Things killing the enjoyment of football; Everton match preview

I thought Arsene's presser was more interesting than a lot of his pressers that he's done in the recent past. He brought quite a few interesting topics of conversation that it's really hard to disagree with so before I go into today's match preview I think I want to delve into a couple of things [...]

Reconciling Arsenal results with transfers

Happy Friday to you and unto your kin. I hope you are well. I am still wrestling with my emotions from an Arsenal front if I'm honest. That's because I'm trying to reconcile the rapidly deteriorating football quality with the injection-in-arm adrenaline boost of signing one of the world's strikers, followed by the confirmation on [...]

The Great Arsenal Cull of 2018

The last Arsenal 'shake up' occurred after the abomination of a defeat to United back in 2011, when Arsène finally admitted in August that the team needed a heck of an overhaul to even get close to competing for top four that he brought in Big Per, Arteta, Benayoun and Andre Santos as the window [...]

Swansea away: we used to be beautifully flawed, now we’re just flawed

I was going to start today by saying something like "where do I even start?" but this morning after yet another pathetic Arsenal display - the type of away display performance we've seen all season from this ailing team - I think I'll just throw up some of the utterly embarrassing stats that I've seen [...]

Swansea preview: desperate for an early goal

The build up to tonight's league encounter with Swansea may be dominated by a certain player coming in from Dortmund and a certain handsome Arsenal player being an option for that most horrid of clubs Chelski, but I'm preferring to focus on the reason we are here today, which is the stuff that's played on [...]

The waiting game: Aubameyang

Sometimes football can be as predictable as TV soap operas can't it? Particularly football's equivalent of the gutter trash storylines, which are usually the most sleazy in January and the summer months. So in what is this winters latest plot we saw the development late last night that most of us must have expected following [...]

Clever Dortmund put it all on Arsenal and Ivan

I suspected there might be a little bit of noise one way or the other yesterday - with regards to the Aubameyang situation - especially as Dortmund we're playing Freiburg. The first bit of noise came from the team selection and with Auba in from the start it caused some to go into overdrive panic [...]

Lacazette to relish Mkhi and Ozil behind him?

Howdy all and welcome to a mid season Saturday with absolutely no prospect of Arsenal on the horizon and actually, having said yesterday that I'm kind of ok with it given we're going to Wembley, I'd still rather it was us away to Hull and not Forest. That kind of sucks. But what's done is [...]

Wembley date, softens the FA cup exit; Auba be done before Swansea?

With no game this weekend due to the acrimonious exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Nottingham Forest, this weekend represents a moment in time whereby Arsenal fans are forced to look on in bittnerness as the other top clubs in England waltz through to the fifth round, having been handed easy ties [...]

Tactical shift sees Arsenal through to Wembley

In the cold light of the new day, I can say with a degree of comfort that in the end, that was an enjoyable football match. It didn't start that well though, did it? I mean I don't really know what Arsène was thinking about when he decided to opt for four at the back [...]
