Arsenal finally get a fox in the box

You've heard of the phrase: 'growing into the role', haven't you? Well, that's exactly what's happened to Theo Walcott who, as I've said for as many years as people would care to listen, is a goal predator. I was so impressed by Theo's instincts in front of goal that I was even moved to call [...]

Arsenal’s win over Hornets overshadowed by transfer buzz

Perhaps attempting to complete transfer business off the pitch had the right effect on the players on it, as Arsenal cruised past Watford away 3-1 to record their first win of the season. The team played with a flair not seen before during this campaign, with Xhaka showing off his array of passing skills from [...]

Arsenal should say ‘hello’ to transfer kitty

Nine points from 3 games over the Xmas period, featuring two tough away games at West Ham and Newcastle and the difficult visit of the manager less Cardiff, trying to impress their manager-in-waiting, Solskjaer.

I admit he plays a part going forward, albeit a small one: he's a link in the chain. However, defensively he's a liability. He doesn't track [...]

Still top of 2 leagues

'We are top of the league' shout the fans and you can't knock the Arsenal right now! Even Rosicky is playing well. In bursts, at least. I've accused him of 'cheating' in the past, in as much as he sometimes stands still off the ball when we're defending, but he seems to get away with [...]

Podolski/Uchida swap deal on?

Arsenal are going to busy before transfer deadline day. Yes, it's true. We've heard it from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Arsene Wenger has made it clear that much-needed additions will be brought in, but the question is could one of them be Atsuto Uchida of Schalke 04.There's been plenty of talk suggesting that [...]
