Wing backs are key against Leicester tonight 

By |April 26th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Midweek match day. An opportunity to break up the monotony of the working week with a spot of Arsenal and if the footballing gods are with us, hopefully a victory to add the gloss to the weekend semi final win. It's a resurrected Leicester City who come to town and despite the fact we haven't [...]

Season defining game at Wembley

By |April 23rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, soccer, Tactics|0 Comments

I'm sure I'm not alone in breathing a collective sigh of relief at what happened yesterday at Wembley. The fact that everyone has been speculating in the media on a possible Tottenham match towards a double has left a horrible taste in the mouth and a churning of the stomach. So when the final whistle [...]

Repair the damage for next week’s semi final 

By |April 17th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league|1 Comment

The second Monday night football of the season provides us with a chance to at least get back to some kind of winning ways ahead of next weekend's FA Cup semi final and I must say that if we can't turn over a Middlesbrough side who are in freefall from the Premier League at the [...]

Arsenal need to be wary of Palace’s counter

By |April 10th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Just as I expected when I wrote my blog on Saturday morning, pretty much everybody above and below us in the Premier League won over the weekend, which means only victory tonight against Palace will see us tread water. It's a difficult situation to be in that's for sure. The opponents will also make it [...]

City will want to exposure our full backs today

By |April 2nd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Victory today is the only option. A draw will only seem as though the team has further regressed from the target of Champions League football and personally, I suspect it will also mean we will have too much to do to take one of the four spots for next season. It doesn't even matter if [...]

No sluggish start, Arsenal, we need three points

By |March 18th, 2017|Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

A lunchtime kick off today means there's no hanging around before we get in to the football action this weekend. I kind of like that. It feels like we've had to wait for Arsenal to play of late, so to get a game in nice and early on a Saturday is pretty good for me, [...]

Let’s get to Wembley

By |March 11th, 2017|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence, FA Cup, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

Today is about winning. Nothing else would be remotely successful, but equally, at this stage I could not care less how it's done. I just want us to get to Wembley. If it's a functional 'one nil to the Arsenal' then fine. Let's just do it and be done with it. If it's a high [...]

The copy/paste blog from the last few seasons?

By |March 7th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview|0 Comments

I don't really know where to begin today. This is the first time where I've had a pre-match blog and can't really think of anything remotely useful to say. Half of me thought about finding my pre match blog from the season before last, or the one before that, and doing a 'copy/paste' job. But [...]

Arsenal must counter Liverpool’s high press

By |March 4th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

This will be a really tough game today. Mark my words. Don't believe anything you read that suggests that Liverpool's woeful 2017 form will give us hope, because I certainly am not and I fully expect them to be more up for it, than ever before. I watched the Liverpool/Tottenham game at Anfield a couple [...]

We need an answer from Wenger and the team

By |March 3rd, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we finally got a bit of news to chew on yesterday, with Arsène assuming the usual position in front of the furry mics and talking ahead of the game on Saturday. And unsurprisingly, most of the chitter-chatter centred around his contract, to which he also (unsurprisingly) batted away and gave no real indication on [...]
