Newcastle: “looking good at Subbuteo is not enough”

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

September 2nd1893, The Woolwich Arsenal play their first competitive match against Newcastle Utd.

Then there was Supermac.

However, those are not the greatest ties between ourselves and today's opposition. Newcastle were my favourite opponents on my Subbuteo baize. Always liked the red and white of Arsenal against the Magpie black and white.

Academy of Football. Moyes?

The Hammers. Blowing bubbles. The Academy. Bobby, Geoff and Martin. Trevor's header at Wembley.

All a long time ago. Nothing remains of that West Ham. Now they are just another industrious, unimaginative team. Allardyce and Moyes. Pragmatism. Andy Carroll.

This doesn't mean they cannot beat us, as they showed at the weekend such tactics can work.

Have Arsenal blown their big chance?

In the recent seasons, teams like Chelsea, Totnum, Pool, and of course Leicester, have profited enormously by not being in the Champions League and being able to field injury free, fresh XI's on the weekends following Continental outings for League competitors.

This season was our chance to capitalise on fielding the reserves midweek, leaving the First XI fighting fit to spearhead a determined League campaign.

A Lunchtime Appointment.

I used to like Southampton, mainly because of their kit but also because of Alan Ball, Le Tiss and Mick Channon. The kit has stayed almost the same, the club hasn't; in recent years they have become a feeder club think Bale, Walcott, Ox and Shaw ++.

Today will be a tight game, Southampton's defence is very strong, having conceded just one goal in 5 games.

Theo off the Naughty Step?

Welcome to Bate Borisov. We beat you at your noisy home ground and tonight you will admire our magnificent, state of the art stadium which is likely to be half-full. I expect you to lose again.

We have already topped the group, can't do any better than that, so I expect to see a weakened team with another host of youngsters.

Arsenal Top Seasons – 1932-33 our 9th Best

1932-33 turned out to be the final full season that our inspirational and creative manger Herbert Chapman would manage Arsenal; he passed away from pneumonia in January 1934. He had been instrumental in many innovations at Arsenal including getting the local underground station, Gillespie Road renamed to Arsenal, and he also introduced the now famous white sleeves in a match against Liverpool in March 1933.

The Glamour Game

Throughout my Goonerdom there have been two fixtures which thrill Spurs and United. There was a time when the arrival of Liverpool or City created a frisson but they are just not the same. United has always been the glamour tie of the season.


George Best, Duncan Edwards, Bryan Robson, Cantona, Charlton, Ronaldo the list is very long.

Mesut’s Master Class

A stroll in Drayton Park, Mind the Gap, there are so many possible headlines but homage to Özil seemed the most appropriate. The maestro conducted the orchestra from start to finish; his silky skills being just that bit more in focus when so easily being able to compare his recent absence against Burnley.

Huddersfield Town F.C. was where Herbert Chapman won Div 1 twice before arriving at Arsenal. We owe them but the debt should be paid by allowing them a few minutes of parity before scoring a a hatful.

One of GN5 mates

A hatful is possible but unlikely because, as H'field showed against City, they are a very good, well-organised team.

Arsenal passed their first test against serious opposition in recent weeks with flying colours. A game of two halves with Burnley having the better of the first; Sean Dyche has got his team playing well with committed, crisp interplay play that took all of Arsenal's concentration to go into the break still on equal terms.

Up North Again.

Our away form is a worry and a trip to Burnley, which a couple of seasons ago would have been one filled with optimism, is now a concern.

Chapeau off to Burnley who have done remarkably; a team with little money, small crowds and limited resources, are not only keeping a place in the PL but currently in the in 7th, level on points with the Mighty Arsenal.

Elneny in a Back 3 again?

A win in Kōln sees us top the group which will bring us an easier route through the tournament. Given they are bottom of the Bundesliga without a win it should be a formality but we know otherwise.

Mr Wenger says he will pick a team full of PL experience indicating he may "rest" some of the youth players, I think this is a bit of kidology but we do have players returning to the squad from injury who need gametime.

This was Arsenal's 100th season in competitive football and also Arsene Wenger's first full season as our manager. In the transfer window, Arsenal purchased several players, including midfielders Marc Overmars and Emmanuel Petit and goalkeeper Alex Manninger.

Below are the comparisons of the 1997-98 season results for both Arsenal and Manchester United.

5 things we learned from Saturday

  1. I will start with this because IMO it is the most important. We had a proper 12th man. The fans were wonderfully raucous from before kick off until well after games end. It makes a massive difference to the players. Just imagine you were on the pitch (a dream, I know), which would inspire you, The Library or Saturday's passion?

Spud Bashing – Player Ratings

Team up for it, crowd up for it, great day in the Red and White side of North London. Grown men singing Sweet Caroline at the tops of their voices as they left the ground – Good times never felt this good and Neil Diamond was not wrong.

Cech: his maturity counts for a lot, solid as ever and a great save at the end to keep an impressive clean sheet.
