Team structure over expendable star men like Alexis

By | 2017-09-27T07:26:15+00:00 September 27th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, History, premier league|0 Comments

I wanted to broach a topic today that I sort of touched upon yesterday, relating to both Özil and Alexis and of course, there inevitable departures in either January or more likely May next year.  I think the first of the contract rebels of the modern era was Flamini. I'm sure others will put me [...]

Laca looks ‘Wrighty’, Alexis looks too individual against Baggies

A win to set the week off is always a good thing. A win with a clean sheet is also very delightful. A win I. Which your star striker bags a brace is also something to savour. So on a relatively balmy night in North London yesterday evening, I'm pleased that it's just what was [...]

Possession with a purpose: what’s needed for Arsenal tonight 

By | 2017-09-25T07:37:10+00:00 September 25th, 2017|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

After a weekend in which every other Premier League team got their chance to showcase what they've got in their side, its us and West Brom tonight who face off against each other, in a fixture in which few will surely want in terms of timings.  Let's face it - Monday night football is fun [...]

Playing catch up for Arsenal; Iwobi’s curve

Howdy folks. Whatcha been up to this weekend? You certainly haven't been filling it with Arsenal delight because we're the Monday night crew which, whilst cool because it starts your working week off with some football, is also a little ducky because it means you have to sit through every other team.  And what we [...]

No Mai Tai’s for Theo; Jack needs his body to hold together

Not content with a lie in after Thursday night's squad rotation game against Doncaster, Arsène was back in to London Colney yesterday to give his pre-match presser to those bleary-eyed hacks who had travelled in following their deadlines for copy the night before. First and foremost came the team news and it's a good job [...]

Job done for Arsenal, little more

I wouldn't have described yesterday's victory against Doncaster Rovers as 'thrilling'. Nor would I put it down as 'comprehensive'. It was certainly a win and safe passage to the fourth round against Norwich at The Emirates, but it was hardly a humdinger of a cup tie, was it? As expected Arsène rotated his whole team [...]

Professional performance and plenty of rotation, please, Arsenal

It's the super-awesome-mega-important-one-you-definitely-want-to-win cup tonight! You know the one I mean. They named it after a Thai goat or something. The one where the draw is done in the middle of the Himalayas so that the Asian fans don't have to get up so early, because that's a really important draw for them to see, [...]

Welbz got the Arsenal curse?

By | 2017-09-19T07:57:51+00:00 September 19th, 2017|Arsenal FC, History, injuries, League Cup, premier league|0 Comments

Poor old Welbz.  If what is to be believed from the The Telegraph yesterday, it could mean a month on the sidelines for a player who it's fair to say, has had the most unlucky time with injuries since signing. It's almost as if joining Arsenal condemned a fit player to some kind of injury [...]

Discipline, organisation and positives: Arsenal vs Chelski

Well how about that for a turn up for the books?  Away from home. To Chelski. Game management.  A modern day Arsène Wenger team performance. Sure, it wasn't the victory we craved but hey, there was enough in that 0-0 at Stamford Bridge to suggest that actually when their heads are screwed on, this Arsenal [...]

Press all over the pitch against Chelski, Arsenal

Welcome to the worst day of the season: the Annual Defeat to Chelski-a-thon, in which we all think that surely probability will eventually work in our favour and we might actually get a win, but then we realise that the same fate will befall us that has befallen us many times before.  It's safe to [...]
