Arsène Wenger has built has various Arsenal teams with key attributes that include technical quality, quick passing and movement and a precision in their play that – when it works – is breathtaking and what football should be all about. For the first 20 minutes of yesterday’s game that is exactly what we were treated […]
Well, if it isn’t the return of ‘Prickly Arsène’ in the press conference, who we hadn’t seen since at least 2013 I’m sure?
We all knew there’d be metaphorical blood spilt when Arsène went in front of the media coyotes, because they would be sniffing for blood and he looks very much like a wounded animal […]
So, Arsène had a training ground rant, did he? Apologies if you e already read this piece of info and I’m not bringing anything new to you, but I only read it this morning (see my blog yesterday for my reasons as to why I might be behind) and having read that, I feel a little […]
The pain of the woeful Tuesday display still remains, but it’s become a little bit more of a dull ache than a stabbing feeling in my gut, such is the speed in which football is coming at us with the games we’ve got midweek and then at the weekend.
Almost inevitably, some of the players have […]
That, last night, was a disgrace.
Everything was wrong about yesterday. The mangers decision to play Ospina, the lethargy in the team performance, the slow build up, all of it was appalling and I hope the players are having a serious word with themselves today.
Before a goal was even scored, my colleagues for the evening were […]
I hope that whatever team is chosen tonight, we see more energy and urgency than our last outing in this competition, because anything other than a win against Olympiakos would be nothing short of a disaster.
It’s only now, as we reach game week 2 of the Champions League, that we realise the importance of an […]
There’s no time for basking in victory right now, the games are coming thick and fast and tomorrow night the team will look to make it three wins in a row by trying to overcome Olympiakos.
I must say I do love it when Arsenal play so often, but it doesn’t leave you much room for […]
Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday’s highlights, I don’t exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday’s performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game.
I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well as […]
I really hope the team are riding high today after Wednesday’s North London Derby victory. Today is the last of our back-to-back-to-back-to-back away games and a win today feels like it could be really splendid, don’t you know.
A win today means we go into the midweek game on another high and then if we can […]
With Arsène yet to even announce any kind of team news for tomorrow (as I type – first thing Friday morning), I feel like a pilot flying through thick, soupy fog without any of my instruments to guide the way. There’s a very good chance this blog will crash in to some sort of opinionated […]
