Four wins and a draw for Arsenal – but from where?

By |2019-04-03T07:27:05+01:00April 3rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Ownership and the board, premier league, Unai Emery|1 Comment

With Wolves doing us a favour last night and Solskjaer saying they need five wins from six, inevitably the first thing I did this morning as I was brushing my teeth before work was to think "does that mean we only need four and a draw?" If the United Boss is right it puts 76 [...]

Professional Arsenal hitting form at right time against Newcastle

Well I thought that was a thoroughly enjoyable performance last night. It was composed, assured and one of the simplest of three points we'll get this season. On a weekend where a victory could see us get in to the third spot by overcoming the Geordies, it could have been a tricky encounter against a [...]

Expect a cagey affair against Newcastle tonight

The defeat to the Scousers by the Tiny Totts has given us somewhat of an opportunity this evening. Victory sends us two points clear of them and Man United and of ever the Arsenal players needed an incentive this could be it when we play Newcastle at 8pm. I'm certainly not one to wish Liverpool [...]

Arsenal need to find 25 goals between now and the end of this season

Man United's win over Watford and Chelski's inevitable victory over Cardiff today does hit home the importance that each game has and tomorrow we have yet another example of why consistently picking up wins is crucial at this time in the season. I'm by no means counting my chickens but tomorrow night's match against Newcastle [...]

Friendlies Schmendlies, but who plays in Arsenal’s midfield?

Can I admit something to you? I really couldn't give a monkeys about the pre season friendly games. Sorry, but there, I said it. I mean it's not that I don't appreciate their value to fans that don't get to see The Arsenal every odd week like I do, but because I do and because [...]

79 points gets Arsenal a top four spot, but margin for error is negligible

By |2019-03-24T10:29:19+01:00March 24th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league|0 Comments

With the season defining part of 2018/19 upon ads, I started to do that classic football fan related thing of playing out every single game in my mind to see what I think our realistic chances of hitting the targets that are before us between now and May. I recognise it's a completely redundant idea [...]

Welbeck’s return probably isn’t great news for Suarez

I had a few drinks last night and bleurgh, i'm feeling a little worse for wear, i have to tell you. But I wasn't drunk enough to watch England last night and despite the fact they smashed Czech Republic I can't get too excited about a team captained by The Crayon-eating Dribbler up top. Sorry. [...]

April will define Unai Emery’s first season at Arsenal

With work sending me across the globe in the last 10 days or so it's been difficult mustering the energy to write daily Arsenal ramblings, especially when you're so far behind on news due to the tone zones that by the time you do write something it's rendered a little redundant, so today I'm back [...]

Big morale win for Arsenal against United

By |2019-03-11T07:50:12+01:00March 11th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league|0 Comments

I haven't exactly had the time to actually watch the game yet due to work travel commitments, so today's blog is a little bit of a 'helicopter view' of what I think it means to us to have beaten United on our own patch yesterday. It's big. Real big. Potentially season defining big. It is [...]

Don’t fall into the United counter attack trap, Arsenal

Frustratingly, because I've got overseas travel with work today, I'll not find out the result of the game until about 7pm tonight. Which isn't exactly helping my nervous disposition when I think about the game in general. This - as well as Rennes at home on Thursday next week - is season defining for Emery [...]
