A match day and a potential signing you say? Yep, we should get the official confirmation on Odergaard today and apologies if I spend the next six months not putting the diagonal line through his name, but in many ways I am a lazy man and given it is not right in front of me [...]

Sensible soccer signings in Ryan and Odegaard; Saints preview

Morning folks and welcome to Saturday. And it's a slightly different blog today because it appears as though not only we have a match to digest at lunchtime, but also a signing and one more that seems virtually on the way. On the one that is on the way - Odegaard - I'd like to [...]

Arsenal must be quicker in possession against Newcastle

By |2021-01-18T08:15:29+00:00January 18th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Match Preview, midfield, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

As the saga I spoke about rumbles further on with pictures and the like coming out yesterday early evening, mercifully we have something else to focus on, which is an important game at home to Newcastle United tonight. It's a game that if I'm completely honest with you about, I'm not exactly massively confident about. [...]

Arsenal must crack the tough Crystal Palace nut

By |2021-01-14T08:39:59+00:00January 14th, 2021|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, midfield, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

It's Crystal Palace at home today and it is the type of game that four or five years ago I'd be pretty confident about us getting a win. But last season and this has pretty much dented any of that "we're The Arsenal, we win this game today" mindset that I had developed over a [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Arsenal must break the Brighton hoodoo

Welcome to another match day folks and this, I have to say, has always been a frustrating one for me. Brighton and Hove Albion entertain us at 6pm on their turf and it’s been quite an unhappy hunting ground for us recently. Last season they shafted us in the last minute with a sucker punch [...]

Arsenal approaching Chelski like a small club underdog

By |2020-12-26T10:32:48+00:00December 26th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, History, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Boxing Day and match day. There was a time where I’d be pretty excited to have a bit of The Arsenal on at Christmas, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m not feeling overly confident and given that it’s been literally months since we won a Premier League game, the prospect of beating Chelski seems [...]

Arsenal’s balance and a high press might beat Wolves

By |2020-11-28T08:20:04+00:00November 28th, 2020|Attack, Defence, Formation, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Moring folks and welcome to Saturday. How you doing? Y'alreet? I'm fine, thanks for asking, although I did stay up too late watching The Good, The Bad and The Ugly last night and my body clock is such that it doesn't matter what time I go to bed, I'm always up around 7am. That's not [...]

Arteta needs to inject pace into Arsenal attack against Leeds

I believe I have some very real fears and trepidation about today’s game at Elland Road. The preparation the Arsenal players have had in the build up to this hasn’t been ideal, with injuries, COVID and the form of some of our players, plus I have some bad memories of defeats going up there I [...]

How Arsenal move the ball quicker from back to front

If ever you wanted an example of footballers not living in the normal world, it comes courtesy of Willian who supposedly if you read some of the stories from yesterday, decided to head off to Dubai during this international break. In normal times that'd be ok if he's been given a few days off but [...]
