Leicester 3-0 Arsenal: Were Summer transfer decisions told in Spring?! [Positive Needs & Hopes]

WERE SUMMER DECISIONS TOLD IN SPRING? Positives, Needs and Hopes Were Summer transfer decisions told to the players in Spring? This is an educated guess, not knowledge…… What happened after the Napoli tie? Such an impressive result against a very good opponent and then a total 3 game collapse. I don’t think it’s too far […]

Leicester City 3-0 Arsenal – Woeful Gunners Wengered by Foxes in hunt for Top 4 [with Player Ratings]

Out-Foxed at the King Power     This was a new low. And I feel it was coming from the off. The team selection was fair, in terms of the player quality. It was seemingly a 442 we were playing, but then from the off, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers got his players up for it, […]

Wolves 3-1 Arsenal: Who stole the jumpers?! Boring and bad – Gunners roll over for Wolves [Positive Needs & Hopes]

‘WHO STOLE THE JUMPERS?’ Positives, Needs and Hopes   One of Unai Emery’s very first soundbites was, “We want to be protagonists!” I’m glad he wants to be as all fans love attacking football but we are protagonists only every once in a while. Personally, I would not have made this statement without the individual […]

Watford 0-1 Arsenal: 3 points without pressing, impressing or showing any cojones – we’ll take that! [Positive Needs & Hopes]

‘4 points, 2 points or none’ POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES I have no interest in working at FIFA. Well, I might take a medium sized bung then take a sabbatical to Montego Bay for 30 years! I also don’t think that they should change the 3 points for a win system. It’s fine. When I […]

Emery’s Selection was wrong but his players let him down as Player Ratings will testify

  We got stuck in Everton toffee today. And this isn’t the best for our top four hopes – however, I believe we can still get top four. However, this game wasn’t really the best, and Everton outmuscled, outfought, and bullied us. Without disrespecting our previous manager, this was a performance reminiscent of the latter […]

Leno the Star Man as Ramsey signs off from NLD Duties in Style – Impressions and Player Ratings from NLD.

Them 1-1 Us North London Derby review   So, we haven’t lost to them in the league this season. But I have some mixed feelings on this game. Yes, we didn’t lose. But let’s be real – we should have won this game. Tottenham, with their lauded and trophyless manager, wasn’t up to it. Alli […]

Arsenal barely take three points from lowly Terriers under the watchful eye of The Worrier – Match Review [Positive Needs 7 Hopes]

Intensity or Exhaustion… The clear Arsenal style POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES That was absolutely maddening. Almost embarrassing. I’ll get on to that (see first point in ‘NEEDS section), but for now I want to talk about a theme that I see. There has been much talk recently about what Emery’s style is. Almost all of […]

Keep, Discard, Nurture? Arsenal’s squad tagged for January 2019 transfer cull

The hot news of late is that we are in for Barcelona’s Denis Suarez and even Benetia. But then whilst the club in some part can be commended for its part in getting in transfers, if we analyse the squad, are there players whom we should either: Keep Discard Nurture   It’s true that the […]

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal – Emery tweaks, Defence Leaks, Future’s Bleak? (Review + Player Ratings)

Did Emery replace our defence with a sieve?     This may surprise some, but I think our display wasn’t all bad at Anfield. This ground is an odd one for us – we’ve had some immense highs (1989) and deep lows. This has to go along with the lows. We created chances in some […]
