An ‘unprofessional’ Arsenal performance

If last Thursday's performance against Östersunds FK was what the players described as a 'professional' performance, is it fair to say that after what we witnessed yesterday evening, we were treated to an 'unprofessional' performance? Because that's what it felt like. Let's not forget that we were up against a mid-table Swedish team who had [...]

Lacazette’s absence means ‘Dat Guy’ gets his wish

I'm looking real hard for when the good news will start coming at Arsenal, I've got to be honest with you, because yesterday's Lacazette news just feels like yet another sh*t sandwich being served up to us and told to chow down. Domestically - League Cup aside - this season has been a festering pustule [...]

Why are Arsenal so unprepared for games?

Morning all. I have to say this question has been ringing around in my head all weekend and as I wake up this morning to start a working week it still lingers. Why is it that, despite the fact we have so much preparation and rest time, our team can still look so lethargic in [...]

Meek Arsenal surrender on derby day

I wasn't confident of getting anything from the game yesterday before the match itself, but what I did have hope for was that stereotype that 'form goes out the window' and that any Derby for any team is a great leveller. Not Arsenal though. Not this Arsenal team. I'm still actually a little angry about [...]

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 [...]

Clever Dortmund put it all on Arsenal and Ivan

I suspected there might be a little bit of noise one way or the other yesterday - with regards to the Aubameyang situation - especially as Dortmund we're playing Freiburg. The first bit of noise came from the team selection and with Auba in from the start it caused some to go into overdrive panic [...]

Mkhi/Alexis: lose a maverick, gain a team player

Yesterday the protracted saga of Alexis Sanchez leaving the Arsenal - which let's not forget has gone on for essentially a year since it became clear he wasn't interested in signing a new deal - was concluded and I for one am glad that the 'saga' in itself is over. And in return Arsenal went [...]

Arsène’s last roll of the dice – transfers

The tedium of the Alexis saga appears to be moving into its final phases and having been entwined emotionally to it for the best part of 12 months, Arsenal fans will soon get the relief of it finally being over and by god, I'll be glad when it does happen. I won't be glad when [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle. [...]
