Where’s Arsenal’s catalyst?

It's Friday, it's approaching the weekend, and it's awfully quiet out there in Arsenal land.  Too quiet. The kind of quiet that starts it all off. The worry. The fear. "What happens if we go the whole summer having only picked up a left back on a free transfer?" Kind of quiet. True, it's still [...]

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 [...]

Desire to win – take it before it goes

This might be a short one today. Mainly on account that quite simply, I can't really be arsed with Arsenal at the moment, pretty much reflective of the attitude of the players.  The official website is, quite sensibly, keeping schtum and the lead stories are related to the gloats, great, David Rocastle. At a time [...]

Arsenal make me numb

After the game yesterday I felt angry for about four minutes. I was angry and upset about that performance and I was feeling a little ranty. But by five minutes after the game, I was back to myself and I got on with the rest of my day. I didn't bother looking at Sky Sports [...]

Change across more than management a good thing at Arsenal?

Morning. Hope your Wednesday was better than it started and today is better than yesterday. Football certainly hasn't helped of late, so I've been engaging in other activities, like watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and pretending I was seven again. I'll ignore the fact the movie was terrible. It brought me back to my childhood. [...]

Arsenal must counter Liverpool’s high press

This will be a really tough game today. Mark my words. Don't believe anything you read that suggests that Liverpool's woeful 2017 form will give us hope, because I certainly am not and I fully expect them to be more up for it, than ever before. I watched the Liverpool/Tottenham game at Anfield a couple [...]

Ditch your hierarchies, Arsène

Do you know what's strange? In life, my family and particularly The Management, often comment about how easy going I am sometimes. I'm quite happy to let a lot of things - not everything, but a lot - just pass me by without too much stress. I'm quite positive about life in general.  Arsenal is [...]

Just enough Arsenal

Apologies if I can't draw myself up to be too irate about the overall performance yesterday, but if I'm honest with you, all we needed was the win and that's what we got in the end. So now isn't the time to go all football purist and be outraged that we didn't smash Sutton 6-0 [...]

Boring boring Arsenal

I don't even know where to begin this morning. In fact, I almost don't want to begin, because after what I witnessed yesterday the malaise I have over the football club I love and support has almost completely enveloped me. I'm even at the stage where I've thought to myself that whilst the title was [...]

Arsène doesn’t help himself

I'm still struggling to properly rectify the decision-making of the manager this morning, after the debacle that was Tuesday night, but not really because of his team selection.  As I said yesterday, I could kind of understand why Giroud might start, but in hindsight he should have stuck with a pacey front three to unsettle [...]
