Happy Sunday folks. Hope all is well with you lot? For me it was a day off from blogging yesterday, on account of it be a Christmas party on Friday, but back in the saddle today, hoping the boys are up for it and we can get ourselves three points against Southampton this lunchtime. It [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Koscielny gives Emery tactical options

The best news of yesterday has to be the return of Koscielny to the football pitch after he played for the Under-23s last night as they played Derby. It was a hammering for the team but the fact he's (unless we're told differently) come out of the game unscathed will be a big boost for [...]

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 [...]

Is Arsenal’s injury curse back?

A later one from me today, as the new job means conference calls first thing on a Friday, but given that it's been an interlull week I guess that it doesn't really make a lot of difference. Ol' Unai has taken to doing his pressers in the afternoon anyway so it's not like I have [...]

Galvanising Arsenal in wake of Welbeck injury

Happy Saturday unto thee. Although with the Welbeck situation, as well as the fact that the club are talking about Danny getting well soon, etc, I think we can put a few together to think that it's probably the worst. And that's a horrible situation. It's horrible for the player because with five goals this [...]

Uninspiring attacking Arsenal meet stubborn Sporting defence

It was a weird old game yesterday. With the goals we've been getting all season and the plaudits from an attacking point of view but not a defensive one, it felt as though we should have been dispatching Sporting Lisbon with a little more ease on our own soil. After all we'd gone to their [...]

We can be hurt by Liverpool, but we can also hurt

I've been struggling in my mind to make a case for us all week for this game, in an effort to try and manage my own expectations and forgive me - dear friends - if this blog comes across as a little too apprehensive, but I am not looking forward to this game one little [...]
