No case for our defence, but what about Mavropanos?

As is to be expected West Ham did us no favours last night by losing away to Chelski, but with that lot due to play Liverpool and United away, their route to top four is still a tough one. Whether or not it's tougher than ours remains to be seen because quite frankly with our [...]

Arsenal have a psychological problem away that will stop top four hopes

We've got some serious problems psychological in this Arsenal team that Unai Emery still has to overcome I think. Yesterday was the first of a collective of games we've been building up to where our fate is in our own hands. The Newcastle game may have been the first match back after an extended break [...]

Back three to offer more protection against Everton’s pacey front line?

Today begins the tough work as we play the first of what feels like about a billion away games to finish the season. We're on the last stretch, we probably need 12 or 13 points I think and looking at the teams we play today has to be one of those games in which a [...]

Who’s in the bin at Arsenal in the summer?

Morning all. With Unai still not due to speak to the assembled press for another few hours as I write this, I started to think about next season and regardless of whether we secure Champions League football next year or not, who I think will be 'in the bin' in the summer. This list, I [...]

Bernd’s improvement, Arsenal’s inprovement

One day closer to the weekend and therefore one day closer to The Arsenal and if ever there was an example of just how tight and tough the current race for top four is, the fact that we are back down to fourth following the Tiny Totts win last night shows just how much of [...]

Four wins and a draw for Arsenal – but from where?

By |2019-04-03T07:27:05+01:00April 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league, Unai Emery|1 Comment

With Wolves doing us a favour last night and Solskjaer saying they need five wins from six, inevitably the first thing I did this morning as I was brushing my teeth before work was to think "does that mean we only need four and a draw?" If the United Boss is right it puts 76 [...]

Professional Arsenal hitting form at right time against Newcastle

Well I thought that was a thoroughly enjoyable performance last night. It was composed, assured and one of the simplest of three points we'll get this season. On a weekend where a victory could see us get in to the third spot by overcoming the Geordies, it could have been a tricky encounter against a [...]

Expect a cagey affair against Newcastle tonight

The defeat to the Scousers by the Tiny Totts has given us somewhat of an opportunity this evening. Victory sends us two points clear of them and Man United and of ever the Arsenal players needed an incentive this could be it when we play Newcastle at 8pm. I'm certainly not one to wish Liverpool [...]

Arsenal need to find 25 goals between now and the end of this season

Man United's win over Watford and Chelski's inevitable victory over Cardiff today does hit home the importance that each game has and tomorrow we have yet another example of why consistently picking up wins is crucial at this time in the season. I'm by no means counting my chickens but tomorrow night's match against Newcastle [...]

Let’s have Xhaka and Ramsey at the base of midfield on Monday

By |2019-03-30T08:52:18+01:00March 30th, 2019|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

Yesterday after I wrote my blog I had a bit of a think as to who was going to play in central midfield yesterday. Ramsey and Guendouzi was an option but for some reason it just didn't seem 100% right to me. With Torreira out and Xhaka supposedly injured they are the natural successors in [...]
