The mass clear out at Arsenal in the summer is astonishing

It's Wednesday, the middle of the week, another three days until we meet Southampton in the FA Cup. So what did I do when I woke up this morning? Something I haven't really done all season: I looked at the league table. It's a bit mental. Usually by February you start to see one or [...]

Arsenal up a second half gear to beat Newcastle

By |2021-01-19T08:31:46+00:00January 19th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

Let's start off today with a good ol' fashioned footballing cliche, eh? How about the one about football being a 'game of two halves? Because that's certainly what was served up by our boys in red and white yesterday and thankfully the latter was better than the former for us fans, resulting in three points, [...]

Arsenal must be quicker in possession against Newcastle

By |2021-01-18T08:15:29+00:00January 18th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

As the saga I spoke about rumbles further on with pictures and the like coming out yesterday early evening, mercifully we have something else to focus on, which is an important game at home to Newcastle United tonight. It's a game that if I'm completely honest with you about, I'm not exactly massively confident about. [...]

Mesut Ozil: it shouldn’t have ended this way

By |2021-01-17T09:23:52+00:00January 17th, 2021|Arsenal FC, contracts, finances, gooners, Gunners, History|1 Comment

Well now, what sort of Arsenal-related news could we possibly talk about, given that they aren't playing until Monday and Arteta already did his presser on Thursday that we had a chin wag about yesterday? Oh, I dunno, how about a certain German playmaker with whom nearly all of the major media outlets confirmed yesterday [...]

Arteta wants a weekend away from Arsenal too

Mikel obviously wanted a weekend without Arsenal as well after that snoozefest on Thursday night, because he did his pre match presser then and yesterday we got the video and transcription on the official site ahead of the game on Monday night against Newcastle. The good news is that Kieran Tierney isn’t going to be [...]

A mid table boring performance from a mid table boring Arsenal

By |2021-01-15T08:05:24+00:00January 15th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Ahh man that was boring to watch last night. I tweeted that Arsenal are an ugly team with a handsome manager and last night's 0-0 snoozefest against Crystal Palace certainly felt like it was backed up by an Arsenal team so lacking in creative spark that you wondered if we were actually watching a pre [...]

Arsenal must crack the tough Crystal Palace nut

By |2021-01-14T08:39:59+00:00January 14th, 2021|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's Crystal Palace at home today and it is the type of game that four or five years ago I'd be pretty confident about us getting a win. But last season and this has pretty much dented any of that "we're The Arsenal, we win this game today" mindset that I had developed over a [...]

Does Arteta need to publicly praise form players more? And what was the Runarsson ‘plan’?

By |2021-01-12T08:11:30+00:00January 12th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly Mikel Arteta held his press conference ahead of the Palace game on Thursday. Normally it is a day or two before the match itself but I wonder if he just wanted to 'get it out of the way' so he could focus on the challenge that Palace provide us this week. After [...]

Elneny to Sabitzer: How Arsenal’s style needs to evolve with player recruitment

By |2021-01-11T08:18:07+00:00January 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, midfield, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Morning folks. Another Monday in lockdown. It's a countdown to the Palace game on Thursday and as you'd probably expect given the game is four days away, which means most people arse still worrying themselves with transfer noises, which I too am not immune to. We've seen the Buendia stuff come and go, there's been [...]
