January transfer window – are our hopes too high?

We’re all eagerly awaiting top players in the window.     We need players. Don’t get me wrong. But what players will we get? More to the point, the current window will see us not get the players we need. This may seem pessimistic – but whilst we do need top players we won’t necessarily […]

The Cunning Plan for Anfield backfired but at least we had a Plan. – Review & Player Ratings

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal Premier League review     I’m not sure what to think here. Yes, it was another defeat at Anfield. It’s been a ground for us, over the past several decades, of immense highs and woeful lows. This was a low, but not as bad as last season’s 5-1 battering, or the 4-0 […]

Another 9/10 from Koscielny and one end and Laca at the other sees Arsenal brush aside a limp Napoli

Napoli 0-1 Arsenal – Europa League QF Second Leg (0-3 agg.)       It took a beauty from Lacazette to secure an excellent win in the San Paolo stadium. Napoli was anticipated to be strong, forward, and pressing, as they needed to be. But they weren’t. If anything, I was surprised at how limp […]

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 […]

Arsenal vs. Stade Rennais  – Europa League preview (1-3 agg)     After the United win, we have another tough task in this 2nd leg of the Round of 16. Rennes bossed us up at their place, though their efforts were boosted by our failings. Some good news here is that Lacazette is available, as […]

Emery Vindicated as Monreal, Mkhi, Sokratis, Monreal and Leno are NLD Heroes

What is the definition of ‘cruelty?’ I am too bummed to find out but it feels like it should be that game. Rather than whine about an offside goal I want to acknowledge that Arsenal had some players that played like real heroes today and were possibly a penalty kick away from being legends. I […]

Can you name all of Arsenal’s Spanish Stars since Reyes became an Invincible?

Given the nationality of our head coach, Mr.Emery, I wanted to pick out some of the most noted Spanish players in our club’s history. Denis Suarez, whilst only a loan signing, also adds to the Spanish vibe we have currently. So who else from Spain has either helped us or even hindered us, over the […]

Player Ratings see Iwobi the Star Man as Arsenal edge the Herbert Chapman Derby

The Herbert Chapman derby, as it were, ended in an Arsenal win. The game perhaps wasn’t the best, but I’m sure Mr Chapman is looking down and happy to see both of his prodigy performing in the top division. His Yorkshire former club is certainly going down this season – though on this showing they […]

Still no room for Ramsey and Ozil- West Ham United vs. Arsenal Preview

West Ham United vs. Arsenal   Premier League preview     We travel across London to the London Stadium near Stratford, for the first of two London games this week. West Ham was unlucky not to get something from the game at our place in September. We won 3-1, but this scoreline flattered us to […]

Missing Key Defenders or just poor defending? Report and Player Ratings SFC3AFC2

Our supposed bad record at the St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton is continuing, since we lost this game 3-2. The new Southampton manager, Ralph Hassenhutl, managed to get the win here, and in his first home game. As for us, it was in essence more of the same. We played well in parts, but weak […]
