Play a Torreira as a DM and get those new fullbacks in ASAP

Morning folks and welcome to another weekend. This weekend sees us play at home to Aston Villa and having faced 55 shots on our goal in the last two games, I'm sure Bernd Leno is hopeful for a quieter afternoon tomorrow. We are too open, giving up too many opportunities, we are behaving naively at [...]

Özil situation still baffles, as rotation must be on the cards against Frankfurt

Last night I had a Singapore Laksa for dinner that I made and, having tried to sample it in the pan when still boiling, I burnt my tongue. It has left a bad taste etched to the tip of my tongue since. Which is pretty much how it feels when talking about the Mesut Özil [...]

Watford capitulation should raise questions about Emery

Yesterday's second half capitulation by Arsenal has once again raised more questions than given answers and, sadly, the questions aren't really overly positive. That's because what we fans witnessed yesterday was a team of mentally bereft idiots gift a two-goal lead to a side bottom of the league and who about a mont ago got [...]

Laca’s loss is Nelson’s gain – can he deliver?

So, boys and girls, what did we learn from yesterday's pre-match presser with Unai Emery ahead of the travel to Watford on Sunday? Well, for one thing, we're going to be missing Alexandre Lacazette for the game, plus for the rest of September, which also rules him out of that game at Old Trafford in [...]

Is it time for Pepe at Anfield today?

Morning all and welcome to another match day, probably the hardest of the season I think, because Liverpool are certainly one of the best two teams in the league. A 5.30pm kick off for our boys means we have to do a bit of waiting before we find out our fate but such is the [...]

Do Eddie Nketiah and Dani Ceballos share similar fates?

Being a lazy not-so-little oik, I can't be bothered to search through my recent blog poss, but if I could I'd be pretty sure that I'd find the blog in which I talked up what a good move to Leeds United the Nketiah deal was for him, for us and potentially, for Leeds. He scored [...]

Questions in defence and midfield, loads of options up top for The Arsenal against Burnley

This feels like the proper start to the season for me today. I picked up a fresh set of home and away kits and will be rocking my beautiful red and white Adidas Arsenal shirt in the ground today for the first game of the season. I'm right back there. Right back to the obsession [...]

Stop the Newcastle long ball supply line today, Arsenal

It's the first game day of the season and like I said yesterday, despite feeling like I'm done with football in May, here we are in August and I'm right back in the game. An away trip to Newcastle it is for our lads and with the new signings probably not all 100% ready, I [...]

How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]
