I saw a post from somebody I follow on Twitter yesterday and they said that they simply aren't feeling the nerves ahead of Sunday. I also listened to the Arsenal Vision podcast yesterday on my run and Clive was talking about how emotionally he had just put a bit of a pin in his feelings [...]

Here we go folks. The Big Weekend is amongst us and tomorrow we face off against a historical big foe in Man United, knowing that only victory gives us a slim chance of winning the Premier League. And let's be honest here, it is a 'slim' chance. I'm not trying to be deliberately negative or [...]

We're halfway through the week, halfway to our next cup final and as awesome as it's been drinking in all of the salty Scum tears, the focus absolutely has to switch to the challenge of Bournemouth, who will not be an easy opponent on Saturday lunchtime. One person I will be hoping that is in [...]

Saka’s return will be timely for Brighton

I went for my afternoon run first thing this morning, which has its benefits because rather than speculate on what Arteta has to say in his press conference today, it's happening literally as I type out today's ramblings. So I have a bity of a real time reaction opportunity this Friday morn, which is novel. [...]

I never normally watch the opposition match press conference, but given the build up to this massive game tomorrow and given how significant it could impact both City and Arsenal's season, I thought I'd have a little sneak peak at pep's comments in his presser. Obviously I was also intrigued on how he delivered news [...]

Arteta’s psychology to fuel Brentford game

By |2024-03-08T09:00:42+00:00March 8th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

In classic Chris style, yesterday I predicted that we wouldn't get Arteta's press conference until today, so of course Arteta went in front of the press yesterday to talk about the upcoming showdown against Brentford tomorrow in the early evening. If you ever see me at the races, bet on the horses I'm not picking! [...]

First and foremost, before we get cracking on the team news following Arteta's presser yesterday, a word for Declan Rice, who won the London footballer of the year award at a ceremony last night. A fully deserved award who helped bring a trophy to West Ham and who has joined Arsenal for a big fee [...]

Arsenal must bring the noise against Newcastle tonight

Ahead of these types of games like the one we have tonight against Newcastle, I often like to have a little hunt around for opposing fan views, to see what their general vibe is, how they are feeling ahead of the game, etc. after all it is those kind of message boards, forums and blogs [...]

Porto was a good preparation for Newcastle’s antics

Morning folks - hope we're all in fine Friday form, despite the bad taste of Wednesday night's defeat. On the one hand it left a bitter taste and that's still circulating my mind, body and soul. But on the other hand we have the opportunity to expel that and replace it with the flavourful taste [...]

Can you change a winning side? Should you?

There's little time for basking this week, as Champions League is back on the menu and tomorrow night Arsenal take to the pitch in the first of our two-legged tie against Porto for a spot in the quarter final. It's an old-familiar foe for us; during the consistency years of always finishing fourth under Wenger, [...]
