Arsenal vs Southampton – Preview 0

Posted on November 22, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Premier League is set to return to our screens this weekend, and not a minute too soon. While we certainly had an interesting international break it’s time to get back to business, and by business, we mean Arsenal (hopefully) dragging themselves kicking and screaming towards a top four challenge.

It’s going to be one hell of a task for them to get back in the mix, and while the table may not suggest it’s impossible, it will be if Unai Emery isn’t able to get the morale of this team back where it needs to be. Alas, we’ll try and remain positive as the Gunners prepare to return to the Emirates.

Aubameyang ‘postpones contract talks’ 0

According to a report by Sport, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put the talks over a new contract with Arsenal on hold until he finds out how serious the reported interest in his services from Barcelona is.

Admittedly, the Spanish media are far from reliable when it comes to stories such as this one, so it has to be taken with a pinch of salt, but given the situation Arsenal seem to be in at the moment, it does unfortunately make some sense. There were always fears that unless the team improves as a unit and better results start coming soon, those members who do their job properly (and Aubameyang is certainly one of them) would start looking at other clubs.

The Emery question – has the Spaniard brought progress? 0

As you all know, Arsene Wenger took over as Arsenal manager in 1996 and was in charge of the team for 22 years. In that time, he led the team to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups, and the 2006 Champions League final. He unearthed some real gems, dressed them in the Arsenal shirt and with his guidance helped them become actual world beaters.

A look ahead to Arsenal’s immediate future 0

Arsenal’s rise back to the top of English football has turned into more of a collapse than anything else, and that much is just kind of obvious. There seems to be no real plan behind what they’re trying to accomplish, and a lot of that can be placed onto the shoulders of manager Unai Emery. It isn’t all his fault, obviously, because the players need to share some of the blame, but it’s still worth noting that the squad just doesn’t seem to be playing for the man in charge anymore.

A look at the last six 0

Posted on November 19, 2019 by Harry Kettle

It’s time to swallow our pride and take a look at Arsenal’s last six games, as we attempt to figure out what on earth can be done in order to steady the ship at the Emirates. While there have been bright spots throughout the early months of the season, the constant calls for ‘Emery out’ certainly seem to drown out the positives.

Nobody really seems to fully know or understand what’s going to happen next with the club in the next few weeks and months, so instead of worrying about that as we await the final results of the international break, it’s better to glance at what’s already been and figure out what can be done to rectify some of the lingering (and more obvious) issues.

Torreira ‘unhappy’ about new role 0

Lucas Torreira is unhappy about the new role manager Unai Emery has devised for him.

Following his impressive displays for Uruguay at the 2018 World Cup, Torreira was badly wanted by Napoli. Nonetheless, he arrived at the Emirates for just over £26 million, as a specialist defensive midfielder of great ability to read the game and intercept, to stop opposition players, as well as to distribute the ball.

Ceballos doesn’t want Madrid return 0

Posted on November 16, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

After the failed loan switch of Barcelona’s Denis Suarez and Arsenal’s decision not to trigger the option to buy that had been inserted in that deal, the Gunners closed the deal on similar terms with Real Madrid and brought in Dani Ceballos for 2019/20. The only difference is, that apparently at the request of the player himself, no such option has been included this time as the midfielder had plans to return to Madrid and fight for a place in the Santiago Bernabeu sun.

England batter Montenegro with no Arsenal stars 0

Posted on November 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Last night marked England’s 1000th international as a senior team and that, in itself, is an achievement. Thankfully the even bigger achievement was qualifying for UEFA Euro 2020, and they did so in style with an utterly ruthless display of attacking force in the form of a 7-0 battering against Montenegro. The punishment started early as England got into a rhythm within a matter of minutes, and by half time, the Three Lions managed to stick five past their opposition – and they only needed a point to get themselves over the finish line in the first place.

The pros and cons 0

Posted on November 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There have been plenty of divisive figures within Arsenal Football Club over the years, and sometimes there have been too many to count. As the years go by, however, those grudges and divisive issues start to fall away – and in place of them we have new villains and issues, which is kind of a sickening indication of what life itself is like in 2019. But, anyway, moving on.

Today we’re going to run down the things we think are great and the things we think aren’t so great when it comes to good old Unai Emery. We say good old, but of course, it’s well known that Emery has been struggling to really find his footing within the realms of the Emirates over the last few months and beyond.

Embracing the internationals 0

Posted on November 13, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There’s no point in saying otherwise: the international break is a painful thing to endure for the majority of football fans, but as is the case during every single edition of it, we think it’s best to look on the positive side of things as opposed to the negative. Sure, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of berating international teams and their need to play all year round, but that doesn’t always need to be the case. Sometimes, we can take an objective view of things, which we understand can be a bit of a foreign concept to football fans sometimes.
