Hooray for match day I say! After the last few days of it being about Ivan and his departure, after back-to-back away games in between an international break, we finally get back to The Arsenal at home and tonight is the first time I'm back to The Emirates since the opening day defeat to City. [...]

Will Cardiff cliché Arsenal into defeat today?

I think this is going to be tough against Cardiff today. It'll be gritty, they'll leave tackles in on us, try to be overly physical and despite the fact Stoke are thankfully nowhere near playing us again in the league, I reckon we'll have a similar experience against the Welsh side today. Why? Well frankly [...]

West Ham at home: we need players with passing range

Happy Saturday one and all, hope you're having a good one, especially since the season can now officially start today after a couple of engine stalls. Of course the engine could still fall apart on us today and anybody expecting West Ham to be a nice easy ride should probably have a think about that [...]

High pres versus high press: Chelsea v Arsenal preview

Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

Nerves, unpredictability, possibility: The Arsenal are back

Morning all! Excited? I know I am. Of course I'm also absolutely bricking myself as to what lies ahead because quite frankly, the Premier League random fixture generator couldn't have made it more difficult for us if it tried. Man City were so many streaks ahead of everyone else last season that it's hard to [...]

Arsenal’s final dress rehearsal, poor Sead and Iwobi’s pivotal season

I'm at a wedding today. Which is going to be really awks when I put my headphones in at 7pm to watch the Arsenal v Lazio game on Arsenal Player. Oh well, people will organise life-changing events when the last pre season friendly is on... Tonight will be fascinating I think. It'll be intriguing because [...]

Team takes shape tonight – with or without Rambo

I think this'll be an interesting game this evening against Chelski. Yes it's a pre season friendly. Yes it means little in the grand scheme of things. And yes the players are still adapting to life under Emery. But this will be a good opportunity for us to see what sort of side is taking [...]

Ramsey: sign or be sold within a week

It's hotter than hell in the UK today. But you'll nee find me complaining that's for sure. I don't care that I have to squeeze myself into a suit for work because this type of summer feels like it comes along once in a lifetime and so I'm just embracing it. Much like Aaron Ramsey [...]

Early positive Arsenal signs at Borehamwood

Morning all! A bright one in London, which is becoming an awesome habit that Mother Nature is getting in to. I could certainly get used to a life like this if it happened every year. I could handle the rain, the grey, the cold and sleet, if it meant we get a few months of [...]

Say ‘eff you’ to this season with a win, Arsenal

So here we are folks. A historic day. The Arsenal and Arsène Wenger united and together for the very last time. It still hasn't properly sunk in that he won't be around after today but I suspect once we see all the tributes pour in, the media fawning and the Match of the Day crew [...]
