Gritty Arsenal find a way against Leicester. Just.

Three on the bounce feels lovely this morning doesn't it? It certainly felt good when I knew the game was over and on the surface, this new formation looks decent, with three victories and an Arsenal team that look like they're building their confidence to play it more and more with each game. Whether it's [...]

Wing backs are key against Leicester tonight 

By |April 26th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Midweek match day. An opportunity to break up the monotony of the working week with a spot of Arsenal and if the footballing gods are with us, hopefully a victory to add the gloss to the weekend semi final win. It's a resurrected Leicester City who come to town and despite the fact we haven't [...]

3-5-2 has different paths for Hector and Giroud

There's no time to savour the result from the weekend as Arsenal already have one of the remaining league games left tomorrow evening against a reinvigorated Craig Shakespeare. So it's an Arsène Wenger pre match presser today and that means we'll get an update as to whether he'll stick or twist on the starting XI, [...]

Repair the damage for next week’s semi final 

By |April 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league|1 Comment

The second Monday night football of the season provides us with a chance to at least get back to some kind of winning ways ahead of next weekend's FA Cup semi final and I must say that if we can't turn over a Middlesbrough side who are in freefall from the Premier League at the [...]

Palace – Arsenal players’ silent revolt 

By |April 11th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, premier league, Rant, Tactics|1 Comment

As I listened to the chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" from our fans at the Palace ground in the away end, I asked the question to Ben - who has become somewhat of an Arsenal therapist in the last couple of seasons - is it me or is this like the [...]

Arsenal need to be wary of Palace’s counter

By |April 10th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Just as I expected when I wrote my blog on Saturday morning, pretty much everybody above and below us in the Premier League won over the weekend, which means only victory tonight against Palace will see us tread water. It's a difficult situation to be in that's for sure. The opponents will also make it [...]

City will want to exposure our full backs today

By |April 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victory today is the only option. A draw will only seem as though the team has further regressed from the target of Champions League football and personally, I suspect it will also mean we will have too much to do to take one of the four spots for next season. It doesn't even matter if [...]

Arsenal make me numb

After the game yesterday I felt angry for about four minutes. I was angry and upset about that performance and I was feeling a little ranty. But by five minutes after the game, I was back to myself and I got on with the rest of my day. I didn't bother looking at Sky Sports [...]

No sluggish start, Arsenal, we need three points

By |March 18th, 2017|Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

A lunchtime kick off today means there's no hanging around before we get in to the football action this weekend. I kind of like that. It feels like we've had to wait for Arsenal to play of late, so to get a game in nice and early on a Saturday is pretty good for me, [...]

Change across more than management a good thing at Arsenal?

Morning. Hope your Wednesday was better than it started and today is better than yesterday. Football certainly hasn't helped of late, so I've been engaging in other activities, like watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and pretending I was seven again. I'll ignore the fact the movie was terrible. It brought me back to my childhood. [...]
