Friday's are always better when you have some good news to brighten your day, or when you have something exciting going on at the weekend, eh? For me it's a bit of both, actually, as I'm off in to London for a 40th birthday party tomorrow evening which will be fun. But most important of [...]

Watford to mirror Arsenal’s formation, so we must step up

This'll be a quick one today as I'm off to have a pre match meal with the family in Islington before the old man and I make our way to the game. Watford at home in the old days - like six or seven years ago - would be one in which you'd be wondering [...]

We need Xhaka for January and Tierney for Liverpool next week

By |2021-11-05T07:37:04+00:00November 5th, 2021|analysis, Arsenal, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Well the good news appears to be that the squad injury update ahead of the game against Watford on Sunday is positive. Only Kieran Tierney and Granit Xhaka remain doubts. For Xhaka the main worry is in the wording from the clubs medical team that he is expected to be in full training in the [...]

Arteta’s margins are too fine when we don’t score enough goals

Last night I had a weird ol' dream. I was back in my old season ticket seat at Highbury in the North Bank and time had rewound and the team were now allowed to play back in the old stadium again. Which is weird because a) that would take some serious engineering work needed, not [...]

No Partey MUST mean we Sambi against Brentford

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday n’all that jazz. Hope you and yours are doing fine. We’re at T-minus ten days and counting until the kick of to the Premier League season and I don’t know about you, but I feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation about the season ahead. What isn’t helping is that it [...]

Pepe, ‘The Smith’ and Auba – post Rangers musings on three key players

By |2021-07-19T08:11:02+01:00July 19th, 2021|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Mikel Arteta, pre season|1 Comment

I was in no fit state yesterday to do anything other than sit in the sun and melt a bit, so didn't pen any post Rangers thoughts and, given that it's a Monday and there isn't really any massive breaking news from yesterday, I thought i'd jot down some musings from the game that I [...]

Tierney’s availability the mind game for Emery?

One day to go until the real nerves kick in, eh? And I do mean REALLY kicking in, because it feels like this game has become even more essential in terms of the potential future of Arsenal; another Sliding Doors moment for the whole team, manager and everyone associated. There were even some pretty spurious rumours [...]

Raul’s exit can mean a new, positive, era at Arsenal

Wellety, wellety, wellety. Yesterday I woke up a little hungover round a friends house, grabbed myself some bacon and eggs, then started planning the rest of the day for a bit of a bar crawl and some Po’ Boys in Kingston at the end. What I didn’t expect was to be glued to my phone [...]

Tough to watch at times, but Arteta is building something – post Sheffield United thoughts

I like the world a lot more when Arsenal do the winning. It is way more fun. And even though yesterday's game - like the Southampton game - had plenty of parts that weren't a lot of fun to watch at times, I have to say the satisfaction by the end was very enjoyable. It's [...]

Projecting Arsenal’s points tally at the halfway stage in the season

By |2019-12-23T10:06:35+00:00December 23rd, 2019|analysis, Arsenal FC, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Seeing results unfold like yesterday, with United losing away to Watford and then the Tomy Totts at home to Chelski, really does make me irritable that we've fluffed this season up so much. If we'd have just converted three of our eight draws this season into wins, we'd be within just three points of Chelski [...]
