Upamecano decision will upset a few gooners, but just think of Saliba

If you believe the press then you will probably have been a little bit disappointed with the news emanating from Germany that Upemencano is most likely on his way to Bayern Munich when this season probably finishes. I know there are a lot of Arsenal fans - me included - who would have loved the [...]

Pablo Mari’s situation is another headache for Arsenal

Howdy folks, hope all is well with thee and you're surviving during our continued isolation. I've been listening to a few podcasts whilst I go out running every day. Some are work related, but some are football related and I listened to the Ornstein and Chapman podcast the other day which had Phil Bardsley on [...]

Season delay will cause introspection, but Arsenal will get their fullbacks back

So, we have ourselves an enforced two week hiatus from The Arsenal, as yesterday the Premier League confirmed that the league will shut down until 4th April. It’s an admission of just how serious the Coronavirus is from a contagious point of view and I don’t think there are many people out there who would [...]

VAR does Arsenal a favour for once against West Ham

When the offside flag went up to signal Arsenal’s winning goal against West Ham yesterday, the thought never even crossed my mind that VAR would rule that it was onside and the goal should stand. Such is the extent to which we’ve been skanked by it this season I just assumed that we’d not be [...]

Ring the changes tonight, Arsenal: let’s see some of the future

It’s another Monday match day for us and it’s another silver trinket that we’re fighting for at the end of the road, as we take the trip to Fratyon Park to face a Portsmouth side who will be no mugs tonight I’m sure. Portsmouth may be a couple of divisions down from us in League [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]

Strike early, Arsenal, strike fast

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 [...]

Gnabry’s trajectory, Saka’s future

Of ever you needed a clear-cut example of how Tony Pauli’s is ‘anti-football’, it can be evidenced by Serge Gnabry and his goals against Chelski last night, quickly followed by a collective groan by Arsenal fans everywhere. I’m not saying Pulis is totally to blame for the ‘exit stage left’ of Gnabry from Arsenal, but [...]
