‘Routine victory’ not in Arsenal vocab

By |2021-03-12T07:58:12+00:00March 12th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta|1 Comment

My my my. We really are something, aren't we, eh? Clock ticking down, time running out, 11 minutes plus stoppage time to turn what would have been a disappointing draw away to Olympiakos in Athens and up steps forward two unlikely goalscorers with two super goals to put us in control of this two-legged tie. [...]

Arsenal must force chance creation tonight against Rapid Vienna

Guten morgen folks and welcome to Europa League matchday. Right, plenty to be talking about, so let's get straight to it, starting briefly with Mesut Ozil and his statement I'm starting with this because if I'm honest it has been done to death and I don't really want to dwell too much on it. He [...]

Gabriel in and has a support network of Brazilians with him

So we have ourselves another signing of the summer and, whilst it was the world’s worst kept secret that Gabriel Magalhaes was an Arsenal player, seeing him unveiled by fellow Brazilians David Luiz and Willian was still a fantastic way to bring the young defender in officially. There are plenty of glossy videos that announce [...]

The clubs’ belief in Arteta makes the future exciting

Another day, another ‘step closer’ in the Gabriel Magalhaes saga, which appears to be reaching its natural conclusion. I mean, when Sky Sports are flashing the ol’ yellow ‘breaking’ banner on their website, you know they’ve been ripped off to it essentially being done. So the hope is we get some news today at some [...]

Freddie’s off and is Gabriel finally in?

Another day, another exit, and once again sadly it’s not from the playing staff (I say ‘sadly’ because we all know we need to trim that squad rather sharpish) but from the back room. Freddie ‘we love you’ Ljungberg leaves the club to pursue his management career. I think I speak for every Arsenal fan [...]

Is Gabriel on the Arteta boat or not?

Morning all and welcome to Saturday. It’s the last Saturday before all the football starts up again next weekend and that to me is bloody weird. I’m used to a summer in which you go through the stages of sadness that football isn’t on and end up utterly bereft before eventually it comes back and [...]

Gabriel and Auba; it ain’t over until it’s over

Yo peeps. Nearly there. Slowly trotting towards the weekend and with it, by all accounts, a deal for a young Brazilian appears to be drawing to a close for £22million as Gabriel Magalhaes is on the verge of joining us apparently. I've seen it a few times on Twitter and a couple of people I [...]

Flexible formations for Arsenal ahead of ‘set systems’

Morning folks and welcome to another midweek of this weird pre-season we find ourselves in. What's weird about it is that even though the FA Cup is still relatively fresh in the minds of most of us (despite Arsenal's attempts to pour cold water on it through signings, redundancies, sackings at the top, etc), we [...]

Arsenal’s defenisve stockpiling means we need other teams to move first

It's all feeling a bit quiet this morning. Well, I say quiet, but that is in the context of The Arsenal and what's happened in the last year or so. If it's not quick-fire football matches, or managers being given the boot, or changes in back room exec level, or contracts, or signings, or COVID-19, [...]

Willian rumbles to a conclusion, whilst Magalhaes arrival and Guendouzi exit start to bubble…

Still drinking it in folks, still drinking it in... The sun is shining a little more brightly, we've had a good four days since the cup win, yet there is still so much delicious content to feast on everywhere. Other bloggers, podcasters, the mainstream media. Heck, I even watched a video of some gobby Spurs [...]
