Swansea away: we used to be beautifully flawed, now we’re just flawed

I was going to start today by saying something like "where do I even start?" but this morning after yet another pathetic Arsenal display - the type of away display performance we've seen all season from this ailing team - I think I'll just throw up some of the utterly embarrassing stats that I've seen [...]

Arsenal transfer apathy as a Maverick Piano Man drops in

Arsenal formally announced their first signing of the January transfer window and, as we should really come to expect, it was a low-key 'one for the future' that was snapped in an Arsenal shirt. So who have we got? A Konstant Maverick Piano-man by the sound of it, from PAS Gianna, which proves that not [...]

Defensive shambles, midfield absent, Arsenal reboot please

Watching Arsenal as a neutral must be great fun. A bit like Liverpool. Goals, but quite frankly, shambolic defenders and you have yourself a recipe for enjoyment from an armchair and a beer and not a lot else. Unfortunately for me, and I suspect you if you're reading this, the emotional investment in Arsenal isn't [...]

Three points, but Arsenal are still struggling for cohesion

Happy Sunday folks, hope you're all gravy, especially after a Saturday in which three points for the Arsenal were had? It felt like a bit of a slog though, didn't it? A win is a win is a win, but we made it feel a little bit harder than it should have been, as Newcastle [...]

Arsenal have no identity – West Ham away thoughts

As I stood in the stands up in the gods, with my feet numb through the ice of a cold midweek away bore draw to a very average West Ham, I couldn't help but think to myself: What are Arsenal these days? What is our identity. That's the overriding emotion I took from the stagnant [...]

Formation tinkering to give more bodies in midfield against West Ham?

Some thoughts ahead of the December 2017 game against West Ham. Arsenal might just change their formation given the recent injuries.

The fun of midweek Arsenal – Red Star preview

It’s another European exertion for the fringe players tonight, as ‘Arsenal Midweek Select XI’ take on Red Star Belgrade at The Emirates and as I’ve said before, I’m coming around to this midweek football, mainly because it doesn’t seem to have the same tenseness that I get around the Premier League games. Also known as [...]

Nketiah’s night

The great thing about a Carrier Bag Cup game is that it throws all kinds of little Arsenal sub plots up and thankfully, in the end by the time the whistle had blown to see Arsenal through on to the quarter finals, this game against Norwich was no different. Step forward Eddie Nketiah with a [...]
