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 [...]

If it’s Ancelotti at Arsenal, he needs to…

By |2019-12-11T07:27:23+00:00December 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Tactics|4 Comments

So Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli last night and immediately Arsenal fans are deciding in which side of the fence they fall with regards to him potentially at the club. Those that are against his signing point to the Bayern era and how the players rebelled against the Italian, those who are for Ancelotti [...]

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 [...]

West Ham preview: pick wingers, Fred, wingers

An earlier start than usual for me, coupled with Sunday night drinking, means that it's a groggy Monday morning blog I'll be compiling for you today. The weather is like my mood when it comes to The Arsenal these days too: pretty foul. It's West Ham away tonight and after seeing the team put in [...]

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 [...]

Freddie’s insightful presser gives hope ahead of Brighton

As a football fan you always look for the hole in a new situation and before the Norwich game I think we all did, as we backed Freddie, hoping for an instant turnaround. Of course it wasn't to be and yet again we saw some pretty shoddy defending that cost us all three points as [...]

No new Arsenal manager until January

By |2019-12-03T07:45:08+00:00December 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league|0 Comments

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]

Premier League campaign over with another draw

By |2019-12-02T07:36:41+00:00December 2nd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Ownership and the board, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

There's quite a big caveat in the analysis of yesterday's draw away to Norwich. That caveat is that Freddie Ljungberg has had barely a few hours inputting his ideas into this set of players. So perhaps yesterday's performance still bore the hallmarks of Emery's Arsenal. The caveat that Freddie has had such little time is [...]

Emery’s time is up. But other questions remain.

It's finally happened. Yesterday morning Unai arrived at the training ground to prepare for the Norwich game this weekend and he didn't even get to put the cones out. By the time the first ball was kicked at London Colney he and his Spanish staff had been told that their services were no longer required [...]

An empty Arsenal stadium to see some fun against Frankfurt tonight?

Have you ever felt so 'Meh' about a game in your life? Probably. There's games towards the end of the season when there's nothing left to play for that feel very pointless and although this match tonight has something riding on it - Europa League qualification to the k computer phase - it's hard to [...]
