The fear I have if we have our young connectors out against Slavia Prague

By |2021-04-14T07:43:02+01:00April 14th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Europa League, injuries, Mikel Arteta, press conference|0 Comments

And now we play the waiting game....That game of course is every Arsenal fan collectively holding our breaths as we wait patiently for either the club, or Arteta, to give us an idea on who is fit and who isn't ahead of a massive game against Slavia Prague tomorrow night. He'll have to tell us [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

By |2021-04-11T09:40:36+01:00April 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]

Arteta must shuffle the pack in the right way tonight

If somebody would have told me a month ago that this Arsenal team would be going in to a quarter final of a Europa League tie with somewhat of a crisis of confidence potentially brewing, I'd have probably have laughed it off. We'd beaten Leicester, shot ourselves in the foot against Burnley but had battered [...]

Implosion and regression at the worst time of the season for The Arsenal

Yesterday I wrote that I didn't really feel too fussed about the game, that it didn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things and in terms of the physical result, I certainly feel the same in the cold light of day today after that abysmal home capitulation against Liverpool last night. But what [...]

Praying for the safe return of Odegaard and Saka

Ahh the international breaks - as I like to call them - "time off from football". I have never held any interest whatsoever in these ghastly mid-season periods of pointlessness and whilst some people do indeed get rather excitable over matches played for their chosen country/country of birth, until a major tournament I just couldn't [...]

Momentum, injuries and Balogun – a few Arteta press conference thoughts

Morning folks, hope you're all good, albeit rather chilly if you're in the UK like I am. My soft desk-jockey exterior wasn't cut out for anything other than mild incremental weather and so the fact that it is in the minus here in London isn't exactly conducive to me being at my most productive. So [...]

Arsenal and injuries: we can’t have nice things

By |2021-02-12T07:53:45+00:00February 12th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

Ahh balls. Big sh*tty balls. Thomas Partey has a hamstring strain. Are we not allowed nice things? Is that what it is? Isn't it the most Arsenal thing ever to sign a player with no history of injury (I sent the link around of his record on Transfermarkt record after the Tottenham game and on [...]

Saliba situation could spell more work for Arsenal in the summer

Happy Tuesday folks. Well, as happy as it can be when you're locked away at home under lockdown, or a variant of depending on where you live, with Arsenal also losing games adding to the general malaise. And drama. Let's not forget drama, because it doesn't seem to be a day going by without there [...]

Luiz, Tierney and Arsenal controlling themselves

By |2021-02-05T08:42:43+00:00February 5th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|1 Comment

Morning all. It's Friday and I'm still irked about what happened on Tuesday night. What about you? I suppose some of that also has to do with the fact that yesterday early evening the FA released a statement to say that David Luiz's appeal for his red card was ignored. I don't think any of [...]

Taking a point and keeping the run: Arsenal and United share the spoils

You can't win 'em all. Sometimes you have to accept that and yesterday's draw against United, whilst being at home, was definitely one that I'd say "I'll take that" given the circumstances. And those circumstances were that we had a number of injuries, we faced a side who have picked up lots of points and [...]
