My mind is clouded on Arteta

Morning folks. There's been a whole additional 24 hours that have elapsed since the pathetic and limp exit to Villareal in the Europa League and I gotta tell you folks, I feel a lot better in my own head, compared to how I have done over the years.  Not about Arsenal and the position they [...]

Villareal and Emery will look to hit Arsenal on the counter

Well folks, this feels like it could be pretty much it tonight, what it all boils down to and should the worst happen this evening and we sh*t the bed against Unai Emery's Villareal then the season is essentially finished in all but name. It feels like last chance saloon for Mikel and his charges [...]

Tierney’s availability the mind game for Emery?

One day to go until the real nerves kick in, eh? And I do mean REALLY kicking in, because it feels like this game has become even more essential in terms of the potential future of Arsenal; another Sliding Doors moment for the whole team, manager and everyone associated. There were even some pretty spurious rumours [...]

Arsenal tick all of the boxes in routine win over Newcastle

I must admit to you that I thoroughly enjoyed that Arsenal game against Newcastle. If you're going to write a script on the perfect match before a big European Cup Semi Final game to prepare, that one yesterday was almost a perfect situation. Resting key players: Check Getting minutes for returning players: Check Feeble opposition: [...]

Arteta should experiment against Newcastle

Before I get into the usual ramblings, have a look at these little beauties from a mate of mine Gav - Arsenal-related beer mats. Kinda funky. There's no update on team news ahead of today's pretty meaningless game away at Newcastle today and given the fact that the club is on a social media blackout [...]

Arsenal-less Saturday’s

Happy Arsenal-less Saturday folks. And it really is an Arsenal-less one this weekend, because the official account and website are off social media - along with a host of other clubs and sports across the globe - to raise awareness for the unacceptable behaviour of a minority of idiots who not only abuse people like [...]

Villareal thoughts: Arteta’s tinkering and Ceballos’ inclusion could cost us

The most positive thing to come from what we witnessed last night was that we are still, somehow, in this tie. That it had to come from a penalty which was, let's face it 'generous' at best, is a real cause for concern and in a semi final of a European competition you really do [...]

Villareal preview: So much narrative swaying against The Arsenal

This is it folks. Crunch time. Game day. But not just any game day. We are here at season-defining game day. Again. Only today will be harder than any of the other season-defining game days we've had so far. For one thing the opposition are better than any other we've faced in the Europa League. [...]
