A look at Arsenal’s 2019/20 Premier League fixture list – Part 2 0

Posted on June 13, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Boxing Day – Bournemouth (A)

Heading down to the south coast on Boxing Day isn’t going to be ideal, but we aren’t exactly expecting Bournemouth to do much next season. They’ll probably be down in the relegation mix, whereas Arsenal, by this point, should be right in the hunt for a place in the top four. This should be another win, no questions asked.

Chelsea Home – December 28th

A look at Arsenal’s 2019/20 Premier League fixture list – Part 1 0

Posted on June 13, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Premier League fixture list for 2018/19 has been officially released, and that means one thing: it’s time to get excited. The Premier League is considered by many to be the premier form of football entertainment throughout the domestic game, and in truth, it’s kind of difficult to argue with that thought process.

Of course, one of the primary reasons we believe that is because of Arsenal, despite how much they’ve let us down over the course of the last few months. The Gunners will be returning to Premier League action in August, which in itself is a pretty exciting prospect. After reading through every single fixture on the list we’ve decided to pick out some of the most important dates, so that you can remember to skip your own wedding in order to get to Sheffield United away. We’re only partly joking.

How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 2 0

Posted on June 12, 2019 by Harry Kettle

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017

They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.

Anfield – 54,074

It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison.

How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 1 0

We may be favouring the Gunners in saying this (we definitely are), but we tend to believe that the Emirates is one of the best stadiums in world football. You can make all the jokes you want about Arsenal as a football club, but when it comes to stadiums, they’re right up there.

We mean that in terms of overall quality, to be perfectly clear, but a lot of folks often look at another statistic: and that statistic is the capacity. Despite the fact that the actual attendance figures don’t often match up to the capacity of the grounds, that’s one of the primary focal points. We tend to think that’s a little bit silly, but alas, here we are.

Arsenal’s golden oldies – Part 2 0

Mesut Ozil – 30

Mesut Ozil’s age has nothing to do with why we want to see him leave Arsenal Football Club, but it does make us feel a little bit old. We still remember when he was first bursting onto the scene with the German national team, which was almost a decade ago now. He’s had a decent enough career along the way, but we all know that there have been a few issues.

David Ospina – 30

Arsenal’s golden oldies – Part 1 0

Posted on June 11, 2019 by Harry Kettle

It’s the summer time over here in England, and as such, the domestic game isn’t exactly all too busy right now – as you’d probably expect. Despite that the British weather seems to be intent on raining us all into misery, but you know, that’s another story for another day.

Today, we want to talk about Arsenal’s golden oldies, aka the oldest members of the current squad. That may seem a little bit disrespectful, and we understand that, but it’s just a light hearted way of analysing the quality of these players. We all know that once you reach your thirties people tend to start talking about the future, and how much time you’ve got left at the highest level. While that may seem incredibly unfair, it’s just the way that it is (or, you know, ‘it is what it is’ for all those Love Island fans out there).

We’ve gone on and on about the negatives surrounding Arsenal Football Club for too long now, and we think it’s time that we all start bringing some positivity back to the Emirates. We know that it’s been a pretty disappointing few months after the team’s collapse in the Premier League and Europa League final loss, and we can understand that. However, the beauty of football is that we can forget all about it pretty quickly – as long as the right kind of steps are taken towards improvement.

We aren’t going to pretend like we know all of the behind the scenes details from the summer transfer window, because that isn’t even remotely close to being the truth. We know about as much as the average person could ever hope to, and we can only really base our thoughts and opinions off of what we see being released on a day to day basis.

Arsenal’s Women’s World Cup stars 0

Posted on June 09, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The 2018 FIFA World Cup was a great time for football fans, mainly because, you know, it was the World Cup. If you fast forward twelve months you’ve got the same fans moaning that there’s not enough football to enjoy during the summer, and that just seems a bit bizarre to us. In addition to the Nations League, Africa Cup of Nations and Copa America, you’ve also got the Women’s World Cup which is currently taking place over in France.

Congrats, Mesut! 0

We all have players that we hate and sometimes outright despise in the world of football, and that, to an extent, is a bit too silly when you really think about it. Sure, we may not like some of the things they do both on and off the pitch, but at the end of the day they’re just trying to do their best (most of the time) for the badge on the shirt.
