Salah-Eddine Oulad to Make Debut Against Sunderland?

Salah-Eddine Oulad to Make Debut Against Sunderland? It’s always better to train a player ‘in-house’ instead of bringing one in from the outside. The January transfer window is, indeed, a casino, with no way to predict how well the incoming player will do, how quickly he will adapt to playing at the Emirates Stadium. Those […]

Brady Birthday Tribute – ‘Brady Brady’ Born is the King of Highbury

All aboard the time machine. I’ve set the dial back to 1973 for this week’s Highbury Hero. To the time when an Irish wizard with a left foot like a wand burst onto the scene and became one of the finest players ever to pull on an Arsenal shirt. Worshipped by the Arsenal fans, including […]

Alexis, the Beneficiary of an Ozil and Xhaka Passing Masterclass – #AFC2SFC0

Another win, another home clean sheet. I think I can get used to that. Pity the season is almost over, we’ve just about found our groove. West Brom didn’t do us any favours at the Etihad, so Man City are basically out of reach. There are five goals between the teams, so we’ll need to […]

Lucky Charm Giroud to start and bring up his Century against the Unlucky Black Cats

So, West Ham didn’t do us any favours on Sunday and were comprehensively thrashed by Liverpool. Lazy bastards. Probably still hold a grudge for the two beatings we dished out to them. In all honesty though, this situation is ours fault, and ours alone. Just think about it: of the 36 games we’ve dropped points […]

Here ‘s to you Ollie Giroud – Sunderland 1- Na Na Na ‘NA’rsenal 4

When Duncan Watmore went down inside our box I sank in my chair. It looked all set up to become one of those days. Good pressure and slick passing, a goal to show for our trouble, loads of chances created, then one mistake puts paid to everything good. Usually it’s also the first shot on […]

Is Jack Back to Grand Slam Fat Sam? – Sunderland v Arsenal

Howdy. We play Sunderland today and in order to regain our top 3 spot we need a win. However it most likely won’t be a straightforward game, seeing as Sunderland face an uphill battle for survival and Newcastle’s point at Anfield did little to alleviate the Black Cats’ fears. Head-to-head We have a pretty good […]

Wenger Ranieri

Wenger can learn from Ranieri; will Afobe come back to bite us?

. Ranieri at the Lane minutes after his team have conceded a penalty on a controversial decision by the referee “If the referee gives the penalty then it is a penalty” Excellent. Love it. Why can’t Wenger do the same? Why does he have to gesticulate on the touchline when decisions go against us and […]

Arsenal vs Sunderland

Can Wenger afford to risk resting Ozil v Black Cats? For who?

Howdy. We start our FA Cup defense on Saturday by hosting Sunderland in the 3rd round. Once again we play a Premier League side, having played Hull City last year and Spurs before that – in fact, I don’t remember when was the last time we played a lower-league opposition in the 3rd round, but […]

The team may have to pick itself today but a balance maybe founded in adversity – Arsenal v Sunderland Preview

  Howdy. It’s been a gloomy couple of days for the Arsenal faithful. Earlier in the week Guardian reported Cazorla suffered knee ligament damage, which is likely to keep our ambidextrous regista sidelined for around three months. This news, coupled with a long-term injury to Coquelin, means our central midfield pairing of choice for almost […]

Lee Cattermole - The Master Of Suspension

Not our Club. Not our problem: 2014/15’s Relegation Dodgers.
