• Xhaka? Emery? What Do You Think?
    What a weekend to be away. Yet another Arsenal capitulation, yet more points senselessly dropped. I may have only seen the highlights but mountains have been written about this game, so although everything may have been said I will briefly add my tuppence.

  • Palace At Home – What Could Go Wrong?
    Let’s face it, there won’t be much in the way of change to the team for the visit of Crystal Palace after Thursday. Bernd Leno likely starts behind Calum Chambers, Sokratis Papasthopoulos, David Luiz, and Sead Kolasinac. Granit Xhaka to patrner Matteo Guendouzi behind Mesut, just kidding, Dani Ceballos. Bukayo ... read more

  • Guest Post – iBtM Europa League Preview

  • Punchless Gunners Humiliated Again
    A surprising selection saw Unai Emery play the same team as last time out with the exception of Joe Willock in for Dani Ceballos. Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding, Lucas Torreira, and Alex Lacazette all started on the bench.
