Sven’s exit points to troubled times at Arsenal

It's hardly been what you'd call the best of periods in recent weeks for the Arsenal, has it? We've had a defensive injury headache causing us to put even more square pegs in round holes, a manager whose tinkering suddenly feels a little unnecessary at times, coupled with his seemingly obvious desire to ostracise key [...]

West Ham defeat shows Unai must swallow his pride on some players

Yesterday's game was, unfortunately, not a 'bad day at the office' that we can say is in isolation with this Arsenal team. Sadly our away form has dropped off of a cliff for the last month and in the league when you consider that has included Southampton, Brighton and West Ham - where we've taken [...]

Absent owner, pathetic former chairman, and a rich club with no money to spend: The Arsenal

Eventually the truth will out. And thankfully with the help of Unai Emery seemingly incapable of the levels of spin that we were used to under Arsène "only if we find super super top top quality players Wenger, he admitted that there is no money for permanent signings this January and that the club are [...]

Carrasco a no-go and United at home is so-so

So it's an FA Cup home tie against United that we have to face in the next round of the FA Cup. I guess the best way to ensure you have an easier cup final is to beat them along the way, eh? ;-) On a serious note, how are Liverpool fans going to explain [...]

Abject Arsenal embarrass themselves at Liverpool

It's hard to really find the words to describe what went on yesterday at Anfield. Adjectives like appalling, farcical, embarrassing, all spring to mind first and foremost, but even they don't feel like they really explain the performance of the excuses for footballers that took to the pitch in a mint green Arsenal kit last [...]

Arsenal defensive mitigation or attacking impotence against Southampton?

I'm struggling to fall down on a certain type of opinion on yesterday's defeat to Southampton. On the one hand we always have a terrible record there in the league. We've won once in six and yesterday was the second defeat in three years. They're becoming that pesky bogey team that Arsenal always seem to [...]

Scudamore’s Scrooge McDuck impression and pathetic Brexit football quotas

It's understandably quiet at the moment as we head into another one of these international breaks. Honestly, these things are quite vexing, I must say. If we can look at anything positive from it, it's that our momentum had been stuttering of late, but I'd really rather be playing Bournemouth away this Sunday than having [...]

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 [...]

Gazidis: the Samir Nasri CEO

Back in Blighty and back to normality for me after Portugal and New York at the weekend and whilst I was hoping to talk about the Newcastle game, impact of Torreira, Xhaka, etc, etc, it's Gazidis who seems to be dominating the topic of conversation after Arseblog News broke the story that he's set to [...]

Ramsey contract/bench links are tosh

Howdy folks, hope you've started your day in a positive fashion, reading through messages of Dennis Bergkamp who yesterday in 1995 signed for The Arsenal and went on to become a legend at the club. Thierry will always be my king, but Dennis is god. That's how it is with Arsenal fans. As for modern [...]
