Some stepping up needed from Welbz and other rotated players

Match day for The Arsenal again and despite the fact it's the closest you could get to a dead rubber without actually being a dead rubber, I'm still excited to be going along to see The Arsenal play a game, having not seen one live in the flesh for nearly three weeks now. The opposition [...]

Job done in Sweden for Arsenal

Well I guess that went as well as can be expected. I mean you can't really grumble at a three-nil away victory rendering the next leg a would-be dead rubber, although with a the Arsenal I guess it's always got a caveat... But still, the job was done and on a surface which was false, [...]

Arsenal cannot underestimate the value of getting the job done tonight

Morning gooners and welcome to another match day, one in which we don't see much of for the next week, so I for one am doing my upmost to ensure that my excitement levels are heightened during my working day today. They may be a small provincial Swedish club that I hadn't have heard of [...]

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]

My best Arsenal XI – any surprises?

Morning all, hope you are grand and dandy and you have woken up to a Thursday in which great things can happen? Alternatively it could just be a regular run-of-the-mill Thursday in which you get to the end of your day and wonder what you have actually achieved. Life, eh? Arsène will do his press [...]

Things killing the enjoyment of football; Everton match preview

I thought Arsene's presser was more interesting than a lot of his pressers that he's done in the recent past. He brought quite a few interesting topics of conversation that it's really hard to disagree with so before I go into today's match preview I think I want to delve into a couple of things [...]

Swansea away: we used to be beautifully flawed, now we’re just flawed

I was going to start today by saying something like "where do I even start?" but this morning after yet another pathetic Arsenal display - the type of away display performance we've seen all season from this ailing team - I think I'll just throw up some of the utterly embarrassing stats that I've seen [...]

Swansea preview: desperate for an early goal

The build up to tonight's league encounter with Swansea may be dominated by a certain player coming in from Dortmund and a certain handsome Arsenal player being an option for that most horrid of clubs Chelski, but I'm preferring to focus on the reason we are here today, which is the stuff that's played on [...]

Tactical shift sees Arsenal through to Wembley

In the cold light of the new day, I can say with a degree of comfort that in the end, that was an enjoyable football match. It didn't start that well though, did it? I mean I don't really know what Arsène was thinking about when he decided to opt for four at the back [...]

The new League Cup approach – will it work tonight?

I find tonights League Cup encounter with Chelski an intriguing one. A competition that Arsène has historically been such an advocate of blooding young players in, even to the extent of getting to a final and prioritising development over giving the club the best possibility of a trophy, has this season seen a change of [...]
