Trust in your squad, but go strong up top, Arsenal

Another matchday for our boys and it's Europa League action tonight to take centre stage of our minds. I think the mindset of Arsenal fans I follow online is so fascinating with this one, you know, because there seems to be a big split between whether or not we 'go for it' and play the [...]

Arsenal’s average record in Portugal means Arteta won’t rotate much

Morning folks and welcome to match day. Hope we're all good? Inexplicably and completely without any intention, I grabbed the first football shirt that I could find in my wardrobe last night to wear today for work (desk jockey who can work from home, so I pretty much wear what I want when I'm not [...]

Approaching Man City with calmness – win-win for Arsenal tonight?

Matchday it is and I have to tell you, rather than the usual trepidation I feel ahead of a massive game, I am more excited for this one. Honestly, I really am! I think it is because - as I've said all week - this is priority number three on our list and regardless of [...]

Morning morning Gooners, hope you’re all feeling fan-dabby-dozy on this here Thursday morn? Todays blog is coming to you from inside a BA aircraft, as we take a wee short trip up to Northumberland for The Management’s family birthday dinner on Saturday night. Annoyingly, it means that I can’t make my way up to the [...]

Mass rotation at Oxford must be on the cards for Arsenal

Good morning morning, from a wonderfully sunny Maldives, which is roasting hot too as well as being stunningly beautiful. With all this beauty around me there’s clearly only one thing on my mind, which is: I wonder whether Emile Smith Rowe is fit enough to start this evening? You can take the Gooner out of [...]

Arteta’s good squad management – so far…

Decided to Google 'Arsenal news' this morning to see what the chatter was online.  Wish I hadn't have bothered. It was all talk about potential transfer signings in January. I mean, come on, we're still in October for Christ's sake. Talking about potential signings now is like when supermarkets start putting Christmas items on the [...]

PSV are no mugs – time for Nketiah and Sambi to step up

It's match day, it's p*ssing it down, but I'm as excited as always to have The Arsenal playing this evening. Sure, it may be at a slightly irritating time - what with it being a 6pm kick off and therefore straight after work, but it is still an Arsenal match and that means hopefully an [...]

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 [...]

Bit of Bodo in the coldo for Arsenal this evening

Morning folks and welcome to another match day, in this mental busy period of the season which, so far, has been rather a lot of fun for us. It’s a trip to Norway for the lads today and another one of those horrendously pesky 5.55pm kick offs that they have in the Europa League. Gotta [...]

Mikel, please, rotation this evening!

I think with that title I've made my thoughts about what we should do this evening very plain and clear!! Tonight we're back in action on the European stage and whilst it's not the stage we want - and probably deserve - it is an opportunity for some more midweek football and I have to [...]
