Match day for The Arsenal again and despite the fact it's the closest you could get to a dead rubber without actually being a dead rubber, I'm still excited to be going along to see The Arsenal play a game, having not seen one live in the flesh for nearly three weeks now. The opposition [...]

Arsenal cannot underestimate the value of getting the job done tonight

Morning gooners and welcome to another match day, one in which we don't see much of for the next week, so I for one am doing my upmost to ensure that my excitement levels are heightened during my working day today. They may be a small provincial Swedish club that I hadn't have heard of [...]

NLD preview – nailed on penalty for that lot at some stage

I'm sure I've said this before on this type of game day, but I hate North London Derby's, I really do. The worry, the build up nerves, the pessimism that only seems to exist in my life when it comes to The Arsenal; all of it just builds to a crescendo for this game every [...]

Things killing the enjoyment of football; Everton match preview

I thought Arsene's presser was more interesting than a lot of his pressers that he's done in the recent past. He brought quite a few interesting topics of conversation that it's really hard to disagree with so before I go into today's match preview I think I want to delve into a couple of things [...]

Swansea preview: desperate for an early goal

The build up to tonight's league encounter with Swansea may be dominated by a certain player coming in from Dortmund and a certain handsome Arsenal player being an option for that most horrid of clubs Chelski, but I'm preferring to focus on the reason we are here today, which is the stuff that's played on [...]

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 [...]

Palace preview: High tempo, slick passing and one final Alexis game?

Happy match day goners. But will it be come 5pm? Will we have something to smile about or will it be more exasperation caused by yet another display in which the selected XI in red shirts toil over their goalscoring attempts as Crystal Palace aim to be tough to break down and hit us quick [...]

Bournemouth preview: this will be a grind

Morning folks - everyone feeling good? Everyone excited for another match day? Or, are you like me, which is that every time a match day comes around you get that dragging sensation in your stomach? It's the one where you can't quite work out whether you feel a bit sick, or you're hungry, or you [...]

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 [...]

The unknown nature of Arsenal’s line up today against Forest

Happy FA Cup Sunday boys and girls. Hope you are having a good one and preparing yourself mentally for the test that is Nottingham Forest this afternoon at 4pm. For those of us in England not going to the game we have the added stress of having to deal with the hopeless commentary that is [...]
