Highbury House http://highbury-house.com Where it's OK to disagree! Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:47:19 +0000 en-GB hourly 1 104261019 Is your glass filling up…. Slowly? Arsenal rampant once again but this time, against a good side…. http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/29/is-your-glass-filling-up-slowly-arsenal-rampant-once-again-but-this-time-against-a-good-side/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/29/is-your-glass-filling-up-slowly-arsenal-rampant-once-again-but-this-time-against-a-good-side/#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2016 09:25:52 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25086 Morning all. Two top quality goals were enough to defeat Basel last night. Being picky, we should have scored a few more and probably would have had their keeper not had such a fine game. But, the boys fluffed a few too. Regardless, the display overall was very very good again, especially the first half […]

Bye Bye Jack Wilshere? Arsene chasing in form French striker? http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/28/bye-bye-jack-wilshere-arsene-chasing-in-form-french-striker/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/28/bye-bye-jack-wilshere-arsene-chasing-in-form-french-striker/#comments Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:59:03 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25079 Morning all. Well well, Bild are reporting that Mesut Ozil has agreed terms on a new bumper signing at Arsenal. The deal includes a pay rise and a switch of shirt numbers. With Jack Wilshere out on loan at Bournemouth, a club which suggests they could make the deal permanent, the German is set to nick his number […]

We need a right-back, sign him up Arsene.. Brotherly love, but for 90 mins, it’s winner takes all… http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/27/we-need-a-right-back-sign-him-up-arsene-brotherly-love-but-for-90-mins-its-winner-takes-all/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/27/we-need-a-right-back-sign-him-up-arsene-brotherly-love-but-for-90-mins-its-winner-takes-all/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:16:02 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25074 Morning all. Firstly, happy birthday to Granit Xhaka who turns 24 years old today.. His best friend is his brother Taulant who plays for Basel and tomorrow it’s highly likely the two will be up against each other in Arsenal’s second Champions League fixture of the season. Basel are not a team to be underestimated […]

Too soon to get excited? Oxlade-Chamberlain needs to get on board.. http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/26/too-soon-to-get-excited-oxlade-chamberlain-needs-to-get-on-board/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/26/too-soon-to-get-excited-oxlade-chamberlain-needs-to-get-on-board/#comments Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:19:10 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25065 Morning all. I’m sure most Arsenal fans are still feeling pretty good after Saturdays battering of Chelsea. As Arsene Wenger said, the first half was as near perfect as it gets. The second half was equally as good in it’s own right despite not scoring further goals. Little bits from the game though made me […]

Where did that come from? 1, 2, 3, Caramba! http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/25/where-did-that-come-from-1-2-3-caramba/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/25/where-did-that-come-from-1-2-3-caramba/#comments Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:11:26 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25062 Morning guys and gals. Ok, I don’t like swearing much but to be honest, that was the question running through my mind as the halftime whistle blew… Superb attacking play, great defending and great football from Arsenal. Great support from The Emirates faithful who started slow but after Alexis scored, came alive…. Alexis, Theo and […]

Terry out, Ramsey out, Ollie to return. Xhaka and who? http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/24/terry-out-ramsey-out-ollie-to-return-xhaka-and-who/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/24/terry-out-ramsey-out-ollie-to-return-xhaka-and-who/#comments Sat, 24 Sep 2016 09:14:11 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25054 Morning all. Back when I was young, very young I hasten to add, I quite liked Chelsea. Well, Peter Bonetti and Peter Osgood actually and they nearly had me supporting the ‘Blues’ at an early age, something which I’ve never confessed. But thankfully, it wasn’t to be as Arsenal stole my heart. Back then though Chelsea were […]

Is there a snitch in the Arsenal camp? Arsene Wenger smiles in response to Mourinho jibes… http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/23/is-there-a-snitch-in-the-arsenal-camp-arsene-wenger-smiles-in-response-to-mourinho-jibes/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/23/is-there-a-snitch-in-the-arsenal-camp-arsene-wenger-smiles-in-response-to-mourinho-jibes/#comments Fri, 23 Sep 2016 09:10:58 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25047 Morning all. That ghastly under tall Portuguese pillock is back in the headlines and if what’s been written is true, he should be embarrassed and ashamed of himself. In a book written and serialised by Rob Beasley in the Daily Mail, Mourinho, when talking about Arsene Wenger’s comments on selling Juan Mata to Man Utd, […]

Twenty years for Arsene Wenger but no Premier League title for twelve of them! http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/22/twenty-years-for-arsene-wenger-but-no-premier-league-title-for-twelve-of-them/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/22/twenty-years-for-arsene-wenger-but-no-premier-league-title-for-twelve-of-them/#comments Thu, 22 Sep 2016 09:13:46 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25026 Morning all. Twenty years ago, Arsene Who? became Arsenal’s new manager. Very few knew much about the man from France, but David Dein did and having failed in his attempt to get him to Arsenal the previous summer, in 1996 he got his man. It wasn’t long before we Arsenal fans realised why David Dein […]

What’s in the box? New kids on the block shine, as does our number 9! http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/21/whats-in-the-box-new-kids-on-the-block-shine-as-does-our-number-9/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/21/whats-in-the-box-new-kids-on-the-block-shine-as-does-our-number-9/#comments Wed, 21 Sep 2016 09:23:21 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25038 Morning all. No upset for Arsenal last night despite a number of young ones in the side. Having only seen the highlights, I can’t really comment on the way we played but a 4-0 away victory in the Cup isn’t to be sniffed at. The goals were all very good too. Xhaka blasted in another […]

Sanogo or Akpom? Nine youngsters in with a chance tonight… http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/20/sanogo-or-akpom-nine-youngsters-in-with-a-chance-tonight/ http://highbury-house.com/2016/09/20/sanogo-or-akpom-nine-youngsters-in-with-a-chance-tonight/#comments Tue, 20 Sep 2016 09:08:29 +0000 http://highbury-house.com/?p=25034 Morning all. No idea what kind of team Arsene Wenger will select tonight but I suspect it’ll be a bit mix and match, especially as a few younger players were left out of last nights under 23’s 5-0 battering by Everton.  Matt Macey, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Krystian Bielik, Chris Willock, Gedion Zelalem, Ben Sheaf, Stephy Mavididi, […]
