Just the way we like it – routine and professional Arsenal win over Sevilla

If you're going to describe the perfectly professional football match in the Champions League, you'd be hard pressed to describe it any better than how last night's 2-0 win against Sevilla played out. Even the score line itself looks like a comfortable one. A 1-0 result makes you think "ooh, it only takes one corner, [...]

Arsenal need to beware the aerials against Sevilla

I think tonight might be a little trickier than some people might think. Going away to Sevilla and getting the result was good, but for some it might add a false sense of security on the outcome of tonight's match, particularly given our injury problems as it stands. No Timber, no Partey, no Smith Rowe, [...]

The importance of Odegaard and Jesus

Turns out that going Invincible isn't for everyone, eh? Well, if you're going to play that high a line against any Premier League side whilst down to ten men, then you absolutely get what you deserve. But I'll speak no more about them today I think, instead reflecting on what it means for us, because [...]

A solid away day for Arsenal in Seville

You'll have to bear with me today on the usual ramblings, because it was the mother-in-laws birthday yesterday and the whole family was down from the north for a meal. I thought I'd be able to slink off for the second half but that was not the case, so today's perception on the game last [...]

What sort of Arsenal will show up in Seville tonight?

We're back to another match day people, and it's Champions League match day numero tres for the Arsenal squad, who travelled to Seville yesterday afternoon ahead of tonight's game against Sevilla FC. I gotta tell ya, I have absolutely no idea what we're going to get this evening. Usually I have a feeling one way [...]

A good Champions League draw and decent Premier League matches after each one

Happy Friday peeps! Today is press conference day and so Mikel will be asked about the Champions League games, the game ahead against United, maybe even what he thinks about Brentford in the League Cup (although, maybe not ;-) ). There's also the small matter of the transfer window closing and I wonder if Mikel [...]

This Arsenal team is ready

Morning morning, fellow gooners! How we all doing? Feeling chipper after that absolute mauling yesterday? I know I am. On top of the world, in fact, because if you’re going to lay down a blueprint for how a pre season should draw to a close, I’m not sure many of us would disagree that giving [...]

Let’s have a look at Arsenal’s in-game tactical flexibility

Morning Gooners and welcome to Saturday matchday. Well, it kind of is, of sorts, as The Arsenal play at home to Sevilla in our final friendly before the new season starts in six days and it'll be our final look at the team that will lock horns with the Eagles for the Friday Night Football [...]

Don’t underestimate the value of a good pre season

Morning all. We all good? Middle of the week for those of us who are Monday to Fridayers and it's a countdown to the final game of the pre season before the real stuff starts. It's Sevilla at home in the Emirates Cup and unlike previous renditions of the competition, it won't be a footballing [...]

Laca learns from Theo, Wenger dials up the spin on contracts

Well that's one shiny and oh so important trophy safely tucked away in the cabinet for another season, as Arsenal conspired to lose to Sevilla but still win the Emirates Cup due to the bizarre system of points scoring based on goals that is in place.  The 2-1 defeat to Sevilla saw us pick up [...]
