Emery’s juggling keeps everyone happy

With no proper football on this week it feels a bit weird having little of interest to talk about, especially given the winning run and the volume of Arsenal matches we've been gifted. Even the European competition has been fun to see us win, albeit with a little bit too much huff and puff at [...]

Welbeck quietly impressing and Laca to the rescue against Brentford

It's fair to say that the main requirement of yesterday was delivered: a better first half and progression to the next round of the League Cup. The former was important so as to avoid our lacklustre first half performances becoming "a thing". We'd not exactly clicked in the first 45 this season, save for a [...]

League Cup gives chances for some, but Brentford are no mugs

Match day for The Arsenal unfortunately - not from my perspective because we haven't played and won our League Cup game as it hasn't been played yet - can't really be laced with lashings of schadenfreude in relation to Derby's win at Old Trafford. If we can overcome Brentford tonight then by all means, I'll [...]

A squad balance to be found against Brentford

Tuesday is upon us friends and what I always like a about Tuesday after a Sunday game, is that it's usually when all of the stats boffins come out with their analysis on matches, firing xG charts into the great beyond of the internet and generally telling us why the game should, or shouldn't, have [...]

Winning the cup: formation, Welbeck and finding Auba

Cup final Sunday. I must admit to you that I do prefer it when it lands on a Saturday and is in May, because it's a much more pleasurable experience than having to be layered up in February. But let's not look a gift horse in the mouth, eh? After all, at least we're once [...]

Hoping Arsene is thinking three

Morning folks, how you doing, on this cup final weekend? I have a little scratchy throat problem going on which, in prep for a final in which I intend to completely decimate my voice from songs from before I've even arrived at the ground tomorrow, isn't exactly a good sign. What isn't also a good [...]

Will an Arsenal free weekend rekindle the excitement for next weekend?

Howdy Gooners, y'all alreet? How arte you feeling on a footballess Saturday? Bored? Finding out that there are other things in life? Enjoying the freedom that the complete failure against Forest in the third round of the FA Cup brings? Obviously I want Arsenal to win every competition and i'd much prefer we had  shot [...]

Ticket allocations and Ramsey-based decisions

Happy 'Middle-o-week' day to thee, my wonderful Arsenal supporting colleague, I hope yours is a good one? If you're a UK-based Arsenal fab and a season ticket holder then I guess the answer to that is dependent on whether or not you got lucky in the ballot yesterday for the cup final. By and large [...]

Tactical shift sees Arsenal through to Wembley

In the cold light of the new day, I can say with a degree of comfort that in the end, that was an enjoyable football match. It didn't start that well though, did it? I mean I don't really know what Arsène was thinking about when he decided to opt for four at the back [...]

The new League Cup approach – will it work tonight?

I find tonights League Cup encounter with Chelski an intriguing one. A competition that Arsène has historically been such an advocate of blooding young players in, even to the extent of getting to a final and prioritising development over giving the club the best possibility of a trophy, has this season seen a change of [...]
