Drax-Got ‘ze firepower to secure Alexis & Ozil.‏

Arsenal’s numerous unsuccessful attempts to bring in a world class striker has been well documented in recent times, and rightly so. Once again, this ‘weary-tale’ has begun to take centre stage this summer, with a section of the fan base already bracing themselves for what has now become a customary ‘market impossible’ mission at the […]

Story of a Season Turning in 2016 – ONLY WELBECK has converted Ozil’s chances this year!!

On the back of a possible Era changing 4-0 FA Cup final win over Aston Villa at the end of last season, Arsenal’s 2015/2016 campaign did look destined to be the year where ‘everything comes together’ at the Emirates. That belief was only strengthened by the fact that Arsenal had as stainless a pre-season campaign […]

City despair

The League is a 6 Horse Race but surely Jose’s pony fell at the first fence?

Following the end of 2015’s series of International breaks, club football has once again taken centre stage, to pave way for four un-interrupted months of league action. By the time the next set of FIFA engagements takes place in February, we will be greeted with a less ambiguous picture of clubs’ aspirations, heading into the […]

Arsene’s Power of FOUR – The Affinity of FOUR, the Spine of FOUR and ready in FOUR years

In the aftermath of a dream shattering series of four goals scored, FOUR conceded in a combined square up against Liverpool (1-1) and Tottenham (3-3) within FOUR days in April 2011, Arsenal were once again greeted with a campaign that flirted with title success, following FOUR months of sublime attacking football, literally between December 2010 […]

No Giroud or Walcott but Ramsey, Ozil, Ox and Alexis to the fore

  The activities and fallout from last Sunday’s agonizing derby defeat at the Emirates might still remain unclear and unparalleled but there’s a certain fact already established: This side still struggles when they go behind. That said it’s quite difficult to tell if this season’s opener was a one-off or a reflection of Arsenal’s recent […]

Arsenal’s existing strikeforce can bring us title glory – here’s how.

Arsenal’s attacking transition holds the key to EPL glory next season. In a period where strikers are tagged with astronomical figures, Arsenal go into the season with a real possibility of having an attacking unit devoid of late changes in the transfer market. With Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott looking as comfortable as they’ve […]

The rotation of Cazorla/Wilshere and Ramsey/Ox holds the key to success in 15/16

Arsenal’s 2014/2015 season in many ways has flirted with stability and merited praise. Aside recording back to back cup success, it has ensured sustainability in the team’s form, which sprung to life in the wake of the 2-0 win at the Etihad in January. This could be down to the change in approach (from controlling […]

It is time for Oxlade- Chamberlain & Wilshere to force their ‘Home Grown’ talent into the Arsenal team in 2015/16

The unarguably perceptible fact that Arsene is a smart man cannot be over-emphasized. He has arranged a side with almost a perfect balance of home grown and foreign influx. He also knew a summer like this will arrive, where the need for ‘local lads’ will drive clubs to negotiate desperately. With that in mind, he […]

Julian Draxler

Can Julian Draxler lessen the pressure on Ozil, while also learning his trade from Ollie and Alexis?

Arsenal have built an identity this season with high pressing and swift transitions in attack; a feature which seems the most important weapon of the team, going into next season. However, hassling teams and winning back possession hasn’t always produced the desired objective, which is to become ruthless in the final third. I also don’t […]

Coquelin should play alongside a DM rather than be the DM next season?

I’m the kind of writer who ‘jumps’ into conclusion, probably due to the desire to deliver and share my thoughts, while an observation is still fresh and there to be picked on. This perhaps hastily drives me to inferences that sometimes need polishing ‘here and there’. But make no mistake, I ultimately get the job […]
