Welbeck back in for Giroud to taunt the Foxes once again – AFC v LCFC

Tonight’s clash with Leicester City marks our first game on home soil for three weeks, with that 3-0 win and performance against West Ham now a very distant memory. Since then we had the disaster that was Crystal Palace away, followed by Arsene Wenger’s unexpected tactical switch to a 5-3-1-1 with wing-backs at Middlesbrough. Then […]

To 352 or not to 352 Mr Wenger? – That is the FA Cup Semi Final Question

We face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final today, and, given it’s the only trophy we have any chance of winning this season, I would be delighted to see our players fired up for the occasion. However these last three months have knocked any hope out of me. In fact, we haven’t played good […]

Mertesacker back to counter Carroll’s Aerial Threat v Hammers

We play West Ham today, and it’s about time we got a league win under our belts. Despite beating Slaven Bilic’s side comfortably back in December, the game up until half-time was much more even than the final score suggested. It was, indeed, reflected in the half-time score – 1-0 to the Arsenal in the […]

Ozil out left in a 433 versus Bayern Tonight as Wenger opts for solidity?

Our annual trip to Munich is coming to a head today, with yet another showdown against the Bavarian giants on the cards. Undoubtedly we are the underdogs once again. Because of our far-from-stellar form, because of the general lack of belief in our ability to get a result, and obviously because Bayern are just a […]

Bould Arsenal will unleash a Front 3 of Ox, Welbz and Lucas against van Dijkless Saints

Howdy. We face Southampton in 4th round of the FA Cup today and will be looking to secure passage to round 5 for the 17th time in 21 years. Southampton have become something of a bogey team for us. We have only managed to beat the Saints four times from 11 attempts since their promotion […]

Wenger to resist a Ramsey Return and rightly so – WHUFC v AFC Preview

Howdy. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written a regular preview. Hopefully now that Arsenal have found their groove (knocks on wood) I’m back for good. Huge thumbs-up to Dave for doing a top job of standing in for yours truly at such a hard time. We are facing West Ham at Boleyn Ground […]

Sheffield Wednesday preview: can a depleted Arsenal side get the result?

Another day, another game. They really are coming thick and fast, which has its benefits, of course. But also its downsides. The obvious one being fatigue. No player, however physically fit, can play three games a week for even a fortnight, let alone three or four weeks in a row, which is exactly what we […]

Gunners can’t afford to come unstuck versus Toffees as injuries mount

Another league game looms large and another tough opponent awaits us. I gotta say Arsenal’s fixture list hardly does us any favours: between two international breaks we face(d) Watford, Bayern Munich (twice), Everton, Swansea, Tottenham and Sheffield Wednesday. All of this inside three weeks, meaning we are forced to play every three days, but the […]

Dinamo Zagreb preview: all about building up momentum

Well, this is awkward. A few times a season such a thing happens: we play a team I know nothing, or next to nothing, about. And yet I have to write a preview. In such cases I try to concentrate more on what we do and how we approach the game and this is exactly […]

If only CFC expired as much energy in dealing with accusations of Racism as they have with being Boring and Hull v Arsenal Preview

Team news At this point in time there’s not much to dissect in terms of team news. We didn’t sustain any fresh injures against Chelsea. Our only absentee will be Mathieu Debuchy, who has a bit of hamstring problem, poor fella. On the upside, Arteta and Oxlade may return soon if not for our visit […]
