Soares in is a sensible move for Arsenal

Bit of a later one from me today. Partly because I was working from home this morning and therefore haven't been sat on the tube able to write my usual ramblings. But mainly because I went out last night on a work corporate thing and first thing this morning I was pretty hanging. It's a [...]

The dominant Arsenal kids do the business in Bournemouth

I wondered what type of Arsenal we'd get for yesterday evening's FA Cup fourth round away tie to Bournemouth. On the GT Radio show last night I missed that each match had played out very differently so far: One game in which we'd not taken our chances and were frustrated (Bournemouth away in the league) [...]

A full strength team for Arteta away to Bournemouth?

Yesterday I was far too hanging to be able to tap away at my computer. Had I have been then I'd have most likely talked about Pablo Mari, who is set to become our first signing, after being spotted on Saturday night at Heathrow airport with Edu. It's a deal that brings in a centre [...]

Arteta tight-lipped on Matvienko, but less so with Ceballos

Morning folks and welcome to another bloody weekend in which Arsenal aren't playing, because we've got a poxy Monday night game going on. It's bloody annoying I can tell thee. But it is what it is and I guess we have to deal with it. I suppose if you're going to look at the positives [...]

Lemar isn’t what we need right now

I'm not going to talk about that result last nights, or the fact it seems they're basically going to go unbeaten, so let's swiftly move on to what's happening with The Arsenal right now. It feels like even the FA Cup is conspiring against us to ruin weekends. Not only do we get enough of [...]

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, [...]

Arteta’s strong stance on Xhaka, Auba and transfers is welcome

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 [...]
