Smith-Rowe and Tierney the difference makers against Newcastle in the cup

A win is a win is a win. Am I right? Arsenal got that win - their fourth in a row - courtesy of a superb Emile Smith-Rowe finish and then a much needed Aubameyang goal in extra time, but whilst we can all agree that was a laboured performance last night, what I think [...]

Arteta and Arsenal’s midfield test at the Community Shield today

Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]

Flexible formations for Arsenal ahead of ‘set systems’

Morning folks and welcome to another midweek of this weird pre-season we find ourselves in. What's weird about it is that even though the FA Cup is still relatively fresh in the minds of most of us (despite Arsenal's attempts to pour cold water on it through signings, redundancies, sackings at the top, etc), we [...]

Torreira wants out as Willian and Coutinho are on the horizon

By |2020-08-08T07:47:46+01:00August 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Transfers|3 Comments

Howdy folks. Right, plenty to talk about today, so let’s get at it, starting with Willian who was apparently ‘done’ on Monday and now we’re obviously just waiting on official confirmation from the club and player and I suspect that might happen tomorrow or Monday depending on the Chelski result in the Champions League tonight [...]

I see Willian logic, but I’m not 100% behind it

Morning folks and welcome to another post-FA Cup final victory day. It really is rather blissful and I think i'm going to see if I can continue to ride the crest of this particular wave for as long as possible. If it can take me well into the weekend then that'd be just grand. There's [...]

The FA Cup win as the positive ‘sliding door’ moment we needed

By |2020-08-03T08:01:04+01:00August 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

I spent intermittent moments of yesterday just smiling to myself. If the Cup final of 2019 cut deep and was a wound that took long to heal, this weekend's victory in the FA Cup helped to stitch up some of that wound. It was like the lollipop you got at the doctors when you were [...]

Arteta, Auba and Arsenal mastermind an FA Cup win

This is going to be a fun blog to write today, because The Arsenal, we won the bloody cup! I am a happy man. Last season I felt broken after that Europa League final. It really hit me hard and had knock in effects this season, even affecting my ability to become optimistic and hopeful [...]

Nothing silly in the FA Cup Final today, Arsenal

By |2020-08-01T10:39:57+01:00August 1st, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

It’s cup final day and I am a very nervous man. Today’s game isn’t just the last game of the season, it isn’t just about a shiny silver trinket, it is also a financially and footballisticly significant crossroads the club finds itself in. I so desperately want us to win the FA Cup today. But [...]

Holding’s dreadlocks to help win the FA Cup for Arsenal?

T-minus 57 hours and counting from the FA Cup Final as I type out today's Arsenal-related nonsense and I have to say I feel just as nervous as I have done all week. As I've already said on a podcast and the blog, this could all go very well or very bad and mentally I'm [...]

Arsenal – Hard “No’s” on Partey, Coutinho, Willian and Zaha

Happy Wednesday folks, as we rapidly approach the 'Sliding Doors' moment that is our FA Cup Final on Saturday, given the possible outcomes we could face. Win and there's a little more cash in the coffers and an opportunity to play European Football next season. Lose and we stare down the barrel of the no [...]
