Welbeck’s return probably isn’t great news for Suarez

I had a few drinks last night and bleurgh, i'm feeling a little worse for wear, i have to tell you. But I wasn't drunk enough to watch England last night and despite the fact they smashed Czech Republic I can't get too excited about a team captained by The Crayon-eating Dribbler up top. Sorry. [...]

Returning injuries give Emery food for Europa League thought

By |2019-02-13T11:18:48+00:00February 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, injuries, press conference|1 Comment

I guess one of the benefits of the new job I have is that because I often have to do early morning calls my commute into London is a little later than in my previous role. That's a benefit from a blog perspective because it means I'm writing today's instalment having just seen the team [...]

Awkward Arsenal still unconvincing despite needed win against Huddersfield

Rule number one for any football fan is to win the match. In the late eighties and early nineties other teams mocked 'boring boring Arsenal' but we didn't care. We made defending an art form. When we went one nil up we were like an Italian side who were rarely broken at our peak. And [...]

Midfield is key against City

By |2019-02-03T10:14:52+00:00February 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Formation, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

What are Emery’s Arsenal? Man United review

Morning all. I must admit I didn't actually go to the game last night and when I checked my phone after i'd finished what I was doing in the evening, I feel like I dodged a bit of a bullet, because it was a familiar story against United on our home soil. It's what happens [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal do the business against Chelsea

I love it the day after a big game win comes around and yesterday's 2-0 victory over Chelski really perked us up after a week or two of some pretty sad looking Arsenal faces everywhere. Uni Emery has faced his first bit of questioning from fans in recent weeks and the disappointment over the omission [...]

Full fitness at Arsenal: Unai – play your best team!

We have a load of fit players again! It's some sort of miracle! We can field 'actual' players in their natural positions on Saturday! What a thrill! Let's be honest, it's been long enough though, because for the last month and a bit we've patched up the team as injury and suspension kicked in and [...]

Trying to make a case for Arsenal away to Liverpool

Howdy all. Hope the Christmas cheer is still going strong in the family and you're enjoying the festive period. All except the football that is. I mean who could watch Match of the Day when Arsenal are messing up away from home but Liverpool, the Tiny Totts, Chelski and United were all picking up wins? [...]

Brighton showed we’re creaking; new blood needed

Howdy folks. Was travelling yesterday so I didn't really have much time to compile thoughts on the Brighton game but really, how many people want to read about the dross that we were served up on the south coast though? It was pretty turgid stuff throughout and even though we drew with Brighton, it felt [...]

Rotation of the front three is the only question Emery has against Brighton

Morning folks. Happy Boxing Day and also more importantly happy match day! This is a big one today because this Arsenal team is creaking under the weight of injuries and with a possible eight players missing from the first team, we're at a time in the season when the games come thick and fast and [...]
