This time three years ago…

This time three years ago I had just woken up. The weather report said it was going to be a glorious day and the sun was starting to poke through the blackout blinds of my Velux windows in mine and the Management's bedroom. I'd gone to bed a little later than a usual school night [...]

Koscielny’s injury brings to light the massive summer rebuild task of Arsenal’s defence

By |2018-05-05T08:15:13+01:00May 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC|0 Comments

What absolutely tragic news for poor old Laurent Koscielny. Yesterday Didier Deschamps confirmed that our number one centre half would miss the World Cup and when you consider his age profile, as well as the problems he's had with his achilles in recent years, this is a crushing blow for one of our most consistent performers [...]

Arsène to give new manager an ‘inheritance’ like he got?

It was a fair few years ago now that our Head of Academy Development (of variation of job title thereof) coined the phrase 'automatisms' in an interview when talking about the little partnerships and bits that 'click' within a component parts of a team, but that's what has me thinking this morning. Specifically after we [...]

Some stepping up needed from Welbz and other rotated players

Match day for The Arsenal again and despite the fact it's the closest you could get to a dead rubber without actually being a dead rubber, I'm still excited to be going along to see The Arsenal play a game, having not seen one live in the flesh for nearly three weeks now. The opposition [...]

Arsène and his players disrespect Forest, the FA Cup and the fans

Yesterday morning I may not have been able to predict which Arsenal players would start yesterday afternoon's FA Cup third round game away to Nottingham Forest, but given our away form this season in pretty much all competitions, there could be a fairly decent degree of performance that I would expect to be put in. [...]

Chelsea will target our left and hit on the break

I can't say that I'm particularly confident about tonight. An Arsenal team that looks like its struggling for form and confidence at time, with the added pressure of that most usual of things - a long old injury list - up against an efficient Chelski team who have been grinding out victories and have been [...]

Injuries to force Arsène’s formation hand tomorrow?

Morning folks. Gee-golly it's a cold one in London this morning, sure to be as frosty as Arsène's response when he's asked why he can't put together a team that can win consistently away from home. Wins against Watford, Stoke and Southampton this last weekend just gone would probably see us as one of the [...]
