Our right hand side the stuff of nightmares against City

In yesterday's pre match blog I said that I thought the midfield pairing would have a bearing on the outcome of the game. I think it's fair to say I got that one a bit wrong. In fact, it was the midfield two of Guendouzi and Torreira who I thought came out of the game [...]

What are Emery’s Arsenal? Man United review

Morning all. I must admit I didn't actually go to the game last night and when I checked my phone after i'd finished what I was doing in the evening, I feel like I dodged a bit of a bullet, because it was a familiar story against United on our home soil. It's what happens [...]

Confidence from Chelski will be key, but what formation for Emery?

Match day? On a Friday you say? At any other time I'd kinda like it. I work in a London, takes me about 15 minutes on the train to get to Highbury & Islington, so I can get a few jars in with the lads. Great fun. Except The Management booked us in for tickets [...]

Bellerin’s injury force club to think long term

So we've lost Hector for the whole season, confirmed by the club yesterday evening, which now means that some kind of solution at right back needs to be found by a unai Emery. It's a bitter blow for the team because it was obvious the difference in class that Hector brought to the team when [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal do the business against Chelsea

I love it the day after a big game win comes around and yesterday's 2-0 victory over Chelski really perked us up after a week or two of some pretty sad looking Arsenal faces everywhere. Uni Emery has faced his first bit of questioning from fans in recent weeks and the disappointment over the omission [...]

Playing Özil could be the difference; the wing backs are vital against Chelsea today

Happy Saturday folks. It's match day which is always a lovely old distraction and today, after what feels like a long week of turmoil and rumour, we get some actual football to sink our teeth in to. Chelski Cole to our gaff and it's weird because although it's essentially a season definer for The Arsenal, [...]

West Ham v Arsenal: attacks could be the difference

It's an early kick off today and hopefully that means an opportunity to start the weekend off on a positive note by picking up three points away to West Ham. It won't be an easy game because Pellegrini seems to have steadied what feels like a wobbly old ship since they left Upton Park and [...]

Full fitness at Arsenal: Unai – play your best team!

We have a load of fit players again! It's some sort of miracle! We can field 'actual' players in their natural positions on Saturday! What a thrill! Let's be honest, it's been long enough though, because for the last month and a bit we've patched up the team as injury and suspension kicked in and [...]

Pepe, Cahill and Under, but Unai must work with what he’s got

Morning all and welcome to the most murkiest time of the year - the January transfer window. It's a time in which rumours are rife and agents get paid and let's be honest although we all like shiny and new things it's a time in which people get a little bit more tightly wound, are [...]

Abject Arsenal embarrass themselves at Liverpool

It's hard to really find the words to describe what went on yesterday at Anfield. Adjectives like appalling, farcical, embarrassing, all spring to mind first and foremost, but even they don't feel like they really explain the performance of the excuses for footballers that took to the pitch in a mint green Arsenal kit last [...]
