Match day returns for The Arsenal and as usual I've got butterflies in all the right places, which must mean it's a tricky away game and the pressure is on. It's doubly on because all of those around us and at the top of the league picked up points. United scraped a victory through a [...]

Laca’s loss is Nelson’s gain – can he deliver?

So, boys and girls, what did we learn from yesterday's pre-match presser with Unai Emery ahead of the travel to Watford on Sunday? Well, for one thing, we're going to be missing Alexandre Lacazette for the game, plus for the rest of September, which also rules him out of that game at Old Trafford in [...]

Returning Arsenal defenders need to cut out individual errors from team

By |2019-09-13T07:50:31+01:00September 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Defence, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Still nothing from Unai on the ol' team update but, with it being Friday and the last weekday available for him to say some words, it'll not doubt come out at some stage today. It's unusual because it's an away game, but for the players and managers who all live around the Cockfosters/London Colney area, [...]

Emery needs to select is midfield three and stick to it

I always love this time of the season. As Lisa Simpson once said about the time after they've been to Church "it's the longest possible time before we have to go again!" And I couldn't echo those sentiments more. International football is boring, dull, slow, plus my choice of allegiances are fixed to a team [...]

Mkhi’s ‘sad’ exit was right for the club and kids

It's still the international break and therefore there is still being football played, in which apparently England did something, but I hold it in as much importance as the next Beyoncé Knowles album. (For the avoidance of doubt, I hate Beyoncé's music) My brain is clearly desperate for its next Arsenal fix though, because last [...]

What type of midfielder is Matteo Guendouzi?

As if there wasn't enough reasons and incentives to get ourselves out of the Europa League, now we've got UEFA stepping in and confirming to Arsenal - which was announced on the official website yesterday - that our away game to Vitoria Setabul is going to take place at 3.50pm in the afternoon in November.

Xhaka’s paternity leave and Wenger’s extended leave from the Emirates

By |2019-09-09T07:44:18+01:00September 9th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, gooners, Gunners, History, Internationals|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to another interminable week of international nonsense before we get to next weekend and the return of the Premier League. What I always find fascinating about these breaks is not so much the football itself, but rather all the speculation that seems to be whipped up as a result of players [...]

Eddie’s fine start and Pepe’s sensible management

Morning folks and welcome to another saturday, sadly one without The Arsenal, but at least we can pour over some Arsenal-related news. That's because Eddie Nketiah bagged himself another goal yesterday for the Under-21 England team against Turkey and I must tell you, despite the fact they are all poachers goals and tap ins, this [...]

Proper Europa League rotation this time for Arsenal?

Yesterday Arsenal confirmed their squad list for the Europa League and whilst mostly we can determine who would be on that list, there were one or two surprises in there, some of which I think are worth talking about today. And they're worth talking about because of how Emery might approach the competition this year. [...]

How do we/should we, utilise Xhaka, if at all?

How on earth is it Thursday already? I tell you what though, I'll take it, because this month has officially been declared "Sh*t September" by yours truly here, on account of the fact that in prep for a trip to the States in October I'm giving up booze, bread, cola, chocolate and crisps, all vices [...]
