December 29, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

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 will feel [Read More]

Manchester City Defeat Arsenal

Yesterday the team lost away to Manchester City 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 some fight, [Read More]

October 22, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

Is this the first happy time for Arsenal fans? 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 counterpart Ronald Koeman felt the Devil biting at his backside from the other dugout as well. [Read More]

September 10, 2017 Martin Hawkins 0

Yesterday at the Emirates was the first time this year Gooners saw their team play a good game for a full 90 minutes.

Just last May it felt as though the Potter’s favorite fixture of the year finally belonged to the visitors.
