Holding holds his space as Emery remains guarded on form and Rambo

Proper football is finally coming back on the agenda and with it we're getting some lovely little sound bites from our man Unai. Ahh I can't tell you how much I've missed being able to talk about upcoming Arsenal. I don't know why but this particular international break has felt like a bit more of [...]

Keep Özil and Koscielny for the ones that really love them

Sooooo little to talk about in the Arsenal world right now. When headline news is the existing Arsenal ladies manager signing a new contract extension, plus Arsène Wenger saying how it wasn't good news for Germany to lose Mesut Özil (well, duh...), you know it's been a slow news week. The Özil situation isn't one [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

A quick start needed from the rotated Arsenal players against Qarabag

I don't really care that the Timy Totts and Scousers are in a bigger competition than us; seeing them lose is pleasurable in any competition and so to witness that 'orrible lot concede four at home to a Barca team that hasn't been in the greatest of form, is mighty pleasurable. We may not have [...]

An Iwobi for Ramsey swap in the team? It’s not that simple

By | 2018-10-01T07:58:41+00:00 October 1st, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Unai Emery|2 Comments

If ever one needs an example of how quickly fortunes can change in football, one need look no further than Alex Iwobi who with a couple of impressive substitute appearances in the league and a decent game against Brentford last midweek, has suddenly found himself thrust into the fan spotlight as clamour for his inclusion [...]

A squad balance to be found against Brentford

Tuesday is upon us friends and what I always like a about Tuesday after a Sunday game, is that it's usually when all of the stats boffins come out with their analysis on matches, firing xG charts into the great beyond of the internet and generally telling us why the game should, or shouldn't, have [...]

Balance at Arsenal – players adapt or formation adapts?

Happy Saturday folks. It's one of many this season in which Arsenal aren't playing but yesterday Unai spoke to the official site about the game tomorrow and there's a word he said a few times that keeps ringing in my head as I compose some of my usual garbled thoughts this morning: Balance. Unai spoke [...]

Nacho’s deal is pragmatic, Özil’s rest is welcome, but Gazidis isn’t

Morning you wonderful sexy bitches, you. Well, it is for me as I write this now, having flown out to New York for the weekend with my company for a bit of a jolly. So the next couple of days will probably be somewhat disjointed blogs, although I will be waking up at 9am to [...]
