Feeling for Emile…

By |2022-09-30T08:22:37+01:00September 30th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

There's only one place to start this morning, given that Arteta doesn't face the media until this afternoon, which is the disappointing news that Emile Smith Rowe has undergone surgery on that groin problem that has kept him in and out of the team all season and will now not be available until after the [...]

Hello, hello, hello, how are you doing today? Are you feeling chipper now that we're knocking down the doors of the North London Derby game on Saturday? I'm not. Hate this fixture more than anything else. Home or away, I hate it. The worry, the nerves, the stress, it all just builds until the moment [...]

Playing the Arsenal waiting game

By |2022-09-26T08:16:03+01:00September 26th, 2022|Arsenal, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, premier league|1 Comment

Is there anything more mind-numbingly boring than the Monday after an international break? I'm not so sure there is. We had some of the WSL to entertain people and I've kept track of some of it, as I've mentioned, but much like youth football, or picking a 'local' team to watch, or even an overseas [...]

Competition amongst the Arsenal squad, providing they all stay fit

Morning folks and welcome to Sunday. I spent my Saturday doing all manner of jobs and then today i'm going to relax and enjoy a day of rest. I saw that the Arsenal ladies gave the Scum ladies a good ol' fashioned tonking and that's always good to hear. I've seen a couple of the [...]

Is it time for the ‘after Partey’?

Couple of days away from blogging for me over the last two; the first was because of a super-early get up to head off to an all company away day and so I didn't have the chance to, but the second - yesterday - was due in large part to the big hangover I had [...]

The Arsenal kids are alright, in spit of the media nonsense

Happy Wednesday peeps. How you doing? Are you feeling chipper even though we're on an international break now? I know I still am. Sitting top of the table will do that to you. I think it is because we all know that in reality it won't last, which is why we're maybe taking this 'top [...]

Arsenal hitting to keep hitting the ‘mini milestones’ on points

By |2022-09-20T08:43:35+01:00September 20th, 2022|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, premier league|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. It's an odd one in the UK because the bank holiday yesterday was essentially non-existent two weeks ago, so it kind of still feels like a Monday morning. Only it isn't. It's Tuesday. But it carries that feeling of a Monday of satisfaction after the three points at the [...]

Arsenal knock down another narrative with Brentford win

By |2022-09-19T09:02:19+01:00September 19th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|1 Comment

Yesterday's result felt like yet another milestone, yet another narrative, was  knocked down. On opening day it was the "tough game  under the lights", after five games it was the "yeah but the teams you've played have been rubbish", but yesterday we played a good and in form team, whose fans are bullish, playing them [...]

Arsenal must win all the duels against Brentford

It's finally a Premier League match day again for The Arsenal and I've got that usual feeling of butterflies in the stomach that occur in the morning of a game. All week I've been thinking about Brentford, I've listened to podcast previews, I've ruminated on how the match might unfold and in my head I've [...]

Arteta coy on injuries as usual

By |2022-09-17T08:25:16+01:00September 17th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Morning folks - we  all good? It was press conference day at The Arsenal yesterday and that meant an opportunity to get some updates from Mikel Arteta on the team, the Queen, as well as our opponents Brentford on Sunday, for which three points is the dream. Unsurprisingly for Arteta he didn't really tell  us [...]
