Yesterday was not a fun day. Yesterday a big chunk of hope that we might end the wait for a league title crumbled away. Yes, we are just two points off Man City and yes, there are a few games left still to play, but we aren't up against any other team. We all know [...]

Prepping for Bayern whilst admiring the Premier League table

Morning folks and happy Monday to you and yours. We got an unexpected bit of good news yesterday, didn't we, eh? Honestly when I saw Liverpool go one up in the first half against an injury-hit and out of form Man United, I was tempted to just turn the TV off and go and do [...]

As expected – the stalemate that suits The Arsenal

As I and many others predicted in the build up to this match, there would be no basketball-style game, leading to goals galore. Instead, this was every bit the chess match, played between two teams who are stylistically even matched and two managers who follow similar footballing philosophies. There was the inevitable chiding online from [...]

Cagey chess match football: City v Arsenal preview

It’s the big one today and, as I suspected but didn’t say, the butterflies and nerves for this game against City later on are starting to kick in. Arsenal travel to Manchester trying to do something we haven’t managed to do in nine previous attempts in all competitions. You have to go back eight years [...]

Arteta is feeling the training ground buzz ahead of the Etihad trip

I never normally watch the opposition match press conference, but given the build up to this massive game tomorrow and given how significant it could impact both City and Arsenal's season, I thought I'd have a little sneak peak at pep's comments in his presser. Obviously I was also intrigued on how he delivered news [...]

Arsenal need to beat the final boss level

It's Good Friday, we've just finished off a bit of a preview pod on the Same Old Arsenal podcast (you can have a look here), we've got ourselves a press conference from Mikel Arteta coming up at some stage today and then he'll give us a low down on where the team is at and [...]

Patiently waiting and hoping for a clean Arsenal bill of health

So, we're done with this frigging pointless friendlies and, as suspected Gareth Southgate kept Declan Rice on the pitch for the full 96 minutes last night. I flicked on and awatched about 10 minutes of the first half as I was cooking to see Pickford have a howler, then I heard about Lewis Dunk's howler, [...]

Saliba slighted, Rice rejoicing – the internationals still rumble on…

Oh Didier....if you're gonna come for Big Bill Saliba, you better swing hard and true, because we Arsenal fans will have his back for sure! Of course I'm sure Deschamps couldn't give a monkeys about us and what we feel, but regardless of that, it does feel a little crass of him to make comments [...]

Latest international hurdle overcome for our Arsenal lads

So it looks like the second international hurdle has been overcome this week; it appears that Odegaard did 86 minutes and came off and I'm not seeing any news of any knocks, so that's all gravy. Sadly Haaland also played 75 minutes so noises of his supposed injury - whilst he also quashed himself in [...]
