Yesterday was not a fun day. Yesterday a big chunk of hope that we might end the wait for a league title crumbled away. Yes, we are just two points off Man City and yes, there are a few games left still to play, but we aren't up against any other team. We all know [...]

Uncharacteristic Arsenal mistakes leave Bayern tie in the balance

I've calmed down a little bit from my initial rage at the final whistle last night. Calmed down, but still not completely calm, because that last moment of the game should have, I think, been a penalty on Bukayo Saka. Let me show my workings here on how I get this conclusion: Neuer makes clear [...]

Arsenal must remain patient and resolute – this is still Bayern

Here we are boys and girls. The big one tonight. It's Bayern Munich at the Emirates and as soon as the draw was made a few weeks back, we all collectively took an intake of breath as Arsenal fans, because we all know the history of playing them in this competition. It ain't great. 12 [...]

Prepping for Bayern whilst admiring the Premier League table

Morning folks and happy Monday to you and yours. We got an unexpected bit of good news yesterday, didn't we, eh? Honestly when I saw Liverpool go one up in the first half against an injury-hit and out of form Man United, I was tempted to just turn the TV off and go and do [...]

This Arsenal team…my word…I’m running out of superlatives…

This Arsenal team is REALLY good. Like, REALLY good you know. I was proper nervous about yesterday. Brighton have lost one game at home all season. Liverpool could only manage a draw. The Scum got beat there. Only West Ham have picked up maximum points at the Amex and even that was a smash and grab [...]

We're back up and running again today with another Arsenal match as we try to navigate this death run month that is April and it's a trip to The Amex for Arteta's lads in the early evening kick off game. And folks, I gotta tell ya, I think this will be a tough one tonight. [...]

As expected – the stalemate that suits The Arsenal

As I and many others predicted in the build up to this match, there would be no basketball-style game, leading to goals galore. Instead, this was every bit the chess match, played between two teams who are stylistically even matched and two managers who follow similar footballing philosophies. There was the inevitable chiding online from [...]

Cagey chess match football: City v Arsenal preview

It’s the big one today and, as I suspected but didn’t say, the butterflies and nerves for this game against City later on are starting to kick in. Arsenal travel to Manchester trying to do something we haven’t managed to do in nine previous attempts in all competitions. You have to go back eight years [...]

Arsenal need to beat the final boss level

It's Good Friday, we've just finished off a bit of a preview pod on the Same Old Arsenal podcast (you can have a look here), we've got ourselves a press conference from Mikel Arteta coming up at some stage today and then he'll give us a low down on where the team is at and [...]

Saliba slighted, Rice rejoicing – the internationals still rumble on…

Oh Didier....if you're gonna come for Big Bill Saliba, you better swing hard and true, because we Arsenal fans will have his back for sure! Of course I'm sure Deschamps couldn't give a monkeys about us and what we feel, but regardless of that, it does feel a little crass of him to make comments [...]
