Time for an Arsenal reboot – post match Brighton thoughts

Blimey. Where do we even start this morning? What an utter car crash is going on at the club and unfortunately for Mikel, even his driving skills can’t rectify what is a completely broken team. Almost ‘literally’ given that we’ve probably lost Leno for the season - maybe beyond - now. Neil Maupay telling the [...]

Luiz loses the plot but Arteta has more problems than that

If you were to tell somebody to write a script that embodied the current Arsenal team, then play out that script in the form of a football match, it would resemble something very similar to what we witnessed last night with the 3-0 defeat at the Etihad. It had all of the component parts: Injuries [...]

Don’t lose your sh*t over a friendly fitness exercise defeat to Brentford

By |2020-06-11T08:06:19+01:00June 11th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, friendly, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

So it turns out there was a bit of football played again yesterday, as we entertained Brentford at an empty Emirates bowl and unfortunately lost 3-2, with the Bees bagging a goal in the last couple of minutes to see off the game. It was all a bit cloak and dagger until the last minute, [...]

VAR does Arsenal a favour for once against West Ham

By |2020-03-08T08:16:26+00:00March 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

When the offside flag went up to signal Arsenal’s winning goal against West Ham yesterday, the thought never even crossed my mind that VAR would rule that it was onside and the goal should stand. Such is the extent to which we’ve been skanked by it this season I just assumed that we’d not be [...]

A second half step up from The Arsenal against Portsmouth

By |2020-03-03T08:29:59+00:00March 3rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

Well, we got there in the end and, despite some pretty decent concerted effort from Portsmouth in the first half against The Arsenal last night, the job was done and we are into the bowl for the next round of the FA Cup. It wasn’t easy though. Far from it in the first half and [...]

Unprofessional Arsenal crash out of Europe

That was a disgrace of a performance last night. It was an example in arrogance and this morning I am still pretty raw with rage from what I saw last night. Because what I saw was an Arsenal team that broke one of the fundamental laws of any kind of competition: Never underestimate your opponent. [...]

Fatigued Arsenal build momentum against Everton

By |2020-02-24T07:49:16+00:00February 24th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

A third win in a week is certainly nothing to be sniffed at and, with a sixth, seventh and eighth goal scored in eight days, then you can’t really be complaining too much after the season we’ve had. It felt like a weird old game though. What I mean by that is that when I [...]

Hang on a minute…’Gritty Arsenal grind out 1-0 win away’???

Morning folks. It feels weird this morning. It feels very weird. We won, which is good. We won back-to-back games, which is also good. But we also did it in a style and approach that was resolute, dogged and whilst not always pretty on the eye, it did the job. Arsenal 'getting the job done'. [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

Boring Burnley, boring Arsenal, boring draws and a boring Premier League

By |2020-02-03T11:41:22+00:00February 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

well there are some things in life that feel as certain as death and taxes and, right now, Arsenal drawing and Burnley fans booing absolutely anything they could possibly muster are such things. Yesterday's 0-0 was our 13th in a season that has seen us only lose six games, but only win six and these [...]
