And so the Champions League run for The Arsenal comes to an end. Not with a bang, but sadly with a bit of a whimper, as Bayern saw out a tense affair in Munich by beating us 1-0 with that second half headed goal by Kimmich. It was a momentary lapse of concentration from our [...]

Season-defining game for Arsenal against Bayern tonight?

It's the big one today and potentially a season-defining one, although I really wish that it wasn't, because I do worry what might happen if we go out tonight. That's a very real possibility, because: We do not have an amazing pedigree in Europe. We have a pretty pants record against Bayern. We've just come [...]

Arsenal PTSD

I know it's a bit of a provocative title, but sometimes needs must, boys and girls, because it just feels like where I'm at right now. It's now two days since we lost to Villa and that sobering and numbing feeling from that defeat is still gnawing away me. This wasn't where we were supposed [...]

Arsenal’s togetherness and fixture play out is looking good

Happy Thursday folks. Hope you're all recovered from the emosh of Tuesday night's Champions League encounter? One thing that I didn't touch on yesterday when I was still pretty raging, was how the tie is so finely balanced, so I thought I'd jot down some initial thoughts on that now. I do think the impact of [...]

Arsenal must remain patient and resolute – this is still Bayern

Here we are boys and girls. The big one tonight. It's Bayern Munich at the Emirates and as soon as the draw was made a few weeks back, we all collectively took an intake of breath as Arsenal fans, because we all know the history of playing them in this competition. It ain't great. 12 [...]

Prepping for Bayern whilst admiring the Premier League table

Morning folks and happy Monday to you and yours. We got an unexpected bit of good news yesterday, didn't we, eh? Honestly when I saw Liverpool go one up in the first half against an injury-hit and out of form Man United, I was tempted to just turn the TV off and go and do [...]

It had to be Bayern and Kane, didn’t it?

It just had to be bloody Bayern Munich, didn't it, eh? On Thursday I wrote about my preference about who I'd like to see us play in the quarter-final and on that list Bayern finished fifth out of eight, so it almost felt inevitable that we were going to get one of the toughest opponents [...]

Who cares about who Arsenal get in the Champions League quarter final? Me, a little bit…

So last night we found out all about who our opponents could potentially be, as the last of the Champions League round of 16 games were played and it was Atleti and Dortmund who advanced to the quarter finals, which means we'll get one of: Atlético de Madrid Barcelona Bayern München Borussia Dortmund Manchester City [...]

Cheeky little bidding war for Xhaka, perhaps?

When it comes to selling players, there's one thing everyone loves: A BIDDING WAR! So waking up this morning to noises that Bayern - and maybe even Dortmund - have sat up and taken a bit of notice of the fact that Granit Xhaka is available, is music to mine ears, that's for sure. I'm [...]

How perfect do Arsenal need to be in the next six weeks?

I'm going to be honest with you, seeing the Financially Doped Sky Blues (FDSB) of Manchester blitz their way through Bayern Munich last night has me somewhat concerned that they are hitting a level of form that everyone expecting from the start of this season. It seems it doesn't matter whether they are playing the [...]
