Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Xhaka with space could be the difference against Watford

I don't really know what to make of tonight's game. There's part of me that looks at the form we were in before the international break and think that yes, we're on a good run and we should beat Watford, but even though that is the case there are a couple of nagging doubts I [...]

Nothing wrong with a routine Arsenal display

I thought yesterday was the archetypal 'routine' win for Arsenal yesterday which, given how tired I was feeling after a heavy night of booze and karaoke followed by an early get up for The Arsenal, is no bad thing. One set piece free kick against the woodwork in the first half aside, we controlled possession [...]

Laca looks ‘Wrighty’, Alexis looks too individual against Baggies

A win to set the week off is always a good thing. A win with a clean sheet is also very delightful. A win I. Which your star striker bags a brace is also something to savour. So on a relatively balmy night in North London yesterday evening, I'm pleased that it's just what was [...]

Job done for Arsenal, little more

I wouldn't have described yesterday's victory against Doncaster Rovers as 'thrilling'. Nor would I put it down as 'comprehensive'. It was certainly a win and safe passage to the fourth round against Norwich at The Emirates, but it was hardly a humdinger of a cup tie, was it? As expected Arsène rotated his whole team [...]

Discipline, organisation and positives: Arsenal vs Chelski

Well how about that for a turn up for the books?  Away from home. To Chelski. Game management.  A modern day Arsène Wenger team performance. Sure, it wasn't the victory we craved but hey, there was enough in that 0-0 at Stamford Bridge to suggest that actually when their heads are screwed on, this Arsenal [...]

A development squad and something different in Europe for Arsenal

Arsène's press conference today will be interesting, not least because despite strongly hinting at rotation for this European competition we find ourselves in this season, we still don't categorically know just how much rotation the manager intends on tomorrow evening against Cologne.  Is he going to go the whole hog and switch the entire team [...]

Are this Arsenal team fighting for the manager? Bournemouth preview

It feels like a lot has happened since the last matchday. Maybe it's just me but it feels like Arsenal have gone through a lot and here we are at the other side and today, it is time the players delivered, because anything else but a win would feel like we're really in trouble. We've [...]

Arsenal and Arsène are insulting us all

I can't hold back this morning. What happened yesterday at Anfield was nothing short of a disgrace. It was symptomatic of Arsenal football club under this tired and dated manager who mollycoddles and placates a collective of underperforming premadonnas who do not deserve to put on the Arsenal shirt. Yesterday was the culmination of a [...]

Anfield isn’t fun for Arsenal, today won’t be either, I suspect

Today's game against Liverpool isn't exactly one in which we go in to on good form, nor is it a place that we historically - 89 aside - enjoy going to, particularly in recent history. So personally I'm not too confident that we'll be coming away from Anfield with three points tucked safely under our [...]
