Torreira news is positive, but we need a young Prince waiting behind him

So we've all been Ornsteined after he did his bit to whip up the Arsenal fan base yesterday by giving a lowdown on Arsenal's dealings this summer and whilst it included a little on the potential 'incomings' it was the speculated 'outgoings' that had me happier after I'd read what he had to say. Firstly [...]

Tierney chase hots up, Torreira chase needs to cool down

Happy Monday all and if you're in the South East of the UK you'll be feeling the same way I've been feeling this weekend and this morning: It's about effing time the summer decided to show up, especially warmth-wise. Of course for The Arsenal it feels like our summer, this summer of supposed team strengthening, [...]

An away goal (or lack of) could be essential tonight for Arsenal’s cup hopes

Here we are folks. This game this evening represents - in my opinion - one of the most important in the season for these Arsenal players. That's because our horrendous away form invariably means that we are going to struggle at the Mestalla and so unless we win - and win well - tonight, I [...]

Burnley do us a favour, but Arsenal still needs it’s midfield back

Well didn't we get away with it yesterday, with Burnley doing us an almighty favour and holding Chelski to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, which means Top four is still in our shaky hands. I didn't expect anything from a Burnley team that are pretty much safe but by drawing away it means that [...]

Palace profit from comical Arsenal

Sadly I had a feeling we were due a performance from Arsenal at home like we got yesterday. Lethargic, leggy and lackadaisical with some absolutely comical defending that really gifted Palace all three points yesterday. Unai Emery rotates once again and I'm came Jenkinson, Mavropanos and Mustafi in defence, followed by a midfield duo of [...]

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 [...]

Midfield is key against City

By |2019-02-03T10:14:52+01:00February 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Formation, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

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 [...]
