About Bendtnersbettercousin

Gooner born in 1982 from Harlow, Essex, with a love for Arsenal that knows. I'm not an AKb, nor am I an 'In Arsene we Rust', but I like to think that I can tip-toe between the two, occasionally veering into both camps.

Pepe’s idiocy costs Arsenal against Leeds

By |2020-11-23T07:59:40+00:00November 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

The only place to start this morning is at the beginning of the second half yesterday against Leeds, because the idiotic actions of Nicolas Pepe and his headbutt to get himself sent off was a pivotal moment that cost Arsenal, or certainly could have done, had we not been able to muster a decent enough [...]

Arteta needs to inject pace into Arsenal attack against Leeds

I believe I have some very real fears and trepidation about today’s game at Elland Road. The preparation the Arsenal players have had in the build up to this hasn’t been ideal, with injuries, COVID and the form of some of our players, plus I have some bad memories of defeats going up there I [...]

Arteta’s not had the luck, but he isn’t letting that get to him

By |2020-11-21T08:41:31+00:00November 21st, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Well here we are, back to the proper football weekend's, which also means some words of wisdom from our young manager. Mikel Arteta had his press conference yesterday and talked about the proposed bust up of Luiz and Ceballos, the international breaks, as well as team news ahead of the weekend as we show down [...]

Spikiness in Arsenal training is good for me

By |2020-11-20T08:53:19+00:00November 20th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Morning folks, how goes it? Hope you're all doing well? The Management has COVID so I'm in isolation until the end of the UK isolation, which kind of sucks because I won't get to do any exercise - something that has been really beneficial for me during this weird ol' year, but hey ho. Them's [...]

A left back problem developing for Arteta for this next week

By |2020-11-19T08:04:08+00:00November 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, injuries, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Another one bites the dust. Yep, there's another Arsenal player who will be missing from the ability to be selected this weekend when we play Leeds on Sunday and that player is Sead Kolasinac, who tested positive for COVID-19 after travelling and playing for Bosnia in this latest round of pointless and utterly stupid international [...]

How Arsenal move the ball quicker from back to front

If ever you wanted an example of footballers not living in the normal world, it comes courtesy of Willian who supposedly if you read some of the stories from yesterday, decided to head off to Dubai during this international break. In normal times that'd be ok if he's been given a few days off but [...]

Elneny’s absence shows reckless internationals; no five sub rules is a DISADVANTAGE to Arsenal

By |2020-11-17T08:40:35+00:00November 17th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Internationals, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Well, it was always going to happen but yesterday it was confirmed: An Arsenal player has contracted COVID-19 and will now need to self isolate for two weeks. Mohammed Elneny is the victim of the virus and once again what this has done is highlight to me at least that these internationals are even worse [...]

Partey, Xhaka and Ceballos – let’s see if that midfield trio can work

By |2020-11-16T08:23:38+00:00November 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Formation, injuries, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Still not a lot going on in the Arsenal world today, well, other than the ladies football in which the Arsenal women drew yesterday. But I've never really been able to get myself 'in' to it to be honest. It's the same with the youth football too. I want players coming through, it is great [...]

Arteta will make changes in his team – he has to

By |2020-11-14T08:02:36+00:00November 14th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Mikel Arteta, premier league|2 Comments

Morning folks and happy Saturday unto thee. I went to bed at 12am last night having taken receipt of a beer machine that allows you to put a can or bottle in a portable tap thing, then pour a draught pint, but unfortunately my body clock does not afford me a lie in these days, [...]

A decision needs to be made on Maitland-Niles

By |2020-11-13T08:00:32+00:00November 13th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Happy Friday y'all. Hope you're doing well. I have to level with you. Even these days, with some form of Arsenal involvement in the England games, I'm not going to rouse myself to actually watching any of a game between England and Ireland that is a friendly with absolutely no real meaning to it. The [...]
