Arsenal don’t need the curse of the ex-Hammer to cruise

By | December 4th, 2016|0 Comments

If I were a betting man, which I'm not, I'd have gambled on Carl Jenkinson getting the first goal against his old club, West Ham. The only problem is the 'Corporal' had been dropped. He's lacking confidence, apparently. He played well enough against Man U recently, so I don't see what the problem is. Anyway, Gabriel played at right back instead, which I thought was [...]

Monreal or Gibbs – which is the better option?

By | November 28th, 2016|0 Comments

Let me start by stating that Nacho Monreal is a player I have a lot of time for. I applauded Wenger when he first signed him. Here was a solid left back, who had plenty of positional nous and would not let the club down. Although my view has changed somewhat, I still believe Monreal is an asset. However, if he keeps conceding penalties and [...]

Two points lost or one point gained?

By | November 20th, 2016|0 Comments

Arsenal's draw at Old Trafford may have felt like a win, but perhaps at the end of the season the Gunners may see it as a missed opportunity. It's never going to be easy to roll over Manchester United, especially when they are managed by Mourinho, who has such a good record against Wenger. Mourinho sets out to stop opponents from playing and, in that [...]

Although it can be argued that the Bulgarian side are not the strongest and Arsenal should roll over this sort of opposition, it can't be overestimated how difficult it is to come back from two goals down against any team [...]

The Ox: bench-warmer or star performer?

By | October 28th, 2016|0 Comments

A home draw against the Ox's former club, Southampton in the EFL Cup might seem like a just reward after seeing off Reading so comfortably in the previous round. However, let's not forget the Gunners needed a last-minute goal from Santi Cazorla to overcome the Saints last time around. Therefore, no one can think this will be an easy match, especially as Southampton have only [...]

Theo is no ‘almost man’

By | October 22nd, 2016|0 Comments

I was a bit shocked the other day to pick up the Evening Standard, only to discover that Rio Ferdinand laying into Theo Walcott, calling him an 'almost man'. I suppose it makes a change from 'nearly man', but what Rio is saying is essentially the same: Theo has not delivered quite the way many expected. The timing of these comments are strange, given that [...]
