Can Arsenal benefit from fatigue ‘marginal gains’ in the next couple of matches?

Eugh, this is becoming intolerable now, this absence of football. I don't know why, but it feels even worse than an international break period. And there was even football on last weekend, which was supposed to at least keep me preoccupied until The Arsenal roll back in to town, but alas it has made things [...]

Arsenal’s attacking issues exposed again – we all need a reset

At halftime of yesterday's game I stood in the concourse of the North Bank blowing warm air on to my hands. I was cold, but what I'd seen in terms of the way Arsenal had approached the game and outplayed Liverpool had warmed my heart. Arteta had made a few changes to mix things up [...]

Rebuilding momentum: Arsenal need a reaction against Liverpool

It's FA Cup match day for The Arsenal and it's a home tie for us, as we bid to make it 15 times as FA Cup winners, a competition in which we are very familiar with and have won more than any other team in history. I don't know why, but whilst I do have [...]

Any more magic left in the FA Cup? Any more left backs left at Arsenal?

Happy FA Cup third round Saturday folks. It's a shame really, because the third round weekend used to be one of the more fun weekends. You used to get yourself a home or away tie against another team you usually don't play against, there would be tonnes of football on all the time (well, compared [...]

The importance of this weekend’s FA Cup game is growing for The Arsenal

With Arsenal having essentially a week to, as Declan Rice put it, 'reset' ahead of their next game, I am wondering what the mood will be like after back-to-back defeats. Will the players feel as down as we all were after those results? How well can they compartmentalise them and give a reaction? How exactly [...]

By Christmas Day, Arsenal will know…

Morning all, hope we're all good? It's back down to normality for me today following just under three week's on the other side of the world on holiday in New Zealand and although I've been quiet on here and quite quiet on social media, I've managed to watch almost all of Arsenal's football, as well [...]

Mesut Ozil – focusing on the positives of his Arsenal legacy

I was going to talk about some of the players who are on international duty, how I am praying for their safe return, having a little look at how far they are travelling over the next few days and then working out who I thought might be the one we need to keep a closest [...]

A defeat Arsenal are oddly Ok with?

Tis' an odd feeling indeed to view an FA Cup defeat with so little despair, but as I write this morning I feel oddly fine about the fact that we went out by an odd goal to Manchester City at the Etihad last night. What is also odd, however, is that looking at my Twitter [...]

Approaching Man City with calmness – win-win for Arsenal tonight?

Matchday it is and I have to tell you, rather than the usual trepidation I feel ahead of a massive game, I am more excited for this one. Honestly, I really am! I think it is because - as I've said all week - this is priority number three on our list and regardless of [...]

A midfield move ahead of Monday for Arsenal?

Morning morning Gooners, hope you’re all feeling fan-dabby-dozy on this here Thursday morn? Todays blog is coming to you from inside a BA aircraft, as we take a wee short trip up to Northumberland for The Management’s family birthday dinner on Saturday night. Annoyingly, it means that I can’t make my way up to the [...]
