Injuries to force Arsène’s formation hand tomorrow?

Morning folks. Gee-golly it's a cold one in London this morning, sure to be as frosty as Arsène's response when he's asked why he can't put together a team that can win consistently away from home. Wins against Watford, Stoke and Southampton this last weekend just gone would probably see us as one of the [...]

Dire defensive displays will derail Arsenal’s season

We've got to all be honest with ourselves here: this team is probably going to fall away from even challenging from the top four if we continue to put in performances away from home like yesterday. Giroud's late flick in on 88 minutes may have taken some of the stink of the performance away, but [...]

Mustafi’s absence could be an issue for Xhaka – Southampton v Arsenal preview

I've awoken this morning to snow. It really is quite magical this time of year and London is white with it. In a way I'm glad we don't have a home game because getting to the Emirates on the Met Line today could be an absolute nightmare. But it's an away day and for many [...]

Loving that tonight’s Arsenal game is meaningless

Morning fellow Gooners. Ain't nothing like a match day, eh? And there ain't nothing like a match day in which there are absolutely no consequences whatsoever despite win, lose or draw, having qualified for the next round of the Europa League in the last set of fixtures. I get quite nervous every match day and [...]

Arsenal fixtures to counter N’Zonzi/transfer Arsenal guff

I'm so glad that this December is chocked full of football matches, specifically Arsenal matches, of course. All thanks to the Europa League and continuing League Cup status of the club. The reason I'm pretty chuffed is that it somewhat (sadly not completely) drowns out some of the unsavoury noises of transfer tittle-tattle that we're [...]

Forest away points, rotation balance for BATE and Sven’s bedding in

I've never been to Nottingham. It's not like I've had a reason to, if I'm honest though, but all that has changed now that Arsenal have drawn Forest in the third round of the FA Cup. An away trip in January beckons and given that it's one of the few games in which I can [...]

That United game hurts my brain still

Yesterday I had family over, which was a very fortunate excuse for not blogging, or having anything to do with the existence of Football, if I'm honest with you. I just didn't want the rage of knowing that Arsenal had a massive missed opportunity. And given the fact that the team had enough chances to [...]
