Hiya Goons, The penultimate fixture of 2017 ended in our favor, but only by the smallest of margins. Just like last time out, a neutral fan would have probably been very upset to hear the final whistle, as the action was almost relentless. However, just like the last game, Gooners [Read More]

Hiya Goons, On Tuesday, Arsenal qualified for the semifinals of the Carabao Cup by edging by West Ham 1-0 at the Emirates. It was a very boring game. Next up is match-day 19 in the Premier League, the halfway mark between the season’s start and finish, and the Gunners will [Read More]

Hiya Goons, The game just wrapped up and the Gunners got their first win in over a week, holding on to the 1-0 lead that Mesut Ozil‘s wonder strike earned them. Overall, the performance was good again, but this time the team actually got the result they wanted. Unlike against [Read More]

Hiya Goons, The team has been bad away from home this year. Really bad. I know I don’t need to tell you, but it’s true. Just like on Sunday at St. Mary’s, on Wednesday at the London Stadium Arsenal were unable to take a win from a bottom-half opponent. This [Read More]

Hiya Goons, It’s another weekend of games gone, and another few points that the Arsenal have dropped.

This result was, despite a different [Read More]

December 4, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

Hiya Goons, The team lost again on Saturday, so join me in a day of remembrance of what could have been. Leading into the clash with Manchester United on Saturday, Arsenal had a right to be confident. After a dismal August, the season had shaped up nicely, other than a [Read More]

Monday Mourning Nov 6; Man City Defeat

November 6, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

Hiya Goons, Yesterday the team lost away to Manchester Sh***y 3-1. Two of the home goals were contentious, the penalty as well as (another) offside strike, but overall few if any Arsenal fans will argue that Pep’s boys didn’t deserve the points. That’s not to say the team didn’t show [Read More]

October 22, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

With no wins away from the Emirates coming into Sunday’s game, Arsene Wenger’s seat on the bench was warm well before kick-off. Of course, his counter-part Ronald Koeman felt the Devil biting at his backside from the other dugout as well. His Everton team only scored five league goals going [Read More]

October 14, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

The Gunners slumped to yet another defeat away from the Emirates on Friday at Watford. The first half was relatively uneventful, with both teams deeming defense more important for the first 45. Per Mertsacker broke the deadlock with a headed goal (from a set piece nonetheless!) to take his team [Read More]

Going into the clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, few if any pundits gave Arsenal a chance to take even one point from the game.
