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

Arsenal 2-2 Man City: Good and bad

Match report – Player ratings – Video Coming out of the ground yesterday there was a weird, subdued atmosphere. I guess it was based on the fact this was a game we probably should have won but could easily have lost. To get pegged back at 2-1 up with seven

Man City preview: Welbeck to start as Arsenal look to click

Morning all, and it’s a busy one as we get set to face Man City. It seems like it’s been an age since our last game. Between the Interlull, worrying about injuries, and everything else that’s gone on, the wait for this has been almost interminable, but here we are

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

As I sit here following a week of the deathly-dull Interlull, more boring than a day in Hull, as the old saying goes, we have time to reflect upon the signing of Danielsan Arantes do Dat Guy Nascimento Santos Welvalho, now known to all as ‘Welé’. In the week I

Wenger and Wilshere on Welbeck + Arsecast 322

Some mornings it’s hard to know where to start. Not because of lack of material, but a glut of it. Arsene Wenger met the press yesterday for the first time since the signing of Danny Welbeck. I’m loathe to add to the madness that has surrounded this story because it’s

Why #rainbowlaces is so important

It may not have escaped your notice last week that Arsenal and betting company Paddy Power produced a video in association with Stonewall, Britain’s leading LGBT charity. The video caused something of a stir across social media, which was soon picked up by the mainstream media. The campaign, rainbow laces,

Things looking up on in the injury front

As this is a time in which we insist on gleaning the maximum from the smallest amount of available information (guilty as charged, your honour), there are some conclusions we can draw from yesterday’s training pics. Mesut Ozil appears to be all right. He was pictured lurking in the background,

More Interlull injury worries + Theo on his comeback

As of yet this morning I haven’t read anything about Alexis, the last Arsenal player to take part in Interlull action, having had his hamstring twanged, his ankle knackered or his knee exploded. This is a good thing because last night against Andorra, Aaron Ramsey looked like he picked up

Welbeck on the mark for England + how his transfer really happened

Morning. It turned out to be a good night for England and Roy Hodgson, and a great one for Danny Welbeck whose two goals ensured a 2-0 win over Switzerland in Basel. Beforehand it felt as if things were going to take their usual turn in the English press, with

Interlull: Ozil’s absence a worry for Arsenal

Welcome to another week and it remains quiet. So much so that I watched some of Georgia v Ireland last night. It seems almost decadent to watch football in the comfort of one’s own home that could easily be found in the local park on a Sunday morning, but needs
