Emery says something, which isn’t anything; back to basics Arsenal

After a day in which Unai Emery has had a press conference ahead of a game I like to have a little read over his comments on the official website to see if there's anything that I can glean that gives an insight in to how the team will set up in the upcoming match. [...]

We don’t spread our scoring around enough at Arsenal

I really like it when Arsenal and the players go in to media lockdown and blackout after a poor result. After a couple of results like we've had this week the last thing I want to see if Alex Iwobi channelling his inner Johan Djourou with a "we have to move on" statement post the [...]

Wolves will hit us with pace on the counter tonight, we need to deal with it

After a weekend in which teams around us dropped points tonight's game needs to come in to very sharp focus for Unai Emery and his team. This is because a win against Wolves will bring us not only three valuable points but also provide a valuable psychological boost to the players in terms of the [...]

Palace’s pace out wide needs to be countered by Arsenal today

Today is going to be a tough game. We're at the point in the season where there are many aching limbs, we're missing key players, plus those that are fit are being patched up and sent out twice a week and expected to get results. Today is no different and after Man City just about [...]

Don’t get mad on Sunday Gooners: Unai’s getting rotation right

Happy Easter Saturday to you. I do like Easter Saturday. Despite not being particularly religious, I do - for the sake of the in-laws family - observe the 'no booze' rule on 'Good-but-should-be-called-rubbish Friday' and being up in the North East I always find myself craving a beer. So yesterday was a tough one. But [...]

Points first, performance a very far second, against Watford

Life as an Arsenal fan, eh? Before the game we had excitement. The team was left of field as Unai has done to us all season; it was exciting and with Mavropanos in, a midfield including Xhaka and Torreira, with Ramsey providing energy in front of them, this felt perfect for a Watford side who [...]

Watford’s physical approach must be countered

This is a big match day for our season today. Over the weekend we fell down in to sixth and if we suffer back-to-back defeats in the Premier League following the Everton debacle, then it really will start to feel like this run of so called 'easier' games isn't going to go to plan. Mainly [...]

Arsenal have a psychological problem away that will stop top four hopes

We've got some serious problems psychological in this Arsenal team that Unai Emery still has to overcome I think. Yesterday was the first of a collective of games we've been building up to where our fate is in our own hands. The Newcastle game may have been the first match back after an extended break [...]

Back three to offer more protection against Everton’s pacey front line?

Today begins the tough work as we play the first of what feels like about a billion away games to finish the season. We're on the last stretch, we probably need 12 or 13 points I think and looking at the teams we play today has to be one of those games in which a [...]
