Aston Villa preview: find the defensive balance to spark the attack

The requirement today, obviously, is three Premier League points and a showing much more like the one against Man City than Dortmund. I suspect it might need some tinkering with the team, but the man over whom the largest question marks remain got the full backing of the manager yesterday.

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

A Great British morning to you all. For as the sun rose over misty loch and dewy dale, these kingdoms are well and truly united once more. By an overwhelming majority of 54% to 46%, Scotland has voted to stay under the yoke of the British Empire. This was the

Questions galore for Arsene Wenger + Arsecast 323

Morning all. Yesterday my phone started breaking right before my eyes. Firstly, the speaker stopped working so I can’t hear any sounds unless I’ve got headphones in. Then, without warning, the screen started coming off from the rest of it. This morning, I was fully expecting to find it disintegrated

Ozil, Ramsey and the system

In truth, prior to the defeat in Dortmund on Tuesday night, Arsenal’s start to the season had been patchy; a team that looked a little like it was just about being sellotaped together, until Borussia’s ruthless dismantling of a dishevelled looking Arsenal side. It’s reasonably obvious to everybody by now

Time to rotate

Morning all, a quick one for you today as I have to go talk into a microphone very early. “Come on down to Crazy Mick’s Good Time Right Back Who Can Play Centre-Half Emporium! The prices are only famous …”, or something. As is the norm (Norm!) after a game

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Arsenal: Shambolic Arsenal flattered by scoreline

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video Well, that was bad – there’s no two ways about it. As a team performance it was abject; from an individual point of view there were too many players well below par; and overall it was about the worst

Borussia Dortmund preview: Injuries mount + Ozil’s form a concern

As we know from seasons past, Dortmund is not the easiest place to go. Tonight’s game becomes more of a challenge with the news that Nacho Monreal is out, with an injury that will hopefully be only short-term, while Calum Chambers is 50:50 due to tonsillitis, of all things. It

Tactics Column: Welcome to the New Arsenal

Welcome, then, to the New Arsenal. Which, on the face of it, looks not much different to the Old Arsenal, except with a few shiny new stickers on it. Arsenal’s encounter with Manchester City on Saturday was supposed to herald a new kind of Arsenal, one that could compete with

Debuchy injury bad luck, but bad planning makes it worse

Morning all, it’s the start of another week and we’re well and truly into the thick of things now with a trip to Dortmund for our first Champions League tie (proper) of the season. That means the team travelling today but obviously we go without Mathieu Debuchy whose injury on
