Speculating on why Tielemans hasn’t moved yet

Welcome to Wednesday people. How we all getting on? In the UK we've got the August bank holiday looming on the horizon this weekend and that is something to be very happy about, but so is the end of the transfer window, if I'm completely honest, because that'll happen next week and we'll know exactly [...]

Arsenal won’t get six wins from eight – that is what is required now

Morning folks - hope you're all well? Haven't been behind my computer since Wednesday last week, as I was holidaying in Rome and eating way too much pasta and pizza to think about penning thoughts whilst away on my travels, but am back behind my laptop today for a first day back at work and [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal giving me a touch of the ‘what ifs’ and I like it

Being a football fan is a funny old game and that game goes from highs to lows, from joy to worry, relatively quickly. Take the Scum from the Lane. They may have won f**k all, but the fact that they're about to sign Antonio Conte as their manager has a few Arsenal fans slightly concerned, [...]

Arteta’s future: I’m becoming a Doubting Thomas

Bit of a provocative title for today's blog, I know, but let me just explain myself a little with my thinking here. Also, what with it being an Easter weekend, I thought I'd go for a variation on a theme... Yesterday after I'd written my usual match review on what transpired in the limp 3-0 [...]

The fear of the North London Derby

Here we are. The worst day in our football calendar in my opinion: North London Derrby Day at home. I hate it. There's just so much always riding on this one, the nerves are heightened and - despite there being no fans in the stadium and therefore home advantage is pretty much negated - it [...]

Make better attacking decisions against Leeds today, Arsenal

I don't know whether or not it is because I have the rest of my Sunday ahead of me and therefore plenty of other things to occupy me ahead of the game at 4.30pm later this afternoon, or that I have a stinking hangover and therefore my thought priorities are being monopolised by finding a [...]

Southampton at home: win or bust for Unai Emery?

I'm not sure if it actually will result in his permanent removal from the managerial position at Arsenal if the team doesn't win today, but by jove, I think it should. We've lost to Sheffield United and Leicester, drawn at home to Wolves and Crystal Palace and today we play a team as out of [...]

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

Bournemouth preview: this will be a grind

Morning folks - everyone feeling good? Everyone excited for another match day? Or, are you like me, which is that every time a match day comes around you get that dragging sensation in your stomach? It's the one where you can't quite work out whether you feel a bit sick, or you're hungry, or you [...]
