Little bit lies

You and I may already be aware that Arsenal's Premier League campaign is already run and that Champions League football is unlikely to reach the Emirates next season, but Arsène had to put a brace face on it and talk up how the team will keep fighting, etc, etc, but at this stage does anybody [...]

Arsenal’s run in – the numbers don’t look good

Morning. How are you doing? Still licking your wounds from Sunday?  Yeah I know. Me too.  It's probably a good thing that there's a bit of quiet coming out of the club this week. They're all probably wrapped up in their bubbles somewhere. As for you and I, we have to deal with Tiny Totts [...]

Arsenal: The institutionalised fanbase

I don't really feel much like blogging today if I'm honest with you. I mean I will, after all it's my thing that I do when I get up in the morning and sit on a train hurtling towards London for a day of grind, but certainly the desire has been sapped out of me. [...]

Arsenal players don’t fight for our club

All last week I spoke to Gooners about yesterday's north London Derby and despite our fragile confidence and dodgy form, I was told by many that we had a chance because it is a derby match and form goes out of the window in derbies. My retort to people was "not for Arsenal. Not away. [...]

A cagey affair awaits on Sunday, despite what Arsène says

Lots of things to get through from yesterday's press conference, so there's some 'cracking on' to be had, I feel. First and foremost, the team news, which sees Koscielny as rated as 60% to play on Sunday. I'll be honest and say I like those odds, because we need Laurent to be available to hold [...]

The most difficult NLD ever?

Went to bed early last night and as a result, didn't catch the final whistle of the United game, but as I'm sure you'll tell me that's no real loss because by the sounds of it, it was a drab affair. Imagine that? A Mourinho team going away from home and shutting up shop for [...]

Gritty Arsenal find a way against Leicester. Just.

Three on the bounce feels lovely this morning doesn't it? It certainly felt good when I knew the game was over and on the surface, this new formation looks decent, with three victories and an Arsenal team that look like they're building their confidence to play it more and more with each game. Whether it's [...]

Wing backs are key against Leicester tonight

Midweek match day. An opportunity to break up the monotony of the working week with a spot of Arsenal and if the footballing gods are with us, hopefully a victory to add the gloss to the weekend semi final win. It's a resurrected Leicester City who come to town and despite the fact we haven't [...]

3-5-2 has different paths for Hector and Giroud

There's no time to savour the result from the weekend as Arsenal already have one of the remaining league games left tomorrow evening against a reinvigorated Craig Shakespeare. So it's an Arsène Wenger pre match presser today and that means we'll get an update as to whether he'll stick or twist on the starting XI, [...]

Battle and bottle back for The Arsenal

This season the players have - rightly in my opinion - been chastised for some of their performance and at times the perceived lack of effort they deliver for Arsenal football club. We've seen too many under par performances and that has led to widespread condemnation. So it only seems fair that this morning that [...]
