I’m liking Odsonne Edouard links to The Arsenal

By |2020-03-26T08:10:56+00:00March 26th, 2020|Arsenal Transfers, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

I don't usually like to get myself involved too heavily on transfer-related stuff - especially in March - but given that this isn't really a 'real' March, in a footballing sense, I thought I'd indulge my curiosity for a change and have a look at NewsNow this morning to see how Odsonne Edouard is linked [...]

The footballing world needs to shut down after Arteta contracts Covid-19

By |2020-03-13T08:06:30+00:00March 13th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Morning folks, brought to you today from the office in my house, as my business took the pre-emptive measure yesterday to have everybody home-based for the foreseeable future. It makes sense, but having worked in London for many years and being in the office yesterday, I can tell you that there was not a lot [...]

Arteta’s impressive presser breathes hope for City away

As we all suspected it was a press conference day yesterday and, whilst I still don’t think we’ll be getting anything from the game on Wednesday night, Arteta’s convictions and the way he articulated himself in the press conference, had me thinking that maybe...just maybe...he has some kind of blueprint for success. It’s unlikely because [...]

Auba’s contract length was wrong; why signing Willian doesn’t make sense

If Saturday’s results - including The Arsenal’s - were a positive day for us, then yesterday’s were the opposite, as Everton rolled over and let Chelski blow raspberries on their bellies, whilst Man City played the possession-based game of how to be toothless against A United side who had their number early on in the [...]

VAR does Arsenal a favour for once against West Ham

By |2020-03-08T08:16:26+00:00March 8th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

When the offside flag went up to signal Arsenal’s winning goal against West Ham yesterday, the thought never even crossed my mind that VAR would rule that it was onside and the goal should stand. Such is the extent to which we’ve been skanked by it this season I just assumed that we’d not be [...]

Torreira and his flesh wound; Arteta and his injury woes

By |2020-03-06T08:00:46+00:00March 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Mikel Arteta, press conference|0 Comments

We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

FA Cup thoughts from a gooner: To Schadenfreude or not to Schadenfreude…

I'm trying to work out this morning how hard to go in on the schadenfreude with the scum after they crashed out of the FA Cup on penalties to Norwich last night. I mean on the one hand I want to get stuck in two footed and laugh my t*ts off, but then I think about the [...]

Will the Man City fixture reschedule derail Arsenal’s momentum?

Now I’m not going to go all obsessive on this subject, believe me, but having witnessed Liverpool get knocked out of the FA Cup to Chelski I couldn’t help but smile. That’s because there’s been a lot of these comparisons with Arsenal’s invincibles since the weekend and there’s plenty of salty scousers who have been [...]
