When better is still only average – Another Emery Formation, another lead surrendered!!

‘When Better is Average ‘ Positives, Needs and Hopes   If I was the Arsenal board then yesterday’s game would have troubled me more than all the others.   Why? I’d say that when you’ve had a group of miserable performances and then (finally) play better, even if it’s a little better, and you still […]

It’s Mo or nothing: can Elneny become the surprise provider for the Gunners? – Newcastle preview

We are off to Newcastle today and the one stat that caught my eye was the following: we haven’t lost five consecutive away games since 1925. As it stands, we are on a run of four successive losses on the road. Our recent home form made the situation look better than it is. Five straight […]

Ram, Bam, Thankyou Ma’am! Can Ramsey and Aubameyang help Gunners Down Saints?

We take on Southampton today, looking to build on the back-to-back league wins and a midweek bashing of CSKA. Even though Southampton have lost consecutive games with an identical 3-0 scoreline (to West Ham and Newcastle no less), I’m still wary of the threat they pose. A number of our recent clashes come to mind, […]

Do Arsenal actually still have any ‘Bouncebackability’? – AFC v MCFC II

Probably the single thing that sums up the current situation at Arsenal best is that I’m hoping for our game today to be called off due to weather conditions in London. It’ll likely go ahead and I’ll have to write about another defeat come Friday. Even the fact we are playing at home does little […]

It’s now or never for the Gunners in a chase for top 4: #NLD preview

It’s the early kick-off for the North London derby today, as Arsenal play what will be their last league game for almost three weeks. Certainly a space oddity if you ask me, but it’s down to cup games in-between. It won’t be three weeks of rest for the Gunners of course, because Wenger’s men still […]

Will we finally see Jack and Rambo start together? – The Welshman is key to revive Lacazette!

It seems not so long ago we have played Palace away in that crazy 3-2 win … And indeed it wasn’t that long ago, just a day over three weeks back. You do get those reverse fixtures around New Year. Chelsea, for instance, are facing Brighton for the second time in a matter of weeks. […]

Last Chance Saloon for Wenger, Senior Fringe Players and Arsenal’s domestic season – CFCvAFC Semi

We take on Chelsea for the the second time inside 6 days and my fear Wenger is going to field a squad not dissimilar to the one which crashed out of the cup three days ago. Mercifully, there’s the small matter of these guys having to play a second game in just a matter of […]

Injury Blues ahead of facing the Blues – Debuchy or Niles in with Kolasinac joining Monreal out?

Antonio Conte’s men visit the Emirates today, and somehow I feel even less optimistic about our chances to come out on top than before the Liverpool game. In part this feeling is down to the turgid performance we produced at the Hawthorns, in part because our growing injury list restricts Wenger’s options. Also, there’s that […]

Can the Gunners halt the high-flying Eagles? – Crystal Palace preview

We visit Selhurst Park today, in an attempt to right the wrongs of the last meeting between the two sides. There’s also the small matter of Arsenal winning just one of their last five league games: a slender 1-0 victory over Newcastle. Crystal Palace, followed by West Brom, will cap off this calendar year and […]

Will Coquelin be drafted in to counter Klopp’s Fab Four? – AFC v LFC

We take on Liverpool today and I can’t say I’m particularly optimistic going into this one. I have watched Klopp’s side dismantle Bournemouth away, with a 4-0 spanking. This was Liverpool’s fourth successive away win by 3 or more goals (4-1 vs West Ham, 3-0 vs Stoke, 5-1 vs Brighton and now 4-0 vs Bournemouth), […]
