Time for Ox to make his case.

Giroud scores against Everton for fun, look for a brace from him today.


Good tactical shift by Arsene too. Mert loss meant we were abit short, Brings in Giroud.


Giroud, loves the north

Lone Star Gunner

Unrelated but I have to give props to the referee in the West Ham – Chelsea match. Matic committed two obvious, cynical, yellow card worthy pull backs and was deservedly sent off. The patented Chelsea referee swarm then occurred and the ref promptly handed out two yellows to the players buzzing around him. That’s exactly the way to handle that sort of nonsense and I hope other refs are paying attention.


Come on you Hammers.


Those colours did not run!


Arsene said it best, when tou give success to stupid people, sometimes it makes them more stupid. It’s like the general media have been able to peel their noses from his arse to see that Mourinho is a despicable excuse for a man.

Gunner From Another Mother

I put on the West Ham game first thing when I woke up (I live in the US) and the very moment the game came into picture, Carrol nods home the winner and I see those blue cunts are playing with 10 men. What a way to start the day! And what’s this?! Jose sent off at half time for trying to enter the referee’s room?! AND his assistant was sent to the stands?! Just a moment then, *ahem* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha


After Gabriel’s card was (half) turned over and Costa got his well deserved 3 match ban I suggested that the FA might be on Costa like a hawk from thereon. It was wishful thinking but maybe it’s actually happened. And not just him, they’re gunning for the whole fucking team. Who’d have thought that would happen? Beautiful!


Mert being ill, means lukaku can’t target his lack of pace. That’s good ya


Ill again???

Consice Pete

My thoughts too. Seems to get ill a lot.




Good lineup. ALEXIS AND OX could be explosive on the wings.

In other news Mou proly told the ref he was weak and naive and got done.


We haven’t had the best results with rotations so far but that’s got to change, we need a squad for a title, not an XI. I think everyone coming in knows that and that they are all ready to fight for the common cause of Arsenal. Come on you Gunners! The summit awaits!

Pass debuchy from the left hand side

Giroud deserves a start after his performances recently, and he’s got a good record against Everton. I’m sure there’s also an element of wanting pace to come off the bench. Hopefully we can get a lead on early and have the chance to rest Sanchez later in the game and bring Theo on.


Is it just me or are we having a lot of illness this year?


Three points and a good performance. COGY!

Die Hard Gooner

The more mourinho complains the more every decisions go against him. And I am loving it. Is it inhuman to be euphoric in some one elses misery? Ours looks a great line up. good rotation.

Andy Mack

You mean ‘the more every decisions IS CORRECTLY CALLED against him’.


A tad ungracious perhaps but when an unsavoury character like Mourinho gets his righteous comeuppance I think it’s OK to crack open a bottle of vintage Schadenfreude. Bergkamp knows it’s been on ice for long enough!



why is Merts always ill? someone get the guy some vitamins!


Only thing that concerns me is the massively defensive nature of our bench. That said, the starting 11 should be enough to beat Everton. Goooooners!!

The 49ners

Fellow back, relax and enjoy the victory as we go Top!!


All together now….poor jose hahaha


Yay to the first two goals but Everton scoring a goal before half time is far from ideal!!!
