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 […]

I was a bit surprised, because […]

Why Arsenal’s performance against West Ham epitomises where they stand under Arteta

The nature of Arsenal’s season was perfectly summed up by their showing at the London Stadium, as their combination of inconsistency and brilliance saw them come from three goals down to draw with West Ham. If ever there was a game that could highlight not only the progress Arsenal have made since the turn of […]

Arsenal don’t but Arteta does

Arsenal don’t but Arteta does POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES Mikel Arteta won’t feel like he walked away with a win yesterday. He didn’t. Yet, did he personally get a win? As the coach of the team he may never know or feel this personal victory but I’d imagine when he pauses he will realize, if […]
