Glorious sunshine, glorious football, glorious Gabriel Jesus dispatches Leicester

Well now, I tell you what, if you could pick out a perfect Saturday to have as an Arsenal fan, you couldn't have done much better than what we were treated to yesterday in the heat of the August sun at the Emirates yesterday. The weather was sublime, the crowd were upbeat and excitable with [...]

Fearing the Leicester counter “smash and grab”

By |2022-03-13T09:48:34+00:00March 13th, 2022|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|2 Comments

I'm super nervous about today, lads and lasses, super nervous indeed. I think the reason why is because I fear what Leicester can do to us on the counter attack. They feel to me like a team absolutely geared up to smash and grab us and whilst their defence is nowhere near as resolute as [...]

FInally – a European advantage over an upcoming opponent for Arsenal?

By |2022-03-10T08:44:42+00:00March 10th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, premier league|0 Comments

Earlier in the season I wrote a post about no European football, then lamented how when we were in the competition, we always seemed to suffer by playing opponents fresher in the league than us. And we have heard managers of Arsenal over the years talk about how the midweek game had the players a [...]

A tough ask for Arsenal at Leicester today

I'd take a draw today. There, I said it. I've set my stall out for today's blog early on and I'll be completely frank with you, I fear this game now that we are on the eve of it. We've scored one goal away all season, which was in the 1-0 win over Burnley. We've [...]

Vardy’s already put Arsenal one down before we’ve started

Before I talk about the game Arsenal are playing today, can I just take this opportunity once again to bemoan the absolute travesty that is the state of refereeing in the Premier League right now. Yesterday's game between West Brom and Brighton involved an incident in which a referee - Lee Mason - decided to [...]

Arsenal are a bit pants in the final third

Ahh man. Where to even start after a disappointing defeat like yesterday? Fair play to Leicester. They did a proper smash and grab raid on us at home, but it's hard not to look at that game and think that the defeat we were dealt last night was entirely of our own making. That game [...]

Partey holding the midfield to unlock chance creation against Leicester?

Morning folks and happy match day. Well, it will be if we beat Leicester City tonight. If Jamie Vardy does what he always seems to do when we play them however, then it could be a very ‘unhappy’ match day. I have the nerves about this one tonight. Leicester maybe missing a few of their [...]

Arteta talks up Gabriel and Partey as the spine develops

By |2020-10-24T08:48:18+01:00October 24th, 2020|Arsenal, Defence, Europa League, Mikel Arteta, premier league|1 Comment

Morning folks and happy Saturday to you and yours. We've got a little bit of waiting to be done until we play again on Sunday night in a ridiculous pay-per-view game against Leicester but with both teams playing on Thursday evening this was always going to be a Sunday game and so it means Saturday's [...]

Auba, Guendouzi and Leicester – Monday musings

By |2020-07-06T09:00:13+01:00July 6th, 2020|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Arsenal Transfers, contracts, Mikel Arteta, premier league, press conference, Transfers|0 Comments

Happy Monday peeps. Yesterday I had a stinking hangover, so didn’t compile any thoughts on the Wolves result, but I gotta tell ya I was mighty impressed I have to say. It was the first ‘statement victory’ that we have had under Arteta and no wonder he had such a beaming smile afterwards. I know [...]

Leicester: sh*t or bust for Arsenal’s Champions League hopes

By |2019-04-28T09:37:14+01:00April 28th, 2019|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Champions League, Match Preview, premier league, Tactics|1 Comment

Another away trip against a team with nothing to play for and sadly I have very little confidence that we will come out of this one with any points. Wolves aren't fighting for anything, Palace weren't fighting for anything, yet both put three past us and with Leicester sure to play us on the counter [...]
