Morning Gooners, A Saturday afternoon blog from yours truly as Dev is away for the weekend.

However the bad thing is Arsenal don’t play until Monday, … [Read more…]


Morning Gooners   It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to blog due a holiday, work and illness. However, during that time the dark clouds have once again gathered over Arsenal FC. The worst thing about writing that sentence is the need to insert the word ‘again’ in to it. The fact is … [Read more…]

A Case For Depth.

Morning Gooners, Another interlull week means even less Arsenal related news. Last Friday the Ox scored his first goal for the senior team against the might of San Marino. Away from that Koscielny spoke his mind when asked who the hardest striker he has faced; “He (Luis Suarez) is tiresome to defend against. He cheats. … [Read more…]

Another Interlull begins…

Morning Gooners, It’s another Wednesday but this time I hope the gremlins that took down the WOA site including my Wednesday post last week aren’t up to any mischief this time round.

Chelsea reaction & Olympiacos preview.

Morning Gooners, It’s 4 days on yet I still can’t wash off the frustration of saturday’s first defeat of the season. The fact I felt rare bit of over confidence going into the game personifies the frustration, a case of miss placed optimism. I want to write how it was just an off day and … [Read more…]

Interlull over… Business time.

Morning Gooners, It’s an interlull week already in the season so the news is pretty sparse this week to say the least. I’m typing while watching the Ox not really get into get into an average England performance at home to Ukraine while also keeping an eye on Giroud’s France take on Belarus. Not much … [Read more…]

Cazorla & The D-Unit.

Morning Gooners, And it’s still a good morning as many of us are still smiling from our first win of the season at Anfield. Unfortunately I was unable not only to go to Anfield but actually watch the game at all due to a family birthday event. It’s the first time I haven’t watched a … [Read more…]

Boring Boring… Not just yet.

Morning Gooners, So here we are again, another 0-0 draw, player(s) edging closer to the exit door and no strong rumours of any players making their way to the club. Kicking off at Stoke on Sunday, I was actually satisfied with a point. Note I said satisfied with a point versus happy not scoring any … [Read more…]
