Arsenal confuse and delight in equal measure – Vorskla

Well now, that was fun and once again, as The Management often says, The Arsenal did The Goals. Now I don't know about you, but I like that, regardless of the opposition. When I was a wee nipper or a grumpy teenager I used to get frustrated when Arsenal didn't do enough of The Goals, [...]

Big night for rotated players to shine for Arsenal

Hooray for match day I say! After the last few days of it being about Ivan and his departure, after back-to-back away games in between an international break, we finally get back to The Arsenal at home and tonight is the first time I'm back to The Emirates since the opening day defeat to City. [...]

What Will Emery Change to Ensure Arsenal Make the Top 4?

By | 2018-09-09T11:20:30+00:00 September 9th, 2018|Arsenal Manager, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Unai Emery knows he doesn’t have a squad capable of beating the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, United and Liverpool to the crown this season, but he’s not in it for the short term. A successful campaign for the gunners this season will be a top 4 finish, just so they have a foundation to [...]

Nelson and Lacazette out the door?

With all of the hoo-ha of the start of the Premier League I think most of us had forgotten the fact English clubs can't become embroiled in an end of August transfer scrap on Friday. It's been refreshing to know that there won't be any destabilising of players as the season starts. Well, that is [...]

Laca will get his chance as Emery tinkers

It's funny how in football harmony can do quickly turn into discord. Just look at the situation at Old Trafford right now. A pretty stinging defeat to the horrible lot from the other part of north London and what do you know? Jose is at odds with everyone again. Having only recently signed a new [...]

Tactical opens from Emery is refreshing; Ozil situation is tiresome

Morning gooner. It's one of those rarest of things in the UK today - bank holiday - which means a bit of s lie in and a morning spent in me PJs watching the Unai Emery press conference again, as well as some more fall out from the victory against West Ham. I don't really [...]

Job done for Arsenal but a few concerns

Ultimately what we wanted yesterday was an Arsenal win and so when Danny Welbeck calmly swivelled and rifled home the third goal in injury time, the overriding emotion was obviously relief from most of the stadium and also for me. I think if I was to choose a word to reflect the game yesterday though, [...]

West Ham at home: we need players with passing range

Happy Saturday one and all, hope you're having a good one, especially since the season can now officially start today after a couple of engine stalls. Of course the engine could still fall apart on us today and anybody expecting West Ham to be a nice easy ride should probably have a think about that [...]

Love that Emery shows his tactical workings

Emery did his presser yesterday which of course is delicious for somebody who needs something to write about on a Friday morning commute, so I got one am hoping that he replicates this format for the rest of his Arsenal tenure, cos it dun'half 'elp with my #content. I like that he's open to talking [...]

A weird result at Stamford Bridge – positives and frustrations

I feel weird writing about Arsenal this morning. Weird because I don't know exactly how I feel. Often I will feel happiness, elation, anger, sadness, frustration, but today I feel a little bit of everything. And that's weird. Ultimately I guess the emotion that overrides all is sadness because we once again lost at Stamford [...]
