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. [...]

Boring Burnley, boring Arsenal, boring draws and a boring Premier League

By |2020-02-03T11:41:22+00:00February 3rd, 2020|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

well there are some things in life that feel as certain as death and taxes and, right now, Arsenal drawing and Burnley fans booing absolutely anything they could possibly muster are such things. Yesterday's 0-0 was our 13th in a season that has seen us only lose six games, but only win six and these [...]

Silence booey Burnley by a quick start, Arsenal

Morning all and welcome to match day. Have sampled the delights of a  Saturday 3pm kick off a couple weekend's ago, we've had it whipped away from us with another Sunday game, this time with an away trip to Burnley kicking off at 2pm this afternoon. Ahh Burnley, with the 'booiest' fans in the Premier [...]

The dominant Arsenal kids do the business in Bournemouth

I wondered what type of Arsenal we'd get for yesterday evening's FA Cup fourth round away tie to Bournemouth. On the GT Radio show last night I missed that each match had played out very differently so far: One game in which we'd not taken our chances and were frustrated (Bournemouth away in the league) [...]

Arsenal have a ‘free hit’ away at Chelsea tonight

On Saturday morning I was uber positive about Arsenal getting the result and all three points against Sheffield United at home. I thought that despite injuries, suspensions and recent misfortune on VAR, we'd manage to grab ourselves some precious points on our own turf. Unfortunately I hadn't bargained on the fact that the footballing gods [...]
