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 [...]

Watford’s physical approach must be countered

This is a big match day for our season today. Over the weekend we fell down in to sixth and if we suffer back-to-back defeats in the Premier League following the Everton debacle, then it really will start to feel like this run of so called 'easier' games isn't going to go to plan. Mainly [...]

Is Torreira the glue in our midfield?

So no favaoirs have been done by any teams this week in relation to picking up points from our rivals and that means that yesterday we slipped down to sixth with the Totts on 67 points, Chelski on 66 and United in fifth on 64. We're one behind them on 63 and it just serves [...]

Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

West Ham defeat shows Unai must swallow his pride on some players

Yesterday's game was, unfortunately, not a 'bad day at the office' that we can say is in isolation with this Arsenal team. Sadly our away form has dropped off of a cliff for the last month and in the league when you consider that has included Southampton, Brighton and West Ham - where we've taken [...]

Lucas Torreira the Swiss Army knife

Quite obviously to anybody who has witness his rise to prominence in the last six to eight weeks, it comes as no surprise that Lucas Torreira won the November player of the month award at Arsenal, having picked up man-of-the-match displays in what feels like most of his starts this season at this stage. Based [...]

Özil away – for or against?

A wet and sodden England today makes for a happy Christopher not. It's an early start, dark, I'm wet all over and we have to wait another 36 odd hours until The Arsenal are on again. Still, at least we get a bit of midweek football so I probably shouldn't grumble too much. And there's [...]

Guendouzi and Torreira: the exciting Arsenal future

Morning folks. Holy moly it's colder than an emperor penguin gathering point in London today. Well, it's actually only about four degrees but when you add a biting bit of wind to it and the fact I'm on the tube at 6.30am in the morning, it all adds up to a general feeling of discomfort. [...]

Ramsey situation isn’t like Alexis, so Bayern is palatable

Happy Friday people. Hope it goes well for you and your kin. Me, I'm toiling in the boredom levels of no Arsenal to think constantly about, but the fact I have my folks over for the weekend and the fact The Management and I are doing a bit of tourism in London tomorrow is keeping [...]
