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

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 [...]

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’

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 [...]

Arsenal must win the duels against a counter-attacking Villa

Happy matchday folks. Hope you and yours are well. It's two in a week for us; feels almost like the old days of the Europa League and Champions League, eh? Those feelings of playing every few days may have gone, but at least we've had a fair few like that with the League Cup and [...]

Arteta needs to sweep aside the narrative and Arsenal must ‘click’ against Palace

A week of 'R n R' in Spain this past seven days and having also decided that the international break was an opportunity to step away from the blog in the mornings, I find myself rejuvenated and excited for what feels like 'Part III' of Arsenal's season. In Part I we experienced the lows, the [...]

Two sides, multiple formation options, difficult to predict: Brighton v Arsenal

Morning folks and welcome to matchday! It's the most wonderful time of the week.....maybe... ;-) It's a trip to Brighton for Arteta and the lads and I must tell you, I'm quite nervous about this game, which I take a good thing because it means that some of the apathy i've felt in recent years [...]
