Some days writing about The Arsenal feels like a proper chore. I've been - broadly speaking - writing about Arsenal for 13 years and so it has become habitual, which means I really do have to drag my carcass to the laptop and at this time of the year with over-indulgence a daily occurrence, it [...]

It’s match day and a Boxing Day one in which Arsenal face a struggling Norwich side who currently sit bottom of the league having picked up two wins and four draws all season. They have found it struggling even since Dean Smith took over and even have a fair few injury and COVID problems today, [...]

Arteta’s balancing act for Christmas

So it seems we are now playing the waiting game when it comes to our Boxing Day fixture. Two games were called off yesterday, including Wolves’ match against Leeds and that means Wolves will have had a full nine days rest between their 0-0 draw against Chelski on 19th and when they play us. Hardly [...]

Tomiyasu the new Monreal?

We got to hear from our newbie  yesterday, with the club dropping a fresh new video of Tomiyasu talking at London Colney to the chap that usually does the Arsenal Media videos and I have to say I was impressed. His English was excellent for somebody who has been in Japan, Belgium and then Italy [...]

Arsenal up and running with green shoots against Norwich

Winning football matches is hella fun. I like it. I like it indeed. And although at the time I felt moments of frustration, this was very much one of those days in which I look back at the game and realise that actually Arsenal played quite well. In fact you'd say the 1-0 scoreline probably [...]

Arsenal’s green shoots need to start today against Norwich

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Arteta must balance player fitness with results

By |2021-09-09T07:53:16+01:00September 9th, 2021|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

More bloody internationals?? I wasn't expecting this! Yet here we are, having had to endure yet another round of them crammed in, with players being away from their clubs even longer and probably only reporting for training tomorrow ahead of the weekend's action. Still, it could be worse, because we could have a team full [...]

How can Arsenal get close to this ‘New Top Four’?

Morning y’all, hope y’all are fine and dandy and living your best lives on this Tuesday morn? It was over a week of sun in the south of Portugal for me and although I had access to my computer and the internet, I’ll be completely honest with you, I just couldn’t be bothered with it [...]
