Lucas Torreira the Swiss Army knife

Quite obviously to anybody who has witness his rise to prominence in the last six to eight weeks, it comes as no surprise that Lucas Torreira won the November player of the month award at Arsenal, having picked up man-of-the-match displays in what feels like most of his starts this season at this stage. Based [...]

Özil away – for or against?

A wet and sodden England today makes for a happy Christopher not. It's an early start, dark, I'm wet all over and we have to wait another 36 odd hours until The Arsenal are on again. Still, at least we get a bit of midweek football so I probably shouldn't grumble too much. And there's [...]

Guendouzi and Torreira: the exciting Arsenal future

Morning folks. Holy moly it's colder than an emperor penguin gathering point in London today. Well, it's actually only about four degrees but when you add a biting bit of wind to it and the fact I'm on the tube at 6.30am in the morning, it all adds up to a general feeling of discomfort. [...]

Ramsey situation isn’t like Alexis, so Bayern is palatable

Happy Friday people. Hope it goes well for you and your kin. Me, I'm toiling in the boredom levels of no Arsenal to think constantly about, but the fact I have my folks over for the weekend and the fact The Management and I are doing a bit of tourism in London tomorrow is keeping [...]

Keep up momentum by not underestimating Sporting

It's another Europa League game at the Emirates tonight and a chance to see if we can progress through the group stages and top the group with a win tonight against Sporting Lisbon. It's the part of the group that I'm sure many of us thought would be the biggest banana skin of them all [...]

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 [...]

The kids are alright against Blackpool; Torreira the terrier making us tick

With another game coming so quickly after the poor Palace performance on Sunday, there's barely any time to draw breath for Unai Emery and his charges, as is the same for us as fans. Taking stock of performances like Sunday is important because Emery will need to analyse just why we're so poor in first [...]

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 [...]
