Morning all, hope we're all feeling fine and dandy? Having not watched the game last night, it is difficult for me to be too details-orientated on both individual and team performances, but Arsenal's continued good pre season form carried on and we beat what sounds like a pretty lacklustre Everton team with goals from the [...]

Fear the familiar sound of ‘we must learn’ from Arsenal

I don't know whether it was said in the immediate aftermath of the game against Everton on Monday, but I only read those Martin Odegaard quotes yesterday afternoon, in which he admitted that Arsenal have a mindset problem. He said something along the lines of being 'afraid to lose the win' or something equally as [...]

What ‘process’ are we trusting again, Arsenal?

Last night's shambolic Arsenal performance was a massive alarm bell for me. It was an appalling indictment of all the things Arteta and his Arsenal team have got wrong and although we went through a good run of form before the last international break, that is looking more and more like an outlier in the [...]

Is a youthful and high intensity attack the way forward tonight?

Tottenahm, West Ham and Man United all won this weekend, which brings in to focus exactly what is needed from Mikel Arteta's side tonight as we face an Everton team who have had some injuries, some poor run of form, but haven't lost at home to us in four years. Last season we lost 2-1 [...]

The Arsenal striker situation needs addressing

Well Chelski did us no favours yesterday, did they? Just when you are thinking that they could actually be useful for a change and beat the Hammers, they end up going down to a late goal. Frustrating. What it means for us is that tomorrow is now essentially a must win. The defeat at Old [...]

The Arsenal worrier and his ‘worry wall’

Antonio Conte to the Scum, Unai Emery to the new Geordie Oil Whores, what is happening right now? What weird twilight zone have we fallen in to that sees this collective of randomness occur? In fairness Conte has hedged his bets with an 18-month contract and you have to hope that is fails dismally and [...]

Momentum is winning the home games for The Arsenal

By |2021-10-24T09:02:12+01:00October 24th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|2 Comments

Football is a mental ol' sport sometimes, eh? Like watching a team in Everton who could have gone up to fourth with a home win against what looked like a hapless Watford last weekend, get battered in ten minutes to lose 5-2 at home. Or like how after three games of the season we were [...]

Arsenal fans excel against KSE, Arsenal players decline against Everton

I will get to the football that was played last night, eventually (and unfortunately), but first of all there should be only one place to start today's Arsenal-related musings and that is with the protest yesterday. Estimates between 2,000 to 3,000 fans were there outside the ground yesterday and in bringing together that many people [...]

The fight for the soul of Arsenal isn’t over

It feels a little bit odd to be talking or even thinking about ACTUAL football after the last few days that we've had, but ACTUAL football there is on the horizon, with a game tomorrow night against Everton at The Emirates. And a game in which there will be fans there. Not in the stadium [...]

Arsenal and Arteta in free fall with defeat to Everton

I really believed yesterday's game was going to be the change in fortunes. I thought we'd get a reaction from the players and that we'd come away from Goodison Park from it. I had a funny feeling about the game and I tried my best to exude the positive vibes throughout the day in some [...]
