After the three points were confirmed against Fulham last weekend, I gave a little fist pump in the air in my kitchen to myself. That felt like a big win. I immediately started thinking about this weekend. "If we can beat Palace and Leeds, then we'll be in a really good position to go for [...]

Arsenal tick all the boxes in routine win over Bodo/Glimt

By |2022-10-07T08:40:30+01:00October 7th, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Europa League, Match Review, Mikel Arteta|0 Comments

With October and November due to be pretty intense months and the games coming thick and fast, what any team really wants from kicking off such an intense period of the season, is for games to pan out nice and stress free with maybe some decent wins and opportunities to rotate players in. At the [...]

Pepe’s value needs a French kick start; holding on to Holding?

It's Rumour-mill: The Exit edition, going on at Arsenal  right now, if you believe all of the papers over the last 24 hours.  We've had Pepe off to Nice, Holding off to Aston Villa, although Hector Bellerin's zero-price move to Betis appears to be going cold. I'll avoid the final player in that trio, but [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Thursday. It's been a weird ol' week for me as I had Tuesday off after a bank holiday Monday wedding and I'm off tomorrow celebrating my mum's birthday by taking her and the ol' man to Cologne for the weekend. So it barely feels like the week has started and [...]

Massive win for Arsenal against West Ham

By |2022-05-02T10:59:46+01:00May 2nd, 2022|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Review, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

What vital win that was yesterday. Arsenal knew that they needed to get a result against a Tottenham side that had been given a leg up with Leicester undertaking massive rotation and basically throwing their match at the Toilet Bowl Stadium. The Scum had gone a point clear of us and a draw or defeat [...]

For the second time in four years Arsenal travelled to the City Ground to play Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup and for the second time in four years Arsenal's FA Cup run was halted as quickly as it began in ignominious fashion as we were knocked out to a [...]

Rotation works as Arsenal progress beyond Leeds in the League Cup

Another win to add to the growing list people, which is never a bad thing, even if it was in the League Cup and with a heavily rotated team. I'm sure you're bored of having to put all the usual caveats in place - "it was only the League Cup", "Leeds fielded a slightly weaker [...]

Holding out for a Tammy?

You know the rumour I can really get behind on a Tuesday morning in terms of outgoings at the club? Rob Holding to Newcastle for £20million. Ooh dawg now THAT would be a good deal that would make us all raise eyebrows and nod impressively at our back office team trying to secure some exits [...]

As much goodness and badness: Chelski friendly review

Plenty to chew over from yesterday's 2-2* draw over Chelski at the Emirates, some good, some shall we say 'less so good'. Let's get the less so good stuff out of the way first though, because I'd rather finish today's blog feeling a little more positive, given that it's a Monday morning. Arteta named a [...]
