Arsenal get shell-shocked in Portugal

That was a tough one to take in the end and I don't think I'm the only Arsenal fan that feels a little shell shocked by the way we lost that game away to Porto last night in the Champions League. Like, I'm not even angry or ready to pile in on the team, I'm [...]

Arteta will stick to the winning formation against Porto

It's Champions League match day and it's an away day in Porto for the travelling Gooners who will be soaking up some sun and some nice Douro reds in Portugal's second city, I'm sure. I'm off to Porto in the summer and I have to say I have a lot of jealousy right now that [...]

Can you change a winning side? Should you?

There's little time for basking this week, as Champions League is back on the menu and tomorrow night Arsenal take to the pitch in the first of our two-legged tie against Porto for a spot in the quarter final. It's an old-familiar foe for us; during the consistency years of always finishing fourth under Wenger, [...]

Arsenal’s management of minutes could be vital in the next few weeks

It was nice having a Sunday yesterday in which the results of the football didn't really matter. Having done our business on the Saturday and also seeing City and the Scum drop points, it was only Liverpool who got a result that we wouldn't class as delicious and juicy, so I spent my day enjoying [...]

Arsenal leave another side with claret on the decks

Well this is all getting rather fun at the moment, isn't it? Arsenal romped to yet another hammering of an opponent and much like last weekend it was a claret and blue clad side who fell to our boys in fluorescent yellow. Arteta had spoken about the return of some players from injury in his [...]

Positive news on returning players for Arteta – some rotation against Burnley?

Matchday it is and it's a chance to keep pace with Liverpool and City. City play in the evening, Liverpool play at lunchtime and given the two opponents they have, I'm not expecting us to have anything beneficial come out of their two games, so we simply must do the business against Burnley in the [...]

A look at Arsenal’s weekend opponents: Burnley

Happy Friday folks! Hope you've had yourself a decent enough week? We're approaching the weekend showdown with Burnley and the two James' - Messieurs Cook and Johnstone - were previewing the show last night on the Same Old Arsenal podcast which you can have a watch/listen to here if you're that way inclined. For me [...]

Arsenal’s rotational attackers could lead to the promised land

Howdy peeps, hope we're all doing well on this Thursday ahead of a trip to Turf Moor for one of those most precious of things: A 3pm kick off. Obviously I prefer it when it's at home, but these days with the ability to 'find ways' to watch or listen to football anywhere, it's less [...]

Arsenal have scored more and conceded less than last season – so what’s different?

I saw a stat this morning that Arsenal have now scored more goals and conceded less goals than at the 24 game point in the Premier League this season compared to last season. Which feels crazy and almost as if it's not true, given how we were five points better off last season. At that [...]

Free kicks and small details – can that be Arsenal’s difference maker?

Do you know what's funny? This time last week my mind was full of positivity and basking in the glow of a post-Liverpool victory. That win felt massive, it felt huge, because we'd beaten a team who were on a fantastic run and who many thought that a draw would be alright for The Arsenal. [...]
