Recalling Nelson? Repositioning Ramsey? Or reigniting Iwobi/Mkhitaryan?

So Welbz has had his second operation in his ankle and as the club reported on the official site it has gone as well as can be hoped. Not being any kind of medical professional I have no idea what his timescale for recovery is and you can understand the club being reluctant to put [...]

Lethargic Arsenal have Leno to thank against Wolves

After a week in which many teams have European football there's often a tendency for the games to be a little flat. We used to see it back in the day of the Champions League attendance we had. Perhaps that could be labelled at a few teams at the top of the division this weekend, [...]

Galvanising Arsenal in wake of Welbeck injury

Happy Saturday unto thee. Although with the Welbeck situation, as well as the fact that the club are talking about Danny getting well soon, etc, I think we can put a few together to think that it's probably the worst. And that's a horrible situation. It's horrible for the player because with five goals this [...]

Uninspiring attacking Arsenal meet stubborn Sporting defence

It was a weird old game yesterday. With the goals we've been getting all season and the plaudits from an attacking point of view but not a defensive one, it felt as though we should have been dispatching Sporting Lisbon with a little more ease on our own soil. After all we'd gone to their [...]

Keep up momentum by not underestimating Sporting

It's another Europa League game at the Emirates tonight and a chance to see if we can progress through the group stages and top the group with a win tonight against Sporting Lisbon. It's the part of the group that I'm sure many of us thought would be the biggest banana skin of them all [...]

We can be hurt by Liverpool, but we can also hurt

I've been struggling in my mind to make a case for us all week for this game, in an effort to try and manage my own expectations and forgive me - dear friends - if this blog comes across as a little too apprehensive, but I am not looking forward to this game one little [...]

Don’t underestimate the warm up act – Blackpool at home

Back on the horse today lads, there's an opportunity to extend the undefeated run to 13 and despite the fact we're all bricking it for Saturday evening, we should still approach tonight's game with the right attitude, approach and hopefully, safe passage in to the quarter finals of the League Cup. Blackpool are tonight's opponents [...]

Frustration at Arsenal’s approach at Palace

Today is a blog of, ultimate lunch, frustration I'm afraid. It's frustration because that wonderful winning run that we've been on came to an end away to Crystal Palace, but also it's frustration about the way in which it happened. There were a a few factors involved in the way I feel this morning: The [...]

Never easy with Arsenal, don’t expect that away to Palace

Howdy folks and welcome to another matchday. A matchday in which the possibility of winning 12 on the bounce is very real and yet at the same time I find myself exceedingly nervous that we could completely bugger up today's game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. I don't know what it is; perhaps it's [...]

Özil stars, but plenty step up against Leicester

I could really get used to "second half Arsenal" you know. Like, really get used to them. I'm not too fussed about "first half Arsenal, if I'm honest; in fact I'd happily never see "first half Arsenal" ever again, thank you kindly. That's what we have to get used to though. I'm trying to reconcile [...]
