I've awoken this morning to snow. It really is quite magical this time of year and London is white with it. In a way I'm glad we don't have a home game because getting to the Emirates on the Met Line today could be an absolute nightmare. But it's an away day and for many [...]

Loving that tonight’s Arsenal game is meaningless

By | 2017-12-07T07:53:50+00:00 December 7th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|0 Comments

Morning fellow Gooners. Ain't nothing like a match day, eh? And there ain't nothing like a match day in which there are absolutely no consequences whatsoever despite win, lose or draw, having qualified for the next round of the Europa League in the last set of fixtures. I get quite nervous every match day and [...]

Arsenal to open up the festive cheer against United?

By | 2017-12-02T09:45:58+00:00 December 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday we hit December, which means I can officially go FULL CHRISTMAS CHEER, starting yesterday with the decorations going up in the house and Home Alone on in the background. I love this time of year. Everyone seems to be much happier. So what I - and by extension you - could really do without, [...]

Arsenal need the all-important first goal against Burnley

Moaning y'all and welcome to Sunday match day, a day in which we once again travel away to a tough ground to try to pick up three points against an in form team, in the shape of Burnley. This'll be a tough one today. Burnley are an established Premier League side under Dyche but more [...]

Options for Arsenal on ‘Match Day B’ vs Koln

Match day today, although given it's featuring an Arsenal B team, perhaps games like the one this evening against F.C. Koln should be renamed 'Match Day B'? It's a curious one, is today's game, because we're up against a German side who are on their own turf. It's also a team who gave us a [...]

The nerves of the NLD – how can any fan enjoy this?

I'm sat here at my Macbook staring blankly at white space. It's North London Derby day and I've got that very familiar feeling that comes at least twice a season minimum. We play them. That lot down the road. The noisy neighbours. The chirpiest of chirpy fans. The ones that we've always said live in our [...]

Solid, compact, counter – Arsenal’s gameplan against Man City

By | 2017-11-04T08:57:13+00:00 November 5th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Defence, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Morning all, hope you're all feeling rather fantastic this morning? Or are you like me and not really looking forward to the prospect of playing the supposed 'champions elect' on their own turf this afternoon? Well actually, I'm more concerned with getting some pig inside of me, because i had a bit of an evening [...]

It’s another European exertion for the fringe players tonight, as ‘Arsenal Midweek Select XI’ take on Red Star Belgrade at The Emirates and as I’ve said before, I’m coming around to this midweek football, mainly because it doesn’t seem to have the same tenseness that I get around the Premier League games. Also known as [...]

Lay down a marker against Swansea

I always get nervy when there are games like today. Hey, I'm an Arsenal fan, so I get nervy about pretty much every game these days, but I feel like games like today leave a weird feeling in the pit of my stomach and I don't really like it. its when the chips are so [...]
