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 [...]

Watford capitulation should raise questions about Emery

Yesterday's second half capitulation by Arsenal has once again raised more questions than given answers and, sadly, the questions aren't really overly positive. That's because what we fans witnessed yesterday was a team of mentally bereft idiots gift a two-goal lead to a side bottom of the league and who about a mont ago got [...]

Sokratis and Xhaka cost Arsenal three North London Derby points

The morning after the afternoon before. It's post-North London Derby day and whilst a draw at home against them isn't in itself the worst result in the world, we're probably all wondering "what could have been" had we had some senior players in our team who kept their heads screwed on properly yesterday. We all [...]

Luiz’s idiocy makes matters worse at Anfield

When we signed David Luiz from Chelski I think most of us immediately thought about his marauding ways, or his long ball distribution, I know I certainly did. But yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool brought back the other, more frustrating part to his game, which is the mindless stupidity that he sometimes delivers. Firstly the [...]

Ceballos and Willock impress as we get 3 points against a physical Burnley

Well, that was an interesting lunchtime spent yesterday afternoon, wasn't it? Actually, probably not, because like Arsenal like to do I chipped off most of the fingernails I had with my teeth in the last ten minutes or so. It's not that we were massively troubled and it's not like Burnley were overly quality, but [...]

Job done for young Arsenal side at Newcastle

I know there Will be those out there saying "it's only Newcastle" and given that Newcastle are in a bit of turmoil themselves I know it was hardly the most difficult of starts for us to kick off our campaign yesterday afternoon in the north east, but I was delighted with yesterday's win in so [...]

Stuttering youth performance against Angers

So we have ourselves enough leaked news and people (like the Lille chairman) talking about Nicolas Pepe's move to The Arsenal, that we know it's happening, we just haven't had it confirmed yet. No doubt the game against Angers was an overriding factor in the announcement not happening. Arsenal had enough stuff to talk about [...]

Some positives from youth but that Arsenal back line terrifies me

So we had the Emirates Cup yesterday in which Lyon eventually beating us from coming two goals behind (one of which looking like it certainly had more than a whiff of offside about it) and as a result there were a few Gooners who sadly couldn't see a victory on home soil before the important [...]

Madness against Madrid; empty seats against Lyon?

As I've been saying all summer there's very little that you can take from these friendly matches other than who's at what stage of their development, but it looked like it was one heck of a crazy game against Madrid last night, especially when you have sendings off in friendlies. I didn't watch the match [...]
