A turgid Premier League shines light on Sanllehi

When you realise how often some of the 'big teams' are screwing up at the moment at the top of the Premier League, it does make you wonder how Arsenal find themselves mid table with 24 games gone, because any sort of run of victories probably gets you in to the top four. How on [...]

Bore draw at Goodison – the kids need leaders

The phrase "well that was 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back again" hasn't really, over the years, been something I've associated with watching The Arsenal. But after having to sit through that utter snooze-fest yesterday lunchtime as we played out an utter bore draw against an equally confidence-shorn Everton, I think it [...]

Morning folks. It is a new day and a new dawn for Arsenal's history, as a new manager has been announced and as expected it is a man who has an affinity and affection for the club and a guy who was formerly our captain. Step forward Mikel Arteta. I have said pretty much all [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

Hope more than expectation against City at home

I can't even remember a home match day in which I've been less optimistic than I am about today's match against Man City. I mean sure, city aren't exactly the dominant force they were last season and sure, defensively they look like they can be got at. But it feels like today we could be [...]

Unconvincing Arsenal somehow top Europa League group

By |2019-12-13T07:59:18+00:00December 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Europa League, Formation, Freddie Ljungberg, Match Review, Tactics|1 Comment

So we're all waking up to a monument ours occasion in the UK this morning: Arsenal topping a group in the Europa League. A hard fought comeback yesterday in the second half from Freddie Ljungberg's charges meant that eventually, by virtue of the fact that Vitoria Guimares earned an unlikely victory in Germany, we actually [...]

A win for confidence against Liege

Matchday today means that we have another opportunity for a win and hopefully some sort of momentum building as we hit the busy festive period. The reality of the situation is that unless there is a monumental cock up of epic proportions - a five goal defeat would do it - we are through to [...]

Winning. ACTUAL winning for The Arsenal.

So THIS is what it feels like? It had been so long that I'd almost forgotten about that winning feeling. I forgotten the fist-pumpingly deliciousness of a performance that bags three points, an away one at that, with some pretty good goals chucked in as well. And they were all from open play too! And [...]

Nothing Arsenal is fun any more

Do you know what? I'm not sure I even have the energy to muster a full size, normal blog, like I do every morning. I'm genuinely just 'meh' about everything to do with Arsenal at the moment. \Later on I'm going to see some family friends. I'm godfather to the lad of our family friends [...]

Brighton at home – a 100% ‘must win’

Morning folks. Dropping you this match preview in the early hours of Thursday morning, ahead of what feels like a perpetual 'must win' for The Arsenal these days. Well, I've written it in the early hours, so please excuse the fact that there'll be even more typos than normal. Probably won't actually finish it until [...]
