Arsenal get by against PSV in the most rubbery of dead rubbers

By |2023-12-13T08:17:43+00:00December 13th, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Match Review, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Not really sure where to go with today's post match blog musings, to be honest with you, because the situation we - thankfully - put ourselves in by winning all but one of our other Champions league games, meant that yesterday night's dead rubber was the most dead rubbery of all that you're going to [...]

Arsenal need to beware the aerials against Sevilla

I think tonight might be a little trickier than some people might think. Going away to Sevilla and getting the result was good, but for some it might add a false sense of security on the outcome of tonight's match, particularly given our injury problems as it stands. No Timber, no Partey, no Smith Rowe, [...]

Arsenal and Eddie engage in a Sheffield mauling

“You’ll batter us today” was the quote I heard as I ordered my first pint yesterday. A Sheffield United fan had travelled down from Yorkshire with his mates and they had come for a day out rather than any expectation of an upset. Naturally my response was measured; a few pleasantries about never knowing and [...]

Clean bill of health for Arsenal’s international stars?

Morning you lovely lot. Happy Wednesday from a tired Gooner hurtling his way towards central London on the Metropolitan Line for an all day strategy session. Could life get any more exciting, eh? Still, at least I'm not in Harry Maguire's position, because he can't get anything right, eh? I mean don't get me wrong, [...]

Praying for safe return of Arsenal players from internationals

By |2023-09-08T09:29:34+01:00September 8th, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, Internationals, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

Hello again, fellow Gooners, welcome to Friday! Normally I'd be talking about how I'm excited for the football this weekend, but as we both know that is not the case, with us instead crossing everything that we get our players returning in one piece and not just the shattered remains of players handed back to [...]

Focus and control needed for Arsenal against transitional Man United

Had a bit of a heavy one in Richmond yesterday evening for a friends birthday party, so today’s ramblings will probably be more incoherent than usual, but let’s give it a go at previewing today’s game at the Emirates against United, shall we? Firstly, some form of prediction. I think we’ll get a draw today. [...]

Preparing oneself for the inevitable Leno ‘game of his life’ – Arsenal v Fulham

By |2023-08-26T07:29:08+01:00August 26th, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

It's match day in North London today! And that brings with it equal measures of excitement and trepidation. Always has, always will, but come 3pm Arteta and his players need to be ready to step up and do the business against a Fulham team smarting from a home 3-0 defeat last weekend against Brentford, as [...]

Arsenal squeeze past Palace with little help from referees as usual

You know football is back when you look at the heart rate monitor and see that because of your elevated beats per minute, you've been fat burning on a Monday night from about 9pm onwards, despite sitting on your sofa. Specifically, you know you're an Arsenal fan who knows that football is back because as [...]

A tough on in South London for The Arsenal tonight

It's match day number two for us this evening as the footballing authorities saw fit to turn this game against Palace to a Monday night one under the lights for something like the fourth or fifth time in a row I think (I haven't bothered to check that). That's because they want an upset and [...]

Do Arsenal really need another striker?

There's not many of you who will probably know this, but on my Dad's side of the family there is an army of West Ham fans, with my Dad having been brought up in Stratford and his family all dating back to Whitechapel and the surrounding areas of East London. My brother chose to support [...]
