With work sending me across the globe in the last 10 days or so it's been difficult mustering the energy to write daily Arsenal ramblings, especially when you're so far behind on news due to the tone zones that by the time you do write something it's rendered a little redundant, so today I'm back [...]

Isn't it just the modern day football fan that we're so well informed as to what goes on thanks to an over saturation of news and content, that when the news came out that Monchi was leaving Roma yesterday, a fair few Arsenal fans (myself included) looked at the situation and exclaimed delight that hopefully [...]

No rotation at Rennes for Arsenal

Last night we saw the unlikely happen with United and I have to say it made me slightly more nervous for this Sunday's game. I'm glad we're in form and at home but they will be on cloud nine in terms of morale and confidence right now and that word I keep bleating on about [...]

Excited about Rennes and rueful over Kolasinac and other rumours

Morning folks. Just 24 hours before we head in to our ongoing European adventure and I'm really looking forward to the game. That's because the team feels like it's got a bit of cohesion about it and although we played away against the Tiny Totts last weekend, that game probably needs to be taken in [...]

Arsenal’s away form decides our season

Happy Tuesday folks. Just over 48 hours to go until the next edition of The Arsenal is out, with the gents travelling to Rennes for the first of our two legged knockout against the French side. After three games in a week it feels like a bit of a no mans land right now but [...]

Rennes will be a new challenge, hopefully with Özil a bit more involved

So our reward for the huffing and puffing against BATE Borisov is a couple of games against Rennes of Ligue Un and I think on the face of it, none of us can be too sad about that, because on paper I suppose they are one of the weaker teams. The thing is though, we [...]

Couple of wobbles, but routine result in the end for The Arsenal

I guess it all worked out in the end. So we can be pleased we're still in the hat. But my word we don't half have to huff and puff to get results at the moment. After the debacle that was the away first leg to BATE, one could forgive us Arsenal fans for feeling [...]

Movement and technical vision: how Arsenal beat BATE

For a team that has spent most of the season not turning up for one half of a game - usually the first half - tonight's match against BATE Borisov feels like it needs one heck of a first half Arsenal performance to stop the nerves of cup competition knockout to set in. It seems [...]

Waiting for Unai and Özil to skip out together

Alright? Having a good'un? Waiting patiently for some form of team news to deep through about tomorrow night's game? I hear ya. Totally in the same boat. I wonder if Unai is dreading the inevitable "are you gonna ply Özil then?" Questions from the media? He'll surely get fired a few and usually there's a [...]

Holding out hope Arsenal players will ‘click’

Howdy folks. Been a strange old weekend, hasn't it? The FA Cup weekend's are normally something we're involved in at least for a few rounds, but this year - like last year - we spent this weekend kicking our heels a bit. Well, except the players, who all disappeared off abroad somewhere to recharge their [...]
