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 [...]

Interlull nothingness or NLD fear?

Ahh man, this feels like it’s a real dragger of an Interlull, and not just because there’s little going around by the way of Arsenal news. I tune out the transfer tittle-tattle when there’s still six weeks to go until the January window opens, and when it’s a window that doesn’t usually see big clubs [...]

Appreciating Santi when he’s gone; no gung-ho tomorrow Arsene

Poor old Santi, eh? Not only does he have eight operations in a year to save his ability to walk, play football, etc, but the doctors have to take a part of his tattoo on another bit of his body as a skin graft, to sew him back up again together. There are plenty of [...]

Mat’s back and Alexis/Sead have a love in – temporary solutions

As far as I can tell there should be a press conference this morning or today at some stage, ahead of the game tomorrow night against REd Star Belgrade, so it’ll be interesting to see who Arsène brings along with him to sit in on the presser and which squad player gets the ‘bigging up’ [...]

An Arsenal superstition to be adhered/ignored?

Morning. I’m not going to wish you a ‘happy’ anything for a specific day of the year because without wanting to sound like a grumpy old man, I don’t really recognise this festival as anything other than what it is: an opportunity for retailers to ca-ching their coffers in between summer and Christmas.  What’s a [...]

Lay down a marker against Swansea

I always get nervy when there are games like today. Hey, I'm an Arsenal fan, so I get nervy about pretty much every game these days, but I feel like games like today leave a weird feeling in the pit of my stomach and I don't really like it. its when the chips are so [...]

The return of big guns welcome this weekend

A Saturday without The Arsenal always feels a little empty but, today, I’m kind of ok with it. I’m up north visiting The Management’s family ahead of an annual family meal tomorrow and although I am a traditionalist who would want for nothing more than every team playing at 3pm on a Saturday, I can’t [...]
