Grind out a win today, Arsenal

It's Burnley, it's at home, they've had plenty of rest and we've had both the physical and mental hit that the game against Liverpool did to us on Thursday last week. But Arsenal cannot feel sorry for itself today, we simply cannot afford it, if we want this season to be one in which we [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Forest away – Arsenal must control the narrative and quieten the crowd

Morning folks and welcome to matchday. It is one of my most favourite match days of the year actually; FA Cup third round day. A chance to travel to a ground that you don't often go to and for me I haven't been to the City Ground, so a new one to tick off the [...]

Pepe and Nketiah to get a shot against Norwich?

It’s match day and a Boxing Day one in which Arsenal face a struggling Norwich side who currently sit bottom of the league having picked up two wins and four draws all season. They have found it struggling even since Dean Smith took over and even have a fair few injury and COVID problems today, [...]

Arsenal must be more direct to beat the Leeds high press

By |2021-12-18T09:16:52+00:00December 18th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This feels a little weird this morning because I'm writing a pre match preview of the game later on today between Leeds and The Arsenal, without really being 100% confident as to whether it will actually be going ahead, what with all of the COVID-19 problems causing matches left, right and centre to be cancelled [...]

How will this Arsenal team react to the Auba situation against West Ham?

In classic 'Curse of Chris' fashion after saying yesterday that Arsenal, Arteta and Aubameyang needed to sort out the situation between them quickly and quietly, it all blew up yesterday, didn't it? We got the confirmation that Aubameyang would not be captain, that he would not be available for the game against West Ham, plus [...]

The Aubameyang problem rears its head ahead of Southampton game

It's match day and whilst the focus should be on who are the best and fittest players available to be selected today to try to get us back on track and winning at home to Southampton, unfortunately we are once again dealing with some problems in the Arsenal camp, or at least what looks like [...]

Is a youthful and high intensity attack the way forward tonight?

Tottenahm, West Ham and Man United all won this weekend, which brings in to focus exactly what is needed from Mikel Arteta's side tonight as we face an Everton team who have had some injuries, some poor run of form, but haven't lost at home to us in four years. Last season we lost 2-1 [...]

Arsenal must win the battle out wide against Man United

I feel rather apprehensive about tonight's game. It's old wounds you see. I remember when United were a bit of a joke under Moyes just after Fergie left and they beat us on their patch and got a 0-0 at our gaff after we utterly battered them with De Gea having essentially the game of [...]
