It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Man City preview: All Arsenal have is hope

By |2021-08-28T09:45:44+01:00August 28th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

I don't think there's many people on this planet who could argue a case for Arsenal getting anything today. It really does feel like we have two hopes: Bob Hope and No Hope, against the Champions of England, on their home turf. There is nothing to suggest that even a draw would be possible, given [...]

Arsenal depressingly never laid a glove on Chelsea

I don't know what was worse about yesterday's defeat to Chelski; the actual defeat, or the horrible predictability of how the game would go. I thought we'd concede early. We did. I thought they'd get a second and it would kill the game. It did. I thought we'd barely be able to fashion any chances [...]

Arteta needs a strong start

Match-day! Whoop! After gawd knows how long, we finally have a game with a full house of fans and even though I’m on a stag weekend in Edinburgh and none of the gents are football fans, there’s no way I won’t be watching tonight’s game from my phone. It’s an irritating one because Brentford is [...]

Trippier’s a no; Willock in the hole?

I had a skin full of booze yesterday. So to wake up this morning with a fuzzy head and see that Arsenal are linked with a £34million bid for 30-year-old Kieran Trippier doesn’t help my general state of mind. I just hope this is a ‘we’ve got papers to sell’ rumour because that price and [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]

White done. Lautaro next?

There's only one place to start this morning, which is with the official signing of Ben White confirmed by the club. He'll wear the number four shirt and when speaking to the Arsenal fan that interviewed him yesterday, I think he came across really well and he's clearly very happy to be here. It is [...]

Arsenal’s shape and fitness is starting to show

I know pre season friendlies aren't supposed to mean anything, that you can't read too much in to them and that had we lost yesterday's 'behind closed doors' friendly at London Colney to Milwall then we'd all have shrugged and said 'move along', but I have to tell you I did enjoy watching the game [...]

Villareal and Emery will look to hit Arsenal on the counter

Well folks, this feels like it could be pretty much it tonight, what it all boils down to and should the worst happen this evening and we sh*t the bed against Unai Emery's Villareal then the season is essentially finished in all but name. It feels like last chance saloon for Mikel and his charges [...]
