Get those Hale Enders on the pitch on Sunday Mikel!

I'm sure there are some morning's where Mikel Arteta wakes up and thinks to himself: "eugh, I have to do a presser today" I bet after comprehensive victories like Thursday night, yesterday was NOT one of those days. So over he must have sped to London Colney to deliver his virtual conference to the assembled [...]

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 [...]

Slavia Prague away: win or bust for Arteta’s Arsenal

Well now folks, this is it, pretty much, for this season, by my reckoning. Fail to perform tonight hand get a win (or a high scoring draw) and Arsenal go out to a team who have just had it confirmed that they have a racist captain and who never really offered much at The Emirates [...]

The fear I have if we have our young connectors out against Slavia Prague

And now we play the waiting game....That game of course is every Arsenal fan collectively holding our breaths as we wait patiently for either the club, or Arteta, to give us an idea on who is fit and who isn't ahead of a massive game against Slavia Prague tomorrow night. He'll have to tell us [...]

Arteta needs to be rolling the substitutes dice better

Isn't it just the most 'Arsenal' thing ever to have a fully fit squad a month or so ago, yet here we are approaching crunch time, when things are decided and shiny silver trinkets are to be won, with players dropping like flies. After the game on Sunday evening Arteta gave a brief update and [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal minds must now be laser focused – no excuses

Morning all. Happy Wednesday to you. It's still a holiday for me as I decided to extend the Easter break, which means I still comprise of about 10% chocolate Easter eggs, 15% booze, then 10% turkey. The rest of me is all the human bits like organs 'n stuff. It's interesting though because when you're [...]

Arteta’s future: I’m becoming a Doubting Thomas

Bit of a provocative title for today's blog, I know, but let me just explain myself a little with my thinking here. Also, what with it being an Easter weekend, I thought I'd go for a variation on a theme... Yesterday after I'd written my usual match review on what transpired in the limp 3-0 [...]

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 [...]
