  • Blues to Lose: Arsenal at Chelsea …….. Pre-Match
    It’s weird to be playing Chelsea in the Premier League again so soon after meeting them at the Emirates in the same competition. Just over three weeks ago we were beaten 1-2 at home by Frank Lampard’s side. Many of us felt it was an unlucky defeat because we played ... read more

  • We need a new Giroud
    Arsenal are looking less like a sinking ship since Mikel Arteta got his hands on the tiller, but recent performances have highlighted a glaring gap in our crew of jolly sailor boys. While we have all bored each other half to death complaining about the absence of a proper defensive ... read more

  • Match report – Same old, same old!
    Arsenal 1 Sheffield United 1 Match Report Same old, same old! We drop points again to a team with nothing more than Effort, Commitment and Organisation. That’s it folks. No amount of team or individual player analysis will, in my opinion, move the debate on, or make me feel more ... read more

  • Arsenal v Sheffield United prematch
    I have to admit to feeling disconsolate after last weeks draw against Crystal Palace. Not because we played badly or gave the game away but because ‘lady luck’ was definitely against us in the way, Torreira went off at half-time,  Palace scored and how Aubameyang went into a tackle that ... read more

  • The Princes and the PEA: who will take advantage of Auba’s absence?
    It’s disappointing news that the club’s appeal against Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s red card has failed and he will miss the next three matches. I know I’m in a minority in thinking the ref’s original decision (yellow card) was correct after Auba’s wild tackle on the Crystal Palace midfielder Max Meyer ... read more

  • How much do the Kroenke’s care if Arsenal are a big club?
    Here on A.A we try and keep everything as positive as possible, both in our comments and topics of conversation. However, we all know that this is not possible at all times because to ignore other, less favourable, aspects would be burying our head in the sand. I for one ... read more

  • Can Gran-Douzi Work?
    0_Arsenal Saturday’s injury to Lucas Torreira should focus the mind on what we do when he’s not available. He went off at half time after some rough-house treatment from Crystal Palace’s players (and with the useless referee having ... read more

  • Excessive Farce: Crystal Palace report and Player Ratings
    If Meghan and Harry have taught us anything it’s that you don’t escape from the Palace unscathed. And scathed we most certainly were: by VAR (again), by the “excessive force” rule, by an unlucky deflection (again), by injuries (again) and by erratic officiating (again). Our 1-1 draw away at Crystal ... read more

  • Chambers out ….. who’s in?
