Kos facing more time out :: Wenger on Ramsey’s form

Good morning from the rainiest place on earth. As we have no match today I took the liberty of sleeping in a bit. It has led to me question why it is I don’t it more often. Anyway, a quick round up for you this Saturday morning, beginning with the

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

First we turn to Mighty Arsenal’s crushing defeat of Burnley Casuals this weekend last. Burnley are a romantic, motley but valiant crew of stevedores, milkmen, meatpackers, bottlewashers and stable-lads who have somehow found themselves in the top division of English football despite being not very good at it.

Anderlecht preview + Walcott contract talks begin

Champions League action tonight as we face Anderlecht in the reverse of that extraordinary game a couple of weeks ago. It looked as if we were going to drop more points away from home, instead two late goals from Gibbs and Podolski meant we came home with all three. It

Tactics Column: Flamini, Arteta provided base for Alexis to flourish

Arsenal fans clamouring for a new defensive midfielder might have seen significance in Mikel Arteta’s substitution on 63 minutes in the 3-0 win over Burnley, or at least, the symbolic nature of it. Because Arteta was once the undroppable; the metronome in a team who love to pass the ball.
