Ahh man am I hanging this morning. Like, PROPER hanging, which is what booze will do to you. A LOT of booze. But what always sobers the mind is an Arsenal game and so as I hazily stab at my MacBook this morning (as I start today's blog it is technically morning, what with there being [...]

Keep up momentum by not underestimating Sporting

It's another Europa League game at the Emirates tonight and a chance to see if we can progress through the group stages and top the group with a win tonight against Sporting Lisbon. It's the part of the group that I'm sure many of us thought would be the biggest banana skin of them all [...]

We can be hurt by Liverpool, but we can also hurt

I've been struggling in my mind to make a case for us all week for this game, in an effort to try and manage my own expectations and forgive me - dear friends - if this blog comes across as a little too apprehensive, but I am not looking forward to this game one little [...]

Don’t underestimate the warm up act – Blackpool at home

Back on the horse today lads, there's an opportunity to extend the undefeated run to 13 and despite the fact we're all bricking it for Saturday evening, we should still approach tonight's game with the right attitude, approach and hopefully, safe passage in to the quarter finals of the League Cup. Blackpool are tonight's opponents [...]

Never easy with Arsenal, don’t expect that away to Palace

Howdy folks and welcome to another matchday. A matchday in which the possibility of winning 12 on the bounce is very real and yet at the same time I find myself exceedingly nervous that we could completely bugger up today's game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. I don't know what it is; perhaps it's [...]

Meritocratic Arsenal means no place for Ramsey and Özil against Leicester?

Morning folks and 'Happy Match Day!' To you and your kin. Man am I glad this has finally come around. We've had to deal with a ridiculously long international break, sit through a weekend of other teams playing, before finally getting our fill from 8pm this evening. And I for one can't wait. It's a [...]

Press high, force Fulham into mistake, and minimise your own, Arsenal

A 12pm kick off is a funny old thing. It's the earliest type of kick off you get in the Premier League and whilst I'm no fan of Sunday games anyway, I can tolerate these more because it still feels like you have something of a day after the team have played, although only if [...]

A quick start needed from the rotated Arsenal players against Qarabag

I don't really care that the Timy Totts and Scousers are in a bigger competition than us; seeing them lose is pleasurable in any competition and so to witness that 'orrible lot concede four at home to a Barca team that hasn't been in the greatest of form, is mighty pleasurable. We may not have [...]

Watford at home: A first half to savour please, Arsenal

Ahh that most sacred of things: a three o'clock kick off. How I have missed thee. I know we got one the other week against Newcastle but it didn't feel the same because a) I was in New York and not at St James' Park watching the game, and b) it wasn't at The Emirates [...]

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 [...]
