NLD nerves kicking in as Nacho departs

Blimey I'm tired. Plus I have a banging headache. I'm sat in a park in Manchester at 9am and my only friend right now is fresh air. It's a good friend to be honest. I will say this though; the thought of the impending North London Derby isn't helping my current situation. The fixture gives [...]

Emery’s NLD dilemmas: Monreal, front three and tactical set up

Unai's pre match presser had a wee bit of unexpected positive news yesterday, as it seems that Holding, Bellerin and Tierney might just be all back in to full training after the international break. Of course they're likely to not be ready for first team action for a few weeks, but it looks like Holding [...]

Alexis’ failure is delicious; Unai’s success is needed

Well if ever there was a failed move between two top clubs it was that of Alexis Sanchez who, in chasing the megabucks, finds himself an unwanted man and about to be shipped to the barren wasteland known as Serie A. A tenth month loan deal in which United have to shell out £6million during [...]

I question the timing of Monreal’s Arsenal exit

I get that Nacho Monreal is of an age where his stock is falling somewhat. I understand that we've see. A decline in his levels of reliability that we have had for so many years. It's why the club went out and got Kieran Tierney and had the Scot not been injured having recently had [...]

Luiz’s idiocy makes matters worse at Anfield

When we signed David Luiz from Chelski I think most of us immediately thought about his marauding ways, or his long ball distribution, I know I certainly did. But yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool brought back the other, more frustrating part to his game, which is the mindless stupidity that he sometimes delivers. Firstly the [...]

Unai can use injuries to solve selection problems

Happy first y'all. I'm in a grand ol' mood I can tell you that much. The sun is in the sky in the South East, the weekend is within touching distance, it's going to be a warm one in England and a bank holiday to boot. If only there wasn't the pesky notion of having [...]

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 [...]

‘Free hits’ and good PR – everything’s ok at Arsenal at the moment

Much like Leicester against Chelski on Sunday, I found myself quietly celebrating Wolves' draw at home to Man United last night, as already those teams that you'd call 'rivals' are dropping points. However, upon reflection, the fact it was Leicester and Wolves did make me worry a little bit, because those are two teams who [...]

Is the Arsenal squad getting more balance about it?

Welcome to another Monday folks. I watched yesterday's game between Chelski and Leicester and although I found myself chuckling in to my lamb shank I'd prepared for evening meal, upon reflection I shouldn't have been chuckling as hearty, because Leicester are no mugs and they'll pick up plenty of points this season. They play decent [...]

Ceballos and Willock impress as we get 3 points against a physical Burnley

Well, that was an interesting lunchtime spent yesterday afternoon, wasn't it? Actually, probably not, because like Arsenal like to do I chipped off most of the fingernails I had with my teeth in the last ten minutes or so. It's not that we were massively troubled and it's not like Burnley were overly quality, but [...]
