Arsenal make it a good Friday with professional victory over Napoli

For both of these two legs against Napoli i haven't really felt nervous at all, aside from a quick pang of butterflies in the stomach about two minutes before kick off yesterday, but even that went away after I saw how Arsenal had set up and how Unai has instructed his players to play. In [...]

Unai’s squad management is to be applauded – maybe

Happy Wednesday folks. It's a pre Europa Wednesday and given that we have a massive game against Napoli in about 36 hours from me writing this, I thought I'd be a little more nervous than I am, although I think the first leg is playing a big part of it. Arsenal are a side who [...]

Watford’s physical approach must be countered

This is a big match day for our season today. Over the weekend we fell down in to sixth and if we suffer back-to-back defeats in the Premier League following the Everton debacle, then it really will start to feel like this run of so called 'easier' games isn't going to go to plan. Mainly [...]

Controlled and composed Arsenal do the job against Napoli

That was hella fun last night. There are plenty of people on the socials this morning talking about how we looked to drop a bit in the second half, that it was a bit nervy and I don't know why, but I just had complete confidence that we were going to win last night and [...]

Arsenal can’t defend, so might as well go for goals against Napoli

Howdy all and happy match day to you. I don't know why but I don't feel as nervous about this one as I probably should. With our away form in the league seeing us tank and probably drop out of the top four unless something changes, this game could have far-reaching repercussions on our season, [...]

Arsenal have a psychological problem away that will stop top four hopes

We've got some serious problems psychological in this Arsenal team that Unai Emery still has to overcome I think. Yesterday was the first of a collective of games we've been building up to where our fate is in our own hands. The Newcastle game may have been the first match back after an extended break [...]

Professional Arsenal hitting form at right time against Newcastle

Well I thought that was a thoroughly enjoyable performance last night. It was composed, assured and one of the simplest of three points we'll get this season. On a weekend where a victory could see us get in to the third spot by overcoming the Geordies, it could have been a tricky encounter against a [...]

Expect a cagey affair against Newcastle tonight

The defeat to the Scousers by the Tiny Totts has given us somewhat of an opportunity this evening. Victory sends us two points clear of them and Man United and of ever the Arsenal players needed an incentive this could be it when we play Newcastle at 8pm. I'm certainly not one to wish Liverpool [...]

Arsenal need to find 25 goals between now and the end of this season

Man United's win over Watford and Chelski's inevitable victory over Cardiff today does hit home the importance that each game has and tomorrow we have yet another example of why consistently picking up wins is crucial at this time in the season. I'm by no means counting my chickens but tomorrow night's match against Newcastle [...]

Welbeck’s return probably isn’t great news for Suarez

I had a few drinks last night and bleurgh, i'm feeling a little worse for wear, i have to tell you. But I wasn't drunk enough to watch England last night and despite the fact they smashed Czech Republic I can't get too excited about a team captained by The Crayon-eating Dribbler up top. Sorry. [...]
