North London remains red with the help of Emery’s tactical subs

Well now, how about that for a rocking afternoon at The Emirates, eh? Where to even start on this Monday morning? I mean obviously the final result feels like the best place to start and a 4-2 win over your local rivals, when you've been told all week by pundits that they can't see how [...]

Derby Day – Emery needs a Big Six ‘W’

Like I said yesterday in the blog, I hate these North London Derby Days, because they just bring out the worst nerves possible before a game. As Lee Dixon once famously recounted about when he played his first one having signed from Stoke and Toby Adams had him up against a wall, "we just can't [...]

I rarely enjoy the North London Derby

Here we are folks. Weekend is here and we're on countdown to the North London Derby against that 'orrible lot down the road. The good news is that our first team should be well rested and up for this game, having not travelled to Kiev on Thursday. Hopefully they're up for it because I think [...]

Kids show the Arsenal future is bright

Howdy campers! I'm feeling Friday fine and dandy I have to say, with a big part of that being the contribution of the young players, who stepped up last night and put in a composed and controlled performance away to FC Vorskla. There will be those that will say that the level of opposition were [...]

Özil away – for or against?

A wet and sodden England today makes for a happy Christopher not. It's an early start, dark, I'm wet all over and we have to wait another 36 odd hours until The Arsenal are on again. Still, at least we get a bit of midweek football so I probably shouldn't grumble too much. And there's [...]

Stop Bournemouth’s pace and through balls with our press

This game today is a difficult one to call you know. Ten years ago a team that goes up against Arsenal to 'play football' used to be an absolute dream for us, because we'd soon put them to the sword. But ever since Swansea and Michu all those years ago, teams have been able to [...]

Kos has a lot to offer as Emery talks up young rotation

Happy Saturday friends. How are we all doing? Feeling happy that it's the weekend? Or troubled that we have to wait one more day to get the real football back in the shape of The Arsenal? At least we had a press conference with ol' Unai giving us an update on where he thinks we're [...]

Arsenal lord’s are leapin’ (in to jail)

My poor ol' lookalike. The one, the only, the Lord, Nick Bentdner, has been sentenced to 'jail' for a assaulting a taxi driver; a crime he thinks he did not commit. If only there was some kind of crack team of vigilantes (they themselves who had been victims of a crime of which they did [...]

Guendouzi and Torreira: the exciting Arsenal future

Morning folks. Holy moly it's colder than an emperor penguin gathering point in London today. Well, it's actually only about four degrees but when you add a biting bit of wind to it and the fact I'm on the tube at 6.30am in the morning, it all adds up to a general feeling of discomfort. [...]
