Ahh man....my head hurts...four hours at the pub yesterday afternoon and a tomahawk steak for dinner and I have all the meat sweats and head pains. What I could really do with now is a bit of greasy food and then an Arsenal lunchtime win. I really don't want my brain to hurt more because [...]

Arteta needs to be rolling the substitutes dice better

Isn't it just the most 'Arsenal' thing ever to have a fully fit squad a month or so ago, yet here we are approaching crunch time, when things are decided and shiny silver trinkets are to be won, with players dropping like flies. After the game on Sunday evening Arteta gave a brief update and [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

By |2021-04-11T09:40:36+01:00April 11th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, injuries, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]

Momentum more than points for Arsenal against Liverpool

Morning folks and here we are, finally back to a match day, thank gawd. Only it's a match day in which if we're honest probably doesn't have that much riding on it. Liverpool come to town and despite their poor form, they are still a side to be feared and we are a side who [...]

Arsenal must keep calm and their heads against Olympiakos tonight

Match day is here and it is European football again for us this evening, although hopefully not for the last time this season, as we would like safe passage to the quarter finals please, footballing gods. We take a more commanding lead into this game compared to the same fixture against Olympiakos last season, but [...]

Arsenal must avoid the early Burnley goal at all costs today

Morning folks. Hope you're having a good one. I have spent the morning awake since 5.50am as The Management's decision to have a kitten is coming back to bite us. Not literally, but figuratively speaking, as the little toe rag spent the morning pulling clothes out of the washing basket and generally making a racket [...]

Benfica at “home” – the first goal sets the tone of the game

So here we are folks. This will either be the latest in a number of important match days for Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal team this season, or it will be the last meaningful match day for Arsenal, as we take on Olympiak......sorry....Benfica....in Athens to progress to the next stage of the Europa League and [...]

Arsenal’s defeat to City: walking in No Man’s Land

I'm struggling to properly put my feelings in to proper context this morning, with regards to yesterday's defeat to Man City at home, because I have a mixture of disappointment and acceptance of what we all watched. When I write about Arsenal in a post match review of what went on I tend to view [...]

Can Arsenal lay a glove on Man City?

We had ourselves a video update from the manager yesterday ahead of the home game against Man City on Sunday and, as expected, Mikel Arteta was more than happy to wax lyrical about the team he was coach at just over a year ago. Of course all the way up there in Manchester we also [...]

Benfica: Arsenal must emphasize attack in first leg and away goals

By |2021-02-18T07:43:34+00:00February 18th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Europa Leagur, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, Tactics|0 Comments

Morning folks and welcome to match day Thursday, with the Europa League in our sights, as a trip to Benfica on the horizon. Well, I say 'trip to Benfica', but what I actually mean is 'neutral venue as part of two legs. Because As I bemoaned yesterday, the farce that is this current situation where [...]
