Arsenal vs Wigan Athletic FA Cup Preview

It’s what we have been yearning for all these years, it’s so near that we can feel it and yet so far that we risk losing it. The trepidation has set in, I am starting to waffle as a result. I certainly hope Arsenal don’t approach the game with any sort of apprehension or anxiety, it is undoubtedly our biggest game ... Read More »

Everton vs Arsenal Tactical Analysis

For all of Everton’s passionate, sublime performance and our insipidness, it was Roberto Martinez’s tactical tweak that caught Arsenal unguarded. Arsene Wenger doesn’t change his approach depending on teams and it is always the same. Just a few instructions and his team’s supposed superiority will win them the game. Martinez employed a false nine system with Naismith in the middle ... Read More »

Everton vs Arsenal Match Report

Arsenal succumbed to yet another routine(yes routine)away defeat to a tophalf side. Everton fully deserved the win and Arsene Wenger can’t have any complaints about the result. His side were completely outplayed, outfought and outmanoeuvred by a sprightly Everton side that were spurred on by a vociferous home support. The Toffees close the gap on Arsenal to a point with ...

Everton vs Arsenal Preview

Yes it’s official we are embroiled in yet another scramble for champions league spots. It ain’t nail biting yet but a win over Everton would give us that little bit of confidence going into the FA cup semis.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Report

Arsenal fought back to earn a creditable 1-1 draw with ManchesterCity and salvaged some pride at the end of a terrible week.

Arsenal v Man City: Preview

I got to admit I am a bit scared ahead of our game against Mancity. City are in irrepressible form and we are in tatters. Hardly the ideal preparation for the game against the title favorites but we can do nothing about it and just hope that Hart gets his foot stuck in the Earth, Kompany headbutts Demichelis for allowing ...

Arsenal vs Swansea Match Report

It doesn’t get any worse does it, coming back from a goal down to lead and concede the freakish of goals in stoppage time. Everything is going against Arsenal at the moment and these aren’t happy times to be a Gunner. The 2-2 draw with Swansea means that the title is gone and it does look like another dogfight for ...

Arsenal vs Swansea Preview

It has been all too familiar, losing heavily to a title rival away from home, play tentatively and cautiously the next game and get our shape back (United home, Chelsea home). But that shouldn’t be the case when the Swans make the trip from Wales to the Capital. The title is out of our hands but let’s give it a ... Read More »

Chelsea 6 v 0 Arsenal: player ratings

Terrible performance for Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game on the bench. Every Arsenal player deserves to sit in the corner and look down for a whole night. Wojciech Szczesny | 1.0: Should have done better. Bacary Sagna | 1.0: We were destroyed from every part of the pitch. Bac didn’t excel in either of positions he played today. Per Mertesacker | 1.5: ... Read More »

Chelsea 6 v 0 Arsenal Match Report

Arsenal players demonstrated out to the rest of the world with panache how not to celebrate your legendary manager’s landmark game. It’s becoming something of a habit this season, concede first, surrender hands down, shoot yourself in the foot, dig a hole for yourself and plummet into the molten core of the earth. That was the best I could do ... Read More »

Chelsea v Arsenal Preview

Stamford Bridge will have its true honour when it hosts Arsene Wenger’s landmark 1000th game in charge of Arsenal.  Wenger described the game as Arsenal’s ‘Game of the season’ and he is right.

Bayern v Arsenal Tactical Analysis

One of the alterations Pep Guardiola engineered on Bayern Munich is their intense pressing. The pressing tactic worked wonders for him at Barcelona and it is understandable that he wants to implement that at Bayern. Pressing teams high up the pitch not only gives you chance to dispossess your opponents in dangerous areas but it also disrupts the rhythm of ... Read More »

Bayern v Arsenal Match Report

Arsenal exited the Champions league after they drew 1-1at the AllianzArena.
