Morning folks. Right, plenty to sink our teeth in to today, so let's get straight to it and start with... France vs Germany / Portugal vs Hungary My second country, country of my Grandmother and usually a shoe in for some proper hope in international tournaments - Germany - showed why there aren't too many [...]

Buendia, Neves and Bissouma: Arsenal’s decisions already being made?

Morning all, hope you are all splendid today and feeling bright as a button for this latest week of rumour, counter-rumour, rage, fear and general angst that comes with a summer Arsenal transfer window. A summer in which - like every summer window since social media turned transfers into an opportunity to shout at a [...]

No funny business with the Xhaka sale to Roma please, Arsenal

So it appears that we are now in full swing for transfer nonsense time, with today's instalment including our Swiss centre midfielder who really does seem to divide opinions. So many people can't look beyond the lack of pace, his mistakes and occasional hot-headedness, as well as some of the other issues like the Palace [...]

Morale boosting win against Sjeffield United will help Arsenal prep for Slavia

It's snowing in London this morning. Snowing. In mid April. How weird is that? About as weird and unusual as an Arsenal clean sheet these days, so when the final whistle went and it was confirmed that we had beaten the hapless Sheffield United by three goals to nil, I didn't really know what to [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

By |2021-04-11T09:40:36+01:00April 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]

West Ham preview: take your chances when they come, Arsenal!

It's match day today and it's one that always has significance in my family, because it is where rivalries are split, given a large chunk of my family are West Ham fans. It's a little like the North London Derby because i'm not really a fan of it, but it doesn't have the same level [...]

Benfica at “home” – the first goal sets the tone of the game

So here we are folks. This will either be the latest in a number of important match days for Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal team this season, or it will be the last meaningful match day for Arsenal, as we take on Olympiak......sorry....Benfica....in Athens to progress to the next stage of the Europa League and [...]

Arsenal’s defeat to City: walking in No Man’s Land

I'm struggling to properly put my feelings in to proper context this morning, with regards to yesterday's defeat to Man City at home, because I have a mixture of disappointment and acceptance of what we all watched. When I write about Arsenal in a post match review of what went on I tend to view [...]

Arsenal and injuries: we can’t have nice things

Ahh balls. Big sh*tty balls. Thomas Partey has a hamstring strain. Are we not allowed nice things? Is that what it is? Isn't it the most Arsenal thing ever to sign a player with no history of injury (I sent the link around of his record on Transfermarkt record after the Tottenham game and on [...]

Arsenal have bench options, but they must contain Grealish and the counter

It's match day people! How we feeling? Excited? Nervous? Terrified? I must admit to you that I have a nervous excitement about today. The Wolves game may have repeated on me like a bit of dodgy cucumber, but that first half felt good, like it could be the start of something. New beginnings and all [...]
