How desperate are Arsena to win the Europa League?

This is it then. A whole season distilled down to one football match in which the success or failure will be viewed. All through the prism of a European Cup final. I've seen one in my lifetime, witnessed three heartbreaking ones, so I'm very aware of our record in Europe and very aware that this [...]

Playing Özil could be the difference; the wing backs are vital against Chelsea today

Happy Saturday folks. It's match day which is always a lovely old distraction and today, after what feels like a long week of turmoil and rumour, we get some actual football to sink our teeth in to. Chelski Cole to our gaff and it's weird because although it's essentially a season definer for The Arsenal, [...]

High pres versus high press: Chelsea v Arsenal preview

Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

The new League Cup approach – will it work tonight?

I find tonights League Cup encounter with Chelski an intriguing one. A competition that Arsène has historically been such an advocate of blooding young players in, even to the extent of getting to a final and prioritising development over giving the club the best possibility of a trophy, has this season seen a change of [...]

Chelsea will target our left and hit on the break

I can't say that I'm particularly confident about tonight. An Arsenal team that looks like its struggling for form and confidence at time, with the added pressure of that most usual of things - a long old injury list - up against an efficient Chelski team who have been grinding out victories and have been [...]

Boring boring Arsenal

I don't even know where to begin this morning. In fact, I almost don't want to begin, because after what I witnessed yesterday the malaise I have over the football club I love and support has almost completely enveloped me. I'm even at the stage where I've thought to myself that whilst the title was [...]

Coquelin's importance and ticket supply/demand vs PR

It's Thursday, the countdown to the top of the table clash between us and Chelski is now rolling in to full-on 'countdown', the players are starting to trickle out little tit-bits of information and Arsène will no doubt give us an injury update later on today before addressing the press tomorrow (unless his pressed is [...]
