Winning football matches is hella fun. I like it. I like it indeed. And although at the time I felt moments of frustration, this was very much one of those days in which I look back at the game and realise that actually Arsenal played quite well. In fact you'd say the 1-0 scoreline probably [...]

Arsenal’s green shoots need to start today against Norwich

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Arteta talks a great game – we need it on the pitch NOW

Morning party people, happy Friday! Let's hope that this weekend might bring that most precious of things: goals and three points to The Arsenal! I don't know why I'm starting off today's blog with such unbridled positivity, because I've woken up at 5.15am and I feel absolutely shattered. Plus there's a leaving party at my [...]

COVID curse for Arsenal? Where have all the midfielders gone?

By |2021-09-08T07:11:40+01:00September 8th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, injuries, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Could all just be rumour. Could just be 'The Internet' and 'Internet People' being all 'Internetty', but with ESR not in the Under-21s England squad yesterday, as well as not being in the squad for the full international team over the weekend, the rumours started to circulate that Emile was 'ill' and in the current [...]

Are Arsenal ready for the new season? Is Willock’s exit just the start?

So the two big talking points today then, are: The final televised friendly against the Scum that ended in a 1-0 defeat yesterday lunchtime The impending sale of Joe Willock First, the game itself, which was the final one in the 'Mind' series. We found ourselves on the wrong end of the result and finished [...]

Xhaka contract: Are Arsenal kicking the midfield can down the road?

So it looks like Granit Xhaka is on the verge of "FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!" as they say in the ol' US of A when wanting their politicians to stay on. Only this doesn't feel like a groundswell of Arsenal public opinion that will see the Swiss international captain get a slight pay [...]

No Partey MUST mean we Sambi against Brentford

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday n’all that jazz. Hope you and yours are doing fine. We’re at T-minus ten days and counting until the kick of to the Premier League season and I don’t know about you, but I feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation about the season ahead. What isn’t helping is that it [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]

Watford take a look at Eddie as Azeez looks tasty

Well, don't we have a lot of things to chew over on this Thursday morn, eh? For starters there was a game yesterday. Bit last minute, but Arsenal arranged another friendly at London Colney in which Watford came to visit from over the fence. Almost literally, given their training ground is next to ours and [...]
