Auba’s day as we sign off with win at Burnley

Well that's that then. We finally bring an end to this domestic season and whilst I'm not as glad to see the back of it as last year, it's not really ended the way I'd have hoped. In fact, the last few weeks have been pretty turgid domestically and whilst we still have an outside [...]

Domestic bottle job complete with pathetic draw to Brighton

Well, yesterday was a total shambles, eh? Although there was an outside chance we might be able to qualify for Champions League yesterday, those Arsenal players contrived to blow it, picking up just one point against a Brighton team who literally had nothing to play for, had probably spent the night partying and would have [...]

Auba changes the complexion of semi final

I thought last night's game against Valencia worked out well in the end, considering where we were on the 12th minute, a goal down and looking as ropey as ever at the back. But let's give some credit to 'home team Arsenal' - a very different proposition to 'away team Arsenal' - because they bounced [...]

Leicester: that’s top four out for Arsenal’s bottlers

Let's not hide behind any kind of faux injustice brought about by Ainsley Maitland-Niles' sending off in the first half yesterday: this Arsenal team was probably defeated before it even took to the field. Nine goals conceded in three games against three opponents who have nothing to play for other than some additional points on [...]

Arsenal are psychologically broken; Wolves showed it

They say that time is a healer, yet here I am about 16 hours after the diabolical performance at Molineux, still stewing on what was quite frankly an unacceptable Arsenal performance. I find myself with that one sentence - the title of today's blog - that keeps ringing in my mind and it brings me [...]

Palace profit from comical Arsenal

Sadly I had a feeling we were due a performance from Arsenal at home like we got yesterday. Lethargic, leggy and lackadaisical with some absolutely comical defending that really gifted Palace all three points yesterday. Unai Emery rotates once again and I'm came Jenkinson, Mavropanos and Mustafi in defence, followed by a midfield duo of [...]

Arsenal make it a good Friday with professional victory over Napoli

For both of these two legs against Napoli i haven't really felt nervous at all, aside from a quick pang of butterflies in the stomach about two minutes before kick off yesterday, but even that went away after I saw how Arsenal had set up and how Unai has instructed his players to play. In [...]

Points first, performance a very far second, against Watford

Life as an Arsenal fan, eh? Before the game we had excitement. The team was left of field as Unai has done to us all season; it was exciting and with Mavropanos in, a midfield including Xhaka and Torreira, with Ramsey providing energy in front of them, this felt perfect for a Watford side who [...]

Controlled and composed Arsenal do the job against Napoli

That was hella fun last night. There are plenty of people on the socials this morning talking about how we looked to drop a bit in the second half, that it was a bit nervy and I don't know why, but I just had complete confidence that we were going to win last night and [...]
