Lethargic Arsenal have Leno to thank against Wolves

By | 2018-11-12T08:18:32+00:00 November 12th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|1 Comment

After a week in which many teams have European football there's often a tendency for the games to be a little flat. We used to see it back in the day of the Champions League attendance we had. Perhaps that could be labelled at a few teams at the top of the division this weekend, [...]

Uninspiring attacking Arsenal meet stubborn Sporting defence

It was a weird old game yesterday. With the goals we've been getting all season and the plaudits from an attacking point of view but not a defensive one, it felt as though we should have been dispatching Sporting Lisbon with a little more ease on our own soil. After all we'd gone to their [...]

Liverpool result shows Emery is getting through to the players

I didn't blog yesterday on account of a raging hang over that really didn't see me feel human until about 2pm yesterday, but suffice to say that despite my personal fear and negativity surrounding a potential home battering by Liverpool, we have a really good account of ourselves and I think most Gooners will be [...]

Guendouzi the headline grabber against Blackpool

Well my warnings from yesterday were certainly a bit of a waste of time in the end, eh? I said we shouldn't underestimate Blackpool and whilst there was a little patch after we went down to ten that looked a little nervy - not helped by some shoddy 'keeping by Cech that could have led [...]

Frustration at Arsenal’s approach at Palace

Today is a blog of, ultimate lunch, frustration I'm afraid. It's frustration because that wonderful winning run that we've been on came to an end away to Crystal Palace, but also it's frustration about the way in which it happened. There were a a few factors involved in the way I feel this morning: The [...]

Functional Arsenal make it 11 on the bounce

By | 2018-10-26T07:03:47+00:00 October 26th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Europa League, Match Review, Unai Emery|0 Comments

After an 11th consecutive victory we really should be getting any minor niggles and parking them right now I think, but it's hard to completely ignore them, so I'll quickly get them out of the way first and then we can start to talk about the good stuff. Sporting Lisbon are - let's face it [...]

Özil stars, but plenty step up against Leicester

I could really get used to "second half Arsenal" you know. Like, really get used to them. I'm not too fussed about "first half Arsenal, if I'm honest; in fact I'd happily never see "first half Arsenal" ever again, thank you kindly. That's what we have to get used to though. I'm trying to reconcile [...]

Emeryball starting to take shape after Fulham spanking?

Well, what a happy Monday we have here thanks to The Arsenal, eh? Five goals away from home, nine wins on the bounce, six in the league, Auba and Laca both getting two, plus one of the contenders for goal of the season thanks in large part due to some excellent build up but also [...]

Impressive Watford not quite good enough for ‘second half Arsenal’

I didn't expect an easy game against Watford yesterday and despite the fact we got the cushion of the second goal, it certainly was what I expected from a team who have started the season well, because Watford were a confident team that rocked up at The Emirates yesterday. You didn't have to go far [...]

Welbeck quietly impressing and Laca to the rescue against Brentford

It's fair to say that the main requirement of yesterday was delivered: a better first half and progression to the next round of the League Cup. The former was important so as to avoid our lacklustre first half performances becoming "a thing". We'd not exactly clicked in the first 45 this season, save for a [...]
