Ox ham, Bellerin’s new deal + Arsecast 344

Happy Friday to you. Or, as we say in Irish, Rith mé ar nós na gaoithe. Which means ‘I ran like the wind’. This was one of the only phrases I could ever remember in Irish so I’d put it in all the essays I ever wrote. Until one day

Can Theo Walcott dance to Arsenal’s new tune?

When Arsenal hit a good spell of form, notable trends emerge in the scorelines which invite inference. In 2013-14, Arsenal led the Premier League for much of the season. Injuries to Ramsey, Walcott and Özil and Olivier Giroud’s personal crisis saw the screws come loose and the Gunners’ title bid

Other people’s football is fun sometimes

Before we go anywhere this morning, yes I know we lost 3-1 at home to Monaco. I realise this makes our passage to the quarter-finals of the Champions League extremely difficult. It’s not impossible, but very unlikely. I am aware of our situation and how badly we played that night.

Welbeck, Giroud, Monreal & Walcott’s challenge

Morning all. I hope you’re still basking in the warm glow of Monday night. Sure, the moment has passed but it still feels good. That we’ve managed to put an end to such an atrocious record at Old Trafford is a lovely consequence of reaching the FA Cup semi-finals. After

Tactics Column: Arsenal defeat United in stretched encounter

When Danny Welbeck pounced on Antonio Valencia’s errant pass midway through the second-half and slotted into an empty net, it hit home just how much Manchester United v Arsenal has changed over the years. For one, the match-winner has swapped sides, but it was the frequency with which the ball

Man Utd preview: A night of intense pressure ahead

I think it’s safe to say that even in this time of hyperbole, when a Super Sunday can be Burnley v Leicester which, with all due respect to both teams, isn’t that super at all, this is a big, big game tonight. An FA Cup quarter-final is always a pretty

The life of Riley

Not a lot going on this morning unfortunately, although I see our old pals the referees are making headlines again. The prodigious and consistent ineptitude is such that you might almost start to think it’s deliberate. The man in question yesterday, Anthony Taylor. He sent West Brom down to 10

Gabriel, Welbeck and remembering Oleg

Morning all. There appears to be a measure of *boilk* today, so a quick Saturday round-up is all you’re getting. We’ll start with Gabriel who is going to miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring strain. It used to be the case that you couldn’t be considered an Arsenal player under
