This piece is part of a larger work on Unai Emery – soon to be published in its entirety here on Gunners Town. Arsenal’s Champions League aspirations went up in flames. Torched by Wilfred Zaha, the dynamic forward brushed by Shkodran Mustafi with ease. As Zaha sped by, he scored his side’s second goal. On […]

Your votes were cast, the results are in: here’s the Arsenal Emirates Era XI you picked

  Boredom, eh? Eleven days ago I randomly launched a series of polls to find out who are your favorite players to have played at the Emirates Stadium, by position. The ground rules I imagined were quite easy: Players must have played at least two full seasons at the Emirates Stadium Players are selected on […]

Nine Arsenal Thoughts on the Whys, Whens, Whos, Wills and Hows of Summer’s Silly Season

‘Nine Arsenal Thoughts’ By Mike McDonald 1) Why are Arsenal taking so long to buy players this summer? I think that this has everything to do with their pursuit of Zaha, for two good reasons. Firstly, I think that we are not wanting to purchase other players until we know how much we have to […]

It’s 2018 FFS

It is 2018, Snowflake. Hi @Nacho-Monreal. My 6 year old son asked me, why you are called Nacho and do you promote unhealthy salted snacks. I said I don’t know and I don’t know. Maybe you should change you name to ‘Vegan Chia and Quinoa Flakes Monreal’. It is 2018, after all. Hi @AlexLacazette. My […]

Positives, Needs and Hopes from AFC v WHU – Decisive substitutions prove Emery’s biggest victory so far

Resurgent Gunners Need to Seal The Deal Against Wounded Milanimal

Do Arsenal actually still have any ‘Bouncebackability’? – AFC v MCFC II

Probably the single thing that sums up the current situation at Arsenal best is that I’m hoping for our game today to be called off due to weather conditions in London. It’ll likely go ahead and I’ll have to write about another defeat come Friday. Even the fact we are playing at home does little […]

So come on you Gunners. Make us all proud again – Carabao Cup final preview

It’s amazing to think that, despite the atrocious season we are having, some saving grace is still possible. Yet, going into today’s game, it’s exactly where we are. While the Europa League as a possible scalp for Arsene Wenger’s side remains a remote possibility for now, the League Cup final can provide some balm for […]
