Holding holds his space as Emery remains guarded on form and Rambo

Proper football is finally coming back on the agenda and with it we're getting some lovely little sound bites from our man Unai. Ahh I can't tell you how much I've missed being able to talk about upcoming Arsenal. I don't know why but this particular international break has felt like a bit more of [...]

Keep Özil and Koscielny for the ones that really love them

Sooooo little to talk about in the Arsenal world right now. When headline news is the existing Arsenal ladies manager signing a new contract extension, plus Arsène Wenger saying how it wasn't good news for Germany to lose Mesut Özil (well, duh...), you know it's been a slow news week. The Özil situation isn't one [...]

Does Mesut really need a social hug?

Ahh man this Interlull is interminable. It feels like the world has literally ground to a halt as we patiently await the return of actual, proper, football. I'll be honest with you, even the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagged goals and assists for Armenia, or that Reiss Nelson bagged an Under-21 goal with a free [...]

Is Thierry’s fast track good for Arsenal?

So it seems there is so little to talk about when it comes to The Arsenal this morning, that all I really have to peruse over for my morning bowl of Frosties is a story emerging that Thierry Henry is about to take the reigns at Monaco, after Jardim was sacked, with Monaco currently 18th [...]

Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

I think I owe Mkhitaryan an apology

I write this blog every morning on my way to work. It's a bit of a schlep and so I get about 45 minutes to compile some thoughts and as a result I'm not exactly one for research to the nth degree. I write this blog as a compilation of my own personal ramblings on [...]

How do we get Özil in to a 4-4-2?

After the first ten minutes on Sunday when we all realised that Emery was adopting a 4-4-2 against Fulham, I think it took me an additional ten minutes to believe it, such is the way with football fashion and the penchant for following trends. Wenger himself moved from 4-4-2 way back when so he could [...]

Emeryball starting to take shape after Fulham spanking?

Well, what a happy Monday we have here thanks to The Arsenal, eh? Five goals away from home, nine wins on the bounce, six in the league, Auba and Laca both getting two, plus one of the contenders for goal of the season thanks in large part due to some excellent build up but also [...]

A quick start needed from the rotated Arsenal players against Qarabag

I don't really care that the Timy Totts and Scousers are in a bigger competition than us; seeing them lose is pleasurable in any competition and so to witness that 'orrible lot concede four at home to a Barca team that hasn't been in the greatest of form, is mighty pleasurable. We may not have [...]

Life moves quickly for Iwobi and Leno

In football things change so quickly, don't they? Life moves fast and within a few seasons the fortunes of a team can look very different. Everyone is praising Liverpool for their transfer team and dealings these days, but it wasn't long ago under Rodgers that they were lambasted for their 'committee' approach to signings. The [...]
