Morning folks and welcome to another Monday. It's a William Saliba shaped one by the sounds of it and supposedly we are in for him and have finally come to an agreement with his representatives, with just the small matter of St Etienne needing to agree the fee, so in other words the hardest bit [...]

Fixtures are out and it’s all about early momentum for The Arsenal

By |2019-06-13T11:38:05+01:00June 13th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Transfers, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

So we know how our season next year is going to pan out fixtures-wise, with the first one of the season away to Newcastle on Sunday 11th August. Then it's a home game against Burnley before Liverpool away and the Tiny Totts at home. Hardly the easiest of starts and certainly isn't a series of [...]

Unai to get it right tactically in another big game?

It's a bit of a weird time right now. I'm fighting hard to resist the urge to start having a bit of a deconstruction of this season because it all feels like it's swinging on the pendulum of the Europa League cup final. Win it and we have ourselves a trophy, a spot in the [...]

Auba’s day as we sign off with win at Burnley

Well that's that then. We finally bring an end to this domestic season and whilst I'm not as glad to see the back of it as last year, it's not really ended the way I'd have hoped. In fact, the last few weeks have been pretty turgid domestically and whilst we still have an outside [...]

The most ‘Meh’ weekend in Arsenal’s recent history?

By |2019-05-11T08:59:34+01:00May 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

I'm off to Germany this weekend, currently urging in a London airport, waiting for my three hour-delayed flight to get here and I'll be honest with you I really couldn't be bothered to even start today's Arsenal thinking's. Yet here I am, typing away, with possibly one of the most 'meh' Premier League weekend's I [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]

Patience and professionalism the key for Arsenal at home to Brighton

It's the last home game of the season today, a chance to say goodbye to Cech and Ramsey and quite unbelievably, a game in which winning could still keep us in the hunt for a final day top four spot. Quite how we are still in it is beyond me but bizarrely after the Tiny [...]

Top four is done, but Laca could still fire us to Europa League success

Unai faced the media yesterday and as usual never really said anything of interest, also not confirming whether Cech will play his last game of the season tomorrow against Brighton. I'd like to say that Brighton will have nothing to play for if they are safe, but Palace didn't, which didn't stop us from absolutely [...]

Are we heading for ‘Project Youth II’?

Wouldn't an Ajax vs Barcelona final just bring back the romance of the European Cup, eh? A team who has a rich history but has fallen down the global pecking order since the advent of the Champions League format, versus a team who thinks the world loves them but in fact it's just their own [...]

Leicester: sh*t or bust for Arsenal’s Champions League hopes

Another away trip against a team with nothing to play for and sadly I have very little confidence that we will come out of this one with any points. Wolves aren't fighting for anything, Palace weren't fighting for anything, yet both put three past us and with Leicester sure to play us on the counter [...]
