Is Arsenal’s absence in Europe really giving us much of an advantage?

Morning folks. How is it Thursday already? Before you know it we'll be staring down the barrel of a trip to Clobbermeister Central, aka Burnley Football Club, who with each week seem to be appearing on my timeline with 'tackles' that are half taking off the feet or legs of their opponents. I look forward [...]

Unai proves Arsenal are cursed in Europe!

Seeing Unai Emery lift the Europa League Trophy for the fourth time last night, having been to five finals, I couldn't help but wonder: "Are Arsenal ACTUALLY cusrsed in Europe?" This might sound like a bit of a lamenting blog this morning but honestly I am offering up a wry smile as I write it. [...]

Villareal and Emery will look to hit Arsenal on the counter

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 [...]

One day to go until the real nerves kick in, eh? And I do mean REALLY kicking in, because it feels like this game has become even more essential in terms of the potential future of Arsenal; another Sliding Doors moment for the whole team, manager and everyone associated. There were even some pretty spurious rumours [...]

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 [...]

Villareal preview: So much narrative swaying against The Arsenal

This is it folks. Crunch time. Game day. But not just any game day. We are here at season-defining game day. Again. Only today will be harder than any of the other season-defining game days we've had so far. For one thing the opposition are better than any other we've faced in the Europa League. [...]

Cashing in: Edu’s big summer ahead

Phew. That was a relief to see that Man City are still in control when it comes to the Man City Cup, the cup which essentially proves that if you have enough money you can build a squad to rotate that is better than other squads. But the most important thing at all was that [...]

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 [...]
