Morning folks and welcome to Saturday. And it's a slightly different blog today because it appears as though not only we have a match to digest at lunchtime, but also a signing and one more that seems virtually on the way. On the one that is on the way - Odegaard - I'd like to [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Arsenal approaching Chelski like a small club underdog

Boxing Day and match day. There was a time where I’d be pretty excited to have a bit of The Arsenal on at Christmas, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m not feeling overly confident and given that it’s been literally months since we won a Premier League game, the prospect of beating Chelski seems [...]

High press and avoid the counter: the blueprint for victor over Wolves

By |2020-11-29T09:56:13+00:00November 29th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Iiiiiiiiit’s matchday! Always a day that is both exciting and terrifying because in 12 hours time we’ll know that Arsenal have either buggered up another opportunity to get points on the board, or they’ll have made this weekend a heck of a lot better by beating Wolves. But in order to do that it feels [...]

Arsenal’s balance and a high press might beat Wolves

Moring folks and welcome to Saturday. How you doing? Y'alreet? I'm fine, thanks for asking, although I did stay up too late watching The Good, The Bad and The Ugly last night and my body clock is such that it doesn't matter what time I go to bed, I'm always up around 7am. That's not [...]

Arteta needs to inject pace into Arsenal attack against Leeds

I believe I have some very real fears and trepidation about today’s game at Elland Road. The preparation the Arsenal players have had in the build up to this hasn’t been ideal, with injuries, COVID and the form of some of our players, plus I have some bad memories of defeats going up there I [...]

Partey, Xhaka and Ceballos – let’s see if that midfield trio can work

By |2020-11-16T08:23:38+00:00November 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Formation, injuries, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Still not a lot going on in the Arsenal world today, well, other than the ladies football in which the Arsenal women drew yesterday. But I've never really been able to get myself 'in' to it to be honest. It's the same with the youth football too. I want players coming through, it is great [...]

Arsenal need to find an answer to Villa’s low block and counter

And here we are at another match day folks. It’s a late kick off, a disgusting ‘pay-per-view’ kick off, with a return of a former player we all know and love in the shape of Emi Martinez, as we line up against Aston Villa at The Emirates tonight. We all know Emi is having the [...]

Can Arsenal use Partey and pace to spring the trap against Man United?

Morning all and welcome to match day. This is a match day that, let's be honest, has rarely been a fun one for us and given both teams' respective form I'm not exactly overly confident of us getting three points today. There have been times where I've thought "this year, with that United team and [...]

Have you bought in to Project Arteta?

Afternoon folks and welcome to another weekend, this one on the eve of what feels like it might be #Lockdown2 in the UK unfortunately. It's going to be another tough winter and for those who are struggling to look for a new job, like Huss Fahmy, it might be a difficult Christmas. Yes indeed, the [...]
