Go attacking again against the Saints, Unai

Howdy folks. Match day. Best day of the week. Well, usually is, especially when it's a home game and usually I'm off to The Arsenal but this week I have a family event that prevents me from going. I'm not bitter. Much. It's a religious thing as well so I'm hoping that my sacrifice that [...]

Movement and technical vision: how Arsenal beat BATE

For a team that has spent most of the season not turning up for one half of a game - usually the first half - tonight's match against BATE Borisov feels like it needs one heck of a first half Arsenal performance to stop the nerves of cup competition knockout to set in. It seems [...]

Huddersfield preview: no pragmatism, unleash the creativity, Arsenal

A game away to Huddersfield today represents somewhat of an 'interesting' statistical impasse today it seems. Arsenal haven't kept a clean sheet all season away from home, whilst Huddersfield have failed to score in their last five matches. Huddersfield haven't picked up a win in the league since they beat Fulham at home in November. [...]

Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

Football a sideshow on a sombre evening against Cardiff

By |2019-01-29T07:18:45+01:00January 29th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, premier league, Unai Emery|1 Comment

This game will have a sadly strange feel about it today I think, what with it being the first game since Cardiff City have played, having tragically lost Emiliano Sala to that plane crash over a week ago. It's times like that in which you realise how football is just a side distraction in your [...]

Confidence from Chelski will be key, but what formation for Emery?

Match day? On a Friday you say? At any other time I'd kinda like it. I work in a London, takes me about 15 minutes on the train to get to Highbury & Islington, so I can get a few jars in with the lads. Great fun. Except The Management booked us in for tickets [...]

Playing Özil could be the difference; the wing backs are vital against Chelsea today

Happy Saturday folks. It's match day which is always a lovely old distraction and today, after what feels like a long week of turmoil and rumour, we get some actual football to sink our teeth in to. Chelski Cole to our gaff and it's weird because although it's essentially a season definer for The Arsenal, [...]

West Ham v Arsenal: attacks could be the difference

It's an early kick off today and hopefully that means an opportunity to start the weekend off on a positive note by picking up three points away to West Ham. It won't be an easy game because Pellegrini seems to have steadied what feels like a wobbly old ship since they left Upton Park and [...]

Blackpool beckons for The Arsenal, so does Suarez

Morning all. Hope you're all feeling good on the Saturday? I'm off on an away day journey to the North West to see a bit of the mighty Arsenal take on the Tangerines Blackpool in my first trip to Bloomfield Road. And I must say I'm massively looking forward to it. A couple of seasons [...]

Trying to make a case for Arsenal away to Liverpool

Howdy all. Hope the Christmas cheer is still going strong in the family and you're enjoying the festive period. All except the football that is. I mean who could watch Match of the Day when Arsenal are messing up away from home but Liverpool, the Tiny Totts, Chelski and United were all picking up wins? [...]
