things could have got really […]

May 13, 2014

1. We’ve really missed Aaron Ramsey It goes without saying, but we have really missed our Welsh maestro. He started the season with a bang, and reminded us yesterday just what we’ve been missing. Its this sort of consistency that really shows that this wasn’t just a fluke season for him, he’s back and picked […]

Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal: More questions than answers

March 24, 2014

  The dust has finally settled on what felt like was an atomic bomb planted on our title aspirations, a bomb, placed by ourselves. It is hard to even make out the words on what to write after that, it is just an absolute aberration, and I can only wonder what is going through the […]
