So, we have ourselves an enforced two week hiatus from The Arsenal, as yesterday the Premier League confirmed that the league will shut down until 4th April. It’s an admission of just how serious the Coronavirus is from a contagious point of view and I don’t think there are many people out there who would [...]

The footballing world needs to shut down after Arteta contracts Covid-19

Morning folks, brought to you today from the office in my house, as my business took the pre-emptive measure yesterday to have everybody home-based for the foreseeable future. It makes sense, but having worked in London for many years and being in the office yesterday, I can tell you that there was not a lot [...]

Arteta’s impressive presser breathes hope for City away

As we all suspected it was a press conference day yesterday and, whilst I still don’t think we’ll be getting anything from the game on Wednesday night, Arteta’s convictions and the way he articulated himself in the press conference, had me thinking that maybe...just maybe...he has some kind of blueprint for success. It’s unlikely because [...]

Auba’s contract length was wrong; why signing Willian doesn’t make sense

If Saturday’s results - including The Arsenal’s - were a positive day for us, then yesterday’s were the opposite, as Everton rolled over and let Chelski blow raspberries on their bellies, whilst Man City played the possession-based game of how to be toothless against A United side who had their number early on in the [...]

Torreira and his flesh wound; Arteta and his injury woes

We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

Will the Man City fixture reschedule derail Arsenal’s momentum?

Now I’m not going to go all obsessive on this subject, believe me, but having witnessed Liverpool get knocked out of the FA Cup to Chelski I couldn’t help but smile. That’s because there’s been a lot of these comparisons with Arsenal’s invincibles since the weekend and there’s plenty of salty scousers who have been [...]

Ring the changes tonight, Arsenal: let’s see some of the future

It’s another Monday match day for us and it’s another silver trinket that we’re fighting for at the end of the road, as we take the trip to Fratyon Park to face a Portsmouth side who will be no mugs tonight I’m sure. Portsmouth may be a couple of divisions down from us in League [...]

Arteta needs to pick us all up

After the game on Thursday Arteta said it’s his job to pick up the players form the crushing feeling of a last second goal in extra time. But actually the man now has the weight of an entire club - including the fan base - with which to lift the mood. It’s strange though. We’re [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]
