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 [...]

Arsenal make it a good Friday with professional victory over Napoli

For both of these two legs against Napoli i haven't really felt nervous at all, aside from a quick pang of butterflies in the stomach about two minutes before kick off yesterday, but even that went away after I saw how Arsenal had set up and how Unai has instructed his players to play. In [...]

Unai’s squad management is to be applauded – maybe

Happy Wednesday folks. It's a pre Europa Wednesday and given that we have a massive game against Napoli in about 36 hours from me writing this, I thought I'd be a little more nervous than I am, although I think the first leg is playing a big part of it. Arsenal are a side who [...]

Controlled and composed Arsenal do the job against Napoli

That was hella fun last night. There are plenty of people on the socials this morning talking about how we looked to drop a bit in the second half, that it was a bit nervy and I don't know why, but I just had complete confidence that we were going to win last night and [...]

Arsenal can’t defend, so might as well go for goals against Napoli

By |2019-04-11T11:07:48+00:00April 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Europa League, Match Preview, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Howdy all and happy match day to you. I don't know why but I don't feel as nervous about this one as I probably should. With our away form in the league seeing us tank and probably drop out of the top four unless something changes, this game could have far-reaching repercussions on our season, [...]

How do we overcome Arsenal’s psychological issues?

It's all a bit quiet on the Arsenal front today. No game until tomorrow and we have a press conference that will probably take place tonight in which the manager and a player will give us an update ahead of tomorrow nights crucial game against Napoli. The most important bit of news will be who [...]

79 points gets Arsenal a top four spot, but margin for error is negligible

With the season defining part of 2018/19 upon ads, I started to do that classic football fan related thing of playing out every single game in my mind to see what I think our realistic chances of hitting the targets that are before us between now and May. I recognise it's a completely redundant idea [...]

April will define Unai Emery’s first season at Arsenal

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 [...]
