I’m not the usual match previewer here on Gunners Town – but I thought I’d give it a bash. How hard can it be? First, a little background on tonight’s opponents… Background “Östersund” means ‘wheelbarrow’ in Swedish, and it’s quite appropriate, since the entire population could fit in a wheelbarrow. A very big wheelbarrow. Not […]

Thanks to our friends over at EA Sports for this mid-season update. Some interesting stats in here – noticeably the absence of any Arsenal player in the Goalscorers Top 6. It’s hard to win anything without scoring, and Arsenal has had one of its lowest scoring seasons in ages. We have hit the woodwork a […]

Premier League (and Arsenal) fans are in for a shock this season. I honestly believe that 2017/18 is going to upset a lot of people. Any sense of entitlement will be severely challenged. “We’re a big club so we deserve to win the league” is a thing of the past. The EPL is traditionally dominated […]
POSITIVE Aaron Ramsey The Welsh Jesus has returned. Against Stoke, Ramsey showed a glimpse of the player who shone in the 13/14 season. His first touch was sharp, it allowed him to quickly pick out an offensive pass; no more 360′ wide-turns, slowing down our attack. Watching him off the ball was a revelation: his […]
Introduction I don’t know how to break this to you gently – so I’m just going to come out and say it… If you have been clamouring for Arséne Wenger’s departure based on any reason other than you’re throwing an emotional hissy-fit of entitlement and frustration – then you are, at best, seriously misguided, and at worst, […]
May the spirit of Rocky forever burn in Gooner hearts.
