I've got to be completely frank with you, I absolutely cannot stand the North London Derby. There are people that say they look forward to it, that it is a great opportunity to do one over the old enemy and when it comes to the post match bliss after a win I can totally understand [...]

Some good, some less good, team news for Arsenal

I do love waking up to a Saturday morning in which the sun is shining and the birds are chirping away. It's a shame there isn't any Arsenal to look forward to, but such is life, so we'll just have to accept that we have to wait until tomorrow afternoon before we get ourselves some [...]

Praying for Arteta’s admission of errors

There was no press conference yesterday so it'll mean we'll get to hear from Mikel Arteta today and although today is titled 'Good Friday' in the Christin calendar, I'm not expecting any 'good' news from the injury front. I suspect it'll simply be that the players that are injured are still injured, that we have [...]

Focus and five subs – Arteta press conference thoughts

The arrival of yesterday's press conference was a timely reminder that the infernal international break is now behind us and we can fully focus on all things Arsenal and Premier League, which is a-ok with me. Arteta talked about the need to refocus his players after the international break and whilst the team news is [...]

The Cedric wave and the Tierney unpredictability

Mikel had his press conference yesterday and of course the natural course of events is to first find out about the team news. The good is that Emile Smith Rowe is back having trained a couple of times after contracting COVID last week. The bad is there is still no sign of Tomiyasu. My biggest [...]

Arteta says nice things about our players…

Mikel Arteta is about six months older than me. I'm more fair-haired than he is, so my greys don't show as easily, but there's no way that he doesn't dye his hair, I don't believe it. And as for those white teeth, well, I can spot a bleacher when I see one. Anyhoo, on to [...]

Building something at Arsenal, building leaders

Morning Gooners and welcome to Friday. We'll hopefully get a press conference this morning, unless London Colney has blown away with all the high winds we're seeing in the UK right now. There's a that has been brewing and it isn't Mikel's latest falling out that is causing the ruckus, but instead Mother Nature that [...]

Arteta’s admission on transfer movement is good news this January

Before I start talking about the press conference and some of the more interesting parts of it for me yesterday, I thought I'd just mention Arsenal's campaign against knife crime that was released yesterday, with a video and also confirmation that Arsenal will wear an all white kit for the game against Nottingham Forest in [...]

Arsenal must constantly reinvent themselves to succeed

Morning all and welcome to Friday. Hope you're all feeling good? I had to take the first of my lateral flow 'countdown to Christmas' tests this morning. I didn't go to West Ham on Wednesday because I didn't want to risk it, plus the fact I was in the Tollington on Saturday and it was [...]
