Don’t fall into the United counter attack trap, Arsenal

Frustratingly, because I've got overseas travel with work today, I'll not find out the result of the game until about 7pm tonight. Which isn't exactly helping my nervous disposition when I think about the game in general. This - as well as Rennes at home on Thursday next week - is season defining for Emery [...]

Unai needs to lift Arsenal ahead of biggest week off the season

Isn't it just the modern day football fan that we're so well informed as to what goes on thanks to an over saturation of news and content, that when the news came out that Monchi was leaving Roma yesterday, a fair few Arsenal fans (myself included) looked at the situation and exclaimed delight that hopefully [...]

No rotation at Rennes for Arsenal

Last night we saw the unlikely happen with United and I have to say it made me slightly more nervous for this Sunday's game. I'm glad we're in form and at home but they will be on cloud nine in terms of morale and confidence right now and that word I keep bleating on about [...]

Arsenal have momentum despite frustrating draw at Spurs

Yesterday morning I was pessimistic about our chances of taking any points at all so, given that I was expecting us to take a pounding against the tiny Totts at Wembley, the fact that come 3pm I was disappointed that we hadn't picked up all three points I think needs to be seen as a [...]

Arsenal need to minimise the space on the flanks against Tottenham today

Here we are then. Derby day. The away leg of it and the one Premier League game of the season I hate the most. It doesn't help that we've only won one in 16 and with those numbers it feels like today is going to be an uphill struggle against the Tiny Totts. I get [...]

At least Arsenal have form and at least we’re still in the hunt

Well here we go folks. It's the countdown to the North London Derby and that will start with a press conference from Unai Emery at some stage today no doubt. Mercifully at least we have a bit of form going in to this one. I know "it all goes out the window" for the NLDs [...]

Arsenal delivering swagger against Bournemouth ahead of NLD

That's more like it Arsenal! Much more enjoyable an evening at The Emirates. And I'm thankful that given it's the last time I rock up in North London for a whole month due to work comments, FA Cup weekends and a plethora of away games, I got to see Arsenal strong together two decent halves [...]

Arsenal need to press high, force errors in Bournemouth

Midweek match days. I love 'em. Not least because it gives you something to look forward to after the monotony of a day at the office. Not that I don't like my job - I actually find it quite rewarding - but if you gave me the choice of not doing it and sitting at [...]

‘One half Arsenal’ strikes again against Southampton

Perhaps we're a little too greedy as Arsenal fans. Perhaps we want too much? Because after yesterday's victory over Southampton, which saw us tiptoe into the top four after United's draw, I found myself wishing that we could play like we did in the first half but in the second as well. And I wasn't [...]

Go attacking again against the Saints, Unai

Howdy folks. Match day. Best day of the week. Well, usually is, especially when it's a home game and usually I'm off to The Arsenal but this week I have a family event that prevents me from going. I'm not bitter. Much. It's a religious thing as well so I'm hoping that my sacrifice that [...]
