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 [...]

Laca’s loss is Nelson’s gain – can he deliver?

So, boys and girls, what did we learn from yesterday's pre-match presser with Unai Emery ahead of the travel to Watford on Sunday? Well, for one thing, we're going to be missing Alexandre Lacazette for the game, plus for the rest of September, which also rules him out of that game at Old Trafford in [...]

Returning Arsenal defenders need to cut out individual errors from team

Still nothing from Unai on the ol' team update but, with it being Friday and the last weekday available for him to say some words, it'll not doubt come out at some stage today. It's unusual because it's an away game, but for the players and managers who all live around the Cockfosters/London Colney area, [...]

Nacho’s sad admission; international football’s confidence concerns

Nacho Monreal leaving us to go back to Spain was greeted with a lot more respect and acceptance than the poor way in which Laurent Koscielny left the club earlier in the transfer window. It was seen that he'd been professional right up until the last and whilst that certainly appears to be the case, [...]

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 [...]
