Morning peeps. Happy match day to thee and thine kin. Hopefully it’s an Arsenal-victory flavoured one. A fourth win on the bounced would be rather delicious and tonight provides that opportunity with a home second leg against Olympiakos. We did half of the job in Greece with the late Lacazette strike and with the Greek’s [...]

There is a match day to be had today folks and much like Tyson Fury on his journey to achieve his objectives and be the best, this is another hurdle that this Arsenal team must overcome if we want to claw our way up the table and build confidence to fight for titles and trophies. [...]

I’ve got that song in my head from Home Alone 2. You know the one “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” by Johnny Mathis? Yep, that one, only I’ve replaced some of the words to create a new version circling my brain on repeat: It’s the most wonderful time, of the week.... Yes [...]

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]

Silence booey Burnley by a quick start, Arsenal

Morning all and welcome to match day. Have sampled the delights of a  Saturday 3pm kick off a couple weekend's ago, we've had it whipped away from us with another Sunday game, this time with an away trip to Burnley kicking off at 2pm this afternoon. Ahh Burnley, with the 'booiest' fans in the Premier [...]

A full strength team for Arteta away to Bournemouth?

Yesterday I was far too hanging to be able to tap away at my computer. Had I have been then I'd have most likely talked about Pablo Mari, who is set to become our first signing, after being spotted on Saturday night at Heathrow airport with Edu. It's a deal that brings in a centre [...]

Arsenal have a ‘free hit’ away at Chelsea tonight

On Saturday morning I was uber positive about Arsenal getting the result and all three points against Sheffield United at home. I thought that despite injuries, suspensions and recent misfortune on VAR, we'd manage to grab ourselves some precious points on our own turf. Unfortunately I hadn't bargained on the fact that the footballing gods [...]

We’re beating Sheffield United today. I feel it.

I don't know why but I have an unusually positive feeling about today's game. I'm not usually the positive one and when we do the radio on Monday night's on LoveSport I'm usually the one to pour cold water on our chances of victory, but for some reason, I just 'feel' like we're going to [...]

Arsenal need to be compact between the lines to beat Crystal Palace

Morning folks from a relatively wet Belfast, in which I'm treating The Management to a birthday weekend away to see the giant's causeway. It means I'm not sure if I'll get time to watch The Arsenal but I'll have to see if I can find a pub to watch it in at some stage I'm [...]

Possession-based Leeds might work well for Arsenal tonight

Matchday on a Monday is becoming a far more regular thing than I'd have liked it to have been, if I'm completely honest and with all of the other FA Cup round fixtures now having been played, we'll be learning our fate before a ball is kicked. That is of course assuming we can get [...]
