Season Review: The Conductor and His Part-time Rock Band [Positives Needs & Hopes]

The Conductor and his part time Rock Band POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES End of season review   This is a tale of the unnecessary. There once was a really good music teacher. He had been given the opportunity to work with a fairly talented but unbalanced rock band called ‘Unexpected.’ The music teacher had taken […]

Does a New Deal for Smith-Rowe necessarily mean No move for Buendia?

It would be fair to say that Arsenal fans are considerably more ‘glass half full’ than they were at the start of this winter transfer window, but they will still be looking to the club to add quality to the squad from the stronger position in which they now find themselves. Of course, having kept […]

ARS 0-0 CRY When your best isn’t good enough, sometimes the solution is the winner. [Positive Needs & Hopes]

Sometimes the Solution is the Winner POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES So, we didn’t get 3 points but….. what did we get? We got returning players, Partey in particular. We got a better performance from our central midfielders. Our backline looked solid and we defended against two of the trickiest players in the league, admirably. A […]

Mikel-Arteta-1024x677-1

A Transfer window to ensure the right experience to blend with the Best Arsenal Youth since George Graham inherited in 1986.

It is ‘that’ time of year again, crazy season, the January Transfer Window. Because of the unusual end to last season and the consequent later summer window we find ourselves back here swiftly. The mid-season opportunity to strengthen is of course, always trickier for clubs, with value harder to find and for Arsenal, Edu and […]

It’s time to get in the ambulance The Positives, Needs and Hopes will return but I don’t think they are relevant today. I think this is more relevant… Over the last few years I’ve been avoiding the doctor. I didn’t feel right and knew I needed to go but fear and the hope for a […]

No-one loves a Dicteta – how Arteta’s Arsenal turned 180 in 90 – and how to fix it [Positive Needs & Hopes]

180 in 90 POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES Ninety days ago Arsenal were offering an overdose of optimism. We’d healed so much so quickly. The defensive structure which needed a doctor in 2007 was almost fully healed. The accountability which hadn’t been present for about the same amount of time seemed to be reinstated. The opportunity […]

Coutinho or Buendia: Detailed breakdown of which creator should replace Ozil at Arsenal

Arsenal’s sported their new home kit for the first time this season in the 3-2 win over Watford on Sunday. The chevron-laden red and white strip had been launched earlier last week under slightly strange circumstances.

Ozil, Lacazette, Mkhitaryan and Guendouzi OUT with Beundia, Van de Beek, Edouard and Partey IN – Squad Rebuild Part 2

With part one addressing the defensive issues, I now look at how we can improve our midfield and attacking options by bringing in players who provide quality and versatility. Midfield Over the last 10 years, this has to be the poorest midfield options available. Arteta’s recent comments suggested to me he’s looking to transition to […]
