Lacazette’s transgressions; Chambers benefitting from everyone lockdown?

Morning folks. Happy Monday and all that jazz. In London it's going to be a sunny week so at least that's something worth being pleased about whilst so many of us are still cooped up at home. It's been trying for all of us and we've all been wanting to get out and do different [...]

Seeking advice from my Dani Ceballos wall calendar

I'm on day three of my 'work from home' lockdown and today's mission was to go to Sainsbury's over the road and buy two anti-bacterial soaps. We have just run out in our en-suite and there's another running low and unlike so many knobs out there, I'm not contributing to the panic that has set [...]

We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

More injury questions for Arteta and Arsenal

You've got to love our collective optimism as Arsenal fans, followed by the 'edge of a cliff' melancholy, that comes as a result of Arsenal doing something slightly differently and out of the norm with the usual regime. I am, of course, talking about the press conference that took place yesterday. Arsenal's pre-game pressers are [...]

The importance of that Edu/Arteta relationship is massive

Morning friends and happy Saturday to you. It's an FA Cup weekend and in my opinion it's the best FA Cup weekend - cup final day aside if you're in it - of all of the round. It's the one in which all the Premier League teams feature, there's a shedload of games going on, [...]

Some good, some bad, some awful (refereeing decisions) – Arsenal v Chelsea

I'm still trying to work out how I feel about yesterday's defeat to Chelski on our own patch. I mean, obviously I'm annoyed, but it feels like it's tempered somewhat with some of the situations that occurred during the match. Last night I lay in bed and at one point I was both pissed off [...]

Arsenal fans show players how it’s done – Man City review

The only 'non-depressing' thing about yesterday's 3-0 defeat at home to Man City yesterday was the act of defiance that came at the end of the game. Not by the players of course and not by Mesut Özil who displayed more energy kicking a water bottle than for the rest of the game (although all [...]

Torreira to outlast Unai Emery?

As if things can't feel like they seem any more farcical right now, we found out yesterday that Lucas Torreira wants talks with the manager because he is not happen with his current situation or his role in the Arsenal team, which to most of us is a 'well, duh' kind of moment really. That's [...]
