Arsenal’s new man should play the high press

Last night I went on the Gooner Ramble and we talked Arsène and Arsenal and life after him, but on the Podcast I only briefly started talking about the type of manager I would like to see us get in. I've been asked that by quite a few people and when I give my response [...]

Watford at home: It’s about momentum, not points

It's another match day for the Arsenal and as annoying as it is to be another Sunday game, the reason for it being this Sunday is certainly one that we can stomach, because it's due to the teams participation in the Europa League and the excellent performance that was Milan. In a way I'm kind [...]

Hoping Arsene is thinking three

Morning folks, how you doing, on this cup final weekend? I have a little scratchy throat problem going on which, in prep for a final in which I intend to completely decimate my voice from songs from before I've even arrived at the ground tomorrow, isn't exactly a good sign. What isn't also a good [...]

Why are Arsenal so unprepared for games?

Morning all. I have to say this question has been ringing around in my head all weekend and as I wake up this morning to start a working week it still lingers. Why is it that, despite the fact we have so much preparation and rest time, our team can still look so lethargic in [...]

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]

My best Arsenal XI – any surprises?

Morning all, hope you are grand and dandy and you have woken up to a Thursday in which great things can happen? Alternatively it could just be a regular run-of-the-mill Thursday in which you get to the end of your day and wonder what you have actually achieved. Life, eh? Arsène will do his press [...]

Arsenal’s rampant new attacking era? Everton match review

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's match from the first minute to the last. I generally hate evening kick offs on a Saturday because they pretty much ruin any chance of going out in the evening for me given travel home, etc, but if we played like that every week then i'd happily accept any time to [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle.

Last gasp deliciousness for Arsenal at Burnley

Is there anything quite like a last-gasp winner in a football match? Is there anything as delicious as knowing your team has scored with so little time for the opposition to respond, that even though your club specialises in brain farts from time-to-time, you know there will be no way back for the opponent? If [...]

Arsenal need the all-important first goal against Burnley

Moaning y'all and welcome to Sunday match day, a day in which we once again travel away to a tough ground to try to pick up three points against an in form team, in the shape of Burnley. This'll be a tough one today. Burnley are an established Premier League side under Dyche but more [...]
