Arsenal have lessons to learn to beat Liverpool

This is going to be hard tonight. Make no mistake about it. People can talk about Liverpool's frailties, about how Klopp doesn't seem to know how to set up a decent Liverpool defence, but this will test our Arsenal team significantly tonight. Defensively. Liverpool have a glut of players in form and plenty who know [...]

Do Arsenal have a development problem?

By |2017-12-18T08:13:23+00:00December 18th, 2017|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, soccer, Tactics|2 Comments

A nice provocative question to start off your week. But one of those that whilst it felt to me as provocative when I wrote the headline first thing this morning, the more and more I re-read and think about it, the more it feels obvious. Arsenal most certainly do have a development problem. That kind [...]

Alexis out this summer (Pep’ll be happy)

Apparently it's not just Arsenal who are hit with the injury curse of the international break. Yesterday Sadio Mane was hit with the confirmation that he'll be out for six weeks for Liverpool. Devastating news for Liverpool. Although six weeks leaves him handily placed to return in mid December and have a couple of games [...]

Arsenal: football’s new joke

There's little over 36 hours from the time of me writing this until the slamming shut of the summer transfer window and yesterday felt like there was more happening on a single day since the 'The Great Arsenal Trolley Dash' of 2011. That was sparked by a failure of epic proportions, but yesterday's movements were [...]

Arsenal fires breaking out everywhere

Where does one even start? Do you start at the breaking news that Arsenal seem to have relented on their stance of keeping the Ox by supposedly accepting a bid from Chelski for his services? Do you start by talking about how, if true, the decision to play him on Sunday seems even more maddening [...]

Arsenal: the tail wagging the rabies inflicted dog

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's a saturday in which we know our fate with regards to the Europa League, so it's trips to Red Star Belgrade and BATE Borisov, as well as Cologne. The final of those teams is one that I myself and particularly excited about, as I have family in Cologne and so will [...]

Arsenal: Hope of victory but there is no harmony

I thought about blogging yesterday but given Arsène was doing his presser at 8.45am, I thought I'd hold off until today before I compiled some thoughts, so here I am trying to make sense of what he had to say when sitting in front of the assembled media. Firstly, having read and watched a lot [...]

Arsène’s joking. Or bluffing. Or lost it.

Arsène Wenger must be a man with a sense of humour. It's the only real reason I can think of as to why he thinks this summer has been a good one so far, following an interview in some random Swedish media outlet. He's been quoted as saying that he is very pleased with our [...]

Baffling selection decisions =Arsenal Groundhog Day at Stoke

So we're two games in to the new season and already the hope and sporations of a new season appear to be in the sh*thouse, after a performance that seemed vintage Arsenal 2011 - 2016. Once again it was Stoke, once again we fell apart defensively, once again there are questions about the manager's decisions, [...]

Can Arsenal do it on a balmy August evening in Stoke on a Saturday?

By |2017-08-19T07:58:47+01:00August 19th, 2017|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, History, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Match day two for The Arsenal and it's that usually most feared of trips to Stoke that we have to intend with later on this evening. I think I speak for everyone when I say that this is one of those games that you just don't look forward to. I think it's because there's always [...]
