Surround Lacazette with pace and punish Fulham in transition

Ahh man....my head hurts...four hours at the pub yesterday afternoon and a tomahawk steak for dinner and I have all the meat sweats and head pains. What I could really do with now is a bit of greasy food and then an Arsenal lunchtime win. I really don't want my brain to hurt more because [...]

Slavia Prague away: win or bust for Arteta’s Arsenal

Well now folks, this is it, pretty much, for this season, by my reckoning. Fail to perform tonight hand get a win (or a high scoring draw) and Arsenal go out to a team who have just had it confirmed that they have a racist captain and who never really offered much at The Emirates [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

By |2021-04-11T09:40:36+01:00April 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]

Arteta must shuffle the pack in the right way tonight

If somebody would have told me a month ago that this Arsenal team would be going in to a quarter final of a Europa League tie with somewhat of a crisis of confidence potentially brewing, I'd have probably have laughed it off. We'd beaten Leicester, shot ourselves in the foot against Burnley but had battered [...]

Momentum more than points for Arsenal against Liverpool

By |2021-04-03T09:25:12+01:00April 3rd, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Morning folks and here we are, finally back to a match day, thank gawd. Only it's a match day in which if we're honest probably doesn't have that much riding on it. Liverpool come to town and despite their poor form, they are still a side to be feared and we are a side who [...]

West Ham preview: take your chances when they come, Arsenal!

It's match day today and it's one that always has significance in my family, because it is where rivalries are split, given a large chunk of my family are West Ham fans. It's a little like the North London Derby because i'm not really a fan of it, but it doesn't have the same level [...]

Arsenal must keep calm and their heads against Olympiakos tonight

Match day is here and it is European football again for us this evening, although hopefully not for the last time this season, as we would like safe passage to the quarter finals please, footballing gods. We take a more commanding lead into this game compared to the same fixture against Olympiakos last season, but [...]

The fear of the North London Derby

By |2021-03-14T09:33:08+00:00March 14th, 2021|gooners, Gunners, History, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|1 Comment

Here we are. The worst day in our football calendar in my opinion: North London Derrby Day at home. I hate it. There's just so much always riding on this one, the nerves are heightened and - despite there being no fans in the stadium and therefore home advantage is pretty much negated - it [...]

Be aggressive and go for goals against Olympiakos

Morning folks and welcome to another match day, only this one is a definite match day with a lot more riding on it than most, as we face up against Olympiakos in Athens this evening. It is not only a familiar ground - having played there as our 'home' game in the last round - [...]

Arsenal must avoid the early Burnley goal at all costs today

By |2021-03-06T07:22:40+00:00March 6th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|3 Comments

Morning folks. Hope you're having a good one. I have spent the morning awake since 5.50am as The Management's decision to have a kitten is coming back to bite us. Not literally, but figuratively speaking, as the little toe rag spent the morning pulling clothes out of the washing basket and generally making a racket [...]
