Swansea away: we used to be beautifully flawed, now we’re just flawed

I was going to start today by saying something like "where do I even start?" but this morning after yet another pathetic Arsenal display - the type of away display performance we've seen all season from this ailing team - I think I'll just throw up some of the utterly embarrassing stats that I've seen [...]

Swansea preview: desperate for an early goal

The build up to tonight's league encounter with Swansea may be dominated by a certain player coming in from Dortmund and a certain handsome Arsenal player being an option for that most horrid of clubs Chelski, but I'm preferring to focus on the reason we are here today, which is the stuff that's played on [...]

The waiting game: Aubameyang

Sometimes football can be as predictable as TV soap operas can't it? Particularly football's equivalent of the gutter trash storylines, which are usually the most sleazy in January and the summer months. So in what is this winters latest plot we saw the development late last night that most of us must have expected following [...]

I’m loving Sead: Arsenal vs Swansea review

I hate trotting out footballing cliches but, as I made my way home with the old man yesterday from The Emirates, it was hard to describe yesterday's win against Swansea as anything other than the proverbial 'game of two halves'. The first was one of laboured, predictable passing that had the inevitable sucker-punch from pretty [...]

Out of touch board klaxon; Arsène team update for Swansea

If the Kroenke spin machine was in full force on Wednesday night, then the Chips Express that trundled into town on Thursday was a complete derailment.  The AGM took place yesterday and as usual it was an affair of relatively pointless corporate nothingness, but unlike usual it was presided over by a man who couldn’t [...]

Arsenal – it’s time for a run

Well who'da think that Everton would be capable of giving Man City a pasting like they did yesterday, eh? And just think, fourth months ago City were going to walk the league, Pep would be crowned the messiah reincarnate, English football would never be the same again and we'd all just give up.  And now [...]

We realised we were Arsenal after 30 minutes at Swansea

Yesterday's blog called for Arsenal to be controlling in midfield and retain possession of the ball. We aren't a team who can soak up pressure without it and defensively we just aren't disciplined enough to give our opponents the ball for too much of the time.  So after the first fifteen minutes of the game, [...]

Controlling the midfield – key for Arsenal today

A tricky away one for us today I think. Swansea have been absolutely gash for most of the season, but they always love playing against us and with 'New Manager Syndrome' sure to be percolating through their squad today, we have to be mindful that the players will probably be giving a little bit extra [...]

A bizarre victory against Swansea, but a victory nonetheless

Well lads and lasses, I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no idea what to make of yesterday's game. I don't know if I should be a little worried about the way in which we handed Swansea a few lifelines, or happy about the fact that at times we were breathtaking and ultimately [...]
