Press conference brings good news…

Morning guys. So then, the occasion has finally arrived. Thomas Partey is not only back in training but he’ll be in the squad on Monday night. Thomas had a session before the last game and now he’s done two consecutive sessions so he should be part of the squad on...

Could Arsenal go back for Mudryk?

Morning all. In FA Cup week, Manchester City and Liverpool progressed through to the quarter-final with ease but both Chelsea and Manchester Utd needed very late goals to secure their place in the next round. Newcastle Utd needed penalties to see off Blackburn whilst...

Sentiment doesn’t often bring success…

Morning all. Who’d have thought that Jorginho, Jakub Kiwior and Kai Havertz would have quietly made a big difference to Mikel Arteta’s first team performances. Jorginho against Liverpool and Newcastle, was superb and walked away from both with the man of the match...

Summer plans confirmed. March a big month…

Morning all. I didn’t watch the League Cup Final but having read about it this morning, it seems Chelsea’s multi pound squad should have won it. Shoulda’ coulda’ doesn’t win matches though and by the end of extra time, Van Dijk’s late header had won Klopp another...

Rampant Arsenal dish out Newcastle spanking!

Morning all. Pre match, Mikel Arteta and Martin Odegaard had asked the Arsenal fans to bring their voices with them to The Emirates for last nights game. They probably didn’t need to ask but boy, the stadium really was rocking and I doubt the sound on television did...

Arsenal v Newcastle – watching the clock.

Down, but far from out!

Morning all. Call it stupid, naive, sloppy – call it what you want but perhaps I prefer inexperience. 93 minutes on the clock, with just one to go, the only thing Arsenal should be doing is keeping the ball or booting it into row z. A hoof up the pitch was not...

Porto v Arsenal – it’ll be tough.

Morning all. As we all know, if one looks hard enough, answers to most questions can be found on the internet so I went searching in attempt to find out what Porto FC are all about. After being bamboozled by tactical jargon, the gist is, they’re going to be difficult...

Jesus and Zinchenko, Kiwior and Trossard.

Morning all. A few of us have touched on this subject already I know but how will Mikel Arteta deal with the return of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko? More to the point, what are your thoughts? Jakub Kiwior has gone from strength to strength, notching up...

Five Star Arsenal on a day of positive results.

Utd then Burnley – big game day for The Arsenal…

  Morning all. Another away fixture for Mikel Arteta and his players and it could be a tough one. Burnley are in a relegation battle so they need points. They’re seven points behind Luton who sit fourth from bottom. Any one of nine clubs could in theory be...
