Tuesday morning and the world is calm, serene, because Arsenal won and the gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands whilst looking at the possible outcomes for these final games remains unclear. It feels like there might be one, maybe even two, more twists and swings in momentum before this season is out. And I [...]

Sliding doors moment for Arsenal against United

By |2022-04-24T08:37:22+01:00April 24th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

There was a very clear 'sliding doors' moment in our victory against Man United yesterday. Clear to me, anyway. As Bruno Fernandes stepped up to take United's penalty after a silly handball by Tavares in the second half, it felt like United had the momentum, they were pinning us back and if they scored that [...]

Man United preview: Arsenal should not underestimate the danger

There should not be a single Arsenal player, member of the coaching staff, or fan, that underestimates the difficulty of today's home game against Man United this lunchtime. This will be a tough game, make no mistake. Firstly, United will be hurting after the absolute tonking they got at Liverpool. That's a fixture those lot [...]

Formations and team sheets mean nothing any more

Morning Gooners and happy Friday bestowed unto thee. I'm still feeling good about The Arsenal after that surprise win on Wednesday night. It was everything you'd hope from the Arsenal team but what I've been repeating in my mind is the tactical approach by Arteta and how he got it so spot on. I find [...]

Lacazette’s lacka output won’t secure him any big move

Looks like Alexandre Lacazette has been keeping his eyes open and options available for his next move, having spoken to French TV, who yesterday released his comments about having multiple offers from teams and also wanting to play for a Champions League club. I'm sure you do Alex, I'm sure you do. But let's not [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems stare us all in the face against Southampton

Yesterday's defeat was painful in so many ways. It was painful because the Scum had given us an opportunity to draw level and we didn't take it. Its was painful because it was obvious to see that Southampton were not very good. It was painful because we picked the right starting line up in my [...]

Arsenal must change the approach and personnel to counter Southampton’s high press

I had a nervousness before the Crustal Palace game that belied the form that Arsenal had going in to it. I was nervous ahead of the Brighton game that belied the terrible form Brighton were in. I am nervous ahead of this game which belies the fact Southampton took an absolute pasting last weekend and [...]

Praying for Arteta’s admission of errors

There was no press conference yesterday so it'll mean we'll get to hear from Mikel Arteta today and although today is titled 'Good Friday' in the Christin calendar, I'm not expecting any 'good' news from the injury front. I suspect it'll simply be that the players that are injured are still injured, that we have [...]

Why do I now fear Arteta’s selection approach?

I chose my words to the title for today's musings quite carefully here. I know there are people that are convinced that Arteta is, from a tactical perspective, a man who knows his onions and he has shown that at times this season. I also know that there are a proportion - a small one [...]
