Morning all and welcome to Friday. Hope you're all feeling good? I had to take the first of my lateral flow 'countdown to Christmas' tests this morning. I didn't go to West Ham on Wednesday because I didn't want to risk it, plus the fact I was in the Tollington on Saturday and it was [...]

The Arteta/Auba situation needs a quick and quiet resolution

Last night some friends we were due to have over for a slap up Christmas meal before we are all off to see our families, unfortunately got a positive test result on their lateral flow tests, which means we've had to cancel a weekend of fun and frivolity at our place. I mention this in [...]

The Aubameyang problem rears its head ahead of Southampton game

It's match day and whilst the focus should be on who are the best and fittest players available to be selected today to try to get us back on track and winning at home to Southampton, unfortunately we are once again dealing with some problems in the Arsenal camp, or at least what looks like [...]

Arteta’s decision making post-international break leave a lot to be desired

I won't dwell on the double standards that got dealt by the Premier League on match postponements yesterday. We know that what happened at the start of the season is now wrong, they know it was wrong, we move on. The hope is just that the Scum's fixture congestion really piles up on them next [...]

What ‘process’ are we trusting again, Arsenal?

Last night's shambolic Arsenal performance was a massive alarm bell for me. It was an appalling indictment of all the things Arteta and his Arsenal team have got wrong and although we went through a good run of form before the last international break, that is looking more and more like an outlier in the [...]

Is Ragnick’s absence really an advantage for Arsenal?

Ahh December the first. The first day of the month in which I officially now go crazy by listening to Christmas music all of the time, over-indulging by basically being out drinking most evenings, watching Christmas movies whenever I can and overloading my company Microsoft Teams chat with gifs related to the festive season. But [...]

Arsenal: A true meritocracy?

Very rarely do I write my blog title each day before I actually start typing my usual daily thoughts. Normally I just spill out on to the virtual page a selection of what I'm thinking about, then I try to put some kind of link between the headline and the waffle I've just written. But [...]

More time needed for both Wenger and Arsenal

Wednesday morning, the internal break hasn't even kicked off and I'm already bored of it. It's funny because when we lose I view the internationals as either a painfully slow creepy death in terms of football (i.e. you can't get 'back on the wagon' with a result), or a momentum killer (i.e. what happens if [...]

Arteta still learning

I watched the 30 minute video on Mikel Arteta this morning. He talked a lot about 'unity' and his time so far as he approaches 100 games tomorrow and I thought it was a nice piece from Amy Lawrence who interviewed him. I'm losing track about the number of times I've said how strong his [...]
