Arsenal ride their luck but take three points against Bolton

Sometimes you need a bit of luck to win a football match and Arsenal had a couple of lucky moments yesterday. Lucky moment 1 - The Bolton goal: What I mean by this is, leaving the awful defending aside, we're lucky the ball went into the net because William Gallas stuck his hand out to try and stop it. Had...

Saturday round-up

Right then, a fair bit of stuff to cover this morning. Arsene Wenger says the club wants to qualify for the Champions League for football reasons not financial ones and that the club can adapt if we don't make it this season. He talks a good talk but make no mistake, failure to achieve a top 4 finish this season...

Arsecast 23 – We must kill Bolton

Yawn. I've got Friday on my mind. Friday the 13th....woooooooooooooo. Ahead of the Bolton game there are no new injuries to worry about but hopefully the boss will shuffle his pack a bit. Given Bolton's physical approach I'd be inclined to put Gallas at left back, bring Senderos back into the centre and replace Eboue with Hoyte. In fact, I'd...

Why Arsenal might make me invent the time machine

Morning everyone. It's a quiet one again. The biggest story this morning is Bolton's Kevin Davies saying that Arsenal are 'troubled' and that they expected us to lose to Newcastle. That's how fucking bad it's got. Bolton are expecting us to lose to Newcastle. If any further motivation were needed for Saturday's game then this is it. Kevin Davies, let's face...

What Thierry should wear on his t-shirt

Morning all. Not a great deal happening, I have to say. We have Cesc Fabregas pretty much summing up what every Arsenal fan is thinking when he says: We have to beat Bolton because we have to fight for the fourth place and be in Europe next season, then forget about this season. He's not wrong there. We have to win...

Arsenal stop the rot but still fail to score

Well, what can you say about yesterday's game? The less the better, I'd have thought. I once cut the top of my thumb off with one of those big rotary meat slicers you see in delis and that was more fun that watching that game yesterday. Another strange team selection/formation with Abou Diaby looking like he was playing as a...

Three points a must against Newcastle today

Arsene Wenger has said Arsenal's hunt for 4th place has now become 'urgent' but he's trying, for obvious reasons to stay positive. He says: Now we just think about regrouping, and not feel sorry too much and not be down too much because in two days we have a big game again. It is very important that we do not...

I think we're in real trouble here, folks.

So we lost our first game at the Grove yesterday as West Ham, with pretty much their only shot of the game, scored while Arsenal, with about 602 shots, didn't. It's too long to go through the list of all the chances but we could have been 3 or 4-0 up in the first 15 minutes but when we didn't...

Saturday round-up

So, a chance to put the pain of the double Scouse defeats behind us as we take on West Ham at home today. In team news Eboue is fit so the boss will stick with the totally awesome back four that were totally awesome against Liverpool. He says he wants to give them a chance to show what good...

Thoughts on Kroenke's arrival and Thierry's departure – Arsecast 22 out!

Talk about your calm before the storm. After a week of nothing much there's probably too much to talk about this morning. The main news is that Stan Kroenke has, as expected, bought ITV's 9.9% share in Arsenal Football Club. He says: Arsenal are one of the most respected football clubs in the world. We appreciate their outstanding legacy, sporting tradition...

Daniel Alves linked, news round-up

An early start this morning due to me being a complete and utter moron, even more than usual. Still - early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, Morcombe and Wise. I have to say this week has been the slowest 'football' week I can remember for a long time. You can get used to international weeks being...

Flamini leaving because of rumoured white kit. Or not.

A depressing evening watching Liverpool hammer PSV in Holland last night. Certainly our Champions League exit to a team as poor as they are has to rank as the worst of Arsene Wenger's reign. On the other hand two legs against Liverpool in our current form probably wouldn't have been much fun anyway. One man not enjoying himself at the...
