After two weeks of Internationals, Internationals & Internationals (and the signing of Ozil)… we find ourselves at match day… it’s Sunderland vs Arsenal at the stadium of light… Bring it on… For the last two weeks, without a shadow of a doubt, I’ve been looking forward to this game, but as today has grown closer … [Read more…]
Whilst the club down the roads (ahem, Sp*rs)… broke their record transfer fee 3 times, in typical Arsenal style, we’ve smashed ours by three times! When you think about the fees that are being paid now… £86m for Bale, £30m+ for Willian, £30m for Lamela, £30m for Fellaini……… Mr Ozil looks like good value at … [Read more…]
There isn’t much time until the end of the transfer window, and if the rumours of us signing Ozil are true, by this video alone, it will be immense. 24 hours left… fingers crossed.
‘Always ahead of the game’ These words are printed on the key ring from my members’ pack from a couple of years ago. Motto’s such as ‘Forward’ and ‘Victory Through Harmony’ also spring to mind when thinking about how the club tries to define itself. Let’s analyse. ‘Victory through harmony’: I have never seen so … [Read more…]
With one week to go until the Premiership kicks off, it’s time to take a look at the squad, the summer and the season ahead… As every Gooner (well, every footballing fan) knows, this Summer was meant to be a big statement. We were expecting signings, world class signings and in every department. We were … [Read more…]
Winning 2-0 in Munich against a very good Bayern Munich side is no mean feat. In fact, I have to say, I didn’t expect us to beat Bayern. I didn’t expect us to get anywhere near them. When I heard that we’d dropped Szcznesy completely, relegated Vermaelen to the bench and that there was no … [Read more…]
Evening all… This is probably the worst time to choose to write my first blog on the new look WOA site… but nevertheless, it is time… I’ll start by reflecting on today’s game against Sp*rs… the game was typical of the team at the moment, and three points sum up the game: Slow start Conceding … [Read more…]
Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all readers a happy new year. The blog has had a quiet few days after a busy start to the year for all our writers. My first post of 2013 may not be pretty reading for many. Eleven days into the new year we find ourselves … [Read more…]
Happy New Year to all the Gooners out there… It’s been a mixed year for all of us, the highs and lows of being an Arsenal fan… but have we been entertained…? Hell yeah…! Let the footballing Gods be good to us, let Arsene do his magic and let’s get behind the team. We face … [Read more…]
After a week off, we find ourselves with a home game against a team who have been struggling of late – for us, we’ve seen 3 wins in 3 to get some sort of credible flight up the table, but just as easily as we’ve got there, we can fall out of it very quickly. … [Read more…]
Wishing you all the best over the festive period… With no games until the 29th of December… when we take on Newcastle at the Emirates, I’ll be off the blog for a few days to spend it with the family. Merry Christmas to you all and a very happy new year!
