Gritty Arsenal beat Dirty Leeds

Well now, wasn't that a slightly different performance to the ones we'd had under Arteta in the previous three games, eh? Certainly it was what you'd call 'gritty' and in terms of the high intensity that we'd seen in the previous two games, it was hardly the same, but perhaps that was opposition dependent. Leeds [...]

Possession-based Leeds might work well for Arsenal tonight

Matchday on a Monday is becoming a far more regular thing than I'd have liked it to have been, if I'm completely honest and with all of the other FA Cup round fixtures now having been played, we'll be learning our fate before a ball is kicked. That is of course assuming we can get [...]

The importance of that Edu/Arteta relationship is massive

Morning friends and happy Saturday to you. It's an FA Cup weekend and in my opinion it's the best FA Cup weekend - cup final day aside if you're in it - of all of the round. It's the one in which all the Premier League teams feature, there's a shedload of games going on, [...]

Morning folks. Ahh man, after almost two weeks of not setting an alarm before 8am, to see the wet side of pre 7am isn't fun, that's for sure. Still, at least Arsenal have made it a little more fun this week with a hard fought win against United and much like the intensity, drive and [...]

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 [...]

What are Emery’s Arsenal? Man United review

Morning all. I must admit I didn't actually go to the game last night and when I checked my phone after i'd finished what I was doing in the evening, I feel like I dodged a bit of a bullet, because it was a familiar story against United on our home soil. It's what happens [...]

Confidence from Chelski will be key, but what formation for Emery?

Match day? On a Friday you say? At any other time I'd kinda like it. I work in a London, takes me about 15 minutes on the train to get to Highbury & Islington, so I can get a few jars in with the lads. Great fun. Except The Management booked us in for tickets [...]

Unai talks Hector, transfers and Monchi

Howdy all. One day closer to the weekend and for a change, a day even more closer towards The Arsenal playing, which is nice methinks. The manager did his press conference yesterday and spoke about the injury to Bellerin, he spoke about United and also on transfers. There's not much point in me going over [...]

Bellerin’s injury force club to think long term

So we've lost Hector for the whole season, confirmed by the club yesterday evening, which now means that some kind of solution at right back needs to be found by a unai Emery. It's a bitter blow for the team because it was obvious the difference in class that Hector brought to the team when [...]
