Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Xhaka with space could be the difference against Watford

I don't really know what to make of tonight's game. There's part of me that looks at the form we were in before the international break and think that yes, we're on a good run and we should beat Watford, but even though that is the case there are a couple of nagging doubts I [...]

Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]

Nothing wrong with a routine Arsenal display

I thought yesterday was the archetypal 'routine' win for Arsenal yesterday which, given how tired I was feeling after a heavy night of booze and karaoke followed by an early get up for The Arsenal, is no bad thing. One set piece free kick against the woodwork in the first half aside, we controlled possession [...]

My eyes hurt. Please just win, Arsenal.

Ahh man I feel roughered this morning. That's rough and knackered combined, kids. I had many a drink last night and at 2am remembered that the broadcasting companies have ruined football with their ridiculous kick offs. And now I'm not appreciating the karaoke I did in my kitchen with my mates. Not even in the [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

Team structure over expendable star men like Alexis

I wanted to broach a topic today that I sort of touched upon yesterday, relating to both Özil and Alexis and of course, there inevitable departures in either January or more likely May next year.  I think the first of the contract rebels of the modern era was Flamini. I'm sure others will put me [...]

Laca looks ‘Wrighty’, Alexis looks too individual against Baggies

A win to set the week off is always a good thing. A win with a clean sheet is also very delightful. A win I. Which your star striker bags a brace is also something to savour. So on a relatively balmy night in North London yesterday evening, I'm pleased that it's just what was [...]

Possession with a purpose: what’s needed for Arsenal tonight 

By | 2017-09-25T07:37:10+00:00 September 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

After a weekend in which every other Premier League team got their chance to showcase what they've got in their side, its us and West Brom tonight who face off against each other, in a fixture in which few will surely want in terms of timings.  Let's face it - Monday night football is fun [...]

Job done for Arsenal, little more

I wouldn't have described yesterday's victory against Doncaster Rovers as 'thrilling'. Nor would I put it down as 'comprehensive'. It was certainly a win and safe passage to the fourth round against Norwich at The Emirates, but it was hardly a humdinger of a cup tie, was it? As expected Arsène rotated his whole team [...]
