Morning folks and welcome to another working week. I can smile knowing that there are Tottenham fans that were crowing just a month ago that are sad this morning, but behind that smile is the very real worry that they'll actually bother showing up against us next Sunday, as opposed to what went on yesterday [...]

Pepe, ESR, Odegaard and Saka – three from four at Burnley

There are some universal truths in life: death, taxes and Burnley fans booing something an opposition player does even though he was in fact probably fouled. And Burnley's fans are the booiest fans you'll ever see. If there was a sweepstake on the first minute at which the Burnley fans would boo Arsenal today, I [...]

Arteta’s straight bat is good for me

Mikel had his pre-Burnley press conference yesterday and as is the way these days, he said some things that I'll be darned if I don't end up getting excited when I hear him talk. I know football is about what is on the pitch,  I know that the football has not been great for a [...]

Tomiyasu the new Monreal?

We got to hear from our newbie  yesterday, with the club dropping a fresh new video of Tomiyasu talking at London Colney to the chap that usually does the Arsenal Media videos and I have to say I was impressed. His English was excellent for somebody who has been in Japan, Belgium and then Italy [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. Well, what do we have right now then, in terms of Arsenal news, eh? It always goes a little quiet after a win like this and the introspection and teeth gnashing stops a little, or at least slows down, so it's nice having a little look around the internet [...]

Top four calculations and the lack of Arsenal goals

Morning folks and happy Monday and all that jazz. You doing alright? I woke up at about 5am this morning and it took me about 30 minutes to drift back off to sleep. Why? The  Top Four. Yep, that's right, I couldn't get back to sleep because I was thinking about the chances of Arsenal [...]

Arsenal up and running with green shoots against Norwich

Winning football matches is hella fun. I like it. I like it indeed. And although at the time I felt moments of frustration, this was very much one of those days in which I look back at the game and realise that actually Arsenal played quite well. In fact you'd say the 1-0 scoreline probably [...]

Arsenal’s green shoots need to start today against Norwich

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Arteta talks a great game – we need it on the pitch NOW

Morning party people, happy Friday! Let's hope that this weekend might bring that most precious of things: goals and three points to The Arsenal! I don't know why I'm starting off today's blog with such unbridled positivity, because I've woken up at 5.15am and I feel absolutely shattered. Plus there's a leaving party at my [...]

Arteta must balance player fitness with results

More bloody internationals?? I wasn't expecting this! Yet here we are, having had to endure yet another round of them crammed in, with players being away from their clubs even longer and probably only reporting for training tomorrow ahead of the weekend's action. Still, it could be worse, because we could have a team full [...]
