The morning after the night before is usually a phrase related to having consumed a tad too much alcohol, but most Arsenal fans will relate today, whether they drank through Thursday night’s disappointment or not.

Nketiah and The Lost Puppy: Something’s broken at Arsenal and they better fix it fast [SOU 1-0 ARS]

Somebody at Arsenal has lost their puppy.  The puppy has been kidnapped and sadness spread around the squad.  Results aside, there seems to be a sadness. A stream of sadness that I have felt watching Arsenal the last three games. Admittedly, I am watching these games on the television screen and cannot see everybody all […]

No-show Arsenal doubles down on poor Palace performance – but CL spot still possible [ARS 1-2 BHA]

The game didn’t start at 4:05pm POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES It’s not too late. It seems like it is, but it’s not. The situation and our push for Champions League football is still possible even though it seems like we are throwing it away. What has been too late however, is how our coach and […]

No Intensity at the Beach: sluggish and sheepish Arsenal surrender to Burnley

No Intensity at the Beach This opening thought is probably utter nonsense. It is not reactionary though as I’ve waited half a day to process what I saw at the Emirates yesterday. Trying to make sense of the attitude towards the game is what rattled me as much as the unexpected scoreline. My wife and […]

3D day for Arteta’s Arsenal at Anfield as Determination, Discipline and Direction shut out Liverpool

A day for Arteta This isn’t just good form you know. Step back for a minute and admire this new team. That performance last night wasn’t just dogged. You can’t play Liverpool at Anfield, one of the best teams in world football, and shut them out with 10 men with no shots on target if […]

Mikel Arteta: The Soul to Success

While wallowing in the heartbreak from the defeat to Manchester City, I decided to distract myself by picking up a book and reading Phil Jackson’s Eleven Rings: The Soul to Success. For those unfamiliar with Phil Jackson, he holds the NBA record for the most NBA championships as a player and coach – famously known […]

The Progression of Granit Xhaka’s role within Mikel Arteta’s system – In possession, high press and turnovers…

Gidday fellas! Round 2 for me on Gunners Town with a piece on Granit Xhaka after an absolute belter of a match for the Arsenal against City at the Emirates. If you were at the game, cheers to you. What a cracker of an atmosphere. The fans nailed the support for our young lads in […]

Big fat respect points: Arsenal’s bright future shines beyond controversy [Ars 1-2 MCI]

Big fat respect points POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES There are certain games that are even more important than the points and performance. New Year’s Day, the only game on TV in the world, the beginning of the transfer window and a chance to confirm the rumor that you are good. If you aren’t an Arsenal […]

Calling Back The Bank: Arsenal’s youngsters rise in value as they shine against Leeds [LEE 1-4 ARS]

Calling back the Bank POSITIVES, NEEDS and HOPES Rewind back to August. There were concerns everywhere but arguably the greatest concern was where the goals were going to come from.
