Arsenal were poor, but VAR were abysmal, in Newcastle

There is very little to be happy about this morning after that defeat at St James' Park last night. Very little indeed. Firstly, Arsenal simply did not do enough to win this game. Another key cog in our team was taken out pre match with the absence of Martin Odegaard and in his place we [...]

Morning Gooners and happy Monday to you. I was in the Algarve over the weekend and so didn't have much chance to pen any thoughts, but as it was an international weekend that kind of worked out well for me, because Eddie Nketiah first England appearance aside in the last 20 minutes of the friendly [...]

Where should Arsenal hope to be when we reach the halfway point in the league?

Morning fellow Gooners, from a warm basement in the Algarve. Getting myself away with the Management for the weekend to soak up a little bit of sun whilst seeing the parental units. Well, it is the international weekend after all, right? Yesterday I was looking at the fixtures and the next 'block' of games we [...]

Morning fellow Arsenal-supporting humans, how art thee today? It's Thursday, we've made it this far through the international boredom, but there's still another tedious week ahead of us and I for one am hoping it passes by in the blink of an eye. It is nice to keep reliving all of the content and #HotTakes [...]

Arsenal banish Man City hoodoo with superb defensive display

Tis a good morning to be an Arsenal fan today, eh? Yesterday's win over City - our first in the last seventeen attempts dating back to December 2015 when Theo Walcott got his 100th goal for The Arsenal and Matthieu Flamini started along with Joel Campbell - was hardly a 'classic that will go down [...]

Does the England Saka announcement give us cause for optimism?

It's press conference day today and Mikel Arteta will take to the press room at London Colney to give an update on where we are at with our injury problems ahead of the big game against Oil-Funded-Nation-State FC on Sunday, with all eyes and ears being very firmly fixed on the availability of Bukayo Saka [...]

Why do Arsenal concede so many goals at home and not away?

Happy Monday folks - hope we're all fine and dandy? I kicked off a booze free few weeks yesterday (well, technically because of the COVID it was from Tuesday last week, but I'm not counting that just yet) and so I've woken up this morning without a fuzzy head and that, dear friends, is pretty [...]

North London Derby day – the unknown quantity in Ange’s Tottenham

Here we are. The second worst fixture of the football calendar, from my perspective, with the away North London Derby easily being the worst. Despite the fact we have a good record at home, despite the fact some of my best memories are from NLD's of years gone by, I still hate the tension ahead [...]

I had a stinking hangover yesterday after a company all-day conference on Thursday and so wasn't quite in the right frame of mind to do anything, let alone blog, but I'm back and feeling refershed this morning and what a good job too, because there is so much to talk about ahead of the North [...]

Arsenal roll back the years in routine Champions League opener

Well that was like rolling back the years last night, wasn't it? What I mean by that is that it was Arsenal back in the Champions League, the music blaring, the light show, but also, the kind of performance we used to routinely take for granted. That felt like the kind of game that we [...]
