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 [...]

Ozil’s return: he hasn’t changed THAT much guys

By |2019-04-06T09:36:40+01:00April 6th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, premier league, press conference, Unai Emery|2 Comments

So we had some words from Unai yesterday and he gave us an update on availability ahead of Sunday's lunchtime kick off against Everton. Torreira is still suspended for doing less than Danny Rose did against Bernd Leno in the same game, whilst Xhaka and Koscielny are the main worries ahead of the trip up [...]

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

By |2019-04-02T07:30:41+01:00April 2nd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Review, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

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 [...]
