Arsenal’s new 2020/21 home kit released 0

Posted on July 20, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Every single season we get the release of a brand new home kit for pretty much every major team across the European football landscape, and the same is true for Arsenal. It’d be nice to see some teams keep the same kit for two straight seasons but in this era, that’s rarely going to happen.

The Gunners have released the following number which, straight off the bat, feels a little bit underwhelming in comparison to last year. We aren’t big fans of how the collar has been designed, the red/white ratio looks more like an Ajax kit and the navy trim, while nice to some, just doesn’t really fit in that well.

Football didn’t come home – but Arsenal can 0

All England fans watched in horror on Sunday night as yet another penalty shootout heartbreak cost the Three Lions their chance at winning Euro 2020. It was a familiar tale of disappointment and yet, the overriding feeling of pride for the squad is something that we don’t think will ever go away.

Arsenal supporters have had to endure a similar feeling of “so close, yet so far” for quite some time now and this season, we’re pretty sure that isn’t going to fly as Mikel Arteta knows the stakes involved with another big failure.

Arsenal players return for pre-season 0

London Colney is calling and Arsenal’s non-international stars have answered the call.

The players who haven’t been out and about at Copa America or Euro 2020 are finally ready to get back to work for some pre-season training as the club finalises their plans for pre-season friendlies. In some ways it feels like only yesterday they were out there playing in the final game of the campaign but in others, the Euros has allowed us to forget about some of the horrors we had to witness towards the end of last season.

A look at Arsenal’s first six Premier League games 0

Whilst we may still be in the midst of Euro 2020 and Copa America, it certainly feels as if there’s momentum building for the start of the new Premier League campaign. We’re just over a month away now and all 20 teams will be gearing up for what could prove to be the most competitive edition of the EPL yet.

Prior to all that, though, we thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the first six Permier League games of the season that Arsenal Football Club will have to face.

Arsenal reveal summer schedule 0

Posted on July 05, 2021 by Harry Kettle

We all need a bit of balance in our lives and the summer tends to provide us with that as much as it possibly can – but, then again, it’s also fun to get ready and excited for a whole new domestic football season.

Arsenal fans are currently spreading themselves out over a few different international tournaments but pretty soon, that’ll no longer be the case. We’re just over a month away from the Premier League getting underway again and while that may seem scary, it’s also good to know that something resembling normality could be right around the corner.

North London derby fixtures set 0

The new Premier League campaign is going to be upon us within a matter of months but prior to that, fans are given the June treat of finding out the order in which they’ll play out their 38 fixtures. We now know Arsenal will start the season against Brentford but, as we all know, the most important two games when the list is released revolve around the North London derby.

TV schedules will likely cause a shift in the date and time but as of this writing, Arsenal will play Tottenham at the Emirates on September 25 and at the TH Stadium on January 15.

Arsenal start season against Brentford 0

Posted on June 17, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal fans weren’t happy with finishing down in eighth place again and we can’t say that we blame them. The Premier League is where a team like the Gunners should be able to thrive but in the last few years, they’ve done anything but. Their main aim, now that they don’t have the Europa League to deal with, will be to make a sustained push for the top four.

Champions League football is the goal and if they’re going to go after it, they need to get off to a good start – and that start will be against play-off winners Brentford.

The 2020/21 season analysis 0

Another season has been and gone for Arsenal Football Club and while there were a few bright sparks, it was a largely disappointing campaign for Mikel Arteta’s men. Today, we’re going to take a look at the four main competitions the Gunners were in and how they fared.

Premier League

After winning three of their first four games, Arsenal only one won of their next ten and proceeded to destroy all hopes they may have had of finishing in the top four – or even top six. They may have ended the season strongly but when you finish up down in eighth, it really doesn’t matter what you’ve been able to do in a handful of games that don’t really mean much.

Why Neves would be a huge signing for Arsenal 0

Posted on June 07, 2021 by Harry Kettle

The transfer rumour mill is bound to churn out some absolute belts as we proceed through the summer and we’ve already got quite a tasty one to try and digest. It involves Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves and the process of him potentially moving to Arsenal which, according to reports, could be possible for a fee of just £35 million.

Some have questioned whether or not he’d be worth the money given the season Wolves have had, but anyone who has watched him throughout the course of a 90-minute game knows just how influential he is.

Arteta nominated for EPL Manager of the Month 0

Posted on May 26, 2021 by Harry Kettle

While the entire season as a whole will be viewed as a failure, Arsenal’s end to the Premier League season was pretty much perfect. In the month of May, they were able to win all five of their PL fixtures against Newcastle, West Brom, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Brighton – scoring 11 goals and conceding just two in the process.

Why the Gunners weren’t able to show that kind of resolve when it matters the most remains to be seen but as per, Arteta may end up being rewarded anyway after it was announced he was in the running to win the PL Manager of the Month award for May. He’s up against Marcelo Bielsa of Leeds, David Moyes of West Ham and Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool, all of whom also enjoyed pretty strong ends to the campaign.
