Today is the first time we'll hear from Arsene Wenger properly since the announcement was made on Friday about his exit but, in true Wenger style, I suspect he will want to dwell little on that and more on the game today. So I'll follow suit after this opening few words. But I do think [...]

Newcastle away with a distinct lack of nerves

Match preview ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League, April 2018, in which I don’t feel massively nervous for a change. Which is nice.

Some thoughts ahead of the second leg quarter final of the Europa League. CSKA Moscow will press high and so we need Özil to find space to create chances.

How much rotation today against Southampton?

By | 2018-04-08T09:55:49+00:00 April 8th, 2018|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

The big question about the Arsenal team today is: How much will Arsene Wenger rotate today? There's little doubt that there will be some element of rotation (you can do a bit of betting - as well as some casino stuff here at 1xbet promo code if you fancy it) but should he completely reshuffle his pack [...]

Watford at home: It’s about momentum, not points

It's another match day for the Arsenal and as annoying as it is to be another Sunday game, the reason for it being this Sunday is certainly one that we can stomach, because it's due to the teams participation in the Europa League and the excellent performance that was Milan. In a way I'm kind [...]

Just keep us in it, Arsenal

Morning all and a strange morning it is for me, because I'm not sure whether I want to go all out schadenfreude after those Tiny Totts lost at home to Juve, given that the footballing fates are so fickle and will probably punish me by seeing Arsenal all but out tonight with a hammering. On [...]

Brighton away: first goal and 15 mins key

A night of karaoke and beer/rum has essentially obliterated my Sunday morning, so I think I'll keep today's pre match blog rather short, because from when I'm typing now kick off is about two hours away and the team news will be put by the time I've fried up my bacon and egg as the [...]
