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 [...]

No Corporal return tonight, but the young players need to give Emery something to think about against Forest

By |2019-09-24T08:07:47+01:00September 24th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal Manager, Defence, League Cup, Match Preview, Unai Emery, youth|0 Comments

In just over 48 hours we have our second matchday, having only played Villa on Sunday and now the League Cup against Nottingham Forest just two days later. To put that in perspective it's like playing a Wednesday night Champions League game and then being on the bill for the Friday night football game on [...]

An Arsenal win in Frankfurt: not the perfect performance, but the perfect tonic

It's Friday, our last game is now no longer the disastrous performance at Watford, we have our first win in the Europa League and it was done away to what I think is the best team in the group that we will face. There's also the added benefit of a couple of young players really [...]

Mkhi’s ‘sad’ exit was right for the club and kids

It's still the international break and therefore there is still being football played, in which apparently England did something, but I hold it in as much importance as the next Beyoncé Knowles album. (For the avoidance of doubt, I hate Beyoncé's music) My brain is clearly desperate for its next Arsenal fix though, because last [...]
