Another uninspiring Arsenal performance at Leicester – is Emery still here?

Sometimes I feel like I write about Arsenal out of some kind of habitual nature, because if I'm completely honest with you, I really don't feel that motivated to do it this morning. Yet here I am, Sunday morning, tapping away at my iPhone trying to make sense of what is going on at Arsenal [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]

Another boring game. Pull the trigger on Emery, Arsenal, please.

How many of us are surprised with the performance yesterday? I bet there are few. Unai Emery and his team absolutely 100% needed a win and after scoring a goal in the first half and weathering a storm from Wolves, it looked like we were trying to hold out for a one-niller, but the deserved [...]

Özil dictates, Martinelli excites, Emery bemuses us all – Liverpool away

How the hell do les one even begin to try to make sense of that madness last night? Utterly bonkers. Crazy. On both teams part. But, sadly, it's once again Arsenal who fall short and once again it's the manager who has a few questions to answer. Thankfully he answered the Mesut Özil question relatively [...]

Poor performances all round becoming the norm – Palace profit

So much to talk about this morning! Unfortunately, very little is positive, so whilst I'm not sure I'll get through everything in this tube journey on my way to work, I'll give it my best shot. The performanceWas turgid. Again. We got ourselves into a commanding position with two goals in the first ten minutes [...]

Pepe is Unai’s latest ‘get out of jail free’ card against Vitoria SC

I bet that when Unai Emery plays Monopoly with his family back home, he has a little tamper with the 'Chance' cards before they get started, because based on last night's performance against Vitoria Sporting Clube, he's a guy that loves to ride his luck. And it rides him back. As suspected he named a [...]

Is Emery the new Bruce Rioch? Sheffield United reaction

I was 13 years old when Bruce Rioch had his solitary season in charge of The Arsenal. He had David Platt, Dennis Bergkamp, the back four that had won leagues, an Ian Wright in his prime and Paul Merson all able to do the business for him. Yet we finished fifth and just scraped in [...]

Fun in the shower for Arsenal’s rotated team against Forest

Well now wasn't that a bit of fun to watch last night? It didn't matter that it was bucketing it down because for those that made the trip to The Emirates last night they were treated to a goal-fest and some great performances from some of those rotated players. In fact I'd say that there [...]

Aubameyang to the rescue as selection questions arise for Emery

Last night I had a funky old dream. I dreamt that I was having dinner with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. He was in fine form having just bagged the winning goal against Aston Villa during the day, but annoyingly I wasn't alone to just chat foot all with him. A load of work colleagues were there and [...]

An Arsenal win in Frankfurt: not the perfect performance, but the perfect tonic

It's Friday, our last game is now no longer the disastrous performance at Watford, we have our first win in the Europa League and it was done away to what I think is the best team in the group that we will face. There's also the added benefit of a couple of young players really [...]
