Frustration felt as Arsenal slip up against Tottenham

As I said on last night's Same Old Arsenal podcast, the one word that keeps ringing through my head both yesterday and this morning: Frustration. I'm frustrated at the performance. I'm frustrated at the injuries. I'm frustrated at the silly concession of our goals. I'm frustrated at the media narrative about how awesome this Postecoglou [...]

North London Derby day – the unknown quantity in Ange’s Tottenham

Here we are. The second worst fixture of the football calendar, from my perspective, with the away North London Derby easily being the worst. Despite the fact we have a good record at home, despite the fact some of my best memories are from NLD's of years gone by, I still hate the tension ahead [...]

The long wait has ended – will Arsenal respond in the Champions League

We’ve waited for this match day for a long time, haven’t we, eh? Arsenal back in the Champions League. It’s a place that for so many years we took for granted and I seem to recall all those years ago (probably around this time seven years ago) thinking (and maybe writing but I can't be [...]

Morning peeps. Happy Saturday to you and yours. Hope you guys are all good. It's going to be a scorcher this weekend and so after today's brain dump I'll be heading out to the garden to fire up the paddling pool I reckon! Come 2pm there will be a beached whale of a Suburban Gooner [...]

A good Champions League draw and decent Premier League matches after each one

Happy Friday peeps! Today is press conference day and so Mikel will be asked about the Champions League games, the game ahead against United, maybe even what he thinks about Brentford in the League Cup (although, maybe not ;-) ). There's also the small matter of the transfer window closing and I wonder if Mikel [...]

Preparing oneself for the inevitable Leno ‘game of his life’ – Arsenal v Fulham

By |2023-08-26T07:29:08+01:00August 26th, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

It's match day in North London today! And that brings with it equal measures of excitement and trepidation. Always has, always will, but come 3pm Arteta and his players need to be ready to step up and do the business against a Fulham team smarting from a home 3-0 defeat last weekend against Brentford, as [...]

Arsenal need to solve the ‘bad seller’ look

Morning all, hope we're all ok on this Thursday in August? It was good getting the business done earlier, eh? I remember too many times getting to the last week of the window thinking "nope, we're still too short, they HACE to do something soon". Of course quite often it would be leaving it until [...]

Arsenal squeeze past Palace with little help from referees as usual

You know football is back when you look at the heart rate monitor and see that because of your elevated beats per minute, you've been fat burning on a Monday night from about 9pm onwards, despite sitting on your sofa. Specifically, you know you're an Arsenal fan who knows that football is back because as [...]

A tough on in South London for The Arsenal tonight

It's match day number two for us this evening as the footballing authorities saw fit to turn this game against Palace to a Monday night one under the lights for something like the fourth or fifth time in a row I think (I haven't bothered to check that). That's because they want an upset and [...]
