Mikel obviously wanted a weekend without Arsenal as well after that snoozefest on Thursday night, because he did his pre match presser then and yesterday we got the video and transcription on the official site ahead of the game on Monday night against Newcastle. The good news is that Kieran Tierney isn’t going to be [...]

A mid table boring performance from a mid table boring Arsenal

Ahh man that was boring to watch last night. I tweeted that Arsenal are an ugly team with a handsome manager and last night's 0-0 snoozefest against Crystal Palace certainly felt like it was backed up by an Arsenal team so lacking in creative spark that you wondered if we were actually watching a pre [...]

Does Arteta need to publicly praise form players more? And what was the Runarsson ‘plan’?

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly Mikel Arteta held his press conference ahead of the Palace game on Thursday. Normally it is a day or two before the match itself but I wonder if he just wanted to 'get it out of the way' so he could focus on the challenge that Palace provide us this week. After [...]

Elneny to Sabitzer: How Arsenal’s style needs to evolve with player recruitment

By |2021-01-11T08:18:07+00:00January 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, midfield, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Morning folks. Another Monday in lockdown. It's a countdown to the Palace game on Thursday and as you'd probably expect given the game is four days away, which means most people arse still worrying themselves with transfer noises, which I too am not immune to. We've seen the Buendia stuff come and go, there's been [...]

How much does Arteta rotate Arsenal for tonight’s FA Cup game against Newcastle?

It's a little bit of a later one from me today, on account of a host of jobs i've had to do, but just before I pop out for a run I thought I'd pen some musings because it is FA Cup third round day and we've got ourselves a 5.30pm kick off on BBC [...]

Ozil saga reaches the end, as Arsenal turn to the Bank for help

Morning peeps. Happy Friday! How did that come around so quickly? I don't know if it's the same for you, but my first work week has absolutely flown by and I've got to be honest with you, I'm pretty glad about that, because: I've also given up booze I'm currently trying to shift Christmas pounds [...]

Dreaming of 97/98? Don’t get too excited…yet…Plus Saliba & Buendia chat

By |2021-01-05T08:02:53+00:00January 5th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal Transfers, Attack, gooners, Gunners, History, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

I didn't bother to watch any football yesterday (no Arsenal, no bother) but at 10pm last night as the news was on I thought I'd have a flick through my Twitter feed. And blow me down if I don't see a load of Arsenal fans talking about the 1997/98 run that won us the league. [...]

The Saliba situation is worrying beyond the player himself

Morning folks. Hope you're all good where you are? For me it's back to work and whilst the scenery doesn't change much - desk jockey working from home for the foreseeable future - the lack of booze and late get ups does, so I'm a wee bit groggy this morning, I must confess. Perhaps that's [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]
