Arteta needs to pick us all up

After the game on Thursday Arteta said it’s his job to pick up the players form the crushing feeling of a last second goal in extra time. But actually the man now has the weight of an entire club - including the fan base - with which to lift the mood. It’s strange though. We’re [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]

Strike early, Arsenal, strike fast

Morning peeps. Happy match day to thee and thine kin. Hopefully it’s an Arsenal-victory flavoured one. A fourth win on the bounced would be rather delicious and tonight provides that opportunity with a home second leg against Olympiakos. We did half of the job in Greece with the late Lacazette strike and with the Greek’s [...]

Gnabry’s trajectory, Saka’s future

Of ever you needed a clear-cut example of how Tony Pauli’s is ‘anti-football’, it can be evidenced by Serge Gnabry and his goals against Chelski last night, quickly followed by a collective groan by Arsenal fans everywhere. I’m not saying Pulis is totally to blame for the ‘exit stage left’ of Gnabry from Arsenal, but [...]

Fatigued Arsenal build momentum against Everton

A third win in a week is certainly nothing to be sniffed at and, with a sixth, seventh and eighth goal scored in eight days, then you can’t really be complaining too much after the season we’ve had. It felt like a weird old game though. What I mean by that is that when I [...]

The wings are key today: Arsenal v Everton preview

There is a match day to be had today folks and much like Tyson Fury on his journey to achieve his objectives and be the best, this is another hurdle that this Arsenal team must overcome if we want to claw our way up the table and build confidence to fight for titles and trophies. [...]

Speculating on Arsenal’s summer rebuild

Yo folks, hope all is well? I’m groggy this morning. I have been off the booze for a few weeks so I could drop a few pounds in weight, but last night The Management and I just felt like having a few glasses, so an entire bottle of Chianti later and I’m waking up this [...]

Keep the crowd quiet and score first tonight, Arsenal

I’ve got that song in my head from Home Alone 2. You know the one “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” by Johnny Mathis? Yep, that one, only I’ve replaced some of the words to create a new version circling my brain on repeat: It’s the most wonderful time, of the week.... Yes [...]

Rotation tomorrow, but not too much; Saka’s contract

Morning folks. This will probably be a short one from me, on account of the fact I’ve spent half my journey this morning clearing up f*cking hot sauce that fell on the floor as I sat down on the Met Line this morning. FFS! Anyway, in terms of Arsenal there’s not too much going on [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]
