Arsenal face Leicester in Carabao Cup third round 0

Posted on September 07, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The big focus for English football fans right now is the return of the Premier League, Championship and subsequent lower leagues below that – with most things getting underway this weekend. Alas, while that is certainly viewed as the most important thing of all, there’s also the Carabao Cup to worry about.

The secondary competition is so often pushed to one side and given a bad reputation, and it’s only ever really taken seriously when teams are able to do well in it. This year we can’t picture Mikel Arteta putting too much focus on prioritising the League Cup, but if he does, he’ll be taking note of the fact that the Gunners’ first game will be Leicester City in the third round.

A look at Arsenal’s first six games of the season 0

The Premier League is set to return next weekend as the Gunners prepare to make another push for the top four – and potentially even beyond. It’s been a strong start to the season with the Community Shield win, and things are about to get even more interesting.


This is the kind of game that should be viewed as a must win, and with Fulham being a newly promoted side that are still trying to work out what their best starting XI looks like, we’re going to assume Arsenal will pick up all three points. It may not be particularly convincing, but it’ll be enough.

Arsenal vs Liverpool – Community Shield Preview 0

Posted on August 28, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Well, here we go again.

Less than a month after last season came to an end with Arsenal’s FA Cup final win over Chelsea, we’re right back in the saddle as the Gunners prepare to try and win their second trophy under Mikel Arteta tomorrow afternoon. They’ll be locking horns with Premier League champions Liverpool, and while they may have been able to beat the Reds towards the end of their triumphant PL campaign, lightning rarely strikes twice against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Today, we’ll be giving our thoughts on how we believe Arsenal are going to fare in yet another big game at Wembley in which they’re considered to be the underdogs.

Arteta confident ahead of the new season 0

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the Community Shield clash with Liverpool on Saturday, Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta expressed a large dose of confidence ahead of the upcoming season.

The Gunners have had an interesting summer so far. Their main priority remains binding captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a new contract with his current one expiring next year, and that now seems to be very close to happening. Former Chelsea winger Willian has arrived on a three-year deal, and the arrival of defender Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille OSC is expected in the next few days.

It’s almost time to dive headfirst back into the world of domestic football for Arsenal as they prepare to lock horns with Liverpool in the Community Shield. Prior to the curtain-raiser taking place, though, has provided supporters with an update on the injury status of a handful of players.

Wolves close in on Maitland-Niles signing 0

Posted on August 25, 2020 by Harry Kettle

The summer transfer window has already been pretty hectic with clubs up and down the Premier League bringing players in and selling players out in equal measure. Arsenal have been no different, and while there are plenty of reasons to be excited about the prospects that Mikel Arteta wants to bring into the fold at the Emirates, you also have to question some of his outgoings.

One of the biggest, allegedly, is going to be Ainsley Maitland-Niles. At the age of just 22, the youngster has been heavily linked with a move to fellow top flight club Wolverhampton Wanderers. It doesn’t appear as if the deal has been signed, sealed and delivered just yet, but Nuno Espirito Santo does seem to be closing in on his man.

Arsenal’s assistant coach Freddie Ljungberg has confirmed that he will be leaving the Gunners in order to pursue new opportunities away from North London. The popular Invincibles squad member has been a loyal member of the backroom staff for a long time now, but he has made the decision to try and further his blossoming career in management elsewhere. The following statement comes from

Announcing his decision, Freddie said: “I have decided to leave my first-team assistant coaching role at Arsenal to progress my management experience. I have been involved with this club on and off since 1998 and am grateful for all the opportunities they have given me both as a player and as a coach.

Arsenal Women lose in Champions League quarter-finals 0

Posted on August 23, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been one hell of a ride, but Arsenal Women have finally seen their UEFA Champions League journey come to an end at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain. They did equalise after going behind through Beth Mead, but they just couldn’t overcome the power and quality of the French side.

Yet, while there is a certain layer of disappointment in defeat, there is hope that the Gunners can continue to serve as one of English football’s greatest ever clubs – and that goes for the women’s team as well as the men’s.

What direction will the Arsenal Women go in next?

Arsenal fans now know who they’re scheduled to face on the opening day on September 12th, as the club prepares to travel across London to take on newly promoted Fulham.

Arsenal release new away kit 0

Posted on August 20, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s safe to say that the revelation of new kits ahead of a fresh season tends to be a pretty exciting moment for football fans, even though they’ll be well aware of the fact that they’d need to pay an arm and a leg just to be able to have their own version of it.

Arsenal fans were pretty happy when they saw the reveal of the new home kit, but now that the away has been officially released, there are some mixed reactions. We tend to think it actually looks pretty good, as it pays tribute to the Marble Hall from the Highbury days. Of course, some just won’t feel as if it’s their kind of style, but at least the club has tried to mix it up and go with something a bit different.
