We're back up and running again today with another Arsenal match as we try to navigate this death run month that is April and it's a trip to The Amex for Arteta's lads in the early evening kick off game. And folks, I gotta tell ya, I think this will be a tough one tonight. [...]

Saka’s return will be timely for Brighton

I went for my afternoon run first thing this morning, which has its benefits because rather than speculate on what Arteta has to say in his press conference today, it's happening literally as I type out today's ramblings. So I have a bity of a real time reaction opportunity this Friday morn, which is novel. [...]

Rotation could be the word of the day for Arsenal, but there’s still a job to do against Luton

We're here at another matchday, as our month of intense football is now well underway, with Luton at home tonight. On paper at least you'd look at our April fixture list and say this is the one in which Arsenal would have the highest odds and should be considered the overwhelming favourites for the three [...]

As expected – the stalemate that suits The Arsenal

As I and many others predicted in the build up to this match, there would be no basketball-style game, leading to goals galore. Instead, this was every bit the chess match, played between two teams who are stylistically even matched and two managers who follow similar footballing philosophies. There was the inevitable chiding online from [...]

Cagey chess match football: City v Arsenal preview

It’s the big one today and, as I suspected but didn’t say, the butterflies and nerves for this game against City later on are starting to kick in. Arsenal travel to Manchester trying to do something we haven’t managed to do in nine previous attempts in all competitions. You have to go back eight years [...]

Arteta is feeling the training ground buzz ahead of the Etihad trip

I never normally watch the opposition match press conference, but given the build up to this massive game tomorrow and given how significant it could impact both City and Arsenal's season, I thought I'd have a little sneak peak at pep's comments in his presser. Obviously I was also intrigued on how he delivered news [...]

Arsenal need to beat the final boss level

It's Good Friday, we've just finished off a bit of a preview pod on the Same Old Arsenal podcast (you can have a look here), we've got ourselves a press conference from Mikel Arteta coming up at some stage today and then he'll give us a low down on where the team is at and [...]

Patiently waiting and hoping for a clean Arsenal bill of health

So, we're done with this frigging pointless friendlies and, as suspected Gareth Southgate kept Declan Rice on the pitch for the full 96 minutes last night. I flicked on and awatched about 10 minutes of the first half as I was cooking to see Pickford have a howler, then I heard about Lewis Dunk's howler, [...]

Saliba slighted, Rice rejoicing – the internationals still rumble on…

Oh Didier....if you're gonna come for Big Bill Saliba, you better swing hard and true, because we Arsenal fans will have his back for sure! Of course I'm sure Deschamps couldn't give a monkeys about us and what we feel, but regardless of that, it does feel a little crass of him to make comments [...]
