Arteta won’t rise to the bait ahead of the NLD

Press conferences always give a little bit of a nugget of info about the upcoming game, but the press don't usually use it to gain some kind of insight into how the clubs might tactically set up, instead using it as an opportunity to stoke the fires of possible discontent and rivalry between managers. So [...]

Auba, Guendouzi and Leicester – Monday musings

Happy Monday peeps. Yesterday I had a stinking hangover, so didn’t compile any thoughts on the Wolves result, but I gotta tell ya I was mighty impressed I have to say. It was the first ‘statement victory’ that we have had under Arteta and no wonder he had such a beaming smile afterwards. I know [...]

Arteta’s confidence (on Auba and more) will transmit to this Arsenal team

By |2020-07-03T07:58:44+01:00July 3rd, 2020|Arsenal Manager, contracts, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

So we had Tricky Micky Arteta's press conference yesterday rather than today, which means we have something to stick our teeth into before this working week is done, which is nice. It must also mean that the team are making their moves up north today I'd imagine; probably because they got so lambasted by the [...]

Mikel’s Ozil stance is bang on, as is the clubs’ Luiz stand

By |2020-06-19T07:37:51+01:00June 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, contracts, Defence, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to the end of another week. It's all gone a bit Pete Tong for me this week because, having had to suffer through the debacle up at City - inspired by our clumsy Brazilian centre half - last night I spilt boiling hot vegetable oil on my fingers, so this morning [...]

Arteta’s presser shows us a statesman

By |2020-06-16T07:58:54+01:00June 16th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

Hold the phone, we have ourselves a press conference, which means football has never felt closer! And I'm giddy like a little schoolchild. So perhaps I should take some time to hold my hands up and admit that I didn't think I'd feel this excited when the lockdown and postponement was of the Premier League [...]

Torreira and his flesh wound; Arteta and his injury woes

By |2020-03-06T08:00:46+00:00March 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, injuries, Mikel Arteta, press conference|0 Comments

We had ourselves a press conference yesterday, so Tricky Micky has given me some delicious content to get stuck in to this morning. Always useful on a Friday. First up, the team news and the Lucas Torreira question has been raised after the medical team confirmed he'd suffered a fractured ankle in that scissor challenge [...]

FA Cup thoughts from a gooner: To Schadenfreude or not to Schadenfreude…

By |2020-03-05T08:32:29+00:00March 5th, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

I'm trying to work out this morning how hard to go in on the schadenfreude with the scum after they crashed out of the FA Cup on penalties to Norwich last night. I mean on the one hand I want to get stuck in two footed and laugh my t*ts off, but then I think about the [...]

The perfect non-Arsenal football weekend

By |2020-03-01T09:33:31+00:00March 1st, 2020|Arsenal FC, FA Cup, gooners, Gunners, History, Mikel Arteta, press conference|1 Comment

If you could map out a football weekend this season in which Arsenal don’t play, but you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time, well this weekend has so far been it. Leicester lost on Friday. Chelski drew yesterday. But the biggest ‘tick’ of the weekend was Liverpool being spanked 3-0 by Watford. It means no [...]

Strike early, Arsenal, strike fast

Morning peeps. Happy match day to thee and thine kin. Hopefully it’s an Arsenal-victory flavoured one. A fourth win on the bounced would be rather delicious and tonight provides that opportunity with a home second leg against Olympiakos. We did half of the job in Greece with the late Lacazette strike and with the Greek’s [...]

City future means nothing to Arsenal; Arteta planning all the variables

The big story of yesterday obviously doesn't include The Arsenal, but as always, when you hear a story the likes of the City one and the magnitude of it you start to apply your own thoughts relating to your own club. My first thoughts were "is Champions League now more attainable if fifth place gets [...]
