Midfield selection and Monreal support should dictate team to face Hull

By |September 17th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

What's this? Two 3pm kick offs after each other? How novel, eh? It's bloody typical that last week I couldn't bask in the glory of a traditional 3pm kick off at home, on account of being abroad, as well as this week's game on account of it being away. And I am up in Northumberland [...]

Has anybody told Arsene?

By |September 16th, 2016|Arsene Wenger, premier league, press conference, Tactics|2 Comments

It's press conference day today, which means hopefully we'll get some answers to questions that have bemused us over the last week, like: What has Xhaka done to you? What is the nature of your relationship with Francis Coquelin? Do you know where Debuchy is? Can you you go the entire press conference without using [...]

Bizarre selection decisions rectified against PSG – just

By |September 14th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

How about last night's action for an eventful evening of European football, eh? Where do we even start??? How about pre-game, when the surprise, shock and outrage of Le Boss' team selection left some spiralling into a pit of their own melancholy, whilst others were left simply scratching their heads. After all, the line up [...]

Onus on PSG could be to our advantage on the counter

By |September 13th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Champions League, Match Preview, Tactics|2 Comments

I don't know about you, but when I get towards the end of the season, depending on how Arsenal are playing, it always feels like a bit of a slog when it gets to each match day. That's where the start of the season is always so much more enjoyable, because at this early stage [...]

I want my Arsenal squad rotation cake and eat it

Back in Blighty, back on my usual commute to work, but thankfully, also back in to the swing of all things Arsenal and there'll be no time to waste before we're off again, with the small matter of French Champions Paris Saint Germain to contend with. I'd imagine that there will be a presser at [...]

Wales Rambo and Arsenal Rambo will never be the same thing

By |July 2nd, 2016|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Internationals, midfield, Tactics|5 Comments

Wellety, wellety, wellety, how about the Welsh team, eh? Blasting their way in to the semi-finals with an Aaron Ramsey-inspired performance, no less. I didn't watch all of the game, only sporadic intervals, but what I did see was a Belgium team that were struck by the same afflictions that plagued England and those Welshies [...]

Arsenal; Finish this off with a flurry against Villa

By |May 15th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

So here we are at last. It's the final game of the 2015/16 season and what started out as one in which I thought we really would win the league this year, petered out as it usually does for Arsenal after Christmas. Our inconsistency has cost us and our injury problems have crippled us, but [...]

A new midfield style to be forged in final three games?

By |April 29th, 2016|Arsenal, injuries, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday Arsene gave an update on the players available at the weekend and wouldn't you know it, for the first time since the end of last season, everyone suddenly seems fully fit. Isn't that just the most Arsenal news of all time? Three matches before the end of the season, when everything is done and [...]

Insipid Arsenal and Arsene’s baffling selection decisions at Sunderland

By |April 25th, 2016|analysis, Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Rant, Tactics|2 Comments

Inspid was the first word that came to my mind after yesterday's display and I've already seen a number of Arsenal fans use it, so clearly I'm not alone in my view of how this Arsenal team failed again to show any kind of drive, any kind of belief and quite frankly looked like they [...]

Interesting selection choices for Arsene at Sunderland

By |April 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

With Moneychester City smashing Stoke yesterday at the Etihad, it pretty much means that they have an additional point over us with their superior goal difference. So whilst a point today would take us level with them, we really should be aiming for all three, because I think we need a gap between us by [...]
