Iiiiiiiiiiit's MATCHDAY! Yep, I'm excited, despite all of my cynicism about the Project Restart, despite the fact we still don't quite have the balance right in midfield (as Mikel alluded to in his press conference yesterday), as well as the fact that we have a mountain of injuries already. I'm still so excited to see [...]

Willian could mean a formation change for Arsenal, but Zaha and Partey might not be in it

Howdy y'all and welcome to another post season Monday, although Mother Nature has seen fit to deliver what feels like holiday weather in the UK, without the holiday to go with it unfortunately. You'll never here me complaining though - I love the warmth and would gladly have it like this every day of the [...]

The ‘Ainsley or cash’ conundrum Arsenal and Arteta face

By |2020-08-07T08:44:18+01:00August 7th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, Defence, finances, Mikel Arteta, Transfers|1 Comment

Morning folks and welcome to another Friday. I was going to say 'Lockdown Friday' but I don't think we're still in Lockdown, are we? I don't know exactly when it changed, it seemed to seep into whatever this hybrid between Lockdown and normality is, but anyway, happy 'Whatever it is' to you and your kin. [...]

I see Willian logic, but I’m not 100% behind it

Morning folks and welcome to another post-FA Cup final victory day. It really is rather blissful and I think i'm going to see if I can continue to ride the crest of this particular wave for as long as possible. If it can take me well into the weekend then that'd be just grand. There's [...]

The FA Cup win as the positive ‘sliding door’ moment we needed

By |2020-08-03T08:01:04+01:00August 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

I spent intermittent moments of yesterday just smiling to myself. If the Cup final of 2019 cut deep and was a wound that took long to heal, this weekend's victory in the FA Cup helped to stitch up some of that wound. It was like the lollipop you got at the doctors when you were [...]

Nothing silly in the FA Cup Final today, Arsenal

By |2020-08-01T10:39:57+01:00August 1st, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

It’s cup final day and I am a very nervous man. Today’s game isn’t just the last game of the season, it isn’t just about a shiny silver trinket, it is also a financially and footballisticly significant crossroads the club finds itself in. I so desperately want us to win the FA Cup today. But [...]

Emi or Bernd? Either way Arsenal should be ruthless this summer

By |2020-07-31T08:56:24+01:00July 31st, 2020|Arsenal, Defence, finances, Mikel Arteta, Transfers|0 Comments

I don't really know in which direction to go with for today's Friday musings. I feel like it's a little to early to go full match preview and start talking about the game tomorrow and, as I've already talked about how I'm feeling and how nervous I am, as well as how many weird nervous [...]

Holding’s dreadlocks to help win the FA Cup for Arsenal?

T-minus 57 hours and counting from the FA Cup Final as I type out today's Arsenal-related nonsense and I have to say I feel just as nervous as I have done all week. As I've already said on a podcast and the blog, this could all go very well or very bad and mentally I'm [...]

Are we not allowed nice things as Arsenal fans?

Well if that wasn't the crappy Yin to last weekend's fantastic Yang... Are we not allowed to have nice things? Are we not allowed to bask in the glory of a really resolute and fantastic performance? Because it feels like it with this Arsenal side. As brilliant as they were against Man City, yesterday they were as [...]

Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]
