Perspective.

Morning all. One game, one quality performance and one victory over the Toots doesn’t mean Mikel Arteta has cracked it. Nor does is suddenly mean Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back, or Granit Xhaka is some kind of Saint. Yes, the victory against that lot was special,...

What a day!

Morning all. Firstly, I thought the Arsenal fans were fantastic yesterday from start to finish and beyond to the post match interviews. Secondly, it’s easy for the Sky Sports pundits to say that Totts were rubbish etc, and suggest Arsenal won’t play a worse team...

Just another game….?

Morning all. I wrote a long piece yesterday ahead of the NLD this afternoon but binned it. So many questions were in the original like should Xhaka come back into a team which has won the last two League games, should Aubameyang start or Lacazette bearing in mind the...

How might Mikel solve our lack of goals problem?

Morning all. Another great weekend of sport is upon us. The Ryder Cup kicks off later today, there’s a big clash at the top of the Premier League table between Chelsea and Man City and the big fella is back in the ring. Anthony Joshua whose reportedly an Arsenal fan....

Arsenal fans turn up, Arsenal did too.

Morning all. I didn’t see the game, just the highlights, so can’t comment on how we played but we scored three goals which was enough to secure a place in the next round. That fixture will be against Leeds at The Emirates Stadium in the last week of October. The pick...

Arsenal face big scoring team, but they concede too.

Morning all. Arsenal have three fixtures to get through before the October international break is upon us. Wimbledon FLC H – tonight. Toots PL H – Sunday. Brighton PL A – 2nd October. I’m sure the League Cup isn’t a priority for Arsenal this season...

Gutsy Arsenal!

Morning all. Arsenal climbed the table by a few places yesterday after beating Burnley at Turf Moor. A perfectly placed free kick from Martin Ødegaard was enough to seal all three points. I’d say that’s a great result, even if the performance was far from perfect....

Tough challenge, tough performance needed.

Morning all. Burnley’s Connor Roberts, Kevin Long and Dale Stephens miss today’s match through injury. Arsenal have Thomas Partey back fit but whether Mikel Arteta will risk him from the start against what’s expected to be a physical battle with Sean Dyche’s team...

Time to forget the last 21 months and look forward?

Morning all. Football managers do give us all a few giggles don’t they? Players too, I type, as Eric Cantona’s ‘seagulls, trawlers and sardines’ comment springs to mind. Arsene Wenger’s little battles with Mourinho, Fergie and anyone who cheesed the Frenchman off,...

Charlie the 3rd…

Morning all. I can only remember two Charlie’s playing for Arsenal, Charlie George and Charlie Nicholas. George was a character who went from watching his team from the stands to playing on the green green grass of Highbury. 1970-1971 was his season, or at least it...

Five players Arsenal will lose next summer.

Morning all. The transfer window might be shut until the 1st January 2022, a day which will be here before we know it, it doesn’t stop the newspapers from speculating who will do what. Like Silva not staying in England when/if he leaves City which will frustrate...
