Koscielny is so bored with internationals he’s quit

Happy Monday folks. Hope you're all fine and dandy given the international break boredom we are all collectively enduring right now. I mean it really is a snooze fest, eh? I'm not sure how anyone can claim to have any interest in it at this time of the year. Especially if you're an Arsenal fan. [...]

Is Thierry’s fast track good for Arsenal?

So it seems there is so little to talk about when it comes to The Arsenal this morning, that all I really have to peruse over for my morning bowl of Frosties is a story emerging that Thierry Henry is about to take the reigns at Monaco, after Jardim was sacked, with Monaco currently 18th [...]

Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

Emery’s juggling keeps everyone happy

With no proper football on this week it feels a bit weird having little of interest to talk about, especially given the winning run and the volume of Arsenal matches we've been gifted. Even the European competition has been fun to see us win, albeit with a little bit too much huff and puff at [...]

I think I owe Mkhitaryan an apology

I write this blog every morning on my way to work. It's a bit of a schlep and so I get about 45 minutes to compile some thoughts and as a result I'm not exactly one for research to the nth degree. I write this blog as a compilation of my own personal ramblings on [...]

How do we get Özil in to a 4-4-2?

After the first ten minutes on Sunday when we all realised that Emery was adopting a 4-4-2 against Fulham, I think it took me an additional ten minutes to believe it, such is the way with football fashion and the penchant for following trends. Wenger himself moved from 4-4-2 way back when so he could [...]

Emeryball starting to take shape after Fulham spanking?

Well, what a happy Monday we have here thanks to The Arsenal, eh? Five goals away from home, nine wins on the bounce, six in the league, Auba and Laca both getting two, plus one of the contenders for goal of the season thanks in large part due to some excellent build up but also [...]

Press high, force Fulham into mistake, and minimise your own, Arsenal

A 12pm kick off is a funny old thing. It's the earliest type of kick off you get in the Premier League and whilst I'm no fan of Sunday games anyway, I can tolerate these more because it still feels like you have something of a day after the team have played, although only if [...]

Arsenal Almiron the case for some new blood

Morning all and welcome to another weekend. And it's one of many this season in which our Saturday's are sadly not taken up by The Arsenal. It's not fun really and doesn't feel right but I guess it is what it is. For the positive yin of having plenty to talk about yesterday following victory [...]

New formation, three points, first goals: job done against Qarabag

By | 2018-10-05T23:37:51+00:00 October 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

I've gotta say - the good thing about Thursday night games is that it makes the Friday morning commute and subsequent Arsenal blog much more palatable. Especially when the lads have gone away and notched another win and another three points to take us closer to Europa League qualification. And it's eight wins on the [...]
