Fairytale Arsenal ending for era-defining game?

Morning Gooners. One day down, another seven to go until we learn our fate and from what I hear this game is almost certainly viewed within the club as a watershed moment. Especially when it comes to summer plans. If Champions League football is on the table for next season then everything changes, not only [...]

Patience and professionalism the key for Arsenal at home to Brighton

It's the last home game of the season today, a chance to say goodbye to Cech and Ramsey and quite unbelievably, a game in which winning could still keep us in the hunt for a final day top four spot. Quite how we are still in it is beyond me but bizarrely after the Tiny [...]

Arsenal and Unai taking ‘The Greys’

If you're a regular reader you'll be well aware of my 90s obsession with Championship Manager as a kid. In many ways it basically set the tone for any kind of tactical analysis of the game, which probably explains why I'm not really too great when it comes to some of the in depth, data [...]

Don’t underestimate the warm up act – Blackpool at home

Back on the horse today lads, there's an opportunity to extend the undefeated run to 13 and despite the fact we're all bricking it for Saturday evening, we should still approach tonight's game with the right attitude, approach and hopefully, safe passage in to the quarter finals of the League Cup. Blackpool are tonight's opponents [...]

Cech stars as momentum gathers against Everton

A few 'firsts' from yesterday's game that were worth picking up on I thought. First of the 'firsts' - a clean sheet! How about that eh? Turns out we do know how to do those, even with our most impressive defender of the season - Sokratis - picking up an injury early on and being [...]

Lacazette the star, but defensively we’re a nervous wreck

By |2018-09-03T11:17:18+01:00September 3rd, 2018|Arsenal FC, Defence, Match Review, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

Winning football matches away from home you say? Well yes please. Although perhaps we could work on making it a little bit easier for ourselves by actually doing it without brain farting our way in to conceding goals and having to rely on our forwards to do the business each week, eh? From the first [...]

New manager = players saying new things

Because we haven't had a new manager in so many years prior to this summer, we haven't seen the usual "this manager is working us soooo much more harder than the last one" type comments from footballers at Arsenal, so yesterday's comments from Bellerin are welcome but I personally take it with a pinch of [...]
