Arsenal must crack the tough Crystal Palace nut

It's Crystal Palace at home today and it is the type of game that four or five years ago I'd be pretty confident about us getting a win. But last season and this has pretty much dented any of that "we're The Arsenal, we win this game today" mindset that I had developed over a [...]

How much does Arteta rotate Arsenal for tonight’s FA Cup game against Newcastle?

It's a little bit of a later one from me today, on account of a host of jobs i've had to do, but just before I pop out for a run I thought I'd pen some musings because it is FA Cup third round day and we've got ourselves a 5.30pm kick off on BBC [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Arsenal must break the Brighton hoodoo

Welcome to another match day folks and this, I have to say, has always been a frustrating one for me. Brighton and Hove Albion entertain us at 6pm on their turf and it’s been quite an unhappy hunting ground for us recently. Last season they shafted us in the last minute with a sucker punch [...]

Arsenal approaching Chelski like a small club underdog

Boxing Day and match day. There was a time where I’d be pretty excited to have a bit of The Arsenal on at Christmas, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m not feeling overly confident and given that it’s been literally months since we won a Premier League game, the prospect of beating Chelski seems [...]

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, [...]

Arsenal will win tonight – believe it

Morning folks. This is my first blog for weeks. I took some time away and decided that Arsenal was causing me too much discomfort and so I avoided watching a few matches, checked scores at the end, that sort of thing. But I couldn't completely stay away and watched the Southampton game in full and, [...]

High press and avoid the counter: the blueprint for victor over Wolves

By |2020-11-29T09:56:13+00:00November 29th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Iiiiiiiiit’s matchday! Always a day that is both exciting and terrifying because in 12 hours time we’ll know that Arsenal have either buggered up another opportunity to get points on the board, or they’ll have made this weekend a heck of a lot better by beating Wolves. But in order to do that it feels [...]

Pepe’s Arsenal redemption tonight against Molde?

By |2020-11-26T08:08:48+00:00November 26th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Europa League, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Morning all. It's another matchday and, I have to tell you I never thought i'd say this, but the Europa League represents some welcome respite from what has become the monotony of our domestic campaign. We are away to Molde in the group stages and tonight's game this evening represents an opportunity to try to [...]

Arteta needs to inject pace into Arsenal attack against Leeds

I believe I have some very real fears and trepidation about today’s game at Elland Road. The preparation the Arsenal players have had in the build up to this hasn’t been ideal, with injuries, COVID and the form of some of our players, plus I have some bad memories of defeats going up there I [...]
