What to do with Patino, Balogun and Nketiah?

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. Well, what do we have right now then, in terms of Arsenal news, eh? It always goes a little quiet after a win like this and the introspection and teeth gnashing stops a little, or at least slows down, so it's nice having a little look around the internet [...]

A rally cry for SOME of the players already at The Arsenal

By |2021-06-08T08:02:20+01:00June 8th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, youth|1 Comment

Morning folks. I don't normally make a habit of signposting  people in a different direction to another part of the internet at the beginning of my usual daily ramblings, but I was particularly impressed with this week's Arsecast, in which Andrew and James had a chat about transfers, what's on the horizon (or not as [...]

Arteta needs to be rolling the substitutes dice better

By |2021-04-13T07:45:42+01:00April 13th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, Tactics, youth|0 Comments

Isn't it just the most 'Arsenal' thing ever to have a fully fit squad a month or so ago, yet here we are approaching crunch time, when things are decided and shiny silver trinkets are to be won, with players dropping like flies. After the game on Sunday evening Arteta gave a brief update and [...]

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

By |2020-12-30T09:19:24+00:00December 30th, 2020|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league, youth|0 Comments

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?

By |2020-10-14T08:16:00+01:00October 14th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, Europa League, History, Mikel Arteta, premier league, youth|0 Comments

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?

By |2020-07-24T08:29:17+01:00July 24th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, midfield, Mikel Arteta, youth|2 Comments

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’???

By |2020-02-21T08:55:52+00:00February 21st, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Defence, Europa League, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, youth|0 Comments

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

By |2019-10-30T07:51:13+00:00October 30th, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, League Cup, Match Preview, Unai Emery, youth|1 Comment

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 [...]
