Tavares and Martinelli took the chance to impress Arteta, as Partey improved match fitness

Well it was surprising to learn that the Carabao Third round tie against AFC Wimbledon wasn’t televised and available anywhere. I cannot recall the last time this was the case; understandably this news didn’t go down well with many supporters who don’t have the opportunity to view Arsenal games without access to streams and television […]

Lokonga to get the nod to partner Partey at Turf Moor and other Arteta decisions to make

So next up for the Gunners is what can be deemed a difficult trip to Burnley. A team that fits the template perfectly for Arsenal kryptonite over the years. A big strong physical side with the potential to disrupt and spoil any attempts at any fancy football whilst giving the opposition defence no easy ride. […]

Can Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang return to his best this season?

With just ten Premier League goals, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a long way off from his best form last season due to various factors, including injuries and off-field problems. The Gunners only finished eighth last season following a series of underwhelming performances and it’s surely no coincidence that Arsenal’s poor campaign was linked to the decline in the Gabon international’s […]

Sliding Door Moment? – When Chelsea swapped Lampard for Tuchel and Arsenal backed Arteta

Boxing Day 2020, one of the highlights of last season. You certainly remember that day, the gloomy atmosphere and the awkward feeling that another manager would get the sack after the final whistle. Mikel Arteta arrived to that crucial game on the back of a terrible spell of zero wins in seven Premier League games […]

It’s 3421 to beat Chelsea with Saka and Maitland Niles as Wing-backs

Since the opening day defeat, given the quality of the opposition, in the next 2 matches for Arsenal, I have been pondering whether Arteta might opt for the comfort of three at the back for the Chelsea match. Of course, he has done so before, matched up his West London rivals and with some degree […]

Why in 21/22 Emile Smith Rowe will be the Croydon Nasri and not the Croydon De Bruyne

As we approach the new 21/22 campaign, as Arsenal supporters, we are still yet to discover which player will arrive to take some of the creative burden from the young shoulders of Saka and Smith-Rowe. Will it be Maddison, will it be Odegaard, or Aouar, or even another left field suggestion such as Renato Sanches? […]

A Strong well argued case made for Odegaard over Maddison

To be or not to be, that’s the question ….. Sorry this is not Shakespeare reincarnated. But it wouldn’t be too far off to allude to the question of which central attacking midfielder Arsenal should go for, to the dilemma of Hamlet in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy –Hamlet.  It is clear, at least going by rumors […]

A Blueprint for Arsenal’s 2021/22 Summer Rebuild – Part Two

The second step to any successful rebuild is identifying the areas of the squad that need improving and bringing in the correct personnel in order to do so. For Arsenal, this hasn’t always been straight forward, for a number of reasons. Although large sums have been spent, investment has often been put into positions that […]

Arsenal should focus on what they have rather than what they could have

As the summer transfer window heats up, the inevitable rumour mill begins to spin. Like every Premier League club, Arsenal must deal with the gossip about who may come to the Emirates and who may leave. For fans, the yo-yo effect is exciting, if not a little old. We love the idea of world-class players […]

Emile Smith Rowe is not for sale. Or is he?

There’s something about him that I cannot quite explain.While Bukayo Saka steals the show with his flashy runs and moments of magic, another youngster is quietly stamping his mark on the team.Since his introduction to the starting XI against Chelsea last winter, Emile Smith Rowe has been a mainstay for Mikel Arteta and one of […]
