Brighton away: Not vintage, but confidence restoring for The Arsenal

You know the phrase "the ends justify the means"? Well, having seen Arsenal look a little laboured yesterday, but ultimately pick up three points away to Brighton yesterday in the Premier League, I feel like that phrase aptly describes our overall performance yesterday evening on the south coast. That's because Arsenal's performance was hardly the [...]

Fresh blood for Arsenal could see a fresh feeling in the Europa League

By |2020-11-25T07:57:08+00:00November 25th, 2020|Arsenal, Defence, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, youth|0 Comments

The squad flew out to Norway yesterday afternoon and I have to say I've never been more pleased to see so many young faces board the plane. I realise that the Europa League squads are massive and five subs enables the manager to name a bigger squad and give more players game time, but with [...]

Partey needs to create his own Arsenal history; can Nketiah surpass Kane?

With Ghana wrapping up their irrelevant friendlies yesterday we finally got to see an interview with Thomas Partey in Arsenal club colours. It was the usual glossy affair with pictures of the man himself, then a training ground three-minute video in which he said what a great club Arsenal were and how he watched the [...]

Can Smith-Rowe fill Arsenal’s creative void alone?

Morning all and happy Friday to you. Not long now and we can stick a collective two fingers up to this disaster of a Premier League season. Can't wait. I don't really want to look ahead too much at the Watford game because, frankly, it is of little consequence to me. So last night and [...]

Hang on a minute…’Gritty Arsenal grind out 1-0 win away’???

Morning folks. It feels weird this morning. It feels very weird. We won, which is good. We won back-to-back games, which is also good. But we also did it in a style and approach that was resolute, dogged and whilst not always pretty on the eye, it did the job. Arsenal 'getting the job done'. [...]

Emery dodges again, as rotation is on the cards at Anfield

Another game day this evening, this time in the League Cup, but forgive me if I'm not too optimistic about the game tonight. It's at Anfield, we seem to be on our knees as a club, we've got a captain who has gone radio silent and a manager who won't actually show any leadership and [...]

Golden ‘Meh’ for Guendouzi; Nketiah’s trajectory needs close attention

Effin insomnia. Screw you and screw you again. Jet-lag infused nastiness has meant I've been up since 3am this morning and I've got a long ol' day in the office followed by an evening black tie do. I don't think they make a caffeine-based drink strong enough to be honest. Still, it can't be worse [...]

Liverpool a good test for the youth; Emery’s “meritocracy” isn’t showing

So it appears as though our reward for a comprehensive victory over Nottingham Forest is an away trip to Anfield for the fourth round of the League Cup in October. After the scousers youth team overcame MK Dons we were drawn against them and, weirdly, I'm kind of glad we are. Not because I think [...]

Fun in the shower for Arsenal’s rotated team against Forest

Well now wasn't that a bit of fun to watch last night? It didn't matter that it was bucketing it down because for those that made the trip to The Emirates last night they were treated to a goal-fest and some great performances from some of those rotated players. In fact I'd say that there [...]
