Saturday round-up: Giroud’s hurt, so’s Wilshere (again)

Morning all. A quick Saturday round-up for you, starting with Olivier Giroud who says he’s embarrassed and hurt by what happened on Wednesday night. The striker had what can only be described as a nightmare night, and says he understands why he was taken off on the hour mark (although

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

One of England’s finest traditional Jazz bands, Mr. Coverdale and his White Snakes, used to frequent the concert halls of London town back in the twenties. Ah! Those were the days. Everyone properly attired in white tie and completely banjaxed to Hades on 100% pure cocaine. Wonderful days. Anyhow, Mr.

Arseblog is 13 + Arsecast 342

One of my recurring dreams is being a DJ and not being able to find the next record to put on. Obviously I’m re-living all the times that nearly happened to me as in my previous career in nightclubs and on the radio. So I felt annoyed in my dream

The European cannon is(n’t) here

The Champions League returned to North London this week after the winter sabbatical we were back down to the bare knuckle business of knockout football, albeit with our noses bloodied and our glass jaw exposed. Arsenal under the lights, the ear splitting falsetto of the theme tune before kickoff, the

Arsenal 1-3 Monaco: another European debacle

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video We’ve had some inauspicious nights in Europe before, but last night is surely up there with the most disappointing and dispiriting of them all. Anyone who thought Monaco were going to be an easy touch obviously wasn’t paying attention

Monaco preview + some WC 2022 thoughts

As I wrote yesterday it’s time to make some progress in the Champions League, and tonight’s clash with Monaco is a chance to put ourselves in a good position ahead of the second-leg in a few weeks time. The stuff about Arsene Wenger facing his old club is a nice

Nacho chips in with something extra

With the anticipated departures of Bacary Sagna and Thomas Vermaelen, Arsenal went into last summer in need of two centre backs. As Calum Chambers’ signing was the only one made in the area, they started the season with just three – one of whom was returning late after winning the

Time to make some European progress

The last time Arsenal went beyond the round of 16 in the Champions League was in 2009/10 when we lost our first leg game to Porto 2-1 – memorable for a Lukas Fabianski performance that was straight from the draw marked ‘WTF?!’. However, a hat-trick from The Greatest Striker That

Weekend thoughts + striker in Giroud health

Morning all, welcome to a brand new week. The rest of the weekend’s results didn’t play out quite as nicely as they might have. Although Sp*rs dropped two points it really should have been three as they came back from 2-0 down against West Ham, while Liverpool’s good form continued

Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal: Three points, fine margins

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video While I’m always happiest when we play well and win, I’m very much a fan of winning regardless of how we play. That’s not to say we were abject yesterday by any means, but I think we have to
