Leno or Martinez No.1 for 20/21? – Analysis of Passing, Shot-stopping, Crosses and Experience

It might seem strange to think now, but Neal Maupay may have been the most important man in Arsenal’s 2019/20 season. Suspend your outrage for a second and think back to June the 20th and the awful 2-1 loss to Brighton. At the time Maupay went careered deliberately into Bernd Leno, causing him to fall […]

The Captain Collective Back in August last year, Unai stated that; “In my career, I want leaders in the team. The representation for every player and in every time in the season there is the capacity to do that. Maybe there will be more ­leaders in the team to show this ­captaincy, not just in […]

Arsenal struggle to be superior… Positives, Needs and Hopes

Ok, I’m being spoilt. Arsenal have won yet again and it’s not quite enough. Perhaps I speak for many when I say that we are ok with it but we are a little worried. Worried that good results with only good performances for 30-50% of the game may be a habit that won’t last. The […]

A clean sheet at LAST…..We started poor but stuck Everton in Toffee….

Arsenal 2-0 Everton   A clean sheet at last.   Everton got stuck in Toffee, in the end….. Everton’s nickname is the Toffeemen since that part of Merseyside was noted for its toffee production.

Arsenal 2-0 Everton: Gunners stick it to Toffees, but defense remains a sore point

Perhaps ironic given our flaws under Arsene Wenger, whose defense was as rag-tag as it gets in the last few seasons. With the Frenchman I guess I just gave up at some point. I realised Wenger was unlikely to […]

Dodgy distribution again

If Emery wants to persist this way surely Holding and Leno can’t do worse than Sokratis and Cech?

The Gunners notched their first away win this season, and made it two league wins on the trot in the process, but I think it will be fair to say the manner of the win raised more questions than it answered. Let’s get straight to it. Cech’s distribution is abysmal – again While it’s clear […]

A Forgivably Tough Start For Emery – But The Gloves Come Off On Saturday

I hate losing and I’m disappointed by every defeat that Arsenal suffers. However, I wasn’t angry or surprised by our defeat against the current league champions, Manchester City, in our opening game. They are a class above us and everyone else domestically. In saying that, like many others, I expect Liverpool to get much closer […]
