Another uninspiring Arsenal performance at Leicester – is Emery still here?

Sometimes I feel like I write about Arsenal out of some kind of habitual nature, because if I'm completely honest with you, I really don't feel that motivated to do it this morning. Yet here I am, Sunday morning, tapping away at my iPhone trying to make sense of what is going on at Arsenal [...]

A back three’s a brewing away to Leicester

It's match day today and the tam will most likely - unless they did last night - be on their way to face an in-form Leicester City side that I don't think many people have us down for victory for the evening. I can totally understand that and to be honest with you I am [...]

Torreira to outlast Unai Emery?

As if things can't feel like they seem any more farcical right now, we found out yesterday that Lucas Torreira wants talks with the manager because he is not happen with his current situation or his role in the Arsenal team, which to most of us is a 'well, duh' kind of moment really. That's [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]

A strong team simply must deliver in Portugal today

Today was supposed to be a standard match preview blog ahead of this afternoon's ridiculously early kick off away to Vitoria, but after the news dropped yesterday evening from Unai Emery that Xhaka had been dropped as captain, I guess that probably takes a little bit of the focus off the game itself today. Aubameyang [...]

Another boring game. Pull the trigger on Emery, Arsenal, please.

How many of us are surprised with the performance yesterday? I bet there are few. Unai Emery and his team absolutely 100% needed a win and after scoring a goal in the first half and weathering a storm from Wolves, it looked like we were trying to hold out for a one-niller, but the deserved [...]

Changes afoot for Unai, as Wolves come to town

Morning campers, how's everyone doing on this wet and drizzly day (well, for Londoners, anyway)? Are we all feeling excited and expectant that Arsenal will pick up three points on our first three o'clock kick off of the season? No, me neither, but i'll always have my hope. I'll always have my desire for Arsenal [...]

Grinding out a difficult result against Sheffield United – what we hope is in store for The Arsenal

Finally, match day is upon us, having had to wait what feels like an eternity for The Arsenal to arrive after a particularly draggy international break. It's a trip up to Sheffield United and for those of you with memories long enough, that 2006 defeat at Bramall Lane will probably feel a little fresher than [...]

Fun in the shower for Arsenal’s rotated team against Forest

Well now wasn't that a bit of fun to watch last night? It didn't matter that it was bucketing it down because for those that made the trip to The Emirates last night they were treated to a goal-fest and some great performances from some of those rotated players. In fact I'd say that there [...]

Xhaka and Torreira base to build on against Villa?

Villa at home at 4.30pm this Sunday afternoon represents an opportunity for Unai Emery and his players to show that we're back on the 'winning wagon'. We won in midweek against Frankfurt but building momentum needs a series of wins together and with United away coming up next weekend we really can't afford to be [...]
