Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

Suarez, Nkunku and……

Well that series of results was a turn up for the books last night, eh? I mean quite how we find ourselves clinging on to fourth after a laboured 2-1 victory over Cardiff City on Tuesday is beyond me if I'm honest. But thanks must go to Sarri and his Chelski side who got absolutely [...]

Stuttering Arsenal do the job against compact Cardiff

Blimey it was cold watching the football last night. Real 'brass monkeys' stuff and after the first half of football we watched I did wonder whether all I'd have to show from an evening of sleet and numb toes was a solitary point against a dogged Cardiff team. And it was a dogged Cardiff team. [...]

Football a sideshow on a sombre evening against Cardiff

This game will have a sadly strange feel about it today I think, what with it being the first game since Cardiff City have played, having tragically lost Emiliano Sala to that plane crash over a week ago. It's times like that in which you realise how football is just a side distraction in your [...]

Why I suspect not everyone is sold on Perisic to Arsenal deal

We're reaching the home stretch of the transfer window (thankfully) and with only four days left this week to get deals done there will invariably be a bit of trolley dashing from a few clubs at the last minute. I really don't get it if I'm honest. If you know you need a player why [...]

Confidence from Chelski will be key, but what formation for Emery?

Match day? On a Friday you say? At any other time I'd kinda like it. I work in a London, takes me about 15 minutes on the train to get to Highbury & Islington, so I can get a few jars in with the lads. Great fun. Except The Management booked us in for tickets [...]

Unai talks Hector, transfers and Monchi

Howdy all. One day closer to the weekend and for a change, a day even more closer towards The Arsenal playing, which is nice methinks. The manager did his press conference yesterday and spoke about the injury to Bellerin, he spoke about United and also on transfers. There's not much point in me going over [...]

Bellerin’s injury force club to think long term

So we've lost Hector for the whole season, confirmed by the club yesterday evening, which now means that some kind of solution at right back needs to be found by a unai Emery. It's a bitter blow for the team because it was obvious the difference in class that Hector brought to the team when [...]

We all know where the problem lies in the Arsenal back room

So we've got about a week and a bit to go before the infernal January transfer window shuts and despite a few concerns and questions over whether we'd be active this month, it looks as though we're playing the usual Arsenal hardball and leaving everything to the last minute, even when it comes to loan [...]
