Norwich: don’t leave our fullbacks exposed and stay disciplined, Arsenal

By |November 29th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It’s match day today and another away game against a Norwich side who will be looking to pick up some points in front of their home fans and also move further away from the teams at the bottom. For us, it’s an opportunity to climb a couple of places up to second if we can […]

Seeking solace by finding out about the Arsenal opposition

Saturday’s without Arsenal are like pies without mash. You can get by, you can even find some enjoyment, but it never quite has the same impact.

That’s what we’re faced with today boys and girls. No mash. Not even a potato. Still, at least it means I can observe the other games happening today and cheer […]

Expect physicality, but to beat West Brom we need to show technical superiority

Please forgive me if I end up jinxing the outcome of today’s game, but this match today feels very much like the Swansea game of a few weeks ago, in which we had some very difficult moments but ended up winning comfortably away in South Wales.

I’m not saying that I think we’ll win today (there, […]

Victory in the Derby will show the strength of the squad

By |November 8th, 2015|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, injuries, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Here we are folks. Derby day. The most worrying day of the year as far as I’m concerned. Derby day has the potential to delight or disappoint in equal measure. A win against that lot down the wrong end of the Seven Sisters Road puts us in a superb position going in to the international […]

Munich: a steep hill to climb, but it’s only a hill, right?

By |November 4th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Attack, Champions League, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview, Tactics|0 Comments

This feels like an incredibly steep hill for the team to climb tonight. In fact, whilst not impossible, it does feel like the kind of bill that you’d probably walk around if you had the chance. 

Bayern Munich on their own patch are a formidable opponent to say the least, but given that we have already […]

Do we Arsenal fans demand more tactical analysis than we used to?

By |October 26th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Formation, gooners, Gunners, premier league, press conference, Tactics|3 Comments

That was a decent enough weekend we’ve just had, by my reckoning, don’t you think? The Manchester derby was the only real concern for us and as the two sides cancelled each other out, it ensured that we are level on points with a City side who after five games, were going to walk the […]

Everton preview: the game will be won out wide

Hello again my fellow Arsenal friends. I hope this Saturday finds you well? Are you excited for today’s game? I know I am. I’m excited because Arsenal currently have their tails up and performances have been very good both defensively and offensively of late. We’ll need to have another very high level of intensity and […]

Malaise for many, but Champions League success still burns for this Arsenal fan

By |October 20th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, press conference, Tactics|0 Comments

A night under the lights to save our Champions League season against the German champions and recent history tormentors. What more could you ask for on a random Tuesday in October?

It wasn’t meant to be this way. We were supposed to have collected six points and be looking like a draw in one of these […]

Expect frustration at Watford, but we need to start a title run now

By |October 17th, 2015|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|4 Comments

The one positive I will say that comes out of the international breaks that punctuate each season, is that when an Arsenal match day comes around, you learn to appreciate it more. That’s how I’m feeling today, with the Watford game just hours away, knowing that soon I’ll get the excited feeling of an Arsenal […]

A blitzkreig of United, a controlled second half and a majestic Arsenal

By |October 5th, 2015|Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Arsène Wenger has built has various Arsenal teams with key attributes that include technical quality, quick passing and movement and a precision in their play that – when it works – is breathtaking and what football should be all about. For the first 20 minutes of yesterday’s game that is exactly what we were treated […]
