Arteta’s mini pre-season; all eyes on the return fixtures

By |2020-02-07T07:28:45+00:00February 7th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, pre season, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This morning, I be mostly thinking about....mini pre seasons. We're in one right now. It's a winter break in which Arteta has taken the lads out to Dubai to bond, talk tactics, probably look at opponents and most likely give a little bit of a reset on what has happened over the last six weeks. [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems aren’t the result of defensive stability

Morning folks. Happy Tuesday and all that jazz. I'm working from home today - benefits of a flexible company - and I've decided that I need a bit of fresh air in the morning. Only the fresh air of London isn't actually that fresh, plus it's pretty cold, so all-in-all it's not as great an [...]

Boring Burnley, boring Arsenal, boring draws and a boring Premier League

By |2020-02-03T11:41:22+00:00February 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

well there are some things in life that feel as certain as death and taxes and, right now, Arsenal drawing and Burnley fans booing absolutely anything they could possibly muster are such things. Yesterday's 0-0 was our 13th in a season that has seen us only lose six games, but only win six and these [...]

Silence booey Burnley by a quick start, Arsenal

Morning all and welcome to match day. Have sampled the delights of a  Saturday 3pm kick off a couple weekend's ago, we've had it whipped away from us with another Sunday game, this time with an away trip to Burnley kicking off at 2pm this afternoon. Ahh Burnley, with the 'booiest' fans in the Premier [...]

Soares in is a sensible move for Arsenal

Bit of a later one from me today. Partly because I was working from home this morning and therefore haven't been sat on the tube able to write my usual ramblings. But mainly because I went out last night on a work corporate thing and first thing this morning I was pretty hanging. It's a [...]

Pablo Mari signs for Arsenal: reasons to be excited

So we have ourselves a shiny new player! One in which we can pour all of our hopes, dreams and ambitions into, that he'll be the next Tony Adams or Sol Campbell. Until the summer. Yep, because it's a six month loan deal with an option to buy and as I've said already this week [...]

Arsenal’s Mari stance is spot on

So it appears the transfer Merry-go-round for Pablo Mari has once again swung around Arsenal's way, as reports from Brazil last night were saying that Flamengo have accepted Arsenal's desires and will make the deal for him to join us this January, one that will only be a loan with an 'option' to buy rather [...]

A turgid Premier League shines light on Sanllehi

When you realise how often some of the 'big teams' are screwing up at the moment at the top of the Premier League, it does make you wonder how Arsenal find themselves mid table with 24 games gone, because any sort of run of victories probably gets you in to the top four. How on [...]

Arteta’s Arsenal show resolve, determination and fight against Chelsea

By |2020-01-22T08:36:10+00:00January 22nd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

There's been a few media rumblings about how Arteta has only won two of his seven games in charge as Arsenal manager. It's stat loading where its not necessary but if it gives somebody an angle they'll take it. Which is why there will be another round of journos and writers chucking in the fact [...]

Arsenal have a ‘free hit’ away at Chelsea tonight

On Saturday morning I was uber positive about Arsenal getting the result and all three points against Sheffield United at home. I thought that despite injuries, suspensions and recent misfortune on VAR, we'd manage to grab ourselves some precious points on our own turf. Unfortunately I hadn't bargained on the fact that the footballing gods [...]
