Midfield is key against City

By |2019-02-03T10:14:52+01:00February 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 [...]

Festive fixtures frighten me – no slip ups from Arsenal

Happy Christmas Eve to you all and despite the fact Leicester did us a favour on Saturday, clearly it was too much to ask Everton not to be a complete shambles against Tottenham yesterday. You watch, when we go to Goodison they'll suddenly turn in to Pep's Barcelona, as opposed to the walking crash that [...]

Burnley are here to frustrate – we need Mesut today

Three weeks ago I was looking at this fixture as an opportunity for Arsenal to potentially continue a good run, to be chasing down the couple of teams ahead of us, to be looking up and wondering whether we'll sneak in to that fourth spot. It's amazing what a week of football can do at [...]

Selection conundrum for Emery with Southampton and the Tiny Totts in mind

Happy Sunday folks. Hope all is well with you lot? For me it was a day off from blogging yesterday, on account of it be a Christmas party on Friday, but back in the saddle today, hoping the boys are up for it and we can get ourselves three points against Southampton this lunchtime. It [...]
