Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]

The most ‘Meh’ weekend in Arsenal’s recent history?

By |2019-05-11T08:59:34+00:00May 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I'm off to Germany this weekend, currently urging in a London airport, waiting for my three hour-delayed flight to get here and I'll be honest with you I really couldn't be bothered to even start today's Arsenal thinking's. Yet here I am, typing away, with possibly one of the most 'meh' Premier League weekend's I [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]

Domestic bottle job complete with pathetic draw to Brighton

Well, yesterday was a total shambles, eh? Although there was an outside chance we might be able to qualify for Champions League yesterday, those Arsenal players contrived to blow it, picking up just one point against a Brighton team who literally had nothing to play for, had probably spent the night partying and would have [...]

Patience and professionalism the key for Arsenal at home to Brighton

It's the last home game of the season today, a chance to say goodbye to Cech and Ramsey and quite unbelievably, a game in which winning could still keep us in the hunt for a final day top four spot. Quite how we are still in it is beyond me but bizarrely after the Tiny [...]

Top four is done, but Laca could still fire us to Europa League success

Unai faced the media yesterday and as usual never really said anything of interest, also not confirming whether Cech will play his last game of the season tomorrow against Brighton. I'd like to say that Brighton will have nothing to play for if they are safe, but Palace didn't, which didn't stop us from absolutely [...]

Auba changes the complexion of semi final

I thought last night's game against Valencia worked out well in the end, considering where we were on the 12th minute, a goal down and looking as ropey as ever at the back. But let's give some credit to 'home team Arsenal' - a very different proposition to 'away team Arsenal' - because they bounced [...]

An away goal (or lack of) could be essential tonight for Arsenal’s cup hopes

Here we are folks. This game this evening represents - in my opinion - one of the most important in the season for these Arsenal players. That's because our horrendous away form invariably means that we are going to struggle at the Mestalla and so unless we win - and win well - tonight, I [...]
