Arsenal should stand strong in the face of transfer sale adversity

Yesterday Arsenal lost a pre season, behind-closed-doors, game at London Colney to Brentford. We went down 2-1 to goals from footballers I've never heard of, with Nketiah getting our goal in between the two Brentford goals. Now, if we're going to caveat all of our victories this summer as 'it's only pre season', then this [...]

Arsenal need an away goal and no defensive brain farts against Valencia

I hope that this morning when you woke up you hugged your children a little bit tighter than you usually do. Because unless Arsenal progress this evening against a Valencia side who fancy their chances up against our awful defence, then we're in a whole world of trouble, of biblical proportions. Last night's result means [...]

Arsenal’s lack of athleticism causing this slump?

Looks like it's time to start booking in those caves in remote far-flung destinations of the word because if the Totts beat Ajax to the final tonight then it won't be a final I'll be wanting to watch or know the result of. I'm already on a personal social media lockdown after last night's capitulation [...]

Patience and professionalism the key for Arsenal at home to Brighton

It's the last home game of the season today, a chance to say goodbye to Cech and Ramsey and quite unbelievably, a game in which winning could still keep us in the hunt for a final day top four spot. Quite how we are still in it is beyond me but bizarrely after the Tiny [...]

Auba changes the complexion of semi final

I thought last night's game against Valencia worked out well in the end, considering where we were on the 12th minute, a goal down and looking as ropey as ever at the back. But let's give some credit to 'home team Arsenal' - a very different proposition to 'away team Arsenal' - because they bounced [...]

An away goal (or lack of) could be essential tonight for Arsenal’s cup hopes

Here we are folks. This game this evening represents - in my opinion - one of the most important in the season for these Arsenal players. That's because our horrendous away form invariably means that we are going to struggle at the Mestalla and so unless we win - and win well - tonight, I [...]

Leicester: that’s top four out for Arsenal’s bottlers

Let's not hide behind any kind of faux injustice brought about by Ainsley Maitland-Niles' sending off in the first half yesterday: this Arsenal team was probably defeated before it even took to the field. Nine goals conceded in three games against three opponents who have nothing to play for other than some additional points on [...]

Draxler or Mkhitaryan for Arsenal?

I don't know about you but my first full working week back in the office absolutely flew by, which is grand because a) I do love a weekend, and b) it's the return of Premier League Football to (hopefully) wash that bitter taste in my mouth brought about by the Nottingham Forest FA Cup debacle.
