Morning folks and welcome to Saturday, with an early kick off and an opportunity for Arsenal to try to banish the bad taste of last weekend's battering at the hands of Liverpool. Newcastle are bottom of the league, haven't won a game yet, don't have a great record against us at the Emirates and last [...]

Liverpool preview – at least we have hope…

So here we are. Back to match day and the excited nerves are kicking in already. Although I will admit that I'd have preferred us to get back in to the swing of the Premier League without having to play one of the hardest away games in world football right now. And it's probably made [...]

Partey’s back! Ramsdale’s helping to ‘mix it up’

Friday's are always better when you have some good news to brighten your day, or when you have something exciting going on at the weekend, eh? For me it's a bit of both, actually, as I'm off in to London for a 40th birthday party tomorrow evening which will be fun. But most important of [...]

Is there an upside to all international call ups for Arsenal?

By |2021-11-09T07:28:24+00:00November 9th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Defence, Internationals, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

I've kind of gotten used to the fact that a number of our players usually get 'rest' time during the international breaks. We've seen other teams in the league see half of their squads go away, but we've been able to keep plenty of lads back  and have them prepare for the next Premier League [...]

Arsenal’s solid foundations help the win over Watford

As I exited the ground yesterday with the three points secured, I asked my Dad to reflect on the game and the performance and he said 'it was a funny old game, wasn't it?'. Indeed it was Pa, indeed it was. Arsenal controlled possession, scored goals, had big chances in the form of a penalty, [...]

Watford to mirror Arsenal’s formation, so we must step up

By |2021-11-07T09:49:26+00:00November 7th, 2021|analysis, Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This'll be a quick one today as I'm off to have a pre match meal with the family in Islington before the old man and I make our way to the game. Watford at home in the old days - like six or seven years ago - would be one in which you'd be wondering [...]

Building Arsenal’s nucleus with more time at London Colney

I often wonder how much of a 'football fan' I actually am you know. I mean, I'm a die-hard Arsenal fan and birthdays, special occasions and holidays are often navigated around based on the football calendar, but football fan? Not so much. Take this round of midweek action currently going on. Not watched a single second of it. No [...]

The Arsenal worrier and his ‘worry wall’

By |2021-11-03T07:33:41+00:00November 3rd, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Unai Emery|2 Comments

Antonio Conte to the Scum, Unai Emery to the new Geordie Oil Whores, what is happening right now? What weird twilight zone have we fallen in to that sees this collective of randomness occur? In fairness Conte has hedged his bets with an 18-month contract and you have to hope that is fails dismally and [...]

Ramsdale heroics underline Arsenal’s credentials

What a performance that was yesterday, eh? On Friday night week before last we were worried about whether this team would be able to sustain the momentum of the streak we were on. An unconvincing draw with Palace (who, despite the fact they played City with 10 men for a whole half, still picked up [...]

A tough ask for Arsenal at Leicester today

I'd take a draw today. There, I said it. I've set my stall out for today's blog early on and I'll be completely frank with you, I fear this game now that we are on the eve of it. We've scored one goal away all season, which was in the 1-0 win over Burnley. We've [...]
