Keeping Arsenal players fit for the Christmas countdown

Morning all, how we all doing then, eh? I have a bit of a headache this Monday morning. It's not the kind of selection headache Mikel Arteta seems to have these days (ba-dum, tsch!) but an actual headache caused by sleep depravation on Saturday evening following a rather unhealthy amount of white and red wine [...]

Are Arsenal planning far enough ahead?

Morning all. How are we all doing today? We're over halfway, there is that. This time next week it'll all be about the Arsenal build up and we can put this dreaded international break to bed. But let's try to take something positive from what is unfolded in front of our eyes, which is that [...]

Solving international break problems; hoping Arsenal’s summer is being solved now

Ahh man, isn't this international break just the worst, eh? I don't know what it is about this particular one, but it feels like it is properly dragging on to me. It's only Thursday. We have ANOTHER week of this. Plus the warm glow of victory is starting to wear off, yet the dull ache [...]

More time needed for both Wenger and Arsenal

Wednesday morning, the internal break hasn't even kicked off and I'm already bored of it. It's funny because when we lose I view the internationals as either a painfully slow creepy death in terms of football (i.e. you can't get 'back on the wagon' with a result), or a momentum killer (i.e. what happens if [...]

Is there an upside to all international call ups for Arsenal?

By |2021-11-09T07:28:24+00:00November 9th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Defence, Internationals, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

I've kind of gotten used to the fact that a number of our players usually get 'rest' time during the international breaks. We've seen other teams in the league see half of their squads go away, but we've been able to keep plenty of lads back  and have them prepare for the next Premier League [...]

Arsenal’s solid foundations help the win over Watford

As I exited the ground yesterday with the three points secured, I asked my Dad to reflect on the game and the performance and he said 'it was a funny old game, wasn't it?'. Indeed it was Pa, indeed it was. Arsenal controlled possession, scored goals, had big chances in the form of a penalty, [...]

Watford to mirror Arsenal’s formation, so we must step up

This'll be a quick one today as I'm off to have a pre match meal with the family in Islington before the old man and I make our way to the game. Watford at home in the old days - like six or seven years ago - would be one in which you'd be wondering [...]

Arteta still learning

By |2021-11-06T09:54:37+00:00November 6th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference|0 Comments

I watched the 30 minute video on Mikel Arteta this morning. He talked a lot about 'unity' and his time so far as he approaches 100 games tomorrow and I thought it was a nice piece from Amy Lawrence who interviewed him. I'm losing track about the number of times I've said how strong his [...]

We need Xhaka for January and Tierney for Liverpool next week

By |2021-11-05T07:37:04+00:00November 5th, 2021|analysis, Arsenal, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Well the good news appears to be that the squad injury update ahead of the game against Watford on Sunday is positive. Only Kieran Tierney and Granit Xhaka remain doubts. For Xhaka the main worry is in the wording from the clubs medical team that he is expected to be in full training in the [...]
