Right then, it’s West Ham tonight, a game which was scheduled for December 26th but which fell foul of a tube strike. It’s the game in hand we have over the teams above us, it provides a chance to close the gap and to get our first win of January

Crisis schmisis blisis isis danger zone

It’s -5 here this morning. I’m sure there’s a metaphor to be made about the cold, lifeless heart of Arsenal, or something, but I can’t be arsed. I just wish I had boiling hot Bovril instead of blood. Mmmm, beefy. We have West Ham tomorrow with talk of a ‘crisis

Tactics: Chelsea’s fantastic three expose Arsenal’s 4-2-3-1

They say that all formations are neutral; it’s their application which decides their failures and success. Both Chelsea and Arsenal essentially played a 4-2-3-1 on Sunday but it was Arsenal’s which was made to look inadequate and it wasn’t until they switched it in the second-half, playing with one holding

Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal: paucity of options a problem again

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video So, it’s 1 point from 9 in January as a dismal first half, coupled with some dodgy refereeing and a bit of Chelsea cheating, cost us yesterday’s game. The fact that the level of Arsenal’s performance can fluctuate so

Chelsea preview: pick up where we left off

For a big game, and a London derby, the build-up to this game has been surprisingly low key. Chelsea fans are too busy hating Rafa Benitez to make noise about anything else, while from our point of view we’ve had the twin distractions of Theo Walcott signing a new deal

Walcott signs, now the pressure’s on :: + Coquelin and Diaby

So, after over 18 months of refusing to sign a new contract, Theo Walcott has put pen to paper and committed his future to Arsenal. Good, because it means that a tedious, drawn-out saga is over. Good, because Arsenal have secured the future of a player who, while still far

Where do stories come from? + Arsecast 263

Morning all, it’s a pretty miserable one here in Dublin. Bits and pieces going on as we prepare for a big, big game on Sunday against Chelsea. Arsene’s press conference took place yesterday and it was interesting, really interesting, to see how stories are created. You might wake up and

Wilshere changes the game and changes the game

As with most Champions League dwelling clubs, we Arsenal fans have been spoiled over the years by the quality of player we have borne witness to. There’s a saying that the sun shines on a dog’s arse once a day. Even the most average player can produce a high level

Arsenal 1-0 Swansea: Wilshere makes the difference

Match report – Player ratings – Video When Cesc Fabregas left Arsenal, he said something on his Twitter account about how Arsenal fans shouldn’t be too worried because we had the best English midfielder around in Jack Wilshere. The former captain wasn’t to know that Jack would miss an entire
