Returning player boost, plus one to come out from the cold?

WE HAVE SOME ARSENAL FIRST TEAM CONTENT PEOPLE!! Thank frigg for that, because that last international break was really getting on my wick. You know how sometimes these breaks can go quite quickly? No, me either, because that one get long. Probably longer than the others. It was maddening. But Unai did his "Good afternoon" [...]

Laca’s loss is Nelson’s gain – can he deliver?

So, boys and girls, what did we learn from yesterday's pre-match presser with Unai Emery ahead of the travel to Watford on Sunday? Well, for one thing, we're going to be missing Alexandre Lacazette for the game, plus for the rest of September, which also rules him out of that game at Old Trafford in [...]

Emery’s NLD dilemmas: Monreal, front three and tactical set up

Unai's pre match presser had a wee bit of unexpected positive news yesterday, as it seems that Holding, Bellerin and Tierney might just be all back in to full training after the international break. Of course they're likely to not be ready for first team action for a few weeks, but it looks like Holding [...]

Happy first y'all. I'm in a grand ol' mood I can tell you that much. The sun is in the sky in the South East, the weekend is within touching distance, it's going to be a warm one in England and a bank holiday to boot. If only there wasn't the pesky notion of having [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]
