Arteta wants a weekend away from Arsenal too

Mikel obviously wanted a weekend without Arsenal as well after that snoozefest on Thursday night, because he did his pre match presser then and yesterday we got the video and transcription on the official site ahead of the game on Monday night against Newcastle. The good news is that Kieran Tierney isn’t going to be [...]

Arsenal must crack the tough Crystal Palace nut

It's Crystal Palace at home today and it is the type of game that four or five years ago I'd be pretty confident about us getting a win. But last season and this has pretty much dented any of that "we're The Arsenal, we win this game today" mindset that I had developed over a [...]

Smith-Rowe and Tierney the difference makers against Newcastle in the cup

A win is a win is a win. Am I right? Arsenal got that win - their fourth in a row - courtesy of a superb Emile Smith-Rowe finish and then a much needed Aubameyang goal in extra time, but whilst we can all agree that was a laboured performance last night, what I think [...]

How much does Arteta rotate Arsenal for tonight’s FA Cup game against Newcastle?

It's a little bit of a later one from me today, on account of a host of jobs i've had to do, but just before I pop out for a run I thought I'd pen some musings because it is FA Cup third round day and we've got ourselves a 5.30pm kick off on BBC [...]

How Saliba’s fared; how a Julian Brandt loan deal might fare

It's Thursday of week one of the new year and my, hasn't it flown by, eh? We're already on the countdown to the FA Cup third round and it's a home tie to Newcastle that we start to draw our attention to. However, with the lack of team news - some of which will no [...]

The Saliba situation is worrying beyond the player himself

By |2021-01-04T08:08:20+00:00January 4th, 2021|contracts, Defence, Mikel Arteta, Ownership and the board, Rant|4 Comments

Morning folks. Hope you're all good where you are? For me it's back to work and whilst the scenery doesn't change much - desk jockey working from home for the foreseeable future - the lack of booze and late get ups does, so I'm a wee bit groggy this morning, I must confess. Perhaps that's [...]

Brighton away: Not vintage, but confidence restoring for The Arsenal

By |2020-12-30T09:19:24+00:00December 30th, 2020|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, youth|0 Comments

You know the phrase "the ends justify the means"? Well, having seen Arsenal look a little laboured yesterday, but ultimately pick up three points away to Brighton yesterday in the Premier League, I feel like that phrase aptly describes our overall performance yesterday evening on the south coast. That's because Arsenal's performance was hardly the [...]

Arsenal must break the Brighton hoodoo

Welcome to another match day folks and this, I have to say, has always been a frustrating one for me. Brighton and Hove Albion entertain us at 6pm on their turf and it’s been quite an unhappy hunting ground for us recently. Last season they shafted us in the last minute with a sucker punch [...]

Arsenal approaching Chelski like a small club underdog

Boxing Day and match day. There was a time where I’d be pretty excited to have a bit of The Arsenal on at Christmas, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m not feeling overly confident and given that it’s been literally months since we won a Premier League game, the prospect of beating Chelski seems [...]
