Damned if they do, damned if they don’t – Arsenal dodge tricky West Brom banana skin [WBA 0-6 ARS]

In what seems at the eye of a very turbulent, virulent storm the Arsenal had a chance to potentially break a run of goalless winless games with their Carabao third round tie against West Brom.

Arsenal loans Ainsley Maitland Niles to West Brom: shrewd business or tragic misstep? You decide…

  So, Transfer Deadline Day passed through with not too many fireworks from the Arsenal camp. Most of the touted departures happened except maybe for Reiss Nelson. The most interesting departure to me wasn’t really about the player but the choice of club for Ainsley Maitland-Niles. West Bromwich Albion? I mean no disrespect to […]

After being knocked out of the Carabao Cup in last night’s dismal display against League Cup bullies, Manchester City, Arteta and his bruised Arsenal team will have to pick themselves and dust themselves off for a brutal festive season and a tough start to 2021.

Arsenal 2-0 West Brom: Gunners ride their luck to hold off plucky West Brom (Review)

Arsenal 2-0 WBA Emirates Stadium 25th September 2017 – Premier League A reasonable performance tonight from Arsenal. WBA had some good chances in the first-half, and looked pretty dangerous in parts.

Back to 4231 and Giroud to hit his Ton as the The Baggies visit The Emirates

Howdy. We face West Brom today, in what will round off gameweek 6. This fixture marks the beginning of an easier 5-match run for the Gunners: after the Baggies we face Brighton, Watford, Everton and Swansea.

Wenger backs his players but they are not backing him – #WBAvAFC

The feeling that something has gone so badly wrong it’s beyond repair has haunted me for a while now. Normally, after Arsenal lose a couple of games, or lose just one but in spectacular fashion, they walk the walk in the next game or two and bounce back. Now they don’t. The problem goes further: […]

West Brom vs AFC

‘If Ox is passed fit he starts centrally over Ramsey’ – Who’d have thought it heh? #WBAvAFC

Howdy. It’s the West Bromwich Albion enigma the Gunners have to crack today and, taking into account our poor recent form and the fact Pulis is in charge of the Baggies, this is not going to be a walk in the park. Team news update Arsene Wenger faces an unenviable task of shaking the current […]
