Mikel obviously wanted a weekend without Arsenal as well after that snoozefest on Thursday night, because he did his pre match presser then and yesterday we got the video and transcription on the official site ahead of the game on Monday night against Newcastle. The good news is that Kieran Tierney isn’t going to be [...]

A mid table boring performance from a mid table boring Arsenal

Ahh man that was boring to watch last night. I tweeted that Arsenal are an ugly team with a handsome manager and last night's 0-0 snoozefest against Crystal Palace certainly felt like it was backed up by an Arsenal team so lacking in creative spark that you wondered if we were actually watching a pre [...]

Arsenal must crack the tough Crystal Palace nut

By |2021-01-14T08:39:59+00:00January 14th, 2021|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's Crystal Palace at home today and it is the type of game that four or five years ago I'd be pretty confident about us getting a win. But last season and this has pretty much dented any of that "we're The Arsenal, we win this game today" mindset that I had developed over a [...]

Smith-Rowe and Tierney the difference makers against Newcastle in the cup

By |2021-01-10T09:30:30+00:00January 10th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Review|0 Comments

A win is a win is a win. Am I right? Arsenal got that win - their fourth in a row - courtesy of a superb Emile Smith-Rowe finish and then a much needed Aubameyang goal in extra time, but whilst we can all agree that was a laboured performance last night, what I think [...]

How much does Arteta rotate Arsenal for tonight’s FA Cup game against Newcastle?

It's a little bit of a later one from me today, on account of a host of jobs i've had to do, but just before I pop out for a run I thought I'd pen some musings because it is FA Cup third round day and we've got ourselves a 5.30pm kick off on BBC [...]

Dreaming of 97/98? Don’t get too excited…yet…Plus Saliba & Buendia chat

I didn't bother to watch any football yesterday (no Arsenal, no bother) but at 10pm last night as the news was on I thought I'd have a flick through my Twitter feed. And blow me down if I don't see a load of Arsenal fans talking about the 1997/98 run that won us the league. [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Brighton away: Not vintage, but confidence restoring for The Arsenal

By |2020-12-30T09:19:24+00:00December 30th, 2020|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, youth|0 Comments

You know the phrase "the ends justify the means"? Well, having seen Arsenal look a little laboured yesterday, but ultimately pick up three points away to Brighton yesterday in the Premier League, I feel like that phrase aptly describes our overall performance yesterday evening on the south coast. That's because Arsenal's performance was hardly the [...]

Arsenal must break the Brighton hoodoo

Welcome to another match day folks and this, I have to say, has always been a frustrating one for me. Brighton and Hove Albion entertain us at 6pm on their turf and it’s been quite an unhappy hunting ground for us recently. Last season they shafted us in the last minute with a sucker punch [...]

Arsenal’s youthful energy secures the points at home to Chelsea

Holy moly I’d forgotten just how good winning feels like. having spent the last three months watching Arsenal lurch from one defeat to the next, it felt like this barren run of dreadful performances was going to go on forever, but last night we were treated to a totally different Arsenal performance to the ones [...]
