Morning Gooners - happy Friday and all that jazz. Hopefully you're looking forward to the weekend and the Arsenal on Sunday? I do hate Sunday games in general. Saturday's have always been the best time to play football and Sunday just feels like a long wait, feels like you have to hang around a bit, [...]

Cagey chess match football: City v Arsenal preview

It’s the big one today and, as I suspected but didn’t say, the butterflies and nerves for this game against City later on are starting to kick in. Arsenal travel to Manchester trying to do something we haven’t managed to do in nine previous attempts in all competitions. You have to go back eight years [...]

It had to be Bayern and Kane, didn’t it?

It just had to be bloody Bayern Munich, didn't it, eh? On Thursday I wrote about my preference about who I'd like to see us play in the quarter-final and on that list Bayern finished fifth out of eight, so it almost felt inevitable that we were going to get one of the toughest opponents [...]

Who cares about who Arsenal get in the Champions League quarter final? Me, a little bit…

So last night we found out all about who our opponents could potentially be, as the last of the Champions League round of 16 games were played and it was Atleti and Dortmund who advanced to the quarter finals, which means we'll get one of: Atlético de Madrid Barcelona Bayern München Borussia Dortmund Manchester City [...]

An Arsenal fan determined to live in the moment

Happy Wednesday folks - still feeling pretty good about The Arsenal right now? I know I am. The goal difference, the defensive solidity, the form of players like Odegaard, Saka, Rice, Jorginho, etc, is all helping us to all start to feel a little more excited as we reach the real crunch point in the [...]

Are Arsenal peaking too soon?

This morning before I headed in to the office I did my usual run to get my day started and I listened to another podcast that is on my regular rotation, from the lads over at The Arsenal Opinion podcast and they got in to a discussion that I've been thinking about myself over the [...]

Porto was a good preparation for Newcastle’s antics

Morning folks - hope we're all in fine Friday form, despite the bad taste of Wednesday night's defeat. On the one hand it left a bitter taste and that's still circulating my mind, body and soul. But on the other hand we have the opportunity to expel that and replace it with the flavourful taste [...]

Arsenal have scored more and conceded less than last season – so what’s different?

By |2024-02-14T07:58:45+00:00February 14th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|0 Comments

I saw a stat this morning that Arsenal have now scored more goals and conceded less goals than at the 24 game point in the Premier League this season compared to last season. Which feels crazy and almost as if it's not true, given how we were five points better off last season. At that [...]

Realising what Arsenal are going to get on Sunday against West Ham

Morning folks. Happy Friday - hope you're all good? We did an interesting pod last night with Alan Alger and Anthony Gale (son of Tony Gale, ex-West Ham player), which was a match preview, a bit of discussion over xG and its uses, as well as the over celebration discussion that has been rumbling on [...]

The Arsenal defensive chicken or egg situation

Morning folks and happy Thursday to you and yours. I flicked on the Villa/Chelsea game last night and watched about 20 minutes of it as I was doing other stuff in the house. What a weird two teams those two are, eh? Chelsea, who looked absolutely ridiculous at the weekend at home to Wolves and [...]
