We're here at another matchday, as our month of intense football is now well underway, with Luton at home tonight. On paper at least you'd look at our April fixture list and say this is the one in which Arsenal would have the highest odds and should be considered the overwhelming favourites for the three [...]

As I and many others predicted in the build up to this match, there would be no basketball-style game, leading to goals galore. Instead, this was every bit the chess match, played between two teams who are stylistically even matched and two managers who follow similar footballing philosophies. There was the inevitable chiding online from [...]

Cagey chess match football: City v Arsenal preview

It’s the big one today and, as I suspected but didn’t say, the butterflies and nerves for this game against City later on are starting to kick in. Arsenal travel to Manchester trying to do something we haven’t managed to do in nine previous attempts in all competitions. You have to go back eight years [...]

I never normally watch the opposition match press conference, but given the build up to this massive game tomorrow and given how significant it could impact both City and Arsenal's season, I thought I'd have a little sneak peak at pep's comments in his presser. Obviously I was also intrigued on how he delivered news [...]

It's Good Friday, we've just finished off a bit of a preview pod on the Same Old Arsenal podcast (you can have a look here), we've got ourselves a press conference from Mikel Arteta coming up at some stage today and then he'll give us a low down on where the team is at and [...]

It had to be Bayern and Kane, didn’t it?

It just had to be bloody Bayern Munich, didn't it, eh? On Thursday I wrote about my preference about who I'd like to see us play in the quarter-final and on that list Bayern finished fifth out of eight, so it almost felt inevitable that we were going to get one of the toughest opponents [...]

So last night we found out all about who our opponents could potentially be, as the last of the Champions League round of 16 games were played and it was Atleti and Dortmund who advanced to the quarter finals, which means we'll get one of: Atlético de Madrid Barcelona Bayern München Borussia Dortmund Manchester City [...]

Big one tonight lads and lasses. It's a second leg Champions League tie against FC Porto and Arsenal have a one goal deficit that they need to overcome if there is to be more Champions League football played at The Emirates this season. Mikel Arteta and his players know exactly what is needed and they [...]
