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 [...]

Familiar faces at Newcastle tomorrow for Arsenal

Happy Saturday folks and welcome to the start of the new season. Even though Arsenal don't play until tomorrow I'm still happy it's here and after feeling like I could go a good six months without any football after the travesty that was the Europa League final, here I am, back again and raring to [...]

Arsenal have 48 hours to shuffle the defensive pack

You can tell it's getting closer to the start of a new season because last night I had a dream about Arsenal. There was a mix up at Premier League HQ and we needed up playing West Ham at home on the first game of the season. They didn't tell anybody though and so nobody [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

Boring cup finals and scary European ones

A quick one on Man City before I go in to the Arsenal spiel as usual today; their victory confirming the first ever domestic treble was certainly warranted. They are the best team this season by a mile and you have to respect the squad of players and Pep Guardiola for achieving the feat. However, [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]

An away goal (or lack of) could be essential tonight for Arsenal’s cup hopes

Here we are folks. This game this evening represents - in my opinion - one of the most important in the season for these Arsenal players. That's because our horrendous away form invariably means that we are going to struggle at the Mestalla and so unless we win - and win well - tonight, I [...]
