Brighton at home – a 100% ‘must win’

Morning folks. Dropping you this match preview in the early hours of Thursday morning, ahead of what feels like a perpetual 'must win' for The Arsenal these days. Well, I've written it in the early hours, so please excuse the fact that there'll be even more typos than normal. Probably won't actually finish it until [...]

Freddie’s insightful presser gives hope ahead of Brighton

As a football fan you always look for the hole in a new situation and before the Norwich game I think we all did, as we backed Freddie, hoping for an instant turnaround. Of course it wasn't to be and yet again we saw some pretty shoddy defending that cost us all three points as [...]

Premier League campaign over with another draw

There's quite a big caveat in the analysis of yesterday's draw away to Norwich. That caveat is that Freddie Ljungberg has had barely a few hours inputting his ideas into this set of players. So perhaps yesterday's performance still bore the hallmarks of Emery's Arsenal. The caveat that Freddie has had such little time is [...]

More evidence of Arsenal’s failing leadership – Frankfurt defeat at home

Well now kids, how many of you could have predicted that an average, mid-table team from Germany, who have had patchy form, with no "official" supporters in the stadium (although we know they were there), would pick up three points against Unai Emery's shambolic Arsenal team? Just about everybody I reckon. This team is done. [...]

An empty Arsenal stadium to see some fun against Frankfurt tonight?

Have you ever felt so 'Meh' about a game in your life? Probably. There's games towards the end of the season when there's nothing left to play for that feel very pointless and although this match tonight has something riding on it - Europa League qualification to the k computer phase - it's hard to [...]

Southampton at home: win or bust for Unai Emery?

By |2019-11-23T08:33:41+00:00November 23rd, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Formation, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|0 Comments

I'm not sure if it actually will result in his permanent removal from the managerial position at Arsenal if the team doesn't win today, but by jove, I think it should. We've lost to Sheffield United and Leicester, drawn at home to Wolves and Crystal Palace and today we play a team as out of [...]

Another uninspiring Arsenal performance at Leicester – is Emery still here?

Sometimes I feel like I write about Arsenal out of some kind of habitual nature, because if I'm completely honest with you, I really don't feel that motivated to do it this morning. Yet here I am, Sunday morning, tapping away at my iPhone trying to make sense of what is going on at Arsenal [...]

A back three’s a brewing away to Leicester

By |2019-11-09T08:42:33+00:00November 9th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|2 Comments

It's match day today and the tam will most likely - unless they did last night - be on their way to face an in-form Leicester City side that I don't think many people have us down for victory for the evening. I can totally understand that and to be honest with you I am [...]

Torreira to outlast Unai Emery?

As if things can't feel like they seem any more farcical right now, we found out yesterday that Lucas Torreira wants talks with the manager because he is not happen with his current situation or his role in the Arsenal team, which to most of us is a 'well, duh' kind of moment really. That's [...]

Boring, boring Arsenal – more dropped points in Portugal

If anybody was expecting anything other than the turgid football we got last night, can you make yourself known to the nearest steward, because you might need some kind of psychological evaluation. Yesterday late afternoon Unai Emery's Arsenal side delivered an utter stinkfest, again, which saw us outplayed by a team who my mother asked [...]
