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

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?

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 [...]

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 [...]

The last of the exits at Arsenal

Happy Friday folks - how we all doing? Looking forward to the weekend? I know I am! It'll be a bank holiday, Arsenal are playing, I'm around the parental units this weekend (and now actually) to spend some time with my family as it's my brother's birthday, plus we've got a press conference today in [...]

Arsenal’s attacking problems stare us all in the face against Southampton

Yesterday's defeat was painful in so many ways. It was painful because the Scum had given us an opportunity to draw level and we didn't take it. Its was painful because it was obvious to see that Southampton were not very good. It was painful because we picked the right starting line up in my [...]

Arsenal must change the approach and personnel to counter Southampton’s high press

I had a nervousness before the Crustal Palace game that belied the form that Arsenal had going in to it. I was nervous ahead of the Brighton game that belied the terrible form Brighton were in. I am nervous ahead of this game which belies the fact Southampton took an absolute pasting last weekend and [...]

Praying for Arteta’s admission of errors

There was no press conference yesterday so it'll mean we'll get to hear from Mikel Arteta today and although today is titled 'Good Friday' in the Christin calendar, I'm not expecting any 'good' news from the injury front. I suspect it'll simply be that the players that are injured are still injured, that we have [...]

Why do I now fear Arteta’s selection approach?

I chose my words to the title for today's musings quite carefully here. I know there are people that are convinced that Arteta is, from a tactical perspective, a man who knows his onions and he has shown that at times this season. I also know that there are a proportion - a small one [...]
