Guten morgen folks and welcome to Europa League matchday. Right, plenty to be talking about, so let's get straight to it, starting briefly with Mesut Ozil and his statement I'm starting with this because if I'm honest it has been done to death and I don't really want to dwell too much on it. He [...]

Frustration at Arsenal playing within themselves against Man City

By |2020-10-18T09:08:23+01:00October 18th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Formation, Match Review, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Ahh man, do I feel frustrated this morning, after that result yesterday. Going up to Man City and being in the game, losing by the odd goal, is nothing to be ashamed of. But I can't help but think there was a real element of us not rolling the dice at times yesterday against last [...]

Starting the Partey tonight? Formation options for Man City

Morning folks and welcome to another matchday in another weird fanless season. Today it is another one of those dreaded trips up to Manchester and just because I am the kind of person who likes to inflict misery on myself, I decided to try to work out how many times in the League we have [...]

Saka and Pepe spring to life to down the Blades

By |2020-10-05T08:16:20+01:00October 5th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Formation, Match Review, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics, Transfers|0 Comments

After seeing what unfolded yesterday in most of the other games, there's something very satisfying about a relatively 'normal' victory over a disciplined Sheffield United side, like we got at home yesterday lunchtime. United were a travesty and Liverpool just forgot who they were, whereas Leicester also had an off day against West Ham so [...]

Arsenal’s “free hit” against Liverpool tonight

By |2020-09-28T07:54:18+01:00September 28th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Much like the last game we played - Leicester in the Carabao Cup - tonight's game is a weird one for me because it really doesn't feel like a game in which we should worry too much about. I mean obviously it's a big game and I'm sure i'll be nervous by the time kick [...]

Arteta coy on Jorginho, but focused on Liverpool’s ‘waves’

By |2020-09-27T09:21:29+01:00September 27th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, midfield, Mikel Arteta, Tactics, Transfers|0 Comments

Morning folks. Hope you’re enjoying your Arsenal-free weekend? Actually, that’s wrong, because yesterday the Women’s team beat Spurs in a cup game that was shown on BBC 2 and I have to say, I rather enjoyed it, although I suspect that’s because it was an opportunity for us to smash them so that’s always fun. [...]

Arteta needs to ‘rope-a-dope’ against Rodgers’ press tonight

By |2020-09-23T08:20:35+01:00September 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, League Cup, Match Preview, Tactics|1 Comment

Morning all and welcome to another matchday, at the beginning of what is a very tough month's worth of fixtures, starting with Leicester City away in the Carabao Cup this evening. It's a game in which I don't think there's been a full press conference due to the timings, but Mikel did spend a little [...]

West Ham preview: excitement over Arteta’s selection headaches

By |2020-09-19T09:00:47+01:00September 19th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Matchday! Get in! These are some of the best ones of the season for me because: 1. There’s still the excitement of how this season is going to pan out. 2. You haven’t been fatigued by the volume of games, often made worse if Arsenal are terrible, or the season has deflated like an old [...]

Arsenal must silence potential Mitrovic/Knockheart partnership today

Iiiiiiiiiiit's MATCHDAY! Yep, I'm excited, despite all of my cynicism about the Project Restart, despite the fact we still don't quite have the balance right in midfield (as Mikel alluded to in his press conference yesterday), as well as the fact that we have a mountain of injuries already. I'm still so excited to see [...]

Arteta and Arsenal’s midfield test at the Community Shield today

Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]
