Sigh. Double sigh. That's it for our domestic cup campaigns and we find ourselves out of them both within the space of two weeks. It is frustrating, but for some reason, I am reeling even more than I thought I would this morning. I think it is because in my mind I'd built up this [...]

Should Arteta switch the formation up against Liverpool?

Blimey. Talk about so much #content you don't know where to even start, eh? Yesterday we got Mikel Arteta's press conference and there were some spicy and fantastic words said by the manager. Then we had wind of a bid from a Saudi Arabian team for Aubameyang. That was followed by the rumours of betting [...]

How much do Arsenal NEED the League Cup to start an era?

You know when you have those dreams that feel so real, that you wake up in the morning, then you feel an emotion based on that dream that is really strong? It could be positive or negative. Well, I had an Arsenal one of those last night, about the League Cup game against Liverpool. Unfortunately [...]

Pride from a resolute Arsenal performance against Liverpool

This will most likely be a very short ‘check in’ post today, because it was the wife’s birthday yesterday and so a) I didn’t watch the game yesterday as we had a family meal, and b) I’m blogging on my phone for about 10 minutes before we have to drive home. But by all accounts [...]

Keep it respectable, Arsenal

It's game day and I don't think I've ever been as in the dark over how Arsenal might line up tonight for the semi final of the League Cup, as I have for this evenings game against Victim FC/Cheat FC, given our current problems. Question marks are hanging over whether Granit Xhaka has come out [...]

This young Arsenal side must take the next step

Morning and happy Wednesday to you wonderful people. I don't know about you but this week has absolutely flown by for me and as two big games loom on the horizon in the space of four games from tomorrow, the nerves are starting to kick in. So too is the realisation that by Monday things [...]

League Cup should be a focus; there are others out there than Vlahovic

Morning all and welcome to Tuesday. Now, I feel like I've gone on a little bit about the League Cup situation and the postponement lately, so after today I am hoping that I don't bother to bring it up unless talking about the actual football context, but I do feel compelled to do a little [...]

How does Arteta rotate in the next 10 days and what should we do about Lacazette?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday. Been a long ol' slog this week, I have to say, so has it been the same for you? Have you just jumped straight back in to the swing of work or have you counted down until the weekend like me? What hasn't helped was the lack of football [...]

Transparency in football is gone; from the EFL to FA…

We should be playing the first of a two-legged semi final in the League Cup against Liverpool this evening. But for reasons that - as I mentioned yesterday - are increasingly murky, it has been postponed to 20th January, in two week's from today. The EFL - chaired by Merseyside-born former Liverpool Chairman Rick Parry [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Wednesday. I started back up with my work yesterday and although I enjoy my job, there's nothing worse than that first day back and remembering you can't just eat, drink and be merry all the time like over the Christmas period. But the upside of this first week back for [...]
