Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

I conducted a poll upon the twitter this week, following the bittersweet win over Amphetamine Zagreb. The question asked was: Do Arsenal do things the easy way or the hard way? A fairly easy question to answer, even for the dunciest thicko or Spurs supporter. Yet astonishingly, 9% of you

Wenger on Alexis the lion and Magic Mesut + Arsecast 370

Tactics Column: Arsenal stutter to WBA defeat

Though Santi Cazorla ballooned a penalty late on to confirm a 2-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion, Arsenal fans worst fears were realised much earlier on, when Francis Coquelin departed the game in the first-half with a knee injury. With the score goalless, Arsenal played encouragingly though not spectacularly to

Coquelin’s absence should see Ramsey’s central return, but maybe not tonight

Champions League action this evening as we look to bounce back from three rather disappointing results in a row. The loss to West Brom was preceded by a draw with Sp*rs and that mauling in Munich, so it’s about time we got ourselves going again. A home game against opposition
