Outside the Emirates the Gooners excel, while the Gunners fail within

I have been at an Arsenal match as accredited media before, but not at The Emirates, so last night was a first for me.

In Footballing Terms Arteta has decided to build a system around Aubameyang not Ozil – Simples!

So much has been written already about the Mesut Ozil situation,  much of it, agenda driven and most of it speculation. I can promise no agenda in my own views other than a footballing one.

Exclusive Scouting Interview on David Brooks – Should Arsenal challenge Man U and Leicester for the Creative Midfielder?

The transfer window officially opened last Monday, and as Mikel Arteta begins to make his plans for the future, one man who seems certain not to be a part of them is Mesut Ozil.

Could Said Benrahma be converted into Arteta’s Creative ‘8’ – Our New Santi?

I finished yesterday’s newspaper column, discussing what Arteta needs to revert to 433 next season, with an off-the-cuff suggestion of Said Benrahma. The reason I would describe the suggestion as off-the-cuff, or left field is because the article was considering the creative central player Arsenal need, and the Algerian, predominantly plays on the wing for […]
