Özil stars, but plenty step up against Leicester

I could really get used to "second half Arsenal" you know. Like, really get used to them. I'm not too fussed about "first half Arsenal, if I'm honest; in fact I'd happily never see "first half Arsenal" ever again, thank you kindly. That's what we have to get used to though. I'm trying to reconcile [...]

Meritocratic Arsenal means no place for Ramsey and Özil against Leicester?

Morning folks and 'Happy Match Day!' To you and your kin. Man am I glad this has finally come around. We've had to deal with a ridiculously long international break, sit through a weekend of other teams playing, before finally getting our fill from 8pm this evening. And I for one can't wait. It's a [...]

Arsenal need one top dog, not two

Happy Saturday to all of you wonderful people from a slightly grey Amsterdam, in which this weekend I'll be spending my time ahead of a marathon on Sunday morning and I must say thanks to the TV companies, because for once they've worked in my favour. I don't get back from Amsterdam until Monday at [...]

Holding holds his space as Emery remains guarded on form and Rambo

Proper football is finally coming back on the agenda and with it we're getting some lovely little sound bites from our man Unai. Ahh I can't tell you how much I've missed being able to talk about upcoming Arsenal. I don't know why but this particular international break has felt like a bit more of [...]

Keep Özil and Koscielny for the ones that really love them

Sooooo little to talk about in the Arsenal world right now. When headline news is the existing Arsenal ladies manager signing a new contract extension, plus Arsène Wenger saying how it wasn't good news for Germany to lose Mesut Özil (well, duh...), you know it's been a slow news week. The Özil situation isn't one [...]

Does Mesut really need a social hug?

Ahh man this Interlull is interminable. It feels like the world has literally ground to a halt as we patiently await the return of actual, proper, football. I'll be honest with you, even the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagged goals and assists for Armenia, or that Reiss Nelson bagged an Under-21 goal with a free [...]

Koscielny is so bored with internationals he’s quit

Happy Monday folks. Hope you're all fine and dandy given the international break boredom we are all collectively enduring right now. I mean it really is a snooze fest, eh? I'm not sure how anyone can claim to have any interest in it at this time of the year. Especially if you're an Arsenal fan. [...]

Is Thierry’s fast track good for Arsenal?

So it seems there is so little to talk about when it comes to The Arsenal this morning, that all I really have to peruse over for my morning bowl of Frosties is a story emerging that Thierry Henry is about to take the reigns at Monaco, after Jardim was sacked, with Monaco currently 18th [...]

Nelson – the first proper Arsenal LANS?

I'm sorry but anybody who can get remotely 'up for' this selection of international football boredom festivals that are arranged for this weekend probably needs an enima from Dr Seward from Dracula Dead and Loving it. For me the only purpose these intermissions of proper football provide is when we're on a poor run of [...]

Emery’s juggling keeps everyone happy

With no proper football on this week it feels a bit weird having little of interest to talk about, especially given the winning run and the volume of Arsenal matches we've been gifted. Even the European competition has been fun to see us win, albeit with a little bit too much huff and puff at [...]
