There are some universal truths in life: death, taxes and Burnley fans booing something an opposition player does even though he was in fact probably fouled. And Burnley's fans are the booiest fans you'll ever see. If there was a sweepstake on the first minute at which the Burnley fans would boo Arsenal today, I [...]

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Man City preview: All Arsenal have is hope

By |2021-08-28T09:45:44+01:00August 28th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

I don't think there's many people on this planet who could argue a case for Arsenal getting anything today. It really does feel like we have two hopes: Bob Hope and No Hope, against the Champions of England, on their home turf. There is nothing to suggest that even a draw would be possible, given [...]

Back at The Arsenal, back with the ‘fear’ – Chelski preview

I can't say I'm overly confident about today's match if I'm completely honest with you. Aubameyang aside, this will be the same side that looked so lifeless and defensively fragile as the one that started the season against Brentford, only this time, we're playing a team that has just started the season with a comprehensive [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

It's here! Finally! the end to this dreaded season! Hoorah! Like when you're in the waiting room at the dentist and it feels like they are extending your discomfort out of some kind of sadistic pleasure, the Premier League season can finally be put to bed after today's round of matches. For Arsenal it represents [...]

Wait, what? Arsenal are playing Palace tonight??

Do you know what's really weird? It's match day today and yet over the last 24/48 hours I keep forgetting Arsenal are playing Crystal Palace tonight. It goes to show just how much this season is paling into insignificance already. Part of me thinks it's a good thing, because I'm not going to get worked [...]

Chelski v Arsenal: just three games left until it can all be over

By |2021-05-12T07:31:06+01:00May 12th, 2021|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

It's match day. Yay... I'm sorry folks, I'm finding it tough to really get 'up' for this game at Stamford Bridge away to Chelski tonight. They have Champions League Football to play for, we have the slimmest of hopes of a potential place in the UEFA CONFERENCE LEAGUE, in which the name itself is as [...]

Villareal and Emery will look to hit Arsenal on the counter

Well folks, this feels like it could be pretty much it tonight, what it all boils down to and should the worst happen this evening and we sh*t the bed against Unai Emery's Villareal then the season is essentially finished in all but name. It feels like last chance saloon for Mikel and his charges [...]
