It's game day and I don't think I've ever been as in the dark over how Arsenal might line up tonight for the semi final of the League Cup, as I have for this evenings game against Victim FC/Cheat FC, given our current problems. Question marks are hanging over whether Granit Xhaka has come out [...]

Morning and happy Wednesday to you wonderful people. I don't know about you but this week has absolutely flown by for me and as two big games loom on the horizon in the space of four games from tomorrow, the nerves are starting to kick in. So too is the realisation that by Monday things [...]

League Cup should be a focus; there are others out there than Vlahovic

Morning all and welcome to Tuesday. Now, I feel like I've gone on a little bit about the League Cup situation and the postponement lately, so after today I am hoping that I don't bother to bring it up unless talking about the actual football context, but I do feel compelled to do a little [...]

Tactical and player mistakes knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup against Forest

For the second time in four years Arsenal travelled to the City Ground to play Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup and for the second time in four years Arsenal's FA Cup run was halted as quickly as it began in ignominious fashion as we were knocked out to a [...]

Forest away – Arsenal must control the narrative and quieten the crowd

Morning folks and welcome to matchday. It is one of my most favourite match days of the year actually; FA Cup third round day. A chance to travel to a ground that you don't often go to and for me I haven't been to the City Ground, so a new one to tick off the [...]

Arteta’s admission on transfer movement is good news this January

Before I start talking about the press conference and some of the more interesting parts of it for me yesterday, I thought I'd just mention Arsenal's campaign against knife crime that was released yesterday, with a video and also confirmation that Arsenal will wear an all white kit for the game against Nottingham Forest in [...]

How does Arteta rotate in the next 10 days and what should we do about Lacazette?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday. Been a long ol' slog this week, I have to say, so has it been the same for you? Have you just jumped straight back in to the swing of work or have you counted down until the weekend like me? What hasn't helped was the lack of football [...]

COVID crippling any well-though game plans

I didn't manage to catch the training pictures from 29th that the club released, so had a little look this morning, as I pondered to myself why on earth I give a monkeys about seeing players doing their shuttle runs at London Colney more now than I ever have before. Then it dawned on me: [...]

Arteta’s COVID has a big impact in a game of fine margins

By |2021-12-30T08:48:01+00:00December 30th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

There's no place to start today other than our manager Mikel Arteta, who the club confirmed yesterday contracted COVID for the second time in just under two years, meaning he is now in isolation and will not be on the bench for the game against Man City on New Years Day. I think this is [...]

Arsenal doing the job; confidence soaring against Norwich

Some days writing about The Arsenal feels like a proper chore. I've been - broadly speaking - writing about Arsenal for 13 years and so it has become habitual, which means I really do have to drag my carcass to the laptop and at this time of the year with over-indulgence a daily occurrence, it [...]
