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 [...]

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

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 [...]

Ticket allocations and Ramsey-based decisions

Happy 'Middle-o-week' day to thee, my wonderful Arsenal supporting colleague, I hope yours is a good one? If you're a UK-based Arsenal fab and a season ticket holder then I guess the answer to that is dependent on whether or not you got lucky in the ballot yesterday for the cup final. By and large [...]

New signing adrenaline shot for Arsenal

It's nice when sometimes your team isn't the only one imploding in front of your very eyes. So when I read that Chelski had fallen to a 4-1 defeat at Watford, I let out a little smile, because it appears they're in as much turmoil as we've been in this season. It just took them [...]

A happy training ground at Arsenal?

Since our comprehensive victory over Everton on Saturday evening I've been feeling overwhelmingly positive. A win will do that for you. A big win will definitely do that for you. But also the hope that something has changed at the club will 100% make you feel good. I saw that Aubameyang put a nice message [...]

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 [...]
