Pepe wonder goal but Willock the star man.

    Morning all, With so many changes, to expect perfection would have been naive. Dundalk were always going to park the bus but even so, it was up to Mikel Arteta and his youthful group of players to find a way through. They did.     Yes, there...

Go and win it with the kids!

  Morning all. Probably not a night off for all our first team players as a few are bound to be on the bench just in case. Mustafi is likely to start because Mikel Arteta’s options are limited. Only he and Gabriel are fully fit. Mikel Arteta held his pre-match...

A teaser. ‘Fatigue’ should mean changes.

Morning all. If there’s one good thing about be an Arsenal fan not born and bred in north London is one always has a local team to support. Right now I’m fortunate because as Arsenal are huffing and puffing their way through 95 minutes of football twice a week, my...

Time to ditch front men?

Morning all. Will there come a time when Mikel Arteta says enough is enough. Mesut Ozil has been binned because of football reasons, so when does he call time on a few more. We’ll all have our own little list but I’d imagine that Xhaka, Mustafi, Lacazette and perhaps...

Missed opportunities hurt Arsenal.

Morning all. British summertime ended yesterday with the clocks going back an hour. Arsenal played like the clocks had gone back twelve months or more. I find it concerning that the team are so toothless in attack. All the time the score remained 0-0, the Brendan...

A good win, but lacking bite.

Morning all. Just how good was Thomas Partey? Of course he’ll face tougher opponents than last night’s Rapid Vienna but even so, the way he covered the pitch, his energy and slick footwork was so pleasing on the eye. I think we have a seriously good player in Partey....

Ohhhh Vienna. Ozil goes public, Arteta responds.

Morning all. 〽️⚽️ #M1Ö #YaGunnersYa pic.twitter.com/hF7abGklOT — Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) October 21, 2020   Mikel Arteta was asked about Ozil’s statement during his press conference yesterday evening. A full transcript can be read on Arsenal.com but...

Two options left for Ozil and Sokratis.

Morning all. Premier League clubs had to submit their 25 man squad details to he FA by 2pm yesterday. Having left Mesut Ozil and Sokratis of his Europa League squad, Mikel Arteta followed suit on the domestic front. Perhaps a cruel way to pretty much end a players...

Arsenal’s defending second to one..

Morning all. What an odd weekend of football in the Premier League. Our match was pretty disappointing and not just because we lost but because we could and should have come away with at least a point. After the game, Bernd Leno said the gap between the two teams was...

Does the big guy have a point?

Morning all. This might sound negative but Arsenal’s attacking play is little short of bad. The lack of creativity, pace, movement, swift passing is as clear as day. I don’t just mean against Man City, but in general. It’s been that way since long before Arsene Wenger...

Costly errors, costly misses.

Morning all. I was hoping that this would be a game which wouldn’t leave us talking about errors made by the officials. A penalty missed when Walker booted Gabriel in the head, not even reviewed by VAR, a Mahrez booking for tugging an Arsenal player back when we tried...
