Mistakes at both ends costly so far this season

Morning all. I watched Adrian Clarke’s ever-excellent ‘The Breakdown’ via the official site yesterday as he went back over the 0-0 draw with the Mugsmashers. One stat, or fact, stood out: Arsenal gave the ball away 20 times in our own half, with every single starting outfield player guilty at

Match report – Player ratings – By the numbers – Video If, in the few minutes before half-time, you’d offered me a draw I think I would have taken it. As it was in the end, there was frustration that we couldn’t find the breakthrough having dominated the second period

Liverpool preview: Time to get going at home again

Premier League action tonight as we take on Liverpool, looking to build on last week’s win over Crystal Palace. Not only that, we’re attempting to rediscover our mojo at the Emirates a little bit. On April 4th we hammered Liverpool 4-1, as goals from Ozil, Bellerin, Alexis and Giroud, made

Good morning. I did not arrive home until much a lot late last night and for this there can be only one person to blame: The Mugsmasher. Many years ago around this time, he was made a person by life and so it was that we celebrated this momentous occasion

On the search for a new striker

Morning, I had a lie-in until 9am, this is amazing. Who knew it was permitted to sleep this long into the day. I feel thoroughly decadent. We’ll start this morning with the manager’s thoughts on new arrivals as expressed at his press conference yesterday. It’s all quite familiar, he wants

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

What a curious week. As summer enters its Rooney period – that is not as good as it once was, and now bloated and ageing, with everyone wishing it would just put itself out of its misery soon – thoughts turn to the feverish pagan festival of Transferia, which is

Coq-less Crew

The modern obsession with transfers and the publications produce streams of transfer pornography mean that new signings are a topic never entirely removed from the conversational menu. But it feels as though Arsenal palates are being whetted by hors d’oeuvres from a different delicatessen of late. The issue of how

Should other clubs spending impact on ours?

It’s a Thursday before a Premier League weekend and it’s as quiet as quiet can be. We’ll get some team news later on. My predictions: Welbeck still out, Wilshere still out but close, Rosicky obviously still out, hopefully no ill-effects from the game against Palace last week. Everyone hoping to

Good morning, very quick one for you as I woke up late and I have about 1003 billion things to do today and I’m already behind schedule. It’s all about the loan players today. Adding to our list of players out on a temporary basis is Wellington Silva, who will
