Holding holds his space as Emery remains guarded on form and Rambo

Proper football is finally coming back on the agenda and with it we're getting some lovely little sound bites from our man Unai. Ahh I can't tell you how much I've missed being able to talk about upcoming Arsenal. I don't know why but this particular international break has felt like a bit more of [...]

Keep Özil and Koscielny for the ones that really love them

Sooooo little to talk about in the Arsenal world right now. When headline news is the existing Arsenal ladies manager signing a new contract extension, plus Arsène Wenger saying how it wasn't good news for Germany to lose Mesut Özil (well, duh...), you know it's been a slow news week. The Özil situation isn't one [...]

Does Mesut really need a social hug?

Ahh man this Interlull is interminable. It feels like the world has literally ground to a halt as we patiently await the return of actual, proper, football. I'll be honest with you, even the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagged goals and assists for Armenia, or that Reiss Nelson bagged an Under-21 goal with a free [...]

How do we get Özil in to a 4-4-2?

After the first ten minutes on Sunday when we all realised that Emery was adopting a 4-4-2 against Fulham, I think it took me an additional ten minutes to believe it, such is the way with football fashion and the penchant for following trends. Wenger himself moved from 4-4-2 way back when so he could [...]

Arsenal Almiron the case for some new blood

Morning all and welcome to another weekend. And it's one of many this season in which our Saturday's are sadly not taken up by The Arsenal. It's not fun really and doesn't feel right but I guess it is what it is. For the positive yin of having plenty to talk about yesterday following victory [...]

Time to phase out Ramsey from Arsenal

I like Aaron Ramsey. I like his energy, the spaces he occupies, the goals he has scored and I think a fully fit Ramsey is a massive asset to the team. So whilst my title is provocative in a sense, it is 100% how I feel and is not indicative of me being a 'Ramsey [...]

Big night for rotated players to shine for Arsenal

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. [...]

Nacho’s deal is pragmatic, Özil’s rest is welcome, but Gazidis isn’t

Morning you wonderful sexy bitches, you. Well, it is for me as I write this now, having flown out to New York for the weekend with my company for a bit of a jolly. So the next couple of days will probably be somewhat disjointed blogs, although I will be waking up at 9am to [...]

Koscielny return a boost, but it’s Torreira we want to see this weekend

Mother Nature has seen fit to reward my ten days of sunshine in Portugal with typically drab weather this morning. But as I sit here on the Met Line waiting patiently for my People's Chariot to disappear into the grey smog of London, I am at least thankful that my holiday coincided with one of [...]

How to solve a problem like Xhaka

By | 2018-09-04T09:27:11+00:00 September 4th, 2018|midfield, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|8 Comments

Morning all from a cloudy Algarve, in which i'm typing today's blog whilst overlooking the sea and wondering why the sky isn't blue, which is most irritating. And as I sit here and tap away I am thinking about Granit Xhaka and the way in which he polarises opinions amongst our fanbase. After he made [...]
