Emery says something, which isn’t anything; back to basics Arsenal

After a day in which Unai Emery has had a press conference ahead of a game I like to have a little read over his comments on the official website to see if there's anything that I can glean that gives an insight in to how the team will set up in the upcoming match. [...]

Unai’s squad management is to be applauded – maybe

Happy Wednesday folks. It's a pre Europa Wednesday and given that we have a massive game against Napoli in about 36 hours from me writing this, I thought I'd be a little more nervous than I am, although I think the first leg is playing a big part of it. Arsenal are a side who [...]

Controlled and composed Arsenal do the job against Napoli

That was hella fun last night. There are plenty of people on the socials this morning talking about how we looked to drop a bit in the second half, that it was a bit nervy and I don't know why, but I just had complete confidence that we were going to win last night and [...]

How do we overcome Arsenal’s psychological issues?

It's all a bit quiet on the Arsenal front today. No game until tomorrow and we have a press conference that will probably take place tonight in which the manager and a player will give us an update ahead of tomorrow nights crucial game against Napoli. The most important bit of news will be who [...]

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 [...]

Ozil’s return: he hasn’t changed THAT much guys

By |2019-04-06T09:36:40+01:00April 6th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, premier league, press conference, Unai Emery|2 Comments

So we had some words from Unai yesterday and he gave us an update on availability ahead of Sunday's lunchtime kick off against Everton. Torreira is still suspended for doing less than Danny Rose did against Bernd Leno in the same game, whilst Xhaka and Koscielny are the main worries ahead of the trip up [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Friendlies Schmendlies, but who plays in Arsenal’s midfield?

Can I admit something to you? I really couldn't give a monkeys about the pre season friendly games. Sorry, but there, I said it. I mean it's not that I don't appreciate their value to fans that don't get to see The Arsenal every odd week like I do, but because I do and because [...]
