As with all things Arsenal, rarely these days do things just 'happen' quickly, so it's probably come as no surprise to any of us that the Mikel Arteta situation continues to rumble along. And like I said yesterday, none of this reflects well on those in the administration side of the football business. That's because [...]

Concerns over Arteta are understandable. But what if…

So it appears we are on the verge of Tricky Micky Arteta re-joining the club as manager, of all of the noise it to be believed, as pretty much every media outlet is reporting it and has been doing so since last night. Here's the thing: I like Mikel Arteta. The noises that come from [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

A win for confidence against Liege

Matchday today means that we have another opportunity for a win and hopefully some sort of momentum building as we hit the busy festive period. The reality of the situation is that unless there is a monumental cock up of epic proportions - a five goal defeat would do it - we are through to [...]

If it’s Ancelotti at Arsenal, he needs to…

By |2019-12-11T07:27:23+00:00December 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Tactics|4 Comments

So Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli last night and immediately Arsenal fans are deciding in which side of the fence they fall with regards to him potentially at the club. Those that are against his signing point to the Bayern era and how the players rebelled against the Italian, those who are for Ancelotti [...]

An earlier start than usual for me, coupled with Sunday night drinking, means that it's a groggy Monday morning blog I'll be compiling for you today. The weather is like my mood when it comes to The Arsenal these days too: pretty foul. It's West Ham away tonight and after seeing the team put in [...]

Nothing Arsenal is fun any more

Do you know what? I'm not sure I even have the energy to muster a full size, normal blog, like I do every morning. I'm genuinely just 'meh' about everything to do with Arsenal at the moment. \Later on I'm going to see some family friends. I'm godfather to the lad of our family friends [...]

Brighton at home – a 100% ‘must win’

Morning folks. Dropping you this match preview in the early hours of Thursday morning, ahead of what feels like a perpetual 'must win' for The Arsenal these days. Well, I've written it in the early hours, so please excuse the fact that there'll be even more typos than normal. Probably won't actually finish it until [...]

Freddie’s insightful presser gives hope ahead of Brighton

As a football fan you always look for the hole in a new situation and before the Norwich game I think we all did, as we backed Freddie, hoping for an instant turnaround. Of course it wasn't to be and yet again we saw some pretty shoddy defending that cost us all three points as [...]

No new Arsenal manager until January

By |2019-12-03T07:45:08+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]
