Burnley preview: No room for complacency

Premier League action today as we travel to face Burnley at Turf Moor. The form of both team is fairly contrasting. The home side have won just 2 of the their last 17 games in all competitions; Arsenal have only failed to win 2 of their last 17, with 15

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

When proud Empire Adventurer Sir Edmund Hillary, and his able assistant and rope carrier Mr. Norgay, reached the summit of Extended Britain’s highest mountain, Everest, the delight could not have been matched by the elation experienced by Arsenal’s fine players this weekend last when they vanquished not only England’s greatest

Injuries, or lack of; daft questions + Arsecast 347

I watched Arsene Wenger’s press conference yesterday, as I do most weeks, and it was nice to see him talk about players back from injury. He confirmed that Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Debuchy, Jack Wilshere and even Abou Diaby were fit and available this weekend. Obviously it gives him something of

DM. Dee, em. Deeeee M. Dee-M. D-Emmmmm.

The resurrection of Francis Coquelin has been one of the revelations of 2014-15, not just for Arsenal, but for the Premier League. Rarely does a player rise from a Championship outpost such as Charlton Athletic on loan to become one of the most important components of a top Premier League

Bellerin, Bellerout, shake it all about

Good morning to you. My routine for the last 10 years, at least, has always been the same. Wake up, make coffee, ‘do’ Arseblog. Over the years that has changed slightly, but not much. Part of that morning routine now involves checking in over at Arseblog News to see what

Tactics column: Arsenal’s high press, Coquelin hits

After fifteen intoxicating first-half minutes, everybody in the ground was left wondering how Arsenal weren’t ahead. Later, those doubts were erased as Hector Bellerin curled home to spark a three-goal first-half salvo for Arsenal, and pave the way for an excellent 4-1 win. But there comes a caveat. Because while

Wilshere facing a big challenge on return to fitness

Morning all. There was some U21 action of interest last night as we beat Stoke 4-1 at the Emirates. Jack Wilshere and Serge Gnabry played the full game, Mikel Arteta for an hour, and there was 70+ minutes from Abou Diaby. A hat-trick from young striker Alex Iwobi helped Steve

We won’t catch Chelsea but there’s much to be positive about

So, we stay in second place in the Premier League after Man City got beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace last night. Pellegrini is so getting fired in the summer, and they’re an absolute shambles of a team right now. I didn’t see the game so can’t really comment on it
