Morning peeps. Happy match day to thee and thine kin. Hopefully it’s an Arsenal-victory flavoured one. A fourth win on the bounced would be rather delicious and tonight provides that opportunity with a home second leg against Olympiakos. We did half of the job in Greece with the late Lacazette strike and with the Greek’s [...]

Fatigued Arsenal build momentum against Everton

A third win in a week is certainly nothing to be sniffed at and, with a sixth, seventh and eighth goal scored in eight days, then you can’t really be complaining too much after the season we’ve had. It felt like a weird old game though. What I mean by that is that when I [...]

The wings are key today: Arsenal v Everton preview

There is a match day to be had today folks and much like Tyson Fury on his journey to achieve his objectives and be the best, this is another hurdle that this Arsenal team must overcome if we want to claw our way up the table and build confidence to fight for titles and trophies. [...]

Speculating on Arsenal’s summer rebuild

Yo folks, hope all is well? I’m groggy this morning. I have been off the booze for a few weeks so I could drop a few pounds in weight, but last night The Management and I just felt like having a few glasses, so an entire bottle of Chianti later and I’m waking up this [...]

Keep the crowd quiet and score first tonight, Arsenal

I’ve got that song in my head from Home Alone 2. You know the one “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” by Johnny Mathis? Yep, that one, only I’ve replaced some of the words to create a new version circling my brain on repeat: It’s the most wonderful time, of the week.... Yes [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

Refreshed Arsenal need to lay down a marker against Newcastle – match preview

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems aren’t the result of defensive stability

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday and all that jazz. I'm working from home today - benefits of a flexible company - and I've decided that I need a bit of fresh air in the morning. Only the fresh air of London isn't actually that fresh, plus it's pretty cold, so all-in-all it's not as great an [...]

The dominant Arsenal kids do the business in Bournemouth

I wondered what type of Arsenal we'd get for yesterday evening's FA Cup fourth round away tie to Bournemouth. On the GT Radio show last night I missed that each match had played out very differently so far: One game in which we'd not taken our chances and were frustrated (Bournemouth away in the league) [...]

A full strength team for Arteta away to Bournemouth?

Yesterday I was far too hanging to be able to tap away at my computer. Had I have been then I'd have most likely talked about Pablo Mari, who is set to become our first signing, after being spotted on Saturday night at Heathrow airport with Edu. It's a deal that brings in a centre [...]
