DB’s Season Diary Week 2: Tales from Twitter Jail – A Week in the Life of an Incarcerated Arsenal Supporter

Welcome to week two of my Season Diary, which comes to you this week from The Twitter Penitentiary. My crime? A crime of passion. Well, that’s the way I see it, anyway. Anyone that knows me, knows how passionate I am about The Arsenal. I’m not sure exactly when this became something to be mocked […]

Dear England: love Saka all you like, but hands off – he’s ours!

To the shock of absolutely nobody, I didn’t want England to win the Euros. I make no apologies for it. It’s how football works. When Arsenal went out of the Europa League, I didn’t start supporting Man Utd because they got further. On the contrary, I put pretty much all the energy that was left […]

Arteta’s conventional 3-4-3 vs the hybrid 3-4-3

Arteta’s conventional 3-4-3 vs the hybrid 3-4-3 Guardiola, Klopp, Rodgers, Solskjaer, Bielsa and now Tuchel; a list of impressive managers who have come up short against Arteta. Whilst it’s been a horrendous season for the Spaniard, he once again showed his capabilities in setting a team up accordingly to nullify one of the top teams […]

Arsenal’s Miki takes on Pep’s City – who will step up to help the student school his master?

It’s only a few days before we kick off vs. Man City. And Guardiola and his former assistant Arteta will face off to boot. Let’s not forget that both Pep and Arteta had varying experiences during the pandemic/lockdown. Pep sadly lost his mother, and Mikel had the actual virus. We could also meet in the […]

Arsenal will be playing Manchester City on June 17 to kick off the Premier League’s frantic attempt to complete the 2019/20 season before August 2nd. Manchester City will host Arsenal at a neutral venue – in all likelihood one of these stadiums supposedly in contention: Brighton (The Amex), Southampton (St. Mary’s), West Ham (London Stadium), […]

Arsenal Firing Under Arteta

It has certainly been a season for upheaval for Arsenal and although the decision to sack Unai Emery can be viewed as somewhat harsh, the recent evidence under his replacement is starting to look rather impressive. That’s because, under the stewardship of Mikel Arteta, the Gunners seem to be firing once again and although this […]

Title race views – City retention or a new Scouse Red dawn?

Whilst our good friends are in third place, I think it’s unrealistic that they will win the league. This isn’t just rivalry talking but they’re not as good as Liverpool and City. Besides, Mr. Pochettino doesn’t like winning trophies, and they may not even open their ground this season. Liverpool hasn’t won the Premier League, […]

Top 6 Predictions: Premier League 2018/19 – if our writers are right, there are surprises in store!

I asked a few of the Gunners Town writers to give me their Top 6 predictions for the Premier League season 18/19. Obviously the transfer window is still open and things could change – but the one thing about the Premier League is that things are ALWAYS changing:. injuries, meltdowns, surprise losses… It’s a rollercoaster […]

A replacement of the Guardiola ilk wouldn't need Wenger to be upstairs

Does Arséne have Pep in his Step?

They hang over us like a cloak of impending doom: big games against our top-of-the-table rivals which have given Gooners little joy in recent years. Many cite the reasons for our shortcomings as style of play only being conducive to beating bottom half teams, lack of tactical flexibility, or even lack of overall quality/team depth. […]
