Arsenal cannot underestimate the value of getting the job done tonight

Morning gooners and welcome to another match day, one in which we don't see much of for the next week, so I for one am doing my upmost to ensure that my excitement levels are heightened during my working day today. They may be a small provincial Swedish club that I hadn't have heard of [...]

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 [...]

NLD preview – nailed on penalty for that lot at some stage

I'm sure I've said this before on this type of game day, but I hate North London Derby's, I really do. The worry, the build up nerves, the pessimism that only seems to exist in my life when it comes to The Arsenal; all of it just builds to a crescendo for this game every [...]

My best Arsenal XI – any surprises?

Morning all, hope you are grand and dandy and you have woken up to a Thursday in which great things can happen? Alternatively it could just be a regular run-of-the-mill Thursday in which you get to the end of your day and wonder what you have actually achieved. Life, eh? Arsène will do his press [...]

Arsenal’s rampant new attacking era? Everton match review

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's match from the first minute to the last. I generally hate evening kick offs on a Saturday because they pretty much ruin any chance of going out in the evening for me given travel home, etc, but if we played like that every week then i'd happily accept any time to [...]

Things killing the enjoyment of football; Everton match preview

I thought Arsene's presser was more interesting than a lot of his pressers that he's done in the recent past. He brought quite a few interesting topics of conversation that it's really hard to disagree with so before I go into today's match preview I think I want to delve into a couple of things [...]

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 [...]

Swansea preview: desperate for an early goal

The build up to tonight's league encounter with Swansea may be dominated by a certain player coming in from Dortmund and a certain handsome Arsenal player being an option for that most horrid of clubs Chelski, but I'm preferring to focus on the reason we are here today, which is the stuff that's played on [...]

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 [...]
