Formation flip-flopping and transfer plan confusion at Arsenal

I'd like to tell you that I'm still reeling from Sunday's performance but much like our domestic season, it all feels a little pointless and actually, it wouldn't be true, because I just feel resigned when I think about Arsenal this season in the league. People have stopped talking to me about Arsenal specifically at [...]

Flat in Newcastle as Arsenal underperform again

Arsenal fail to pick up another point in an away game in 2018. It’s getting boring now.

Match preview ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League, April 2018, in which I don’t feel massively nervous for a change. Which is nice.

Some thoughts ahead of the second leg quarter final of the Europa League. CSKA Moscow will press high and so we need Özil to find space to create chances.

Arsenal should say ‘screw it’ and experiment

On Sunday before the game I posted my preferred line up which included Özil, Lacazette, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, with our number 10s starting on paper out wide although in all honesty in my mind I saw it as a very fluid system. I remember writing years ago about Rosicky and his mobility (when not on [...]

Some pre match thoughts on the Europa League second leg between AC Milan and Arsenal at the Emirates. This game could be won or lost with the first 15 minutes.

Penalties, points and clean sheets: who are you and what have you done with Arsenal?

Where to evening start this morning. Arsenal won a football match. Again. Arsenal scored three goals. Arsenal kept a clean sheet. Petr Cech saved a flipping pelanty. It was almost as if Arsenal realised that they aren't one of the worst teams in the division, that they can actually put teams away (eventually), that they [...]

Watford at home: It’s about momentum, not points

It's another match day for the Arsenal and as annoying as it is to be another Sunday game, the reason for it being this Sunday is certainly one that we can stomach, because it's due to the teams participation in the Europa League and the excellent performance that was Milan. In a way I'm kind [...]
