Another matchday is here and it’s ‘Part II’ of our Death Run as we come up against Leicester City at The Emirates this evening. This game is an intriguing one - and just as terrifying as the Wolves one - because of the way in which Leicester battered us on their turf earlier in the [...]

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday. I hope you and yours are keeping well. I have woken up this morning in a good mood. Is it because I have no meetings today and so can just get through my 'to do' list without much interruption? Or could it be because it's payday? Maybe. But mostly it is [...]

Rotation for Arsenal in the FA Cup today?

Howdy folks and a happy matchday to thee. It’s another Sunday game for us but it’s time to get ‘up for the cup’ as we face off against Sheffield United in our 697th away match in a row... This was not a happy stomping ground earlier in the season and in fact our record there [...]

There is a match day to be had today folks and much like Tyson Fury on his journey to achieve his objectives and be the best, this is another hurdle that this Arsenal team must overcome if we want to claw our way up the table and build confidence to fight for titles and trophies. [...]

I’ve got that song in my head from Home Alone 2. You know the one “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” by Johnny Mathis? Yep, that one, only I’ve replaced some of the words to create a new version circling my brain on repeat: It’s the most wonderful time, of the week.... Yes [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

Refreshed Arsenal need to lay down a marker against Newcastle – match preview

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]

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) [...]

Arsenal need to be compact between the lines to beat Crystal Palace

Morning folks from a relatively wet Belfast, in which I'm treating The Management to a birthday weekend away to see the giant's causeway. It means I'm not sure if I'll get time to watch The Arsenal but I'll have to see if I can find a pub to watch it in at some stage I'm [...]
