A midfield of consistency at The Arsenal

Yesterday I went through the defence, so today I thought I'd do some musing over our midfield. Yesterday I also gave an honourable mention to Declan Rice, because I do truly believe that the trio of Gabriel, Saliba and Rice are the main reason as to why we were so miserly in conceding goals, but [...]

We're halfway through the week, halfway to our next cup final and as awesome as it's been drinking in all of the salty Scum tears, the focus absolutely has to switch to the challenge of Bournemouth, who will not be an easy opponent on Saturday lunchtime. One person I will be hoping that is in [...]

Positive news on returning players for Arteta – some rotation against Burnley?

Matchday it is and it's a chance to keep pace with Liverpool and City. City play in the evening, Liverpool play at lunchtime and given the two opponents they have, I'm not expecting us to have anything beneficial come out of their two games, so we simply must do the business against Burnley in the [...]

Some questions in the absence of Kai tomorrow

Yesterday I drove up to see the Management's family for our 'part two' of Christmas and as we travelled up I decided to flick on the radio to have a listen to the Newcastle v Forest game. I do love the Christmas period because aside from Christmas Day, there is football on basically all the [...]

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 [...]

Bogey team Brighton provide a massive test for The Arsenal

Cor blimey I had a skin-full last night. Eurovision virtual party with the family and I decided the only way to get through it is to drink so much booze that walking upstairs to bed felt like a pilgrimage. **Makes noise like Sideshow Bob when he steps on all those rakes in The Simpsons** I [...]

Gutsy Arsenal keep the pressure on with Newcastle win

When this season is finished and we all start to assess how it has gone, there will be loads of really positive things to say about Mikel Arteta’s side. Sure, we’ll probably have some regrets like the Everton game away, or that we didn’t make more of the Southampton at home (and away too, probably) [...]

Jorginho and Trossard helping Arteta lean in to squad rotation more

Happy Monday to you lovely Gooners. How we all doing today? I see that the media love-in for Man United has started. They waxed lyrical throughout the League Cup final and then afterwards too, as United celebrated their first cup in six years. Apparently this is going to spearhead them to inevitable glory now. We [...]

Forensically searching for players in pictures at Arsenal

I said yesterday with a brash tone "they're sure to have a press conference today as I would imagine they'll be travelling up to Everton on Friday given the game is a 12.30pm kick off on Saturday". So of course there was no such presser, once again proving that a) I know absolutely nothing about [...]

Squad depth and mentality at Arsenal

Morning folks, how we all doing? Having a good one? I'm struggling to shift a bloody annoying sore throat and cough at the moment, which isn't ideal, but I guess it's the time of year n'that... It's also the time of the season where the dust has settled on the transfer window, the second half [...]
