High Intensity Leeds could be a problem for Arsenal today

By |2022-10-16T09:53:25+01:00October 16th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

This is going to be really tough today. A lot tougher than I think I thought it would be, actually, because Leeds will want to come at us and hit us hard and fast and we need to be ready. They have had a week off to prepare for our arrival. They will have spent [...]

Arsenal’s accordion pressing approach – this is just the start (hopefully)

By |2022-08-07T11:21:34+01:00August 7th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, Mikel Arteta, premier league, Tactics|0 Comments

Morning folks, happy Saturday and all that jazz. Much nicer to face an entire weekend knowing that The Arsenal did their job early, eh? It meant I could look at the games yesterday with a little more of a shrug than I would have done if we'd have drawn or lost. Okay, I see that [...]

Arsenal building momentum with impressive win at Leicester

By |2021-03-01T08:04:08+00:00March 1st, 2021|Arsenal, Attack, Defence, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

I so much more enjoy writing a post match review after a victory. Monday mornings become so much more palatable! So it is that we all get to start this working week with the sweet smell of victory metaphorically permeating our nostrils this morning, having gone to Leicester and delivered an impressive performance against a [...]

Part two of three for an uncomfortable week for Arsenal methinks

I don't know whether it is the sheer volume of games coming thick and fast, or the inner acceptance I have that this is just the second of what could be three pretty uncomfortable football watching  evenings, but I'm really not feeling tonight. Therefore by association, I don't have the same match day jitters that [...]

Arteta the unknown gives excitement ahead of tough Bournemouth game

Happy Boxing Day folks. It's a football-infused one today and wouldn't you know it, Arsenal have an actual 3pm kick off for a change. We also have a level of excitement that genuinely hasn't existed all season, because it's the first official game of Mikel Arteta's reign in charge and the possibilities feel endless. That's [...]

Freddie’s Arsenal to be freed against Norwich?

By |2019-12-01T08:42:53+00:00December 1st, 2019|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Attack, Defence, Formation, Match Preview, premier league|0 Comments

Happy match day folks. And it's a match day in which there exists much more optimism and hope as a result of a new man picking the team than we've had for some time. It's Freddie's Arsenal now and that means anything could happen today. Which is exciting. We could get a total change of [...]

Emery’s presser suggests he knows he has to deliver swagger back to Arsenal

Happy Friday folks. And see you in hell international break, which I don' think we have for about four months now, so thank heavens for that. Of course come 5pm on Saturday evening I could wish we were still on the international break, but whilst the future of the game at home to Southampton is [...]

Stop Bournemouth’s pace and through balls with our press

This game today is a difficult one to call you know. Ten years ago a team that goes up against Arsenal to 'play football' used to be an absolute dream for us, because we'd soon put them to the sword. But ever since Swansea and Michu all those years ago, teams have been able to [...]

Liverpool result shows Emery is getting through to the players

By |2018-11-05T08:10:24+00:00November 5th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, premier league, Tactics, Unai Emery|2 Comments

I didn't blog yesterday on account of a raging hang over that really didn't see me feel human until about 2pm yesterday, but suffice to say that despite my personal fear and negativity surrounding a potential home battering by Liverpool, we have a really good account of ourselves and I think most Gooners will be [...]

Momentum is great for Arsenal, but realism is more important

By |2018-10-24T07:56:21+01:00October 24th, 2018|Arsenal FC, Arsenal Manager, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, premier league, Unai Emery|0 Comments

It's the middle of the week already and having had that most boredom inducing thing of an international break last week, there's barely any time to catch our breath, as the team travel out tonight for Sporting Lisbon away tomorrow. It should mean an Emery press conference and I must admit I'm pleased to be [...]
