Well folks, this feels like it could be pretty much it tonight, what it all boils down to and should the worst happen this evening and we sh*t the bed against Unai Emery's Villareal then the season is essentially finished in all but name. It feels like last chance saloon for Mikel and his charges [...]

Villareal thoughts: Arteta’s tinkering and Ceballos’ inclusion could cost us

The most positive thing to come from what we witnessed last night was that we are still, somehow, in this tie. That it had to come from a penalty which was, let's face it 'generous' at best, is a real cause for concern and in a semi final of a European competition you really do [...]

Imperious Arsenal batter Slavia

Now THAT'S more like it, eh? That's more like an Arsenal performance that we can all get behind, appreciate and generally feel more positive as this dreadful season draws to a close, as Arsenal ran away 4-0 winners against a team who before the game had basically been proven by UEFA to be wrong in [...]

Arteta gets it all wrong again against Slavia Prague

Well folks, the good news is that we aren't out of the Europa League yet, that there is still another leg to go and an opportunity for Arsenal to progress to the semi final of the competition. In itself a 1-1 draw in a two-legged tie isn't the worst thing in the world; you still [...]

Arteta must shuffle the pack in the right way tonight

If somebody would have told me a month ago that this Arsenal team would be going in to a quarter final of a Europa League tie with somewhat of a crisis of confidence potentially brewing, I'd have probably have laughed it off. We'd beaten Leicester, shot ourselves in the foot against Burnley but had battered [...]

Implosion and regression at the worst time of the season for The Arsenal

Yesterday I wrote that I didn't really feel too fussed about the game, that it didn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things and in terms of the physical result, I certainly feel the same in the cold light of day today after that abysmal home capitulation against Liverpool last night. But what [...]

Momentum more than points for Arsenal against Liverpool

Morning folks and here we are, finally back to a match day, thank gawd. Only it's a match day in which if we're honest probably doesn't have that much riding on it. Liverpool come to town and despite their poor form, they are still a side to be feared and we are a side who [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal return with Odegaard pulling the strings

Football is bloody bonkers sometimes. Yesterday's game away to West Ham was an example of that and I'll be honest with you, I have no idea how to properly judge what we all witnessed yesterday. That's because when I usually analyse how I feel with The Arsenal it usually falls in to quite a binary [...]

West Ham preview: take your chances when they come, Arsenal!

It's match day today and it's one that always has significance in my family, because it is where rivalries are split, given a large chunk of my family are West Ham fans. It's a little like the North London Derby because i'm not really a fan of it, but it doesn't have the same level [...]

Arsenal stutter over the line against Olympiakos

Well I guess we got through and that, first and foremost, is the most important thing on a night in which the Scum utterly diarrhea'd in their own bed to go out to Dinamo Zagreb. Arteta even mentioned their exit in terms of how we have to sort out displays like last night because  what [...]
