In their own words

I’m afraid that there’s nothing to blog about this morning. All we’ve got is Arsenal players talking about other Arsenal players. On the one hand I’m tempted not to do anything at all, on the other I know people want something to read as they go to work, or arrive

Twitter guff and the things we should buy in January

Pretty quiet again this morning, which is only to be expected after we won a game. It’s not as if you can really go to town on what a great performance it was against Sunderland so under the circumstances quietness is par for the course. Yesterday on Twitter, Santi Cazorla

Defenders get a boost + some Arseblog changes

Morning all. Not a lot going on today as we carry on from the 2-0 win over Sunderland. After that game the main issue is the fitness of Kieran Gibbs who left the pitch with what looked like a hip injury and any absence there would leave us very short

A little bank holiday rotation

It’s gonna be a short one this morning due to the fact it’s a bank holiday here. Not that I’m doing anything particularly special, and I’ve been up since 6.45 anyway, but it just feels like a few hundred words less than normal is something of a gift to myself.

Sunderland 0-2 Arsenal: Alexis on fire

Match report – By the numbers – Player ratings – Video It’s hard to know how to do this particular blog because do we need another examination of what’s not happening for us right now? Like Anderlecht in midweek we didn’t really perform as well as we can, but in

Sunderland preview: Balance the back four

A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I’d give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don’t get me wrong, I’d take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we’ve conceded this season. The team

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Wonderful news from weekend last as Woolwich saw off the challenge of European titans Hull City Tigers. Hull, lest we forget, are twelve time winners of the European Cup, 37 time winners of the English Premier League, and due to administrative error have won La Liga fifteen times, Serie A

Let them eat chips

“This fee was proposed by myself and Lord Harris (of Peckham) for the wide range of services provided to Arsenal Football Club by Kroenke Sports and Entertainment.” This was Chairman Sir Chips Keswick’s answer at last week’s Annual General Meeting when quizzed about the controversial £3m fee extracted from the

What Per is missing + an Invincible Arsecast 327

Morning all, somewhat *boilked* this morning but that’s school night pints for you. Some of the people I was with were partaking of the brown wine so I’m delighted to have avoided that and will revel in their pain today. Ahead of Sunderland tomorrow we await team news in the

Anderlecht 1-2 Arsenal: lucky Gunners get massive three points

Match report – Player ratings – Video Ok, I think the first thing to do this morning is to say how utterly delighted I am with the win. Under the circumstances, as the game went into the final few minutes, I wasn’t expecting us to snatch a point, let alone
