Nketiah and Pepe give Arteta something to think about after Sunderland win

There's no besmirching a 5-1 win, that's for sure and when you do it having rotated most of your team in the League Cup during a busy festive schedule, waking up the next morning feels all the more jubilant I reckon. We've seen plenty of instances in the past where rotated teams for Premier League [...]

Rotation is key but perhaps a fresh face in midfield for The Arsenal?

Match day again and today it's the Carabao/League/Littlewoods/Carling/Rumbelows/Milk Cup that will see Arsenal face off at home to Sunderland for a place in the Semi Final. Football is all about winning matches and, more specifically, trying to win trophies and a win tonight would take us close enough to a semi-final tie in which we'd [...]

Maintain the momentum, Arsenal

Tonight's game against Sunderland is probably the closest you'll ever get to a 'dead rubber' game without it being an actual dead rubber or a game I think. Sunderland are down and have nothing but 'pride' to play for, which I've always found a ludicrous comment to make, because if you're relegated because you are [...]

Dominance at Sunderland, with all of the squad showing form

I can tell you this right now - going for afternoon cakes in house of Sunderland supporters after your team has just put them to the sword by four goals to one - is definitely more preferable than doing it when the result is not in one's favour. Having spoken to The Management's family about [...]

Arsenal need high intensity early, taking advantage of the flanks, against Sunderland

An away trip to Sunderland for a lunchtime kick off it is for us all today. Well, obviously not those in different time zones, but we'll all be watching it live at the same time. I've assumed the usual position of being up in Northumberland seeing The Management's family this weekend, allowing me to profit [...]

Arsène’s easyJet deal; Jenko a capable understudy

In classic Arsène and Arsenal style, I predicted a press conference yesterday, which inevitably led to there being none whatsoever. I have a history of shoddy predictions when it comes to Arsenal, which is why I don't bother making them on the blog usually, especially when it comes to games. I don't need that kind [...]

Small victories, marginal gains and The Ox

When it comes to football, I like to think of every conceivable way in which Arsenal can gain an advantage, against every current and future opponent. Which is why I always look out for upcoming opposition matches, to see if there is any injuries, suspensions, or even poor form that I can hold on hope [...]
