Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Xhaka with space could be the difference against Watford

I don't really know what to make of tonight's game. There's part of me that looks at the form we were in before the international break and think that yes, we're on a good run and we should beat Watford, but even though that is the case there are a couple of nagging doubts I [...]

Injuries kicking in -Full Arsenal style

Morning folks. Lots of juicy Arsenal stuff to talk about today, so let's get right down to it, starting from where I left off yesterday which was that Arsène confirmed what Özil's agent said which was that talks were going well. of course we'd hardly expect the manager to say "it's a faaaaaacking shambles actually. We [...]

Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]

Defensive rotation at Arsenal – but are they ready?

Last night as Wales' World Cup Qualifying campaign drew to a close I spared a thought for poor ol' Aaron Ramsey. A good player who should probably be somebody who gets to showcase his skills at a World Cup finals, was denied victory by the reprobate that is James McClean, a player who I think [...]

No Mai Tai’s for Theo; Jack needs his body to hold together

Not content with a lie in after Thursday night's squad rotation game against Doncaster, Arsène was back in to London Colney yesterday to give his pre-match presser to those bleary-eyed hacks who had travelled in following their deadlines for copy the night before. First and foremost came the team news and it's a good job [...]

Job done for Arsenal, little more

I wouldn't have described yesterday's victory against Doncaster Rovers as 'thrilling'. Nor would I put it down as 'comprehensive'. It was certainly a win and safe passage to the fourth round against Norwich at The Emirates, but it was hardly a humdinger of a cup tie, was it? As expected Arsène rotated his whole team [...]

Welbz got the Arsenal curse?

Poor old Welbz.  If what is to be believed from the The Telegraph yesterday, it could mean a month on the sidelines for a player who it's fair to say, has had the most unlucky time with injuries since signing. It's almost as if joining Arsenal condemned a fit player to some kind of injury [...]

Giroud’s worth proven In bonkers game

Well that was just flipping bizarre. How do you analyse that game last night? How can you make any kind of assessment that makes any kind of sense of what transpired yesterday evening, then use it to work out whether we're basically in the sh*t this season, or whether we'll be alright? I guess the [...]

Morale booster ahead of the real stuff for Arsenal

Victory in the 'Jose Treble' cup assured yesterday, our second trophy of pre season and a cast iron GUARANTEE that we will win the league, league cup, FA Cup and Europa League, all without dropping any points or conceding any goals. Or not. Before the game we were all clear that you can't read too [...]
