Norwich: don’t leave our fullbacks exposed and stay disciplined, Arsenal

By |November 29th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It’s match day today and another away game against a Norwich side who will be looking to pick up some points in front of their home fans and also move further away from the teams at the bottom. For us, it’s an opportunity to climb a couple of places up to second if we can […]

A title race for all and an Alexis made from stronger stuff

By |November 27th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Good old Arsène and his early press conferences. It gives me something to talk about on a Friday, you see, so I’m always happy when it happens. Of course, Saturday may still be a quiet day, but that’s none of my concern first thing on a Friday morning, I can tell thee!

Concerns. Do we have […]

Morale boosting win with Mesut, Santi and Alexis shining

By |November 25th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|2 Comments

I know it’s pretty easy to talk about it in hindsight, but that was pretty much as routine as you’re going to get in the Champions League, perhaps somewhat to most Arsenal fans frustration given the relative ease in which we dispatched Zagreb compared to the Olympiakos game.

In truth, our opponents were less than average, […]

Title talk is fanciful as injuries take toll against the Baggies

Where to even begin with the shower of the proverbial that we witnessed from Arsenal yesterday, eh? I mean seriously, I have no idea where to even start. Nothing went right. We played terribly. Then, even with most of the 90 minutes of tripe we had to sit through, we still get handed a lifeline […]

Expect physicality, but to beat West Brom we need to show technical superiority

Please forgive me if I end up jinxing the outcome of today’s game, but this match today feels very much like the Swansea game of a few weeks ago, in which we had some very difficult moments but ended up winning comfortably away in South Wales.

I’m not saying that I think we’ll win today (there, […]

Last chance saloon for Campbell and I rule myself out for Arsène

Thank R.Kelly it’s Friday. I’m certainly ready for the weekend I can tell you. A bit of booze, lie-ins and more importantly, The Arsenal.

I suspect Arsène and his charges will be making their way up to some West Midlands based hotel today at some stage, because he got his presser out of the way early […]

Filling the blanks on the Arsenal flanks

By |November 17th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, friendly, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Internationals, Rant|0 Comments

With the friendly game to take place at Wembley tonight most probably being the centre of attention for most of the world and its media, it is perhaps inevitable that from an Arsenal perspective there is some involvement. I suspect we’ll see Giroud and Koscienly take their place in the team at some point, whilst […]

Welbeck will need time

Nothing is fun about this morning for me. Yes it’s Friday, for which I am thankful, but that I drag myself in to work after a boozy night in which I needed to be at a work function, supporting an organisations awards in which my company get involved in, is particularly vexing for me this […]

Frustration and relief – the North London Derby

By |November 9th, 2015|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Review, midfield, premier league|1 Comment

What on earth do you make of that game yesterday? I don’t even know where to start if I’m honest. I don’t k is whether to express relief that the team managed to salvage a draw, or frustration that we looked so leggy and at times disinterested, or at least a little clueless and out […]

Victory in the Derby will show the strength of the squad

Here we are folks. Derby day. The most worrying day of the year as far as I’m concerned. Derby day has the potential to delight or disappoint in equal measure. A win against that lot down the wrong end of the Seven Sisters Road puts us in a superb position going in to the international […]
