Don’t get mad on Sunday Gooners: Unai’s getting rotation right

Happy Easter Saturday to you. I do like Easter Saturday. Despite not being particularly religious, I do - for the sake of the in-laws family - observe the 'no booze' rule on 'Good-but-should-be-called-rubbish Friday' and being up in the North East I always find myself craving a beer. So yesterday was a tough one. But [...]

Arsenal make it a good Friday with professional victory over Napoli

For both of these two legs against Napoli i haven't really felt nervous at all, aside from a quick pang of butterflies in the stomach about two minutes before kick off yesterday, but even that went away after I saw how Arsenal had set up and how Unai has instructed his players to play. In [...]

Unai’s squad management is to be applauded – maybe

Happy Wednesday folks. It's a pre Europa Wednesday and given that we have a massive game against Napoli in about 36 hours from me writing this, I thought I'd be a little more nervous than I am, although I think the first leg is playing a big part of it. Arsenal are a side who [...]

Points first, performance a very far second, against Watford

Life as an Arsenal fan, eh? Before the game we had excitement. The team was left of field as Unai has done to us all season; it was exciting and with Mavropanos in, a midfield including Xhaka and Torreira, with Ramsey providing energy in front of them, this felt perfect for a Watford side who [...]

Watford’s physical approach must be countered

This is a big match day for our season today. Over the weekend we fell down in to sixth and if we suffer back-to-back defeats in the Premier League following the Everton debacle, then it really will start to feel like this run of so called 'easier' games isn't going to go to plan. Mainly [...]

Is Torreira the glue in our midfield?

By |2019-04-14T09:15:29+01:00April 14th, 2019|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, midfield, premier league|0 Comments

So no favaoirs have been done by any teams this week in relation to picking up points from our rivals and that means that yesterday we slipped down to sixth with the Totts on 67 points, Chelski on 66 and United in fifth on 64. We're one behind them on 63 and it just serves [...]

Happy Saturday fellow Gooners. Hoping you're all set to have a good one. I'm off to the south coast for a little weekend away with the Management so as little football as I can possibly muster. I still managed to catch a bit of the Leicester/Newcastle game and of course Leicester - who we're due [...]

Controlled and composed Arsenal do the job against Napoli

That was hella fun last night. There are plenty of people on the socials this morning talking about how we looked to drop a bit in the second half, that it was a bit nervy and I don't know why, but I just had complete confidence that we were going to win last night and [...]

Arsenal can’t defend, so might as well go for goals against Napoli

By |2019-04-11T11:07:48+01:00April 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Europa League, Match Preview, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Howdy all and happy match day to you. I don't know why but I don't feel as nervous about this one as I probably should. With our away form in the league seeing us tank and probably drop out of the top four unless something changes, this game could have far-reaching repercussions on our season, [...]

How do we overcome Arsenal’s psychological issues?

It's all a bit quiet on the Arsenal front today. No game until tomorrow and we have a press conference that will probably take place tonight in which the manager and a player will give us an update ahead of tomorrow nights crucial game against Napoli. The most important bit of news will be who [...]
