Arteta’s faith in the wrong players will get him sacked – Man City review

In isolation this game is a bit of a 'meh' one that you can just put in a box and move on with your life. Man City win this competition every year, they are miles better than us, they have players who will punish teams very easily. But the problem we have at the moment [...]

Just compete tonight, Arsenal

Tonight Arsenal play Man City in the League Cup and surely I’m not alone in thinking: Meh. I mean sure, I want Arsenal to win and sure, it would be great for morale, but with a few players out through injury and a hectic Christmas period that will see us play Chelski on Boxing Day, [...]

Grubby Arsenal performance is enough to beat Liverpool

By |2020-10-02T08:42:49+01:00October 2nd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Defence, League Cup, Match Review|0 Comments

Morning all. Perhaps a slightly provocative headline for today's blog, but waking up this morning and just before I went to bed last night, that's what went through my mind when I tried to give the overall game some kind of one sentence analysis. Arsenal progressed through to the next round of the Carabao Cup [...]

Professional Arsenal progress against Leicester City in the Cup

By |2020-09-24T07:42:03+01:00September 24th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, League Cup, Match Review, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Another win, another game in which we can take confidence from the team performance, another match in which Arteta is making his mark on this Arsenal team and we can all be happy about the fact that last night Arsenal progressed to the next round of the Carabao Cup. Even if the likelihood is another [...]

Arteta needs to ‘rope-a-dope’ against Rodgers’ press tonight

By |2020-09-23T08:20:35+01:00September 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, League Cup, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

Morning all and welcome to another matchday, at the beginning of what is a very tough month's worth of fixtures, starting with Leicester City away in the Carabao Cup this evening. It's a game in which I don't think there's been a full press conference due to the timings, but Mikel did spend a little [...]

Well, it's a good job that Arsenal made a signing yesterday, becasue I got my dates muddled up and thought we were playing Leicester City tonight in the Carabao Cup! Welcome to Icelandic goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson to The Arsenal! The 25-year-old joins us from Dijon where he had fallen down the pecking order behind [...]

Atletico’s Torreira interest should make life easier for Arsenal

Morning folks and welcome to another week. It's a busy one for the Arsenal this week, as we face off against both Leicester and Liverpool away from home in both League Cup and Premier League, so there'll be plenty to chew over in the coming days. But not only that, it also feels like the [...]

Özil dictates, Martinelli excites, Emery bemuses us all – Liverpool away

How the hell do les one even begin to try to make sense of that madness last night? Utterly bonkers. Crazy. On both teams part. But, sadly, it's once again Arsenal who fall short and once again it's the manager who has a few questions to answer. Thankfully he answered the Mesut Özil question relatively [...]

Emery dodges again, as rotation is on the cards at Anfield

Another game day this evening, this time in the League Cup, but forgive me if I'm not too optimistic about the game tonight. It's at Anfield, we seem to be on our knees as a club, we've got a captain who has gone radio silent and a manager who won't actually show any leadership and [...]

Liverpool a good test for the youth; Emery’s “meritocracy” isn’t showing

By |2019-09-26T07:19:39+01:00September 26th, 2019|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, premier league, Unai Emery, youth|0 Comments

So it appears as though our reward for a comprehensive victory over Nottingham Forest is an away trip to Anfield for the fourth round of the League Cup in October. After the scousers youth team overcame MK Dons we were drawn against them and, weirdly, I'm kind of glad we are. Not because I think [...]
