Happy Friday all. I have a slightly sore head, what with Thursday being the new Friday and my working running a 'welcome to the company' drinks for all of the new people that have recently joined the business (of which I am one). It's great fun, is midweek drinking, until you wake up the next [...]

Familiar faces at Newcastle tomorrow for Arsenal

Happy Saturday folks and welcome to the start of the new season. Even though Arsenal don't play until tomorrow I'm still happy it's here and after feeling like I could go a good six months without any football after the travesty that was the Europa League final, here I am, back again and raring to [...]

Top four is done, but Laca could still fire us to Europa League success

Unai faced the media yesterday and as usual never really said anything of interest, also not confirming whether Cech will play his last game of the season tomorrow against Brighton. I'd like to say that Brighton will have nothing to play for if they are safe, but Palace didn't, which didn't stop us from absolutely [...]

Emery says something, which isn’t anything; back to basics Arsenal

After a day in which Unai Emery has had a press conference ahead of a game I like to have a little read over his comments on the official website to see if there's anything that I can glean that gives an insight in to how the team will set up in the upcoming match. [...]

Don’t get mad on Sunday Gooners: Unai’s getting rotation right

Happy Easter Saturday to you. I do like Easter Saturday. Despite not being particularly religious, I do - for the sake of the in-laws family - observe the 'no booze' rule on 'Good-but-should-be-called-rubbish Friday' and being up in the North East I always find myself craving a beer. So yesterday was a tough one. But [...]

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 [...]

Excited about Rennes and rueful over Kolasinac and other rumours

Morning folks. Just 24 hours before we head in to our ongoing European adventure and I'm really looking forward to the game. That's because the team feels like it's got a bit of cohesion about it and although we played away against the Tiny Totts last weekend, that game probably needs to be taken in [...]

At least Arsenal have form and at least we’re still in the hunt

Well here we go folks. It's the countdown to the North London Derby and that will start with a press conference from Unai Emery at some stage today no doubt. Mercifully at least we have a bit of form going in to this one. I know "it all goes out the window" for the NLDs [...]

Waiting for Unai and Özil to skip out together

Alright? Having a good'un? Waiting patiently for some form of team news to deep through about tomorrow night's game? I hear ya. Totally in the same boat. I wonder if Unai is dreading the inevitable "are you gonna ply Özil then?" Questions from the media? He'll surely get fired a few and usually there's a [...]

Returning injuries give Emery food for Europa League thought

I guess one of the benefits of the new job I have is that because I often have to do early morning calls my commute into London is a little later than in my previous role. That's a benefit from a blog perspective because it means I'm writing today's instalment having just seen the team [...]
