Arsenal looking good against Man City, VAR and referees less so

I have a whole plethora of mixed emotions this morning. Yesterday's game against Man City was one that I thought to myself was a free hit, I just wanted us to compete, but what we got was an Arsenal team that not only competed, but I thought dominated Man City for two-thirds of a football [...]

Arsenal doing the job; confidence soaring against Norwich

Some days writing about The Arsenal feels like a proper chore. I've been - broadly speaking - writing about Arsenal for 13 years and so it has become habitual, which means I really do have to drag my carcass to the laptop and at this time of the year with over-indulgence a daily occurrence, it [...]

Pepe and Nketiah to get a shot against Norwich?

It’s match day and a Boxing Day one in which Arsenal face a struggling Norwich side who currently sit bottom of the league having picked up two wins and four draws all season. They have found it struggling even since Dean Smith took over and even have a fair few injury and COVID problems today, [...]

Arteta’s balancing act for Christmas

By |2021-12-24T09:19:23+00:00December 24th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|2 Comments

So it seems we are now playing the waiting game when it comes to our Boxing Day fixture. Two games were called off yesterday, including Wolves’ match against Leeds and that means Wolves will have had a full nine days rest between their 0-0 draw against Chelski on 19th and when they play us. Hardly [...]

Nketiah and Pepe give Arteta something to think about after Sunderland win

There's no besmirching a 5-1 win, that's for sure and when you do it having rotated most of your team in the League Cup during a busy festive schedule, waking up the next morning feels all the more jubilant I reckon. We've seen plenty of instances in the past where rotated teams for Premier League [...]

The return of the “he’s in behind the defence” goals at Arsenal?

Well now, isn't it nice to start the week run up to Christmas knowing that whatever happens, The Arsenal will be fourth on Christmas Day. We may not stay there, we may fall away and have a shocker of a Christmas period between now and the new year, but as it stands we can smile [...]

Martinelli masterclass as Arsenal click away to Leeds

Three points, loads of goals, am impressive performance and to top it all off.....away from home! As the countdown to kick off slowly approached yesterday I found myself checking my football news feeds for stories that the game was going to get called off. Villa vs Burnley was announced a couple of hours before kick [...]

Arsenal must be more direct to beat the Leeds high press

This feels a little weird this morning because I'm writing a pre match preview of the game later on today between Leeds and The Arsenal, without really being 100% confident as to whether it will actually be going ahead, what with all of the COVID-19 problems causing matches left, right and centre to be cancelled [...]

Arsenal must constantly reinvent themselves to succeed

Morning all and welcome to Friday. Hope you're all feeling good? I had to take the first of my lateral flow 'countdown to Christmas' tests this morning. I didn't go to West Ham on Wednesday because I didn't want to risk it, plus the fact I was in the Tollington on Saturday and it was [...]

Martinelli shines as Arsenal put West Ham to the sword

Watching football, talking about football, writing about football - it's all hella fun when your team plays well and wins, eh? That's what we had yesterday evening and I tell you what; I slept sound as a baby last night. Compared to the Everton performance where I tossed and turned all evening, last night was [...]
