Basel away: what’s the logic on squad selection?

When I unlocked my phone yesterday on the tube home, I hoped to read stories on the official site about "the strength of the squad" or how one or two players "have been unlucky not to play more football" so far this season. I didn't expect to read about how the squad travelling to Switzerland [...]

Magic Mesut masterminds Ludogorets beating

Well, I thought that turned out ok in the end last night, didn't it? Considering the opening circumstances... We all knew Arsène was going to rotate his squad yesterday, but unlike in years gone by when that has filled many of us with fear, I personally was quite happy that we were able to give [...]

Rotation or enforced changes? An opportunity for some Arsenal players against Ludogorets

Happy match day one and all. I hope you are all feeling fabulous and crossing your fingers in the hope that Arsenal secure safe passage to the next round of the Champions League through three points and results going out way? Yep, if PSG win tonight against Basel, as well as an Arsenal victory against [...]

Arsenal are not under the radar any more

I knew it wouldn't last you know. It simply couldn't. There was only so much time that could elapse before people started to realise. There was only so long that people would spend salivating and frothing at the mouth over the two Manchester clubs, before they started to pay attention to teams like ours. I [...]

Is Arsène doing it right with subs?

It's press conference day today and with Arsenal having dispatched Ludogorets with relative ease on Wednesday night, I suspect Arsène will be in buoyant mood and the press pack will probably go a little easier than they would normally, asking team news questions and wondering whether this team can go all the way this time.  [...]

Efficient Arsenal are fun to watch

We were well rubbish yesterday, weren't we? I mean, we played a team who were so overawed by the occasion, they tried to camouflage themselves with the pitch by wearing green. I can't believe we only scored six goals yesterday... What a result. Six goals, a hat trick for Mesut, a team that is positively [...]

I think rotation is key tonight, but does Arsène?

By |2017-05-19T20:08:04+01:00October 19th, 2016|Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, Champions League, Match Preview|0 Comments

This is my match day day that is sandwiched in between two match day days that I cannot take part. The first was Swansea at the weekend, the second is Middlesbrough on Saturday, so I feel like I'm appreciating going to tonight's game even more than I usually do.  It's Ludogorets in the Champions League [...]

Oracles speak, groups get grouped and Arsenaldom feels a little brighter

So, as with all Arsenal transfers, sh*t doesn't really get real until yer man David Ornstein gives out a little titbit of information via the medium of Twitter. I think it's something like stage four of a five stage process, to be honest with you, with the final stage just being the medical, confirm terms between [...]
