Morning folks, happy Friday and all that jazz. How are we all doing? I know this isn't a Liverpool blog, but I'm going to start off with the Caicedo news that  Ornstein dropped in the early hours of this morning. I mean, honestly, doesn't that guy sleep? What does he do, spend a few hours [...]

A draw at Anfield – take that

Todays ramblings from me will be a slightly different take on the 2-2 draw at Liverpool yesterday. That’s because I’m viewing it through the prism of not having watched the game, as I was with The Management’s family having an Easter dinner and so I physically couldn’t watch the game. But I did check in [...]

Arsenal must stop the long Liverpool diagonals

When I woke up yesterday morning I thought to myself: “don’t bother about City; they smash Southampton (who are terrible), it’ll be all on us for tomorrow, the media narrative will be set, just prepare for it”. But as much as you can tell yourself that, as much as you know what will happen, there [...]

Arteta plays a straight bat pre Liverpool

Tricky Micky Arteta had his press conference yesterday and, as expected, didn’t really give away much in terms of team news. I suppose the best news is that we have no fresh injuries from last weekend. That is good enough for me because at this stage of the season the last thing we want to [...]

What is it about the North West for The Arsenal?

Happy Good Friday to you and yours. Hope you have nice things planned with the family. I'm spending the day doing jobs before sauntering over to the Mother-in-Laws so I can vegetate for a few days and just spend my time relaxing. Except I won't really ever 'relax' properly, because of what looms on the [...]

Making a case for the increasingly likely start of Rob Holding

I didn't bother to watch the Chelsea versus Liverpool game. I already knew how the script would play out; Liverpool looking ropey, Chelsea not able to finish their dinner, a game in which Football365 has already labelled 'El Sh*tico' would be a waste of an evening. Of course I still wanted to know how the game [...]

An Arsenal fan already nervous ahead of next weekend…

Happy Monday party people - how we all doing? Feeling chipper after another win? Or are you like me and already becoming a bit fraught with the idea of going to Anfield to play the manifestation of a bi-polar football team that is Liverpool Football Club? This one coming up on the radar is one [...]

Arsenal do their job against Leeds – nine to go

Ahh man am I hungover. I got to Highbury & Islington tube station at around 12.35 - about an hour earlier than I normally do - so I could watch the City versus Liverpool game. What a waste of time that was. I hope the Scousers are that rubbish when they play us, although I [...]

Saliba’s injury and why we should all be worried about Holding long term

By |2023-03-31T07:55:08+01:00March 31st, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence, injuries, Mikel Arteta, premier league|2 Comments

I'm probably going to spend the vast bulk of today's ramblings talking about how worried I am with regards to William Saliba's fitness concerns, so before I do that, I'm taking a moment to remember the wonderful player that was David Rocastle. He sadly died 22 years ago today and whilst he didn't end his [...]
