Chambers and Saliba’s vital minutes to spell future first team options?

By |2020-11-12T08:12:01+00:00November 12th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Defence, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Morning folks. Here comes international break Thursday and with it a whole heap of...well...not a lot, really. The best Arsenal scraps we have to feed off are an under-23s game in which Chambers and Saliba played, as well as Gareth Southgate asking if Bukayo Saka is ok after the defeat to Villa. BUkayo broke down [...]

Give Pepe his chance to deliver Arsenal’s X-factor

By |2020-11-11T08:11:30+00:00November 11th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to the midweek of the first international break. This is always one of the more tedious periods in the season and knowing that we have another week and a half before proper football comes back is frustrating to say the least. What we also get at this time of the international [...]

Taking the ‘rough’ with the ‘smooth’ with new manager Arteta

By |2020-11-10T08:10:42+00:00November 10th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|2 Comments

I'm still trying to figure out in my head why I'm still mad about the Villa game. We're now two days after the defeat and usually after a blog post mortem and generally trying to fill my life with other stuff, I am able to just put defeats in a metaphorical box, move on, prep [...]

Cowardly Arsenal outfought by Villa

By |2020-11-09T08:54:27+00:00November 9th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Rant, Tactics|0 Comments

That was a disgusting performance last night from Arsenal. It was cowardly, lacked intensity and, frankly, should be worthy of some serious examination and change by the club in the cold light of day this morning. If last week it was time to hold our hands up and admit that Arteta got the approach and [...]

Arsenal need to find an answer to Villa’s low block and counter

And here we are at another match day folks. It’s a late kick off, a disgusting ‘pay-per-view’ kick off, with a return of a former player we all know and love in the shape of Emi Martinez, as we line up against Aston Villa at The Emirates tonight. We all know Emi is having the [...]

Arteta’s Premier League options – five subs or not

By |2020-11-07T09:22:50+00:00November 7th, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we had ourselves a press conference from the boss yesterday and that included a raft of questions from the assembled press on the Zoom call. He was asked about team news and the good news appears that we haven't picked up any knocks from Thursday night, so that's good. With games coming thick and [...]

Arsenal and Pepe: two enigmas

By |2020-11-06T09:26:09+00:00November 6th, 2020|Arsenal, Attack, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

What more could a man ask for than three points the day before his birthday? Yep, I celebrate getting a year older. Yesterday I was one age and today I am another. That's how it works. And I like to think in honour of my ever increasing age, Arsenal...eventually...did the business last night in the [...]

Molde FK will bring about rotation in Arsenal tonight – match preview

By |2020-11-05T08:17:34+00:00November 5th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|1 Comment

Matchday number three in the Europa League brings about it a team named after the stuff growing in Tottenham's trophy cabinet. Yep, Molde are coming to town, which means we've got an opportunity to see how our team stacks up against the current reigning Norwegian Champions who currently sit second in the Eliteserien league. And [...]

The unpredictability of Arsenal’s first XI

By |2020-11-04T08:04:51+00:00November 4th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Howdy folks and welcome to another midweek of jam-packed football action, which continues for us tomorrow evening with the home visit of Molde to The Arsenal. I suspect Mikel will take to the virtual stage and I think the key questions he'll be asked should centre around his team selection tomorrow night, because whilst Molde [...]

Changing Arsenal’s front three and letting go of the reins a little

Morning y'all and happy Tuesday unto thee. I'm playing Lockdown2 countdown at the moment by visiting my local watering holes in the evening and sampling the amber nectar they have on display. It's not that I particularly need to be having a beer every night, but when that smooth taste of a draught of beer is [...]
