Lavia links make a lotta sense

This might be a short one today, on account of the fact that there really is bugger all happening in the world of Arsenal right now. Well, I’m sure that’s not strictly true, because I’m sure Edu, Richard Garlick and the other back office staff who deal with contracts and transfers are doing something, but [...]

Late drama doesn’t change the fact: title challenge done?

Well, that’s that then, title done and the little hope we had of maybe ending our 19 year wait for a title has evaporated right in front of my very eyes at the Emirates on an utterly atrocious night - from a defensive point of view - for The Arsenal. Southampton had scored 24 goals [...]

Show you want to be champions: beat the Saints, Arsenal

It’s match day tonight and, I’ll be completely honest with you not only am I worried that we might not deliver the kind of assured performance of a team that sits top of the league, but I’m also slightly concerned about our season longer term. That’s because Arteta had his press conference yesterday and confirmed [...]

Keep the eyes on Southampton, not what City are doing, Gooners

By |2023-04-20T08:28:32+01:00April 20th, 2023|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, injuries, premier league|0 Comments

I don't particularly want to dwell on Man City too much today, but given it is they who are currently in the way of a first league title for us since god knows when, perhaps it is inevitable that I - like many Arsenal fans I converse with online - are paying particular attention to [...]

Saliba injury forcing us to think ahead to that City game

Morning folks. Yesterday I put a tweet out about how I'd almost forgotten how rubbish Monday's are after a disappointing performance from Arsenal. We've been that good all season that out of the 28 or 29 match weeks (I know we are on game 31 but there have been midweek Premier League matches so sometimes [...]

Leggy Arsenal get sucker punched by Southampton

There's no doubt that this morning there will be plenty of frustrated Gooners waking up and slightly stewing on the result that we had yesterday at St Mary's against Southampton. After last season where we lost with pretty much their only attempt at goal, yesterday afternoon's game was one that I thought we would see [...]

Arsenal need to start fast against the Saints

By |2022-10-23T08:49:02+01:00October 23rd, 2022|Arsenal FC, Attack, Defence, gooners, Gunners, Match Preview, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

With some more results yesterday going our way (Liverpool loss to Norwich and Chelsea and United dropping points), the opportunity for Arsenal to go even further from the chasing pack - City aside - in the Champions League spaces, is clear and obvious today. It’s a trip to a ground that has hardly been a [...]

A great Gabriel day – for him and us

Happy Saturday you wonderful people. It might be an Arsenal-less one, but hopefully you can find enough enjoyable other things in your life to have a good one nonetheless. The good news from an Arsenal perspective today is that Gabriel - the big one at centre half - confirmed that he’s signed a new deal [...]

Will Southampton dictate Mikel’s selection against PSV?

By |2022-10-19T08:06:20+01:00October 19th, 2022|analysis, Arsenal, Arsenal FC, Europa League, gooners, Gunners, Mikel Arteta, premier league|0 Comments

With all  Premier League teams in action this midweek, I had a little look at who Southampton were up against tonight, because we play them at the weekend and that might impact the team selection that Hassenhuttl makes, as well as how he's going to rotate before we play them on Sunday. I saw it [...]

Mikel’s decisions: How to use his squad to its fullest in the next week

Happy Tuesday folks, hope you're having a good one and you're planning on making this a great day. We only get so many of them on this planet so try to make as many of them as memorable as possible. Difficult without the footy, granted, but at least the matches are stacking up now and [...]
