It's gettin' mighty cold in these here parts, I have to say, although I'm pleased that I didn't have to venture out much. Had I wanted to I'd probably have swung by the away end at the Tiny Totts stadium, because the Arsenal ladies were there to serve up a victory against them in the [...]

Torreira to outlast Unai Emery?

As if things can't feel like they seem any more farcical right now, we found out yesterday that Lucas Torreira wants talks with the manager because he is not happen with his current situation or his role in the Arsenal team, which to most of us is a 'well, duh' kind of moment really. That's [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]

Poor performances all round becoming the norm – Palace profit

So much to talk about this morning! Unfortunately, very little is positive, so whilst I'm not sure I'll get through everything in this tube journey on my way to work, I'll give it my best shot. The performanceWas turgid. Again. We got ourselves into a commanding position with two goals in the first ten minutes [...]

So who is going to be Arsenal’s number 10, then?

Bloody hell Leicester, that's one way to put ten men to the sword, eh? Last night their battering of Southampton felt in very stark contrast to the two pretty terrible football match that our players have delivered in the last week. It was ruthless, free-flowing and an example of a manager who has given his [...]

Is Emery the new Bruce Rioch? Sheffield United reaction

I was 13 years old when Bruce Rioch had his solitary season in charge of The Arsenal. He had David Platt, Dennis Bergkamp, the back four that had won leagues, an Ian Wright in his prime and Paul Merson all able to do the business for him. Yet we finished fifth and just scraped in [...]

Luiz sentiment is appreciated, but the reality is very different for Arsenal’s title bid

A Saturday welcome I bid you my friends. Sadly it's one without The Arsenal but I guess it is what it is and we have to contend ourselves with a weekend of supporting every other team that our rivals play. So it's Newcastle and Watford that we'll be hoping to do something special today. And [...]

Are Arsenal going to ‘Arsenal’ it in Manchester tonight?

Howdy from a Gooner Stateside with jet leg. I don't get it - I thought that was only supposed to happen going East, not the other way around, so I'm finding myself beat by 10.30pm and up at 5.30pm at the moment, which is not how I plan on spending my holiday in a place [...]

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 [...]

Xhaka and Torreira base to build on against Villa?

Villa at home at 4.30pm this Sunday afternoon represents an opportunity for Unai Emery and his players to show that we're back on the 'winning wagon'. We won in midweek against Frankfurt but building momentum needs a series of wins together and with United away coming up next weekend we really can't afford to be [...]
