  • Arsenal need to focus on creators in the transfer market
    Arsenal’s biggest problem this season has been scoring goals. 32 goals in 25 Premier League games equals 1.28 goals a game. Only 3 times during 28 years of Premier League football have Arsenal averaged less goals per game – the peak years of George Graham’s “boring boring Arsenal” – 1992/93, ... read more

  • A 4-0 win built of defensive solidity
    When analysing a 4-0 win it is simplistic to say that it was due to Arsenal’s miss-firing forwards finally getting it together. But the truth is Arsenal’s biggest win of the season was built on weeks of defensive improvement. Mikel Arteta’s first job at the club was to improve us ... read more

  • Now it’s in the OED, do Arsenal fans have the green light to call Spurs “Yids”?
    I always remember back at Highbury, one game there was a note in the Arsenal programme. It was asking fans to refrain from us signing the Sol Campbell song to the tune of DJ Otzi’s “Hey Baby”. It went off “Hey, Hey Yiddo, you scum, I wanna know, where you ... read more

  • Goal Scoring – It’s an old mans game
    Yesterday I discussed about how being the wrong side of 30 does not suddenly stop Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by being a top class striker. A look around the top scorers of Europe tells a story of the “old men of football” outperforming the youngsters: The top two in England – 33-yeard-old ... read more

  • Age ain’t nothing but a number for Aubameyang

  • Arsenal pair on brink as team prepare for Dubai break

  • Why has Dani Ceballos fallen out of favour at Arsenal?
    It usually takes a foreign player a few weeks, even a few months to acclimatise to Premier League football. Players coming from Spain have often struggled with the higher paced, more physical side of English football. Dani Ceballos has not needed time to settle. He has taken to the Premier ... read more

  • Do Arsenal finally have their Luis Suarez?
    I am usually reluctant to jump on the bandwagon of a young player after a handful of good games. Often you will end up disappointed, as the player becomes overhyped without really having performed consistently. Take Kostantinos Mavropanos as an example. After 1 OK game against Manchester United, people were ... read more
