Play our best front line against Chelsea, Arsène

Match day again and it's Chelski away in the League Cup and having seen Bristol go one up against City last night it made me realise that anything is possible, including Arsenal actually beating them on their own turf this evening, although I also acknowledge that City did ultimately win it in the end. And [...]

Arsenal: the mess that is

Where does one even start? At the stories (unsubstantiated of course, after all, it is The Sun) that Alex Iwobi decided to see if he could improve his form by partying until the early hours of the morning before the FA Cup game against Forest this weekend? At the noises that City are now knocking [...]

Welbeckian finish sees us get a semi

When at halftime you're handed a Carlsberg (this is becoming a habit Andrew) and you look up at the statistics, which tell you that you're opponent hasn't even mustered an effort, corner, as well as making just three fouls, you kind of get the feeling that the game isn't quite going to finish all blood [...]

Hopefully a happy distraction against the hammers tonight

Howdy Gooners. It's that time of the week again - the match day without any pressure in the midweek! Love it. I love the feeling of going to a game where you don't want to chew all of your nails off. I love not spending the day being nervous. I love not having that feeling [...]

Are Arsenal the new Everton?

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday. I’m at a conference all day today so it means an earlier than usual start so I can rattle through a few work emails before I head off.  It’s one of those annoying things where you know you’re out of the office and you know that unless you do [...]

Nketiah’s night

The great thing about a Carrier Bag Cup game is that it throws all kinds of little Arsenal sub plots up and thankfully, in the end by the time the whistle had blown to see Arsenal through on to the quarter finals, this game against Norwich was no different. Step forward Eddie Nketiah with a [...]

Loving rotation as Norwich come to town

By | 2017-10-24T08:11:22+00:00 October 24th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Preview|0 Comments

Norwich at home this evening provides yet another game with which Arsène can rotate his squad and I have to say, with no sense of irony or sarcasm, that I’m enjoying the level of rotation we’re seeing this season from Arsenal. Perhaps it’s because I am a child of the Championship Manager and latterly Football [...]

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 [...]

Professional performance and plenty of rotation, please, Arsenal

It's the super-awesome-mega-important-one-you-definitely-want-to-win cup tonight! You know the one I mean. They named it after a Thai goat or something. The one where the draw is done in the middle of the Himalayas so that the Asian fans don't have to get up so early, because that's a really important draw for them to see, [...]

Welbz got the Arsenal curse?

By | 2017-09-19T07:57:51+00:00 September 19th, 2017|Arsenal FC, History, injuries, League Cup, premier league|0 Comments

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 [...]
