Someone’s got to step up

Perhaps a provocative headline written this morning, but no less a relevant one, as we find out soon (possibly today) the extent of Theo and The Ox's injuries, which means Arsène has to delve a little deeper in to his squad than I'm sure he'd prefer. Arsène has definitely rotated this season more than we [...]

Win your place back on the pitch, not in the papers

With a host of players currently on international duty, it's a pretty quiet time, if truth be told, so we're left with some comments from the players whilst on international duty, usually about their national team. Like Nacho, for example, who has spoken of the physicality of the English Premier League and how that has [...]

Defending the club becomes little more challenging after Welbeck news

I feel like I've been a mellow Gooner this summer. Whilst others around me have wavered, have shown a much more vocal level of irritation with the club's policy, I've maintained my stance that I think the squad is balanced with enough quality players and that although I'd like to see a couple of players [...]

We'll get victory through harmony – the players believe it

Stability is a place called Arsenal these days. With the announcement that Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla have both renewed their contracts with a four and three-year deal respectively, we have seen two of the recently unanswered questions be unequivocably dealt with by the club. In terms of keeping the continuity of the squad together, only the inking of [...]

Naming the trophy properly; that green grass turns yellow for van Persie

Before the weekend is upon us, the club will be on their way to Asia for the appropriately named 'Asia Trophy', in which they'll play a Singapore Select XI to decide who should have the honour of facing off against one of Everton or Stoke. I heard that they tried to call the Trophy the 'Non-England based, late at [...]

Alexis' success good for us?

Alexis Sanchez will be a happy boy today, after chipping the winning penalty to see Chile win the Copa America, so after a season of somewhat success at Arsenal just gone (and I say 'somewhat' not because of his personal success, or the teams, but I get the feeling the squad are all happy with [...]

Arsenal's PR offensive is still good for the fans; Dennis' legacy remembered

It'd be nice to be able to talk up the fact that Ivan said yesterday in a fans Q & A that we're going to sign Player x, Player Y is in the bag and Player Z was just waiting behind a pop-up banner to appear like a Sol Campbell from nowhere, but the reality [...]

Two stumbling blocks in Cech deal; hold the press: new kit is red and white

Two major talking points from yesterday included the unveiling of the new kit, as well as the noise about Cech hotting up even further, with his coach Christophe Lollichon (what a name that is, eh?) saying that Petr loves Arsenal's philosophy and he is settled in London. Let's start with the new kit though, which [...]

Exploit the width against Hull's formation

Today the good lord Bergkamp could see fit to bless upon us the day of St Totteringham, in which we celebrate the mathematical certainty that Arsenal will finish above the other team in North London in the Premier League. Ideally a draw yesterday coupled with an Arsenal win would have made this weekend just about as good [...]

Permutations, as St Totteringham's draws ever nearer

So it appears that it's not just football in which there are some 'boring boring' tactics used, as Floyd Mayweather decided that yesterday he'd rather celebrate the equivalent of a 0-0 to beat Manny Pacquiao by winning on points in what I am reading from people on social media, was more of a snugglefest from the American. I'm [...]
