Arteta’s impressive presser breathes hope for City away

As we all suspected it was a press conference day yesterday and, whilst I still don’t think we’ll be getting anything from the game on Wednesday night, Arteta’s convictions and the way he articulated himself in the press conference, had me thinking that maybe...just maybe...he has some kind of blueprint for success. It’s unlikely because [...]

A second half step up from The Arsenal against Portsmouth

Well, we got there in the end and, despite some pretty decent concerted effort from Portsmouth in the first half against The Arsenal last night, the job was done and we are into the bowl for the next round of the FA Cup. It wasn’t easy though. Far from it in the first half and [...]

Ring the changes tonight, Arsenal: let’s see some of the future

It’s another Monday match day for us and it’s another silver trinket that we’re fighting for at the end of the road, as we take the trip to Fratyon Park to face a Portsmouth side who will be no mugs tonight I’m sure. Portsmouth may be a couple of divisions down from us in League [...]

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 [...]

Keep the crowd quiet and score first tonight, Arsenal

I’ve got that song in my head from Home Alone 2. You know the one “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” by Johnny Mathis? Yep, that one, only I’ve replaced some of the words to create a new version circling my brain on repeat: It’s the most wonderful time, of the week.... Yes [...]

Arsenal’s attackers deliver end product against Newcastle

Well, I think it’s fair to say that yesterday afternoon’s home game against Newcastle United ended up being a lot of fun by the time it reached its conclusion, didn’t it? It all started with a curveball. Firstly from Arteta’s first team selection, then by the fact that Newcastle didn’t look as bad as I [...]

Refreshed Arsenal need to lay down a marker against Newcastle – match preview

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]

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 [...]

Arteta’s mini pre-season; all eyes on the return fixtures

By |2020-02-07T07:28:45+00:00February 7th, 2020|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, pre season, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This morning, I be mostly thinking about....mini pre seasons. We're in one right now. It's a winter break in which Arteta has taken the lads out to Dubai to bond, talk tactics, probably look at opponents and most likely give a little bit of a reset on what has happened over the last six weeks. [...]
