It's all got a little slow now in terms of goings on at The Arsenal, eh? I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, of course, but speaking as somebody who wakes up in the morning and thinks "I wonder what stuff has been happening, or will happen in the next 24 hours, should occupy my thoughts [...]

As Monday's go from an Arsenal fans perspective, we've had worse, haven't we? Five points clear at the top, a high performing team who have delivered us a concrete lead that will go in to the festive period, players who have stepped up from last season and new signings (as well as 'Like a New Signing' [...]

Villa at home: Arsenal must continue to the momentum

Morning folks and welcome to Match Day! It's the most wonderful time, of the week... But also it can be the most nail biting time of the week and what with us already losing some players to injury, the Arsenal  fanbase is going full Calculus to try to work out how we are going to [...]

Keep yer statistical models, because it’s that confidence of momentum that I want

Thursday has come around and we are knocking down the door of the weekend once again. Perhaps it's because my work has been so busy, but these weeks appear to be flying by, which is good considering the lack of football we've had to endure. I think I read somewhere that there won't be a [...]

Arsenal must maintain momentum against Leeds, but with the fringe players

Howdy peeps and welcome to what I like to call the "low risk match day". It's a game this evening at home to Leeds United in which Arsenal we hope will of course win, but with it being in the League Cup, the stakes don't feel as high, so as a result if we end [...]

Momentum is winning the home games for The Arsenal

Football is a mental ol' sport sometimes, eh? Like watching a team in Everton who could have gone up to fourth with a home win against what looked like a hapless Watford last weekend, get battered in ten minutes to lose 5-2 at home. Or like how after three games of the season we were [...]

Two steps forward – Don’t make it one back against West Brom, Arsenal

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Rotation a must, but a few goals and a win is also essential against Villa

Wolves' win yesterday against a pathetic and hapless Crystal Palace - already on the beach (and how the hell did they pick up two draws against us? Oh yeah, VAR...) and not fussed either way - means that the chances of Arsenal qualifying for Europe via the league are reliant on so many permutations going [...]

Fatigued Arsenal build momentum against Everton

A third win in a week is certainly nothing to be sniffed at and, with a sixth, seventh and eighth goal scored in eight days, then you can’t really be complaining too much after the season we’ve had. It felt like a weird old game though. What I mean by that is that when I [...]

Refreshed Arsenal need to lay down a marker against Newcastle – match preview

Happy matchday fellow Arsenal obsessive. Hope all is good with you? It's blowing a right ol' gail in London; certainly feels like the gods are angry and extracting their revenge. Perhaps that's why they've called this particular storm Dennis. Anyway, apparently it's not impacting the likelihood of the match being called off today apparently and [...]
