Leicester vs Arsenal – Preview 0

Posted on September 22, 2020 by Harry Kettle

While many fans rarely look twice at the Carabao Cup, it’s still a competition that holds some kind of prestige – if only because it’s been going on for so long now. Arsenal will be entering the field of play this week as they prepare to lock horns with Leicester City in the third round, knowing that a win could set them on their way to another Wembley appearance.

There’s some sense of normality behind people moaning about the Carabao Cup, and even if there are some out there who won’t watch, it’ll be an intriguing game between two of the Premier League’s finest.

Arsenal edge past West Ham at the Emirates 0

Posted on September 20, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal were able to kickstart their new Premier League campaign with a win over Fulham last weekend, and heading into their clash with West Ham United, the expectation was that they’d make it two from two. They did manage to do that, but boy oh boy did they make hard work of it at the Emirates.

At some points it was pretty clear to see that the Gunners just weren’t at the races and while you have to commend them for picking up the three points, there’s nothing wrong in throwing a few criticisms their way, either. Mikel Arteta is still in the early stages of building his first team, and it’s going to take some time before they really start to thrive as a unit.

While Arsenal may have gotten off to a flying start in the Premier League last weekend against Fulham, there are still a handful of issues that need to be resolved. A few of those problems stem from injuries and while the Gunners do have a near enough fully fit squad, there are two players that are still working their way back up to full fitness.

The Carabao Cup question 0

Posted on September 17, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been confirmed by the club that Arsenal will officially begin their Carabao Cup journey next Wednesday when they lock horns with fellow Premier League side Leicester City. While some fans are excited to see some fringe players start or play some kind of role, which seems like what is going to happen, others have questioned whether or not the Carabao Cup should even be happening this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re definitely in the camp of believing the Carabao Cup shouldn’t really exist in its current form for the 2020/21 campaign, and we’re not entirely sure why they’ve gone ahead with it (well, we do – money).

Aubameyang teases new Arsenal contract 0

Posted on September 15, 2020 by Harry Kettle

One of the biggest stories in recent months for Arsenal Football Club has been the ongoing story of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and whether or not he will sign a new contract with the club. After much speculation, it finally seems as if we’re closing in on a decision one way or the other.

The Gabon international has posted an emoji of an hourglass on Twitter, seemingly indicating that we’re going to be finding out more about his future in the next few days – or potentially even hours.

For now, all Arsenal fans can do is sit back and hope that this isn’t just another negotiating tactic.

Arsenal impress in 3-0 win against Fulham 0

Posted on September 14, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Nobody really knew what to expect from Arsenal against Fulham in their Premier League opener this past weekend, but in the end, the Gunners were able to keep their momentum rolling as they eased to a 3-0 win over their London rivals at Craven Cottage.

After a decent enough start from Fulham in which they weren’t afraid to go straight at Arsenal, things fell apart pretty quickly as a goalmouth scramble led to Alexandre Lacazette poking home the opening goal of the game. From that point on Arsenal seemed to be in cruise control, and while there were a few hairy moments for Bernd Leno to deal with, nothing really ever came close to causing him any sustained problems.

Arsenal release new third kit for 2020/21 season 0

Posted on September 10, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Football kits come and go every single season, but in the last few years, some fans have been quite cynical when it comes to the sort of message clubs are trying to send by releasing two or three brand new kits every single year. Regardless of where you come down on that argument, though, it’s forever going to be an important part of fan culture – especially for a team as popular as Arsenal.

The top four desire reignited 0

Posted on September 09, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Even the most optimistic of Arsenal fans will be forced to admit that last season’s Premier League campaign simply wasn’t good enough. The Gunners slipped down into eighth place and stayed there after all 38 games were played. Still, they did manage to win the FA Cup to ensure that they will be playing European football next season, but that doesn’t solve the issue surrounding the league.

Can Mesut Ozil help Arsenal this season? 1

Arsenal’s squad seems certain to look much different in 2020/21 than it did in the previous season. The club have already acquired the services of winger Willian from Chelsea, and the presence of the experienced Brazilian will add another dimension to the Gunners’ attack. The signing of Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille has also been completed, and the 22-year-old is expected to represent the future of the team’s back line. There are things, as well, which won’t change. One of them is Dani Ceballos, who has returned for another season-long loan from Real Madrid.
