What was Thursday's objective has now been shifted to tonight, with it feeling like the season pretty much rests on what this young Arsenal team does tonight at St James' Park. With the Scum bundling their way over the line at home to Burnley with yet another penalty, it moves them two points clear of [...]

The longest day ever – North London Derby Day

Here we are folks. This has felt like a ridiculously long week for me, excruciatingly so, but we've arrived at the worst day of the football calendar in my opinion: North London Derby Day - away from home. At home it's a horrible feeling of nerves, but that is tempered somewhat by our record at [...]

No excuses for Lethargy from Arsenal today against West Ham

Happy Sunday and Happy match day Gooners. It's a bank holiday here in the UK so it's one of those weird Sunday's that actually sort of feel like a Saturday, but they are still a Sunday, so you half feel lazy and half feel like you should be doing your Saturday chores. Except they're already [...]

Man United preview: Arsenal should not underestimate the danger

There should not be a single Arsenal player, member of the coaching staff, or fan, that underestimates the difficulty of today's home game against Man United this lunchtime. This will be a tough game, make no mistake. Firstly, United will be hurting after the absolute tonking they got at Liverpool. That's a fixture those lot [...]

Gut feel for a good Arsenal performance tonight?

I'll be honest with you today folks, because I am really torn about tonight's game. On the one hand logic dictates that it is very difficult to make a case for Arsenal away at Chelski. They smashed Southampton 6-0 where we laboured to a 1-0 defeat. They have a bigger and better squad than us [...]

Arsenal must change the approach and personnel to counter Southampton’s high press

I had a nervousness before the Crustal Palace game that belied the form that Arsenal had going in to it. I was nervous ahead of the Brighton game that belied the terrible form Brighton were in. I am nervous ahead of this game which belies the fact Southampton took an absolute pasting last weekend and [...]

Palace no pushover as Arsenal face pressure tonight

If any Arsenal fan was expecting to get any kind of good news from both Everton or Newcastle yesterday and feeling confident after Saturday's 'fun' results, then they were brought back down to earth yesterday, as West Ham overcame an Everton side who with every passing week look more terrible, making our defeat to them [...]

Saka the key man against Villa today

Am super nervous about today, lads and lasses, super nervous indeed. Whereas I accepted the reality and realism of the defeat to Liverpool both prior and post the game itself, this one feels like there's much more pressure on the team, oddly enough. It feels like we need to get something from this game and [...]

Arsenal must stop the full back pressure from Liverpool

The way in which I try to temper my own intensity and nervousness over a football game is usually to start at the lowest base point and work upwards. What I mean by that is that in my head, if I start at the point in which my expectations are that we will lose and [...]
