Much like the last game we played - Leicester in the Carabao Cup - tonight's game is a weird one for me because it really doesn't feel like a game in which we should worry too much about. I mean obviously it's a big game and I'm sure i'll be nervous by the time kick [...]

Arteta needs to ‘rope-a-dope’ against Rodgers’ press tonight

By |2020-09-23T08:20:35+01:00September 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, League Cup, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

Morning all and welcome to another matchday, at the beginning of what is a very tough month's worth of fixtures, starting with Leicester City away in the Carabao Cup this evening. It's a game in which I don't think there's been a full press conference due to the timings, but Mikel did spend a little [...]

West Ham preview: excitement over Arteta’s selection headaches

By |2020-09-19T09:00:47+01:00September 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Matchday! Get in! These are some of the best ones of the season for me because: 1. There’s still the excitement of how this season is going to pan out. 2. You haven’t been fatigued by the volume of games, often made worse if Arsenal are terrible, or the season has deflated like an old [...]

Arsenal must silence potential Mitrovic/Knockheart partnership today

Iiiiiiiiiiit's MATCHDAY! Yep, I'm excited, despite all of my cynicism about the Project Restart, despite the fact we still don't quite have the balance right in midfield (as Mikel alluded to in his press conference yesterday), as well as the fact that we have a mountain of injuries already. I'm still so excited to see [...]

Arteta and Arsenal’s midfield test at the Community Shield today

Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]

Nothing silly in the FA Cup Final today, Arsenal

By |2020-08-01T10:39:57+01:00August 1st, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

It’s cup final day and I am a very nervous man. Today’s game isn’t just the last game of the season, it isn’t just about a shiny silver trinket, it is also a financially and footballisticly significant crossroads the club finds itself in. I so desperately want us to win the FA Cup today. But [...]

Rotation a must, but a few goals and a win is also essential against Villa

By |2020-07-21T08:01:54+01:00July 21st, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Wolves' win yesterday against a pathetic and hapless Crystal Palace - already on the beach (and how the hell did they pick up two draws against us? Oh yeah, VAR...) and not fussed either way - means that the chances of Arsenal qualifying for Europe via the league are reliant on so many permutations going [...]

Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

By |2020-07-15T08:10:35+01:00July 15th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]

I hate North London Derby Day – don’t make it worse Arsenal

By |2020-07-12T09:41:47+01:00July 12th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's the worst day in the footballing calendar for me personally, today is, as we travel away to Sh*ite Hart Lane to face that horrible lot round the corner in the North London Derby. I've always hated this fixture. Nerves, bragging rights, the fear of defeat and having to face all of the idiots at [...]

Arsenal must use the flanks well and be prepared for the Leicester counter

By |2020-07-07T08:01:45+01:00July 7th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Another matchday is here and it’s ‘Part II’ of our Death Run as we come up against Leicester City at The Emirates this evening. This game is an intriguing one - and just as terrifying as the Wolves one - because of the way in which Leicester battered us on their turf earlier in the [...]
