Arsenal must win all the duels against Brentford

It's finally a Premier League match day again for The Arsenal and I've got that usual feeling of butterflies in the stomach that occur in the morning of a game. All week I've been thinking about Brentford, I've listened to podcast previews, I've ruminated on how the match might unfold and in my head I've [...]

Arteta coy on injuries as usual

Morning folks - we  all good? It was press conference day at The Arsenal yesterday and that meant an opportunity to get some updates from Mikel Arteta on the team, the Queen, as well as our opponents Brentford on Sunday, for which three points is the dream. Unsurprisingly for Arteta he didn't really tell  us [...]

Some rest for some Arsenal players is coming

Morning Gooners and welcome to Friday - hope we're all feeling grand? In the UK it has somewhat unexpectantly become a bank holiday this weekend because of the Queen's funeral, which means I'm up north visiting the in-laws, looking out on to a crystal clear Northumbrian morning as I type today. It's quite peaceful. I [...]

Can Arsenal sustain the good performance levels?

Morning folks and happy Thursday to you. Well, it would be a happy Thursday, were it a match day today, but unfortunately the match against PSV was called off, despite every other Europa League game seemingly go ahead, as well as in the Champions League. Go figure. At least we have the clarity on when the [...]

A mess of nobodies doing

Morning folks and happy Tuesday to you and yours. Hopefully you're feeling good and all is well? In the footballing world it all feels a little, well, unclear if I'm completely honest with you. Last weekend we had the postponement of football fixtures everywhere as a mark of respect, yet for most sports they continued [...]

The challenges and logistics of yet more potential postponements

By |2022-09-12T08:34:37+01:00September 12th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Europa League, premier league|0 Comments

With no Arsenal going on this weekend, the news from a football front is understandably light, unfortunately. I've made my point and stated my case with regards to the weekend's fixtures and I haven't seen anything to suggest to me that the decision to postpone the games was the right one, but there we are, [...]

The postponement of football this weekend is the wrong call

By |2022-09-10T09:20:25+01:00September 10th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, premier league, soccer|6 Comments

I understand that for many people today's topic is a rather controversial one. This weekend's Premier League matches, and indeed all football matches, have been postponed as a mark of respect for the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II. I have seen online and on TV of how this has impacted people and for some [...]

Marquinhos arrives with an impressive debut

Morning folks - hope you are all well. Before the usual match review stuff today, it is worth taking a moment to celebrate the life of Queen Elizabeth II of the UK, who died yesterday aged 96. I am certainly no royalist or major fan of the Royal Family, but she has always been a [...]

Mikel, please, rotation this evening!

I think with that title I've made my thoughts about what we should do this evening very plain and clear!! Tonight we're back in action on the European stage and whilst it's not the stage we want - and probably deserve - it is an opportunity for some more midweek football and I have to [...]
