Swansea preview: Crucial. Vital. Essential

It seems odd that a third round FA Cup replay would be a game of such significance, but there’s no doubt that tonight is hugely important for Arsenal Football Club and for Arsene Wenger. Patchy league form sees us 21 points behind leaders Manchester United and the dream of another

Tactics Column: Arsenal’s system prone to individual errors

After the final whistle on Sunday, Jack Wilshere slumped to the ground; his back turned away from the customary congratulations and commiserations from losers and victors alike, and stared motionless into the various colours of the crowd. The moment was captured brilliantly by Daily Mail’s chief photographer, Andy Hooper. Arsenal

A morning visitor

What an odd morning. I woke up to the dog barking and somebody knocking on the back door. This is unusual for a couple of reasons because most of the time people who call knock at the front door and even if they do they don’t do so at 7am.

Arsenal 0-2 Man City: Gunners self-destruct again

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video So, January got off to a bad start, at least in terms of the Premier League, with a 1-1 draw against Southampton. And after the distraction of the FA Cup it has continued badly with 2-0 defeat to Man

Man City preview: here we go

Thankfully there’s a welcome distraction from introspective, shoe-gazing analysis as we have a game of something called ‘foot … ball’ this afternoon. It’s the start of an extremely hectic and difficult schedule and today is certainly going to be a tough encounter. The champions, Man City, come to town, and

Sad Saturday round-up

If this morning’s news were a Smiths album it’d be called Music for the Masochistic. Or Meat is Delicious (just to annoy Morrissey). Or something. Although it’s a fairly horrid place to start, Amy Lawrence details the phone call that led to the sale of Robin van Persie to Manchester

Early Man City news, Punxsutawney Phil + Arsecast 262

Morning all. It’s been a pretty quiet week but things should start ramping up a bit today as we start to look ahead to Sunday’s game against Manchester City. There’s some early team news, most of it good, but Olivier Giroud is a doubt having not trained all week because

Snarling short and curlies

In footballing circles, the Christmas period is always talked about as being unusually hectic. In reality, when one glimpses the eight games Arsenal (potentially) stand to play between January 1st and February 2nd, that impression retards somewhat. As international football has increasingly interfered with the schedule, there is rarely true

Gigantic ducks and a bewildered blogger

Note to self: change duck sound alarm on iPhone to something else. Pressing snooze and dreaming of gigantic football playing ducks is not as fun as it sounds. Lots of reaction to yesterday’s post about ticket prices. Whether you agreed, disagreed, or were somewhere in the middle, at the very
