Arsenal control a sorry West Ham

Well what a result that was for The Arsenal yesterday, eh? It was a performance that had everything: control, goals, returning player narratives, screamers, ole's from the away fans, the lot. If you ask me what the perfect away day looks like, it would be what those Arsenal players delivered at the London Stadium in [...]

Will we see Zinchenko, Jesus, Tomi or Kiwior tomorrow?

Morning folks and welcome to Saturday. We've still got over 24 hours until we rock up at The London Stadium (one of the worst to get in and out of I've ever experienced, I have to say) and yesterday Arteta was doing his usual press conference stuff in the afternoon to give us an insight [...]

Morning folks. Happy Friday - hope you're all good? We did an interesting pod last night with Alan Alger and Anthony Gale (son of Tony Gale, ex-West Ham player), which was a match preview, a bit of discussion over xG and its uses, as well as the over celebration discussion that has been rumbling on [...]

The Arsenal defensive chicken or egg situation

Morning folks and happy Thursday to you and yours. I flicked on the Villa/Chelsea game last night and watched about 20 minutes of it as I was doing other stuff in the house. What a weird two teams those two are, eh? Chelsea, who looked absolutely ridiculous at the weekend at home to Wolves and [...]

Arsenal can bask, but it’s a run of wins that is imperative now

Morning Gooners, we all good? Do you know? I don't think I've basked enough since Sunday. I mentioned it yesterday in the blog but in reality I watched the game, I got home, quickly wolfed down some food, went on the Same Old Arsenal pod to talk about it, then watched Match of the Day, [...]

Morning Gooners - and a happy Monday to you all! It's always a lovely Monday blog to write when the team has won a big game against a close rival to you in the league. Even though the sun isn't shining here in London, if you could see it through the clouds, you'd know that [...]

Well, here we are, ladies and gents. Time to strap ourselves in because this is the big one and this is a test that this Arsenal team simply must pass if it wants to be in contention for the top honours going in to the end of the season. The period over Christmas in which [...]

Is Partey’s time up at The Arsenal?

There was Mikel Arteta's press conference yesterday and whilst there was a flurry of questions that he answered about Liverpool, team news, young players, the transfer window, etc, I think I'll spend the vast bulk of today speaking about Thomas Partey, who Arteta confirmed had a set back in training this last few days and [...]
