Free kicks and small details – can that be Arsenal’s difference maker?

Do you know what's funny? This time last week my mind was full of positivity and basking in the glow of a post-Liverpool victory. That win felt massive, it felt huge, because we'd beaten a team who were on a fantastic run and who many thought that a draw would be alright for The Arsenal. [...]

Arsenal control a sorry West Ham

Well what a result that was for The Arsenal yesterday, eh? It was a performance that had everything: control, goals, returning player narratives, screamers, ole's from the away fans, the lot. If you ask me what the perfect away day looks like, it would be what those Arsenal players delivered at the London Stadium in [...]

Will we see Zinchenko, Jesus, Tomi or Kiwior tomorrow?

Morning folks and welcome to Saturday. We've still got over 24 hours until we rock up at The London Stadium (one of the worst to get in and out of I've ever experienced, I have to say) and yesterday Arteta was doing his usual press conference stuff in the afternoon to give us an insight [...]

Realising what Arsenal are going to get on Sunday against West Ham

Morning folks. Happy Friday - hope you're all good? We did an interesting pod last night with Alan Alger and Anthony Gale (son of Tony Gale, ex-West Ham player), which was a match preview, a bit of discussion over xG and its uses, as well as the over celebration discussion that has been rumbling on [...]

Arsenal can bask, but it’s a run of wins that is imperative now

Morning Gooners, we all good? Do you know? I don't think I've basked enough since Sunday. I mentioned it yesterday in the blog but in reality I watched the game, I got home, quickly wolfed down some food, went on the Same Old Arsenal pod to talk about it, then watched Match of the Day, [...]

Arsenal need to not be wasteful with chances against West Ham

This feels like a big one for us tonight, because after Liverpool's win and City getting helped by officials for their second goal yesterday, anything other than three points at The Emirates this evening will feel like we've lost a bit of ground on the main protagonists around us this season. West Ham at home [...]

Some questions in the absence of Kai tomorrow

Yesterday I drove up to see the Management's family for our 'part two' of Christmas and as we travelled up I decided to flick on the radio to have a listen to the Newcastle v Forest game. I do love the Christmas period because aside from Christmas Day, there is football on basically all the [...]

Arsenal and Arteta’s control – we’re getting used to it

Last night after I'd had my dinner I quickly checked my phone to see the Scum v West Ham score. It was about 20 minutes in and I saw that they had bagged one early so I put my phone down and tucked in to some festive TV. "I'm not watching the media love in of [...]

Defeat at West Ham – It’s the manner rather than the result that irritates

That was a pretty miserable night last night, if truth be told. I made the schlep all the way to the other side of London, to that soulless bowl of a stadium, having had to virtually sprint at every stage coming from West London as I had an over-running work event that I had to [...]
