Pepe, Cahill and Under, but Unai must work with what he’s got

Morning all and welcome to the most murkiest time of the year - the January transfer window. It's a time in which rumours are rife and agents get paid and let's be honest although we all like shiny and new things it's a time in which people get a little bit more tightly wound, are [...]

Abject Arsenal embarrass themselves at Liverpool

It's hard to really find the words to describe what went on yesterday at Anfield. Adjectives like appalling, farcical, embarrassing, all spring to mind first and foremost, but even they don't feel like they really explain the performance of the excuses for footballers that took to the pitch in a mint green Arsenal kit last [...]

Trying to make a case for Arsenal away to Liverpool

Howdy all. Hope the Christmas cheer is still going strong in the family and you're enjoying the festive period. All except the football that is. I mean who could watch Match of the Day when Arsenal are messing up away from home but Liverpool, the Tiny Totts, Chelski and United were all picking up wins? [...]

Brighton showed we’re creaking; new blood needed

Howdy folks. Was travelling yesterday so I didn't really have much time to compile thoughts on the Brighton game but really, how many people want to read about the dross that we were served up on the south coast though? It was pretty turgid stuff throughout and even though we drew with Brighton, it felt [...]

Rotation of the front three is the only question Emery has against Brighton

Morning folks. Happy Boxing Day and also more importantly happy match day! This is a big one today because this Arsenal team is creaking under the weight of injuries and with a possible eight players missing from the first team, we're at a time in the season when the games come thick and fast and [...]

Festive fixtures frighten me – no slip ups from Arsenal

Happy Christmas Eve to you all and despite the fact Leicester did us a favour on Saturday, clearly it was too much to ask Everton not to be a complete shambles against Tottenham yesterday. You watch, when we go to Goodison they'll suddenly turn in to Pep's Barcelona, as opposed to the walking crash that [...]

Ozil, Xhaka and Kola star against physical Burnley

It's always nice to kick off the Christmas period with a win and having dispatched a very physical Burnley side yesterday it feels like I can enjoy at least the start of my holiday. It was always going to be a tough game against a side who are known for their stubborn resistance and after [...]

Burnley are here to frustrate – we need Mesut today

Three weeks ago I was looking at this fixture as an opportunity for Arsenal to potentially continue a good run, to be chasing down the couple of teams ahead of us, to be looking up and wondering whether we'll sneak in to that fourth spot. It's amazing what a week of football can do at [...]

NLD defeat: more worry for long term confidence than the result itself

That was properly poor yesterday. As in "things aren't all as rosy as perhaps we thought" kind of poor. We've got injuries. We've got players out. We've got a few problems and we're by no means the finished article. But that performance didn't really warrant a North London Derby and those Tiny Totts played a [...]

Less pressure from an NLD?

Morning fellow absorbers of Arsenal-related information. I hope you are well and enjoying the countdown to Christmas. As always it's about excesses for us in the western world; from food to beverages and everything in between, but it's also about the excess of football and once again we find ourselves gorging on that with another [...]
