You know when you have those dreams that feel so real, that you wake up in the morning, then you feel an emotion based on that dream that is really strong? It could be positive or negative. Well, I had an Arsenal one of those last night, about the League Cup game against Liverpool. Unfortunately [...]

So now we know...Arsenal's hand has been played and the extent to which we have absentees has been laid bare, as the club confirmed yesterday afternoon that they've applied to the Premier League for a postponement of the match on Sunday against The Scum. Mikel Arteta spoke to the Arsenal website in the morning and [...]

It's game day and I don't think I've ever been as in the dark over how Arsenal might line up tonight for the semi final of the League Cup, as I have for this evenings game against Victim FC/Cheat FC, given our current problems. Question marks are hanging over whether Granit Xhaka has come out [...]

Morning all and welcome to Tuesday. Now, I feel like I've gone on a little bit about the League Cup situation and the postponement lately, so after today I am hoping that I don't bother to bring it up unless talking about the actual football context, but I do feel compelled to do a little [...]

For the second time in four years Arsenal travelled to the City Ground to play Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup and for the second time in four years Arsenal's FA Cup run was halted as quickly as it began in ignominious fashion as we were knocked out to a [...]

Before I start talking about the press conference and some of the more interesting parts of it for me yesterday, I thought I'd just mention Arsenal's campaign against knife crime that was released yesterday, with a video and also confirmation that Arsenal will wear an all white kit for the game against Nottingham Forest in [...]

How does Arteta rotate in the next 10 days and what should we do about Lacazette?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday. Been a long ol' slog this week, I have to say, so has it been the same for you? Have you just jumped straight back in to the swing of work or have you counted down until the weekend like me? What hasn't helped was the lack of football [...]

Arteta’s COVID has a big impact in a game of fine margins

By |2021-12-30T08:48:01+00:00December 30th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

There's no place to start today other than our manager Mikel Arteta, who the club confirmed yesterday contracted COVID for the second time in just under two years, meaning he is now in isolation and will not be on the bench for the game against Man City on New Years Day. I think this is [...]

Arsenal doing the job; confidence soaring against Norwich

Some days writing about The Arsenal feels like a proper chore. I've been - broadly speaking - writing about Arsenal for 13 years and so it has become habitual, which means I really do have to drag my carcass to the laptop and at this time of the year with over-indulgence a daily occurrence, it [...]

Arteta’s balancing act for Christmas

So it seems we are now playing the waiting game when it comes to our Boxing Day fixture. Two games were called off yesterday, including Wolves’ match against Leeds and that means Wolves will have had a full nine days rest between their 0-0 draw against Chelski on 19th and when they play us. Hardly [...]
