Morning folks. Happy Chinese New Year if you're so inclined to celebrate it. Me personally, I'm half celebrating because my company is predominantly Asian based and so whilst I don't get the day off like many of them do, I have to say it's rather nice having a week where I can play catch up [...]

Our right hand side the stuff of nightmares against City

In yesterday's pre match blog I said that I thought the midfield pairing would have a bearing on the outcome of the game. I think it's fair to say I got that one a bit wrong. In fact, it was the midfield two of Guendouzi and Torreira who I thought came out of the game [...]

Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

Football a sideshow on a sombre evening against Cardiff

This game will have a sadly strange feel about it today I think, what with it being the first game since Cardiff City have played, having tragically lost Emiliano Sala to that plane crash over a week ago. It's times like that in which you realise how football is just a side distraction in your [...]

Confidence from Chelski will be key, but what formation for Emery?

Match day? On a Friday you say? At any other time I'd kinda like it. I work in a London, takes me about 15 minutes on the train to get to Highbury & Islington, so I can get a few jars in with the lads. Great fun. Except The Management booked us in for tickets [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal do the business against Chelsea

I love it the day after a big game win comes around and yesterday's 2-0 victory over Chelski really perked us up after a week or two of some pretty sad looking Arsenal faces everywhere. Uni Emery has faced his first bit of questioning from fans in recent weeks and the disappointment over the omission [...]

Playing Özil could be the difference; the wing backs are vital against Chelsea today

Happy Saturday folks. It's match day which is always a lovely old distraction and today, after what feels like a long week of turmoil and rumour, we get some actual football to sink our teeth in to. Chelski Cole to our gaff and it's weird because although it's essentially a season definer for The Arsenal, [...]

West Ham defeat shows Unai must swallow his pride on some players

Yesterday's game was, unfortunately, not a 'bad day at the office' that we can say is in isolation with this Arsenal team. Sadly our away form has dropped off of a cliff for the last month and in the league when you consider that has included Southampton, Brighton and West Ham - where we've taken [...]

West Ham v Arsenal: attacks could be the difference

It's an early kick off today and hopefully that means an opportunity to start the weekend off on a positive note by picking up three points away to West Ham. It won't be an easy game because Pellegrini seems to have steadied what feels like a wobbly old ship since they left Upton Park and [...]

Abject Arsenal embarrass themselves at Liverpool

It's hard to really find the words to describe what went on yesterday at Anfield. Adjectives like appalling, farcical, embarrassing, all spring to mind first and foremost, but even they don't feel like they really explain the performance of the excuses for footballers that took to the pitch in a mint green Arsenal kit last [...]
