Morning folks and welcome to Thursday, as we tick ever-closer towards that game against Palace for the 12.30pm kick off on Saturday lunchtime. I'd asked for a marginal gain of Everton and Palace going to extra time last night and whilst it was unfortunate that it never happened, the fact that Palace put out a strong [...]

Arsenal can’t go full ‘Disgrace of Gijon’ tonight, but hopefully not too far off

Here cometh another match day, only this one is a little weirder than they usually are, on account of the outcome of tonight's game meaning LITERALLY nothing to anybody involved in Eindhoven. An Arsenal win keeps us top with 15 points. They stay on eight points and if Lens beat Sevilla at home then they [...]

It’s tight towards the top for The Arsenal

Morning folks, hope we're all good? After the midweek of pretty tasty results for us, the weekend fare wasn't quite what we'd have hoped for, as pretty much all the teams around us picked up points and it's dropped us down to second, a point behind Liverpool. But hey, that is always going to happen; [...]

The long wait has ended – will Arsenal respond in the Champions League

We’ve waited for this match day for a long time, haven’t we, eh? Arsenal back in the Champions League. It’s a place that for so many years we took for granted and I seem to recall all those years ago (probably around this time seven years ago) thinking (and maybe writing but I can't be [...]

The Balogun / Nketiah debate – can we have both?

Morning folks and welcome to Wednesday. Having to go old school on the blog today, because the desktop version of the site seems to have gone down, so until that is up and running, I’m penning some thoughts from the iPhone, so please excuse the inevitable typos and predictive text change words in to other [...]

Arsenal’s London bus approach to transfers as Kiwior is on the verge…

You wait all January for a shiny new player, then two come along in the space of 48 hours! Well, sort of... That's because yesterday as we were just starting to read all the #content in relation to Leandro Trossard, then out of nowhere we get an Ornbomb on Jakub Kiwior from Spezia. I'll come [...]

How much rotation can Arsenal afford right now? Brighton preview

Morning campers and welcome to the final day of 2022, which also happens to be a match day for The Arsenal. It’s Brighton who we travel to early this New Years Eve and by gum, this feels like it’s going to be a tough old fixture to see out the year and start of the [...]

Do Arsenal really want/need Mudryk?

Well, it seemed as though yesterday we got our first properly credible link to the Shaktar winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, as David Ornstein reported yesterday mid morning that he was our number one priority. Ornstein doesn't touch rumours unless they have some kind of credibility to him so on the basis of that and years of [...]

A new mental mindset test for Arsenal against PSV tonight

This evening could very well see Arsenal secure top spot in the Europa League Group stages with a win or a draw against PSV in Eindhoven and with Arsenal looking a little leggy at the weekend as a result of the volume of games (in my opinion), the game must represent somewhat of a conundrum [...]
