There are some universal truths in life: death, taxes and Burnley fans booing something an opposition player does even though he was in fact probably fouled. And Burnley's fans are the booiest fans you'll ever see. If there was a sweepstake on the first minute at which the Burnley fans would boo Arsenal today, I [...]

Is Arsenal’s absence in Europe really giving us much of an advantage?

Morning folks. How is it Thursday already? Before you know it we'll be staring down the barrel of a trip to Clobbermeister Central, aka Burnley Football Club, who with each week seem to be appearing on my timeline with 'tackles' that are half taking off the feet or legs of their opponents. I look forward [...]

Arsenal’s green shoots need to start today against Norwich

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

How can Arsenal get close to this ‘New Top Four’?

Morning y’all, hope y’all are fine and dandy and living your best lives on this Tuesday morn? It was over a week of sun in the south of Portugal for me and although I had access to my computer and the internet, I’ll be completely honest with you, I just couldn’t be bothered with it [...]

Arteta bright-eyed and batting off Aubameyang speculation

No messing around from Arteta yesterday, was there? What I mean by that was he dropped a press conference in the morning following what will have been a late night on the Wednesday. I left pretty much after the final whistle on Wednesday and I got home at half 12, so they must have got [...]

Confidence is currency at Arsenal as big hitters star against West Brom

Football is hella fun when you win football matches. And score goals. Lots of goals. And last night we did just that. A game in which all six goals came from The Arsenal and in which some vital confidence will have been restored for some of those players. I get it though. I get the [...]

Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Back at The Arsenal, back with the ‘fear’ – Chelski preview

I can't say I'm overly confident about today's match if I'm completely honest with you. Aubameyang aside, this will be the same side that looked so lifeless and defensively fragile as the one that started the season against Brentford, only this time, we're playing a team that has just started the season with a comprehensive [...]

Does the COVID excuse wash for Arteta?

Martin Odegaard officially confirmed yesterday, Aaron Ramsdale also confirmed and with that, they instantly get my full backing and hope that we succeed with them in the short, medium and long term. We can all have questions over the signings but now they are here you have to be happy that they are and I [...]

The media bashing on Odegaard is because Arsenal are a big club

If there's one thing that is sure to brighten up a day, it is a shiny new signing, so today we're hoping there's one to speak of and I suspect there will be. Apparently Odegaard had his medical yesterday and after that happens there's usually some pictures and a video made up, so I wonder [...]
