Boring Arsenal fold at Watford

As soon as the last gasp winner was thrashed home by Tom Cleverly to give Watford their first win at home against us in donkeys years, I switched off the TV, went in to the kitchen and finished making food. I then had a thoroughly enjoyable evening where football wasn't the topic of conversation for [...]

Arsenal bring back the fun in Borisov

Well I must say I thoroughly enjoyed parts of yesterday's game. I say 'parts' because the ridiculous nature of the games being played at 6pm in away ties means that I was just finishing work as the match kicks off. I can also assure you that attempting to watch the game whilst hurtling along a [...]

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 [...]

The Arsenal contract mess

I was kind of liking the Arsenal quiet zone that had existed whilst all of the players were away on international duty. It was like an oasis of calm amidst the gnashing of teeth on all sides at the moment. The silence wasn't deafening, it was bliss, and I took advantage to have a nice [...]

Arsenal and I get snookered too easily

Morning folks. Hope you're all feeling decent enough after a pretty sloppy defeat on Saturday. That's the best adjective I can think of this morning because it just all feels like it was a bit sloppy.  Sloppy by Xhaka in another poor pass, sloppy by both midfielders to give so much space once they'd lost [...]

Style change in Arsenal attack probably means a Giroud exit

It's the Friday calm before the 'storm' ahead of another pre season tour game tomorrow against that horrible lot from West London tomorrow. Like we didn't see enough of them last season. Now we have to deal with them in the summer too. And their fans will be extra buoyed by the Morata signing, which [...]

Who gets binned off from Arsenal’s first team?

Yesterday I was chatting to a few peeps online about Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and how I'd seen a video and he looked ace. I also said I wouldn't mind him at Arsenal by the looks of him. He looks like he has that drive in midfield. The ability to travel quickly and with [...]

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 [...]
