Yesterday I wrote a piece outlining that I suspected last night's game would have a bit of a testimonial match about it and in the cold light of day and ha big stood in a biting cold Emirates with half a dozen old school chums, I find myself unsurprised that it's effectively what we got [...]

Testimonial feel about Arsenal v Qarabag

It's a match day of sorts today and it's Arsenal at home to Qarabag in what is the most deaddest of dead rubbers you're going to get. And despite the fact that the Europa League was fun last season and we went deep in to it, I can't help but look at the Group Stages [...]

Lucas Torreira the Swiss Army knife

Quite obviously to anybody who has witness his rise to prominence in the last six to eight weeks, it comes as no surprise that Lucas Torreira won the November player of the month award at Arsenal, having picked up man-of-the-match displays in what feels like most of his starts this season at this stage. Based [...]

A patched up Arsenal must ‘get by’

Howdy all, hope you are well on this Tuesday. A Tuesday in which hopefully Barcelona knock out the Totts and so we really can have a chuckle at the advertising they did about Champions League football. But anyway, that's them and they're not worthy of much airtime. Today in minded of the words that Bernd [...]

Torreira the difference against Huddersfield

In the end it was 'job done' thanks to an acrobatic finish from Torreira with about seven minutes remaining on the clock, but you can hardly say it was a vintage performance again from the team, as we struggled to break down a dogged but ultimately technically limited Huddersfield team. The big questions as we [...]

We need Özil back tomorrow

As is the time of year, there's no room for any kind of major introspection of the last couple of games for the team, with a home match against Huddersfield on the horizon and having spoken to Nigel Winterburn on the show last night I found it interesting to hear him talk about physical fatigue [...]

Cynical and average United scrape a point against fatigued Arsenal

I don't know if I've ever been as tardy as today with my daily blog writing, but with it almost hitting the 3pm mark, it feels like a new record. An unwanted record of course. A bit like our away form at Old Trafford is turning out to be and once again, for the umpteenth [...]

Someday the curse of Old Trafford must be lifted for Arsenal

Midweek match day against United at Old Trafford today. It's hardly a happy stomping ground for us, having won once there since we won the league in 2002. That's sixteen years and only the odd point to come back down south with. It's by far the worst record of any away ground we have in [...]

Feel good factor back at Arsenal – earlier than I thought

Later one from me today on account with a plethora of work-related calls starting from 7am, but the burning need to splurge Arsenal-related thinking's on to my usual daily vehicle remains as strong as ever. So as I head in to the office this mid morning, I'm still somewhat basking in the glow of the [...]
