Yo folks, hope all is well? I’m groggy this morning. I have been off the booze for a few weeks so I could drop a few pounds in weight, but last night The Management and I just felt like having a few glasses, so an entire bottle of Chianti later and I’m waking up this [...]

Hang on a minute…’Gritty Arsenal grind out 1-0 win away’???

Morning folks. It feels weird this morning. It feels very weird. We won, which is good. We won back-to-back games, which is also good. But we also did it in a style and approach that was resolute, dogged and whilst not always pretty on the eye, it did the job. Arsenal 'getting the job done'. [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

City future means nothing to Arsenal; Arteta planning all the variables

The big story of yesterday obviously doesn't include The Arsenal, but as always, when you hear a story the likes of the City one and the magnitude of it you start to apply your own thoughts relating to your own club. My first thoughts were "is Champions League now more attainable if fifth place gets [...]

Auba adds to Emery damnation; Smith-Rowe groomed as Özil replacement?

Still nothing really meaty from the club ahead of the weekend's fixture with Newcastle, but that's to be expected give that it's Thursday, as well as the fact it's a home game. Arsène liked to do easy on a Friday, being Spanish Unai preferred them later on in the day, but Arteta has so many [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over Emery, Gooners, he’s not worth it

With the Arsenal players all out in Dubai talking up how much more fun, enjoyable and together they all are under Arteta compared to Emery, it appears the Spaniard has decided that he will not go quietly into that sweet night, and has been talking with increased frequency on his time at the club. He's [...]

Fostering unity at The Arsenal

I spent most of yesterday hanging and most of Saturday drinking red wine and eating red meat and given there wasn't any Arsenal to think about, it didn't really feel worthwhile blogging about what's going on. Because let's face it; there isn't really anything. I don't count players posting pictures of themselves training as news, [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems aren’t the result of defensive stability

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday and all that jazz. I'm working from home today - benefits of a flexible company - and I've decided that I need a bit of fresh air in the morning. Only the fresh air of London isn't actually that fresh, plus it's pretty cold, so all-in-all it's not as great an [...]

Boring Burnley, boring Arsenal, boring draws and a boring Premier League

By |2020-02-03T11:41:22+00:00February 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

well there are some things in life that feel as certain as death and taxes and, right now, Arsenal drawing and Burnley fans booing absolutely anything they could possibly muster are such things. Yesterday's 0-0 was our 13th in a season that has seen us only lose six games, but only win six and these [...]

The dominant Arsenal kids do the business in Bournemouth

I wondered what type of Arsenal we'd get for yesterday evening's FA Cup fourth round away tie to Bournemouth. On the GT Radio show last night I missed that each match had played out very differently so far: One game in which we'd not taken our chances and were frustrated (Bournemouth away in the league) [...]
