Monreal back to the left with Koscielny returning and Rob Holding his place for Stoke

To the Mordor we go today, and it’s fair to say I’d prefer most other places to Stoke at a crucial time like this. But beggars can’t be choosers. A win will put us within a point of Liverpool, who visit the Hammers on Sunday, heaping pressure in Klopp’s men to perform. I do not […]

Southampton 0-2 Arsenal: Alexis finds his spark to keep the Gunners’ top 4 fire burning

I must admit I was very worried before the game yesterday. St. Mary’s has become a hard place to visit in recent seasons. Southampton have also been a problem at the Emirates – our two last League Cup exits are a testament to that. However what we witnessed was a mature performance from an Arsenal […]

The Ox’s Star is in the Ascendancy and Ramsey’s Rising again as Gunners Blow Jose Away

It’s amazing how much of a difference one win can make. Suddenly the season doesn’t look beyond salvation, the players don’t look beyond caring and the formation doesn’t look like a stop-gap solution. However what I think made this win stand out was: a) we’ve beaten a top six side b) this side is spearheaded […]

Arsenal 0-2 Barcelona: valiant Gunners fall short once again

If you asked me to describe our yesterday’s performance in one word I would say “valiant”. It was a valiant effort from the Gunners for the entirety of the contest. That’s why the loss, especially by two goals, was so heartbreaking. We were more than equal to Barcelona for 70 minutes, then, clearly as was […]

It’s Time to Outfox the Foxes – Gooner’s Love Affair with ‘Le Coq’ to resume on Valentine’s Day

Howdy. Matchday №26 is looming large (in fact it’s already upon us at the time of me writing this), however, I think I won’t make a grave mistake by assuming most eyes will be fixed on Sunday’s fixtures and not so much on Saturday’s. It is understandable: the top 4 teams are playing one another […]

Sheffield Wednesday thoughts: young guns, old guns and useless guns

Before I say anything else, an important notice: I haven’t watched the game. So everything you are going to read is just my thoughts based on what I heard/read. Don’t expect a tactical breakdown from me. But you can bulk up on one right here. The decision not to watch the game was partly based […]

Arsenal 2-1 Everton: Gunners do the job for the third time inside a week

I’m writing this fresh from the most boring derby game I’ve seen this season: I’m talking about the Manchester derby. However, the goalless draw with two shots on target and two dangerous moments overall certainly has its joys. In this case, it allows the Gunners to go two points clear of United and level with […]

Ox in for Alexis to poke the Hornets’ nest? – Watford v Arsenal Preview

Howdy. It’s been quite some time since I last wrote, but a combination of an extremely tedious Interlull and my rather stressful two weeks at uni contributed to my total lack of inspiration. Glad to see the back of this fortnight. In what will be Arsenal’s first game in 13 days we face Watford away […]

It’s a Coq and Bull Story – Coquelin and Oxlade return to Bully Greeks

We face Olympiacos in the 2nd game of the group stages and, needless to say, this game is a must-win: “You have to win your home games if you want to qualify from the group stage, it is simple as that. We cannot afford to drop points now against anyone at home.” While I have […]
