Holding’s dreadlocks to help win the FA Cup for Arsenal?

T-minus 57 hours and counting from the FA Cup Final as I type out today's Arsenal-related nonsense and I have to say I feel just as nervous as I have done all week. As I've already said on a podcast and the blog, this could all go very well or very bad and mentally I'm [...]

Arsenal – Hard “No’s” on Partey, Coutinho, Willian and Zaha

Happy Wednesday folks, as we rapidly approach the 'Sliding Doors' moment that is our FA Cup Final on Saturday, given the possible outcomes we could face. Win and there's a little more cash in the coffers and an opportunity to play European Football next season. Lose and we stare down the barrel of the no [...]

Arteta is our optimisim, when in reality there could be little

By |2020-07-28T07:45:57+01:00July 28th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Why do I feel like this might be a long week? Last night Ben, Steve and I recorded our penultimate 'Suburbs' podcast on GunnersTown and aside from the fact that we were all nervously laughing about how bad we were against Watford and Villa, the fact that an FA Cup Final looms on the horizon [...]

Thank goodness that Premier League season is over

The best part about yesterday's 3-2 victory over Watford was when Mike Dean put his whistle to his lips and called time on this latest Premier League season. I have been on this earth for 37-and-a-half years and as far as I can remember this has been one of the worst that I've had to [...]

Arteta impresses again, but admits to some challenges, amidst uncertainty

Plenty to get through today, after Arteta had his press conference ahead of Sunday’s dead rubber, the Premier League fixtures for next season were confirmed, as well as the disappointing news that Mustafi will miss the cup final due to the injury he picked up in the Semi Final last week. You really have to [...]

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 [...]

Kids against Watford, Arsenal against Antony Taylor and ‘no thanks’ for Coutinho

By |2020-07-23T07:57:02+01:00July 23rd, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, FA Cup, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Transfers|0 Comments

There's a couple of things on my mind this morning, as this season finally drags it's sorry arse into closing, thank gawd, which I think is a sentiment all Arsenal fans can get behind. The kids against Watford? In my mind this is an obvious 'yes', but I am a child of the 80s and [...]

Are we not allowed nice things as Arsenal fans?

Well if that wasn't the crappy Yin to last weekend's fantastic Yang... Are we not allowed to have nice things? Are we not allowed to bask in the glory of a really resolute and fantastic performance? Because it feels like it with this Arsenal side. As brilliant as they were against Man City, yesterday they were as [...]

Rotation a must, but a few goals and a win is also essential against Villa

By |2020-07-21T08:01:54+01:00July 21st, 2020|Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

Wolves' win yesterday against a pathetic and hapless Crystal Palace - already on the beach (and how the hell did they pick up two draws against us? Oh yeah, VAR...) and not fussed either way - means that the chances of Arsenal qualifying for Europe via the league are reliant on so many permutations going [...]

Arteta’s rotation dilemma ahead of Villa tomorrow

Morning folks and welcome to the penultimate week of this season, finally drawing to a close with a trip to Villa Park, followed by Watford at home next Sunday. And to add to that we now know our fate in terms of the FA Cup Final in just under two week's time, as Chelski smashed [...]
