Yesterday was not a fun day. Yesterday a big chunk of hope that we might end the wait for a league title crumbled away. Yes, we are just two points off Man City and yes, there are a few games left still to play, but we aren't up against any other team. We all know [...]

Morning folks and happy match day to you and yours. Let's hope it's an enjoyable one for all Gooners all over the world. But this match is far from a foregone conclusion. Aston Villa represent a very tough opponent and I have to say, whilst for the last couple of days I'vevbeen feeling good about [...]

Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend folks. Hope life is treating you all well. We had Arteta's presser yesterday and he seemed pretty fine and his usual self when talking about the team and player availability for Sunday, which is good. Gabriel apparent missed training since the Bayern game but Arteta didn't seem to [...]

Decent Premier League and FA Cup weekend, considering there was no Arsenal

By |2024-03-18T09:26:02+00:00March 18th, 2024|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Champions League, FA Cup, premier league|0 Comments

Not having The Arsenal on this weekend meant a jeopardy-free weekend in terms of how I was feeling when looking at both Premier League and FA Cup games, but despite that, there were still a few preferred outcomes that I was looking for. In the Premier League, for example, Villa and the Scum dropping points [...]

Profligate Arsenal come unstuck at Villa

That one was a tough one to take yesterday, because as Arteta put it after the game, we were the better team and should have put the ball in the back of the net. We knew what we would get last night. Under the lights, on TV, Villa playing well at home and currently on [...]

These are the games that could define Arsenal’s season – Villa away

I'd be telling you a big fat festive Christmas fib if I didn't admit to being anything other than nervous about today's game at Villa Park. I've been reading a few bits online, I've been taking in some Arsenal podcasts, plus reading a few Villa blogs too. They are cautiously optimistic. They know that it [...]

Arsenal and Arteta’s control – we’re getting used to it

Last night after I'd had my dinner I quickly checked my phone to see the Scum v West Ham score. It was about 20 minutes in and I saw that they had bagged one early so I put my phone down and tucked in to some festive TV. "I'm not watching the media love in of [...]

Is this season the hardest Premier League ever?

Given the games are coming thick and fast at the moment, no sooner had the euphoria of Tuesday's win settled down for me yesterday evening, I immediately started thinking about the challenge of Aston Villa ahead on Saturday. This was amplified when I saw that Villa were playing City at home in the evening and [...]

The Arsenal roller-coaster continues at Villa: What a week it’s been

Life comes at you fast. And football comes at you faster. Bear with me on this today - it might be a long ol' blog, because there's so much to unpick from yesterday and the last week in general. One week ago I was sat here tapping away at my computer, penning some thoughts about [...]

Unai’s back, fixtures are changed and Gabby J is nothing to worry about for The Arsenal

Morning folks, welcome to Tuesday and whilst it's not exactly Arsenal related, it appears as though Aston Villa are getting a little bit of an Arsenal connection as their next manager, as Unai Emery has been confirmed as their new appointment from Villareal. It's an interesting appointment and not one I would have expected and [...]
