Xhaka playing on Saturday? Dammed if he do or don’t because of Emery

Ahh the rain. And down she came. Like a metaphorical message relating to what's happening at Arsenal right now. Not in form, not playing well, captain feels like he's been given a rough ride from a few idiots. Still, at least Unai Emery will bowl in to the press conference today, will tell everyone that [...]

Özil dictates, Martinelli excites, Emery bemuses us all – Liverpool away

How the hell do les one even begin to try to make sense of that madness last night? Utterly bonkers. Crazy. On both teams part. But, sadly, it's once again Arsenal who fall short and once again it's the manager who has a few questions to answer. Thankfully he answered the Mesut Özil question relatively [...]

Emery dodges again, as rotation is on the cards at Anfield

Another game day this evening, this time in the League Cup, but forgive me if I'm not too optimistic about the game tonight. It's at Anfield, we seem to be on our knees as a club, we've got a captain who has gone radio silent and a manager who won't actually show any leadership and [...]

The Xhaka situation shows a spineless side to Emery

It's Tuesday morning and as I speak there has been no statement from Granit Xhaka it his 'people', after his public display of displeasure at The Arsenal fans on Sunday, with plenty of people coming out and declaring that they want him to front up and say 'sorry' for his outburst. Last night we spoke [...]

Poor performances all round becoming the norm – Palace profit

So much to talk about this morning! Unfortunately, very little is positive, so whilst I'm not sure I'll get through everything in this tube journey on my way to work, I'll give it my best shot. The performanceWas turgid. Again. We got ourselves into a commanding position with two goals in the first ten minutes [...]

Fearing Crystal Palace at home – what have we become?

I wouldn't say that I'm confident ahead of Arsenal matches at the Emirates. There's always usually the butterflies and when I get into the ground the excitement builds. But I'm never overly confident. But a game like Crystal Palace at home used to be one of those where I'd be thinking "of course we can [...]

Pepe is Unai’s latest ‘get out of jail free’ card against Vitoria SC

I bet that when Unai Emery plays Monopoly with his family back home, he has a little tamper with the 'Chance' cards before they get started, because based on last night's performance against Vitoria Sporting Clube, he's a guy that loves to ride his luck. And it rides him back. As suspected he named a [...]

A shuffle for tonight’s game for Emery to expunge some of Monday’s anger

Unai's press conference yesterday saw him come out swinging with regards to criticism of him, his tactics and his team selection on Monday night. The good news for him is that there's a game this evening which gives him the opportunity to at least a little bit put the Sheffield United debacle behind his team [...]

Granit’s Bullsh*t, Arsenal’s Bullsh*t, Emery’s Bullsh*t

Granit Xhaka thinks that what Patrice Evra said on Monday night football was 'bullshit'. I think the performance of him and his teammates was bullshit. I think the energy, intensity and structure of the team on Monday was bullshit. I think the side selection and tactical set up against a newly promoted team was bullshit. [...]

Is Emery the new Bruce Rioch? Sheffield United reaction

I was 13 years old when Bruce Rioch had his solitary season in charge of The Arsenal. He had David Platt, Dennis Bergkamp, the back four that had won leagues, an Ian Wright in his prime and Paul Merson all able to do the business for him. Yet we finished fifth and just scraped in [...]
