Well, what a happy Monday we have here thanks to The Arsenal, eh? Five goals away from home, nine wins on the bounce, six in the league, Auba and Laca both getting two, plus one of the contenders for goal of the season thanks in large part due to some excellent build up but also [...]

Press high, force Fulham into mistake, and minimise your own, Arsenal

A 12pm kick off is a funny old thing. It's the earliest type of kick off you get in the Premier League and whilst I'm no fan of Sunday games anyway, I can tolerate these more because it still feels like you have something of a day after the team have played, although only if [...]

Arsenal Almiron the case for some new blood

Morning all and welcome to another weekend. And it's one of many this season in which our Saturday's are sadly not taken up by The Arsenal. It's not fun really and doesn't feel right but I guess it is what it is. For the positive yin of having plenty to talk about yesterday following victory [...]

New formation, three points, first goals: job done against Qarabag

By | 2018-10-05T23:37:51+00:00 October 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

I've gotta say - the good thing about Thursday night games is that it makes the Friday morning commute and subsequent Arsenal blog much more palatable. Especially when the lads have gone away and notched another win and another three points to take us closer to Europa League qualification. And it's eight wins on the [...]

A quick start needed from the rotated Arsenal players against Qarabag

I don't really care that the Timy Totts and Scousers are in a bigger competition than us; seeing them lose is pleasurable in any competition and so to witness that 'orrible lot concede four at home to a Barca team that hasn't been in the greatest of form, is mighty pleasurable. We may not have [...]

Life moves quickly for Iwobi and Leno

In football things change so quickly, don't they? Life moves fast and within a few seasons the fortunes of a team can look very different. Everyone is praising Liverpool for their transfer team and dealings these days, but it wasn't long ago under Rodgers that they were lambasted for their 'committee' approach to signings. The [...]

Mass rotation on the cards at Arsenal?

With a game very far away on Thursday to worry about, I wonder if we might start to get trickles of news about the squad heading out to Baku to play Qarabag on Thursday, from today? It's a fair old schlep to play football and because of that everything probably has to be done earlier [...]

An Iwobi for Ramsey swap in the team? It’s not that simple

If ever one needs an example of how quickly fortunes can change in football, one need look no further than Alex Iwobi who with a couple of impressive substitute appearances in the league and a decent game against Brentford last midweek, has suddenly found himself thrust into the fan spotlight as clamour for his inclusion [...]

Impressive Watford not quite good enough for ‘second half Arsenal’

I didn't expect an easy game against Watford yesterday and despite the fact we got the cushion of the second goal, it certainly was what I expected from a team who have started the season well, because Watford were a confident team that rocked up at The Emirates yesterday. You didn't have to go far [...]

Watford at home: A first half to savour please, Arsenal

Ahh that most sacred of things: a three o'clock kick off. How I have missed thee. I know we got one the other week against Newcastle but it didn't feel the same because a) I was in New York and not at St James' Park watching the game, and b) it wasn't at The Emirates [...]
