Morning folks. Dropping you this match preview in the early hours of Thursday morning, ahead of what feels like a perpetual 'must win' for The Arsenal these days. Well, I've written it in the early hours, so please excuse the fact that there'll be even more typos than normal. Probably won't actually finish it until [...]

Freddie’s insightful presser gives hope ahead of Brighton

As a football fan you always look for the hole in a new situation and before the Norwich game I think we all did, as we backed Freddie, hoping for an instant turnaround. Of course it wasn't to be and yet again we saw some pretty shoddy defending that cost us all three points as [...]

No new Arsenal manager until January

By |2019-12-03T07:45:08+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]

Arsenal’s worst five players of the Premier League era?

By |2019-12-02T21:43:26+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, History|2 Comments

Arsenal have been blessed with a dazzling array of world-class talent since the Premier League era began in 1992. Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Santi Cazorla, Tony Adams and Sol Campbell are among the titans of the game to ply their trade at Highbury and The Emirates. Yet we have also been [...]

Premier League campaign over with another draw

There's quite a big caveat in the analysis of yesterday's draw away to Norwich. That caveat is that Freddie Ljungberg has had barely a few hours inputting his ideas into this set of players. So perhaps yesterday's performance still bore the hallmarks of Emery's Arsenal. The caveat that Freddie has had such little time is [...]

Freddie’s Arsenal to be freed against Norwich?

By |2019-12-01T08:42:53+00:00December 1st, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Happy match day folks. And it's a match day in which there exists much more optimism and hope as a result of a new man picking the team than we've had for some time. It's Freddie's Arsenal now and that means anything could happen today. Which is exciting. We could get a total change of [...]

Emery’s time is up. But other questions remain.

It's finally happened. Yesterday morning Unai arrived at the training ground to prepare for the Norwich game this weekend and he didn't even get to put the cones out. By the time the first ball was kicked at London Colney he and his Spanish staff had been told that their services were no longer required [...]

More evidence of Arsenal’s failing leadership – Frankfurt defeat at home

Well now kids, how many of you could have predicted that an average, mid-table team from Germany, who have had patchy form, with no "official" supporters in the stadium (although we know they were there), would pick up three points against Unai Emery's shambolic Arsenal team? Just about everybody I reckon. This team is done. [...]

An empty Arsenal stadium to see some fun against Frankfurt tonight?

Have you ever felt so 'Meh' about a game in your life? Probably. There's games towards the end of the season when there's nothing left to play for that feel very pointless and although this match tonight has something riding on it - Europa League qualification to the k computer phase - it's hard to [...]
