Please Mr Emery put Mustafi away for the season and let the sun shine on Arsenal again

What a weekend for sitting out in the sun and enjoying an early summer. Blue skies all around and I should be happy. Unfortunately, a cloud hanging over AFC is spoiling my mini holiday. I have read Mike McDonald`s excellent article and he very succinctly describes his dissatisfaction with Mustafa. I don`t think I could describe […]

Despite the moving of the venue, due to serious political tensions between Russia and Ukraine, the kids amongst the oldies, did well to get a spectacular win here. Smith-Rowe shone brightly and grabbed an early […]

King Jenkinson: the man who succeeded where all else failed. It’s official, Carl Jenkinson is a true Arsenal legend.   Forget Bendtner, forget Ibrahimovic, forget Ronaldo (both of them), Carl Jenkinson is a true footballing god.

Scouting Report on Potential Signings to Replace those with a Year left on Arsenal Contracts – Part 1

After one of Arsenal’s worst Premier League seasons in recent history, there is no doubt one of the big stories was contract renewals, be that of the manager or of star players such as Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil. In this three part series, I look at possible replacements for the nine players whose contracts […]

Jenkinson may love the Arsenal crest, but a parting of the ways may still be best

Jenkinson’s Arsenal allegiance shouldn’t mask his underperformance Perhaps the defining moment of Carl Jenkinson’s Arsenal career came midway through the second half of last Wednesday’s EFL Cup quarter final defeat to Southampton. The right back made a good tackle and moved away from his nearest man. As he travelled the first five yards, he grew […]

Keep the Big Guns in Reserve in case PSG Falter Please

There is much speculation about team selection for tonight’s match. Who is in goal? – Cech or Ospina or even our third string Emiliano Martinez and if there is a guessing game about the goalkeeper slot then double/treble it for the 10 other positions.

Alexis's Fault

Wham! Bam! Thankyou, West Ham! 1- Arsenal 5!

I have to admit I was starting to forget how good a comprehensive win feels. Think our last win happened back in October, when we thrashed Ludogorets. November has been pretty mean in terms of wins, let alone comfortable ones. But yesterday I was reminded of that feeling. After a pretty depressing showing in the […]

November Curse or Something Worse? Truth be told it’s Wenger and Bould!

I have been reading a few scribes player ratings for last night’s match and there is a great deal of similarity in the best and worst of what was generally regarded as another poor show when we failed to turn up. The most common reason for it is the “November Curse”. What annoys me about […]

For Xhaka and Sanchez, a Day to Remember, as Arsenal sign off on Naughty November

Well, that was much better, wasn’t it? A convincing win in the end, an improved performance, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott back on the scoresheet. Still things to work on, obviously, but I’d much rather discuss these after a win. Let’s start with the positive bits though, shall we? Changes to the side I was […]

Old Trafford the First true Test of Arsenal’s New Squad Depth – Will they pass the Test?

Many words have been spent about the impressive depth of our team this season, so I guess that Arsène Wenger’s forgotten men won’t have a better chance to show their worth than Saturday’s match at Old Trafford. According to the latest team news, against Manchester United we’re very likely to miss all our major attacking […]
